March 2019 Babies
This is a new thread for the lovely people from our Due in March 2019 who have given birth (or are about to give birth) to an equally lovely baby – and we reckon you deserve a shiny new thread to chat on.
If you've not been part of the Due in March 2019 Birth Club so far but have a baby born around March 2019, do please feel free to post and join in.

Here you go KG 101 - you can either screengrab your pic and try and post that or follow this little guide here.
Ladies, how are you all doing?
Still here waiting. I’ve got a scan tomorrow just to check the weight, I think it’s unnecessary at this point oh well. I get to see the baby just before birth.
sorry for the essay but if anyone could help and offer some advice of their own experiences then that will be greatly appreciated xx
time flies after birth, I restricted visitors when I had my son, my cousin came day after to bring me food, my mom wasn’t booked to come in until 3weeks after so we had a proper bonding time and by the time my mom came to help we already established a routine.
Also, if you feel you might have the baby blues creeping in, would you feel comfortable speaking to your health visitor? (I had the blues)
Danielle thanks so much for the reply!i wrote the post this morning and that’s when I feel my worst! I know It is overwhelming with visitors and I vowed I wouldn’t let them make me feel this way after my last pregnancy but it’s so hard to say no!! Plus I made the effort to drive far the other day to see my mum who is currently battling her own demons and when I got their she didn’t answer and was worried about her ect , plus so much doom and gloom in the media at the min I just feel like I’ve got to be responsible for everyone else and I feel like a black cloud over my head , I’m in the doctors at half 4 so hopefully that will help! Sorry I seem like a negative nelly just hoping no one else feels this way ❤️❤️
@KG 101 overwhelming is the key word - it really can be. Will you have a chat with your doc, just to keep an eye on things? I'm sending you a massive virtual fist pump followed by a hug!
@DanielleMFM just had the sweep...the midwife said it might be the start of something.
Well, this being a mum is hard work isn’t it!
KG I know how you feel. I’m recovering from a section and having sonething physical on top of the emotion and exhaustion can be hard going. Please look after yourself!
Isaac is almost two weeks old and I’ve no idea where the times gone; it has been a steep learning curve.
My husband goes back to work tomorrow which is terrifying.
Isaac also doesn’t sleep well at night- I think he’s got reflux as he’s sick every time we put him down. Even after lots of winding and half an hour of being more upright before being laid down. I’m going to mention to health visitor tomorrow but if anyone has any good ideas let me know - the lack of sleep is a killler.
hope everyone is getting on ok!
@Springstart1 lack of sleep is a killer..try some infacol to settle his tummy that should help. I’m sure he’ll sleep better once you’ve got his tummy settled.
@MrsBeeL how are you and Emily holding up?
how are you doing?!
Protect yourself and NEVER feel guilty about it! Your baby needs you happy and healthy!
