    I'm 22 and it's mine and hubby's first baby after nearly 3 years of trying. We'd definitely like 2, but I would like 3 :D
    Although after so desperately wanting to become pregnant I've not really enjoyed it until now... Now I just hurt all over! Xx

    If my son gets his way though we'll be having 89!!?

    And a coming home outfit for baby if you have something special in mind.

    Oh and it's worth clearing a shelf in the freezer and making some meals to microwave when you get home & for the following few days.

    Buy in UHT milk (doesn't taste the best but shopping won't be a priority!)
    And part baked baguettes too.

    Think flick has it all covered! Love the dark flannel and towel- yes def!!! And also don't forget your toothbrush- buy a new one and put it in before hand. After a full 25 hours in labour with my first all I wanted to do was brush my teeth and I'd forgotten my toothbrush �� then DH went and forgot it at visiting time!!
