Quick scan and Babyshow update

Well we had our 20 week scan today and baby is fine, good size, head and spine are all fine but they were laying on their tummy again and refused to move so we have to go back for them to finish the rest of the scan – am I’m hoping they can then tell us if it’s a boy or girl! I did have a feeling that this would be the case but luckily enough I guess we get to see them all over again so I’ll just have to hope the appointment comes through quickly and baby is in a better position!

And we went to the Babyshow yesterday – I am SO tired! Up at 6, left just after 7, arrived at 9, had a lovely time and then left at 1ish as I was exhausted and Chloe was sleeping in the pram. Still it was lovely, said hello to the Fill Your Pants gang, bought a ton of lovely stuff (pics to come on that) and we ordered our Xplory!!! Am so so excited, it’s something I’ve wanted since I was pregnant with Chloe and now thanks to some generous family members helping out we can get one! We do actually still have a few things on our to buy list for baby but it kind of all feels real now that we’ve seen baby again and have bought a big item.

But all the excitement from the last few days have left me feeling so tired so I will get some rest (OH had the whole day off today so he will be cooking dinner tonight!) and will do a better round up of things in a day or so. Oh and the sun is finally out so fingers crossed it’s here to stay!!

    Just popped on to find out if you knew what you were having yet, and seen this! How frustrating. Any idea when you may find out now?? x

      Oh you know what, there’s been so much going on I forgot to post!! Well the second scan was all fine except that bump had legs crossed and together, sonographer *thought* it was a girl but didnt sound sure at all. So we’re going with girl but might have a private scan at some point just to be sure and to check that bump wont be making a 32 week appearance like Chloe!

      Hope you’re well xx

    Thanks for your baby show update. I am thinking on visiting one myself but am interested in the Xplory and was wondering if you got a good deal? Can you give me a little more info?

      Hello, I think it was around 16% off with the cup holder thrown in for free- tbh I went with a price list and if they weren’t going to do at least 15% off then I was going to buy it online! Mothercare and some other places (Kiddiecare and Kiddisave I think) generally do 10 to maybe 20% off sometimes (and if you use a cashback site you can claim a bit back!). So just make sure you know you’re getting a good deal as they tend to group things into a package and then give a discount on that IYGWIM and you might not want say the carrycot or whatever comes with it!

      But we love ours, Chloe loves being in it and I cant wait till baby is here as well! We also ended up getting the matching carseat and isofix base (from Mothercare with 15% off).

      Oh but one other tip is go on the last day of the show as most of the retailers dont want to have to pack up the demo products to take back. So when I asked, they were going to give us a brown Xplory (that had only been out of the box for the 3 days) with a few extras for a good price to take away at the end of the show. But we really wanted the purple, but it’s worth asking the stands when you get there so if you do want one you can reserve it and collect it at the end! The same goes for the Tripp Trapps and I assume the other big baby goods 😉

      Hope that helps and good luck on getting a good deal and let me know if you do!
