hi ladies! i know i haven't been around recently. i took a break from preg.org because ttc was just getting too discouraging. i honestly have been online reading about how to raise an only child and had come to accept that because i was so exhausted from dealing with fertility issues...and then we found out we were pregnant!!! total shock. but we are very excited. i'm only about 7.5 weeks along.
so, i know it's a little early to be shopping but i've been researching double strollers for the last two days, and i'm completely confused. it honestly seems like there are no good options...even the $800 ones get bad reviews and all the different types seem to have issues and problems! they all seem bulky, hard to push, hard to fold, hard to store, can't fit through doors easily, can't hold children who are too big or too small, etc. anyone have any luck with a double stroller? should i just strap the newbie to my body and then hope DS1 is old enough to walk around on his own by the time the baby needs the stroller?? currently, we walk almost everywhere (library, church, pool, playground, grocery store, coffee shop, etc.) and i also like to walk for exercise, so that's why i've been looking into this, but i'd hate to spend hundreds of dollars on a stroller that isn't really useful.
i'd love to hear anyone else's experiences or thoughts on this!
