Hi hotmama, I tried starting a thread a couple of weeks ago about the baby show @ the NEC, and hardly anyone seemed interested
Still, I am going! I am dragging along my other half, sister inlaw and her man...hehe, we are going on Friday too.
I went last year when I was pg with ds(now 9months old) and this time am pg again lol. Perhaps this time the amount of money we spend will put me off anymore babies!
Having said that we did get lots of bargains, and it's always good to get a few freebies!
The only thing that put me off was the lack of food and drink etc....didn't really cater for my huge pregnancy appetite, I ended up breaking into a packet of free rusks!!
I didn't go last year but the previous year, and it was great fun. If you go on the last day there are loads of bargains available and you get lots of samples and freebies.
BTW Congratulations Sweetheart hope you have a happy healthy pregnancy.
Hey Sweetheart, I'm sure things will go fine this time round. I know how you feel, the same happened to me 2 years ago. I now have a wonderful little boy that I'm sooooo grateful to have! My thoughts are with you over the next 30 weeks! Are you on the 'due in nov' thread then? It'd be good to see how you're doing from time to time.
Anyway, you definitely do get some really good bargains there. A lot cheaper than retail prices esp the bigger brands that are there. You should go, you could always just order stuff.
Thinking of you sweetheart, hopefully all goes well.
I used last year's show as a fact finding mission so to speak! I couldn't make up my mind about which buggy/nursery furniture etc to have and it was really helpful to have a look at things in the flesh IYSWIM.
I didn't actually buy all that much but got lots of info which was really helpful. I didn't want to tempt fate as I know of 2 late losses and I didn't start buying in earnest until 6 months.
If you are feeling up to it, I'd go as it is great fun.
Been today,for anyone going tomorrow it is very good but hugely busy and your ankles get extremely bruised from all the pushchairs running into you! Massive queues for the Pampers changing area but the whole event is well worth it. Got a great deal on a 6 square ft playmat (spongey interlockable affair) for £15. Enjoy
