Well done for keeping it up so long! Running has felt weird to me for such a long time, I miss it :(

I don't know about running but i use a support belt from Amazon that's in 3 pieces (a piece round back and sides, one around front and one over top of bump) and goes together with Velcro - it offers good support for my back when lifting and doing classes. Apparently Paula Radcliffe used one like this :// throughout her pregnancy but I don't think that would be enough support for me to prevent jiggly weirdness feelings.

I've switched to swimming and while it isn't the same at all, it's actually a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would be and apparently swimming in 3rd tri helps to get baby into the right position for birth and keep them there!

I realized today that we own no less than 6 pregnancy books, but ZERO newborn care books. Sooo today I bought one: Heading Home with your Newborn! I'd also love to know what y'all are reading; any that y'all highly recommend!

thanks for sharing and reminding me to practice!! i use the john kabat zinn stuff there's some tracks on amazon (not for free but they have been a good investment for me. Here's what i use: I took a local 'mindfullness stress reduction class' at the beginning of pregnancy and its been great. Not pregnancy specific but solid mindfulness technique. of course it ain't a practice if i don't practice, i will try to get back to it tonight : D

I worked at a daycare and saw lots of diaper rash. Have you started cleaning him with warm wet paper towels instead of wipes? Then giving his bum a little time to air dry, using another diaper to fan his butt? The alcohol in wipes sucks for baby bottoms. Also, cornstarch beats baby powder if you need something to keep moisture out. :)

Also, TRIPLE PASTE is the bomb dot com.... only this kind:

No other diaper rash cream works like Triple Paste. It's expensive but you can get it at major drugstores and Target and Walmart I believe. It will stick to the bottom and not the diaper! :D Good luck!

Hmmm let me get back to you about epigenetics reading in particular, but if it's piqued your interest in genetics as a whole I can recommend things like The Gene and Genome as a start

I keep trying to post this as a separate post, but for some reason it won't show up when I do. So I'll just post it here instead:

So when going through lists of things for our hospital bag, I came across the suggestion of a Baby Book so you can get your baby's footprints right in the book at the hospital. That reminded me that I wanted to have some kind of book or scrapbook of at least my baby's first year, since I am terrible at documenting stuff like this! I've been looking around online at a few, but it can be really hard to decide.

Basically, I know I need to pick up a pre-made one that I'll just fill in the blanks. I am a terrible scrapbooker (I've tried in the past, it just doesn't come naturally to me), so I need as much guidance as I can get. I also don't like to write a ton, so I'd prefer one that is mainly focused on pictures and just little tidbits about milestones and stuff, rather than big pages to write a lot of text.

These are the ones I've found so far that I like: 1 2 3

What do you guys think? Are any of you planning on getting a Baby Book for your little one? Have you already bought one? And if you have, (or have looked through some others) how did you decide?

Also, as a side tip: I found this little journal for documenting your child's medical past (vaccinations, past illnesses, etc.) while I was looking at Baby Books on Amazon. I thought it was a really great idea to have all of that in one place, so I think I'm at least going to pick up that one :)

I love these sleep bras!

They run a tad small in the band though, so size up if you're on the fence, especially if you're in the F/G/H size range like me. My boobs have been so sensitive since I started taking progesterone supplements at 4 weeks, so I've had to sleep in them at night or else I wake myself up in pain from rolling over my own chest. The front clasp is really nice too.

We are a 20 minute drive from the hospital and husband will not leave my side, so I'd like to get everything in. I'm a notorious overpacker, too, but I'd rather have something I don't need than have not have something that I do need.

I picked my car seat because it fit in my car and had a nice fabric on it. Have it with my first and like it, so I'm getting the same seat twice. Graco Milestone All-in-One Convertible Car Seat, Gotham

I originally spent big bucks on the Britax B-Agile/B-Safe travel system and felt like it was overpriced for the quality and overhyped here. Turns out convertible seats are also for newborns, I didn't learn that the first time. I guess I assumed there was like a 20+ pound minimum. Nope, as soon as they weigh enough to leave the hospital, you can put them in a convertible seat. I will miss the convenience of clicking the infant seat into the base, but I have an ergo carrier, so I can just use that for running errands.

I had that earlier in the 2nd tri and it was horrible. It acts up occasionally still and my doctor said it is most likely from the extra weight in my breasts and abdomen giving me slightly different/worse posture.

Honestly, the only things that helped were a really intense prenatal massage and this baby:

I also try to keep an eye on my posture now and it seems to help, but it's harder than it sounds!

It's not just a pillow, it's amazing. Snoogle, traditional I'd definitely get a cover too, just in case, but if you're the crafty type there are patterns online for them too.

I'm reading The Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy instead of What to Expect. I couldn't stand the tone of the author of What to Expect. The Mayo Clinic has a first year guide, too, so I'll be sticking with their series!

u/alecatq2 · 1 pointr/JulyBumpers2017

Hmm, this is the Amazon link for the one I have I'm not sure how to check the availability in the U.K. The "What to Expect" book scared me with doom and gloom. This is very data driven advice which I like.
