    Lol, these posts are really hilarious. Either way, I expect to get exercise. Hopefully I'll shed that fat...

    Not to rain on any parades but I lived in a walk up -5th floor - and there is NO WAY I could have managed it whilst heavily pregnant and certainly not with an actual baby. Carrying a baby in a pushchair (even a light one) plus nappy bags, shopping, drinks for mum, up and down 4 flights of stairs would be incredibly incredibly hard - especially in the first weeks after birth. I would really recommend having a look to see if you can move somewhere with a lift before you get too big.

    I'm reading some of these replies with envy! My LO hates the pram and using it is just one big screamfest! There are lots of stairs and stroller unfriendly places in HK, if you are out by yourself it's a nightmare. I have to say the Boba 3G carrier has been a lifesaver for us, it's not as hot and sweaty as you think, we manage to walk the dogs twice a day with it. I don't think you need to rush out and buy a pram, just wait and assess things once your baby arrives.
