Hey ladies. They rechecked the baby yesterday and it was still breech so we proceeded with the C-Section as they didn't want me to go over my due date with a breech baby. We had a little girl weighing 8lbs. We named her Kate Londyn. She has a good set of lungs and used them most of last night. Needless to say we are very tired today.

Congrats cj on your little girl kate. 8lbs, good size. Curious if they'll have her hips ultrasound due to the breech position. Apparently with breech babies the hip sockets may not form correctly... Wyatt has an apt to have his checked.

Hope all is well and your all able to get some sleep.

Jumping over from the March board. Wanted to know if anyone experienced this - I had my atanomy scan and it was confirmed a boy. But they found a small bleed 3cm by 1cm saying that the report states it can be a marginal placenta abdurption.
I'm 19w4d anyone know anything about this?
Dr said not to worry I will be monitored but if it gets bigger I can miscarry

Well I didn't need to be induced after all!

Little miss Kel.ly De.mi was born 8 days overdue after 15 hours of med-free labor that required forceps in the end as she was having heart decels. She was 6lbs14oz and 20.5 inches long. So we were off to a bit of a shaky start as I had some hemorrhaging too but she's making up for her dramatic entrance by being a breastfeeding champ and being pretty chill so far.

We just look at her and can't believe after this long journey, we finally have her in our arms.

Congrats Lily! Nice that you didn't have to be induced! How are you feeling?

Preciousmoments we aren't sure if they'll X-ray her hips or not. Her doctor in the hospital checked her hips both days and said she thought they were fine. When I got back home the midwife I was seeing said she it's standard that they X-ray all babies hips after they've been breech, especially in girls. I'm guessing she will end up getting it done.

Congrats cj!!! Love the spelling of londyn!!!

Lily congrats glad u didn't need to be induced

Sorry I have been out of the loop a bit.... our baby has finally arrived although I too can barely believe it! When she came out the nurse asked " what is it?" The doc said " it's a boy!!!! ..... no wait a girl!!!" I was a little confused but apparently he wasn't paying attention because he was focused on collecting cord blood! It was pretty funny... but our beautiful baby GIRL is here!!!

She is AMAZING!!!! I have been loving every sleep deprived second!

Hope everyone else is well

How is everyone doing?? I can't believe it's almost the middle of November already....Sophie is 2 months old in a week...crazy...
I hope everyone and their babes are doing awesome! We are doing well here, albeit sleep deprived still. It's short lived though I know so coffee makes me happy enough for now ;)
Anywho - just thought I'd check in to see how motherhood is treating everyone!!

Cheers!

Congrats orange on the safe arrival of your little girl!

Miss K is 4 weeks old already today. Over the weekend, she started to give us 3-4 hour stretches of sleep during the night so we're feeling a little more fresh because of it. She's still been a pretty easy going little girl so far. Already starting to outgrow her newborn clothes. I'm finally feeling better in the post delivery recovery department. The pain is gone and I can move about without an discomfort.

My little girl was a month old on Thursday! She is not the most easy going baby. The first few weeks were hard with her crying pretty much every time she was awake. That's getting a bit better now. She also wants to be held all the time. We had a lot of visitors for the first 3 weeks and she basically got passed around from person to person. Now she doesn't want to sleep in her crib or playpen, even at night! Needless to say, we haven't had much sleep either!

My little one was 2 months old last week. She weighed 10 lbs 8 oz at her last check up. She's been sleeping 4-5 hour stretches during the night but she's a nap fighter during the day. Definitely a morning baby as she's full of smiles and giggles. If she's had a crappy nap day, watch out she's all sorts of cranky in the evening. We're gearing up for Christmas and I'm anxious to get it over with as it is incredibly overwhelming to juggle everything with a little baby.

I'm trying to take in and savor her being so little as I'm likely one and done, but can't help but want to get to where she's more interactive.

Hello and happy new year to all you lovely mama's! Hope you all have been doing well. I got a new phone so lost this link and frankly not much time in my day.

As of wyatt's 2mo checkup, he weighed 13lbs,24 inches long. Next apt is first of Feb......wonder what those numbers will be.

Couple of questions

Anyone started teething?

Milk supply? I feel mid day I start to run low and can't satisfy him.

How are your outings?
I'm having a hard time with outings. Wyatt hates his car seat,stroller and carrier! With the stroller,more often than not,I end up having to take him out and carry him while pushing the stroller and when walking the dog at the same time..... must be a sight to see! When we are out,I look around at all the other parents and their little ones seem so content in their stroller or carrier. Any advice? Oh,and forget the pacifier,only makes him more angry.

Otherwise,we are doing pretty good. It's all worth the lack of sleep and trying days. Hubby is awesome,has taken on dinner when he gets home from work since it's wyatt's hardest time of the day.

Guess who just woke from their first,only real nap. Signing off
