Thanks so much for all the lovely messages! I have passed over to the other side .... heavenly heavenly motherhood, am sooooooooooooooo on cloud 9!!!!
Our beautiful precious daughter, Maia Ella Rennie arrived on Wednesday morning at 9.49 am, weighing a healthy 4.6 kgs (10.5 lbs) with a mop of black hair, absolutely ravounous appetite and a healthy set of lungs.
She is amazing and we adore her, since we got her home 2 days ago she has been an angelic beauty, slightly less angelic during the night, but still gives us lots of rest with big 4 and 5 hour regular sleeps.
First 5 days were hell in understaffed crowded hospital on shared ward with a million babies! And had no milk for her for 5 days from the c-section i guess, and given she was so big and all it was distressing that she just couldn't get enough food, really howled 24/ 7 and lost more than 10% of her body weight. I really didn't want to give her formula and we have persisted the two of us on getting the b/f thing working, and have finally turned a corner, I am no longer practially strangling her to get her to latch on, and my poor chewed to pieces boobs are recovering. She is putting on weight and behaving like a real angel!!!!
Wow what a wonderful wonderful place to be, still can't beleive that she is finally here!!!!
Bec P, course I remember you. I am soooooooooooooo happy for you!!!! Really. I have actually snuffled around and checked a couple of your posts but lost track of what was happening this cycle for you. Was really hoping for you that things would happen for you this time. Thats great news. When did you get your BFP. Welcome to pregnancy!!
Take care all. Have posted pics of our lovely Maia on the photo bucket. Looking forward to catching up on all the posts and emails.
Mel, Lee and Maia
