I'm between 18 and 20 weeks with my first, and I still find myself looking for advice!
First off--clothes! My pants are starting to get really uncomfortable to wear, and most of the time end up unbuttoned and covered by a hoodie or a loose belt. I know I'm probably going to need to look into more comfortable clothes, but I don't want to go shopping and buy a bunch of stuff that won't fit in two months! What are your suggestions/advice?
Second--Travel! Have any of you traveled while pregnant? I'll be between 5-6 months when the hubby and I fly home for two weeks. I know about walking and drinking a lot of fluids while on the flight, is there anything else I should know? OH! And a friend of mine wants me to have a baby shower back home for all my friends that I have there, but I'm worried it would be tacky (especially with how early in pregnancy I'll be) but I was thinking of something like a potluck dinner where we can all get together and talk about baby stuff (since most are already moms :D)
Lastly--Any advice on what to register for and what not to register for? I plan on CD'ing so that gets rid of the "lots of diapers!" thing, but what else? Are bottle warmers necessary, wipe warmers? When should you get a high chair? Picking out a carseat?
(can you tell I'm a planner LOL!)
