She is just gorgeous - Andrew has been home for 2 weeks, he is back at work on Wednesday, so we have had the best time getting to know her - the big kids are back at school, so things have worked our really well from a timing point of view - she has been a dream so far, although I think that having 2 adults to 1 baby is a bit of a luxury as far as ratios go, so no doubt the dynamics will change when DP is back at work later this week.
This afternoon was she was a bit grizzly, but has settled now - she is sleeping quite well, feeding roughly every three hours, but usually goes back to sleep ok at night. DP asked a few weeks before she was born if I wanted the bassinette in our room or in the nursery, and I was quite emphatic - that she would sleep in the nursery from the start, as I remember with DS (now 12), that the only way to get him to sleep was to feed him to sleep, and he was a shocking sleeper, ending up sleeping in our bed until he was about 18 months old - well - needless to say, from the first night home, Tilly has slept in our room, and she has also had a few nights in our bed as well . . . some people never learn, and no doubt I am making a rod for both of our backs, but we love her to bits and the nursery seems soooo far away (the room next to ours...).
How are you going with the wait until the nuchal fold test? The waiting never seems to stop, for one thing or another. Maybe it is the hormone high still speaking, but I/we are considering whether to have another baby after this one - again, the age thing comes into it, as I will be 38 at the end of the year - so we would need to make a decision sooner rather than later. We don't have any frozen embies so would have to do another stim cycle, which would be an issue re breast feeding etc - and also the obvious recovery time between pregnancies - so something to think about during the morning feeds....
