Hi everyone , great to see we all made it over here, doesn't matter for those of you who are a bit early , I felt like I didn't belong in either tri for a while but we all belong on this thread together !
Baby - great news your little man is doing so well, I haven't had a scan for a while & won't be having one till 34 weeks to check placenta position but on my last scan my bub was measuring big too - 95th percentile not surprised tho cause me & hubby are tall , cute outfits, I love the ZARA one i buy my 7yo heaps of clothes from Zara , I haven't bought bub anything from there yet but I'm sure I will next time Im there , I'm still undecided about going home outfit, it will be middle of summer here so will be hot , will probably just go with a short sleeve onesie with a nice soft muslin wrap !
Kelly - thanks for posting the link !
Seoul - Such a cute bump and so nice for you your hubby can make it to your next hospital appointment !
Taylah - I was reading your post and thinking I feel exactly the same way. The las couple of days I've been so exhausted at the end of the day, not quite sure how I'm going to make it to the end of term. Sleeping has been a challenge as I can't seem to get comfortable. I'm also hoping to have my lo early and come 37 wks I will be doing everything to try and make it happen, lol. I just need to wash all my lo's things (clothes, sheets, towels etc.) and get the car seat installed. I also need to pack my hospital bag but I won't do that until I'm finished school (around 34 wks)
Baby - The going home outfit that you have chosen is very cute! Congrats on ordering the stroller, it's so exciting when it arrives. I hope your lo turns for you so that you don't have to have a c-section. I'm also a bit scared of having a large baby as I was 9lb 11oz (and I'm not a big person) and my dh was 8lb 4oz. My sil has also recently given birth to a little girl who was 10lb 12oz!!
Seoul - Great bump shot! Hope all goes wel with your glucose test on Friday. It will be so nice for you that your dh can be apart of it too.
I'm getting heaps of movement now. My dh and I will be sitting on the couch and my belly full on move! I can't believe how my lo moves around in there! I also booked a maternity photo shoot yesterday for when I'm 33 wks. So really hoping I get some lovely photos.
I can still sleep well but I'm not as far along as you ladies, my bump seems to be shrinking a little to, it is bigger some days but smaller the rest. I don't mind so much people at least know I'm pregnant now.
I'll be encouraging this one to come out once I've passed 36 weeks. My son was 7 pounds 13 I hope cause this one is a girl that she'll be smaller. Anything under 8 is good for me. I couldn't imagine a nearly 11 pound baby girl!!!!!
Sam - the bad news is we are only getting bigger & more uncomfortable, I finally had a good night sleep because I had really bad hay fever, so I finally caved in & had to have an antihistamine ( while pregnant you can safely take the drowsy ones , not allowed to take the non drowsy ) so I think it helped me sleep !
That's the one thing I have left to do - pack my hospital bag ! Will probably do that after Christmas ! When is everyone packing theirs ??
It's funny now looking down at my belly when I'm sitting on the lounge - it looks like there is a party going on in there , it's really nice to watch & now she is bigger & moving heaps more it's really nice that my 7yo daughter (taylah) gets to watch & feel, she can't wait to be a big sister , she has wanted to be for so long she used to get really upset when we were ttc for so long she kept asking for a brother or sister & we would say we are trying our best , now she is so excited & impatient all at the same time but she is such a sweetheart & kisses my belly good morning & goodnight everyday & if I have any pains she always asks is my sister ok ?? I know she will be such a great big sister :-)
Sam - have you checked in with the Aussie assisted conception girls lately ?? Wishandwait finally got her BFP , naturally believe it or not , 9 days before her planned trip to go camping for 2 months in Africa - talk about timing they had to cancel the trip !
