Hi
Just a quick email "Going the distance--the capsule hire, it costs about $150 for 6 mths and usually the baby outgrows the capsule by 6-7mths time. Also most of the capsule hire have systems that can be used with most car seats. Do check out this site

www.hireforbaby.com.au
www.babyhire.com.au
If you don’t mind me asking, which area did you enquire about the child care, cause in Pascoe vale they have asked me to get in touch with them 4 mths before the date I want to admit  my baby to childcare. 2 yr waiting period sounds like a long time!!!

Take care

Dee

Hi Melbourne Ladies!

I'm moving to Newport in a few weeks, I don't really know anyone having babies in Melbourne and thought that there might be other Melbourne mums-to-be in the same situation? Even if your not the more the merrier!

I have been working pretty hard the past 9 months and moved from Sydney last year, so haven't had much chance to meet a lot of people. I know the Perth girls formed their own facebook group so they could keep in touch. If anyone wants to get in touch so when we have our June babies - mine is due June 15 - we can catch up and  share some tips please get in touch.

Hi Ladies,
I am not from Melbourne, about an hour out in Gippsland.
I am due 12th June with a boy, out first child.

I have found baby bunting to be great help with all my questions and the prices are great if you see cheaper elsewhere they beat it.
I have brought my pram a BJ city select from the USA and saved over $300- just waiting on it's arrival now.

Going the distance- There is a facebook group for June babies, are you part of this? If not, you can add me and I can add you in (it's a secret group so nobody see's anything) It's a really great group of ladies who are very open to answering lots of questions for us first time mums.

I am 25 +6 now and really starting the feel it, getting back pain most days and finding it impossible to get comfortable to sleep.

How is everybody else coping?

Hi ladies, my name is Nikki and I'm due 2nd June.  I live in Preston and am expecting our 4th child (4th boy).  I've had all previous CS's and am having our baby at the RWH publicly.  I had my scan at WOME and didn't find it very expensive, sometimes I wonder if private is worth the money considering the costs that add up.

I've just had my Glucose test and had a high level (8.7) and have to go back for a 2nd test.  Anyone else that their GD tests done yet?
Nikki

Hi everyone,

New to posting....

Expecting our first on 11th june, going to frances perry and seeing Dr angie lee....

Have been doing way too much shopping. We bought a steelcraft agile, seems very light 7.5kg, easy to handle, had car capsule system and had a $50 money back promotion at the time from the manufacturer.....

I had my glucose tolerance test the other day, no results yet, but hoping no news is good news...

Nice meeting you all...

Hi All,

Hope you all well, I had my glucose testing done a couple of weeks ago.  Results were all good but didnt enjoy all the needles.  The drink wasnt as bad as i thought it would be, just tasted like extra sweet lemonade.

Im due on June 10th at Francis Perry and also seeing Angie Lee.  Time is going so fast now, im in my 29th week although Im starting to feel organised,  i have all my big ticket items and have started setting up the nursery.

Feeling pretty good now - just really tired and the belly is really getting bigger, finding it a bit harder to get a good nights sleep now!

Looking forward to starting my classes in the next couple of weeks and then finally finishing up work!!

look after yourselves all!

Hi....

Had our third trimester scan today and found out our baby girl is actually a baby boy....

He's the right size, healthy.... and i'm definitely happy about that.... but tonight when looking at the baby room, the wardrobe.... I couldn't help but cry......

Been so used to the idea of a baby girl.... feel like the doc just threw a spanner in the works.....I guess at least we didn't have to wait till he was born to find out.

Hope everyone's well.....

Regards,
T

Hi everyone! My husband and I are expecting our first on the 4th of June. We found out about our little girl when both of us were going through very hard times, and we can't wait to meet her. We're the first of our friends to marry, let alone have children, so it's great to talk to other parents/to be.We live in Reservoir and are going to the Mercy, but most of our appointments have been shared care.

Hope everyone's little ones are going well!
