Some of them are pretty darn expensive! I keep looking at them and thinking man I could buy a whole cloth diaper stash with that amount of money lol.
WOW - baby showers are not done so much over here - and diaper cakes, thats a whole different world.Talula Fairie
you and your dh spend 2-4 hours a day cleaning your house! i sort of potter round after my boys (and 2 dogs, and 2 cats) cleaning up as i go and then collapse on the sofa when they finally go to bed thinking ' i should really clean this house'. once a week we have a mad panic because people are visiting and it needs not to be such a hole.
My MIL keeps on asking me how its been going with the midwife and i have to admit i've been to the booking in appointment at 15 weeks, and popped to the hospital for a scan at 22 weeks but i've not been back since. Midwife said i could come to which ever appointments i wanted too and up until 28 weeks they just do pee in a pot, blood pressure and listen to the baby, so i skip it. But i am popping along this friday as they will do some blood tests etc and i like to keep them happy and on side, so they don't think i'm too alternative. We had an intentional whoops UC last time, but have changed counties so they local hospital etc does not have any records, don't want them thinking i might do the same this time, they will only panic.
Ordered some herbs for birth & PP last night and asked my friend for her birthing pool, need to order a new liner etc. Not sure what else i need... a few more nursing bras etc might wait until after and see what my boobs do this time.
Our study is nearly done, just need to start on the main downstairs room next month, get some shelves up and the house more organised. I've been cleaning a re-organising my (tiny) kitchen cupboards, makes me happy to see them clean and tidy and wish the rest of the house might look a little more like them.
I'd not been too bad on the pregnancy symptoms until last night, propped up with pillows to stop the heart burn and then restless legs (how much do i hate that) and every time i tried to stretch out my legs they cramped, so i had to try and un-cramp them without waking up ds2 who had taken up 80% of the bed by that time. Oh and i've got a cold, which i treated with a little too much vit c, and we all know what that can do, not great when you've got piles!
But apart from all that, happily pregnant and enjoying home educating my two boys who have been rather happy and co-operative this week (so far).
