Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Hi ladies! AMC, lol about the belly rubbing! I've been rubbing below my belly button but it feels like I'm just pressing on my bladder--doh! Good luck with your OB appt on Monday! I keep hearing great things about pregnancy pillows, but haven't broken down and bought one yet. Niel, sorry you have to...

SMC, LOL! Seriously, though, I'm sure she has her own stuff to deal with. Being ultra skinny isn't always best for babies.

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

AMC, thanks for the info! I saw that a few of the infant seats go to 32" rather than 30", so maybe we'll opt for one of those. I'm toying with the idea of just using a convertible seat from the beginning as well, but the infant seats do seem really convenient. Plus, since we're hoping to h...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Just had a random thought--AMC, you have a tall DH, right? Mine is 6'7" and I'm 5'9", so we're anticipating super tall babies (especially because both of us were also really tall as kids). Did that affect which infant car seat you went with? I'm afraid that no matter what we go with, they'...

Yay for good news all around! We had our NT scan today and all was normal--measurement of 1 mm and an active bouncing baby with a heartbeat of 151. Bloodwork should be back within a week. We're not planning on finding out the gender, so no early guesses here! At first we were both thinking boy, but ...

baby name re:SS list and popularity

I read that there is a much wider diversity of names than there used to be, so even if you're going with a name in the top ten, it still is not as common as a top ten name would have been 30 years ago. One of our girl names is a family name that didn't used to be common but is now in the top 10. Eve...

How cool that you guys have friends pregnant at the same time! I have a couple who are, but only one is local and she's due next month, so well ahead of me.
