  2. Madeleine - almost 2 weeks old

    Wow - what a two weeks it's been! It's gone really quick but I think I have the most placid and calm baby out of the 4 with Madeleine! She is so content and is a fantastic boob feeder. I've had NO latch problems with her at all, and totally avoided cracked and sore nipples! It's amazing! She still has a bit of a sticky eye that I am cleaning, been about a week or so now. I have the midwife coming (again!) in the morning, so I'll get her to check it.

    We had Madeleine reweighed on Monday ...

    I took Milly and Oliver swimming on Monday night whilst Benjamin and my brother were at Rock Climbing, and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed just being in the water (maybe pregnancy has something to do with that!)

  5. Hospital

    So I spent Tuesday and most of Wednesday in the hospital hooked up to a drip

    In one of my previous posts I wrote about how Milly had picked up a sickness bug from my sister and then she very lovingly passed it onto me. I felt 'funny' on Sunday, and didn't eat much at all, and then Monday the sickness started and carried on ALL day. It was like being back in First Tri with the hyperemesis.

    So Monday evening I tested my pee and straight away, LOADS of ketones So ...
