Post Update on Shawna
AARRGGG just lost my entire post twice!! :hissyfit:
Short version: No weights to post, Plunket have been once and not coming again until 17th. :shrug: I thought they came once a week, but oh well.
Shawna is doing really well and has only just started wearing NB clothes! They are still a bit big, but she is getting there! :excited: 9 weeks old next week and what a busy time its been, she likes her feeds every 3 hours, sometimes every 4 over night if I am lucky. She slept from 9pm through until 3am last night!! She has been doing this on the odd occasion so hopefully it will become a regular thing! She is a very happy content wee girl, but look out if you take too long getting her bottle ready!!
Here is a pic taken a few days ago.
Will post more when I have more time, my lost post was a novel but she is due to wake up and I need to be on time with her feed!! :rolleyes:

Post Re: Update on Shawna
Well Shawna is now 9lbs 5oz and is 54cms long!! Wahoo 2 months old!! She has totally changed her routine on me. Last night she wanted a feed at 8.30pm, then again at 12.30am and then she slept through until 6.30am. Just when I was getting used to 9pm, 3am, 6am. So naturally I was in a deep sleep at 12.30 and took ages to work out what was going on so she had to wait for me to sort it out!!, and of course I woke up at 3am and just stared at the monitor waiting for her to wake up! I have no idea what she will do tonight, but that doesnt matter, its Dads night!! Knowing my luck she will sleep right through or something......
Here are a couple more pics - sorry I cant get them any smaller??

Well Shawna has changed her sleeping pattern AGAIN! I like this one a bit though, sometimes she sleeps through! Well she has done twice, but still there is hope!
She fits some NB clothes perfectly and has even outgrown a couple of pairs of pjs!!
Here is a pic - sound asleep in her bed, looking at the pic she looks far to big for her bassinet, but its the angle I took the photo on, she has wriggled up and to the side!

Post Re: Update on Shawna
OMG!! I put Shawna in her cot for the first time last night, she looks so small! Once she realised she could fly her arms everywhere she loved it! She escapes her swaddle these days - she has found her hands!!
At 6.15 this morning, her Angel Care Alarm went off. MY GOD I HAVE NEVER MOVED SO FAST IN MY LIFE! I picked her up and she got got such a fright - poor wee thing screamed for ages. I was so happy to hear that scream I couldnt stop laughing (bad mummy!). I am not sure what happened because we had tested her alarm before putting her in the cot and it was ok throughout the night. Poor DH was not allowed to leave for work until I had my shower, I was too scared to leave her! She is sound asleep back in her cot now tho.

We have her shots today, I am dreading taking her out of the house, the weather is so horrible.
Will update later with measurements and hopefully a photo of her in the cot!

OMG!!! Tracey your heart must have been just about jumping out of your chest when her alarm went off!!! Thank god that all is ok. I so know what you mean about the first time they go into their cot... :( they looks so tiny and vulnerable(sp). Good luck with the shots today, Jess had hers last week, and was still grotty the next afternoon.

Post Re: Update on Shawna
Well Shawna was brilliant at the docs! She smiled and cooed at our GP, he said all is good. Then we went off to the nurse and Shawna weighs 5.18kg now! I think that is 11lbs 4? No other measurements were taken. DH held her while she had her shots, ooohhhh the noise!! She settled right down after the shots and waited with Daddy in the waiting room while Mummy had her smear test - oh the joy.
The nurse asked me about pregnancies etc, and we had a chat about Georgia. She said that our GP and his wife recently lost their wee one, very suddenly. I didnt ask for details although I really wanted to, I didnt think it was appropriate, but I did keep thinking how he was so good with Shawna and all the while his heart must have been hurting. On the way out the door I just wanted to go back into his room and give him a hug. I dropped DH back at work and have been in tears since.
Shawna is still sitting in her car seat all relaxed, but I better go and get her bed made.

Oh Tracey that must have been so hard for your poor GP, man he must be a good guy. I know where you are coming from with wanting to give him a hug. Glad that S handled her jabs ok. Man your DH is good, my DH has never been with me when either of the kids has had their jabs *big wuss!!!*

THE BLARDY MONITER WENT OFF AGAIN!! I am not sure what is happening but I flew in there again and she got another fright, I am not sure if its because she is wriggling sideways or if her breathing is actually stopping for a short time - but it went off early this morning, around 5.30am. Someone told me to get rid of the thing, but I am too paranoid to do that!

Anyway here are a few more pics.

awww Shawna is just too adorable. As far as the monitor is concerned, is there any reason medically that you need it? If not I would get rid of it, but that is just me. :shrug:

Hey Tracey - "S" is growing like a mushroom :) Very quickly :lol: Love the new pics :)

I had a AngelCare monitor with DS and couldn't have survived without it ! His went off a couple of times too and it gives you the bums rush outta bed like you wouldn't believe :lol: But very frightening :shock:

His did go off until he was a bit older and managed to move of the sensor - I think he wiggled up the bed :roll:

I would just check that you have it set up properly, and that you have the sensor thing under the mattress in the right place - it might be missing her slightly cause she is so little in a big cot :)

I hope it doesn't keep going off, cause I know how frightening it is. A friend of ours swore by the ANgelCare as she had a 29wker, and the hospital recommended it due to his prematurity, and the risk of sleep aptnias(sp).

Maybe even phone the manufacturer and speak to them about the false alarms.

Take Care

She is adorable, awwwwwwww, cluck.

Does your monitor have a sensitivity control? Our angel care monitor does, but I don't think the older version does. If it does crank it up. I tested and tested to make sure it was doing what it should and not going off needlessly but not picking up movement that wasn't bubs. Ours went off a couple of times with Gabe and the same with Lols, I wouldn't have been without it. I'd rather a few false alarms than no alarm at all. Also check where the sensors are, if they're not right underneath bubs then they might not be picking up on the movement.
