So im continuing on from my previous journal, here is the link to it:
Aaron is 2 weeks 2 days old
I cant believe my baby boy is already over 2 weeks old, time has flown! I have waited soooo long for this and now its already here i cant believe how quick it really has been after all.
He is such a lovely little baby, very contented and sleeps the majority of the time, he goes for about 4 hours before wanting a feed.
We had trouble to start with as he lost too much weight as he wasnt bf'ing properly. We had to give him a bottle of expressed milk and then top up with formula. He still hasnt got the hang of it so we are still doing both.
Expressing was a long winded chore with my original pump i had bought (only had occasional use in mind when i bought it!!) but since getting my double hosp grade one its been much much better.
He was born at 7lbs 13oz and he is back up to his birth weight now which im very relieved about. He looks so small though!! We even had to buy a load of new clothes as everything else (even newborn size) is waaayyy too big for him, we had to get tiny baby size.
He hates his baths in his little tub, and hates his nappy changes, absolutely cries and cries bless him! He loves a bath with me or daddy though!
Oh and i love it when he does his little startle reflex, soooo cute!!!!
He constantly gets the hiccups - something he always did when i was pg with him lol.
The dogs have been great, i had worries about how they would take to him but they have been fine!
This week seems to have been a week of appointments and arragements. Its been a little annoying having to rush around sticking to times etc. We had the health visitor and midwife on Tuesday, i had doctors on wednesday, we registered his birth thursday, i had arranged to meet my work colleagues today, and my friend is coming over tomo afternoon to take some photos for us which is very kind of her!
There is a part of me that feels sad im not pg anymore, i do miss certain aspects of it. What i dont miss is the constant worry something was wrong with him or something would go wrong whilst he was inside me and i wouldnt know. That part is a relief not to have that anymore. Now its a hole new load of worries!!!
Anyway, im going to leave it here for now, im sooo tired i need a nap!!!
