Not sure you remember me but.....
« on: May 27, 2014, 08:16:57 am »
I survived.  maybe.  Ish.  OK it's still under discussion.

Pregnancy + full time work + stress = not well.  Then had a very rough birth which ended with surgery to stitch me back together.  And now I have a baby who power naps rather than sleeps, so internet access happens about once a fortnight.

Other than that I had a little girl on 9th April at 0510 and weighing 6lb 4oz.  Named Megan Findlay Samantha Hope (should have been Findlay Megan but hubby listened to his idiotic football mates.  I call her Finn and sod him).

She now weighs nearly 10lb, the house is a tip and I am crawling up the walls with sleep deprivation, tail end of post natal depression, and a total lack of new books to read.

I miss anything interesting in the last 5 months? :o

Congratulations Kitty!  Sounds like things were rough for a bit, but getting better.  And Finn is growing well!

Those first 12 weeks are the hardest.  You're almost there.  The sleep deprivation will get better, but that takes a few years (plus a few more).  I have to say, I love my children, but I hated those newborn months.

Lindsay's had a few new books out, hopefully you've had a chance to get them, maybe not read them, but sometime soon!

Now, get some sleep.  I know, I know, so much easier said than done.

Hey Kitty!


Glad you're doing a little better now and thanks for the update! I hope your little family continues to do well. The first few months are hard I know. Maybe come say hi in chat in between power naps :)

Congratulations, Kitty, on your baby girl. She's almost a year to the day younger than my son (born April 8, last year) and I assure you, you eventually get sleep again. It's sad, maybe, but I found television to be extremely helpful getting through those weeks. He had no idea there was a violent cop show on, and I could forget about the misery just a bit.

I hope you've been able to get the help you need with post-natal depression. It's hard enough dealing with a newborn without that on top of it, too. Send me a message if there's anything you need (commiserating about newborns? the memories are still fresh) or if you'd like to read some post-Republic adventures. :)
It's possible we remember the events a little differently.

Welcome back Kitty and congrats on the hatchling :)

Although now I have a sudden and powerful urge to draw a helpless looking BunSic holding a bawling baby Bunelle. Hmm
Once you've made sure that the signal gets through
There's one final thing that I want you to do
Put me where I'll see stars, so that I can see you
And I'll soar like a leaf on the wind

like moony says: do eeeeet!

hmm who'd have thought it would take me 2 hours from turning the laptop on to clear emails and get here. am so unimpressed by motherhood.  and yes i am typing one handed as finn only sleeps in the day if i am holding her.

managed to get republic read and thoroughly enjoyed it, though my phone battery has yet to thank me for downloading the kindle ap.
