Kmalia - Congrats on popping out ;-)
Kharel - Not really sure what to suggest - do you have a baby you could borrow to put in the buggy whilst you practice pusing it around? ;-) The Maclaren MX3's are very light compared to a lot of three wheelers and you def got it for a bargain.
Well I've ordered a Maclaren XT from Mothercare online in the UK as they have a sale on and it works out loads cheaper than in HK - I'll bring it back with me in August. For any of you Brits out there who have visitors coming over with empty suitcases, Mothercare online in the UK has a sale on at the mo and if you put the code EM8 into the discount box when you're at the checkout, you get an extra 20% off!
Just out of interest, which steriliser are you ladies buying?

You guys are all so much more organised than me - I've gotta get my act together!!
I'm sick today :( I've been sneezing and coughing and my glands are so swollen, it hurts to swallow!! I don't know what I can take when I'm pregnant - I know I could research it but I might just go see my GP tomorrow and get something off her...

nicolejoy - i am actually getting over the exact same thing! swolen glands, lots of sneezing, not fun.
I went to my homeopathic doctor which set me up with some cold and flu drops, drank LOTS of water and hot tea and used some saline nasal drops - you can make them at home by dissolving 1/4 teaspoon salt in 8ounces of water. Place a few drops in each nostril, wait 5 to 10 minutes, and then gently blow your nose. It all seemed to work because I'm feeling better after three days of yuckiness.
good luck and feel better!

I think I caught it off one of the kids I taught on Saturday. She was sick - but her mother brought her with a face mask that kept falling off. So the girl kept coming up to me for me to put it back on her!! I don't think that the face mask did much in the way of stopping to germs from spreading!!

Baby 20 week scan
The baby wasn't so shy during this scan - it's a girl!!!!!
We're super elated although my hubby seems more scared then anything (or maybe just pre-occupied).
And I've finally gained some weight!! I'm up 5 pounds!!!! Bigger and better things are around the corner I'm sure (ie. junk in the trunk).
Cheers - b

22 weeks today and I'm still the same weight that I was when I found out I was pregnant. I had a couple of kg I wanted to lose though...
Trying to plan the mother/MIL's trip over here... we're gonna put them in a hotel because a) that way we can "settle in" with baby, and b) there's not any way we could comfortably put them all up here - and I think they'd be more "hindrance" than "help" if they were staying here ;)
I think we're gonna schedule their trip for around 2 weeks after the due date - the doctor at Tsan Yuk said that they induce at 41 weeks, so the baby should be born by then!!
