    What is it with us February mums? I noticed that the January and March Baby Clubs have loads of topics and posts and the February Baby Club has almost none!!

    So I thought I'd ask a few questions (borrowed from the January Club) and see if there's any response from you all (I'll do my answers in the next post)...

    1. What’s your due date?

    2. Do you have any other children?

    3. Has it really hit home that you are pregnant now?

    4. List your items of maternity wear.

    5. Bought any baby things?

    6. Has your original due date been altered?

    7. Are you using anything to combat stretch marks?

    8. Do you know the sex yet?

    9. Have you felt it move yet?

    10. Do you want a 4d scan?

    11. List your symptoms this month.

    1. What’s your due date?
    February 16th

    2. Do you have any other children?
    This is my first, but my partner's son (12) from an earlier relationship lives with us and his daughter (10) stays every other w/end.

    3. Has it really hit home that you are pregnant now?
    Mostly, although some days it still seems hard to believe!

    4. List your items of maternity wear.
    I've got 2 pairs of jeans, a pair of combat type trousers and a pair of smart trousers and a bunch of tops, but none of it fits right yet.

    5. Bought any baby things?
    Bought one cute little vest in a Surf shop in California in the summer and have been given a moses basket and some clothes by a friend.

    6. Has your original due date been altered?
    Yeah, they calculated end of January from my LMP, but I didn;t believe it as I've always been madly irregular!

    7. Are you using anything to combat stretch marks?
    I massage Avent cream or nice oil most days

    8. Do you know the sex yet?
    Yes - she's a girl!! I'm really pleased!!!

    9. Have you felt it move yet?
    Yes - a peculiar sort of tickly sensation. It's wierd to feel her moving about in there - makes it more real.

    10. Do you want a 4d scan?
    Not really. My OH does, but I must admit I think they're a bit odd. But I love my scan pics. She was sucking her thumb at the last scan on Wedneday.

    11. List your symptoms this month.
    Nothing particularly new really. More twingy pains around the bump here and there, my breasts seems to be getting even bigger, and I've finally put on a bit more weight!!

    Hi Skidoo - I had been thinking of answering these in the wrong month - nobody ever seems to come on this page do they?!!

    OK

    1. What's your due daye?
    February 12th

    2. Do you have any other children?
    Yes - 7yr old girl and 3 yr old monster disguised as a boy!

    3. Has it hit home that you are pregnant now?
    Hmmm - sort of, the symptoms keep it fairly real - just hasn't really sunk in that there will be a baby at the end of it all (if you get what I mean). It wasn't planned so all a bit of a shock really!

    4. List your items of maternity wear.
    3 pairs jeans, a pair of smart black trousers, a pair of combats and a few tops - all purchased off ebay for a bargain price. I have loads of baggy Tshirts from last winter before I lost weight that will do nicely for this year!!

    5. Bought any baby things?
    Have most stuff left over from previous 2 (even though I wasn't having any more)- have bought a travel system off ebay for a bargain though.

    6. Has your original due date been altered?
    Was 10th February until I had my scan - not much difference though.

    7. Are you using anything to combat stretch marks?
    No - I lost 2 stone before I got pregnant - I'm guessing the baby will just take up the room that that did!! I didn't really suffer badly with my other 2 - my skins used to being stretched!!

    8. Do you know the sex yet?
    No - we decided to go for a surprise with this one as we found out with both of the others - we have one of each already so doesn't really matter (would secretly like another girl though!)

    9. Have you felt it move yet?
    Have had a few small sensations, but nothing very obvious. Was a little worried until I had my scan - I thought you were supposed to feel them earlier when they weren't your first! - must be all the extra padding I have!

    10. List your symptoms this month.
    Have started waking up with cramp in the night, still throwing up and I have some serious heartburn issues!

    I don't get cramps at night, but have started to get quite a lot of pain in the lower stomach area. I don't know if you've ever been horse riding, but the last time I went - after a very very long time of not - I had similar pains. I guess it's stretching of something or other, but it's pretty sore!

    certainly sounds like stretching pains to me! mine was awful last night - felt all tight and bloated - much better today though, think it just does as it likes at the moment!

    hope you feel better though, it can be quite unconfortable cant it!

    due date 2 feb

    i have two boys kieran aged 10 and joshua 3

    i would say that the last two months i have started believing that i am pregnant. weird this time. last time i felt more bonded, (not the right word but struggling to find the right one)

    got 3 pairs trousers, 1 pair of jeans, loads of tops

    bought the baby a bath and a pram. not kept anything of joshua's (what a fool i am)

    originally they gave me the same day as Sami in January, cant remember off hand when that was

    got stretch marks from the first two so didnt bother this time

    sonographer said boy, but i'm not convinced, two seperate psychics predicted a girl, one even got the correct name, so watch this space

    have been feeling movements since about 23 weeks

    i would have loved a 4d scan, but i couldnt be bothered to travel to london for one

    my symptoms for this month are, extreme tiredness, pains low down, like pressure.
