My little dude is 10 weeks now.
Anyone think we need a 4th tri thread? Would love to know how everyone else in 4th tri is doing?

It would definitely be nice to have a 4th tri thread. I find I don't come on MD every day now I don't have a specific thread to post on. How is your little man??
S is 12 weeks now! We get lots of smiles and chatting, but no laughs yet despite me trying!! He's putting on weight well I think but not sleeping so well (3 wakes a night still, no improvement in months!)

Lovely to hear how you and your babies are getting on. Naomi is nearly 12 weeks and is mostly a delight. Not keen on decent naps in the day but sleeps well at night, going from about 10 through till about 4.30 most nights. Lots of smiles and gurgling and starting to laugh. Definitely takes more after her biggest brother in all this rather than the younger of the two.

I will update properly. William is 10 weeks and is doing well. He is just starting to fall into more of a pattern with stuff. He is napping well (so long as we are at home, if we are out in the car etc its all up and down!) He has gone to sleep now. Well get a 3/4 hour stretch out of him and then he wakes either every 1hr 45 or 2 hours and feeds. It's a bit tiring and annoying as sometimes he is barely feeding at all before sleeping again. Will see how it goes and then maybe a bit of refusal from me may help?
His older brother loves him so much he nearly squashes him on a regular basis from his over enthusiastic cuddles!
Oh, and me, post section it's like it never happened. I'm amazed, I felt better at 7 weeks than I did at 7 months last time.
Hope some other ladies pop in too.

It's so nice to hear from you all! I would love a 4th tri thread as I too don't feel like I have anywhere to post, when I get the time to post that is!!
R is 7 weeks and such a contended baby now. He is over his cows milk allergy and has really settled down now the new formula is in his system and is working a treat. He is putting weight on nicely! Wakes about once or twice in the night and has been going from about 10-4 most nights which has been amazing!!
We got some laughter yesterday and he is so smiley. His big sister adores him and can't do enough to help me with him which is lovely.
AFM - I feel amazing post ELCS and I'm even starting to workout now. I will lose this baby weight and hopefully some from last time too, ha ha! But seriously my scar has healed nicely and I feel positively grand :)

Hello all! C is 9 weeks today! Cant believe how quickly that has flown. She is fantastic, colic is setlling down, she takes around 9 ozs a feed (lil fatty), she is full of smiles (not wind) and just generally gorgeous. Hubby and I are completely besotted with her. Im doing really well too now, wound infection has completely cleared up and fully healed. I feel fabby and am getting my haircut today to celebrate lol. Time to get back to my old self with the added bonus of C. Bring on the next one! (you can tell teething, weaning and toilet training are a way off cant you hahahahaha). Big hugs to all, miss having a thread to come and read every day :( xxxx

Its lovely to hear how you're all doing, sounds like our tri babies are all very well behaved! I really miss posting on the tri threads so its nice to catch up.
S is doing well and I keep my fingers crossed every day that it continues! He has a little reflux which makes him a bit grizzly sometimes but gaviscon is helping, as well as keeping him upright as much as poss. Its worse during the day, he doesn't nap much but he's a dream at night, going 5 hours, feed, then another 3/4 hours so I'm very lucky there. Had a slightly shaky start with BFing as S had tongue tie and my pph meant that my supply took a while to establish but after getting the tt snipped privately and a few days feeding non stop we've got the hang of it now and I love it.
I'm recovering well physically now although still a bit tired and anaemic. I still feel a bit haunted by his birth and can get myself quite upset thinking about it but each day is easier and I'm arranging a birth reflections appointment at the hospital which I think will help too.
My H is amazing with S and has been fantastic at looking after me too, I luffs him even more for being such a great daddy

Hi ladies lovely to hear how fab all you mummies and littles ones are doing. O is doing wonderful, nearly 8 weeks old and weighing 11IB now, he sleeps pretty well usually up once a night. I have recovered well from my EMCS and have started back running last week which feels good. Its odd to think of life before he came along now!
popcorn sorry to hear the birth is still upsetting for you, I hopr you get your appt soon as im sure it will help you get over the trauma better, once its been talked through with you

I mainly lurk these days too.
J is 10 weeks today. We had a rough start with tongue tie issues and mastitis but all fine now. J is so much more relaxed than her sister. Sleeping fine and feeding well. Dawn loves her tobits a d is always "helping"! Today she is teaching Jenny wheels on the bus (help me).
Getting lots of really big smiles and lots of chat. She loves having a conversation with you. She'll also happily take an expressed bottle too. Makes me so much more relaxed as I don't always need to be available. No idea what she weighs. Really should go get her weighed.
Nice to see how everyone else is doing x
