thank you

I ended up not having a lotus birth, her cord was really short, I delivered the placenta into a bowl and it was right next to us but even then if we moved at all the cord tugged on her, so after the MW came I got a cord tie my friend made me and tied and the midwife cut it. It was just too short Never mind.

Only scary bit was when her head was crowning I had a brief moment where it felt HUGE and I momentarily panicked I wouldn't be able to birth her, but then I snapped out of it and pushed lol.

I had wanted to do it on my own so I'm glad I did.

Congratulations Phoenix sounds like a fab birth! I'd have freaked out doing it on my own but would have loved it at the same time.

Belle's still struggling with her pops :-: she's now going 2-4 times a day for the first time ever, but they're so hard I don't know how she gets it out?! (Sorry if tmi!) she's on the full dose of lactulose that the doctor prescribed. Going to call the health visitor in a bit and see what she suggests. Xxx

Summer really struggles she goes alot but it's like water yet she screams the house down and goes purple when doing them. I was told it's normal but it's horrible to watch. X

I've been desperate to start exercising again. Been for a couple of gentle walks with toddler and felt OK afterwards so today I did my first post-baby exercise DVD (an easy low impact walking based one) and feel fantastic. Really hope I won't regret it later and can fit them into my days regularly (on top of actual walks). Want to start doing post-natal yoga too but suppose I should really wait for my 6 week check up (although last time that consisted of being asked if I felt OK!).

That's how Belle was when the health visitor told me to put her on to comfort milk for colic and constipation - it made it a while lot worse! She'd gone from having solid-ish poos every 2-4 days, but going with no problems, to going every day but really struggling even tho it was the 'right' consistency. She also smelt sooooo bad and had constant wind. I was paranoid people would think it was me, it was far too bad for a newborn haha. Anyway, she ended up on a prescribed milk with no dairy which cleared up her skin and made her poos normal for the first time. But her reflux was back, so we had to put her on gaviscon, which constipated her so she's now on lactose, which is where we're at now.....I tried speaking to the hv this morning, waited for a call back and had nothing :-/ it's so frustrating trying to get it right and horrible seeing my poor baby struggling :-/ xxx

Hopefully it will get sorted as you say it's horrible to see them in so much pain. Im nearly in tears everytime as she crys the house down. Iv just brought that milk but she has not had any yet. I'm hoping it will help and not make her worse like your LO x

Happy birthday Blueclass, hope you have a lovely day with the pictures!

Robyn isn't much of a pooper - once a day at most, maybe every other day. But we went to baby massage on Tuesday, and did some at home Thursday and Friday. That REALLY freed her up!!! She's not stopped on the days she's had massage so we might incorporate it into bed time routine now. Though she screams for sleep by 8pm, not sure I'll manage to fit it in.

We're off car shopping tomorrow, need a small hatchback because we're not coping with just 1 car anymore. Going to leave Robyn with my mum for a few hours and possibly the toddler too. She's taking a bottle lovely, I'm fairly sure approx 20oz of milk I have will be enough (it'll be at most 4-5 hours!!) but still scared it won't be!

Happy birthday blueclass! Have a good un and enjoy the photos - do share!
Man, I really should start some massage with Rowan, think she'd benefit. She gets quite distressed in the evening and then does about 3 poops in a row and passes out lol - trouble is she seems to cry at being naked and still isn't sure about baths or anything!

Ladies I'm sooooo excited.... Can't put on fb but I can share on here... After 8 years of renting the same house we have finally (after much persuasion on the husband) put an offer on a house!!!! I don't know if offer will be accepted but this is just a huge step for us!
