28 weeks! Yay! Just need to keep this bub baking for as long as I can - BUT knowing that if I had to give birth now chances are she would be fine!! So relieved!!
Good [Friday] Morning Ladies. I've just flicked through the last couple of pages and made my notes!
Nicsta - nice bag - I was looking at Vanchi ones too. Ended up getting my Oroton one yesterday for $172 very very very happy!!!
Meshell congratulations on getting to the third trimester and Beeanksta - weldone on 30 weeks! What does everyone class as 3rd trimester? 26 or 27 weeks?
Adden - great news from your OB appointment - sounds like you've been working really hard. You and Grebbeci need to kick your hubbies into gear! Mine has been better than I thought actually as he is traditional Italian and the wife does everything. I've still done the majority but he does help out a fair bit.
Amy - 24 working days - awesome! I'm down to 18 now!
Crafty / Amy - I have 2 staffies - a 1 yr old and a 3yr old. They have actually calmed down more than they did when they were puppies but when I finish up work going to concentrate on trying to teach them some more commands and really enforce it. They love being indoors with us, but are outside about 80% of the time at the moment. When bubs comes, they'll be outside all the time and we'll play it by ear. It would be so hard to give up pets when babies come along, but if it's in the best interest of the baby and / or dog then I do understand. We adore both our dogs to pieces but actually had a conversation last night and said we need to re-evaluate when bubs is here depending on how well they cope with the baby as they can be quite jealous of each other, we'll see how we go!
kmvw - how do you play music to your baby? Just you listening to it , or do you put earphones / headphones on your tummy? I listen to music all the time but have also been reading to baby most nights since about 16 weeks. I've gone through the whole Beatrix Potter series and nearly finished the whole Winnie the Pooh series now!
On the baby sling / carrier subject was talking to DH about it and we've decided we're not going to get one. Will just use the pram or carry the baby and if it turns out to be an issue then we'll get one after
We've decided to go all out and buy a Boori Sleigh Royale Cot and then the rest of the furniture we'll buy cheaper.
Doing painting next week - can't wait to start setting up the nursery
Had first class on Wednesday which was cool - they say to have hospital bag packed by 30 weeks so I'm going to get on to that in the next couple of weeks.
Myer have a 25% intimates and sleepwear at the moment and I'm in desperate need so I'm off to buy more maternity bras, bigger underwear and some pj's today or tomorrow
Sorry for the usual essay! Have a great day and weekend! Will for sure be on bub hub all day as work is so quiet so hopefully some of you will be bored at work too!
Boring is good Meshell!!! Bubs is doing exactly what you want which is great!
Does anyone have any recommendations for stretch mark creams? I have the Bio Oil at the moment but am not a big fan of the oil, I think I'd rather a moisturiser type that will work well?
I hadn't even thought about hospital bags and pj's etc til you girls mentioned it!
Burt's bees apricot oil is awesome! Love it, so nourishing and it smells great!
Congratulations Mrsopt cannot wait to get to 28 weeks, I've got 4+2 to go.
SL I play music via my iPhone, I just put the speaker on my skin. How do we know they actually like the music though, it might drive them nuts. I'm a little frightened to do it again as she did jump around like crazy! At least i know there certainly is nothing wrong with her hearing. Might do some research into it.
In regards to nappy bags, I'm going to buy a nice oversized hand bag
When are u supposed to get stretch marks?
I checked out nappy bags on the internet there were some nice OiOi and Vanchi ones. It also depends hows you want to use your nappy bag. I know that some people like to have a nappy bag that's just a nappy bag and then others want a nappy bag / slash handbag.
I just picked up the Oroton nappy bag yesterday as I went for a bag that didn't look like a nappy bag and want to use it as a handbag too. Also looks good for use post-nappy bag times!
