Welcome to our new home! Right, time to get that baybee out lazy!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 03-Mar-13 15:09:38

Just keep hanging on to the fact that your scan showed a baybee with a pounding heart jeff....it gets a lot easier when the baybee starts kicking the crap out of you on a regular basis smile
The exhaustion is crap. I became a little too reliant on coke on my shifts! Probably not recommended though!

JethroTull Sun 03-Mar-13 17:06:55

It's got worse this past week. I am ticking the days off until my 12 week scan now. grin

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 03-Mar-13 17:12:00

I'm ticking off the days til my mat leave! 15 shifts/19 days smile

JethroTull Sun 03-Mar-13 19:48:32

That is getting seriously close Faith! Any plans for mat leave?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sun 03-Mar-13 19:54:23

Tantalisingly close! Mostly batch cooking. I think we need to eat up the freezer contents in the next couple of weeks to make room for pre-cooked dinners. I have also been rather ambitious and bought a huge cross stitch which I will try to get to grips with. I have done a few but probsbly a quarter of the size!

FriendofDorothy Mon 04-Mar-13 21:12:00

Uh oh. We have rapidly disappearing cookies in the house!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Mon 04-Mar-13 21:29:17

Mmm biscuit envy
I've just had post-work cheese on toast! Tired but survived. Still protein and leukocytes in my urine dip despite only having a couple of antibiotics to take confused

FriendofDorothy Wed 06-Mar-13 21:53:23

Argh. I worried my way through pregnancy and now I am all worried about cot death sad

HavingALittleFaithBaby Wed 06-Mar-13 22:04:40

Anything specific dor?

I am worried because I'm having Braxton hicks ?? despite relaxing in bed....it never stops, does it? (The worry that is).

FriendofDorothy Wed 06-Mar-13 22:11:39

Something on OBEM set me off.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Wed 06-Mar-13 22:34:12

It's perfectly normal to be anxious but you know it's actually very rare and that you're doing everything right to minimise the risks for the Little Mister - not drinking, smoking before bed, lying him on his back, you didn't smoke during pregnancy. Do you have a monitor on him?

FriendofDorothy Wed 06-Mar-13 22:51:45

No monitor but he sleeps in the same room as us and snores like a warthog!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 07-Mar-13 09:06:26

And had he woken all smiley again this morning?

My BH stopped when I settled for bed (phew). Might have been because I cleaned the kitchen before I got into bed...bit crazy I guess but so nice to get up to this morning!

Only 12 shifts to go! smile

FriendofDorothy Thu 07-Mar-13 09:08:30

Yeah of course has. I feel super drama-queenish at the moment about silly things I think!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 07-Mar-13 09:12:41

It'll be the hormones. He is your PFB. You're allowed to be worried about him smile

Last night L was sleeping better than he has for a week and breathing very quietly. So I poked him. Obviously.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 07-Mar-13 18:35:31

How did he react blonde?! Did he react?

jeff - re your comment on the BESH thread re discharge - I have had bucket loads since early on. Quite disturbing. Get through two pant liners a day minimum. Often yellowy, sometimes even a bit green hmm
MW and CRESH said unless its itchy or smelly it's normal!

I have bought Pickle a teeny tiny coat today smile and a couple of 'newborn' baybee grows in the hope that s/he might be under 9lb!

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 07-Mar-13 18:39:36

Oh and I bought myself some post-birth trousers....a size up from normal but with elasticated waist! I recall my sister having a lot of swelling (she had an EMCS to be fair) but I thought it would be nice to have some non-pregnancy clothes!

Oh he just snorted. He does go so pale when asleep though. Translucent skin and blue eyelids. Scary child.

Faith I have a feeling that given your fixation with pant snot and all its variations wink, you are gonna love the poo aspect of motherhood. Ah the joys of discussing colour, texture, frequency...

JethroTull Thu 07-Mar-13 20:05:48

Pant snot. Mine is all progesterone related. I'm shoving these bullets up me twice a day, I'm sure most of it leaks out!!

I'm very emotional right now. SSG is away & I've found it really hard without him. That's not like me at all. Coping with my crazy dog on my own has been hard.

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 07-Mar-13 20:18:13

I am looking forward to having my own snuffly baybee ignoring the prospect of no sleep I'm glad L was contented though smile

jeff how long does that continue? The bulleting?

blonde don't forget my profession. I am far too familiar with poo as it is. The only difference will be the bottom size (and hopefully the poo size but I am not naïve to the amount that little baybees can produce). Yes poo watch will be interesting!

Ah yes of course. It is such a delight. I sometimes text TBI to give him updates. Well, I say sometimes. Most days. Currently we are doing a special on pea-green playdoh. Thank you hypoallergenic formula.

bluer Thu 07-Mar-13 21:27:11

Oh I missed a poo discussion! Mr df was shocked when we looked at the baby book I got him as there are pics of dirty nappies to show you things to look for confused

I never looked at any pictures. They keep telling you it should look like scrambled egg and you think, wtf?! But then it comes and you look and you're like, oh I see...

But the meconium which was described as 'tarry' seemed more to me like a giant sea slug emerging from my perfect newborn.

See, this is why I have forgotten how to have normal conversations.

FriendofDorothy Thu 07-Mar-13 22:17:04

blonde - glad you also have a translucent baby. I sometimes have to get really close to check The Little Mister is still breathing!

My baby's poo looks like chicken korma still. Gross.
