Great news, Chief.

My missus is currently 16 weeks pregnant with our first. She had a miscarriage back in August, so everything has been a bit heightened emotionally this time around, but all's good. Low risk is what the doctors say. Due on the 8th July. The fear hasn't hit yet, but I'm sure it will.

Parents of the forum, I need your advice! One of my colleagues is adopting a 1 year old and 3 year old in a fortnight, and her adoption leave starts at the end of next week. Whenever someone goes on maternity leave my work always makes them a 'baby box' which everyone contributes to by buying a gift for the baby. Thing is, it's pretty easy to buy things for babies and predict what new parents of babies might need, but as these children are a lot older I'm struggling for good gift ideas. What small-ish item would you suggest as a gift for parents of a 1 or 3 year old?

Books for the 3 year old could be a good one. Little hardback first words types.

For the 1 year old, I'd go for something like bodysuits as you can NEVER have enough.

Toys can be difficult, you don't know what the children are into, but certain Fisher Price toys will always be good. They can be a little expensive.

I'd personally look at things like bath toys. They don't have to be expensive, they're great fun and help to make bath time more fun. Believe me, sometimes it's a bloody chore!

Failing that, Boots vouchers! Nappies and wipes are always needed.

When we adopted our little girl ( she was 11 months old at the time) we got loads of clothes and they all came in handy, can't go wrong with that.

Anyone know to help a 2 and a half year old do a number 2? She hasn't done one for a few days and was very uncomfortable tonight but wouldn't/couldn't do one.

Anyone would think you'd done this before.
Top choices. I'd underline bath toys as well. You can never have enough.
I'd have to prop the kids heads up on a sponge in case they'd fall asleep as I'd spend hours pouring water down chutes to make the wheel turn. Yes, my girls were known as the prune kids

benmharper - nothing to panic about as I seem to recall a similar scenario at some point. I'm sure the doctors gave us something to, errr, help flow, and I may even recall the smell might be somewhat more pungent than normal.
Well, I know my farts are pretty rancid if I've not dropped the kids off at the pool for awhile.

Cheers, we got some stuff from the pharmacist today (lacatose solution???) and she dropped a monster this afternoon for the mrs to deal with.

Thanks for the advice all. I went down the bath toys route and got a bath book (which I can't say I even knew existed prior to my frankly scary trip into Mothercare.)

We had the big scan yesterday. After four attempts during which the doctor was unable to locate the cerebellum due to baby's positioning, he/she wriggled into view and all was good.

Well providing the baby his other half is pregnant with is his own I'm guessing he already knows about the sex, and if they were actively trying to get pregnant then he probably knows a lot about it.

Unless of course you mean finding out about the sex he'll now not be getting all too regularly.

Made that joke four times in work today.

But no, we're not going to find out.

When my missus was preggers with our first, they wouldn't tell us (to be fair, we didn't ask, we didn't want to know) as there had been a spate of Indian couples having girls aborted
I rather have the surprise I think.
Anyway, congrats jc, glad all is ok

Anyway, the eldest has now got her provisional driving license, and starts lessons very soon. The next stage of being a worried parent starts. She can't wait to start driving herself to college, but I think once she realises the cost of petrol, the excitement will soon wear off.
It scares me to be honest. there are too many cars on the road as it is, and far too many bad drivers, but like most of us before her, we can't wait to get a bit of independence. I knew it was going to be something I dreaded.

So, the snip? Do you think it's a viable option for a 30 year old? Would they even let me have it?

I'd imagine so. My mate had it done when he was in his early 30s cos he and his Mrs had decided they didn't want kids.

For myself, after years of unsuccessful (yet enjoyable) attempts at conceiving I must admit I had a bit of dust get in my eye yesterday when the first scan found a little heart beating. Long, long way to go yet... but hey you can only live for life as it is now.
