hi everyone

maisie was weighed today and was 10 lb exactly... xxx

she is on infant gaviscon for reflux and its worked wonders...only thing is its making her a little constipated.. Crying or Very sad hate seeing her struggling ..was told to give her cooled boiled water with a bit of fresh orange juice in... shes guzzling it but it doesnt seem to help her much..

hope everyone else is well.... maisie wakes just once now in the night at around 5am...so getting a lot more sleep now and feeling more human

went to the docs today for my 6wk check and was told my tummy muscles are back together again with no gap so no excuse nw i need to exercise lol!! also got my supplies of the pill...not ready for another just yet! just waiting for AF to arrive! lol

Hello Bella - sorry for all of the questions but what else do they do on the 6 week check - is there an internal? Does your stomach look like it used to if the muscles are back together or is there work to do after that? I'm just wondering as my stomach is looking very podgy so I'm assuming my muscles are still separated.

hi littleted
there was no internal but then again i didnt tear during labour or have stitches...i only had one small stitch in threatre after the removal of the retained placenta so the doctor may have done an internal if i tore or maybe if i was in any pain still

she basically just asked me q's like, has the bleeding stopped? (it stopped after 3 wks), have i had a period? (not yet), what contraception i wanted, so i got the pill...she felt my tummy and said the muscles are back but my stomach doesnt look anything like what it used to Sad I used to go the gym 4 times a week and did lots of abs work...now it just looks flabby..got a lot of work to do!

she also took my blood pressure and that was really about it

hope ur doing well... i tried to start diet today ...so not liking it at all but need to take drastic action against the baby bulge! x

Hey all,

I had my 6wk check a couple of wks ago and they basically just take ur blood pressure, ask u some questions and thats about it. I tore and needed stitches but they never checked. Last time they were checked was when mw signed me over to hv but obv they'll be healed now.

Drew had her 8wk check n jabs yesterday Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad . They checked her hips, heart, eyes etc etc and then a jab in each leg. The poor thing broke her heart but it was for the best, she obv needed em doin. She was also weighed and had her head circumference measured. Shes now 11lb 3oz and spot on the 50th centile so thats brill Very Happy Doc said 'you have a perfect average baby' and laughed when i asked what that was cos DD was always WAY over the scale bein born at 9lb.

Drews happily sleeping through the night, she has her last bottle upstairs at 9pm and then will generally sleep through until 6am so i can cope with that. Hope Liam starts to give you a 'break' soon

xxx

I was porky before I got pregnant so I only put on 2 stone and then it seemed to drop off when the baby was born and with breast feeding - god knows what my boobs will end up like when the breastfeeding stops - spaniels ears comes to mind! I'm guessing if you were superfit before it'll be quicker to regain your shape - I wish I'd done a bit more exercise before and during pregnancy. I'd love it if Amelia went from 11pm - 5am - hopefully she will soon!

Do they say anything about pelvic floor at the 6 week check - I'm assuming that as i haven't wet or pooed myself then the pelvic floor is OK?

Hiya

Had Connor at the docs today for his first jags - the wee soul was so good but is a bit cranky and sleepy now.

Any advise on how to get him to take a later feed? He eats at 8pm and can sleep until 1am but need to get a later feed into him to cut out the 1am feed Confused

My diet starts next week ( or maybe the week after) Laughing
I lost 2 stone while pregnant but I had it to lose so now I have over a stone left to lose. Pregnancy was the best diet but now I have my appetite back and have found chocolate. Embarassed

my only advise is to gradually push back the 8pm bottle, eg leavin it till 8:15 then 8:30 etc etc until u get it to where u want it. Drew has her last bottle at 9pm and was then waking between 2:30 and 3 (instead of 1). Sounds really mean but after a lil while of her havin a bottle at that time, i found it was mucking up the routine for the rest of the day so gradually i made her wait (puttin dummy back in and she nodded back off, whereas i was usually gettin up) until she was wakin at 5. I was fine with that cos thats when her next bottle would have been due but i was finding by the time id got back upstairs from warming bottle, she'd gone back to sleep so i made her wait until 6 when she'd be awake properly...... so now she goes from 10ish through till 6

Hope that makes sense, its quite hard typing with 1 hand when u got a baby in the other LOL xxx

My advice is how I did with Henry and do with Annabel also at her last bottle at 10 pm is do a dream feed (from Tracey Hogg Baby whisperer) basically pop my hand under her neck gently while she is sleeping in moses basket slide the teat into her mouth and she will drinks it while still asleep - there is no need to wind as they are so relaxed they only take in minimal air you do this until they are about 7 months when you gradually stop the dream feed

Thank you for the advice girls. Connor had a feed at 10.30pm and slept until 4.30am - hurahhh!

He may have been sleepy from the jabs but still it shows he can do it Very Happy

More sleep is on it's way!!
