We're the same Wish. Off to Perth for the big family Christmas (I am from Perth originally) so that pretty much rules out any hope of a nice holiday before then.
Plus I get totally crappy maternity pay from work (ie nothing, $0, nil) so am trying to stock pile my annual leave to use as a boost through mat leave. Given the Xmas leave I should hopefully have 4 weeks AL owing by the time I go on mat leave which will be nice.
We did take DS to Fiji when he was 6 mths old and it was amazing!! Fiji and kids just goes together perfectly! Would love to go back.

I have also had cramps and a stretching feeling so I rang my nurse who said its very common.
Glad the wedding went well Wish.

I have been getting some cramps etc but I remember this all happening when I was pregnant with ds. Just have to tell myself to relax (not easy with a 1 yr old lol)
This Thursday can not come soon enough. We have our scan and it feels like forever away. We are also booked in to see the OB two weeks after that.
How is everyone going with being tired? I am absolutely exhausted, especially around 3pm. I don't remember being this tired last time or maybe it's just worse with a little one to run after. Luckily no morning sickness really, I just have to remember to eat small amounts often and it keeps it away
Hope your all doing well

Hahaha you're funny Lotsa when you said its a bit of a drive and out of the city and all i was thinking it must be on the very outskirts of Sydney!! We're in the east and have family around there so it doesn't feel as though its too far for us....oh, and little known fact - the best hamburger joint in sydney (paul's) is in sylvania. Thanks for passing on the website.

A baby moon is the best. We went to Hawaii when I was pregnant with our son. It's so nice to have the break and just relax. I find it good early on to. Especially before 12 weeks as it takes you away for a bit so you can avoid pregnancy questions for the whole time you're away!
If say do it ladies if your budget permits. Even a little trip somewhere close to home would be good. Especially if its your first baby. Nothing will ever be the same again so nice to have a trip away with just your partner one last time.

Cappy, we're staying at the Fiji spa & resort managed by the Hilton. It's probably right by where you're staying. Mine will be a honeymoon and baby moon in one! Haha!
Orchids, yeah looking back I made it sound like it was in the hunter or something, haha! My friend said it was a lovely environment and the best thing she did. I think any strategies to deal with the anxiety of the birth will be so helpful. It's my first birth too so overcoming fear/unknown will probably be big for me.
My Sydney hen's was today. (I had one in Adelaide earlier as that's where I'm from)
Had only one friend said "you're not drinking?! But it's your hen's!!) I made up some lies and she ended up buying me a mock tail. Had a brilliant lunch! Noone really drank to much and it was fine. A few friends can back to mine and we watched some Girly DVDs. They got magic mike (the closest thing I'd get to a stripper...I thought it was clever) and my big fat Greek wedding. Not as crazy as my younger years but a perfect afternoon at the moment.
Tiredness is getting to me so lying on the couch was bliss!

Lotsa we walked down to the Hilton yesterday. It looks really nice so I think you've made a great choice there. The pools are huge. They have a really big adults only pool and looked like they were doing some really fun activities in the kids section.
I think when we come back next time we might try there.
Well done on the hens sounds like you may have got away with it.
Bedlover our lives are so intertwined!

Fiji sounds fantastic! Dd would love it and has been asking to go lately cos she wants her hair braided :-)
We plan on doing a calmbirth course too! Can't wait!
Had my 6 mth old nephew for the night last night, and to say he's a terrible sleeper is an understatement. Lots of napping today! He's so adorable though so I forgive him. Think I overdid it through dragging the portacot around cos I had some more dark drown spotting this morning. No more heavy lifting for me!
