Thanks Ladies for all your congratulations - I am absolutely over the moon, as DH is to have gotten to this point. I have a feeling it's just going to go so quickly from now on. I told my grandparents last night who were over the moon - this will be great grandchild number 3 for them. I also told my uncle and cousins who didn't know (my auntie knew) - these are my only family in Australia on my side so I'm very close to them - so they are all excited. We told my DHs parents last night who were both crying...and the rest of his fam will know on Saturday...phew!!
I think I have got it in my head that I'm going to finish up work at Christmas, so December 21st, which is 6 weeks out from due date. I'm taking a year off which means that bubs will be 10 months old when I go back to work. This also means that I have less than 100 working days left - or 19 weeks - yaaaay!
Hope you are all travelling well today...
MrsSimmo I hope the next few weeks go quickly for you
Thanks Beta on the co sleeping info
Nala that is the cutest thing ever - Kate has a baby in her tummy too and it's sleeping - sooo precious
Topic of discussion please - pregnancy pillows! I'm thinking of getting a 'snoogle' - any opinions good or bad experiences? Also which side am I supposed to be sleeping on? I know after 14 weeks you're not supposed to sleep on your back....?
i read that the snoogle is good for a BFing pillow too after bubs is born...I've seen it for $90...
Slow thread this morning....just little ol' bored me!!
Another thing is what books / DVDs are good for 1st time mums? I've got 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' and another one called 'Babies' I think - but I would love some opinions on books for newborns...
I'm around SL. The boss is in today so I need to be more sneaky
I have one of those full length body pillows but DH had a fight with it last night and it woke me up, I haven't heard of the other one.
I have a couple of baby books but I can't for the life of me remember what they're called. One of them is really good.......... Damn baby brain.
I have a Belly bean http://www.bellybean.com.au/
and it was awesome towards the end of pregnancy. I LOVED that thing. Only problem, we moved house and I have no idea where it is!!! argh!!
Books are hard. So many different opinions out there.
I liked baby love by Robin Barker (it was realistic to me)
DH LOVED what to expect (and still refers to it!)
a good one for new dads (and us!!) to read is 'so, you're going to be a dad' by Peter Downey. Very funny and well written!
I swore I wasn't going to use a routine. Well, I did. I swore I would never read Tizzy Hall - I did. I swore DS would never go on her routines (he is still on them!)
Its all trial and error and what ever works, go for it!!! I have no longer any opinion on demand/schedule anything because every baby is different. What ever works!!!!!!
its a while off yet, but I highly recommend annabel karmel for weaning advice. I knew nothing about this and she is awesome.
sorry, Im a research nut and I have a whole bookshelf of baby books (if anyone ever wants to visit, feel free ! hee hee)
another essay by Adden with love!
No worries! I'm reading your mind! haha
just found my pillow! phew!
just found this on pinterest and thought you may like to have a read!
Just ignore the formula talk (they push formula - different brands - in american hospitals.. it doesn't happen here as much)
