Babygirl - oooh not long to go!! Like Sarah, I used a TENs machine throughout labour and found it useful, its worth a try
Sarah - Sounds like Poppy is doing really well with her routine. I've had loads of tears about returning to work. Talking to other mums, this is very normal!! When you go off on maternity leave you feel like returning is ages and ages away but as time ticks by you start to think about it don't you. I've really struggled with the thought of someone else looking after Duggie and not being there 100% of his time. I'm very fortunate, I've eventually decided with my manager that I will only work one day a week and DH's parents will look after him, but I still struggle with the thought of not being with him for that day. On the other hand I am trying to think about how much fun he will have and how he will get different experiences with them than I can give. Also, as he is getting older, I'm thinking that maybe a baby-free day might be good for me
. Its really hard!
Well we've had an interesting time! Last week we went to Devon with my parents and sister. Duggie was being sick a lot a couple of days and on the night before we went he was screaming for ages! So he was seen in the out of hours clinic and was given antibiotics for tonsillitis!! The constant sickness continued, not helped by being forced a bitter nasty antibiotic 4x a day
. But then all of us one by one got a tummy bug so I'm guessing he also had that and not just tonsillitis! Mmmmm so as you can imagine it wasn't a very relaxing holiday. Can't wait for the next one at the end of June
I'm after some advice too please.............any of you had babies with this separation anxiety thing?? Duggie has almost become a different little boy. He is grizzly and very clingy and cries ++ when he goes down to sleep. Its horrible! Any advice gratefully received.
