    Yes Im going to breastfeed her for the first little while anyway especially seeing as she was born so early. So I was up three times during the night to feed her!!

    Luckily shes taking to it ok and Im starting to see a bit of a pattern already. Her feeds during the night and this morning were about 3 hours apart so its nice to have a rough idea of when she hungry!! Shes asleep now(again!) and due another feed in about an hour so we'll see how that goesimage

    Still cant believe shes here though!!!! Im sitting here staring at her and it feels like Im imagining it. H2b is the same...hes off work now for this week so he has plenty of time to sit looking at herimage

    Anyway enough about me!! How are you?? How far are you now?

    wow so it all sounds like its going well...

    You do know once you get into a routine, her feeding pattern will change!!!! lol always the way!

    I want to breast feed too, but obviously my opitions are open!

    you both sound very happy and healthy. How was the labour did you have any or many drugs??

    Again my options are well and truely open!!

    I'm ok, i'm 28 weeeks + 3 so i still got a long way to go really! but the weeks do tend to fly by.

    Dont get too tierd , make sure you sleep when baby does!

    Labour was fine- I think I was very lucky to be honest!!!

    I went in to hospital at around half 11 at night and she arrived at 4.22am but 'technically' I was only in proper full blown labour for about 3 hours of it.

    At about 3 the doctor suggested giving me an epidural which was fine with me but then things started to progress fairly quickly so they decided against it. So in total I only had a few strong painkillers!!! And that was thatimage

    So I think I really was lucky to have breezed through it!!! I dont think you can decide what to do really until you're actually there in labour. Good idea to keep your options open!

    And I am expecting her to change her feeding pattern at any time lol!! x

    I'm really good at the moment thanks. Had quite bad sickness till about 18 weeks but apart from the indigestion I'm great now. Love the kicking game its the best. It must have been a total shock for you going into labour so early! I'm delighted she's so perfect and healthy! x x x
