Hi, ladies! Room for one more? :)

I've been hanging out on the January board, but had my first appointment today and based on my u/s they put my due date at Dec. 30th. I have been induced a week early with both of my other kids because of gestational diabetes, so chances are this will end up being a December baby!

Just a quick introduction...I am a SAHM, 31 years old. This baby was very much a surprise, and it really took a while to sink in, because our other kids were not conceived easily!! We were so not ready for a third child. Our house is already too small with the kids sharing a bedroom, so we are house shopping. And minivan shopping. Lol It has been a crazy few months, but we are so happy!

Welcome...we have alot of Katie's on this birth board (as I am one too)
As for your mini van search..we just bought a Toyota Sienna and LOVE it! it drives amazing (so much so that DH loves to drive it instead of his truck) has plenty of room and was a good price.
Looking forward to getting to know you!

Welcome Smile I also had gestational diabetes with my daughter. I am hoping I don't have it this time. I used to be so anti-minivan but we just bought one in February because it was a killer deal. Now that I have it I am so thankful for it. Ours has the third row seating so there is plenty of room for everyone. It seats 7 comfortably. We bought a 2007 Chevy Uplander. I am just glad it'll have room for two car seats (my daughter is 4 so she still requires a seat) and a stroller for the baby. Plus if my kids are anything like my sisters and I then we won't have to hear "So and so is touching me, so and so is doing this to me." Smile

Haha! This is sooo how my kids are! So maybe a van won't be as bad as I'm thinking! Lol

Thanks for welcoming me, everyone! Smile
