    Now, there seem to be SOOO many products around for bubs but I've read that you really need only one product that does it all (shampoo & body). I guess you would then need a moisturiser? Talc? Again as I said so many options...Would love your opinions on this topic along with any good brands....

    Thank you

    I like natural products, but some smell really bad!!!
    I use Burts Bees (from David Jones and Myer) as its mostly natural and I LOVE the smell. They have a great belly balm for stretch marks too!
    I stay away from talc and use the powder that doesn't contain talc (again, i use Burts bees)
    Go with what you like the smell of cause baby will smell of that!
    I got a few samples of things and that was worth while!
    I use a powder, a body/shampoo wash in one, nappy paste (i get that from america.. its awesome!) and thats about all.
    I also got a medi honey ointment thing that is awesome for rashes.
    Keep it simple cause you get lots of samples from everywhere and you will develop a favourite soon enough.
    hope that helps
    I will be interested to hear what people like cause I get sick of the same smell!

    I recently read talc is not recommended as can be ingested into lungs. Makes sense I guess but wouldn't have thought about it. Certainly wouldn't be good for asthma sufferers!

    oh wow, this thread moves fast in a week.

    To all the newbies - Welcome to the thread always nice to have a few extra people and opinions on board.

    To all those who have had scans - It's fantastic that everyones scans have gone sooo well and that we haven't had any problems come up. Good luck to anyone that has scans coming up.

    Nicsta - Must be a weight off your shoulders having told work, at least you don't have to stress about that any more.

    AFM - Been at the blue mountains for the last week on holidays which was nice and relaxing. Realised how unfit I am, or it's harder work carrying around a small human than I thought . Past the halfway mark now YAY!!!! have our morphology scan on Tuesday, can't wait to find out what we are having.

    Went to a giant teddy bear shop at the mountains (I have a thing with teddy bears ) Bought a big black bear called Silas for the baby and DH bought me a huge lil peepers cat, called Chilie. Pics below

    Hehe chilie looks like that little critter from Madagascar well kinda I think it's in the eyes. Cute none the less. Glad you enjoyed your break, I've also noticed how "unfit" I have become but I've noticed my heartbeat is beating like crazy and I'm breathing heavy without moving lol so I'm putting it down to that

    hi, i'm Jo, I'm due end Jan/early Feb. Not too sure how this site works, but found the thread, and would like to join. Also curious if any of you are in the Bondi area, or if you know where I can find support groups in the area?
    cheers

    We have our morph scan tomorrow, very excited to find out the gender too! I'm worried something will be wrong of course, really feel like it will be a big milestone, but knowing this journey something else will stress me out in a few weeks. I've already started noticing when there is less movement, poor baby is sleeping but I just want it to wiggle all the time.
    Anyone else feeling movement? Such a lovely feeling

    Welcome Jo, what date are you due, I'll add you to our role call :-)

    Good Luck Beta, have fun finding out the sex, I can't wait to feel movement!!

    Don't stress about the lack of symptoms Mrs Simmo, I've had very little, not even sore boobs, although they are much bigger!! Lack of symptoms doesn't mean much, each pregnancy is different & just means your body handles the hormones well.

    I went shopping yesterday & bought summer clothes :-) we are going to Singapore in a few weeks so needed things that would fit!!
