I don't suppose parents these days know what a terry nappy is!

When I see all these fancy nappies and other baby paraphenalia advertised I wonder how my kids survived without them, how did we manage? :shock: :roll:

Live long and Prosper.

My girls were both 'terry' girls. :D And I can still remember how to fold them - the nappies that is, not my girls. :lol:

Cherish - can you get you little 'uns to help you rather than hinder you? Turn it into a game perhaps? My eldest was two when my youngest was born and she was a huge help to me. I used to joke that instead of a guide dog I had a 'guide child'. She really was great - especially as my hubbie would never put things back where they belonged (still doesn't :roll: ) and I couldn't see well enough to look round for them myself.

Stick little bells to their backs with safety pins, then you can here them. Put them where they cannot reach them. It works apparently. Then if they play hide and seek you can find them. I had my third when the eldest was 2 and a half, tiredness in late pregnancy is normal, and the more kids the more tired you are. I am single muming it at the moment, hubby is off playing with anthrax, and I am exhausted, I am also not pregnant and the kids are now 7. 6. and 5. I figure kids cause tiredness.
As far as the blood vessels and eye issues, see what happens after bub is born. Your eyes may settle a bit. Not wearing lenses in the eye with the blood vessels may reduce the inflammation and cause them to receed with time. They can do that. My sister and I both had worse vision in pregnancy, and had to have a bit of work done on our grafts. Most people have tummy tucks, we had cornea tucks.

No need for bells with my daughetr, she never shuts up long enough :D

When she does try, she needs both hands to try and hide the giggles which I can still here.

The dogs usually give her location away too :D
