** THIRD TRIMESTER CHAT **

Afternoon ladies Suki my LO is having her nap too so whilst I wait for dog groomer to come thought I'd have a nosey!! Hoping, sorry you're having probs with your food. I would imagine eating more protein than carbs would be better for your levels, hopefully you'll find something nice! All you lot are far too social lol! We only have a 70th birthday party but not til September. I would explain the situation to the people and just say that you are going to have to see nearer the time. If feeding i...

What lovely topics are being discussed here today then lol? 1st time I just had a tiny tear, 2nd time I had an episiotomy (cut) and a tear....I also had an epidural but no catheter but I could feel half my stomach and did remember going for a wee in a bed pan...oh the glamour!! The point of having a cut is to try to stop you tearing (except in my case didn't work!) especially towards your 'back areas' so they will only do it if they have to, not sure if you can request one, not sure why you woul...

Just a quickie to say if any of you still have big purchases to be made, if you buy on Boots.com there is a discount code for 15% off plus 3 for 2 across all baby plus obviously your advantage card points and we went through a cashback site too! So...spent £330, saved £20ish on the 3 for 2, then saved another £45ish on the 15% off, got £33 back in points and £28 through the cashback site so roughly we paid £200 for over £300 worth of stuff...BARGAIN!!

High chairs for breakfast bars??

Hi Duffy Bloom do one called the loft which is designed for breakfast bars but at about £250-300 each not cheap! If you are talking about the regular IKEA highchairs, yes used them loads, seem to have them at alot of play places/ resturants etc.. and they are fine although not sure if would be too low for a breakfast bar. Happy spending x

Quoted from "BooBoo" i was thinking of having a mamoth mothercare shop when i'm over 30 weeks. Booboo, just go to one of the supermarkets and try and get as much stuff from there. I think Tesco do a pack of 6 vests for about £5 whereas you're prob looking at twice that in Mothercare. In the early days poo's tend to be explosive. go everywhere and stain so you won't be as bothered if it cost you less and they do some really nice stuff. And yes, i'm mrs. sausage hands and porky feet too...soooooo...

Thank you Chillimint, we're good thanks. I think it's around 36 weeks but there is no harm in writing it now and taking it along to your next appointment. Because I had a pretty traumatic time with DD2 I've had a few chats and discussed the options at my booking in appointment, at 20 weeks it was pretty clear that I was heading down the c-section route unless when I arrive at hospital it's too late. I must say that I feel the antenatal care I've received has been fab and listened to every step o...

When was your child dry at night?

it's easier with girls admittedly as my DD used to wear a nightie so you could just pull it up.

When was your child dry at night?

Hi Glitzy I used to lift my DD1 (now 18) out for a wee when I went to bed. It was a teddy bear potty with arms and she literally would sit, wee and I would life her back in. I don't think she even woke up half the time so may be worth trying this.If you were to try it with a pull up and see how he got on and if it doesn't work/ he doesn't like it he'll still be dry in his pull up anyway. Will he wee sitting down? Otherwise it may be harder Good luck

Caz, fab bump and best of luck! Hope it goes well and quickly for you!! Look forward to hearing your news Booboo, my rings have been off for the last 10 weeks now as I didn't want to risk getting them stuck on and having to get my engagement ring cut off. Taxi, yep! Not the most attractive of states is it lol. AFM, had midwife last week and am now measuring in at a whooping 34 weeks! Starting to find it really difficult now to bend and have been suffering from really bad swelling in the heat. Ca...

Hello to all the newbies over here! Been a while since I posted! Ali we had that a couple of weeks ago...not a very pleasant experience and a lot of cleaning of bathrooms afterwards!!! Hope you're all ok now. Ours too will be a hand me down baby, especially as it's a girl! Suki, from what I can gather it seems like you had a similar delivery to me last time but after a lot of umming and aahhing I'm having a section. As one consultant said, why you worrying about 4-6 weeks recovery when further d...

Tear from child birth. Please help.

I was told to mix some tea tree oil or lavendar with a tiny bit of milk (helps the oil disperse within the water rather than sit on top) and then use it in the bath. It is supposed to help with keeping everything clean but also with healing. Hope you feel better soon x

Morning girls and hello to tinyteacher (prob not to be tiny for much longer). My scan was at 14 weeks so can appreciate your apprehension. Are you at St. Marys too? Suki, you're smaller this time round???? How did you manage that lol? And no idea where to get maternity cycling shorts in size 16 Caz, congrats to being on mat leave. I'd love to say to you get your feet up but know what it's like with a LO running around. Dare i say it, I'm not the vaguest bit interested in reuseables...i never see...

Harry congrats on your little boy! Now you can get organised. I had an anterior placenta with DD2 and had no probs being pg. This time it's low lying which can be more of a stress unless it moves later on. Buggies and car seats, Lottie, I have a friend with the Jane slalom pro Twin something and it is a really good pram. The car seats are very easy to use and really light. I love the mountain buggy too but no way I'm getting a double as weighs in at 16kg!!!! You can get a carry cot to go with th...

oooooo lots of chatter in here as always Booboo, I was NEVER going to feed in public but you do get used to it and with a bit of experience you can do it without flashing any boob! You'll soon be sat in starbucks with your boobs out (and ANYTHING is better than listening to your baby crying) Most places have bf'ing facilities (some more plush than others) like Boots (rocker chair and foot stools in ours lol), John Lewis (comfy chairs and good clean facilities) to selfridges (a chair!!). Marks an...

Peony, I think with breastfeeding quite often new mums expect it's something that is going to be easy. In some cases it is but in most, it's not and it is something that you've both got to learn and it takes a little bit of time and patience. If you really want to breast feed, expect it to be hard at times and know where to go for help. I would advise going whilst on mat leave and before baby is born to your local childrens centre's and finding out when their groups are (I have about 4 or 5 near...
