Labor buddies--yes! I've been stalking the March DDC, too, and thought it was such a cool idea.

 

BeanBean--I just made my belly casting appointment today! The local hospital does it (free for mamas birthing there, but as I'm not, it'll just be a small donation), and my appointment is in four weeks, when I'm sure I'll be ginormous. I love seeing my friends' belly casts hanging out in their homes, and it's one of the things I'm most excited about now!

 

As for me, I'm finally starting to feel a little more urgency about getting ready for babe. BF and I went car seat shopping on Sunday, and after trying nearly every car seat at BabiesRUs (which wasn't all that many, sadly), we ended up getting a Graco SnugRide at Walmart. Not my favorite place, but we got one of those car seat/stroller packages for a very reasonable price. And the seat is not pink!! So happy about that!

 

And today we interviewed our pediatrician (!) who seems so great. Most of my friends (and BF's niece) go to see him, and he was really awesome in person.

We had a midwife appointment yesterday also. Our LO is also measuring one week behind (33 weeks) but is positioned OA on the right side and is about 5.5 lbs. 3 weeks until LO is full term! Last night was also our final birthing class.

Cute babies!!

 

I cannot wait until I get my taxes back so I can get some properly fitting nursing bras. My current ones are so small and uncomfortable.  I also need to buy my belly binder and DS1's new carseat with the money. Come on taxes!!

I have my taxes back already, but am having *so* much trouble finding nursing bras that might fit me. I also need to get a car seat, but that's just my procrastination. redface.gif I've tried googling for plus-size/larger cup size nursing bras, but with very little luck, without spending $$. I was hoping I could get some for about the same amount as I spend on regular ones, since tax time is my new bra time, but... I might just have to have a few "nice" ones, and use sports bras or something other times. Any ideas?

OHHHH MY WORD! LOOK AT THOSE BABIES! August looks so chubby, love it :). It's really weird that our babies all pretty much would look like that/be that size if they were all born now... so precious <3

We're still waiting on a refund from two years ago.  Cuss.gif

 

Our taxes get complicated since we have to file US AND Canadian taxes. We go to H&R block and have them do both because, in the end, they get us back well over what we pay them, and we wouldn't have the faintest clue how to get the same credits/refunds. But the IRS made some sort of mistake on one of the returns and we're still waiting for them to work it out. We're waiting for what should be about $800 (which is A TON for us). It's kind of funny, how ridiculously long it's taking. Annoying, but, for whatever reason, it's not stressing me nearly as much as some other things do.

I don't have any ideas...honestly I don't even know how big I am. I was a 36 D or so before getting pregnant and I know I've gotten bigger. I was going to go into a maternity store and see if they measure or will fit you for one, so I can figure out my size. I got fitted for one with DS1 for a Medela brand, but it fell apart too easily so I will not be getting another one of those.

 

Also I forgot to mention my DS1 (almost 4) calls this baby Dinosaur Buttons.

 

And I am so tired lately. My commute for work is 1 hour each way (with dropping the kids off at daycare) and even though my house is a mess and not fully unpacked, I'm exhausted by time I get home at almost 6pm I don't feel like doing anything. Then last night, my DH tells me I need to drink more water for energy....right. Because its not like I'm tired because I'm out of the house for 11 hours during the day and come home to take care of 2 kids and a husband, or the fact I feel like 4000 weeks pregnant. Men.

Wow! That is a weird thought.

 

Those are some handsome little men!

 

I hate looking fro nursing bra's. I can't wear an underwire when I am nursing, and I like a little padding so I don't have "nippl-age" all the time. The hardest part is that I am a big cup size but a small band size. I don't know what I will be this time (I'm afraid to know... my boobs feel much bigger this time for some reason)... last time I think I was a 34DDD or something like that. I'm willing to save to buy a couple good bra's... just have to find them. I know there are some i have seen on the internet that looked promising, but no where local sells them and I hate buying on the internet because returns are such a pain. I just want to be comfortable... is that too much to ask?!?!?! Haha.
