I need the accountability! I need to get active again first though. During my 4th pregnancy I kept practicing karate (no contact sparring or rolling jumps, obviously) until the beginning of my 3rd trimester. This time I'm a slug!
Sometimes Hypnobabies, but usually quiet. My labors are really quick and I don't want anyone to talk to me or touch me during labor and I don't want to hear anything or see anyone. Kind of like the mama cat that hides in the back of the lingerie drawer to have her kittens.
Oooh, if it was 5 years ago it might be expired. Check out this link, it might help you find where either the expiration or manufacture date is: http://blog.gracobaby.com/2010/02/11/car-seats-have-expiration-dates-too/
I handed down my Britax Marathons from #1 to #3 and then from #2 to #4, but they've both expired and been destroyed now.
Yes, check the expiration date on the carseat, I think it's on the side of a lot of them. If it's not expired and hasn't been in any accidents then you should be fine to use it. They usually expire in 5 or 6 years, depending on the brand.
Yeah, I'm thinking about not telling my dad and step-mom until they come visit. They haven't been here since DS2 was 6 weeks old and he turns 2 next week, so I could probably just keep it quiet for quite awhile. It would definitely be more peaceful. (They thought 3 was a lot. )
