Re: August 2013 Weekly Chat ~ March 10-16

<3

I would not feel bad about taking the used crib over the new. I (personally) would feel wasteful getting the new one if I had a perfectly good, safe, used one. Check the recalls though, before you do anything. We had DD's crib and I checked the recalls shortly after I got pregnant and it had been recalled because children kicking the boards caused them to break a few times. So we got $275 toward a new crib for DS at Babies R Us. We are still using the old crib as a headboard for our spare bed

Jennifer- Re: Stroller. I wouldn't feel awful at all about wanting a new stroller after 7 years. IMO a stroller is totally different than a crib. It has to function a certain way to be useable.

I hope you get a peek at the baby today, Erica! =D

AFM: We slept late. DD got up and made herself breakfast and DS and I slept until 10:30. We are both sick with colds, and he seems better, but I think he is still sleeping it off. Me, I have no voice LOL

Super excited for today. Just over 5 hours + waiting room time left I don't think I was this worked up about my ultrasound with my first, even. Probably, we will get ready early and I will go get a caramel macchiato to try and chill the heck out before hand. DH says he can *probably* meet us there! I might even talk DH into taking the kiddos home with him so that I can go to knit night, as it is near my Doc's office.

If Dh doesn't go, I promised that he'd be the first to know, and he wants me to tell him in person, so I won't be able to post until after 6.

bp fine, urine fine, gained 3lbs since the beginning, took her a bit to get a good reading on the hb...baby kept moving around...155bps, had blood draw (end of the sequential screening)

However I've been instructed no sweets That may be causing my severe light headedness when standing from the couch and my headaches

I'm a reuse, reduce kind of girl so I'd go for the used crib too. Nothing wrong with getting new if that's what you want though. Tell your mil she can buy some new stuff ! Lol.

Boo for no u/s today and for no sweets.

Amber- looking for your post later !!

That is awful! I wonder why my mw didn't mention that one? I should probably try it. They said eat more salt and drink more water. <3
