I want to get a car seat. Most everything else I'm waiting on until after the baby shower.

Signing up for Bradley classes. Then after that I need to leave my OB and find a new MW. And then after that I need to start a Doula search... and I am hoping to have all of that done before mid-may. I want to have my glucose test then get the heck out of that office forever. I still need to call my insurance about where else I can go though yikes. (It wouldn't of seemed so stressful if school wasn't ending and if I actually done all this earliar! But between now and mid may is just a big crunch for me with school)

Do you have a car seat picked out? When is your baby shower?

Do I want to know what is up with your crib?

We loved our Bradley classes! We didn't use another doula - if your hubby goes to the classes with you, then he will get a doula card. If he can't make it, you want to line up someone else who can go with you. It's more for your labor support than it is for you. Have you read the Bradley book yet? When are you doing your GTT? Good luck with the insurance!

Our next step is to clean out the room upstairs that we are putting my sewing machine in and Dalton's computer... it's seriously a relic that MIL gave to us over the weekend. They have a ton of games loaded on it, and he really just likes to type anyway. I could scrap out the computer for more than it's worth whole But I can also add some more hardware to it and make it a decent homework computer later on.

I have a new test can, but bf and I havent seen much of each other since last Tuesday (not happy about it). We will hopefully make a decision on the color by sat so I can get the bigger can. I am doing some shopping on sunday, and thats when I will get hangers (as well as trying to get gift for my DDC baby shower buddy).

Mischief... i am trying not to think about the GTT I have this thursday. UGH!

finish the basement so I can move the older two downstairs, then move the twins, then set up the nursery--the electrician comes on Monday so we can get rolling on the basement

Well, we did it... we cleaned and organized the spare landing room, set up Dalton's computer and my sewing table. I have a table where I can keep my machine all the time!



Marie - good luck today!

I'm leaning towards a Graco Snugride (30 or 35), but I don't want to decide until after we head to BRU this weekend and try it out in our car. Need to make sure it'll fit, and see how well I'll be able to get the seat in and out of our 2 door.

My baby shower has been pushed to June, probably the 11th. I'm trying to convince DH that it's too close to my due date to put off buying the essentials, since he doesn't want to buy anything until after the shower. I need to have things ready by then!
