I had several weddings and a Christening to go to early to mid pregnancy last time. I went to an independent maternity shop who actually do online stuff too and got some really stretchy dresses, they were wonderful, fitted from 4 months to last thing (I'm wearing a brown one in the hugest bump picture). I got a bright red one that was my fave for the weddings.
The shop I went to was called Expecting in York. I got a white broderie anglaise dress from La Fee Noir an online only British shop for my wedding dress. Service at both was great.
Thanks for the wonderful list emma, really useful! I'm luckily being given a load of stuff from my sister as her little one is now coming up to 3 yrs. We are being given a cot, travel system among many things so until I get that stuff all together I should know what's left to get then.
Bad luck on missing the yoga, are there any DVD' s that you could get online to do at home?
Jbell - think I missed your question from a page or 2 back, I don't find out gender until 10th june, ages away
Eeeshk Sasha! That doesn't sound good! What's happened? I'm a bit worried about my gums as they're very red and bleeding when I brush but they're not sore. I keep meaning to make a dentist appointment, I think you've spurred me on!
Location: I live in Southern California. Its no Rocky Mountains but hey.
My gums were just red and bleeding but then they suddenly (over the course of a night) became inflamed and extreamly painful to the point where running my tongue over my gums set them to bleeding! I highly suggest at least getting a preventive cleaning but a deep cleaning if you can or your due for one as it will clean below the gums as well. I have to say i woke up in pain and I'm going to bed soar but relieved!!!! Don't wait till it hurts get it checked out even oif its just red.
Oh no! I am totally sympathetic. I (strangely) got it at 14 and the dentist was most surprised, and had a good giggle with the school matron who took me to see him. It wasn't as bad as yours sounds but was sore and prickled like bad nettle rash if I ran my tongue over it.
I have bought an ENTIRE new maternity wardrobe. I swore I wouldn't but felt so crappy in all my old clothes and the styles are far more forgiving this time around. I have pretty much bought the whole of MitMatMamma! So many new t-shirts and blouses - all but one empire line style, one is an under-bump belted style and surprisingly flattering on.
The bump is already big enough that I managed to wedge myself in a toilet stall at the restaurant I ate at last night!
I hope your gums are a bit better Sasha!
I am still getting headaches almost every day, so trying to drink more water, I am not really sure what else I can do. I was so tired and fed up the other day I just sat on the stairs for a rest after carrying a box of DD's toys up and DH asked what was wrong triggering me to burst into tears! He was lovely that day and finally said he probably isn't sympathetic enough about me having work, DD and being pregnant! Then his new computer arrived and despite having an empty dishwasher, everything is still all over the kitchen! MEN!
