Re: 2nd Trimester Check-in Week of 3/6 ***New Leader Needed!***

  • @mjacks16 - oooh love that! Yes please report back on comfiness and tallness of back!. I'm 6' and Eric is 6'7 so we need a chair with a tall back for sure, though I think I want a recliner which this doesn't appear to be... still would be interested to hear how it is.

  • I need work to stop being so crazy! I don't have nearly enough time to bump lately.  :) Finally getting all caught up! 

    Love all of the gliders! DH didn't want something too big or something that we wouldn't be able to use long term. So we ended up with an Ikea rocker. We already have a big recliner, so he didn't think we need another.

    We did our car seat! My parents were kind enough to buy it for us. We'll be trying to install it for practice this weekend.

    Other than that, not much going on right now. Next appointment is the a/s on the 21st.

    @jwatt5 and @wifeinraleigh thanks for sending pictures! I love both of those, but I don't want to wait 6-8 weeks for special order fabric :neutral: @mjacks16

    I actually found one on Amazon that I think I love and may order. It comes in gray, has a recliner (which I think I may need for the end of my pregnancy) and it glides. The reviews were great too. My brother is offering to buy it for me. He said for him, it's easier to buy 1 big gift rather than several small gifts for both babies. I think he is nuts for spending so much on the babies- but I appreciate it a lot. He's gonna be a good uncle! So i was trying to be aware of the cost too. My original was 400 and that's the one he offered to buy. So my new one had to be under 400 too; I didn't want him to spend anymore than he already generously offered.

  • So another big step done today! We started our registry at Babies R Us. It was super overwhelming even with all the research I had done. I still have some work to do on it because I need to add some items they did not have in stock and also research a few items that we hadn't looked into! I still have to complete my Amazon registry but that will be fairly straight forward because my crib bedding isn't sold at BRU and there is only a handful to add that I can't get at that store. 

    @colleen0516 that chair looks super comfy! 
    JWatt5wifeinraleigh28
  • @Colleen0516 - do you mind sharing the link to that chair? It's super similar to the one I have picked out but a LOT less $$$. I'd love to check out the dimensions, etc. 

    @ARB425 - congrats!!!! Love being able to check those things off the to do list!
