mummytobejuly2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 21:40:03

thanks zing. can I be changed from 11th to 5th please during next update? not changed on paper yet but every appointment is getting earlier. hoping he waits til july 2nd, would like him not to be the youngest in class in school

AuntieMaggie Wed 23-Apr-14 21:46:09

Thank you zing for new thread smile

plate please try to talk to midwife or gp tomorrow if you haven't seen a physio to get a referral - theres no magic cure for the pain but hopefully you can get some advice and reassurance.

I forgot to mention that twice this week I've woken up with a dried stain on my pj top so I think my nipple may be leaking but only on one side and at night hmm

MrsB2013 Wed 23-Apr-14 21:47:20

Ooohh nice new thread thanks Zing smile

The list is sooooo long!

A few more questions from me, I need advice from you mummies!!

I'm planning on breast feeding, and I'm sure I'll want to express if I can, is it worth buying something like this now or wait and see how it goes: www.mothercare.com/Philips-Avent-Complete-Natural-Starter-Set/346815,default,pd.html

Baby monitor, a few friends have recommended one like this with the sensor pad, what do you think? www.mothercare.com/Angelcare-Movement-and-Sound-Monitor-AC401/994539,default,pd.html

Cot bedding: What do I really need? Are bumpers safe or not? I've been looking at these "bed in a bag" type things www.mothercare.com/Mothercare-Patchwork-Garden-Bed-In-Bag/809421,default,pd.html

mummytobejuly2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 21:52:05

mrsb I got that pump with boots parent club vouchers (1/3 off avent pump or bottles) & it was on offer, ended up only costing me £12. got a microwave steriliser in tesco with clubcard vouchers. also Asda baby event is on at mo. we got 6 tommee tippee closer to nature bottles for £10 & a travel cot £20 in it

ZingWatermelon Wed 23-Apr-14 21:55:21

no need for bumpers in the beginning.
I do have them coz they pretty.

I'd wait with bottle feeding stuff, but I swear by Avent.
if on offer do get it though.

baby monitor - hmm, really depends.
I didn't have one till DS5. because we had a loft extension before he was born I just couldn't here anything when in kitchen, two floors difference.
but when it was just downstairs and upstairs I couldn't get away from sound of crying so there was no need for it.
so wait till baby is born, if you then still feel the need for it then buy it.

hth

brew hot choc and cake time!

(I'll do more updating tomorrow.)

ismarah Wed 23-Apr-14 21:56:32

Where's a good place to buy knickers? Unlike this shiny new roomy thread (Thanks Zing), mine need upgrading. I got a set of three mat wear ones ages ago from H&M but they seem to have stopped doing them. So far I've made do with those and old, fat pants but they're starting to squish a bit...

^ The most I've discussed my pants in semi-public. I felt the need to clarify. Sigh.

Oh, and NCT classes for us next weekend. Please, no whale music, I feel big enough as it is. And I sing, sometimes. #whale

ZingWatermelon Wed 23-Apr-14 21:57:25

and if you want baby monitor to reassure you then get it.

I was thinking from purely practical POW

NancyinCali Wed 23-Apr-14 22:39:53

Blimey new thread, thanks Zing! Hi everyone smile DD is napping and I should be cleaning as my best friend and her family are arriving this evening to stay for 2 weeks (beyond excited to see them, been almost a year).

GTT test was fine the other day, felt a bit faint half way through but put my feet up and drank water and was okay. Hopefully I won't have to wait long for the results, my lab & midwife are usually pretty fast.

ismarah I was going to say H&M as that's where I got the last lot from. I also had some from Mothercare when I was pg with DD.

MrsB Bottles: I have some tommee tippee (sp?) from DD that I'll probably get new teats for and my pump that I need to get new parts for. But I didn't have anything when DD was born and to be honest hardly used it when she arrived but I think with juggling two kids I'm more likely to use bottles.
Monitor: I have a motorola video monitor that I can add a second camera too so I can watch both DCs. I did have the Angelcare one for DD but never quite got around to sorting the pressure pad thing out as I would have had to cut a hole in the side of our bassinet to put the cord through!
Bumpers: didn't use them and don't plan to this time either. I'm cleaning averse so I thought I'd avoid anything extra that could get poo/puke on that I'd have to wash!

mummytobejuly2014 Wed 23-Apr-14 23:00:46

argh bedtime as I start work at 6am & ive a another bleed sad
last one was 6/7wks ago. no one can offer any reason as to why it keeps happening. half afraid to go to sleep now. little man thrashing about now I've lay down on my right side.half hoping he thrashes about til I can speak with midwife in morn for reassurance

ItsAlwaysBetterOnHoliday Wed 23-Apr-14 23:33:58

New thread! Thanks Zing.

I'm still sort of denial about this whole third trimester thing. I can't really be that pregnant, can I?

Mummy to be - hope you're OK. Can you contact the midwife out of hours if you're worried?

ZingWatermelon Wed 23-Apr-14 23:46:07

you are all welcomesmile

mummy
those things are mysterious, some people have bleeds but have healthy babies anyway, keep that in mind, ok?

it is scary of course and I'm sorry you are worried, but baby moving about has got to be a good sign!
can you call MW/triage at your hospital?
even if you can't sleep, lie down and rest.

big hugs

lemonpoppyseed Thu 24-Apr-14 02:56:16

Thanks, Zing. Marking my place!

Mummy, hope you manage to get some sleep. Easier said than done when you're worried though, I know...

icklekid Thu 24-Apr-14 03:13:47

Mrsb I'm not going for cot bumpers- do look nice but not sure about risk/can't see point... I think we will get some bottles/steriliser but will waut until see on offer- aldi have an event on? Eveb though planning on breastfeeding- you never know! Also I think an angelcare monitor would make me more paranoid- we've just got a normal one which is also a night light!

ismarah I would imagine m&s would do maternity pants? Will let you know how nct goes tomorrow. ..I have fingers crossed for no whale songs!

mummy sorry that you're still bleeding- will they offer you another scan to reassure? Thinking of you!

So can everyone just tell me I'm being ridiculous- yesterday 29 weeks midwife measured bump and gone from just above 50th percentile in growth to 90th!!! She said not to worry- I know bump had grown lots in last 2weeks so hoping it will even itself out...also better than too small but arghh I don't want a giant baby!!!
