We recently got a surprise positive pregnancy test!  Although we are very happy about it, we had made the decision that we would either stick with our two daughters, or wait until after our move to the UK, so this has sort of thrown a spanner in things a bit. 

Thank god we at least kept the essentials! Except that he or she will probably be naked most of the time [which is really no problem in GA in April], I can absolutely get by with everything I held on to. Still have my cloth diaper stash, at least 5 soft structured carriers, the porta crib, one of the girls' old car seats [hasn't been recalled], an amazing  and comfy baby swing, my breast pump and bottles, and at least one good nursing bra with organic cotton breast pads. 

So glad I didn't do a compulsive purge like I have with almost everything else!

The only big thing is our Taurus isn't going to cut it with three kids and a greyhound, so car shopping has begun!

Congratulations Wren!  I had a baby this past April and it's a wonderful time of the year to have a baby in my opinion.   :)

I had to get a new car as well.  It all works out in the end.

Thanks, all!
Yeah, even though I've always told myself I'd have 3 or 4 kids, I'd gotten so used to the idea of two that I'm kind of in shock right now. My youngest will be 5 shortly after baby comes.  I promised myself I'd always live in a two bedroom house, and never have to buy a big car. We're going to be outnumbered!

I'm very happy about it, though.  It will be a crazy few years, but then I will eventually have rational beings to converse with, and who can wipe their own bottoms and fix their own breakfast, lol.
