  • @annabenanna - Those are too cute! I have an unhealthy obsession with chambray. Baby girl may or may not already have 10 or more chambray tops, bubbles, rompers, etc.

  • @CopperBoom86, girl me too!  I love chambray!  I saw so many cute chambray dresses on Zulily a week or so ago.  If I was having a baby girl, i'd buy them all!  And the chambray stuff with polka dots on them?!?!?!  Or ruffles????  Swooooooooon.

  • @CopperBoom86 @annabenanna I think I'm glad I'm having a boy. I think I would be broke if I was having a girl. There's way too many cute girl clothes!

  • @annabenanna Ah! You're kinda evil!  :p We're leaving for our vacation Friday so I'm tryiing to be good, but yes!!!! So. Many. Sales. Uggggggh... And I want to start buying some stuff but my MIL is coming to housesit and she's very nosy...We haven't actually told anyone the sex yet so I know she will snoop! Let me live vicariously through you! What'd ya get?! 

    Edited to add: Zulily is having a pretty great sale on baby gear! The PUJ bathtub set is usually $75, but on sale for $49.99. The PUJ was my favorite tub for bathing newborn DD. 
    Who is the evil one now @rozANDbenSINCE2001???  I'm off to Zulily to see what this PUJ bathtub is all about. :)

  • Didn't want to start a new thread, but hoping for a little advice...  I was approached on LinkedIn about a possible new job opportunity a few weeks ago. Very similar to what I currently do (boring desk work in a corporate/office setting), but I've been itching to get out of my current job for something where I can grow a little more (aka make a little more $$)... Anyway, I replied that I was interested, but only if the salary was a certain amount over what I make now (doesn't make sense to move right now for the same salary).  At first, the contact said it was more than the company was looking to do, so I said thanks and moved on.  But, now, the contact is saying they've upped their salary cap and wants to talk to me more about the job tomorrow... Do I tell her I'm pregnant??  Or do I take the call, see how it goes, THEN mention it?  I think she's more of a recruiter for the company, so it would probably be an intro call to learn my background, experience, etc. to see if an interview should be scheduled. I mean, I'd have to say something before any type of interview - there's no hiding the bump now.  I just don't know if I should be totally up front even before the "feel out" call or if I should wait and see a bit...
  • @LMNOBaby, how bad do you want this job?  Do you like the company, their culture, etc?  Because if you're thinking "whether i get this or not, no biggie"....I'd give the recruiter a heads up and tell her you're pregnant.  

    If you want it, I would say, don't even mention it to the recruiter, but maybe wait to score a phone interview with the actual company, and then mention it to them.  

    Because I'm thinking the recruiter might just say no right away upon learning you're pregnant... I dunno.  This is  a tough one!



    LMNOBaby
  • @annabenanna I actually don't know anything about the company yet, I think that's what we'll get into tomorrow.  Which is why I was thinking I'd at least take the call with the recruiter - because if the location is further than I currently commute to, or it's a company I don't see myself growing with, I'd bow out right then. 

    I feel like the recruiter would just bail upon learning I'm pregnant, too, likely able to blame it on my skills not being a right fit or something.  *sigh*  I WANT a new job, but I wasn't counting on something like this happening now! Life seriously likes to throw you curveballs.
  • @LMNOBaby I wouldn't say anything right now. You aren't legally obligated to disclose your pregnancy. I would make sure of their leave, PTO, STD, etc. policy though. You wouldn't want to take a new job and then find out you aren't eligable for any paid maternity leave or benefits. If it were me, I'd find out more, maybe take a phone interview and ask all of my questions and then if I decided it was something I was interested in, I would go for the in person interview and and say "Hey, obvoiusly I'm KU. Hope that's not a problem!"

    I wouldn't mention it yet, @LMNOBaby. You don't even know if the job is a good fit for you, or you for it, yet. I would feel it out first and tell them if they seem interested in offering you the position.

  • Am I the only person NOT buying baby clothes? I put a few on the registry (I know some advise not to register for clothes, but I wanted people to see my taste) and I figure I'll see what I get at the shower. I just don't know what size the baby's going to be - and I figure it won't be that size for long, anyway.

    I'm a self-proclaimed baby clothing hoarder. I've probably spent more on DD's clothes and shoes in her two years of life than I've spent on my own wardrobe for the last 5 years. It's really important to have options. Haha.

    That being said, I haven't bought nearly as much for the twins. I probably have a bin on two. Mostly because I have no idea when they will be born and how big they will be. DD was in preemie for a month and newborn until she was around 4 months. My nephew is in 6 months and he is three months old.

  • RainMira9e  I haven't bought much either. I'm waiting to see what we get gifted and what we actually need. I did buy a couple cute/costumey onesies for H for father's day, but that was really it. I feel like I should be more excited about all the cute little man clothes, but I'm just not yet! =/

    I've only bought clothes on clearance or from yard sales so far. I won't buy anything too pricey until she's actually here. 

    On registering for clothes- I did, too, and for the same reason. I don't care for the color pink, so I registered for some purple, teal, green, yellow stuff. I know I'll still get pink stuff, but hopefully some will get the hint and go for other colors instead :)

  • Thanks ladies!  I was leaning that way - helps to have a little back up for reassurance I'm doing the right thing though. :)

    And, @rainmira9e - I haven't bought a single baby thing, let alone outfit!  I'm kind of itching to, but I just can't pull the trigger yet... Plus, we're Team Green, so I feel if I buy something boy-related, it will be a girl or the other way around.  And, I figured I'd wait to see what we got at the shower before we bought baby "stuff."  So you're not alone!! 

    Pretty sure my mother has a wardrobe for either sex for at least the first year of their life anyway...so I'm not too worried (it's her first grandbaby ;)).

    I've bought a pack of cute long sleeved onesies and an outfit for a sip n see, but that's it. I look at the clothes all the time, but I have several showers where I'm sure I'll get overloaded with clothes, so I keep trying to remind myself of that. I am trying to keep my baby buying sprees nursery related.

  • @RainMira9e and @scostel2, I wish I had your sensibility!  While I haven't bought a lot of NB clothes, I have a few 3M and 6M stocked up.  Like @CopperBoom86, I've been buying stuff on sale/clearance as well.  But I just feel like, I'd rather buy now while I'm not on ML (getting only 60% of my paycheck)... also when this baby starts daycare in January, funds will even be tighter then. :/

  • My husband and I have been buying clothes for years. Mostly sale items and they're mostly 6 month or bigger. We can't help it. If we get too many clothes at our shower, I'm just going to return them for credit so I can buy other things j need. Lol.

  • @annabenanna I don't think it's sensibility necessarily. I think part of it is also that I am super lucky to have 3 nephews so I know my little dude is going to be swimming in hand me downs so I plan to do some serious "shopping" in the bins of stuff my brother and sister in law have been saving for us. If I were having a girl (we have none in my family) I'd be stocking up!

  • I'm late, but...

    @AllyTheKid - I can't say whether a hospital rental is more comfortable than a manual b/c I've never used a manual. In fact, hospital pumps are very powerful, and can have the potential to be less comfortable than lesser pumps. However I found that depending on whether or not I was paying good attention to my comfort level (sometimes easy to ignore when pumping 6-8x/day) then ANY pump can be comfortable or uncomfortable. I would use coconut oil on the inside of the flanges when I was having tender days - it always worked to heal me up.

    @LMNOBaby - just echoing what others have already said - definitely DON'T tell potential employers you are pregnant, unless you really are leaning towards not wanting the job and/or just don't care either way (though I would still not tell on principle). This is the kind of thing you disclose only after you are offered a job. It may sound shady (it isn't) but it's up to you to look out for you and your family, and they will need to suck it up.

  • @CopperBoom86 My friend in the neighborhood is throwing a Halloween party and is insisting we stop by since its down the street. I don't know how well a 2-3 week old baby is going to fit in a purchased costume, so I think I'm going to find an orange onesie and make it says This Is My Baby Costume. I saw one on Zulily but it's easy enough to make!  We will aim for a cuter costume next year!
