Our little girl, Ariella Sloane, was born last week Friday (7th) via unplanned C-section. Went into labour early morning, and progressed well, but after my epi kicked in, contractions slowed down and baba went into distress. She was 3.39kgs, 49cm and very healthy! Dropped to 3.19 at discharge and was 3.24kgs at 6 days, so super happy with how she is progressing. She's feeding brilliantly and is generally a happy and easy baby
How are all of you doing? I’m 37 weeks today and officially on Maternity Leave! Woohoo!
I’m going for my next checkup on Monday.
Will probably be induced by 39 weeks, as this little bear is a big one.
Went for our 34 week scan today. Our little girl is happy and healthy, 2.4kgs at the moment. Very active, and has found her sweet kick spot on the corner of my ribs OUCH!
Organised our maternity shoot for this weekend.
I can't finish up or get everything organised until after next weekend, as that is our baby shower. Late-ish but mother-in-law was overseas so we rather waited for her to come back.
We have decided on a name but won't be sharing it until she is here
I'm 31w tomorrow. Been to the gynae last week and 4D scan yesterday. Karo is due 17 Sep. She will be the largest of my 3 babies, weighing 1.682kg at the moment, expected to weigh between 3.2 & 3.4kg.
Heartburn is slightly better, but hips and back are taking a lot of strain. I have now grown accustomed to midnight feasts & have gotten used to not sleeping more than 4 hours a night.
I can usually not carry full-term but will be trying to reach 38 weeks this time round.
Not nearly getting to all baby's things, but have drawn up a to-do list so I can prioritise the most important things. On antibiotics at the moment due to bronchitis and laryngitis that started turning in pneumonia AGAIN. Second time in 3 months. Starting to feel human again.
