Hi everyone I am sorry if I haven't given you all my time over the past week. I probably could have found the time, but the dH keeps insisting that i sleep at every rest period, so I have been . It makes me feel lazy but I guess it is better than being sleep deprived. I am getting enough sleep at the moment and Samuel is luckily giving us the chance to get to know him and to adjust to being parents. I realise he could become really naughty and unsettled at any time so we are making the most of these sleep periods while we are getting them. I am recovering well. The breastfeeding thing is going well and I am just starting to get used to being able to remember to eat enough and to drink the 16 glasses of water I am supposed to be having. No major breastfeeding issues to speak of and I am feeding every three hours. I have to say that I am loving being a mother more than I thought I would and we are having so much more fun than we thought. I seem to have spent my whole time laughing at the DH and the baby and I cannot believe just how strong this maternal instinct is. I wil catch up with all you guys again hopefully tomorrow if Samuel decides to keep having nice long sleeps. If he doesn't then, I'll catch up later in the week. Anyone still waiting.......hang in there, its so worth it!
