Oh Tigger, sorry they're giving you a hard time.

She looks well, not like she's skinny or anything.

Did you have any IV fluids in labour or anything like that? Sometimes birth weight can be high due to the baby retaining fluid.

Hope they get off your case and she starts gaining more x

No there's no reason like that Phoenix - she was a home birth so no interventions. Apparently I just make massive babies?! My son was a big baby but he always gained really well. She's just a bit lazier than him!!

We booked a private villa so other than asking for a cot we didn't have any worries there but with the flights I booked her in as our surname then once I'd got her passport I rung Monarch and requested the name change which they did for free over the phone (if you change a name online it's 100)!

You have to register the birth ASAP as you need birth certificate for passport. As we've come to Turkey she also needed a visa so had to wait for passport to come back. We paid to have it returned in 1 week and it came back in 6 days.

Feel free to pm if I can help x

Ahaha - love that photo overthemoon!
Babymaker, we're doing ok, thanks for asking, rowan's jaundice has calmed down a lot now she's feeding properly and she's more alert and certainly gaining the weight back she lost! Will find out tomorrow as she'll be weighed again. I'm gradually getting more mobile again too. Not 100% sure I'm getting the latch totally right still as my nipples are killing me - spend most of the feed gripping pillows and trying not to yell haha
How's things with you?

We went for tea and cake at a local coffee shop today. Got lots of 'oohs' from everyone at taking our newest addition. Wouldn't have dreamed of leaving the house at this stage last time!

My baby blues has hit though and I keep getting all tearful. It's also making me feel sad thinking back to when my first was born and how different that was. I thought I had gotten over it all, but apparently not Just hope this passes soon.

Ahhhh Hun sorry you're feeling a bit blue - has your milk come in yet as that can really affect your hormones.
It's easy to say but take care of yourself - this time round I've gotten lots of help and get people to hold her or settle her between feeds so I can have a hot drink. It really boosts me and that way I don't feel she's on me all the time x

Thanks MrsT. My milk has come in so I guess that's what has triggered it. It frustrates me that I should be able to celebrate how much better the whole experience has been this time but instead I'm dwelling on what I did wrong last time.

So proud of my littlest girl. She did a 3.5 and then a 2.5 hour sleep last night, both in her crib. Combined with me grabbing an afternoon nap when they were both asleep, I am starting to feel properly rested. Fingers crossed for repeat performance!

I totally overdid things yesterday though. I walked to my MW appointment and then to the shops later and when Kara woke overnight my SPD pains were all back and I could barely get out of bed. Guess I need to take things a bit easier still.

I'm feeling rubbish crying all the time, don't want to be on my own with summer as I feel I can't look after her properly I'm always screw something is wrong. I feel shit about feeding and generally just rubbish. To top it off my boiler has broken and not getting fixed till tomorrow, I'd love a bath right now. Not sure how I will manage when hubby goes back to work next week. He has gone in today to do some administration and iv had my sister here but she is not confident looking after a newborn.
