baby1, congrats!! When i first saw my baby's heartbeat, i cried (and i'm not a crier!) It's such a powerful moment!
i've been doing loads of research on reusables. i really want to give it a try! it looks to me like there are 4 kinds out there. This link was really helpful/informative! I haven't actually touched one yet tho, so I'm going to go to Babys R Us and see if they'll let me fiddle around with them.
Mrs Eddie, good luck with the dress fitting. You will be the cutest MOH And yay, you are down to the last month! I can't believe how fast it's gone by!
annio, your work is lucky to have you baking cakes. Where I am, it's way to hot to be baking!
morebabies, you and your DH deserve sainthood, I think My hubby is out of town all summer, and I can't wait to get my hands on him when he comes back!
Lotus how are you feeling?? Anything moving along yet?
Mrs. Eddie good luck with the dress alterations! I think getting that last fitting as close to the event as possible is best. My last one was only 2 weeks before the wedding and unfortunately I popped a little withing those two weeks and my boobs also decided it'd be a good time to get bigger. Hopefully being further along in the pregnancy you won't run into those problems though!
That's great baby1!!!!! What's next for you? Are they going to check again any time soon?
We will be sticking to disposable diapers here. I think it may be a little less common to use cloth around here.. or at least I don't know anyone who has used them. I do like the idea of them though.
As for sex I think I may see how things go after my scan on the 10th and go from there. I mean it is my birthday and all.. Some days I swear it feels like this baby is just going to fall out of me. Yesterday being one of them. I'm trying to relax and not do too much but I keep getting this overwhelming feeling that there's so much left to do before this baby comes and even more so should he decide to make an early arrival.
I've also been getting a good number of BH lately and they are definitely getting stronger! 3 weeks from tomorrow I will be full term! Really hoping to make it until then.
Thanks for the extra info on cloth nappies - really keen to try them so going to get lots of research done over the next few months!
Morebabies - The early pregnancy unit have discharged me as I've stopped bleeding and all was well on the scan. So under normal midwifery care now - have my booking in appointment on Monday then my next scan will be what should have been the first official scan at 12 weeks. So only another 3-4 weeks until we get to see our little bean again :-) Hope you have a great birthday
Baby, congrats on seeing the heartbeat, amazing! I didn't know that your great niece was named Isla; it is an amazing name Wow, I can't believe that you're a Great Aunt at 31!
Aw thanks Buttercup, I hope I look cute and not like a swollen, sweaty mess
Morebabies, yeah I think the closer that I can get the fitting to the actual wedding the better. The dress is huge on top and too long so if nothing else I will definitely need to get it shortened. I also discovered that the shoes that I got for the wedding might now work now too. My feet were swollen when I tried them on and they were quite tight. I might think about getting some other ones to ensure that I'm comfortable all day. Oh the joys of being pregnant
Oh a happy note, I got to see my sister try on her wedding dress (final fitting) and it looks amazing. She is going to be a beautiful bride!
Aside from not feeling very good over the weekend my awesome friends threw me a surprise baby shower! Nothing too big or anything just close family and friends but I thought DH, the kids and I were going to a cookout at my friends house and as we were pulling up I saw a bunch of my family's cars there. We got tons of clothes which makes me glad I haven't bought much for clothes and also the crib bedding that I wanted and a few other things. It was really great and I couldn't appreciate it more!
How is everyone else doing?? Any baby news yet Lotus???
Oh how lovely of your friends more babies! Glad you had a lovely time, I hope it made you feel a bit better
I won't be having a shower, it's not really the done thing here in the UK, although I think they're becoming more popular! I'd love to go to one though!.... The next best thiing for me is getting free 2nd hand stuff off friends who already have children Today I picked up 2 binbags full of girls clothes and I can't wait to go through them!
Toms Mom I am in London and I had a baby shower and been to many. Your rioght they have become popular over last 5 years or so.
Baby1 I remember 8 weeks and time has really flown by. 12 weeks scan a real comfort. Try to relax till then.
More Babies - Still waiting and have had little pains at night mainly more braxton hicks but nothing major to report. I will keep you all posted my due date by scan is today my date was the 4th so we shall see.
