    Rtkirk I think its pretty normal not wanting to go out in the very early stages. It's up to you when you feel fit and ready. The first time around I took full six weeks to recover and only went to shops for essentials and didnt take bubs as I cld barely walk myself. Besides for two weeks after birth we were still trying to establish bf and I ended up having a bad fever with dried up milk ( until the drs stopped me from bf). Also my paed, my mum and my grandma did mention that newborns are quite vulnerable and have low immune system so keeping them away from populated areas (less germy env) giving the bubs a chance to get a bit stronger was a good way to go. But I did like to take bubs out in the backyard or porch for some sunshine ! However if I was stronger I wld be tempted to pack a nappy bag and head off to the mall, straight to Babyswear!! But I think nice strolls to park would be more relaxing and enjoyable without having to worry about someone coughing too close to the baby!


    Thanks Ngaiz I must have stumbled across an old menu card for Mater Mothers somewhere on the thread!

    Thanks for the tips ladies. I have those things packed.

    Hoping I can sleep tonight, knowing we meet our little boy tomorrow morning.

    I actually has a little but of bleeding this morning, but it wasn't much and has stopped and I could still feel movement and had no pain. So OB said only come in if you have no movement. I surprised myself was very calm.

    I so can't believe DH and I will be parents tomorrow. It feels so surreal after waiting so long. X

    JJ- I'm so glad you had a good experience at st v. I'm looking forward to their menu as I've heard from others it's really nice as well. have you been able to access their lactation centre? I was impressed to hear we can go back and get advice after our bubs is born. I think I'll be needing it as it doesn't seem like a walk in the park.

    JB- I really hope you get as far along to term as you can. Seems like your OB is doing all the right things especially picking up the cervix was shortening. I think with my friend they were too lenient letting her stay home on bedrest. She ended up in hospital and within a week or so had her babies at 25 weeks. Thankfully they are home and thriving now.

    Ann- thanks for the tip about waxing. I've developed a lot of hair on my belly during pregnancy so rather not shave.


    ABH- good luck with the csection tomorrow x

    Catlover- your nursery looks great. Such a beautiful cot!

    AFM- so far I've almost finished packing my baby bag and mine is not at all finished. It's hard to pack clothes you still want to wear. My lovely friend brought over some baby stuff to give us like a medela swing pump and hand pump, baby bjorn, breastfeeding cape, heaps of books etc etc Now we need to find space for it. Our cot is being delivered on Friday so that will be DH's job to put together on the weekend. I'll post some pics when it's almost ready.

    I'm a bit annoyed at baby bunting. We put our cradle on layby mid march and they told me it was in stock. Now we want to get it out and it not in stock!!! I'm waiting for them to get back to me on estimated delivery time. I have 6 weeks left!! If it's not ready in time I might need to borrow my SIL's. Grrr

    All the best ABH, can't
    Wait to hear of the safe arrival of your little one.

    Woke up as sick as a dog today and ended up falling asleep on the couch for the WHOLE day. Bless DH, he's been great. When I woke up I noticed my left breast was inflamed so headed to the dr. Turns out I have mastitis, it's awful. I've been having hot showers, using a wheat bag and pumping. Any other ideas would be much appreciated.

    Good luck ABH!!! How exciting to know your family begins tomorrow. All the best for a smooth c-section. Can't wait to hear all about it.

    Ngaiz- ouch that sucks! I was on the cusp of getting it. Had the fever and flu symptoms but managed to only have a blocked duct. You poor thing. Drink lots of water and rest up. Did you get out in antibiotics?

    Good luck for tomorrow ABH! Looking forward to your news.

    Looks lovely catlover... We haven't put anything together yet! Bits of cot all over the house and still have to remove all the furniture from the spare room- sigh!

    I'm so impressed with all the brave new and breastfeeding mummas. I'm quite nervous about keeping it together but you are all doing so well! My best friend is still struggling with BF at 2 months and I don't think enough people recognize how truly difficult everything really is with a new bubba. I feel truly lucky to have all your perspectives and support on this journey! I have no idea how women coped in the day when you didn't talk about these things!!!

    Ngaiz- sounds horrible!!! I don't know how this works but there is a local Facebook page for mums that I follow and someone on that had mastitis- everyone suggested to see a chiropractor. I have no idea what is involved but they all said it instantly fixed the pain... It wouldn't have been my first thought but I'm really curious now and going to do some googling

    I've also been missing in action. This baby caring business can be all consuming. I don't know where the day goes and manage to get very little done.my little one has also had a few unsettled days. On Monday she seemed to cry and wanted to feed continuously, all day and night. Today she wouldn't settle down and was mostly awake from 10.30 am to nearly 5pm. She was overtired and I should have put her down earlier but as I had visitors it was hard. Anyway I am learning as I go along. For sanitys sake I need to stick to the routine.
    ABH good luck for tomorrow. Hope you can have a good experience as possible going through a c section.
    Ann I was going to ask you about the baby wipe warmers. I think I need to get them. Already bubs hates being undressed to have her nappy changed and then to have to wipe her with those cold wipes must just feel awful. Poor little thing.
    Rtkirk I know what you mean about going out. It's a big production when you have a baby. We have ventured out a few times now and we have learnt not to do to much as she starts getting restless. When I've gone out with the pram it's been easier as she has just slept the whole time. But taking her in and out of the car, to and from places has been harder. I'm finding I need to do something every day or at least see someone every day. I had 2 days in a row where I didn't leave the house or have anyone visit and I didn't like it at all.
