    I'm nearly 30 weeks! :shock:

    Does anyone else still not feel this is real sometimes?

    My aunt & uncle foster and last night they had 3 boys placed with them - a 7yr old, 6yr old and a baby! (some confusion over the baby's age, it's either 7 weeks or 11 weeks old or somewhere between the two, my aunt wasn't sure which!)
    We are going over tomorrow and I'm insanely excited about tiny baby cuddles and was getting emotional & upset we don't live closer or I'd be round every day lol... had to remind myself I'll have my own baby in less than 3 months.

    I still find it hard to believe that I am actually going to have a baby of my own soon :roll::lol:

    I know, it's flying by isn't it, every day I can't believe that I'm actually pregnant, let alone in the third tri and baby is going to be here soon :)
    I think we're completely ready now though, we've bought everything for the hospital bag and premature stuff this weekend, so I just need to wash clothes and pack.
    I've contacted the local nappy library and ordered a newborn pack from the 1st August. We're due on the 20th July and have organic, biodegradable premature nappies in case baby comes early and newborn ones to see us through until the 1st August, does that sound reasonable do you think? xx

    That's sounds good to me, Unicorn.

    Generally unless you are hiring newborn nappies, the first size and birth-to-potty (one size) tend to fit best when they are over 8lbs AND a couple of weeks old and have started putting on fat. When they are newborn even if 7/8lb they are usually pretty skinny and the larger cloth nappies don't give a good fit.
    If you're ordering newborn ones (up to 12lb?) they should still fit in August. Unless he's born 2 weeks late and is huge ;) lol. But honestly I think you guessed about right.

    If your baby comes early(er) and you want to get him in cloth sooner I'm sure you'll be able to arrange it with the nappy library then.

    I have my local nappy library person coming to see me in a couple of weeks because I was going to hire some newborn nappies but then Tots bots had their Teenyfits (6-12lb) on half price so I got 5 (and already had a few other newborn size) and then it was Real Nappy Week this week so cloth nappies have been on sale so I've bought quite a few. And I also bought a few 'gently used' ones too lol. So don't actually think I will need to hire any now lol! I have around 45-50 nappies altogether and I still have to send off for my free kit from the council (you get about 3 nappies, a wrap, liners, and wet nappy bag) and I have some in the loft from when I had my 9yr old in cloth! LOL.

    I saw my aunt's [foster] baby today lol.
    He's almost 12 weeks old but he only weighed 4lb 14oz at birth! So must have been a bit early. He's still in 0-3m clothes and size 1 pampers, and looks more like an 8 week old than 3 month old.

    I'm jealous Mel! Still in week 26 here, but keen to join you ladies. I'm clearly stalking the Tri 3 thread in the meantime, as activity on Tri 2 has died out.

    I think it's going allpretty fast to be honest.
    I'm feeling ok but getting horrendous back ache when sitting down.
    Brought a birthing ball the other week and it's helping a little.

    Just been doing some online shopping and have finally chosen my changing bag and have also ordered my breast pump as found it on offer at babies r us xx

    Is anyone else feeling sick from baby movements? Last week I got checked for too much movement and it appears the little wriggle bum is having another super active day with a five min break every couple of hours. Since 8am i have been a punching bag. I feel like I could just throw up. My tummy hurts so much and I just feel so sick. I still worry that it's to much movement but last week they said all was fine after a near 24 hours of constant movement, so not sure if I should go again? Baby doesn't have a set routine just that I get quieter days and active days and then a super active day! This is only the second super active day I have had. But ouchy! And I can't get on with my work as I can't even stand with the movement. Last night I was worried about not enough movement!! I don't know what it will be like with baby growing and the next 11 weeks or so! I'm only little.

    Oooh, you're good working right up. I started Mat Leave at 29 weeks and took some holiday before that LOL!!

    I'm hoping mine comes early (spontaeneous labour) like at 37-39 weeks because I want to avoid induction (I had OC with my other two and was induced, this time I'm hoping I'll escape it, but if I do get it again I'll refuse induction as long as possible but the longer I go the harder it'll be to avoid/refuse), and also I'm used to having little babies, I'm not too bothered about going 'overdue' other than not wanting to have a huge newborn LOL!!!


    I've bought pretty much everything I need now.

    I have a car seat and nappies, wipes, pads (for me), and baby clothes.
    Only thing I still need to get is a breastpump (well I don't really need one but I want to get one) and maybe some more maternity pads and breastpads.
    Also I'm probably going to get a washing up bowl rather than a baby bath lol!! I had a baby bath with my 9yr old but it took up too much space and now my bathroom is really tiny so I'll just get a bowl and then when they outgrow it will have to just use the actual bath lol.

    I'm just impatiently waiting for the weather to improve now so I can finish getting everything washed (and dried outside) and ready. Nappies are washed but baby clothes aren't.
