Code:This is us. I hate the car or going anywhere now, I have no idea what we are going to do. There is no relief. We have to be in the car..it's awful..I feel like a terrible person for letting him cry . I have tried everything. I think he just doesn't like being jostled but idk how to fix that..and by now he already has a negative association with the car seat, I thought it was getting better, but now we are back to screaming. So, I hear you, lily.
Ninetales, I will surely give that a try. I seemed to have figure out what the problem was..the infant insert was making him incredibly uncomfortable. I took it out and our rides have been a million times better! Way less crying while riding!

Yay!! Congrats to all the new mamas! The babies are so cute!   Here's our Gilliam, 6 days old    
Gilliam Gregory's birth This is super long. I wanted to get as many details down as I could before the small things started disappearing from memeory...   I had been having braxton-hicks contractions for quite a long while and feeling generally ready to drop a baby for about a month before he actually arrived.   On August 30, I woke a few times through the night to noticable contractions. Maybe once or twice. I had that date in my head for a long while so...
Oh, the afterpains!! They are soooo bad! I feel like crying everytime we nurse. I am totally going to look for cramp bark!
Baby boy Gilliam Gregory arrived today at 11:32am. After 3 intense contractions and lots of nights of prodromal Labor, he flew into his daddy's hands on our bedroom floor. 9 pounds 5 ounces, 22 inches long.
