Ugh, this little boy needs to hurry up and drop, I'm tired of all the awkward positions I have to try just to be able to breathe. Of course as soon as I find one that works he moves or I get a horrid cramp on that side and have to move again.
I can totally relate! I cant breathe and i dont think its possible for my skin to stretch anymore...i dnt have stretchmarks yet but i dnt think my skin has anywhere else to go! Its very painful... Im crying about it to hubby right now lol...im so pathetic, but it really does hurt and im super uncomfortable!
Hubby bought me a Forever Lazy thingy hahaha!! I look like a blue pregnant teletubby! LOL He said I could wear it at the hospital to walk around while I'm in labor. It's really not a bad idea hahahaha.
Hope everyone is ok? Snow - haven't seen Betheney online for a few days but know it was Eva's birthday this weekend so perhaps she has been busy, hope she is ok.
I had my baby shower today and it was so much fun. I will post some pics in a second. There were about 24 of us I guess and my mum hosted as her house, and laid on the most amazing lunch - lasagna, chilli, jacket potatoes, wedges, home made bread, salad, pickie bits and an amazing cake, bless her. A friend of mine arranged the games and we had some fun, simply games ... Feed the baby - which is a baby face which when blindfolded you had to put a sticker on, on the babies mouth - I won! We then played named baby animals which was so hilarious in terms of wrong guesses - we had pingu for penguin which I loved! We then did the traditional guess the weight, date etc and they all thought I would be early, the earliest Dec 15! My friend bought these tiny plastic babies which are frozen in ice and then served in drinks and you have to what for 'your waters to break'. Was very funny.
I feel very spoilt and definitely have a very spoilt bump. It is so heart warming to have so many lovely friends and family who share in your excitement, I feel very blessed xx
Sonia, so glad you had a wonderful time.

This sounds strange to me and this is the first time I have heard anything like this. I thought breast milk contained everything a baby needs and supplementation just rubs me the wrong way.
Ditty, my dd never needed any supplements and even though she ended up being born in the hospital she never got any vit. d or k shots and no one said anything about it. As long as you are getting enough of your vitamins and minerals in your diet you baby will get everything it needs from your breast milk. But typically, we don't get enough of it in our diets nowadays, so its important for you to get lots of sun and eats foods high in both D and K.

hehehe "easy access"! sounds like something my hubby would say.
This entire pregnancy I have not had the heartburn/breathing issues. I keep having hip/pelvic issues. Last night DH was reading a book to our bean. At the end, DH asked why I had my arm over my eyes. It was to prevent him from seeing the pain b/c LO just kept hitting my left hip and making sharp pains. But DH was so excited to read to him that I didn't want to ruin the moment.
It brings tears of joy to my eyes to see how excited DH is for our first child - 'my son' he keeps saying. We saw a little girl at the store yesterday, she was just singing loudly off key in the aisle. And he was so starry eyed at how cute she was and if our son was gunna be like that in the store some day.
Melly - Rennie's are fine, I checked with my GP and the pharmacist and she made me laugh by saying they'd be closing down if they weren't pregnant safe as it's pregnant women who buy them more than anyone else!
Span - you're not far from me, I am in Horsham x
OMG Sonia, you're about 20 mins from me! I'm in Burgess Hill!
