Hi ladies! I've finally managed to get a few minutes to myself to log on here, I've been dying to update you! Noah arrived on 4th November, he weighed 7lb 8oz. He's gorgeous!
It was quite a traumatic birth - my waters broke on 2nd Nov but my contractions kept stopping so I was induced by drip on 4th Nov. Noah's heartbeat kept dropping and a blood test showed he was in distress so they attempted to deliver with kiwi cup but failed, so we were taken for an emergency c-sec. I had an arterial bleed so that had to be fixed before they could try to get Noah out. When they finally got to him he'd been pushed down so far into the birth canal during the attempted instrumental delivery that they couldn't get him out through the incision, I had one surgeon pushing him back up and another pulling him out, they swapped positions but still couldn't get him. In the end another surgeon was paged, he made an extra incision and got Noah out. Thank god! It wasn't over though as Noah had to spend a few days on SCBU but we have been home a couple of weeks and settling in well.
I've only just started to figure out Noah's routine so I'm really behind and have so much to catch up on here! Noah is suffering quite badly with reflux which makes feeding fun, I have to feed him holding him upright and then hold him upright for half hour after. It's soooo tiring!
But I wouldn't change him for the world and I'd go through it all again for him! xxx
I'm going to get Noah weighed again at 5 weeks-ish as I'm paranoid hehe! Then he'll get weighed again at his 8 week check. I hope all is well with your test and 6 week check this week, what do they do at the 6 week check? I am bf, are you? It's hard work but I love it xx
