Yeah I would definitely get checked. We have quieter days that do worry but have started to figure things that baby responds to like Ed Sheeran and my OHs voice. Something fizzy and cold is meant to help too.

I am feeling a bit better today, I think it's just as my OH isn't well at the minute and there not 100% sure what's wrong but think it's stomach problems so he's been given tablets and been told to keep stress and anxiety to a minimum as they will make his symptoms worse so feel a bit alone. We had a talk last night though which has helped. Then had some sort of good news off my mum today as they have pretty much sorted money to move here meaning they don't need to live with us and she doesn't need to sell her house. Plus ordered babies wardrobe today so we just need to paint his room and put it all up which is another worry off my mind.

Ah that's good, work normally gets baby moving for me too. Thinks it's all the noises.

Yeah we've decided to get it started. But he's room has been used to store all boxes in from when we moved that haven't been unpacked so need to get that sorted first. I can't wait to get it all painted and done now. I just thought we already refer to it as the baby's room so thought it would hurt going in there with or without his furniture up so we may as well. Plus I'm at a stage where I'm not sure what else I need so hoping it will prompt the bits I've forgotten like packing the hospital bag has.

Angela you sound so prepared. We have cot bed and moses basket but neither have been put up yet. He's wardrobe gets here on Tuesday but think we will paint before putting it all together. I'm waiting for crib to see when we get to come home as thinking since he will be in a crib/cot in hospital it may be better even if he still fits in his moses basket to use that as it may be more familiar to him.

I thought I was nearly done getting things but now I have started to think about his nursery and started packing our hospital bags I keep realising there is more we don't have. It's mostly little things, we decided not to get a changing unit as we were going to have it downstairs but we have carpet which worries me as we were getting the one with the bath in and I think I'd just prefer to get a set of small draws in the corner to use and then it can be used for his toys when he gets older.

We have our appointment on Thursday to find out, starting to get really nervous now as I've been speaking to someone going through the same thing that is coming to the same hospital we're at and she had her scan for the same thing a few days ago and go the all clear for a natural birth for now and been told it's unlikely to now change. I think because I'm so scared of having a c-section, never mind at a hospital with no maternity unit, it's making it a lot harder. X

Fingers crossed for good news!

We are not that prepared. There is still so much we need to get!

I've honestly started to hit a brick wall with it. I know I need mattress for cot and cot blanket. I need a baby bath but think we're going to get that when we come home as don't want to get one too small. And I need room thermometer which I'm getting when he's nursery is all together other then that I have no clue. I just keep walking down baby Isles in shops and think oh I haven't got that and picking it up haha.

Angela Fox. Are you planning on nursing? Have you give it a thought?

Yeah I would definitely buy a few bottles Angela as a few people I have spoke to their milk hasn't come through for a few hours or a day or 2. I have just a starter set and the one that came with my breast pump, were having to buy formula too as Leo needs extra calories but we're waiting to know if we need one prescribed or just a normal formula or will he be okay with just extra feeds.
I've still not got any extra extra maternity clothes just the one pair of jeggings and I'm still comfortable wearing leggings if not for a long period of time. I do have maternity work uniform though. I'm going to get some pyjama shirts too as will be easier to feed when he's here with a shirt.

Glad to hear Berk is doing well Missdyan, xx
