emily this is going to be the postnatal thread, there's a new antenatal one that there wasn't room to link to in the old thread. I don't know how to link on my phone but it's at the top of the antenatal threads at present.

YAY! calls Dash, we have company!

Welcome pidj and raphael.

Dash is being a little bugger today (don't get any ideas rafa). DH is at work till 11 so I've just managed to get 2 minutes to make tea (toast and marmalade and a cup of tea). This may be a long night...

PurplePidjin Wed 21-Nov-12 20:38:49

I have a feeling the first of the night clusters has begun <winces> he's been asleep all day!

At least dp is here to take over cuddling when he won't be be put down - think he's quite looking forward yo it, actually, loving the skin to skin smile

Hi seconds and weejo

Honeycantthinkofanxmasnickname Wed 05-Dec-12 18:05:56

This probably sounds weird after all the complaining done while pregnant, but does anyone else miss being pregnant? Maybe it's because mine ended early and so suddenly but I do feel like I missed some of he experience.

Right I'm finally here! Feeling sorry for myself today tbh just want to give up on the breastfeeding I'm so fed up of pumping and in exhausted for what seems like nothing. Probably just over tired after dd had us up most the night.

Honeycantthinkofanxmasnickname Wed 05-Dec-12 18:18:45

Oh spotty. Unmumsnetty hugs. It is totally exhausting and I found pumping relentlessly a lot more tiring than when it came to actually exclusively breastfeeding. Hopefully you'll find it easier once felix is home so you can get into a routine with him. That being said, you do need to be rested and relaxed so if you decide bf is taking away from you enjoying your kids then stopping it isn't the end of the world- it wouldn't make you a bad mother! You know what's best for you,DD and felix. Hope that makes sense and doesn't come across as patronising!

ISpyDingDongMerrilyOnHigh Wed 05-Dec-12 18:29:03

Just checking in now I've found this thread.

Spotty - fwiw, I think it sounds like you're doing an absolutely amazing job but it must be utterly exhasting too. Every single day will have benefited Felix enourmously already and if you feel it's time to stop you shouldn't feel bad at all. Sending hugs and hope things get easier soon whatever you decide to do.

ISpyDingDongMerrilyOnHigh Wed 05-Dec-12 18:34:24

Honey - know what you mean about missing being pregnant. Think with me it might be because in all likelhood I won't be again - our little family is probably complete now. Of course nothing beats newborn cuddles and I quite like having a belly button that goes in again and even something resembling a waist, but I do really miss feeling him move and watching my bump grow bigger. He was lying on my front before and moving in exactly the same way he did before he was born, and it hit me a bit then. Think it is probably just hormones though and will pass.

Honeycantthinkofanxmasnickname Wed 05-Dec-12 18:46:09

Thanks ispy Like I say, I think with me it's mainly because everything happened so early and so quickly. I missed out on the last 6 weeks of pregnancy and I wasn't ready to have him yet. Then there was so much stress and nothing happened how we'd planned, and the birth was so quick I didn't really know what was happening. Then with him being whisked away and in scbu. It all feels like we've missed out on stuff.
