i just got a definite kick - phewf!!
Nicsta yes I'm sure everything is fine - my little one is still having little movements so I'm happy! Glad you've had some kicks too they must have known we were talking about them ; )
On a totally non baby related matter ladies - my washing machine blew up on Saturday and so we need to buy a new one. Instead of buying one that will 'get us through' we need to get a good one that will last as I see lots more washing happening when bubs is here
Now I know that front loaders are supposed to be better (that's what we had) but I would much prefer to get a top loader and am being very stubborn about it lol! Can anyone recommend any great top loaders??
Thank you xxx
Thanks for info on the washing machine - my SIL has a simpson top loader which she loves. I'm thinking at early stages Simpson, LG or Westinghouse
I hate my front loader cause its so hard to get clothes in when you are pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!
get a top loader for sure.. also better for cloth nappies if you choose to use them. Wish i got one!
i haven't had many kicks over the weekend either. I am soooo worried but i know my placenta is in the front. i need to stop worrying so much, but its so hard not to worry!
I called the midwives on sat morning cause I had not felt him move much since the small bleed I had last Wednesday night. While I was on the waiting room I felt him but thought since I was already there I might as well see them just to make sure. Midwife checked his heart rate which was great to hear but she also got the on call doc to see me ( cause of the bleed). He did a quick u/s where we saw a healthy and active Bubba.
I have been feeling definite movements for the last month so who knows why we sometimes don't feel them. I hope all of you start feeling some moves to put your minds at ease but would definitely suggest a quick call to your gp or midwife even if they can let you hear the heart beat cause it really does help you to relax.
We bought a new washing machine a couple of months ago. Can't remember the brand but its a top loader and is metal not plastic ( didn't see many that were metal).

Im so glad i have all your ladies makes me feel so much more at ease!!
I will call my midwife/OB this morning when i get a break at work just to let her know my concerns...id rather be safe than sorry.
I tried to explain it to DH as he isnt the one who feels her and has to worry about keeping a track. He is much more easy going than me, so even if he was the one who was carrying i am sure he would be much more calm...dam calm nature i hope this little one has a nice balance of both our natures as that would be a perfect combo!
SL i also was against front loader, but our new house gave us no choice with the way the laundry was designed. I also cant remember the brand, maybe westinghouse, but maybe not....anyway it has quick wash settings and also the ability to add things without water going everywhere. I hope your find something....
SL- We used to have a 10.5kg simpson top loader and it was great. (until DH put our king size doona in it and broke it). Whatever you get, make sure it has dials or mechanical push buttons, the ones with the electronic pushbuttons suck. We have a front loader now and I love it. Also love that I can put it under the bench, which is a huge bonus when your bathroom, toilet and laundry are all in the one room and you are planning on using cloth nappies.
Glad everyones bubs have started wiggling again. They certainly do have quiet days where they sort of just float about. Don't they know that we are monitoring their movements?
