I have to confess to keeping mine to put in Cerys' memory box, don't know what she's gonna think of me  ^idiot^ or do with it tbh but can't bear to get rid of it  ;D

So come on how many more of you are there  ??? ;D

There are quite a few as I found out a while ago on another thread, but I absolutely did NOT, not even the clamp!! Didn't cross my mind too (and I'm not sorry I didn't) as the whole cord thing grossed me out. ;D ;D

I had a section - didn't even see most of the cord - only the stump which fell of at seven days and was starting to look a bit gross so that was straight out  ???  Didn't even get to see the first poopy as he did it straight after the birth so missed out on a few things I think  ???  :-\  Didn't fancy cleaning up the meconium anyway so glad someone else got to do it  ;D  ;D

yuck yuck yuck!!

I absolutely adore newborns especially my own, I love every inch of them, but the cord stump is the one bit of a newborn I can't bear, it's so horrid  :-[

No way was I going to keep either of them - ewwwwwwwww  :p

I've got the clamp but not the cord as Megan was still in special care when her cord stump came away - but they did keep the clamp for me

Don't think I would have kept the cord stump though that is a bit gross

OMG they're getting worse - taped in a book, first bogey ;D    Whatever next  ;D  Please please nobody tell us that they've kept their babies first poo ^roflmao^

I have got newspapers on the day of all their births, hand and footprint of Hollie (must do one of the twins), identity tags, first birthday cards, christening cards, letters re their birth and baby record books, first lock from Hollie's first haircut

channy - just seen your post as I was going to do mine.  You could get a back copy if you really wanted to - you can order them on the internet, although Im not sure how far back they have them.
