Chulita how are we progressing with the paypal sort out?
Alice's beautiful card for Belle has just arrived with me now (it made both me - and my husband - sob!)...
I'm now in a position to order the rose and pot whenever the rest of the stuff is sorted.
Have we thought about which charity the remainder will go to? How do we want to work this (a vote? ask Caz?)...
And shall I try and set up a page with the picture of the card / rose / pot that I can link to?
marking my place on new thread.
Still haven't added to the rose fund can someone link for me?
Can't wait to hear cherry's news properly!
Yey, congrats cherry knew it was this the other day.
pample I rang earlier but had to deal with DD so cut it short, I'm going to hassle them today hopefully and get the name changed. I'll let you know when it's sorted!
gya if you want to contribute it's on a Paypal account, email to donate to is firstname.lastname@example.org
Chulita - thanks for link to abdominal binder, this looks far cheaper than the belly bandit one, def going to order one of these - anything that can possibly help, right?? And great to be on the new thread - starting to seem like the end is in sight (well 7 or 8 weeks away!)
Two other questions to better prepared and more experienced ladies out there!
Femé Pads - To buy or not to buy? The pads themselves plus gauze sleeves are about £20 all in I think - absolute must or waste of cash??
Kari Me baby sling? I quite like the idea of being able to use my hands while holding the baby, even just to read a book, have something to eat, work on laptop, possible breastfeed and a friend recommended the Kari Me sling to me. It looks kind of complicated tho! Seem to be about £18 on ebay - good buy or too fussy to get much use out of??
Now we've got most of main bits and pieces like moses basket, changing table, cot and car seat all bought trying to make sure we don't throw money away on useless crap that sounds like a good idea but will never get used! No storage space for starters
Thanks a million!!
Many congrats to Cherry on her little boy! I can't believe we're popping already ....
We've decided not to move, but in means we'll be in our one bedroom flat for another year, but a very large one bedroom flat. It takes away so much stress and now I can just focus on getting this place spick and span for the baby. Still a bit sad not to be able to decorate a nursery.
London is still boiling hot and I haven't slept in a week -- please tell me it will be cold and rainy this weekend (I never thought I'd wish for that)!
just marking my spot on the new thread
re: Caz fund I think it would be nice if she is able to choose which charity she would like the money to go to, as like someone said she might want to donate to the hospital...or something closer to home.. what do you think?
does anyone elses baby mainly kick on one side? my little one is a right hand side kicker..
My baby kicks on the right side too! Bump looks all lopsided too when he does it!!!
Yay! A new thread! Thanks chulita
cherry!!!!!! Congratulations!!!! Get yourself on here and tell all (because obviously you don't have anything more important to do, lol!)
elusive I'm going to get super stern with you in a minute if you don't finish packing those bags.
I'm intrigued by these abdominal binders - do they really work?
coffeelady I feel your pain - consultants are a massive pain in the ass as far as I'm concerned.
Well, I now have the company of a stinking cold Not happy. Didn't get much sleep last night as our garden is right beside the railway line and they've been doing work for the past week now. Poor dh is shattered too. Then to make it worse, ds wet the bed last night and got really upset. He's been dry at night for over a year now, but since going into his bunkbeds has wet the bed a couple of times poor little thing gets really upset.
Getting loads of braxton hicks today and starting to get the 'basketball between the legs' feeling. Guessing baby has dropped a little. Just wish it wasn't quite so hot and I had a bit more energy to play with ds today. I just want to sleep...
aussie hope you get finished work today and manage to chill out for a bit before your baby arrives. You poor thing, you must be so stresed out. I hope your work are super appreciative of everything you're a doing [stern look]
Just marking my spot and also saying that I will be sending funds later today for Caz. I think we should let her decide where the surplus money goes to in terms of charity personally.
O.M.G!!! Huge congrats Cherry can't wait to hear all about it - I knew this was "it" for you on Wednesday when you posted!
Last day at work for me - hopefully will get 3 or 4 weeks off before baby arrives, but who knows? DH is away and not back until Tuesday, so I've drafted in my sister to sleep at mine until he's back - just in case you understand...
Got a brill BT Digital monitor and Bumbo from work, some vouchers for beauty treatments and a bottle of Champers which I am v. much looking forward to opening...
Hugs to all x
The arrival of Cherry's LO has focused my mind a bit, must work on getting a hospital bag together.
Like quite a few others have said, I think if Caz can choose the charity, that would be best.
mrsZac for the last week I have had a right side kicker on my hands too, although it is still an improvement on last week when I thought maybe there was some capoeira practice going on.
OK it looks like the consensus (so far anyway) is to let Caz choose.
Unless I hear any objections I'm going to ask Caz; it would be nice if it went to somewhere she felt a personal connection with.
I also think it would be nice for Caz to decide where the remaining money goes.
mrsZac, my boy kicks incessantly, but mainly on the left side. Don't think there is much room for him anymore.
Went to supermarket today, but started having BH on the walk round, , it was not that easy to walk at the same time. Plus I still feel like I'm saddle sore. What is that all about???
Hope everyone has a nice evening
I also keep thinking I have ages but as all of my DCs have been early, I should really start thinking about packing.
Can't wait to hear about her little boy!
I get kicks all over but I have a definite bottom/back that rises up on my right hand side several times a day! really firm and when I stroke it the rest of him wriggles like he really likes it I feel more hiccups (just above pubic bone) and little punches and rummaging around than I do kicks. Get quite a lot of nudges higher up which might be kicks I suppose.
Just had a house viewing and the woman absolutely loves the house and wants to come back with her daughter next week so fingers crossed. Also got a 2nd viewing tomorrow. While DH did viewing I went to Mothercare and got some bargains, mainly an Avent manual breast pump half price at £14.99. They have a good sale on at the moment.
Oh, and I'm totally addicted to ice cubes right now
Also marking my spot. Blueberries, PMSL at the basketball between the legs sensation. That's exactly how I've been feeling for the last couple of day. Still, at least it means that my ribs are no longer in agony. Every cloud has a silver lining .
Just marking my spot.
Many congratulations cherry can't wait to hear about baby boy.
Am getting very scared now!
OMG - Things are certainly getting close now. I've spent the evening sorting and washing baby clothes and doing a check-list of everything needed for the hospital bag....
It really is getting quite exciting!
The bump seems to have grown during the day and is just SO heavy, finding it so difficult to get comfortable, my whole body aches.
NHS antenatal session tomorrow - when I got the letter it seemed so far away!
Here's hoping it's a cooler weekend!
It's meant to only be 25 degrees in London over the weekend - sounds like bliss compared to the 29/30 we've been having!
Looking forward to an update from cherry soon.
I am hoping it cools down to, I have had no sleep for ages now.
I started on Raspberry Leaf capsules today, I used raspberry leaf tea with dd, not sure it did much but as I didn't really like it, maybe I didn't drink enough.
I am off to bed now as I have a busy day at work tomorrow and both shops are short staffed so it will be a long stressful day with no Doctor Who at the end of it.
On sunday we are going strawberry picking and then on to a local forest to look for mini beasts as DD loves creepy crawlies! after that I am thinking it may be a pub lunch.
I will catch up tomorrow night after I have packed my hospital bag
Just wanted to mark my spot on the new thread.
I hope its not too late, but i have just donated for Caz.
I really need to get more organised, we still need to buy some big items like a pushchair, so the thought of packing hospital bags sounds scary!!!
(internet was very ropey last night)
Why has DD decided she wants to be potty trained 5 1/2 weeks before the baby arrives?
