Hi Eve,<br><br>It's a good idea to swap notes. Today I am 24 + 4 weeks, what are you?We were not very organised for ages, as we hadn't a clue what equipment we needed (well, when you haven't done this before...) also, it took ages to sink in, now we are at this stage and eveyone notices your bump it's finally sunk in.<br>We have to be pretty organised because of where we live...Shetland Islands, so you have to start ordering things smartish.<br>I have painted the nursery, got cutains up, DH laid a new carpet, put the nursery furniture up, the cotbed arrived the other day and the pram/buggie/car seat, I feel funny having them in the house, but we don't have much choice because everything has to be shipped up.<br>We are going to Aberdeen to have the baby, as I feel it is safer and don't want to take any unnecessary risks.<br><br>We have a few names, not many as DH is having a laugh most of the time....'Ichabod'...have you ever heard anything more ridiculous in your life? Have you thought of any names? bought anything etc...<br>I'm even having a bash at knitting!!!!<br>Where are you having your baby?<br>Speak soon<br>Scorry x<br><br>[Edited by scorry on 04-May-03 13:37]

Hiya, hope you don't mind me butting in but I am also one of the Xmas miracles so we are all around the same date. I am 23wks & 4days due 28/8. It has well and truly sunk in now and my ever expanding bump is a very visable welcome reminder. As for organised.... no chance. I think in my heart I was waiting for the 20wk scan before I really allowed myself to start preparing. As yet I have not bought a thing but DH and I did go pram 'looking' yesterday - so many choices it's confusing. The shop assistant really brought it home how quickly the time is going by, saying that I really needed to order by the end of the month given the summer holiday period etc - there I was thinking I had loads of time and suddenly I need to start shopping - Mothercare here I come!!! Started to try out a few names to see how they sound and am armed with a pile of baby/nursery catalogues so think I will sit on the sofa with my feet up reading up on whats needed tonight and tomorrow, whilst Dh gets on with clearing out the nursery ready to paint - bliss!!!<br>Anyway happy shopping<br>lulu

Scorry & Lulu<br><br>Well at least the three of us made it to here!<br><br>I'm 25 weeks today and due on 17th August. We live in Oxford so will be going to the John Radcliffe to have baby - just happens to be where I work too!<br><br>We have names;- Adam James, and Abigail Louise, but the hormones have kicked in and I really wanted Noah last week so there is plenty of time for us to change our minds yet!<br><br>We started decorating the nursery about 2 weeks ago - painted the room lemon and DH was going to draw a small picture of Winnie the Pooh in one corner. I cam home to a 2metres tall x 3 metres wide mural! It shows Winnie, Tigger, Roo, Eeyore and Piglet stood on a bridge throwing pooh sticks into the stream below and is totally mad and fantastic!!!<br><br>As far buying things my mother in law seems to be taking care of that! She has bought a crib and bedding and a 3 wheel pram/ carseat travel system! Feel quite guilty the only other thing we have done is order a cot bed. It feels scary buying things - we have all waited so long. Dh keeps looking at me and saying he has never known me smile so much! Seem to have a grin on my face the whole time!<br><br>Wow Scorry you live in the Shetlands? That must have been a nightmare when you were on treatment? How long will it take you to get to the hospital? A friend of mine is expecting and set on Hamish if they have a little boy!!<br><br>I'm going through the mothercare catalogue tonight panicking about all the stuff we need and haven't got!!!<br><br>By the way - how is the bump feeling and the clothing dilema? Have bought a few smart maternity clothes as I work in an office now, and love the bump!!!<br><br>Bye for now<br>Love Eve<br>xxx

Hi<br>Christmas miracle number 4 here. <br>I'm 24+5 today and am due 22nd August.<br>We've ordered the nursery furniture which luckily my parents and DH's mother is paying for and have worked-out which pram we want (you need an engineering degree to work out what they do !!) and one of my aunts has started buying us baby bits which are soooooooo sweet.<br>I sat down last night with all the catalogues and worked out a list of everything we need to buy and how much it will cost...boy did that hurt!!!<br>We know we are expecting a boy and have called him Joshua. Feels really wonderful to be able to relate to the bump as a person now rather than an "it".<br>So pleased everyone else that the Christmas Angels touched are doing so well, still spooky how it happened for us all isn't it.<br>LOL and hugs to all<br>Terri<br>xxx<br>
