So, finally home! Hospital was driving me crazy by the end!

I will try to fit in a birth story today in between looking after baby and doing an online shop, but in case it doesn't get finished, here are the pics and stats I know you've all been waiting for.

Michaela Pixie....our little pixie girl

Born on 23rd August 2012 at 10:25pm by emergency cesarean section

Birthweight 9lb 5oz

Apgars: initially 6 rising to 8 by 8 minutes old



Taken by Shaun around an hour after birth in NICU



My first cuddle (24th August) - sorry I look so ill



A few days old...she's a proper Daddy's girl







Meeting big brother yesterday - he is delighted, by the way. His first comment was "she's lovely" - which he kept saying over and over with delighted squeals, making us all cry. He cannot stop kissing her.

Oh Sharron I am so excited to see a post from you! Glad you are finally home. I've been thinking about you a lot, hoping you're all doing well! Your daughter is absolutely adorable! And I love the pictures of her and Daniel! Looks like he's doing really well with her I hope that you're healing nicely. I'm curious, are you able to breastfeed this time around??

Thanks girls.

Yes, Aubrey, I HAVE MILK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How exciting is that!!

We tried her on the breast in neonatal but she was getting so distressed and frustrated (I have inverted nipples and plus, she had been bottle fed on day 1 when I was in critical care and got used to teats), we decided to try the breast pump...and this time, it worked!!!!

I am expressing 80-100ml every 3-4 hours and she is taking mostly expressed breast milk with small top-ups of formula. I am SO happy as I really really thought I wouldn't be able to breastfeed again, and had resigned myself to it. So I didn't get my natural birth, but at least baby can have the natural food God intended!
