Hi All smile
Well happy to report I was 12wks last Saturday!
So much to catch up on as I haven't logged in for a bit, & silly me didn't take notes!
Well maternity jeans all the way for me now, lol. My tummy is rapidly expanding although I am not putting on much weight, just changing shape. Happy with that as I am carrying excess anyways as I never lost the weight I added with DS1 or DS2. As this is our last baby I have vowed to get back in shape & back to my pre baby weight - will need lots of motivation & willpower but must do it for myself!
Someone asked about nursery furniture - I did get a change table, but I've also had 2 c/s's so it was a great thing for me. I do like my change table as it keeps all the nappies, wipes etc in one spot (although with little hands I don't keep any creams etc on it anymore lol). The other things I couldn't live without are my portacot, it is great when I need to contain DS2 while I hang out clothes without chasing him all over the yard. Plus when he was little it separated the boys so DS1 couldn't jump on his brother whilst I wasn't looking, especially if I needed to go to the loo, lol. Also the baby carrier with DS2 was excellent, that way I didn't need a double pram & still had 2 hands when out shopping. Thinking of getting one of those buggy boards that attach to the pram this time as I really love my pram & don't want a double one if I can avoid it - my thinking is DS1 can use the buggy board, DS2 in the pram & bub in the baby carrier.
Tina, I am also at the stage of weaning DS2 from the boob but he is still having more than 2 feeds a day sad I don't think either of us are ready but I know I need to give my body a break in between. My problem is he doesn't like cow's milk, just some more persistence required as DS1 hated it at first as well but now drinks it like it is going out of fashion. Good luck in the weaning process.
Molly & Chloe's Mum, I don't envy you owner building whilst pregnant. We are currently renovating & do 99% of the work ourselves & it is the pits at times. But the end product is worth it, just hard to see the light sometimes.
I am going to need to look at booster seats, we have 2 car seats now & I am hoping DS1 will be heavy enough for a booster before this bub is born. He has never been a big kid. But in saying that I will probably hire a capsule from the ambulance service for 6mths so just have to hope all the seats/capsule fit across our back seat in the car!
Well I have rambled heaps, the washing machine has stopped again so should hang out the next load of clothes & go get the boys weighed.
Chat again soon,
