Re: The Bump Blog!!Your poor Mum Sandyann. My kids have all been quite late to get teeth - 9 months has been my earliest tooth!! But have not been bitten too much, so I am lucky in that respect.
Nicholas is seems to be starting to wean himself. Last night before bed, he mucked around so much I took him off and just had cuddles. But he did wake at 5am and I gave in and gave him a feed. He then slept through till 6.30am, so well worth the feed!!! He will be 19 months this week. My baby is getting big!!!

Re: The Bump Blog!!Bethduck I put on 16 and 18kgs respectively from a starting point of about 56-60... thats a 25% weight gain. Ten years later I am fitter than ever and probably in the best shape of my life! So I agree no need to worry... but try not to go overboard if you can help it... (I couldnt - I was eating lolly snakes by the packetful in the last month...)

Re: The Bump Blog!!Hi Bethduck, the main thing is to just eat healthily even if it is a bit more than usual.As you say, you are growing another little person. :)
My eldest daughter craved icberg lettuce when she was pregnant and would sit and eat a whole lettuce in one go. :D
I used to eat pumpkin scones with mashed banana on them. :>0

Re: The Bump Blog!!Wow! 26 weeks now! Has it gone fast. Thought I should check in and let you know how its all going.
I have definately 'popped' now and look pregnant (happened over the past 2 weeks). I have been getting a few minor leg cramps but other than that, have been good.
Last couple of day I have been sneaking in naps (definately close to that 3rd trimester now!) and am getting more tired, but to be expected. Luckily there is nothing worth watching, so I am going to bed much earlier.
Spent a fabulous 3 days in Melbourne last weekend with my Mum and sisters for a girlie weekend. We managed to pack in enough - yum cha, pedicures and manicures, indian dinner, footy (Geelong v Collingwood - not a great result but so much fun to get to a match after about 13 years!), met one of my sister's new boyfriend, high tea and some shopping! Was so lovely to not be responsible for anyone but myself for a couple of days!
Hope you are travelling well Siam and all the other yummy mummys to be out there in WIU land!
