OUR PRAM STORY: Old #pram #pushchair I didn’t have a specific brand in mind when shopping for our first pram/pushchair way back in March 2018.. We waited until I was 12+ weeks pregnant and had the first scan to say ‘all was ok’ before we even started looking online etc.. I looked at a few places but in the end, we found @mothercareuk had the best deals on at that time (Good Friday/Easter Weekend) and spotted the @silvercrossuk Pursuit for £800 - better yet, that included the Simplicity Car Seat, Isofix base, matching changing bag, rain cover, all the adapters needed and more! It was a fantastic bundle! ———— We always knew we’d try for a second baby almost immediately (when my body was ready) after having our first, as I have PCOS, that supercharged fertility after giving birth was our best chance at having more than one child. You could argue that we should have bought a tandem pram to start with, or at least one that would convert into a tandem.. but, what if we hadn’t managed to get pregnant again? We’d have spent the extra money unnecessarily. —— I have had many miscarriages (including one in Sept 2017, we fell pregnant with Jackson in Dec 2017) so I didn’t want to jinx that even if I could get pregnant again, that it would all work out ok as I know far too well, that often isn’t the case. —— The Silver Cross Pursuit was a great first pram and I loved using it, imagine my surprise (although we had been trying!) that we managed to fall pregnant! Feb 2019 I got that magical positive result again and then thought.. ‘oh bugger, the pram!’ We certainly weren’t going to buy a new pram before our 12W scan just in case it went wrong, but I did do some research on tandem prams ahead of the scan. ———— The cheapest I could see was a Mothercare own brand pram and it was around £900 (before extra car seat etc!) we weren’t too worried as there would be plenty of Bank Holiday sales etc so we’d hoped we might be able to get a slightly better pram in one of those sales between our 12W scan and her arriving, but we started putting money aside in readiness.
