I seem to be struggling to get on here at all of late, so I'm guessing once baby comes I will have to give it up all together! I am on Facebook though, so if anyone does want to keep in touch feel free to PM me for my details
Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on my bump photos - it was so much fun! The girls thought it was their birthday and Christmas come at once as they had their own private facepainter (a friend I've known since primary school), her partner made them balloon animals and my friend brought them presents as we haven't caught up in ages so she figured she'd missed a couple of birthdays. Needless to say they've been asking me when she'll be coming again
Elle, Quinston, P!nk, Ali, FlyingKiwi, RedinOz, Susie - How are you all going with your new (and not so new) little ones. I'm sure by now things are settling into a bit more of a routine, but it is certainly never easy! While I understand none of you probably have much time to post at the moment, if you're still
ing out there then at least know I'm still thinking of you and hope all is going well
Michie - Toilet training... fun, fun, fun! DD2 was literally at the point of having whole dry days and now she has regressed to the point of telling us she needs to go after she has already gone in her nappy. I guess she just changed her mind about being ready
I never bought a twin pram as DD1 never used a pram, so I must admit we just aren't in the habit of using one. I find the baby carrier (hug-a-bub style that I made myself) an absolute God-send and the fact that you can now get trolleys with two seats is a miracle for doing the shopping! I wish I had bought a glider with DD1, but they seemed like a ridiculously expensive, non-essential item at the time - oh how naive I was! With DD2 I didn't buy one as I thought she was our last and now that I'm on number three it's just not in the budget
If I could go back to 2007/2008 I would definitely be telling myself not to bother with the $500 pram (that is still in new condition) and to spend the money on a glider instead!
Hope the move to the new bed goes well, and good luck with everything once DH is in Darwin.
Rumply - I now what you mean about feeling this pregnancy, I'm sure I wasn't this bad with the girls! Even my 2 year old offers to help me off the floor now and I need help to put my shoes on or pick things up off the ground
Plus I have that really sexy pregnancy grunt happening every time I change position! In short, I think a beached whale has more manouverability
Donna - Wonderful to hear you're in your new house, it must be wonderful to have the extra space! I share your concerns about babysitters during labour as we don't really have much family near by and no one that can come and stay for a while. The girls keep asking me who's going to look after them, but the best I can tell them is it all depends on when I go into labour and how long it lasts! It would be nice to be able to plan things a little more accurately though!
AFM, huge, uncomfortable and really hoping this baby decides to make his appearance a little early. I saw the OBGYN on Wednesday and everything looks good (baby has stayed head down which is a huge relief as neither of the girls did), so now it's just a matter of waiting to see when he decides to make his appearance...
We've got most of the physical side of the home renos done, which is just as well as I'm not up to it any more, but I still have a lot of sorting / unpacking etc to do before the house is back in order. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though, which is a welcome relief!
Anyway, I need to get off the computer as I can't sit in one position for very long. I hope everyone is doing well and even if I'm not posting much I still pop in to see how you're all going. I'll try and let you know once I have some news - cross your fingers it's sooner rather than later!
