I did this when I had Isobelle.
I miss the daily/weekly tri threads and love being able to discuss new born issues & how we're all getting on (as well as weekly pics!!).
I'll start 1 & hope to see others on there.
(I think 4th tri goes up to 3 months but I don't see why it has to be limited to babies of that age!!)

I'll join you lovely... I think we just scrape in as 4th tri!!
A is now 12+1 and he is such a happy baby..always smiling until he needs a feed ;-) His overnight sleep is now consistently an 8hr stint followed by a 3/4 hour stint, and he guzzles the nightfeed so we're back in bed pretty quickly! He's taking 5/6 oz every 3/4 hours during the day.
Last weigh in 2 weeks ago we were 14lb 12 and on 91st line, 75th for length. He's comfortably in 3-6 month clothing and some of that is beginning to look snug :'(
Whilst it's easier the second time round with a newborn, it's not as easy handling 2 children at times but I think we've found our groove now. After a shaky start O is now besotted with his little brother!
I can't post pics from my phone but will try later on the computer x

Iv replied to this mornings thread but will c&p
Good morning! Was lurking whilst feeding. Congrats again on the arrival if Rafferty, although how dare he not wait the extra 2 days so he could be Thea's twin
Well Thea is now 4 days old weirdly it feels like we have always had her and we are all besotted, with both her brothers competing to do things for her, which she will LOVE as she gets older . Section was absolutely awful, I'd say it was in line with my crash section under general anaesthetic with Lucas although worse in parts as we heard what was going on, she was stuck as transverse and they crash called paeds and at the same time I was bleeding lots and kind of out of it but not iyswim. Anyway following 9 hours bring one to one'd in recovery I made it to the ward....where the care was non existent, truly awful and I ended up just saying to the dr (who was my friend anyway) that what is the point of me sitting on the ward in agony and having no help at all when I could be at home with h helping me iyswim. So been home since Sunday.
Bf going well, she likes to feed ALL night , we haven't been out really as the mw cane yesterday so was waiting for her. The weather is stormy today but if it settles then will go a walk I think.
She has her heel *** test tomorrow. My h is at work tomorrow for a meeting and should only be out 4/5 hours so I'm
Planning to wing it, my parents are taking Isaac to pre school and picking him up then going home so il just need to do the school run probably.
No more babies for me and I can honestly say I'm happy with that, after Isaac there was always a 'should we shouldn't we' but now I'm 100% done and we are both happy.
In other news my builders are still here and no doubt will be at Thea's first birthday party
