My son was due on 18th Friday, but he decided that he had enough time inside my tummy and decided to come on Sunday early morning. I was not feeling comfortable after my checkup on Saturday and decided to visit the hospital to see if what I feel is actually labor pains. And then when I was getting ready, my water broke :) So my junior came on 1:37 am on July 13th. I will not say it was an easy task to push out this teeny weeny thing, but then everything got over quite quickly :)
I have been planning to put up a post here, but then was procastinating the task for few days. Junior had an unexpected bout of severe diarrhoea which saw us back in hospital within two days after we were discharged. Now Junior is on ‘good’ intestinal bacteria diet everyday :P.
I was quite worried about my toddler daughter who has not spent a night away from me and then she surprised me by waving me off to hospital at 11 in the night when I told her that I will bring the baby back when I come…It was like a miracle considering she was very sleepy at that point. To be frank, she is behaving much better than expected, though she is compensating for all that by throwing all the potty training out of the window…Sigh!
The night visit to hospital happened second time when we saw that Junior may get dehydrated if we don’t control the diarrhoea a day after we were discharged from hospital. It seems that few newborns does not take well to mother’s milk also initially. Thank god there were no intravenous fluids or NICU stays for the little one.
So now we are back home, trying to take as much rest as possible and catching some sleep whenever both kiddos allow me to do so…Will update you with more news and reviews in the coming days.
On books, thanks to hubby, I am reading ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ by J K Rowling. He bought the e-book when we were in hospital and he was bored with whatever he was reading :)
