Have a good lunch Cupcake. I wanted to go to Lakeside as Kiddicare have opened a new flagship store there, but don't think DH is up for it. Taking decks down too, next time I see them our princess will be seven months...eeeek!
It's been the same for my poor hubby, as soon as he puts his hand on my belly little miss goes quiet then the second he moves she goes crazy!! He thinks he has felt a few movements but not sure. It doesn't help that I have an anterior placenta.
For me today is almost over (it's 10pm Saturday here) so we are vegging on the lounge under the air con.
I feel for you and the heat Foxy, which state are you in? I spent a christmas in Perth and almost died, and that was without a hot bump We have -10c today, so i've got it good
Hann I have a duvet and am contemplating a pillow, they do both from birth here, although feels a bit weird to me, i'm going to talk to my midwife about it next time I see her and see what she says about the exact recommendations for both, i'm thinking I will use a blanket at first and see just how wiggly of a sleeper he is, to see how comfortable I feel about using either or Our house is warmed by the furnace and when the temperature gets up higher, we stop using it and turn the heating back on for a little heat when we need it, and i'm just thinking if he comes early may then it can still get quite chilly at nights, otherwise I won't use the duvet till next winter when he's about 6 months
Sorry I've not posted for what seems like forever...what with christmas, new year, a hubby in the army, it's been so hectic!! Finally got a couple of minutes to sit down before it's rush hour again (Finally going to get my hair cut into something a little more manageable and "mumsy"!) so thought I'd check in!
I'm 23 weeks today (YAY!) and I'm finally getting a proper little bump that's there all the time! I always thought I'd be huge by now, but it's pretty petite...the only thing that's ever been petite on me for sure! lmao! Doctor did say though at my appointment this week whilst feeling my belly "He's certainly not a small one is he?!" EEK!
When it seemed like all I was doing was worry that I wasn't feeling my boy moving very much, in what felt like overnight my flutters turned to fully fledged kicks! They are such a weird feeling, but now I love them! My DH can feel them pretty easily now, and we sit and laugh most evenings watching my little Jenson kicking away and making my tummy wobble!
Still got morning sickness, which is pretty pants, but I've resigned myself to the fact that this is probably going to stick around all pregnancy...I've started getting the all-day nausea back too if I'm having a bad day so it's not fantastic!
I noticed someone wrote about getting stitch-like pains if they walk too much...I get them too! I feel like an old lady walking along, then suddenly having to walk like a snail because I get the worst stitch across my tummy!
Nursery is looking good too!! I'll post piccies next weekend when it's all finished!
I'm so excited that we're all moving so fast, and there are some LOVELY bumps (jtink and foxy to name a couple, I HAVE been stalking!!)
Hope you're all well, and hopefully I can check in more regularly again now!xxxx
Wow I just missed like 6 pages in what feels like overnight lol!
Love all the bump shots, you all look great!
Jules - the mattress looks good! We actually had a pillow and still do for DD (shocking I know!) but it's one that's for babies and tested and used all the time in Sweden where they have very low cot death rates. You have to position them properly but it stops flat head syndrome.
Oo do you have a link for it? I have slept for years on a ripple foam mattress topper and was even thinking at one point about getting a bit of that for the cot. Honestly they're so hard it must be like sleeping on the floor for the baby! Guess a pillow too could be put under the mattress protector and fitted sheet if someone was really worried about suffocation etc. I know its not the cot death advice but babies often look uncomfortable with their heads pressed to their chins from laying on something hard and flat, a bit of contouring around the head and neck seems to make sense to me x
