HELP: needing your imput and a dr appt update!

I am doing this on my blackberry so bare with me if I mess something up, or it looks funny!
Need your ladies opninon on sleeping arrangements. What do you think it better co-sleeper vs. Play yard with bassinett on top vs. Normal bassinett vs. Moses basket
Also which is better to have upstairs and downstairs?!! HELP! ‪ ‬ ‪

On to my appt today!
I am offically 1 cm dilated!! I got another steriod shot, which puts me at so much ease in case we don't make it these next few weeks til 36 weeks. I will be more "ok" with her coming. Also, her cord is around her neck which they failed to tell me when I got my results from my bio-physical. But he only sees it as a problem during labor when pushing. He said it happens to 15% of his deliveries and hasn't had a problem and the baby is always a-ok. Speaking of labor he did say that I should have a pretty painless and easy delivery with how low she is! Waaa-whoo! So depending on how far I'm dilated when its go time, I may go natural!

I'm still measuring small and I am "all baby not fluid" which is explains why I feel so much smaller. It also makes me nervous because I'm afraid I won't no when my water actually breaks since I've benn "leaking". Uggh. I guess I will just "know" like they say, but it still makes my head reel! I got my beta strep 3 weeks early, and should have the results I'm guessing by early next week. I have had some bleeding (which is cause by my cervix changing) and if it continues after today (I will probally bleed in a little which from him checking) and decrease in movement I go in next week, if not I wait another week! So, there's your update :)


  1. We are using the Graco Pack 'n Play Portable Playard with Newborn Napper Station in our room and then my husband's (almost 30 year old) bassinet will be in the living room. We're planning on having the baby in the room with us until he's able to sleep 4-6 hours at a time (and maybe longer) and the pack and play seemed to make the most sense because it can be used for much longer than the bassinet. We are using the bassinet because it's in the family but didn't want to spend money for a brand new one- plus it's so neat to think my husband, his brother and thier cousin all slept in the same thing that our baby will be in!

  2. A friend of ours gave us her bassinet - I was just reading about the pros & cons of these last night actually. The Moses basket is "pointless" after the first few weeks so I wouldn't do that. They actually suggest if you can assemble your crib in your room to do that vs buying another item you really don't need. Or ask friends/family if they have a bassinet/cradle you can borrow.


shucks, thanks the comment!
i looove hearing from you!
