Sorry, it's probably way TMI but I had to share as I'm so chuffed.
MW asked me to start expressing to harvest colostrum. I never produced a drop with M so imagine my total surprise when pumping tonight produce something I could actually collect in a syringe.
Mr R is also happy as it means he can use his label machine to name them to take into hospital!!!

Well done! That'll give you a real head start

That's fab...and bless Mr Rusty, a man and his gadgets eh?!

That's fab Rusty! And I had a wee giggle at Mr R and his label maker! xx

I may have missed this, and feel free to tell me to mind my own business, but why do you need to do this early? The thought of trying to squeeze stuff out of my boobs right now gives me the heeby jeebies!

Well done. I'm jealous as I've been trying for weeks with no success at all. Just hoping it doesn't mean my boobs are going to be crap for bf'ing.

PC- because Rusty has gestational diabetes as did I, it's really important that baby gets a feed quickly after birth to stabilise blood sugars so if you have a couple of ml ready it means that is available even if you struggle o produce milk at delivery. I guess it also gets things started for a better chance of managing to bf too

That's brilliant, well done.
I got a label machine for Xmas and I love it. I have labelled all the adaptors lying around the house so we know what they are all for.
