We upgraded the car shortly after finding out we were expecting. We needed to anyway, I was still driving the car I had in college, a tiny Dodge Caliber. It was sooo tiny! I also run a daycare out of my house and have been stuck here for the last 2 years because I didn't have the car space to take the kids anywhere. Which was fine when I started and they were all infants, but now I have a bunch of toddlers who want to get out as badly as I do! So, we got a minivan. I really wanted an Odyssey or Sienna, but they were out of our price range. We got a good deal on a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and I'm loving all the space we have now. I successfully packed 4 car seats in last week for our first trip to the park! It was so great to get out.
I wish I could upgrade the house with you guys. We live in a two bedroom place with about 900 sq ft of living space. It's tight with just the three of us and we're already feeling the walls close in as we prepare things for this baby. Sadly, we have to wait on DH to get a promotion before that happens, which we're hoping will happen shortly after the baby is born. We're planning on being here until the new baby is about a year old. I just hope it works out!
