31 Weeks

And I nearly forgot to take a belly pic today! I just had taken my pill cocktail for the evening (prenatal, 2 vitamin Ds and an Expecta DHA supplement) and was preparing to snoogle up to a nice DVR-ed Glee episode when I remembered. Adam says eh what's the big deal you can just take one tomorrow. But my anal retentive side says it's just not the same. Though on second thought, I could have looked much better had I just done it when well-rested and made up nicely lol.

Tonight after work we had our first pediatrician interview. Hubby is convinced this is our guy. I liked him very much and he's incredibly accessible. The only problem I see is that he's a bit old, and I don't want him to go and retire on us anytime soon. I still want to check out a couple more just to be sure.

Physically I'm still just feeling tired a lot, and heartburn has come back this week with a vengeance! I didn't know something as seemingly benign as chocolate would cause acid-throat. I'm looking forward to my ultrasound next week, because I'd really like to know which way she's facing. She should be flipping head down sometime soon, no?

We've also started car shopping, since the lease on our Infiniti G35 is up in a couple months. I'd really like to get into a new car before baby gets here so everything can be all set up, and so we don't have to go car shopping with a newborn. I really want a small SUV or crossover or whatever they're called. I'm not used to driving anything too huge, nor do I think we really need a massive vehicle. So far I really like the VW Tiguan, and I keep hearing good things about the new Kia Sorrento, so that's a consideration. The name Kia always put me off, but there are some crazy good deals on it, and now's the time to be frugal so I'm open to anything! I did test drive a Honda CR-V and I have to say I was unimpressed. It felt rattly and loud on the freeway. Any other fab suggestions would be greatly appreciated (but I have to say, I really like the Tiguan :-P)

I'm partial to the Ford Escape, but that's just me.

You look great!

I've heard people like the Acura mdx but I have no personal experience with them.

I LOVE the Hyundai Santa Fe. Safe, smooth ride, and incredibly affordable. I'd give it some serious consideration. Plus, Hyundai in general has been getting rave reviews lately.

I have the Kia sorrento and love it!

I love my CRV! Doesn't rattle at all for me, and it still feels like I'm driving a Civic. Chrissy has had her Kia since Cole was born, and I think it's worked out great for them. I also test drove and like the Chevy Equinox.

I'm in love with the new Acura ZDX crossover, check it out. That is what I want when the lease is up on my current car.
