Was browsing Harrods today and in amongst the £15,000 beds I found another diaper bag I like. I'm not a huge fan of Juicy Couture but this is very similar to the bag I am after...

Nylon Baby Tote, $298USD on http://www.juicycouture.com/shoponline/kids/baby/babybags/prodZ0B4A

Not much new is going on with me, trying to decide if I should get the BabyJogger City Select from the USA, it converts to a double the same way the iCandy Peach does (inline double) but is a lot more modular and better at it, and slightly cheaper, or if I can manage an 18 month old and a newborn with just a normal pushchair and sling/baby carrier.

And a 27 week update :
How far along are you?
27 weeks, 3days

What symptoms are you experiencing?
Super heartburn. Joyus Round Ligament pain every few days. And - some stretchmarks on my thigh. Although I hesitate to mention these as they are surely not a side effect/symptom of pregnancy, surely more related to my overeating.

How are you feeling?
Really, really awesome. Think I'm having the worlds easiest pregnancy (Sorry everyone).

Any Dr. Appointments / ultrasounds / tests this past week and how did they go?
Yeah my 25w appointment with my midwife (uh yeah, at 27w). Went fine. Got annoyed because I didn't want her to measure the heartbeat with the doppler but she just stood there grinning like a numpty.

Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc?)

Any questions you want to ask?
Is a bouncer really neccessary for a baby? I can definately see the attraction, like so you can have a shower etc, is it just so you can put them somewhere safe? What is the difference between putting them on a baby mat? Is it so when they can roll etc they don't hurt themselves if you look away?

Any food cravings?
Food eating has been terrible I need to get my diet under control I'm scared I will get GD. My fingers are a little puffy and I am eating way too many carbs. Need to regain some control.

27 week bump


Lovely to see a pic of you. What a nice neat bump.
I like the changing bag.
I would definitely get a bouncer but dont spend much...a cheap one is probsbly better than an all singing one. We got a dead cheap one in Tesco last time. You will use it a lot...babies dont like to be laid down all the time especially after 3 months. We used ours for weaning too snd loads to calm, soothe and nap in.
