Dadtrackworld The waiting Game
Our latest addition to the family was nine days late, and labour took 12 hours. We were advised that as it was a second child it may well arrive early, it didn’t.
As above, sleep now. Make sure you have a billion nappies, several thousand changes of clothes for the baby, about a gagillion muslins and wipey up things and at least three bags of jelly babies, you’d be surprised how much better they make things.
Finally, good luck, don’t look down and do cut the cord when you’re asked to. I still get teary when I think of the birth of my two gorgeous daughters.Posted 4 years agowilko1999Member
Mrs Wilko was 2 weeks overdue for both of ours and both times had massive babies. Those overdue weeks were some dark times 😉
There’s no point offering advice, there’s so much on the web already I’m sure you’ve both already read enough to last you a lifetime. It’s exhausting and frustrating, but amazing and the most magical thing that you can do with your lives. Good luck!Posted 4 years agogazcMember
SLEEP!!!! 3 months in and our little un has slept through the night for the first time this weekend, first lie in on sunday morning for a while! 😀 top up on your riding/fitness cos that’ll likely be one of the first things to go… enjoy it btw having a baby is awesome! 😀Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
It’s going to be the most emotional moment of your life so far. The first three weeks are tough, the next three months better and then things will settle down. Best advice I can give you: ROUTINE ROUTINE ROUTINE…. kids love it and it makes them better kids. And if you read to them every evening before bed, before you know it they’ll be little prodigies.Posted 4 years ago
