Hi Kelly, and Smita!!
Not long to go for you now Smita, I remember the last few weeks, they were torture for me as I was soo huge, hope you are coping ok. Rest as much as you can!
Kelly, sorry I didnt think re the weight thing! A 'stone' is 14lb! I lost a couple of pounds last week so am hoping it starting to shift. I lost over 2 stone at the birth, but I was carrying over 13lb of baby
and another stone and a half came off once I got back home after the first few weeks. I must admit I wasnt good over Xmas so now I am doing my best! If I dont shift it I will have a wardrobe full of clothes I cant wear so am pretty focused at the mo. I agree with you Kelly, in the first few months you are so tired that anything will do to eat, and its very easy to go for the quick sugary fix! I am hoping my size 10s will be back on in the summer, with the amount of times I run upstairs they should be!!
Kelly, Alex is the same as Hannah re the bouncer, he starts smiling as soon as you pick him up tp put him in it! Evie has been in, but she just stands there, where as he goes mental
, I think the spring will need oil! She doesnt dislike it but is happy just laying on a playmat with her toys. I do think the bouncer is wearing him out though as last night he slept from 7.15pm until 5.45am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Evie was still asleep although she didnt go down until 7.45pm. I am soo impressed, bless them. They normal wake between 3.30 and 4.30, but the previous night it was 4.50 so heres hoping!
I giggled when you said about Hannah and your ceiling fan!! Evie loves smiling at overhead lights! She also took to smiling at doors at one stage too?! I have taken them to post natal once where they saw other babies but they seem far more interested in each other. Alex was talking to Evie the other day, but she ignored him! Evie has taken to shouting! She is really really loud, so much so that she makes Alex jump. Its ok if he is expecting it, but he has burst in to tears a few times as she frightens him!
I miss being pregnant too, the early bit anyway!! It is so lovely and I felt so proud of my bump, enjoy Smita. Do you think you would ever try again Kelly? We have 6 frozen blastocysts which we are undecided about. I am reluctant not to use them though as there could be another Alex or Evie in there. The minus is my age, but I know they wont age and will always be 39yr olds embies but I am going to be 41 in May. Oh well we dont have to decide yet. I count my blessings every day for the two beautiful children that I have.
Better go Alex is winging!!
Lots of love
