Egg - I got some lovely babygrows from Next. They do 'little baby' size which is for babies up to 5lb.
Lasha - Well done on getting so far, you must be huuuuugeeeee! I was saying yesterday i don't know how women carry twins to term I feel so heavy now and i don't think I'm that big for a twin Mum to be.
Emmett - I get that inner upper legs by the groin pain and have had it from quite early on. I think it's just ligaments moving around making everything a bit unstable. My midwife said it's normal, if it gets worse it's that pelvic thingy (can't remember the name) that pg women get. DH says I look like I've pooed myself when I get up sometimes
i feel knackered today got work soon,wish i could stay at home.my heads all fuzzy
sat here watching tv last night and thought i could feel movement higher up and put my hand on my tummy next to me belly button area.and i felt kicks/hits on the outside for the first time so i got dhs hand and after awhile there was little kicks then a big one and dh felt them i even felt it through dhs hand
are you ladies getting small stuff then??for upto 5lbive only bought nb stuff.should we buy smaler aswell thenbought the sterilizer yesturday i keep saying to dh its too soon to get most stuff .what things do we need to get at this stagei havnt a clue.i havnt looked after a nb before can anyone give me a list of things we need to geti want to bf but want to express aswell so dh can feed now and again,what size bottles at firstwe are getting tommy tippee stuff.oh its so confusing
Emma - I've got constant pelvic/ligament pain, takes me ages to get up off the sofa, I look and feel like an old cripple! It hurts when I walk too much and when I sit too long, so can't win What's so puzzling is that it can't be weight as I've only put on 2lbs! Can't sleep either
Hayley - Babies R Us catalogue also has a list of essentials in the back, I tick them off when we've bought something. My mums bought loads of clothes from newborn to 1year, if they arrive really early then I guess we could buy a few smaller than newborn things, hopefully they won't tho hun I'm hoping to express feed too but can't decide on what pump to get?? You're right it is all confusing.
Wendy - Congrats on your 12wk milestone hun, we also had a private sexing scan at 16+5 You should also get a 12wk scan.
Hello to everyone else
Did anyone go to the babyshow in Birmingham yesterday? There were some great bargains! And lots of gorgeous twin bubbas! We bought the Icandy pear, carrycots and car seats for £700, £150 cheaper than all local quotes. Also we've bought all the nursery furniture, so can't wait to move house and set the nursery up now, I'm sooooooo excited!!
Forgot to say did you get your results back that time you had swabs etc taken i only ask as my gp detected protein in my urine friday as i new i felt weird downstairs so she sent another sample off to a lab so should hear back by weds
Emmet - When are gonna start buying big items like nursery furniture and stuff, my DH wants to wait cos of our history?? Poor you with groin pain, I get it when I am on my feet for long periods of time so bet it will get worse when I go back to work on Friday !!
Wendy - Has you hospital not offered you a nuchal / dating scan between 11 and 14 weeks?? Its unusual if they haven't with it being twins??
Maria - check you out being organised with things wished we could say the same, DH won't let us buy anything until I am 24 weeks !!
Hayley - I am gonna get the under 5lb clothing (aswell as newborn) as I was on 5lb 12oz when I was born and DH was a small baby, so have a feeling my twins will be in the small side.
Donna - Hiya hun how you coping with things? You are doing really well!!
coughsweel - hiya hun, how are you doing today?
Well I am making the most of my last few days of work, I am back on Friday and have heard it is busy !!!
Enjoy your day everyone.

Emmet - Oh good, I thought we was being over cautious have seen so many people buying big things early on, one girl I came across bought her cot before she was 8 weeks and poor girl ended up m/c'ing and having to get rid off it. Would hate to be in that situation wouldn't you?
Supposed to be working in my office today but it's reveiws time and putting off paying my minions any more money
Anyway just wanted to join in with all the small baby talk, my twins were 37 weeks and 6lb 5oz and 5lb 2oz and we dressed them in the mamas and papas petite baby clothes which are gorgeous. My first DD was born at 40+1 and weighed 7lbs 11oz and she wore the petite baby stuff as she was long and skinny. I also have a few boy / girl new baby outfits if anyone is interested - can sort them out before i move house on friday.
Sarah30 - just noticed on your ticker that you were treated at NURTURE too, thats where i had my treatment when i got my twins. I love NURTURE so much, i mentioned to the lady who did my accupuncture that i thought James H (what is his surname) was quite scrummy just as she mentioned that she was really good friends with him and his wife - i could have died.
Amanda - I know what you mean about Mr H, he does have a certain something at your accupuncturist knwing him I have to say Mr fenning also has a certain something abouth him I do love that clinic, they have done so well by me, I have a board that I started in the notinghamshire section where a few of us nurture girls are posting, you should come and join us !! Glad to see you have healthy twins from nurture well done you, hoping I get through this time
Well, I left my shopping till about 30wks... it just seemed like the right thing to do. Anyway, it doesn't take much time to shop for babies, you can do it all in a week! The smallest size of clothes I bought was newborn cos I was advised they'd outgrow it within a wink. Luckily at my last scan (36wks), they were abt 5lbs 4ounces so, I think I'm safe there.
I hope everyone's well... Surprisingly, I'm still able to walk - at 36+3days and I still have another 2wks to go, so I better shape up!
Meanwhile, has anyone ever used the mothercare folding bath stand with the bath? How did you dispose of the water if you wanted to during the bath? Don't I need a hose or something
I'd be grateful for your inputs on that.
