4D Baby Photoshoot

For the third time, we found ourselves having a scan at the request of the NHS who wanted to be ubber precautions following the underweight/overweight shenanigans over the past two weeks.

This time, using a more precise method than an old school tape measure, we were told that we were no longer of concern, and to that we were neither under nor over, but were bang in the middle of our pregnancy growth model.

Maybe a bit blasé considering what we’ve gone through to get to this stage but we both seemed to feel there was nothing to worry about – a parents instinct?

We think it’s a boy!

Man those scans are ugly! They’re very clever but why anyone would actually pay for a 4d baby scan is past me! Still, being in the NHS, we were allowed to take a quick snap using our mobile phone – you have to have one perk working for them!

We don’t know, but from the 4D image we saw on the screen during the scan, Pancake looked just like me (i.e. bald). Seriously it just had boy looks about it, something even I had to admit to – secretly I still hope think it’s going to be a girl!

Pancake was lying in such a way that we weren’t able to confirm one way or another, which was good, as again we asked not to be told.

eBay Monitoring

Sadly we’ve lost out on a number of eBay auctions for Stokke MyCarriers over the past few days mainly because we’re sticking to you limit. Around the £70 mark is what we’re happy to pay (with a small addition for P&P) any more and we’d rather pay full price for something in pristine condition with guarantee.

Every few days another pops up, so we’re still holding out hope and there’s no rush yet.

Would it be wise to watch Gumtree too?


NEC Baby Show – Our thoughts

We’re just back from the Baby Show held at Birminghams NEC! Feet are up, coffee and tea poured and now its time to see what we’ve gathered on our trip out 🙂

Firstly “Tiring” is the foremost word that comes to mind if I was to be asked to describe the Baby Show in NEC Birmingham which we’ve just returned from.

NEC Baby Show Lowlights

The £10.40 per ticket (40% discounts widely available online), we both thought was about right for a show that potentially offered so much. However, we weren’t prepared for the additional £12 car park charge, which didn’t seem to be mentioned anywhere and came as a surprise when we arrived.

Considering parking is free when you attend the Baby & Toddler Show at Manchester, I personally don’t think it’s justified and hope the organisers seek a better deal for future shows.
