    Just wondered what you are considering buying for baby or yourself.

    I'd really like some maternity cropped jeans, I LIVE in jeans but am concious I need to get my legs out this summer being pregnant and all! lol I'm slimmer and suprised myself by wearing a skirt and actually liking my legs in it last week :D
    I'm thinking top wise of the strappy ones that have a good bust coverage but are baggy underneath - that should do me for the summer :) And then after that it'll be autumn / winter so can invest in proper maternity stuff.

    Baby wise I'm thinking of the Asda baby event Steam steriliser as it's down to £25! But honestly it's a bit early so i'm not 100% sure if I should just wait. :confused:

    I'll have to tell you mine after the baby show next weekend!

    We've picked a pram system, my mother wants to get it for us so its a Mamas & Papas Ultima, haven't decided on colour.

    I've just picked up some maternity clothes through freecycle, and have bought some from eBay today. I have a definate little bump now so don't think my clothes will last much longer.

    I like the tommee tippee bottles and steriliser, so we will probably go with those closer to the time.

    :) congrats on the bump! My tummy has definately expanded since I was on CD unfortunately! lol I can't pretend i'm not a little gutted but will be nice when I know it's baby and not just bloating or me! :D
    I'm trying not to look 'fat' for the first 6 months.. that happened with my eldest and I didn't help it by dressing in baggy clothes I must admit.
    Will have to browse ebay :)

    Hubby and I saw a buggy we'd like, we'd like a lightweight one with a seperate car seat, so far anyway. :) We did this with our foster babies over the years and it worked well for being flexible. :)

    I've ordered my pram, I got the quinny buzz it's being delivered on the 31st July. I bought the tommee tipee steam steriliser a few weeks ago and a friend gave me a bouncy chair & moses basket, just need to get a new mattress and some sheets for that. Bought a couple of packs of nappies and some wipes, so think I've got most of it.

    I need to get some clothes for the baby and a baby monitor and I think that will do. Will go and buy anything else I need after baby arrives, then I will know to buy pink or blue.

    Have you got cotton wool for the meconium (spell check) it works much better than wipes I've found (with warm water). :) just for the first few days.

    I didn't know you could buy mattresses for moses baskets, we have been given a lovely moses basket but I'd feel more comfortable with a new mattress in it.

    Ooh I forgot about cotton wool. Yes you can buy moses basket matresses in mothercare for about £10.

    Yes I bought a new moses basket mattress at Mothercare but be careful as there are different sizes.
