Guppy.. So glad you four are all home now I look at the chaos my one little baby has created and try to imagine it times 3 - you are my hero!! Post pics please when you get a chance
Sourire.. That's so scary - ut such a relief you got to see your little one wriggling around. It sure is a profound thing to realise its actually a person in there and congrats on getting in the birthing centre. They are so much nicer if ou have the choice.
Afm... Had a huge scare the first night we brought Beth home. She slept from 10pm and for some reason (despite being exhausted) I woke up at 2am feeling like something was wrong and found Beth purple and struggling silently to breathe. Her whole mouth and nose were covered in stomach mucus left over from the c section apparently. After stripping her and trying to get her to cry and not being able to clear it with my finger, I rang an ambulance and we were rushed back to the hospital... Scariest time of my whole life. They said its unlikely to happen again, as most of the mucus seems to be up now, but we bought a safe bed co-sleeper cot, and she now sleeps between me and DH so I can check on her in one second flat. It was recommended by the midwife for a few weeks, and has given me the chance to actually sleep a little at night now, not very well, but way easier than getting up with a c section belly a hundred times! So even though she is a wonder sleeper and only wakes up once a night to feed, I am a bit sleep deprived and can't really appreciate it..bah. But no more incidents like it since Monday so fingers crossed it was a one off. Would never wish that night on anyone - so so scary. But aside from that, she is a dream come true baby
