    Wow. I will do my best with my mood. I don’t want to be known as an angry preggo lady.

    Preparations are underway but I cannot put together the nursery until we move into our new home. Imagine the anxiety with doing everything last minute! We move 6 weeks before the EDD!  Perhaps that is why I’m irritable at the moment.  But there is nothing I can do about that so I will just try to relax and keep shopping lol. My Mom keeps telling me to stop shopping for baby because I will get so much from the baby shower but I can’t help myself. I thank God for everything and will count my blessings. @nicole

    @salamigirl3k, necessity is most definitely the mother of invention :haha:. Who would thunk it? A blow dryer as solution to achy boobs. You just might have come up with something here  ;-)   ;-) . In fact, you might need to patent it  :mail:

     

    So sorry you’ve been cranky hun…but don’t beat yourself up about it. Those hormones are something else! Now that you’re in 3rd tri (YAY!!!), you’re in the home stretch. In a few weeks, your LO will be here  :cloud9:   :cloud9:   :cloud9:

     

    So sorry you have to move so soon to your EDD hun. But I trust my Naija brother…I’m sure you’ll be just fine! I’ll bet you won’t even have to lift a finger or even worry your pretty head about anything  :heart: .

     

    As for the shopping, hmmmm! I’m too much of a planner to depend on what could or couldn’t be, so I’m like you…and I shopped till I dropped, baby shower or no. The way I see it, what you get is an added bonus, but what if I’m not gifted that lovely Moses basket or bassinet? My advise is to buy the essentials, and leave the knick knacks for the shower.

     

    So happy to hear from you hun  :hugs:   :friends:   :heart:   :heart:

    @oluwakemine…lmao honestly I am not trying to be a stranger. I am doing very very great, feeling awesome. My baby might be a boy from the scan though it says not 100%, .my husband really wanted a lil girl😂. And we finally graduated from movement to very light kicks on Sunday. It feels great. God is such a miracle worker :wohoo:

    Hello Ladies! @oluwakemine @nicole

    It’s been a while! And a roller coaster 2nd trimester for me. Had a scare after my Cerclage and was in the hospital for almost 3 weeks. We are all fine now (to God’s glory) and I’m back at work. Food is my very present companion, all day, everyday! And Sleep. I am always sleepy. Also, just started having episodes of back aches – like by back wants to break off. But overall, we are fine, doing well and bumping greatly – God remains too faithful. I am not focusing on any 40 weeks gestation o – our target is 37 weeks and praying hard we make it till that mark by God’s special grace!

    Amen. You will make it by God’s grace @tumininu. There is really no help for that back pain but you will survive, take it as baby stretching and finding its space. God be with you on this journey. Happy bumping :plane:   :plane:   :plane:

    Hello sisters, 2nd trimester is really a ball o! Atleast so far so good. I like sleeping a lot too but I have unusual energy during the day (surprisingly). I was going to ask, is there anywhere on this blog that has a comprehensive Baby list? ( I am struggling with getting a hang of one) I have prepared a registry on Amazon though but reading up all these reviews and items can be a drag. :unsure:   :unsure:

    We now know the sex of baby, and Hubby is elated as that’s what he had dreamt of. :kiss:   :kiss:
