Today

Thursday, 2nd Mar 2017

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

Today I spent most of the day recovering from childbirth at the hospital, and got discharged in the evening.

Today we went to the hospital for an induction and our new baby girl was born before midnight!

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.

Today I finally got a replacement laptop from my workplace. It is quite slow and noisy, but is good enough for my maternity leave. Sadly still no baby though my colleague who's also expecting, had their baby yesterday! Quite jealous.

Today I had a midwife appointment, after which we visited my workplace to pick something up, and went to Banbury Hill Farm for tea where I did some sketching.

Today Owen threw a massive tantrum when Peter refused to play his favourite game of making every spoonful of dinner 'talk'. We had to explain to him how tiresome it was for us to do that constantly. Eventually we reached some sort of resolution and it seemed our relationship has grown stronger.
