Thanks girls. Just stressing for when OH gods back to work that I won't cope if he still isn't latching.

Topped up his last feed with formula and he seems much happier with a fuller belly, so I'm just going to think of it as his medicine like they call it in hospital til my milk comes back better. I've gone and bought carrot juice, salmon, oatmeal, garlic & lots of water as online says they are good for milk flow... Just hope it all works!

He is worth it though. All the stress, lack of sleep, days without showers and missed breakfasts. :')

I'm so excited for you girls that are left to pop! Any new signs tonight?

I started with sickness that made me 'empty' upstairs and downstairs lol followed by being really unsettled and dreaming about my waters popping which was when I woke up to them popping! xxxxxxxx

Abi I've managed to increase my supply massively by pumping every 2-4 hours, especially at night time. It's hard work but once supply is established for a while, apparently I'll be able to cut it down a lot and still get the same amount of milk. I also drink loads, like 3 litres of water per day or more and make sure I eat a lot (not difficult as appetite has increased lots from all the expressing). xxx

Nothing new so far with me, but it can't be too much longer. Having loads of BH but nothing regular so far. I did have the urge to do one last good house cleaning before T.J.comes because once he comes it may be a while before it gets cleaned like this again. LOL! verything's all ready for him now.

I've had absolutely nothing today...really trying to put it to the back of my mind and relax which I actually kind of managed though. I have a 2nd sweep tomorrow (had one last week)...hoping I'll get there and they'll say I'm 5cm and need to get going to hospital (hey, I can dream right?! )

I'm feeling much more chilled too.. I got all wound up and frustrated over Christmas but now that I'm back busy into my normal routine I'm finding the wait much more manageable! Actually just really making an effort to cherish these last few weeks just us and Poppy before our family changes forever xx

I have been feeling guilty having to ignore one of the boys whilst the other is feeding, tandem is usually difficult as one falls off! DH gets stressed when left with the yelling one! He goes back to work tomorrow, yikes!

Ours are so good when people visit and then are really demanding in the evening too! They kept us up last night wanting extra milk too.

I felt bad having to top up with formula but it does take the pressure off and people say you can go back to breast milk only later on.

My leg hair stopped growing at about 7 months of my pregnancy, it was great as I couldn't reach to do them! But the day after the twins were born it came back really quickly, strange and yuck!! Is it just me?

Yes but Robert often lets go and it's hard to keep them both on unless they are both really hungry! Are you formula feeding?

Haha leg hair stopping growing is a funny one! I didn't get that!

Health visitor came for first visit today. The girls are up to 7 pounds 3 oz each at 13 days old (6 pounds 6oz and 7oz at birth) so I'm glad about that because I wanted to check that weaning them off formula and onto my milk wasn't starving them.

My mum made some comment today about why I'm expressing my milk and bottle feeding instead of putting them straight on me. I just found tandem feeding so hard, and like you say blue, I felt bad making one wait while feeding the other. Also I worried that second feeder wasn't getting much. So anyway it's still top ups and mainly expressing for everyone's sanity and to cut down on a bit of feeding time.

We survived the first day with OH back at work. Both girls are asleep and all three of us are well fed (my mum kindly came over and fed me a couple of times)! I even snuck off for a shower while they napped and we had skin to skin cuddles in bed for an hour. It was very peaceful until Heidi got hungry

Glad OH is home though! Phew. xxx

Well, I'm back to being fed up ha. Had contractions for a few hours last night, managed to fall asleep at 2am and then woke up for it to all have fizzled out. Midwife was fairly positive about sweep today but no more contractions yet....already feel like he's never coming out and I'm only 4 days over

I can't imagine how you must feel!
I'm losing it at 37+5 with pains I keep getting stop/start lol I go in tomorrow though as original plan was induction this week. I have a feeling she has moved her head though ..when I get pressure now with the pains I don't feel her head between my legs today..it's more to the left by that hip bone they won't do anything if she isn't engaged. So will have to see what happens. Her movements have been okay but still vary and hard to track. I can't wait for her to be here safe..my anxiety has been through the roof this week! Spend most of the day crying etc wishing she was here safe. I wish I could be excited for whenever her arrival is but instead I'm just impatient as with each day I feel itl be harder if things do go wrong. Xxx
