Oh my gosh ladies, how cute do your baby girls look in their Christmas outfits!
Rainbowsunshine, yes to the numb feeling, it's so weird. My friend said hers took over a year to feel normal again 😕 I've not got that problem with the glue, they must have used something different on mine. My poor belly is pretty bruised though from the anti-clotting injections. They sent me home with 35 days worth to do 😭 When I asked why I had to do it for so long (the normal is 10 days) I was told it was due to the pre-eclampsia. Worst part of my day going that!

So cute in their Christmas dresses :D ❤️
The glue is a problem I'm having but I don't want to pick at it incase I hurt the scar, iv felt so sick after everything I eat since the section but after 5 days it doesn't hurt or anything any more :)
Thuper Omg the injections :( iv got 6 weeks worth and been getting partner to do mine because I can't face doing them..iv been putting them in my leg 7pm every night is worst part of my day now lol
Anyone else given baby a dummy? We wernt going to but health visitor said that he might be comfort eating (I think that sounds mad) but he crys for food and does his feeding ques like every half hour for the past few days and barley touches the bottle be because he's not really hungey, we have given him a dummy a few hours ago and he's stopped crying for food now so could be working? Hoping he goes back to crying for food very 3/4 hours like he was xx

Lovely catching up and reading everything. We came home yesterday so trying to get into the swing of things. So in love with baby girl who we still haven't named!
We were in the local paper as she was the first Christmas day baby in the hospital lol!
She is so good! I'm a bit sore and have been trying to process the whole labour. I'm going to write it up now which I think will help.
Photo of the baby today

I am also on the injection for 6 weeks defo not something I enjoy doing
ive also given a dummy Rebecca and she settles for longer and is great in the night if she won't settle been up a lot last night 😒 she does have abit of a cold but she spewed the whole bottle up on her last feed so by half 5 I decided it was time to get up and of course she's flat out now and I'm wide awake

I'm quite fortunate so far that my little lady seems to sleep quite well (she is only 3 days old today though, I hope it continues)
We're up for scheduled night feeds a few times in the night and she's feeding on demand in the day
As a first time mummy we had the first wet poop yesterday which she continued to do whilst I was trying to change her that got everywhere. Her crying because she was cold made me cry a lot too! Silly hormones.
We survived the wet poo though and I feel like my milk is on its way in, so all in all I think we're doing well!

Shan1, I remember that so well - as son as baby started pooing, i'd start to change her nappy and then get poo squirted on - happened many a time!
We thought as there quite a few babies here now (we think all but one), it was time to kick you off your brand new December 2017 Babies thread!
Please do come on over to the new thread, and tell us how you and your baby are doing, how the feeding is going, if the visitors are driving you mad, or whatever you feel like chatting about.
We will close this birth club once all the babies have arrived, so please do come and check out your new thread, hit the green Follow button so you don't miss a post.

Mother in law visited yesterday. As soon as she arrives she addresses me by saying 'hi fatty'... We're not overly close. Hubs said I was being oversensitive by being phased by it. I brushed it off at the time for the sake of the little one but as a woman, you would never dream saying that to someone 3 days postpartum!
Rant over, little Elizabeth is doing really well. Only lost 3 percent of her body weight rather than the 10 percent that some babies lose. We're breast feeding on demand so she's eating plenty (glutton like her dad haha)
Milk came in properly yesterday so very emotional yesterday and today. I am feeling positive though so just crying over nothing haha.
Honestly couldn't feel any more joy than I do with this little one.
How is everyone getting on?

Urghh mother in laws iv got one of the horrible ones too 😂...yea she shouldn't have said that what a cow :/ x
Glad Elizabeth is doing well she's super cute!
Me and odin are doing good, iv stopped crying over nothing now :D think the baby blues have finally passed, hes such a good baby he has a feed at midnight then wakes up at 3:30am for a feed then 7am..my milk didn't come in :( so bottle feeding but trying not to beat my self up about it...been comparing my baby photos with my mum :D she said that it's like looking back in time when she looks at him x

Rebecca he does totally look like you! He's such a cutie. So much hair! Did you have lots of heartburn with him? Haha
Yeah I thought it was very insensitive to be honest but there you go, I'll show the little one that I can rise above it!
How is everyone with visitors? We requested the first few days to ourselves but people are starting to trickle in now.

I’ve been giving a dummy too. Helps sometimes and other times she’s really not interested.
Ariella has a cold bless her. Really snotty and gunky eyes :( Feel so bad I can’t fix it. She’s been so cuddly today and will only sleep on me or hubby. Loving the cuddles but hate that she’s a bit poorly.
Haha Shan omg yes I’m still getting used to the nappies too and that there can be an explosion any time! 🙈 Couple of times now I’ve either not got the nappies switched quick enough or she’ll go literally as I’m about to do the nappy up!
Omg that’s horrible what your MIL said!! 😮 I would have told her to get out the house and she definitely wouldn’t have had any baby cuddles.
Aww I love seeing photos of all these beautiful babies 😍 Rainbowsunshine Gracie is adorable! I have the same outfit for Ariella to wear tomorrow 😄 Can’t beat a tiny princess dress hehe.
Wow Rebecca he does look like you! The hair is identical!! He’s got the same sleep pattern as Ari too, she’s up the same times for food, also bottle feeding because breast didn’t work for me. As long as they aren’t hungry that’s the main thing ☺️ Definitely can’t get hung up on it. Glad the baby blues have passed now!
Ohh I’ll head over to the new thread now 😄
