Rainbow baby here, thanks to everyone for their support

She's here 6 days late, born Tuesday morning at 8.08am labour only started at 10pm Monday night so all happened very quick. She did a poo inside though 😥 So needed to be out Asap which ment mummy tore in 2 places and needed over 10 stitches. Not just that but more importantly needed to be monitored very closely for 24 hours, now she has a cough 😥 We named her Lily Grace. Unsure on her weight think staff made a mistake we were told 8.11lb but on my notes says 3.950kg so something doesn't add up still never mind! Just 1 year ago I was in the worst place ever after losing my first baby at 12 weeks just proves u can go on and have healthy baby (so don't lose hope). A massive thank u to everybody who supported me and replied to posts I'd made. Rebecca

Thank you! We think we have figured out what happened according to Google 3.950kg translates to 8.07lb and when u say 8.07 and 8.11 out loud they sound the same we think we have misheard midwife say weight 😃😃 silly us! Lol x

Congrats! It's a steep learning with a new little one, but it's also the best feeling in the world when you hold her and she falls asleep on you.

Congratulations xx she is beautiful <3

My midwife few years back recommended Hypercal cream to help my bits heal. It's by Nelsons. Herbal not medicinal - hope it helps x

Thank you!! Think I'm healing ok day 3 today and I would say pain whilst moving is only about a 5, no pain when sat comfortable. Found a perfect way of peeing without stinging! Just keeping stitches clean! Thanks again xx

Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful. I had an episiotomy so I know how painful the stitches can be. I recommend sitting on one of those long pregnancy pillows so that it forms a ring. Keeps the pressure off those tender bits!

Congratulations Hun!!! She's beautiful. When my baby Halle Rose was born the 29th April, I also had to have stitches and was also told her weight was 8lbs 11oz. This was also wrong, the midwife read the conversion chart wrong - she was only 6lbs 6oz haha!!

Well done my lovely, she's absolutely gorgeous. Hope all is well with you and baby xxx

Reply

Thank you 😃 All going ok with baby I got a infection in stitches though 😥 Never mind going to pick up some antibiotics later! Hope u and Halle Rose r both well xx

Reply

Oh dear doesn't sound very nice!! Hopefully the infection clears up soon. We are both great thank you xxx
