Re: New Mommy Confessions

I sometimes make hubby get up and bring me the baby in the middle of the night so he gets a taste of sleep deprivation, too.

I am already thinking hard about losing the baby weight, even though I...

Re: Requests for/during c/sections?

I was thirsty, too, but my hospital cautious about post surgery...

Re: New Born Must haves

The only thing I wish I had was a stack of magazines. I've been having major bowel issues and spending lots of time in bathroom. Wish I had more reading material.

In L&D

I've had brown spotting for 48 hours. Last night I started cramping, and this morning spotting turned red. So I called my doc and he told me to come to L&D.

So far they've just been monitoring me...

Re: realistically leaving the house

Re: Would you use this carseat?

I said "screw it" and just bought a new infant seat. I had planned to use the convertible from Hubby's car (because now carseats are useless in his car, since he can't fit all three kids), but...

Re: 37 week appointment and so much pain!

Would you use this carseat?

I have the infant carseat that we used with both our older kids. It was a gift, probably purchased in late 2007. It has an expiration date of December 2013. Even though it hasn't expired yet, I am a...

Any c-sect moms with a 2nd floor bedroom?

Re: Who gets in and out of cart first

I always park right next to a cart return, so I don't have that issue. I agree though, it's a sticky situation.

Honestly, though, 99% of the time when I'm grocery shopping, DH is with me, too. So...

Re: Who gets in and out of cart first

I always put the older kid in first. I abandon my purse, too, but it's not a big deal for me. I don't live in a high crime area.

When my younger kid was just a baby, I would carry her in a pack...

Re: Pick up the PHONE!!!

I prefer texting. I just set my text ring so it rings every 5 minutes until I answer it, that way I don't miss anything important.

I've never really been a phone talker.
