2 Month Update - Mum and Baby

It doesn't seem possible, these weeks are still flying by too quickly. I still feel great, in all honestly my weight is starting to get me to a little. I know it takes times but it just feels so slow. I have around 15lbs to go which is only a loss of 1lb in the last two weeks. Slow and steady hopefully wins the race! I've had to stop working out as I hurt my knee. 

I had my 8 week check at the doctors and everything is great. My stomach muscles have closed nicely and I just have a tiny gap now which is totally normal and not considered bad at all. I'm impressed that I managed to close the gap in 6-7 weeks. I am wearing some pre pregnancy jeans but they are still a little too tight on most days, I also still can't fit into some just for balance. I am avoiding dairy as I find they give me really horrible side effects so the doctor said that if i want to cut them out them thats fine. That also means i'm not eating chocolate, biscuits or cake anymore as my stomach just reacts so badly with them. 

Kingsley is doing great. he also had his 8 week check and his injections. He now weighs 13lb 9oz and is still on the 75th percentile for his weight and head, which is 40cm. He did ok with his injections, i kept on top of medicine and that controlled the fever he had. He basically slept a lot more than usual but if he wasn't sleeping then he was crying, poor boy. 

His sleep and routine is a lot more regular now. He usually feeds 6-7 times a day and will nap an hour after each feed. He is going to bed between 9-10pm and will usually wake once or twice during the night, he actually slept 7.5 hours a couple of nights! He can still be a little fussy around 4am.

He is giving us so many smiles and even some little giggles now, it is so sweet. He is also starting to dribble and has certainly found his hands!

He also had a little cold this month and was a bit stuffy, I guess that happens having three older siblings who bring germs home from school and playgroup. I liked using Snufflebabe to help clear his nose especially before a feed or bedtime. Its super handy I can order then with the food shop too!

Tomorrow You Are SEVEN!

Almost seven years since I first became a mum, it almost doesn't feel real. I don't feel like it's possible for Paige to be that grown up.

So much has happened this past year. She lost 4 baby teeth and gained 6 adult teeth. She moved into year 2 at school and absolutely loves it. She has found an even bigger love for reading and art. She gained another little brother too.

Paige is an absolute joy to be around, she is so caring and kind. She is the sweetest little girl and we all adore her more than anything. 

Whilst taking her birthday pictures this year I had to stop myself from crying, she just look so big and I know that when her top front adult teeth come in she will look even bigger!

Our sweet big girl.

Siblings - May 2019

This year is flying by so quickly. I hate it, I really do. I want time to slow down so I can enjoy these four for longer. 

They are all growing up so quickly. I try to cherish and soak up each and everyday but with four life is so busy that its tough to do. I don't think I will tire of seeing them all together and actually seeing them not as a four feels so strange to me now.

They all still adore Kingsley, I don't think that will change to be honest. He is going to love them all so much when he's older and will already give them the best smiles! They love helping me look after him, feeding him, playing with him and just generally be around him.

We are so lucky that they have all adjusted so well.

Six Week Update - Mum and Baby

These weeks are going far too quickly.

At 6 weeks postpartum I feel great. A little bit tired but surely that's expected. My legs are feeling better and my skin isn't too great but apart from that i can't complain. I also lost 3lbs since which is good, it's nice to see the scale finally moving again. i must admit I think i've struggled the most this time around with my body after pregnancy, well my weight after pregnancy. I gained the most I ever had this pregnancy, purely because i didn't have HG so I didn't lose much weight in the beginning when i usually lost around half a stone. I know in time it will get better and i will lose the weight but I am trying to speed it along anyway I can and it looks like it's finally starting to shift.

Before birth and 6 weeks after

Kingsley is doing so well. He slept 6 hours one night which was amazing, he usually does 4 hours at first and then is up every 1-2 hours. He did 9pm until 3am, had a feed and then went back down. Generally speaking he never really had his days and nights mixed up which was lovely, he is usually awake for a little while in the mornings and the evenings too. He is giving us so many more smiles and is cooing at us too. Its so lovely to see that interaction but I already miss my sleepy newborn, I love those first few weeks. He is eating 4oz every 2-3 hours and is wearing 0-3m clothes. He has a little bit of baby acne but not too badly, he also has cradle cap too. He is still a little fussy in the evening around 7-9pm. He's such a good boy in general and is so happy and content.

1 Month Update - Mum and Baby

A whole month since I gave birth, I can barely believe it. Its gone so fast, too fast. At 1 month postpartum I am feeling good, my appetite has come back which is nice. My weight is getting me down a little if im honest. I feel like i've hardly lost any weight but my belly is slowly going down. My legs are still a little sore at times and I have the occasional backache still. I still have my muscle seperation but I am down to a 2 finger gap instead of 3. 

Kinglsey is also doing really well. He recently gave us a four hour stretch at night which is nice. He is on 4oz of milk and size 2 nappies. He tends to be a little fussy around 7-9pm at night, it kind of works out well as the bigger kids are already in bed so me and Mark can concentrate on him.
