Hope all is well with JJ and hwaterhouse. I was induced and the breaking of the waters felt like an uncomfortable paps smear. Not pleasant but not painful. And I am a big sook about pain but you will amaze yourself trust me. I know it's über corny but when you see your bubs it is so worth it. Good luck ladies.
For me the best thing i have used for bubs are the old fashioned cloth nappies that I use as spit rags, to line the cot so I don't have to change the sheets/ mattress protector, on the change table, privacy for bf and a million other uses. $16 bucks for 12 at big w. Cheaper than buying lots of sheets for bubs bassinet. And saved me being peed on twice!
Berra sorry to hear you are in pain. Sounds like the right decision to go on mat leave a little early. Gives you time to rest before the big arrival.
Ann loved your idea about your DHs pressie. Please let us know his reaction. I'm sure he will love it.
Jay awesome pergola and spa. The winters here do get pretty chilly so that will be amazing in July.
Found out I have a pretty severe case of mastitis. I thought I was getting a bad flu but no. Discovered red splotches on my boobs and soooo painful lumps and went to dr who confirmed it. Yeah it's no fun. At least bubs is measuring over his birth weight today at 3 weeks old. That's positive.
