@winter2020 He's currently asleep on me after trying to put him in his basket twice. 🤦♀️Yes we have to go in person but book online, the closest date was the second week in March due to covid! Annoyingly it says not to bring your baby, however if you're not married both parents need to be there... If both of us are there we don't have anyone to look after Dylan. The logic!
There's a huge wait for his jabs, 4 weeks to be precise, not best pleased but what can I do?! Same to register his birth, the earliest I could book was March 11th and that was weeks and weeks ago.
@MissM2203 I was actually looking forward to have sex again until I started the pill and now I just can't think of anything worse. I feel disgusting and too tired for anything other than feeding and the basics of life right now. It's really messed with my brain, if nothing changes in two weeks I'm coming off it and going back to the gp.
This weekend I'm going to try start a routine with Dylan in his cot In our bedroom. I can't stand these split shifts anymore and Dylan needs to get used to his cot. It's gonna be tiring and take a while but it has 5o be done. If OH doesn't like it, he can sleep on the bloody sofa.

@MissM2203 hope you catch up on some sleep and feel a bit brighter today xx
I'm going to revisit the next to me cot again soon, it's crazy isn't it having to sleep in shifts. At least hes not screaming all night like before 😩
It is crazy, we haven't shared a bed in over ten weeks but I feel a lot less stressed than I did with my daughter where I was jumping up the very second she murmured so she didn't wake dad, now if Rory has a little fuss, I just wait it out a bit. He slept from 9pm to 4am tonight. Just feeding him now and will see if he goes back down (fingers crossed) xx
I really miss falling asleep with OH 😔
I technically don't need more sleep but hoping I can put Rory down again after this feed 😴😴
Thr best sleeper award is most definitely going to Rory, what a star he is!
I would definitely go back to the GP if those feelings don't settle.
The pill has done weird things to me hence me not even contemplating it and I fell pregnant on cerazette 🤣
How are you getting on with going dairy free?
Layth now weighs a whopping 15lb 3oz Not long and he will be double his birth weight!!!
@Emmy012 totally agree on going back to the GP if things don’t settle down soon. I don’t want to go back on anything hormonal but not sure of other options.
My pelvic floor seems to be OK, I was told years ago mine was weaker due to having IC but I've had no issues such as leaking or any visible signs anything has changed after birth. I have done pelvic floor exercises for years though to strengthen everything as I was told I'd need to as my bladder is slightly prolapsed with IC. Yay. I tend to have the opposite where I can't empty my bladder fully, so constant infections if it gets bad but pregnancy was incredibly kind to my illness.
I have seen the Elvies, let me know what you think of them please?
@MissM2203, Layth is growing so well Rory weighed 9lb 15oz at his 8 week check. I am looking forward to him getting weighed at 12 weeks (two weeks time) to see how he has grown then he looks like a chubster but that is mainly because he is a shorty 💕
We have been doing an online baby class today while big sis napped then some tummy time. He has been a sleepy boy today and I don't feel like I do enough with him, I don't always feel like I know what I should be doing to stimulate him xx
My pelvic floor is knackered. It's so bad this time around that even trying to do the exercises is difficult.
I literally can't even walk fast without a dribble it's so awful.
3 babies have definitely taken their toll 😳
Glad your feeling better today hope it all settles down for you. Bloody hormones!
Aww he's really cute, does he like tummy time? Layth hates it and I don't know why?
Dylan has play time with daddy every morning, he seems to enjoy it around 11am he lays on his play mat grabbing and kicking, we also got him some priya and peanut sensory cards with black and white images on, he seems really into them and follows them with his eyes even smiling at some.
I tend to miss out on his play time with the time I wake up but I know it's not forever and I try and interact with him as soon as I'm awake.
My role at the moment seems to be feeder, bath giver and sleep inducer 😂
@LouTTC83 Dylan weighed nearly 12lbs at his check at nearly 7 weeks old... He's a monster 😂 he's probably surpassed 13lbs now easily.
@MissM2203 wow Layth is such a good a weight!! That's brilliant. I wouldn't worry too much about the length of the feeds, he seems to be getting everything he needs!! Well done mama! We've only really just gotten into a routine but it's hard work getting into it.
@LouTTC83 aww Rory is sleeping so well and he's gorgeous 😍
@RememberToBreathe I definitely need to focus on my pelvic floor alot more. Finding it really hard to control flow at the moment so definitely need to focus on it alot more. Hope you're nap was lovely with Ralph!
Had my appointment with the doctor today and have really bad carpal tunnel, had blood drawn to rule out arthritis as it runs in my family and everyone got it young. Have to have my wrist supported with a bandage or splint at all times, have an anti inflammatory gel and physio therapy with a specialist as well 😭 here's my gorgeous boy, two months old yesterday 🥰
