FutureBabyG- I would definitely recommend that you get a bassinet on wheels-- I was so, so happy that ours was on wheels because then I would just wheel him around the house so he was always in sight

Oooh I second LittleLala on the wheels suggestion! We got one with wheels for about $40 at Walmart with my oldest and they both were able to use it! Unfortunately I gave it away so now I don't have one!

I never used a bassinet with either child. It's just one more thing you'll have to transition away from as the baby grows...we did the crib right off the bed, right next to our bed. Otherwise, if we wanted something we could move around the house easily, we'd use our Fisher Price Rock-N-Play, which is AWESOME for daytime napping.

I've never actually been to a Babies R Us...but I'm sure it wouldn't be good for my wallet!

Glad your appointment went well! 10 days away from my glucose tolerance test, and first consultation with a lactation consultant!

We did a Moses basket initially (I think the same thing as a bassinet but not secured to a stand?) and DD grew out of it pretty quickly. It also meant I had to get up to be able to see her because of the sides (I was really paranoid about her stopping breathing initially). We'll still use the Moses basket around the house because it's portable, but we're looking at the Chicco next to me this time around.

ETA: our baby bounceroo was a lifesaver (the bouncy reclined seat things) She slept in it and loved bouncing in it, and was also strapped into it so wasn't going anywhere.

Husband is home! Although still needs huge amounts of looking after, so has temporarily given me more work rather than less 😉

Is anyone else starting to notice that they're slowing down? I'm thinking of buying myself a bump support band to see if it helps at all.

My pelvis has been hurting, particularly when I roll over in bed...I might have to find out the bump support band too!

Anybody else decorating nurseries? I feel like we've left it really late!

Our four year old still sleeps in our room so a room for the baby is not even on my to do list 😉 anyway don't babies stay in the parents room for the first six months? You've got ages 😉

It's mainly for storage reasons at the moment - drawers for baby clothes, etc but yeah, we've still got ages 😂 I just want it all finished!
We do desperately need to order a few items for when baby gets here though - we had a cot delivered broken last time around and it took about two months to be fully sorted 😩

Urgh. Have cold. Pretty sure I had a fever last night. Feel like crap. I really really wish my husband was a bit further down the recovery path today! 😕
Today is going to be a Disney day, I can't handle more than sitting still and hopefully occasionally providing food.
