Good to hear from you Hinky. I remember how awful that 1st trimester is, constantly worrying... I really hope your scan on Tuesday goes well and will make you at least a little less nervous until your 13 week scan
And Chelli too! Enjoy your scan on Monday, I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes
Well, I've got less than 6 weeks to go now. I took a bump picture this morning (34wks + 1) and thought since our thread is no longer in the TTC section I'd post it here - I think it actually looks smaller than my 32 week bump.
Thanks Rowan. Yes we're pretty much ready. We changed our car for a slightly bigger one for more boot space, bought a new baby monitor because we're going to keep one in Fin's room since his bedroom will be on a different floor to us, we've bought a buggy board rather than a double buggy, and I just bought maternity pads.
I think I just need to buy newborn nappies, and a cheap shirt to give birth in... we also need to sort through Fin's baby clothes and wash what we're keeping. We've bought a few new clothes for the little one. And we can't think of anything else we need!
Chelli I always seem to have a cold all the way through when am pg its a pain!
were good - Martha is walking really well its so cute Im loving it - its helpful at this time as well hopefully she'll be a really string walker by April!
we got a double buggy from ebay ready for April so thats sorted - a cossato side by side - wont fit through the doors like so will require some thinking about logistically lol I figure it depends on Martha how long we'll need it for - weve got the all terrain and i candy as well so if I go out with dh I figure we can take a pushchair each - what I am going to miss when Im out with them both on my own is the good old click the car seat in the travel system option!
what do you guys think about your los sharing a room? we have a 1930s semi 3 bed and we need one room for an office (dh self employed)
Just a quick one from me to say that we saw our little bubba today, heart was beating away so that was a relief. Dates were moved back 4 days based on measurements, but I don't think they can be very accurate at this stage anyway. So next scan will be 7th Jan, just got to keep sane until then and try to remember it's more likely to be a good outcome than not
Awww i'm so happy for you Hinky. It is such a worry, but 7th Jan will come in no time and then you'll see your little wriggler.
I was having a think today while i was on the loo (weeing)! lol mainly because i still kind of hold my breath when i go to the toilet, and i don't think that will ever leave me until i feel this one kicking me throughout the day...
......and it suddenly occurred to me that i'm going to spend the rest of my life worrying about my child whether inside or outside the womb! It was quite a startling thought lol.....especially while peeing anyway lol....
anyway Rowan, loving your bump. Mine is growing too, but i have no idea how to upload pics on here.
I dont think there is anything rong with children sharing a room up to a certain age. I suppose how much of an age gap matters, and whether or not their sleep will be affected?
I generally think once they start getting older, they need their own space, but i shared with my sister for many years, until my older brother moved out and i got his room. Sometimes it's a case of needs must! if it comes to it you'll have to get a wooden hut outside for your office lol
Hi ladies, lovely bump pics and brilliant news you've heard bubba's heartbeat nice and strong Hinky
Chelli I'm in West Yorkshire but I had my scan in the west mids where my mum and dad live. I would recommend where I went to anyone but its too far away for you being in the north west. I'd maybe post a thread in the pregnancy forum and see if there are any ladies in your area that can recommend somewhere close to you
Rowan my LO's will be sharing a room to begin with, even though we are having a boy this time. He will be in with us for the first 6 months but then will have to go in with Maia for a few years.
We have three bedrooms, one of which is currently an office too. We have a huge hallway so we plan to create an office space for DH there eventually. The bigger issue for us is that our third bedroom is 2 floors down from the other two bedrooms (our house is one of those 3 storey town houses) and it just doesn't feel right to be 2 floors away from my LO's at night while they are still so young. I shared with my sister for years, until we were old enough to need our own space and we loved it. I think its fine for opposite genders too although I think that time when they need to be seperated will come a couple of years sooner, which is fine.
I don't really want to move as although our house isn't the perfect set up for kids its perfect for when they grow into teens as it has a bathroom per bedroom so no arguments about taking too long to get ready
Haven't forgotten about scan pics. I'm back home today but working so bare with me and I'll pop a pic on in the next few days as I get chance x
I don't think our LOs will share a room, just because Stan is such a poor sleeper that I think any extra disturbance will be a bad idea. Luckily we have 3 bedrooms upstairs so we'll just lose our 'guest' (junk) room. If he was (or becomes) a better sleeper then they'd definitely share after the initial few months in our room - I shared with my older brother by choice when I was little, as I didn't like to be in a room by myself. We shared until I was 4 and my little brother came along, then it made more sense for the boys to share.
Chelli, hope your cold gets better soon. I have got a sinus infection and it's so frustrating not to be able to take my usual decongestants. Warm milk and honey just doesn't cut it
Oh, and just phoned up and got my scan date moved forward to 31st Dec, to avoid having to take time off work. So I get to see my bubba a week sooner
