Its been 9 days since his entrance into the world so I thought it was about time I introduced Seth to Mumdrum.
Firstly, I want to thank pip for my lovely ba and for being a fab pp :)
Secondly, thank you to you lovely ladies for your congratulations messages on my ba thread, it was so lovely to read while I was recovering.
Finally, I need to apologise to Noggin for queue jumping...bad etiquette on my part!
I will write a proper birth story as I think it will help me to wrote down everything that happened. The short version is frat my waters broke on the weds but no contractions so went in Fri to be induced. Got to 10cm on gas and air alone, which took about 10 hours after being hooked up to the drip. After pushing for ages, I ran out if puff and we tried ventouse which didn't work so eventually got him out by forceps.
My recovery included needing a blood transfusion and I'm still very anemic. Seth then got jaundice so had to have phototherapy for a day and then we discovered he had tongue tie. We had that snipped privately and he no longer looks like a Simpson ;)
Breastfeeding is getting better every day and he's put on 6oz in the last 4 days after losing 8% of his birth weight initially.
So there have been a few hiccups but the bottom line is that he's totally awesome and we are completely smitten.
Thanks for reading this if you made it this far, md has been a great source of information and support over the last 8 months :)
I will try and upload a couple of pictures as a reward ;)
