Yeah I buy based on our size requirements (child and vehicle) so the brands have been all over the place, yet this year 4 of the 5 seats I had to buy are one brand. And 4 seats of various brands expired so I suddenly feel like I'm the mom who is brand loyal.

Good to know on the new Britax high back booster. I just bought a bunch of HBB, because we rented a15 p van and didn't realize it would not have headrests. I tried the Chicco, turbo booster and turbo booster deluxe. We liked the deluxe the best, and it looks very similar to the essentials.

Hopefully baby turns for you. Ours has been head down for sure since 28 weeks. That was when I first felt peanut having hiccups. This baby gets them 3 or 4 times per day. We are getting closer on names too. We have 4 girl names picked out and 5 boy names. We probably will just wait until birth to narrow it even more. We like to see what they look like before making a commitment. The doctor said baby will probably hit 8 lbs, my other two were almost that big.

I've been mia for quite some time now, but is anyone else having those miserable super-early-stage contractions yet? Been about 4 days for me. Midwife says not to get my hopes up.

I always have irritable uterus contractions, but twice now I've had real contractions for hours at night.

Baby is head down. Being induced on Monday!

Re: July 2018

Has anyone here made a spin-off due date group for July 2018 on FB? I haven't been on DS in ages, I'm due at the end of the month with my rainbow baby. =)

Re: July 2018

copy-pasting from chat thread

Hi ladies we're back!

We greatly appreciate all the praying everyone did--the birth did not go as planned, but at the last minute (actually about three minutes AFTER the last minute) He provided a much safer option which shocked all the staff at the hospital.

8 hours before my scheduled induction baby turned, and I thought it was just rotating to ?posterior? whatever the normal non-sunny-side-up presentation is called. Nope. That kid went back to breech. So we spent the first half of the day just waiting on the clock to be 6 hour since eating in case I'd need to be put under for c-section if a version broke water, put baby in distress etc. The version was not successful, and man that hurt a LOT...they tried hard. They couldn't just send me home because I was 3-4 cm at arrival. The attempted version got me contracting and they spent the next half the day trying to stop labor--some induction, eh? The terb. made me so shaky. By 5pm I was 8cm and had to be delivered. We were hoping to make it to 7 when a different OB came on who has some experience with breech births and just hoping and praying he would agree to do it. They basically don't do breech births there. Their stats said 0.1% of births for the year were breech out of 1000 births. But I wasn't gonna make it til 7 and they called a c-section. Got everything ready, gave me more tern to slo the contractions for the surgery, it was a done deal--my after visit summary actually even says I had a c-section. But it would be such a huge risk for me with clotting and bleeding history (they did have my special blood on hand already though). The nurses and midwives fought the OB hard, but he has never done a breech birth in 30 years and wouldn't. Finally another OB walked by and said "I'll do it" which shocked everyone because they had no idea she had that skill set! She's semi-new there, a few years I think. So we did a double set up in the OR, prepared to switch to c-section if necessary. They got the other doctor to one in early (and he's from my hometown, he must have jumped in the car the second they called) to assist. So I had 3 OBs, a midwife, a whole mess of nurses, 2 from anesthesia, and a whole team for baby all in the room. Flat on my back legs strapped in stirrup things with anti-clotting pump boots on, all waiting for me to get that baby out after being given the terb! Turned out I did not care, could have been in Grand Central and I wouldn't have cared ( I usually hide my face to deliver...I mind!). That. was.intense. 8 lb 3 oz in only 18.25 inches frank breech intense. So you know we were being surprised with the gender, well DH found out the gender before kiddo was half out this way lol! It's a BOY!! One DD cried, but has now decided she likes boy babies better than girls. My homeschool friend was there as baby nurse and said in 25 years she has never seen a breech birth, they were all amazed, midwife brought the staff brownies next dat to celebrate not giving me surgery...it was all pretty overwhelming how much they care for me.

Of course that wasn't enough drama for little man so he used the bruising he got on his feet, leg, and bum to pump his bill up to 19.2 and earned himself three more days in the hospital under lights. Had to do bit of arguing to get the proper testing done for the isoimmunization issue (not their fault really, it is really rare and the confused it with regular ABO/Rh incompatibility) but in the end everything was done right and all his labs look good. He is not affected by the really nasty antibody, which is all they could test. Went back for follow ups yesterday and today and he is all clear, we get to stay home an entire day tomorrow! And all week too. Then regular 2 week visit, and a u/s with orthopedics to check his hips because of being breech but the docs all say they seem good. Had some springy legs up to his ears a couple days though! At one week he is back up to his birthweight. NOT the usual course for me and my nursing babes, so I am thrilled.

Wow! That's quite the story! I am so glad he is here and safe! Today is my due date, but my babies are alway late, so I'm hoping we will have this little one by the end of the week.
