Today. So happy my all day nausea is finally easing up!???????????????????? #jeanswontbuttonup #herewego

A post shared by Jennifer Hawkins (@jenhawkins_) on

Earlier in the week Jennifer revealed she found pram-shopping “overwhelming”, and asked fans if they had any suggestions.

Oh gosh yes, I still remember that day so well even 15 years later!

Luckily the sales assistant that helped us suggested we try and fit the pram in the car before we purchased it. Sadly the pram that I had always wanted was far too big for our vehicle. Sad face.

  • it needs wheels and a handle bar and to be able to fit in the boot of your car, then end

  • Luckily for me I was on a tight budget so didn’t have too many choices. My biggest struggle during pregnancy was being so tired all the time, and depressed.

  • A stroller needs to be light enough to pick up when folded and fit in your car boot. It also needs to be easy to push especially around corners, and the handle not too low as otherwise you stoop. It will make your back and shoulders sore, also possibly your neck. Don’t buy one of the really cheap ones that has a small seat and a small strap for baby to put feet one. At some stages the front of the seat of the stroller rubs against baby’s legs, also causes pins & needles in their legs. The cheap ones also don’t take nearly as much weight as the better ones do. The cheap ones also don’t have any protection for baby from weather conditions at all, including the sun.

  • I don’t have any bad memories about my pregnancy. In particular not shopping. I don’t like shopping that much, so once I go I am quick in choosing. I bought a Graco stroller plus maxi-cosi. I then got a little umbrella to attach at the side against the sun. More than enough. :-)

  • Definitely overwhelming the first time around! I just bought items from word of mouths of close mum friends and family. By the time you have the second and third you just kind of get whatever without thinking too much about it.

  • Getting a pram or a car seat wasn’t such a big issue for me.
    There’s an age gap of 12 months and 3 weeks between my first and my second. When I was pregnant with my second I came down with a pneumonia and was hospitalized. I remember I really struggled with that: I had no time to be in the hopital, had to care for my tiny firstborn and prepare for my second.

  • Yep definitely overwhelming for a first time parent. I did lots of online research before buying anything expensive

  • Yeah, finding the right pram was tough. But you can over think it.

  • It’s easier to do all your research online then go instore or online to pick up the best bargain for what you want.

  • I always said if I had a baby I would want a silver cross Paramus. When I was pregnant we went in to have a look at them and I just couldn’t justify spending that amount of money on a pram. I had a friend who is selling her second hand and two years later it’s still going strong and I’m so glad I didn’t spend all that money on one! It can get very overwhelming when you walk into a baby shop because everybody will have a different opinion on what they found most useful for their baby!

  • I bought my pram nearly 30 years ago and remember feeling overwhelmed them by what was on offer. So many gadgets and can do options, and they’ve only increased since then!

  • I really don’t know why this is even an article. Yes it is wonderful that she is pregnant but really, most expectant mothers are overwhelmed. Unfortunately we also have financial constraints to deal with when preparing for a new member of the family, pretty sure she doesn’t have that stress.

  • Car seats and prams are insane there are so many different ones it’s definitely overwhelming.
