    No not set up. Did get the car seat out to have a nose though. I’m quite prepared my bedside crib arrived today and my sleepyhead last week. I am very fortunate all my scans are regular and I’m nearly 23 weeks now so confident all is well.

    As we r not finding sex haven’t gone mad on clothes. One thing we are doing is each week when Tescos gets delivered I order a box of wet wipes and a pack of nappies about £7 a week in total. We are on about 8 boxes of 12 packs of wet wipes and over 400 nappies already .... mad I know but they are guaranteed to be used.

    I also have made the most of amazons deal with bounty. If you make a baby wish list and spend £20 off this list you get 4x packs of water wipes for free worth £10 ! So I ordered the steriliser I needed which was £20 and wipes for free. This week ordered a set of Baby bottles and got the wipes for free using my husbands acc.

    I know babies can have sensitivities to wet wipes so the standard wet wipes won’t be used when it’s really newborn. So the water wipes will be coming in handy then !!

    I learnt last time what I went overkill on so this time I am focusing on the things I know we will need !!

    Such good tips @Sparklisam!

    Scan went ok, baby was not in a good position though so need to go back for another scan next week. Also the sonographer said that she spotted some fluid in the kidneys so they will check this again next time, but I'll need another scan at 32 weeks. It's a problem that seems to resolve itself it most cases so I'm not overly worried. I got the whooping cough vaccination too. We didn't get any pictures either as baby was just not having it lol

    BUT we did get to find out the gender, and delighted to say we'll be joining team blue with a baby boy xxxxx :blue::blue::blue:

    Omg I must of missed your post as I replied before !!!
    Congratulations !!!!!
    I'm in for a check up scan at 32 weeks, sometimes it's when everything isnt playing ball...everythings still growing so hopefully it will clear itself.
    I was never offered the whooping cough vaccine I've had to book in at my docs this week xx

    I've had my midwife appt today. My midwife is on leave at the moment so there was another midwife in her place. Nice lady but she seemed to rush things the whole time. Listened to little ones heartbeat for about 3 seconds and that was it. It was nice to hear it but it seemed like as soon as she found it she took the probe off and packed the doppler away, which I found a little weird. Fundal height measurement seems to be right on track though which is good :)

    I'll have my next midwife appt in 4 weeks time and will be happy to have my normal midwife back lol.

    Thanks ladies! We're over the moon, with 3 sisters I think my mum and dad were desperate for a little boy in the family so we're all very chuffed! But yes a lot of boys so far in the thread... has to be some girls elsewhere...

    That whooping cough vaccine has butchered my arm... I have a massive bruise! Also forgot to mention that I was told that my placenta is at the front, which surprises me as I do feel movement quite a bit! And it's also low on my cervix, but it should stretch and move over. It's something else they'll keep an eye on.

    Just waiting for the repeat anomaly scan date now, hopefully baby plays ball this time around! xxx

    My whooping cough really hurt too !! I had to take my LO as it was just easier so had to be brave looking but it really hurt ha. Then for a few days after. I thought I was being a proper wimp so I’m glad I wasn’t the only one !!

    Mine is very low to. I wouldn’t worry about it. Sometimes I actually feel baby so low he’s in my pelvis and it hurts me...which was proved in my scan today as she wasn’t scanning my tummy to find him she scanned much, much lower!

    20 week scan today!
    Baby was not interesting in cooperating. He was so low in my tummy and curled up that I had to jump around! Ha, and when that didn’t work I had to go drink lots and have a walk. 1 hour later baby had all his measurements done and he is perfectly healthy.

    It was just noted that it is anterior but I knew that anyway. Everything else is fine.
    I know so cheeky aren’t they haha.

    Just wondering girls (might post a separate post for more advice) but if my baby is super low and I have an anterior placenta does anyone think this could be causing my bleeding? Xx

    Oh I'm not sure?
    I know a low lying placenta can sometimes cause bleeding but anterior is a frontal placenta so I'm not sure.
    Maybe ring your midwife? Xx

    @Aprilxxx According to the radiographer I have a low lying anterior placenta and I have been lucky enough to have never experienced any bleeding in my pregnancy so far, but that's not to say it's not a cause! Might just be different for each woman or maybe my baby just isn't as low? Like @ChloB said maybe mention it to your midwife see what she says

    Hubby finally felt a kick last night!! It was such an obvious little kick, no doubting it - such a lovely moment for us to share :cheer::cheer::cheer:
