Baby News


I am sorry it has taken so long for me to get round to writing a little post.  As some of you are aware we had a beautiful baby boy on the 29th October weighing in at 91lb 15oz.  Another whopper of a son.

We went in at 7.30am for a 9.00am slot, which was delayed due to emergencies so we arrived in theatre at 5.00pm that evening.   I was one very dehydrated and hungry lady by that point.  I had a bit of struggle in theatre with my blodd pressure dropping very low (probably due to the fact my last meal was 7.00pm on the 28th)  My recovery was a little slow and the first night in hospital was spent with my head over a bowl - not very nice.

My new little man had to be kept underobservation for the Group B Step risk, and unfortunately on day two our return to home he developed a nasty eye infection and a bit of a cold.  However, antibiotic drops and lots of cuddles he is doing rather grand now!

His weight droped to 9lb 1oz in the first week, during this week I have had at the most an hours sleep per night as he has done nothing but feed, he has now regained his birth weight.  So hopefully thing will beome slightly easier in the coming days. 

As you can imagine I am a bit tired.  I do feel better now I am not doubled over and the wound is healing beautifully.  So starting to feel a bit human again.  I have managed to do a wee bit of crochet today but it is slow going. 

Son no. 1 has fallen totally in love with his baby brother, but his behavour towards Mummy has not been so good.  He ignored me for two days and the only word which left his mouth was NO!  Things are getting better now and I am paying him as much attention and cuddles as I can. 

I am looking forward to catching up with everyones blogs as soon as I can.

Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments and well wishes and special thanks to Fiona of Patchwork delights and Clara of Claras crochet Room for posting about my new arrival.

Much Love
