WEEK 1

After an emergency ceserean, Amy’s first week
was spent in hospital. Thankfully

she is a very good baby. I’ve had some problems
with breastfeeding but it seems to be going okay.
WEEK 2

Home from hospital. I’m still sore from the
operation, but Kevin and my mum have
been a great help around the house. Had a
few short shopping trips. Towards the end
of the week, I found it impossible to walk,
then my right leg swelled up and I was
admitted back into hospital with a DVT (Deep
Vein Trombosis) or blood clot.
Amy is putting on plenty of weight and passed
with flying colours at her two week check-up.

WEEK 3

In hospital. Thankfully Amy was able to stay
with me since I was breastfeeding.
I was in a lot of pain and confined to bed.
Amy was wonderful and slept through most
of the night, only waking for a feed about
2.30am.

WEEK 4

Home again. It’s still difficult for me to
get around, so mum’s been called in again
to help me, since Kevin’s got lots of work
to do. It’s taken a few days for Amy to
settle down again but she’s continued to sleep
most of the night.
