Hi girls! Lovely to see everyone is getting on well... And that I'm not the only one grabbing just a few hours at night! My oh is still off work for another 2 weeks thank god, but I too am absolutely dreading him going back to work. My big boy has broken up from school now so I'm thinking ahead for what we can do for entertainment during the holidays! Any ideas very welcome!
I'm still managing to keep up with the breastfeeding but my god it is hard. I don't seem to be able to express very successfully so going anywhere too far from home is a big no no at the mo which is frustrating as I want to get out and about! Has anyone else got the tommee tippee electric expresser? Any hints or tips for how to get more out?!? Xxxx

Tommee tippee expressor is pants lol, sorry if you've spent a lot on it. The tt bottles are the best but honestly I'd invest in a medela swing if you are serious about expressing. Its just a mini version of the one they use in hospitals & is really excellent. When I came him from hospital ( I had also bought the tt electric one before birth ) after one session on the tt I went straight out & bought the medela. Its pricey but worth it x

Ohhh no really?!? How annoying... Especially as I've just looked and the Mandela is currently cheaper than this one! I've just read up a bit more and someone recommends taking off the boob bit and stick my nipple right into the nozzle.. So will give that a go before I spend another fortune! I also tried hand expressing and literally got nothing. This poor baby must have to work so hard to get my milk out! Xxx

And Dani... Nappy arse! Haha love it! I'm the same though, hate pads, feel like they make me sweaty and itchy - nice! Xxx

So hard to explain, dw i wont go uploading piks lmao!! Its not an open wound anymore but doesnt look like it did before or tr other side lmao!

Can't believe I've only just noticed this?!

Can't believe Oskar is 2 weeks tomorrow !! Him and I are both such sweaty Betty's at the moment LOL.
We got discharged today and the little chunk weighs 8lbs 14oz!! I'm suffering with raw skin around my stitches and a UTI..nice. Never am I letting anyone near that area again!


Hope everyone is good

The UTI hurts more than my stitches! Gotta go get some anti biotics tomorrow and hopefully it'll clear up!

I thought the pain would end once he was out... how wrong was I!!

No thats true! I breezed through pregnancy completely unscathed. Now I have carpal tunnel syndrome (intense wrist pain) and a stitched perineum that I just wish would be back to normal!

You'll be here before you know it! I was in such a hurry for my LO to arrive and now I miss him being all mine tucked away in my tummy. Enjoy you're last days (or maybe hours) of them being just yours (and not crying ) xx
