We gave birth to our son Andre 16 days ago. All is well with mum n bubs. I now get time to write and post due to breast feeding especially in the middle of the night. It gives us all somethig to do for a while.
I've finally managed to come off panadol for an episiotomy I had due to forceps delivery. It was an amazing experience to be able to pull my son out of me as dr said I could. Initially we were growsed out but thought once in a lifetime opportunity so just do it. We did and I believe it helped us bond with him even more.
I can't believe I was worried he was gonna be a boy and how we would react it how some of us would react. All is fine in that area and not a problem thank god. It's been great getting to know and challenging at times especially with his cluster feeds and demand feeding. Never the less all worth it in the end :). After all we did want another child and we got one.
His big sis is still taking a while to adjust and I've had a gutful of her negative behaviour. Am lucky dad still has 3 weeks off thank god to help out.
Only friends have visited and my mum. His mum hasn't bothered still yet as we've had lots of drama with her this year and really pulled away. The baby still expects my husband to pick her up in a v8 car and bring her here even though she can drive and has BMW. So sick of it and lucky he hasn't especially after her rude treatment of me back in January infront of interstate guests. To which still no apology. Then the nerve of his sister and mum being furious we didn't name our son after his dad. Excuse me. Are you kidding me. None of them like me and I'm meant to name him after a dead man! Whatever! There so racist and I've had enough of it. Anyway I'm glad his mum hasn't made effort but makes me sad as can see he wishes she had. Plus I said to him our daughters bday was in feb m hasn't bothered to visit. No present or anything n she didn't bother for Easter she won't bother here aswell and I am right. I want nothing to do with her and need to let rip at her as fed up. Right or wrong way I feel as she's meddled in our marriage too much and was more demanding of his time than a newborn. Thank god that's stopped now and we have our lives back. Just wish he would pull away from her as she's toxic and abusive aswell as neglectful and I refuse to have a granny like that around our kids anymore even if it is only handful of times. She's selfish and a cow and I have no time for her or to bed rules anymore. Just wish hubby was strong enough to distance himself like did originally she. We got married but he's not and it bugs me. Ooh well maybe in time. I point out she's neglectful to our kids now n I won't tolerate it had it as its so rude. Kids done nothing wrong to her. I say she visits your sis who has 3 kids and stays nightly over there and cnt make effort here. Come on. What granny is that? A rude one if u ask me. Anyway better shut up before I really let rip about all her stupidity and immaturity over last few years. Am I wrong for not wanting her in our lives anymore? I get sick and tired of people saying its his fam and he should deal with it not me. My view is when u affect my kids it becomes my business and how dare you neglect them and favour the others and even have the nerve to tell him how often your there helping out. Just so rude. Aghhhhh. Grrrrrrrrr. I've warned hubby if she does visit she will cop a mouthful from me aswell as not putting up with stupidity and rudeness or abusive and negligent behaviour from her anymore.
Must go. Lil man asleep and can go in cot now. Yay
