Thanks, Joanne! I will mainly be using little lambs cotton (and 2 bamboo) and bamboo and cotton terries. I also have some btp, and was considering meos. I am under 5ft, and am hoping that the docs are all wrong in worrying about me having a big baby :hohoho: :hohoho: ! I don't think it'll be a 9lb-er, but you never know! :shock: Am hoping he will be more like 7-8lb. :|

Have you had your growth chart though yet that estimates the weight of your baby? I got mine a few weeks after my 20wk scan...
Or is that just a Manchester thing?

Here they give you the growth chart at the same time as the 20 week scan! Though I don't trust em, they said Summer was going to be nearly 10lb, and she was only 7lb8

We didn't get anything like that either. Must be by borough.

Hi Steph, yes I did get that, but am struggling to even get an appointment with my mw for the 25 week appointment. Appointments are only on Thursdays at the main GP surgery from 1:30pm and I can only do after 3pm as Robin has the car and can't get back from giving lectures til then. I phoned today, but now will have to phone next Thursday to see if anyone has booked the 2:45pm slot on the 12th Feb so I can have the 3pm slot, or later (there can't be any gaps). I guess she will see the fundal growth chart and do it then. I've not seen her since the 18th October. Feeling utterly cheesed off with her today, after doing a u-turn on my home birth. I just hope I don't get her on the day- she's let us down too many times.

I got mine at the 20 week scan, too, Hanna, and I don't trust them either. Sadly as I'm short they'll be reading even more into it. I want them all to s*d off, lol! :twisted:
