Burning the candle at both ends?

Jack is 3 weeks old!

Its scary how quick the time is going in – it feels like hardly yesterday when he was born. Hard to believe that his actual due date was supposed to be this coming Thursday 25th. People have been saying to me that I got it easy as the last 4 weeks of pregnancy is apparently to be the worst…..  I look at him and cant imagine life without him now.

We have had a terrible day with him though – he has definitley found his lungs thats for sure. He just seemed to cry for no reason and loud I might add, then calm down after about 5 mins. We have no idea what is up with him, but think it might be wind or worse colic.  He does seem to have trouble when he want to poo and pass wind down the way – we are going to try colic drops and see how they go. He usally naps during the day by he has been wide awake and only fell over about 8pm. At the moment he is still sleeping but will be due a feed anytime soon – we might get to midnight until he wakes up in which case he will have had 4 hours sleep.

Lee did the night shift feeds last night to give me a wee break = and boy am I every so thankful for it. I am just begining to get so tired and feel exhausted – its hard to nap during the day when the wee man is sleeping as its a restless sleep and to be honest have had so many people visit the last 2 weeks I didnt really get a chance to nap.  Mum has been helping with house work when she has been visiting to help me out as Lee is back to work and home late. I hope the wee man gets into a better sleeping pattern to allow me to have a decent nights sleep. Its stressing me out being so tired that I get cranky and cant help it – but there is only so much a person can take after 2 hours sleep!

Got lots of thank you cards to write and post so will do that tomorrow seeing as all the visitors have been and gone =) I am getting Monday to myself which I am soo looking forward to. All I have wanted is one day to myself the past few weeks to get used to Jack and get myself better. I know I am doing too much and its begining to tell on me – I have started to take pain killers again and I havent needed any since my stint in hospital, so I really need to just sit back and let everyone else look after the house – but I cant stand mess!!! And dont want to leave things for mum to do everytime she is over thats not fair either.

Bah!

Jack is begining to stir so going to head and get a bottle organised and ready – his hunger warning goes from 0- starving in a millisecond now we dont get much warning anymore lol that certainly keeps us on our toes =)
