WOW some of your lists are massive, i am very impressed as so far only have a handful of clothes, a moses basket and now a bouncer. I keep saying that we are going to start buying a pack of nappies and wipes with every big shop we do but haven't started yet. I've just realised that i really don't think we are going to be able to afford everything eeek!
I also like the idea of the secret stork (secret santa kinda didn't work lol).
my back is really really hurting today and i think it;s my work chair doing it, i have a foot rest now as my feet don't reach the floor (bit of a short ass) and i have the back in the right place but it still really hurts.
I'd be interested in a secret stork though I'd like to suggest a budget of £5-7 or $9-11 as we might be posting abroad so there are additional costs. Also, if anything goes missing its slightly less upsetting and forces us to be a bit creative in our gift ideas. Just a suggestion though. Think it would be good if Joanna coordinates it. Perhaps assigned a username to a number?
On constipation...I won't go near prunes as I think of them as the barium enemas of the fruit world...just mean. Lots of porridge, dried dates, pulses and veg for me as usual, and herb tea. I'm just about coping.
We've not bought masses, just acquired bits here and there:
Changing chest of drawers
Premier baby carrier
Boots's free changing bag and various nappies
A full birth to potty reusable nappy set (via ebay) - hurrah
A very hungry catapillar baby grow plus some plain ones
Avent breast shields (freebies)
A soft bunny rattle
We've been promised a car seat, the family cradle, bath, toys etc. There's a few more bits I think.
Whomever got the electric breast pump, wow!!!!
Really tired and fed up today. The house is a complete mess thanks to the never ending flooring work which should be done by the weekend
I haven't bought a lot but we've been gifted tons:
A whole bin of clothes
Car seat (we gave this friend some money for it)
500$ breast pump (we'll have to get new tubing but still Wow!)
Some baby wash cloths
Co-sleeper (bought off craigslist)
Octotunes! (also bought off craigslist)
A few Bonnibuns (cloth diapers) that were on a really good sale
An offer to paint a mural in the baby's room!
I really think that all we're really going to need to buy is cloth diapers and wipes. And we do baby showers here! I think I'm mostly going to ask that people bring a book or something (so we don't get a MILLION toys).
There's probably even more that I can't think of or don't know about because it's at my mom's house (she took a lot of donations from a mother wanted to clear out her stuff). We really need to get the baby's room fixed up so we have some place to put it all! But next week we're getting the floors refinished in the living room and dining room so all the furniture and stuff in there needs to leave....
I'm so excited to meet the little dude (though he can stay in there for a few more months) I get excited every time I see baby clothes with animals on the butt. Can't you just imaging the little froggy and lion crawling around the house?!
Ok so I have gone terribly overboard judging by your lists!!! I've got:
Baby doughnut thing to help sit up
Nappies x 2 boxes
Heaps of wipes including travel case for both out nappy bags
Nappy rash cream x 2 different brands
Baby massage oil x2
Baby lotion x 2
Bath temperature duck
Dummies x 4
Baby 5 year record book
Baby nail clippers
Heaps of teddy bears
Nappy bags 1 for me 1 for hubby
Heaps of grow suits ranging from 0000 to 0
Heaps of singlets again different sizes
Boy clothes in different sizes
Heaps of blankets thin and thick
Baby play mat
Baby rocker (plays music and vibrates)
And PLENTY more!! Baby shopping is my new addiction ha ha!!!!
Morning ladies!! Just a quickie as on my phone. Just had my 20 week anomaly scan. Everything looks great! Only got one picture as baby Glowie is a FIDGET!! Just waiting to see Dr now....will post my one and only pic later.
We are still team BLUE!! Xx
Loads of shopping laddies!!! I am still struggling to find decent mat wear for the next 4 months and ended up spending £180 in M&Ps....got 6 tops, a skirt and trousers though so suppose that isnt too bad...
Baby wise I am a little behind with:-
Bundle of 15 items of clothing - mostly newborn from ebay which I need to go through
6 baby gros - gift - unfortunately blue ha ha
2 little outfits for up to 1 month
2 x changing mats
2 fleece blankets
1 wool blanket
2 big packs of nappies
Think thats all but actually not as sparse as I thought and now nursery decorated can start to move things in.....means I can buy more, a tthe moment its all draped all over the house
MsCrow - actually agree with you on money for secret pressies - hadnt thought about overseas posting....I would agree with $10 US and maybe £7 UK (postage to and from US could be another £5 or so)
I just emailed my OH with a list of everything else we HAVE to get before baby is born and not had a reply yet lol.
Don't think he's realised how much there is still to get as my first email to him was ‘we need to pull our finger out and start to get everything for the baby’. He replyed, sure we can try to get most of it at the weekend if you want?’ hmmmmm not sure that will work lol. I sent
‘Cot bed, bedding (for cot and mosses basket) car seat, family car seat fix thingy (if you stiol want it), pram, nappies, wipes, towels, bottles, steriliser, breast pump, breast pads, baby bath stuff, muslin things, basic baby grows and all in ones, socks, changing matt, changing bag, ummmmmmm yea, probably need more but can’t think of anything else.'
hope there is someone with him to restart his heart .
I really need to start buying stuff. 1 pack of nappies and a few baby grows isn't going to get me far.
I feel awful today. Hardly slept last night because of a pain in my side. Have just come back from the GP who couldn't help much. Tested my urine which was fine but has given me antibiotics just in case it is an infection (and sent it off to be tested properly) and told me it could be ligament pain, so take paracetamol. He said my uterus was nice and soft so wasn't too worried.
It's been an almost constant pain since 10pm last night and I feel sick because of it, anyone else had this, or think ligament pain lasts as long?
