.I'm in Logan, just south of Brisbane. Where are all the other mums and mums2be from?
Im in South East Melbourne, we are all over the place!
Whats everyone been up to this weekend? I have had a prety quiet one, nothing very exciting.
This arvo we are going to catch up with some very close friends who are 15 weeks pregnant, and my feelings are so mixed! I really am so happy for them (they were trying for a long time) but I just keep thinking HURRY UP DH!! I WANT MY TURN!!!
I found it useful. I also had 'What to expect when you are expecting' which I think probably had more information. but really all the stuff in the books is all on the web, and you get so much first hand experiance here. And then alot is just common sence. I borrowed 'up the duff' from the library but had to have my own copy I liked it so much. Probably because it had a lighter side! I have noticed alot of listings on ebay for both books second hand pretty cheap.
We called DS cellsie like Kas cooke did before he was born. That was a mistake in hindsight. This next bub we are finding out the sex and using its earthside name before its born.
I can totally understand how you feel mrs LA about being happy for friends but also having the feeling of are you serious when will it be me!!!
SUN, I miss sun feels like we have not had sun for so long! Roll on spring!And today we are relaxing in the sun having bacon and egg rolls!!
I saw that you had a massive day off the other day. Very productive, well done.
We have had quite a few fantastic days lately, I'm really enjoying this beautiful weather... Oh those of you who have had babies privately how much were your out of pocket expenses? The receptionist for the ob I want said it was between $2300 -$2500. That doesn't seem insane to me.
I like the idea of the Miyo baby hammock in place of a bassinette and travel cot for when bub is still little.
For a cot, the Boori Urbane Byron or Grotime Rollover or Sleepover. This is one thing that won't be fully decided until I know the gender and where we will be living. We are in a two bed t/house now and will get a bigger place just before or just after bub is born.
I have decided on using MCN, just not sure what brand yet. They are so cute all the different designs, and so much better for the environment. They are also so much cheaper than disposables, especially if you can use them for a second child or sell them when you've finished using them.
There are also heaps of other things that I know I want/need but haven't decided on brand, etc.
We really are all over the place. I too understand about feeling happy but also frastrated and even a little jealous with friends who are expecting.
It was devastating last year when one of my friends who I felt this way about had many complications with her pregnancy and her bub at 22 weeks. He lived for about an hour. It really brought it into perspective. I can't for a second imagine what she felt. It's so important to support our dearest through good and bad. Our time will come when it's right.
This weekend we spent putting up a new back fence. Its been a long process and we got it really high to block out the annoying neighbours behind us. except that those annoying neighbours moved out and a really nice mum of 4 moved in. We have been having big chats over the old broken fence every afternoon when we would bring our washing in. Now the new fence is so high I can only just see the top of her washing line. I am going to have to put a stump at the fence so we can still chat! It feels so werid to be blocking out a friend like that.
At the moment it is only halfway across the back yard, and with the old fence gone all her bottle fed lambs have been playing in our yard. so cute! I hope we still chat. Its lovely having a friend next door!
