    Disney I just thought you should know that after we BDed today I sang to the swimmers. I was sitting there, butt popped up on a pillow, thinking, "Oh, nah, don't be ridiculous." And then I just thought, "Hey, what the heck!" And made up a little baby melody. I tapped along on my stomach too. HAHA! Lucky DP was in the shower or he would have thought I was mad (actually he is equally mad and would probably have joined in).

    Thanks for your great advice JessyJ, I was thinking of going second hand with everything that you can that is safe (i.e. not carseats). Good to have confirmation that you can do it! I checked for cots on eBay earlier and there are some beautiful old wooden ones that were like $35. Amazing.

    Funchu I'm really really excited to hear that you can afford to take the risk with your new job! That's exciting. So you can keep TTC and see what happens! Yay!!

    beccaboobang none of my friends have babies either so that's also another source. If you're being bugged to supply the grandkids that's a good sign they'll get spoilt!

    Thanks for the advice munchkin.. I didn't know about that. If I manage to get UTD sometime this millennium I will keep an eye out, I'm sure there are expos that come to Melb.
    Hahaha baby song!!! That's hilarious!.... I may just try it lol. What harm can it do?

    There's a baby and toddler expo that come through Melbourne each year... I don't know what the exact name is... That's where we went...

    Also thought of another place to buy things...discount baby warehouse... Based in Sydney I think. Sell a lot of discounted stuff... Coz it might have a mark or scratch or something.

    We got a cot for like $500 cheaper... And only $50 delivery... And the mark on it we can hardly see it....

    And the customer service (via email especially) was second to none... Very helpful with my question after question... Took photos for me etc... Highly recommend!!! 😊

    Ha ha! Forgot to say Disney that dh and I were singing "when I was a sperm I had a lot to learn" the other night after some bding Not exactly a song for cheering on the spermies, but maybe it could be a visualisation method for my egg and dh's dudes??!!

    I'm a bit slow on the convo, but basically you need a pram, car seat, cot and mattress, linen, wraps, nappies and clothes... Everything else you can improvise or aren't actually nessicary!

    Baby bath... Use the laundry tub. Saves having to cart water and your back bending. Use the machine to put the towel on. We paid $60 for what I thought was an amazing baby bath by fisher price with a hammock and toys.... useless! Absolutely useless!

    Capsule...you can hire, or car seats will rear face up to a certain age. The one ds had, would have lasted him till 14mnths rear facing! (we only got it then as a replacement from an accident)

    Basinette....great and useful but bub can use a cot from day one.

    Clothes...onesies! Easy, comfortable and cheap. We spent heaps of money on new clothes for ds when I was pregnant, he didn't even wear some.

    Nappies...we use disposable (yeah, I know...) it costs us 30 a fortnight for huggies. Ds is partially toilet training so we are not going through as many...

    I tried breast feeding, I persevered for 6 months, paid 300 for a good pump (I didn't know id need it till after ds was born..I just thought everyone could bf, and pumping was only if you wanted to give ebm...wasnt I wrong!)
    We ended up having to purchased bottles, and a steamer(you can just boil them, or some places say don't worry about steralising) formula was about 25 a week for the one we used...there was cheaper options.

    Dummys....I didn't want to but after days 1 and 2 constantly at the breast and having cracked, grazed and bleeding bbs...it was needed!

    We also had a rocker, and I had a baby sling (mini monkey) I found it useless for us! Definately getting an ergo for #2.

    Baby monitor.. I spent heaps on an angelcare movement and sound one... I'm replacing it when utd again. Sooo staticy, and both power supplies have blown and I've had to get them replaced! Not bad for only 2yrs use

    We also have a portacot, but only used a couple of times

    You ladies are quite convincing!!
    Funchu, I really really appreciated your view on things! Helped to put it all into perspective.

    Our pastor gave a sermon on contentment today and I think this sealed the deal for DH and I. We are choosing to be content with what we have right now, take a leap of faith and start trying for a baby. YAY!

    Thanks for putting up with my indecisiveness up until now! Lets hope nothing changes again. Haha.

    *excited*

    Yay Nomie!!!

    That's so exciting.

    We have a list of about $60,000 worth of stuff to do around the house, but none of it is essential - a baby is essential (at least that's how we feel). Ours will be the first grandchild on both sides too, so hopefully we'll get helped out with the baby stuff. Otherwise, I'm sure we'll make do without the fancy nursery... although I do have my heart set on about $7000 worth of awesome nursery furniture & decorations. hmmm... I have expensive tastes

    I started collecting baby things here & there when I found it for a decent price so that i don't have to buy everything once I got pregnant. Although now I honestly don't think it's going to happen at all.

    So I'll just have to be content with 2
