Rach42 - My fiance is the same... he thinks I have all teh answers but it has been nearly 6 years since I had a newborn - and if the pregnancy is anythign to go by - this baby will be completely different!!
Well a few of friends have popped so we ahve some gorgeous new borns around us; makes it all very real and exciting. I have 2 more due this week and I cant wait to meet their bundles of joy.
I got our pram yesterday!! It was really the only big thing we need to buy. I also was really fussy cause I think it is the item you use more than anything else. I ahve a tiny suzuki swift so I was limited in size. I was almost 99.9% sure I was getting the baby jogger city mini - then I was on the web and found valco... Oh my goodness!!
SO much fun and so many choices of prams/strollers and great prices. They also offer this cool service where you can go to the headquarters and test them all out, and in your car and play and play - then they ring around and get the best price for you at a store that suits!!
I love customer service and anyway there is a couple of brand new strollers not yet out in australia the spark and the snap... onyl the snap fitted in my car but I love it!!
Anyway I cant recommend them enough... check out their website http://www.valco.com.au/products/prams
We have had a name since before conception - LOL - but my fiance has decided to change his surname. So complicated.... he has always had negative feelings about it - as his dad changed his surname when he was very young, due to his mum giving him his step fathers name. Therefore my partner feels it has no connection to him and it is extremely difficult to spell and say. He also got teased about it.
Luckily dropping the last three letters makes it a quite normal surname and we are all very excited to have this for the new family we are creating.
Lovely to hear how everyone is enjoying this middle trimester... not long till we are on the home stretch
