Pregnancy diary feature for PP

i made sure i stocked up the cupboards and frezzer with easy to cook food, things i could whip up in 10mins sort of thing as i knew once the baby was here i wouldn't have time. i also done all the washing and ironing in the house, i used to iron as i needed but i knew time would be nil with a new baby.
The other thing, quite vain, i dyed my eyelashes and bought my self a tinted face mosturiser, and waxed every hairy part of my body, got my hair cut and nails chopped off and mancuried. I felt as if i looked a little better with no effort.
i done all this and will be doing it all again in the last few weeks of pregnancy.
oh i also bought my self some really nice pj's as i wanted to look and feel better when people came to see me.

  • Great picture Kristy xx
  • aw thanks, it's the only one i got lol, and i don't look that good on it but what the hell. i'm the one thats always taking the pics to.
  • That is a lovely picture of you all,and great tips to.

    Mine is i packed my hospital bag a few months in advance as everyone was sure id be early but ended up being a week late,always prepare!!
    Also my hubby felt a little left out apart from the scans so we went clothes shopping and i let him to choose an outfit for the baby,regardless of size.
  • Kristy that is a really nice picture of the three of you.

    My tips would be to make sure you rest loads before the baby comes. Everybody told me to but i thought it would be fine as i would just sleep when she did. But things didn't work out like that.
    I would also say to spend quality time with your partner, as once the baby comes it is hard finding time to enjoy each others company.

    I'm afraid i didn't dp all the usual preperations like packing my bag etc. I only packed my bag 3 days before hollie arrived and she was 10 days late. I don't know what i would have done had she arrived early or on time.
  • Great picture Kristy, you look great and so do the children!

  • Mine is take a variety of sizes of baby clothes in with you!! I had Lydia who was only 5lb 9ozs when she was born so nothing fitted her and dh had to go out and buy a few bits to fit. When i had George it was a similar story, only this time round to be told to expect a small baby (and we took small baby clothes) and when he arrived he weighed 8lb 7.5ozs! So again dh had to go and buy some "larger" clothes!
