33 Weeks (May 9, 2014)

33 Weeks (May 9, 2014). Somehow it's already Friday! I'm not going to complain, but this week literally flew by. I'm definitely feeling bigger... at least today anyway. And, I think as our little munchkin beefs up, my belly is looking more and more as if I swallowed a basketball. As for that growing munchkin, she is a pineapple! 17.2" and 4.5 lbs (ish). That's crazy. I can't believe we only have 49 days to go!

33 Weeks (May 9, 2014). Somehow it’s already Friday! I’m not going to complain, but this week literally flew by. I’m definitely feeling bigger… at least today anyway. And, I think as our little munchkin beefs up, my belly is looking more and more as if I swallowed a basketball. As for that growing munchkin, she is a pineapple! 17.2″ and 4.5 lbs (ish). That’s crazy. I can’t believe we only have 49 days to go!

Symptoms

Last night we had an appointment with our hospital to install the car seat bases in both of our cars. We had been scared into having it done by “professionals” during our classes, where they said that 80% of car seats aren’t installed correctly. I’m not going to lie, while the two women installing our car seat bases were nice, they didn’t seem “into it”… maybe I was being a little sexist because I was expecting men to do the installation (I know, I know… terrible). BUT really, they were super lazy about it. I had to ask them to redo it twice because it seemed too loose or it wasn’t level.

Regardless, we not have car seat bases!

One step closer to being ready for baby!

Also, note that our seat is in the middle. You need to be able to get a hand in between the car seat and the front seat, but as long as there is room, this is the safest option for baby. I didn’t understand why until the woman said, “think about if you get T-boned”… okay, now I get it. The middle is a bit more of a pain because you have to reach over, but baby’s safety is worth it. Also, we had picked up some seat pads to protect the seat from the base and were told that unless it actually comes with the car seat, it voids the warranty and sometimes poses issues with insurance. Noted. We didn’t use the pads. I think that’s all, but will say, if you’re installing the base yourself, make sure to yank that thing in VERY tightly. Once secured, it shouldn’t wiggle more than a 1/2 inch.

*FYI, we got the Britax B-Safe Car Seat & Bases. Everything I’ve heard from literally every momma I’ve asked has been that Britax is the best. Best quality, safest, etc.

 

In other news, I’m crabby today. I’m not 100% sure why, but I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed I guess. And if I’m being totally honest, I think I’m a little crabby because Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend and my birthday is next week… and I have this feeling my hubs has nothing planned. I’m a HUGE birthday person, so I think I’m feeling a little disappointed, which I should just let go of. He tends to surprise me now and again.

Also, while poor Ollie the Cat doesn’t get a lot of face-time on the blog, he was especially silly this morning keeping watch from the back of the toilet. Enjoy Sir Kitty.

Kitty on alert. He sees something...

Kitty starting to feel safe again, but still weary.
