How much do I weigh: 51,6 kg – 52 kg
My belly circumference: 88 cm
How much does Lucy weigh: 6030 g
How tall is Lucy: 63 cm
Diaper size: 2
Sleep: Lucy doesn’t sleep so much during the day now anymore. She’ll sleep half an hour, then wake up but mostly she’s in a good mood. At night, puh, the nights are a bit tough right now. She’ll wake up every two hours, sometimes she’s awake for 30-60 minutes and will goo and gaa around. Then she and I move into her brother’s room so that Q and the bubby can sleep (Q mostly comes into our bed sometime in the middle of the night) and most of the times she falls back asleep at 5, 6 or 7 am.
My Symptoms: I have a bit of back ache and I try to breastfeed Lucy while lying down. Since then my back is feeling better. Other than that I am healed now 🙂
Lucy’s Symptoms: Her eyes which we have to get checked by a specialist. She is still cross eyed. She has a red butt every now and again but nothing serious. Other than that she is developing fine.
Maternity clothes: The shorts but it’s so hot here right now that I tend to wear dresses. I wear breastfeeding tops and normal t-shirts at night.
Miss anything: In this hot weather I miss going to the lake/pool
Best happenings that last month:
- Lucy got her U4 and all is fine except her eyes
- The bubby has vacation now for two months
- Q and I both got sick last week but are feeling better again now. I had a sore throat for about 5 days
Sports: I’m going to the gym again 2-3 times a week

So wow, our baby girl is almost three months old and I don’t blog at all. I still want to write her birth story… I want to!
Life is quite busy with a three year old and a three month old at home. Keeping the big one occupied and fed and and and is challenging. Luckily he loves his baby sister very much and is very caring.
He likes to be loud, especially when playing. And then the baby girl wakes up. Very frustrating when I just spent so long to bring her to sleep, she sleeps 5 minutes and the the big one shrieks… argh.
Now he wants that I follow him into the kitchen, so… till next time.
How far along: 1 month after Lucy’s birth
How much do I weigh: 52 kg
How much does Lucy weigh: 4600g
Sleep: Lucy wants to be fed every two to three (sometimes longer) hours.
My Symptoms: Lochia is still there, my perineal and vaginal ruptures are healing and sitting feels much better now
Lucy’s Symptoms: Babyacne, sore butt which I have no idea where it’s from as I watch what I eat so much :(, she can’t get to sleep easily which means she’ll cry/scream lots unless I (or someone) lays her on the chest – she likes body contact. If we go for a stroller ride she’ll sleep a bit but if she wakes up, she’s awake and cries/screams. Same with driving a car. I hope she’ll take the binky soon
Maternity clothes: I wear maternity shorts which I bought after Quinn’s birth and also normal shorts which are elastic
Miss anything: I miss buying clothes in my actual size (and not maternity summer clothes)
Looking forward to: Going to the gym again and getting my body in shape
Best happenings this week:
- Lucy’s cord fell off at 4 weeks and 3 days
- She took the binky while we shopped at the drugstore
- First doctor appointment – all good with her and also her hip, which wasn’t “ripe” after birth is good now
