    Yes @mish239 they do. Be prepared and shop around. Baby bunting will also price match. When we bought our pram they matched thinkpram.com.au which had the bundle for the city select cheaper.

    I'll have a week of study leave then three weeks of annual leave before my actually mat leave starts so I'll end up having 13 mths off.

    @mish239 I agree definitely shop around and don't pay full price for anything! I am the ultimate bargain hunter lol so always shop the sales. I just got a convertible booster for DS at a great price after comparing online. We will use it as a second seat until Bub comes.

    I think I will try and work until 38 weeks. Last time I had planned 38 but we were getting a new kitchen so ended up stopping at 37 weeks. That 3 weeks was lovely especially because I have a very busy job on my feet all day. This time will be easier only part time. I would love to have longer off but I need it on the other side as work only gives us 8 weeks paid leave.

    My sis had her first bub at 36 weeks, so she was very thankful she got a couple of weeks beforehand to sort out baby stuff! I guess it depends on how organised you are leading up to the due date. For me the time off before was a great chance to rest, cook up meals for the freezer and get all those last little bits sorted without having to rush or only do things on weekends. I'd like at least a couple of weeks to do that again, so taking 4 weeks will give me some buffer time.

    I went back to work when DD was 4 months. I had planned to go back when she was 5 months but I scored a new job much closer to home when I was on maternity leave so ended up earlier than expected. This time I'm using 4 weeks annual leave for pre-birth, then I get 12 weeks from my employer and the 18 weeks PPL (any changes won't impact on people already pregnant). So Squeak will be around 7 months when I go back, which in comparison to last time seems like a luxury to me!

    @mish239 definitely shop around the various baby places. We ended up getting some great bargains at Babies R Us when they had a sale. EOFY sales are usually a great time to get stuff. Our babies will be here by then, but I'd also recommend having a look for extra things you might be wanting around the end of the year.

    Cooking freezer dinners is an absolute must. None of my friends believed me and thought they would be ok to cook each night. Wrong! Unless you have a super awesome mum or MIL bringing food every night, freezer meals are necessary.
    I was stuck in hospital for 7 nights and DH would have eaten fast food the whole time without these meals in the freezer!
    No need to cook separate meals just double what you are cooking for the weeks beforehand and freezer half. Means you don't have to allocate precious time cooking up extra meals and less dishes as you would have those dishes anyway.

    @mish239 being a perthie The Baby Expo is on in early August so if you miss the EOFY sales alot of the retailers will put on specials at the time of the expo as well. We got quiet a bit cheaper at expo just by shopping around and playing off exhibitors against its other haha

    Is anyone else having a notable decrease in their appetite? I'm hardly ever feeling hungry lately, except for a slightly sick feeling when it's been a while since I last ate. Still eating regularly because I know I need to but I'm finding almost zero interest or satisfaction in food at the moment. I don't remember feeling this way in my first pregnancy, but every pregnancy is different so I'm told.

    Not me @bubbletrouble! Im all about the food, all of the time sadly.

    Must be getting your nutritional value from the little you are eating to not be craving anything 🏻 will be great to keep to your weight goal.
