    We are really getting into it now!

    We went out yesterday and got some nice bits in John Lewis and tonight we are going to go mad in the aisles at tesco and mothercare!

    I finally got the DH to see sense on saturday morning. I basically said something along the lines of:- This is a joint marriage and it is not up to you when we make decisions to buy things. You may not really believe that he is coming but I bloody do! and the stress of not being able to buy things can't be good for me ....etc...etc

    It worked!

    OK on sunday we only bought 2 cat safety nets, some towells, sponges and some frames for our wedding pictures, but it was a start. Major spree tonight though. We are doing our big mothercare world and tesco shopping tonight, and I'll let you know what we bought tomorrow!

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I was so excited about it last night I couldn't sleep! :D

    I am hoping to get as much as possible in Tesco to be honest. Babygrows are half the price they are in mothercare. I saw some disney babygrows in mothercare for £14 but they were £7 in Tesco!

    I am hoping that they have quite a few bits like grooming sets etc in with the baby food department. Fingers crossed.

    My local tesco has everything. I am also going to pick up one of their value fleeces for myself to keep warm in.

    Quite looking forward to the trip actually. I am wierd! :lol:

    You're not wierd - shopping for baby stuff is exciting!! I'm going to have to do mine nline, wait till nearer my due date when I will be allowed out a bit more safely, or send OH (not a good idea!!).

    I love Tesco too for their stuff - we have a massive 2 floor Tesco just opened up not far from where we live - hoping to get to go there soon!! :D

    Sarah I am so glad you are finally able to get all baby's things, you must be really chuffed now. I know what you mean about being really excited, I have nearly got everything I need now and I have been really excited and unable to sleep each time I have been about to go shopping!!

    The only thing I can get my OH interested in is pushchairs. He's well keen to get one with big wheels and squizzy brakes and I don't know what else. He doesn't seem that bothered that I'm the one who's going to be pushing the damn thing ;o)

    Tesco DO have baby grooming sets, i got a lovely little one for €8.99 with a nail scissors, a brush and comb, a toothbrush and a clippers, all in a wee case. They also have sunscreens for the car window and all sorts of bottles/teats/pacifiers/toys...

    I LOVE the Winnie the Pooh sleeping suits - got three there for €15.

    Mothercare for the unisex bibs, though... :D we're going to be guessing right up to the last minute, I think!

    I didn't see winnie the pooh sleeping bags in tesco :cry: must try harder!

    Did see a very nice fleecy soft toy, but the DH said that other people will buy that sort of thing. So I am going to go back there and buy it when he is not looking! :wink:

    My biggest disappointment was that mothercare world shut at 7pm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: . We got there at 6:40pm so we couldn't look properly and I felt really rushed. We only managed to get a bath thermometer a grooming kit and 4 fitted cotbed sheets. Luckily we had a couple of 10% discount vouchers through the post yesterday so we got a bit of discount to make up for the rush.

    In tesco we got lots of baby grows, the cutest hat you have ever seen for £2.50, some socks and sleepsuits. Also a value fleece for me in the biggest size I could find for £4 and some cosmetic bits like cotton wool.

    The biggest surprise was that the DH gor really into sterlisers all of a sudden :?: and in the space of about five minutes he had them all figured out! :lol: I am pretty clueless about bottles and stuff so I left it for him to work out while I looked at the Disney nursery stuff. 8)

    I really feel like we have made a start now :D and we didn't argue once!
