Third Trimester Wish List

Considering I didn't want to bombard you guys with baby news or pregnancy stuff, it would seem that whenever I fancy posting a wish list, it often has a pregnancy theme. Maybe because expecting a baby is super expensive as they need a whole load of stuff. Seeing as we recently made some pretty big purchases - the pushchair and car seat! - I thought I'd post a wish list of some nicer, cute things. 
So yeah, I'm in the third trimester now. It's kind of scary knowing that in 12 weeks or so I'll be a mother of two, but let's not dwell on that right now. I've seen a few milestone cards over on instagram and they just seem like a really cute way to share big moments. It's no secret that I'm a big Peter Rabbit fan, so these milestone cards really jumped out at me. I'm really not one for over-sharing child updates on Facebook or the like but I think 30 milestone photos in a year wouldn't be so bad, amiright? 
We had a cow version of this Blossom Farm Sit Up Cosy when Dylan was a baby and it was so, so cute. It's suitable from birth as a little nest to rest the baby in, and then support them as they get bigger and start to sit up. Plus it's a pony, and I've always wanted a pony. 
I've got a growing 'saved items' list on ASOS for cute dresses and the like, but as I'm now pretty pregnant, I'm trying to curb the amount of 'maternity' clothes I own. Luckily, ASOS have a 'nursing' range, which can also accommodate a bump, so I'm hoping to purchase a few items from that range to ensure I can wear them for more than two months. This pinafore is something I've wanted to incorporate into my wardrobe for a while now, but I've never actually made the plunge into buying one. Although this one isn't strictly 'nursing', I think the straps will make it easier for that sort of thing. The next item for me is this amazing Good Yawning sweater from Parent Apparel. I'm torn between buying this one and the one that says 'Parenting the shit out of life' but I'm not sure how the grandparents would feel about that one, ha! 
I had originally spotted a different Lamaze toy in my local Boots, but after finding this incredibly named Sir Prance A Lot, I had to pick this guy! We had a few different Lamaze toys for Dylan when he was wee, so I've tried to learn by past mistakes and checked that this one doesn't have any music, ha! The next little toy I liked the look of is the donut rattle from Little Maldod, which is a store I've started following on instagram. It's crocheted and just looks really adorable, way better than any other rattles I've seen about! 
Lastly, I've included the latest copy of The Fourth Trimester. I know, I've not even had the baby yet, but I really wish this was available after I had Dylan. I struggled a bit and felt quite alone so I think to have had articles and what not telling me I wasn't alone/a bad parent etc would have helped a lot. I'm not sure how often the magazines come out, but you can buy digital downloads of previous copies, so I'm going to give that a go when I'm a bit closer to the ol' due date. 
Sorry for the length of that one! But this should hopefully keep me occupied for a couple of months, until I start typing up the new mam wish list, anyway ;)
