    Hi Ali

    Lovely to hear your news, congrats on your new arrival. I hope BF becomes easier soon ;-)

    I went to the docs yesterday and the neck of my womb hasn't even started to open yet - so I still have some time to wait!! So I was a bit disappointed yesterday - (Heleen I told you I would be last!!)

    Hope all is well with everyone, looking forward to meeting up soon ;-)

    Love Rach xxx

    Hi everyone!
    congrats on all the new babies (by now rachel has also given birth!!) so I'm the only one still waiting.... and I can tell you I'm getting more tired of it by the minute. I'm going for a check up QM tomorrow, and they will then decide if they have to induce the pregnancy this weekend, so we'll see what happens.
    Good luck on the breastfeeding and everything new.

    H.

    Hi Guys

    Lily Ann was born on 2nd September at 11:28. I was in labour for 3 hours so it was all happened pretty quickly, which I'm relieved about! We are all doing well and back at home now although I am v tired ;-)

    Hope you are all well, good luck Heleen ;-)

    See you all soon

    Love Rach xxx

    Congrats Rachel... Lily Ann is such a beautiful name.
    Glad everything went well for you.

    Me too.. I'm also very tired.. if I don't nap in the afternoon, by 6pm, I can't really function anymore.

    Take care!

    Congrats Rachel,

    What a sweet name Lily Ann. :)
    You're in labour for only 3hrs?? Unbelievable!!! You are such a lucky mom.

    Theresa,
    I found a better way to breast feed Abigail by pumping the breast milk out and feeding her using a milk bottle. Each feeding would last her for about 3 hrs. (120cc) Therefore, I have more time to rest as my mom will help to feed Abigail whenever she needs. I do try to feed her during daytime if I could. It is because I do not want her to stick to the bottle feeding. How many hours were you in the labour? Did you take epidural?

    Heleen,
    Havent hear from you, I'd presume your bundle of joy has already arrived :) Do enjoy every moments of it....

    Cant wait to meet all the mom and babies soon.

    Cheers,
    Ai li

    sorry for not letting you know earlier, but was only discharged yesterday, after having had my lovely GIRL (can you believe it's also a girl) on monday night. It was a long labour, tiresome delivery which ended in a assisted delivery (vacuum) and now Anri are still being monitored in hospital. We hope she'll be coming home on sunday.
    Good luck with all of your little ones!

    Ai li, which pump are you using for pumping breast milk?

    heleen.

    Congrats Heleen,

    Cant believe we all are having girls :-D

    It's going to be a ladies/ girls outing for us soon.

    I am using Mini electric pump (Medela) which it works well for me. However, I have to bear the noise each time i do the pumping. (it is quite noisy, and Abigail doesnt like the noise either, which I have to leave the room each time I do the pumping.. Other than that, i find it very easy to use and sterilise.

    Heleen, If you are doing breast feeding, you may need more than a pump. The more accessories you have, the more comfortable you are. (this is my theory :P)

    After pumping the breast milk, you need a bag/container/ bottle to storage.

    If you do realise that each time you are feeding your baby, another side of your breast will leak. I bought a milk collection cup from Medela, which it collects the milk at the same time I am feeding Abigail.

    Nursing pillow also a great help for better positioning for mom. I didnt have nursing pillow for only 3 days, and I hurt my back :(

    If you have sore nipples, you may look for nipple shield to protect your nipple against the breast pad or bra (rubbing) Some people use pure lanolin, which i find it too sticky for applying. (not smooth) i feel like I am applying glue onto my nipples.

    Hope my 2 cents advice helps :)
    Enjoy the bundle of joy.

    Cheers,
    Ai li
