I was luckily gifted a secondhand ergo and hugabub from my sister with my DD, and now have the newborn insert for the ergo. I'm thinking I'll use a carrier a lot as this time I will also have a toddler. Unfortunately, I don't think the weather in summer is very favourable to those carriers so I'm also looking into an airy sling. Can't remember the name of it though.
@SleepyDude - you can hire a capsule from Kidsafe if you aren't wanting to buy one. I'm not sure about in Perth but my sister is in Melbourne and their local council hired out capsules.
I didn't go with a capsule last time and will forgo it this time too. My first bub grew at an exponential rate and I wouldn't have been able to lift her and a carrier for more than 8 weeks or so. I was lucky though in that she transferred okay.
@Bellydance I'm not hiring a tenns machine but I have heard they are good during labour. Are you considering it or definitely going ahead?
@butterfli sounds exciting to have a date set! Not so good about the GD, and over Christmas too.
AFM - two weeks until EDD (my ticker appears to be bad at maths)! It sounds so close but I don't feel like this baby is coming out soon. I had no warning last time so I don't know why I am expecting to be able to tell when this baby will arrive. Quite tired every day now and finding it harder to get back to sleep at night when I get up to go to the toilet.
Happy weekend everyone!!!
