I only seem to get BH if they're triggered by exercise. And by 'exercise' I mean 'standing up or walking five metres'. :p It's odd though; with my other pregnancies I'd get them randomly, while lying...

I haven't really been following this thread, but in case it hasn't been said: learn to nurse lying on your side! It's fantastically effort-free, especially if you cosleep.

Hmm, sort of? I still feel like it's ages away, but I think that's just because I really hate pregnancy and am getting very excited to meet the baby. This whole pregnancy has felt, like, two years...

And another onesie... a polar-bear onesie fully lined with fluff. It has an invisible zip at the crotch and another down the middle. The photo doesn't do it justice - it looks so cozy in real life!...
