I was super stinky this pregnancy - and I had a boy too. Interesting. It has occurred to me that I might just be more sensitive to my own body odor, since my husband doesn't think I'm stinkier, but either way it's annoying.
I have also been VERY gassy since I gave birth. I have wondered if someone stuck antibiotics into my IV when I wasn't paying attention. Or maybe it's just the beans I've been eating.
I need advice. My husband just got a job on the west coast after losing his previous job a few months ago (hooray!). This means we're moving ourselves, our possessions, our baby and our dog from coast to coast. HOW should we move the baby?
He will be about 7-8 weeks old, but not yet immunized (we plan to immunize fully, but he can't get his first round until after we need to leave).
Should we: A) all drive together in the car. We estimate this to be a 10-day road trip.
B) drive a few days, so that we can introduce the baby to my 90+yo grandparents in the midwest, then have the baby and I fly the rest of the way.
C) baby and I should fly, husband drives the car across solo.
So far Armie hates the carseat. In a few weeks this might change, it might not. We could be pulling over every 20 minutes to nurse, change, etc. Or I could pump and hand him bottles as needed. Or I could just pop him out of the carseat to nurse, because the chance of an accident during nursing is EXTREMELY slim. Really. Possible, yes, but incredibly slim. It could be a beautiful adventure - or it could be utter hell.
What would you do?
