rolleyes.gif Hi everyone,

This is our first pregnancy and we are due on 6th September. I can't believe how fast it has gone already, and how big my belly has gotten and how much weight i have gained!! OMG...even though DH said that it isnt that much.

We have decided not to find out the sex, and have a surprise. We have started buying items for the baby room already ie cot, stroller, change room...and bits and pieces. We are about to paint the baby room next month...with a nice feature wall...we have decided on yellow....any thoughts ladies.

So yeah...theres lots to do...but im organised...and have started watching dvd on birth...and OMG to tell you the truth it kinda freaked me out...but i know i can do this...cos women have been giving birth for ages.

Lately im not sleeping very well, keep waking up at 2am and 4am and find it hard to sleep, so quite tired during week at work. Ive tried sleeping with long pillow and adding more pillow under bump.

So i guess, im here to talk to other ladies....who feel not as prepared....perhaps...and know that its ok...and talk to other ladies and get support.

Hope to chat lots soon. Im fairly new to this EB...so bare with me ladies.

hey
welcome and Congratulations
Pregnancy is such a new thing to new mummies
scary, exciting and over whelming!
But you will be right!
Just remember not to panic over every little pain etc.

and do go overboard buying clothes etc cause half the time you wont need to use the majority of them.. hehehe

Sleeping- it will be your body adjusting etc to the bump and hormones etc, try a bath hot drink before bed even a massage from your partner!

Hi,

I'm due Sept 5th-8th, depending on what date you choose to believe. Though with my first I went two weeks early.

I too have no idea the gender - makes baby purchasing a little more challenging - but so worth it in the end.

Baby names - will be the end of me!!! My partner and I do not agree on anything (well, he doesn't agree with any suggestions and makes none for me to disagree with :-D). But it's fun coming up with combinations and possibilities.

My only preparation advice is be open-minded and relax while you still can.

The shops don't close when your baby is born, so if you've forgotten something - it's not the end of the world. You'll find plenty of people willing and ready to support and help you (you just need to ask as people often "don't want to get in the way".

Good luck with it all.
