Sorry I've been quiet, it's not going as well as I'd like this end. The gestational diabetes is ok, diet seems to be managing it, but i'm having to have growth scans and she's below the 10th centile so I've got to have them fortnightly to keep an eye. It's worrying me a bit!
Oh koala I'm sorry it's not going well I know how hard it is not worry in situations like these. Is it because of the gestational diabetes or she's just smaller? Sorry I don't know anything about this. Hope everything progresses well and you feel better. Big hugs
it must be so exciting to feel your little lady kicking away! Have you picked a name yet? Any exciting purchases?
It's very cool! Sometimes I forget about it and she kicks around and I jump lol. I can't wait until you get there too! There's so much to buy it really hit me this week. Started my registry and so far got crib, car seat, stroller and lots of clothes.
Aww starting to buy things is so exciting - but you're right it is so overwhelming!! There is still loads I need to get and I've only got 5 weeks left! When I say loads, I am sure none of it really matters - it's just things that I think are very important. At the end of the day all babies need is somewhere to sleep, lots of love, a few outfits and milk to drink - the rest is all extra! That's what I'm trying to say to myself anyway.
You are absolutely right rose. I am trying not to lose myself in all those "lists" out there of things to buy. Some things are so expensive and the baby can only use in such a short amount of time that I can't justify to myself the need to buy. Luckily my family and friends have donated a lot to us. The only things we got ourselves so far were the crib an some clothes.
Yeah to be honest a lot of our stuff has been bought/given by others! My mum has bought a tonne of clothes. I've ordered some bedding and some sleep suits tonight but they seethe first things we've bought which I actually needed (obviously apart from the travel system etc). Even the furniture was a treat from my mum. She's been so generous it's amazing, as loves buying stuff!
