I think I'm going to install the car seat base the weekend after my shower, so the first week of June, and I'll be 32/33 weeks then.

what about you?

We are buying our car seat in June and having it installed in June as well (I am guessing anyways) I would be about 31-34 weeks. I really would like to have EVERYTHING set up for the baby by 35 weeks.
Thank you *kiliki* for the cute siggy

With L I did it at about the same 32 weeks, with C, I think earlier then that, jsut because I happend to go to a place to have it professionally installed.

this time since there's a risk of me going early I'd like it done, plus once I"m bigger I just won't be able to do it!

We didn't! We were planning a homebirth and it wasn't a big priority. Ended up in the hospital and my mom drove my DH home to get the car and he installed it before he came to get us. I'll have it in for the next one probably around 40 weeks. (I go late.)

We didn't install it early last time either, but we just forgot. Tim installed it with one of the nurses on the day we were leaving the hospital. We're planning to install it in the end of July/beginning of August. Around the same time we'll have our bags ready too, I think.

I want to get the car seat this weekend, but I'm not sure about installing it. We might just do that this weekend too, and then take it somewhere to get inspected sometime before July.
