I've been thinking about you and your boys, I'm sorry you have to deal with this!
b_b, lucky you! My 3 were all a week or more past my due date...I admit I'm kind of dreading that again this time! I keep feeling like this one is going to come a little early, but it's probably just wishful thinking
With my others I didn't really stress about going late, but this time I'm already feeling anxious and wishing it was time. Partly due in part to being a PAL mom now, but it stinks since I've got a good 6 weeks to go, yet!
Eresh, our older infant carrier was getting ready to expire, so we bought a new one. We went with the Graco SnugRide 35. I do think it's much more convenient for little ones, honestly. With dd3 I had the Britax Boulevard leftover from dd2, and I thought about using that for her from birth since it can technically do 5 pounds, but geeze! I put her in it and it was SO HUGE and she just flopped around all over the place, so we went ahead and used the infant carrier dd2 had. Especially have 4 kids to schlep around, I think a carrier is nice. I love my maya wraps, don't get me wrong, but I don't really want to use one from the van to the front door, ykwim? Plus, having an infant through winter, I think it will be nice to throw a thick baby quilt over it and get the baby in and out without getting too much cold. That was my thinking, ymmv!
MaybeJ, we are due the same day! Well, the clinic thinks I'm due the 13th, but I chart and I know exactly when I ovulated and when conception would be possible (and there were only 2 acts of intercourse that cycle, and there's no way one of them resulted in conception, unless I'm a medical miracle and my eggs can survive for weeks after I ovulate
) So I'm sticking with the 7th, I don't care what they say (I'll discuss it with my OB when I finally see her and show her my chart). Usually I like mint chocolate chip ice cream or vanilla if I'm going plain, but the chocolate was speaking to me last night at the store
Ohh, pampered chef has some nice stuff, yay for you southernmommie!
