Butterfly Mama-congrats on the blissful spirit! I love hearing what others feel/see about this baby!
I've been out of the loop/offline for a while--since March I think! yikes... busy times & lap top (which is newer & faster is in the shop).
Glad to hear all of your stories.
I, too, so love to read the long list of random thoughts/posts for our thread. It's very comforting to me! like hot tea... or like a smoothie since it's warmer here now.
Thanks for everybody who takes time to post.
I'm at 26 wks now. I'm due July 21st.
I had an ultrasound at 22 wks b/c I really wanted to & loved seeing the baby's cute little foot!! and face--lips & mouth moving--maybe swallowing!! I was lying there crying... took dd along so she could watch. It was like no big deal for her.
They said "probably girl" but I think he's a boy. We'll see in July! It makes shopping a bit challenging for me though.
I'm wondering if everybody has a car seat. ?? We bought a Britax Roundabout for dd in '99 b/c I heard it was the one they use in Europe... and they drive so fast there... But, when she was tiny (8 lbs.), I remember riding beside her 7 holding up her head even though we bought little wing things for the straps & a little neck pillow/brace thing. While I loved knowing it was a safe seat, I didn't feel like it was the most comfy for a tiny baby. I wish she could have been lying down in a natural position--one that's could for digestion & the spine, etc. I just had an overall bad feeling about carseats with dd--esp. when she was a baby. As a toddler, on the other hand... I felt that it was safer for the driver for her to buckled instead perusing around & distracting, etc... So, I want something safe & sturdy but also comfy. Any advice? (I don't plann to carry around the car seat/ attach to a stoller, etc. so that's not a consideration/isssue in deciding... b/c I prefer the old fashioned carrying in the arms or sling.)
