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.
