We're looking to buy the silver cross freeway in ebony lady in the shop said to watch out as alot of places will tell you that you need the isofix base but infact you dont they just want to make money, i'd say most car seats can be strapped in with the seatbelt.The lap bit across the car seat and the bit that goes over your chest around the back of the car seat xXx
Mrs Gallagher, the 16th week app is basic, they just took urine test, and blood pressure and listened to heartbeat.

Hi Ladies, how are you all doing - it's been a bit quiet on this thread a little while!
We have our 21 week scan this Monday, still feeling a bit anxious, and hope everything will be ok. We'll buy lods more after this if everything is OK.
When are your next scans, how are you feeling, bumps growing... x
Hi lovely ladies! I was just thinking the same that it has been quiet on here.
We have our 20 week scan on Monday at 9am - eeeeekkkk! so excited I could burst! we are going to find out but I am pretty sure it is a girl - has anyone else done the Bicarb test? you put a teaspooon on Bicarb in a glass and pee on it and if it fizzes its a boy and if it doesn't do anything it is a girl - about 82 women tried it on another forum I am on and 96% of results were correct!
no, have not tried it, but how to you pee on a glass with bicarb, do you mean put a teaspoon and pee in the glass instead of adding water? It that's the case, I'll try it!!
Good luck for your scan too NowMrsWood.
NowMrswood you must be sooo excitd!! ours is next thurs 3 days after yours when ill be 19+6. most are surprised we want to want to find out the sex not sure why but i want to be able to picture the baby and plan!
Good morning ladies!
Well I can officially say that all the tests and old wives tales are rubbish as they all pointed us to a girl and we are having a boy!!! so so happy!
He is a little on the small side so I need to go back at 26 weeks to check on his growth but apart from that he is fine!
With the bicarb test you put a teaspoon on bicarb in a glass and pee on it, if it fizzes it is supposed to be a boy and if it does nothing it is supposed to be a girl, mine did nothing!
Back from the hospital for our 21 week scan and all ok. I have an anterior placenta, which explains why I have not been able to feel many quicks and the placenta is lying a bit low, so need to go back at 32 weeks, but nothing to worry about with the baby, so relieved and happy.
We also found our pram (new) but cheaper by £200 and a carrycot for a bargain! so going to get that now!
Oh, and we did not find our if boy or girl, just going to get some neutral/white stuff to start with.
MrsHappy, that is great to hear. I felt very little kicks, almost pushes on my side last night, but very gentle, but i am sure that is a small kick. As you say, the placenta can move.
We are also going for Icandy Peach!! we painted the nursery when me moved into our new house in December so just need to decorate it, which we will do in December.
I have an anterior placenta too, but it says on my notes it is high - don't know what that means?! I do get the odd kick but nothing that takes my breath away yet.
I think we are going to go with the Quinny Buzz travel system with the new Maxi Cosi pebble - need to take my parents to have a look as they have very kindly offered to buy it for us.
Its all so exciting
Can't wait for my scan tomorrow! has anyone had any aches or pains? and anyone attempting to sleep on left side? im finding that hard love sleeping on my back!
Hi Springbride adn mrsHappy - I have been trying to sleep on my back now for a couple of months, and although I usually end of turning around on my back, I wake up, as I find that my heart starts to beat too fast. it has something to do with the vein called the vena cava being squashed by the weight of the baby, and it restricts the blood flow to you and baby, but to you first, which is why I wake up. I had read about it somewhere. Sleeping on right, is not bad, but it is better for the blood flow to sleep on left side, apparently.
Some days, I get a bit sore on my pelvis, but usually if I have been too active.
Maybe try bending down using your legs, rather than back, when bending down.
thanks! I love my bump, and it sure is growing fast! yes, it is my first. Odd how quickly it showed, Even at 9 weeks, I had it a bit smaller than the first pic. Now it is obvious! I am 5"3, maybe that is why?
At the 22 week appointment - do you mean the abnormality one - which can be done from 18 weeks I think - well, at mine, they measured baby, looked at heart, kidneys, spine, arms, hands, feet, all organs really and ruled out that everythink ok. At the next app, which I will have when I am 24 weeks, with the midwife at my GP surgery, I think they will measure bump externally and do another urine test and blood pressure test.
hi, yeah i read aswell although not bad sleeping on right side is better on left. ive been getting achy sore pains behind left rib, feel like i pulled it getting up though, asked at scan and she said is normal all ligaments can hurt easier now! very happy now had scan and all is normal and fine and we are having a baby boy. felt quite emotional seeing the baby again and seeing my husband engrossed in watching him! makes it more real now i can think we will have a son in a bout 4 and a half months and halfway now! bought first item for baby today just some bibs but a start! we are being handed down heaps so dont wana buy anything else until seen what we will have as they outgrow clothes so quick when babies
