Me and DH are expecting our first DS on 10th January and I just CANNOT WAIT!!! I'm soooo excited its unbelievable!
so far my pregnancy has been A ok but don't want to jinx anything...I feel like we have a long way to go! Does anybody else feel that? I have anterior placenta but feel baby quite a lot thankfully. However I say quite a lot but really have nothing to compare it to?!
So what has everyone started buying etc for our little beans?
Redrose - Hi hun! Thats so cute of your daughter I have just started chrimbo shopping I want most of it done before I start maternity leave then I can spend some time wrapping. Im very excited about this chrimbo... I could have a baby here!!! We all could!
Mel - Ive added you on! Welcome!
Jim_bear - Its funny sometimes I think its ages away but then other times its like OMG not long at all. Its when I think of silly little things like.... only 2 pay months left until maternity leave or something daft like that. We havent bought any of the big things yet as we're still waiting to move into our new house... which hopefully should be end of this month beginning of Novemver. We're going to Kiddicare on Saturday next week to hopefully place an order for a pram. Just hope we can find something we like that hasnt got a 3 month waiting list We have got a cot but need to buy a new mattress. Other than that we've got clothes, some bits and pieces for my hospital bag that we've just added to our grocery shop iygwim... Ooooh some cloth nappies! How about you?
Trissy - Hi Ive added you on too!
When is everyone finishing work for maternity leave? My last day is 4th December but Im starting to doubt myself a little bit as to whether Im leaving it a bit late? Equally I dont want to go too early and end up going NUTS!
My maternity starts 10th December so 4 weeks before due date but I have 2 weeks holiday to take too...
I'm so excited for Christmas this year!! Not having to go back to work in between Christmas and new year even though ill be rolling around everywhere by that point I'm sure haha!
Oooo you have a kiddicare near you?! Lucky!! I've tried to be quite organised with buying stuff spreading the cost out as it were. Bought some nappies few clothes, nursery furniture you could spend so much money on everything!! I'm usually such a laid back person and leave everything untill the last minute but I'm really trying to be organised....!! Christmas shopping MUST start soon lol!
Hospital bag....hmmm I should start thinking about that lol. Xx
Im a SAHM so no work for me!! I love being able to stay at home with my kids
All i have to buy is the Travel system and a bathtub and we are all set for him to get here!
And im almost done xmas shopping for my DD only 5 more things on my list plus her stocking stuffers! And then we are all set my xmas
I'm starting my mat leave on November 16th because of all the complications I've had. I'll be on bedrest from 36 weeks on (or earlier) so I wanted to get a couple of weeks in to finish Christmas shopping and stuff before I'm stuck on the couch.
I think we've got most of everything that we need for baby thanks to some very excited first time grandparents. The nursery is mostly complete, just have to finish off two shelves and hang them and stain a picture frame. The big things are all purchased and assembled and a drugstore was having a big promotion so I got $300 worth of supplies (diapers, creams, medications etc.) for $40!! I was very excited about that. And of course the clothes.. My mom has gone a tiny bit shopping-mad!! She's done pretty good since we're staying team yellow, she's managed to find us quite a bit that isn't just plain yellow or green! Lots of neutral browns and greys and even some blues that could be good for either a boy or girl.
Now I sit up in the nursery and glide and read or sing to baby. As a first time mom-to-be I find sitting in that room to be completely surreal but absolutely amazing.
Christmas shopping?! Yikes! I haven't even thought that far ahead yet!! Hubby and I are thinking about a possible 7 night holiday next week (nothing booked yet, will hopefully book something last minute) and then we're having two bathrooms totally stripped out and replaced mid November. Xmas seems SO far away ... It only seems like yesterday I was looking forward to summer!!
Does anyone else forget that they're pregnant?? I woke this morning and it wasn't until I felt baby move 10 minutes later whilst having a coffee, it dawned on me again lol.
ChattyB- holiday sounds so good right now, you should go for it
We are going to brave the rain this morning and go to rhyme time at the library and then the supermarket. Really want to start on the canvases for Lily's new room but I don't think I'll get too far with her 'helping'
