Anyone else approaching the 20 week mark?

It feels like a nice milestone and scan day I'd nearly here !

Feeling excited about everything but I'm sure there is more I should be doing to prepare!

Any tips on books to read, food to eat and what to put on the to do list at this stage would be greatly received.

And it would also be lovely to say hi to some mummies-to-be around the same stage!

I was 21 weeks on sunday. No tips on books ( not read any assuming you mean about motherhood..), to do list as not got one or food as just eating usual diet. But on the plus side I may make you feel very organised smile. In my defence, I am moving house on Fri and getting married in 10 days time so I have lots of to do lists - just not about baby yet. 20 week scan such a nice milestone and I'm enjoying feeling the baby (my first) kicking.

Thanks for your reply. It's my first too - so lovely to feel the movements!

Wow you've got lots on - good luck with the move and congrats on the wedding! I have similar to do lists in place as we're moving at Xmas time and getting married next August. Funny how everything happens at once isn't it! Thankfully most of wedding was planned & booked already but need to start focusing on baby to do list now!

Will let you know if I find any good pregnancy or baby books smile

And all the best with your exciting few weeks ahead!

OP go on to the antenatal boards and look for the group for your due month- are you due in March?

I am 20 weeks tomorrow and have my scan in the morning. This is my third baby but there is a 7 year age gap between this pregnancy and my last so I have been reading some books. I am reading The Baby Whisperer as my dsis had her first baby in January and has raved about it.

Hope you're 20 week scan went well x
