Wordless Wednesdays

Thought I'd jump on the bandwagon, sorry for the lazy post! Yesterday, I panicked when I realised I was 30 weeks pregnant, and read somewhere I should have a hospital bag packed by 36 I went out and treated myself to a new holdall, and hunted out all of Boy's old newborn things to pop in it. He was 7lb13 but needed early baby clothes as he was so tiny. The picture depicts a babygro he currently wears, and one that was too big when he was born. How did my baby get so big?! *Sob*!

Also: check out "and 1 more means 4", there's a great giveaway!! Always worth an entry right?? For even more chances for this stay at Alton Towers, try Perfectly Happy Mum too!

Aw, how cute. I'm really looking forward to getting all the baby clothes down from the attic (or getting Chris to, more to the point). Can't remember if you have found out whether you're having a boy or a girl this time? I'm quite pleased that we can reuse Rosemary's clothes, but also part of me would quite enjoy going out and buying lots of cute boys' clothes!

Not found out what flavor we're getting, same drill as last time! Very exciting this way I find, as having a set date for my c-section. A friend with a same age little girl will lend us their baby clothes if it's a girl, but lots of boys stuff works well on girls, such as dungarees!

I know, it's amazing how you don't notice them getting bigger until you look at the old clothes. Cave Baby took aaaages to outgrow her 0-3 month clothes but now she's really got into her stride with solids her weight is rocketing and she is going through new clothes like water.

I had been wondering how far along you were - 30 weeks is quite near the end! You must be so excited and scared. Two under 2s is going to be tough. At least you will hopefully have a vague idea what you're doing this time! Is you c-section scheduled for 40 weeks or earlier?

Boy grew very fast at first, now he's slowed down lots,he's been in size 4 nappies for a year! And still in 9-12m clothes (he's 18m). So near the end, but nothing ready for baby yet! Bought 4 babygros the other day...that's it! It will be full on with 2 little ones, but I'm armed with my sling, and I've arranged that my mum is taking Boy out (either to her house or a toddler group he usually goes to with me) each weekday morning for 8 weeks, and then bringing him here to spend time with me & baby in the afternoon, but still being in charge of the "leg-work", so I can effectively and quickly recover from my c-section with proper rest, I was so ill last time with 3rd degree tears, I really missed out on the newborn stage, determined to rest and get better quickly this time. In our area, it's 41 weeks for a c-section, they don't like to risk breathing issues. I've been on meds (that I have to finish in 6 weeks *sob*) that may affect baby's breathing, so I don't mind the extra week's wait. Thanks for asking! It's nice to chat about it, I'm practically ignoring this pregnancy compared with last time!!

That photo is so sweet. When you get your new baby you realise a)how small newborns are and b)how big your big baby is! x

Yes, Rosemary was in lots of boys' clothes when she was small, as a friend of a friend gave us two big bags of clothes. She had some lovely blue and white stripey sleepsuits, but in the end I got so bored with people assuming she was a boy, I gave in to the pink and purple. No willpower.

If you're scheduled for C-Section at 41 weeks, what happens if you go into labour early? Do they do a C-Section anyway? Most people I know who've had scheduled ones had them at about 38 weeks. I'm 26 weeks now and, if Eleanor comes early like Rosemary did, we might end up with the same birthdays!

I wasn't early last time, but of course there is always a chance. The birth wa so f****d up by the NHS last time that they are petrified of me giving birth naturally again. I have permanent nerve damage due to the "repair" job they did on me (and re-did at 4m), so I will defiantly get my section, don't worry! The hospital is only 20mins away, and I was in labour 50hrs last time. If i went into labour it would e classed as an emergency op, but the truth is, c-sections are rarely a true emergency. Don't worry! I'm not,lol. Anything is better than what I went through last time :-)

Oh that is such a sweet picture. I spent ages picking the baby clothes for my hospital bag. In the end I was driving myself mad so made myself pack plain white vests and sleepsuits.

Aaah - I love it - you never quite realise just how big they've become until you look at their clothes. First baby clothes are just the cutest. Renée was 7lbs 13oz too! x
