Congratulations Prettypink!!! That is beautiful news. I am so glad that the labour went really well. I hope that the day/night confusion ends soon.

I've been MIA for the entire pregnancy, but I thought I'd check in and update with a "baby has arrived!" post in case anyone remembers me :-)
Audrey Judith arrived last Friday (24/2) after a short labour. 9.5 hours from my waters breaking. No gas or pain relief. Second degree tear - but I really think the stitches were worse than the birth!
She was 2925gm, 47.7 cm long, and HC 35cm.
Hope everyone else is hanging in there if bub hasn't arrived yet, and congratulations if you too are starting on the next phase of the journey!

Awww! She is gorgeous. Congratulations! She has beautiful big eyes. I hope that you are recovering well and enjoying lots of cuddles.

Wesley arrived on the 27th of Feb (our wedding anniversary) a week early.. Been home a couple of days now and slowly getting into the swing of things.
He looks just like his father and like the boob (also just like his daddy) Hes a bit of a farty pants too.
3.19kgs (7lb) 51cm long 33cm head.
I had a 2hr 42min labour (fast) so only had time for gas, got a few minor internal tears but nothing major, healing nicely

YAY more baby news!
Congratulations on the birth of Wesley, Brontie! It sounds like a very fast labour! We have a friend named Wesley who texted my DH constantly asking us to name our baby after him .
Elias will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. I can't believe how fast time is going. He is just over 5lb now and is looking chubbier every day. He still sleeps a lot but is having more awake times. When he is awake he gets lots of love and attention .

Tyler Matthew arrived on 27th of Feb, and has almost exactly the same stats as his birthday buddy Wesley
3.19kg, 51cm long, 34cm HC.
I was induced, but needed an emergency c-section 5hours later when Tylers heart rate slowed too much and wouldn't come back up. He was fine as soon as he was pulled out.
We have been home for a few days now, all is going well, except for 2 hourly feeds which I'm finding exhausting!!!

Congratulations on the birth of Tyler Matthew, MummyLinz!!!! I hope that you are recovering well from the C/S. It is very scary when the heart rate starts to slow during labour. I hope that you are able to get some rest in between the feeds.
More wonderful news!!!! Thank you so much for sharing ladies!

Alby Robert Christopher
3650grams (8lbs 8oz)
52cms long and HC 36.5
defintely not the birth I had planned and still trying to deal with that but he is a dream baby and we are all totally smitten
Posted 13 March 2012 - 12:54 PM
Congratulations on the birth of Alby. He is just gorgeous!!!! Lovely photograph.
Sorry you didn't get the birth you wanted. I saw your response to my post about clexane injections (haven't got back to post there ) and it sounds like you have had an awful time . I hope that you are doing ok.
Posted 13 March 2012 - 04:17 PM
Thanks ladies - he's a tad cute *if i do say so myself* lol
Alby got his name because we just couldn't agree on a name and neither of us were budging on our favs (DP Alex & me Kobe) so we combined the two and came up with Alby, plus it's now been brought to our attention there was an Alby Mangels?
Yea nayjay - not the best end to the pregnancy but at the end of the day the goal was healthy mum and bub and that's what we got. I'm just trying to deal and process all that has happened to get closure atm .. He's a dream baby, feeds perfectly and most nights only wakes once from 9pm to 5am! We dont hear peep out of him until he's naked, he loves the bath and has slipped into our lives like he'd always been here <3 it's taken 4 babies but I finally got a quite and good sleeper *touch wood* lol!!

has slipped into our lives like he'd always been here <3Isn't amazing how that happens. I hope he continues to sleep so well for you. I really like the name Alby. It is very cute and definitely suits your little one!
there was an Alby Mangels?I remember Alby Mangels' shows (I must be old).
Posted 25 March 2012 - 08:51 PM
Damn I must be old as well - who doesn't remember Alby Mangel??!!! OF course Mel your your Alby is much much more cuter!

tintin - How are you and your little one's going?

Hi naysay -sorry been ages since I have been on EB. Um now where we're you at with my twins. Basically we are at week 10 today. Angus is doing really well and weighs 5 kg and is travelling along the 25 percentile. Milou has been in at the Royal Children's Hospital since birth. She finally had her moped heart surgery last Tuesday and it went really well. They were going to send her home today but she is not feeding very well at the moment we expect her to comef home on Monday -yay. Her weigh is 2.5kg but generally she is doing really well. After 10 weeks we are over going to the hospital. Thomas our 2 yo has been diagnosed with developmental delay due to his speech and eating issues so we have managed to get him on the early intervention service that Milou is in due to her down syndrome so at least they can review us as a family as opposed to individual children.
Hope your well

tintin - Thank you so much for the update. I have been thinking of you and your little ones especially Milou and her surgery. It will be wonderful for you when she comes home! Monday will be a wonderful day. So great to read that Angus is doing really well! Sorry to read about Thomas's diagnosis. It is good that you will be able to use the same early intervention team. It is hard when you have to relay the same information to different teams. Hopefully this will mean that sessions and programs can be made to suit your family. We went through Early Intervenion (speech, O.T and Physio) with our son, Travis. We did a year of intensive speech and O.T ready for school and he went ahead in leaps and bounds. This year he started prep and I believe that it really helped him.
The last ten weeks must have been so full on for you. I hope that you are doing okay.
Hoping that all the other March DIG ladies are all doing well and enjoying the precious moments with their new little babies. Best wishes to everyone!
