Today

Sunday, 5th Mar 2017

Today went to see the midwives for our 5 days postnatal checks. Afterwards we went to Jaffe & Neale for coffee, cake, and quick sketch, and baby sleeping soundly all this time!

Today baby had been screaming at night and wouldn't breastfeed, we had to call the midwives in desperation. In the end it turned out she was just gassy. In the afternoon Peter took Owen to Witney to get baby a present.

Today grandpa departed to see Peter's sister's baby (born yesterday!). I finally got to play with Owen (who came home from nursery face-painted as The Incredible Hulk), and catch up with various communications and social media.

Today I was sleep deprived from feeding baby all night. Peter's sister gave birth to a baby girl today!

Today grandparents came down to stay in anticipation of our hospital appointment for induction tomorrow morning. Sadly it seems we're going to have to induce labour this time as well.

Today we went to the midwife to try to get some membrane sweep done to encourage labour, however was told we couldn't do it as baby's head was not low enough. So we went to Cafe Nero in Chipping Norton where Owen was hyper and happy to be out.

Today I finally got to eat my favourite coffee walnut cake at Jaffa & Neale bookshop cafe and even got to do some sketching in peace (Owen at nursery). It was enjoyable.
