    What's it about?

    Back in July 2006 Bailey started this thread to help all pregnant MoneySavers and their partners save on anything pregnancy-related plus give each other moral support. It's been hugely popular and now has a long list of pregnant mothers-to-be.

    Now it's not just for those that are pregnant but also those trying to conceive and MoneySavers that have probably already given birth and yet are probably too tired to let everyone know.

    What should you do?

    As well as being a great source of tips, baby-related bargains spotted, mutual support and help MoneySavers here have also gradually built up a list, adding themselves to one of these categories (the last one, people are moved to for obvious reasons!):

    EDD (Estimated due date if you're pregnant)
    TTC (trying to conceive if you're not) we now have 2 seperate threads for people TTC - 'Trying for a Baby' and 'Trying for a baby (12+ M/not straightforward)'
    Birth List
    Probably given birth but too worn out to log on list

    If you want to add yourself to the list follow these steps:

    Click on the link at the top of this page that says "Last" (it'll take you to the last page of the discussion)
    Scroll down until you find the message with the very latest copy of the list in (if you use one further up the discussion other peoples' changes after that will be lost)
    Copy that (highlight it and click control+c)
    Click reply at the bottom of the thread to open a screen where you can past it (click control+p)
    Add yourself to the list then click save
    And don't feel shy. Introduce yourself, say hello and ask a question if you need to.

    Plus, if you're thinking of how to cut down on nappy costs remember to have a read of the Nappy MoneySaving article too and for later down the line if you need childcare first read the Childcare Vouchers article.

    Also please don't forget that this is a public forum and anyone could be reading it. Don't let this put you off discussing anything personal, just please be aware that the people posting on the thread may not be the only ones reading (it may just be that these people, aka lurkers, are too shy to post).


    If you're new to the Forum it can look scattergun but read down and remember it's a conversation, starting with first post, scrolling forward for the latest. To reply you'll need to join the Forum but it's free to do.


    This is a continuation of this thread which will be closed due to it's length.

    Hi all...just moved over here from the 'less than 12 wks' board, as my scan has dated me at 13 (My estimations weren't toooo far off, I thought I was 11+6)! Now got a DD of 25/10.

    So..hello

    Hi Bosscout

    Congratulations

    There is a 12-24 week pregnancy thread before this one (obviously you can post wherever you like!)

    I think it may be empty at the moment but if some more people will be moving up from the 12 week thread soon, should be busier again

    GTT results came back all normal as I expected really! Physio referral for my SPD/PGP really is dragging it's heels. pelvis chronic at the moment even had a few tears this week with the pain.

    Home birth team visited.... other then that all quiet on the western front so to speak!

    How is everyone else getting on?

    Hope you get the referal soon Mary!

    All ok here. OH's blood pressure is measuring very low. Last pregnancy her platelets dropped all the way through but never reached dangerous levels thankfully. Went back to normal afterwards.

    Baby was breach at growth scan which explains why all the kicks have been so low this time. But at her midwife appointment a few days later babies head was down. Kicks have been much higher since then.

    Although of course the baby could flip around multiple times before he settles into final position.

    Hi Freddie - thanks, found the other board

    Mary Hinge - I hope your physio appointment comes through soon. I was told to call up for an appointment, but this morning got a letter telling me when my appointment was! Before I'd got around to calling. Stuff seems to vary so much from place to place.

    I waited 10 weeks for my physio appointment - by the time I got it they had to give me crutches. I say I waited 10 weeks, after 10 weeks I gave up, found a private specialist who gave me advice on chasing up my nhs appointment myself as well. I'm keeping moving by restricting moving (for me!), Pilates and until the recent weather, hot baths and hot water bottles. Funnily enough I don't feel like the latter two at the moment...
