This is my first, so I am not sure what I will actually do, but I know I have had major problems with cabin fever before. So I am planning on going for walks as soon as it is safe, preferably with the baby in a baby hawk or similar. I am also planning on pre-cooking, as I cannot be sure that I will have any help with that. However, I am absolutely sure that my friends and family will lend me their DVD series etc. and many good books.
I am not very worried about the cold, even though October can be cold here. There are so many mum's that do just fine and I can call a number of them up and ask for advice on weather-related things.
