#Colostrum AKA #LiquidGold; When every little drop counts… and you've spent so long trying to achieve it… and then you accidentally squirt half of it out, and it's lost! πŸ™ˆ From start to finish, today has not been my day! Since little lady could arrive within the next 2-4 weeks, I've started with #colostrumharvesting again, in the hope that this will help with her blood sugar levels when she arrives (should it be needed). I did this for the little man too, since he was born with a cleft, and we weren't sure that he would be able to latch on to breastfeed. As much as we persisted, he just couldn't manage it, so it was wonderful that we were able to have the colostrum ready for him at hospital. Fingers crossed I manage to get some stored and that too much doesn't get lost in the process…! #gestationaldiabetes #gdukmums #diabetesinpregnancy @gestational_diabetes_uk #handexpressing #phdmum #pregnancy #35weekspregnant
