Salgan - yeah nearly all of the Mums in our play group only went back 2 or 3 days once the babies turned 1.have you put your name down for childcare? A friend of mine did when she was 6 weeks pregnant and didn't get in until her son was 1!

Salgan - I will probably start buying things a little earlier than that maybe after the 18-20 week scan. Like the others said I dont wanna be without certain things when the time comes and if bub decides to come early.
Kseds - I'm 11 weeks today and I can't wait to find out the gender, it's a suprise either way really
Yay 11 weeks today although going a little insane waitin for scan on 9th feb, seems so long away.

Salgan - it's probably a really good idea to buy thing when they are on sale. Target has their baby bumper sale on now. We bought the bassinet on sale for half price and got the cot for half price too from Babies r us. It's silly to pay full price if you don't need it before it goes on Sale. I wouldn't worry about buying too much - just make sure you have a look around so that you can decide what to get rather than buying something and then not being happy with it. But make sure you keep all your receipts. I had a box with all baby related receipts and warranty's. It was really good when I found out I was having a girl, only to be told 2 days later it was a boy.
Kseds - I don't want to find out this time. My Mum & DH really do, but seeing it's my body - I get to make the decisions! I'm not sure if I will be able to stay strong in finding out, but I'll try. My friend didn't find out because her DH said "you don't get many surprises in life" and I think that's really true. It would be exciting to get a surprise after all the hard work of labour... Like I said, I'll see how long I last!

I'm of the thinking that nothing we do / say or buy is going to jinx things - so shop away I reckon!!
Gem - I hope the 3 weeks goes by quickly.

Thanks ladies! That is a really good idea about buying things at sales. I should really start looking. I think I will get serious after our 18-20 week scan. I do not want to be without a pram because I left it to the last minute.
I am open to the idea of going back to work 2-3 days after 6 months but I guess I don't know how I will feel about it until I have the baby. I work in construction with a bunch of men and don't know how flexible they will be with a mother so I might look for some contract work. At the moment my boss doesn't seem to understand that my ob appointments are important and tries to make me feel guilty when I take time off. He also told me they should be annual leave.
Mum2Angus - I didn't even think about childcare. I can't believe people book that far in advance!!! My work owns a childcare centre so I might get them to put my name down as soon as I put in my maternity leave.

I am 14 wks and we still can't decide if we will find out the sex. I have a 8 yr old and 10 yr old stepkids and they are super keen to find out - I think it will come down to how strong we all are on the day - so I'm thinking we will end up finding out!!!
Would someone please mind adding me on to the role call? Due 22nd July :-) Thank you!!
38 degrees for us here in WA today - we have the next week of 39 and 40 and even a 42 chucked in there!! Blah...

Salgan - yeah you need to put your name down as soon as possible, especially if it's the centre owned by your work. All the employees will want to send their kids there and make sure you ring up every few months or they sometimes take your name off.

Samarasmum - I'm so gutted for you lovely - such sad news - enjoy your break of being able to eat & drink what you like, have a few saunas & we'll see you back soon on the BFP list.....
Bebehvala - I've been monitoring my BG since I started back in the pred & progest & knew my control was not good. As soon as I saw my OB he put me back on insulin @ night, then my endocrinologist put me back on insulin during the day - now I just have to remember to take it!
We didn't start buying until late in preg last time, and def not until after our morphology scan. This time I think I need to be more organised as I'll be less mobile earlier on.
We found out the sex with DD & I will find out again this time. I have no need for surprises with two coming & need to plan ahead a bit.
we had our NT scan yesterday & everything looks great. Both Bubs scanning sl bigger than due date (eek), good HBs and my risk of downs is as low as possible based on the scan only. As there are twins we can't use bloods, and given my age we started off with a high risk.
So I guess we start telling people now - feels a bit weird after being secretive about it for so long. 13 weeks tomorrow - now if only that glorious period of feeling great of 2nd trimester would kick in.... Actually I'd just take no more vomiting :-))))
