Hello all - I hope you all had a lovely Easter? I had a quiet one - OH was working and so I spent the time sorting out my clothes and cupboards (!). Oh and I also did some shopping on Saturday. We have ordered our pram/travel system, car seat, car seat base, nursery furniture, mattresses and so on! Exciting times! We also got a really good deal as we bought it all from one shop - they were already offering bargains on the items individually and then gave us another discount as we were buying so much (if you don't ask you don't get!).
I have also bought a couple of ebay purchases - I'm going to a wedding in June and wanted something nice but didn't want to pay too much as I will only wear it once. Anyway, I got an Isabella Oliver dress on ebay for £11.50 (RRP £95) and I have just bought a pacapod changing bag (this one: my present to myself) too. It still has tags on it and hasn't been used but got it £18 less than the RRP. Oh... I love bargains!!! Anyone else done any shopping yet?
Today I'm off shopping for groceries and a present for my niece (its her birthday tomorrow)....I might have to also have a look at nursery bedding!
Lisette and Bizzy - fab photos! You both look great. Lisette - 3 days to go - enjoy your scan, it is amazing!
Chisox - congrats on the birth of you nephew. It sounds like they had a difficult time but that everything is coming good now? Glad to hear it.
Newbie - LOVE the BUMP pic. You are too cute. So forgive me for asking as I dont remember, were you going to find out the sex or are you team yellow?
Chisox - I am glad that everything worked out for your nephew... its always scary when they come that early, but it sounds like she had great medical care.
AFM - I had a pretty uneventful Easter. Went to DH's family for Easter.. and I havent seen ANY of them since I found out I was preggo. I dont know.. a part of me thought maybe they would be a little more excited for me.. but not so much.
I didnt expect to be the center of attention..but damn.. a little bit of interest would have been nice. They are very ... how should I say... Religious people.. but in the same token will gossip about others and judge.. LOL you know the type..
So I am sure they have issues with DH and I NOT being married ..even though we have been together going on 11yrs now.
Lisette, Love the bump pics! So cute, and you are looking great!
Chisox, so glad that your nephew is doing so well now a good friend of mine also just gave birth 4 weeks early, about a 4 lb baby. Def scary! But health care is so great nowadays! I bet that just made you even more excited to meet your own, getting to see such a cute little guy
Bizzy, I would be irritated too if family didn't pay any attention to the fact I'm pregnant! Kinda rude!
AFM, pretty good Easter. Got to see hubby's family and mine. My son LOVED coloring eggs and the easter egg hunt. He is not even 2 yet, and collected the most eggs of all the kids! (i may have had a few practice runs at home to show him how though, hehe) Ate way too much, took long naps, visited with family Now I don't wanna step on a scale for a week at least, lol!
Hey everybody! So glad to hear from everyone and your updates!
Nice bump Lisette! Cant wait for your scan news!
Chisox, so glad your nephew and sister in law are doing well! And congrats on being an uncle! Your boys will be pretty close in age which will be fun!
jd - I think its hillarious that you had practice egg hunts at home! I'll have to remember that!
Ruth - we have bought all sorts of stuff already! Its so fun to get it all set up too!
Bizzy - I hope your family comes around to the blessing that is your baby! I def know that "type of people!"
AFM, I had a great weekend, we got our nursery set up! Its adorable! I will have to post pics soon. We also did our baby registry this weekend which was exhausting! Its pretty intimidating looking at all that stuff when you dont know anything about babies!
Bizzy so sorry you're surrounded by narrow minded people.
I class myself as a 'religious person' but there are people in my church like those you described. Makes you wonder how they sleep at night knowing that He sees all! They should be more understanding if anything but sadly some people think it means they're 'holier than though'.
Hello ladies (and gent) I hope all is well! So now that 20 weeks has come and gone I'm just ready to meet my baby ha-ha. I feel like the only big milestone left is the due date. What can I look forward to between now August. 19?
