Jay- I actually thought after I posted that comment to you that you'd probably already have bottles covered. I almost went for a microwave one but only because it was cheaper and I thought an electric might be a waste of money, if I'm able to breast feed and only express/bottle feed occasionally, I just got the electric one because the pack was on sale so the price wasn't too much in the end. I did read about using the bottles within 24hrs of sterilising. Not sure if it would work to just wash them after use and then sterilise just before the next use?
Hope- your photos are beautiful, can't wait to see the ones from later in pregnancy. I was thinking of waiting until bub was born before getting a pump so I could see if I needed one first but I found a closer to nature manual pump for $20 so couldn't go past it. I'm only planning to bottle feed very occasionally so hoping a manual one will be enough. I'm feeling a bit more organised now but it's like there's a never ending list! My mum kept some of mine and my sis's baby clothes so I'm going out there soon to have a look since now I'll be able to use them!
Spidery- glad your scan went well! It's so cute seeing them wriggling around so much! The sonographer did a close up of the front of her face just as she let out a big yawn, it was amazing to see. Feeling movements is just the best feeling, isn't it? I have heard of quite a few ladies who have low lying placentas and they correct themselves before the end of the pregnancy, I really hope this is the case for you and Hope. What date do you get the full report? I have to call my obs this week, the sonographer said a lot of positive things as she was scanning so hopefully that means no nasty surprises!
Amps- lovely bump shot! Your belly looks very tidy, don't know if that's the right word but you look like you haven't blown our in other areas and just have a nice belly!
Thanks to everyone else for the congrats! Berra, where are you, I want to know what you're having too!!
