After having 3 babies, we've pretty much wore out all of our stuff. I am glad we spaced the kids out, but I'm fairly sure that you shouldn't use a car seat that is 10 years old. I've researched more things with Consumer Reports this pregnancy than all 3 others combined. This week I'm thinking nursing bras. Have you just ever obsessed over something? That's how I feel about bras for the last 8 weeks. I remember the bras I've used before, some I loved, some I hated. Of course I cannot remember now what is what. So, after MUCH research, I decided on this bra:
This is a Medela Bra, and the first thing you need to notice is that the model does not look like she has had a baby in say,like, the last 5 years. At gap it is $40. But I found brand spankin' new ones on ebay for $27. I bought 2. I was so excited when they arrived. Now, I'd been sized by a professional recently, yes, after my breast had enlarged..and was confident in the size I purchased. Of course I wore the underwire version the very next day. And let me tell ya. When I put it on, talk about LOCK and LOAD. I was amazed. The girls had never been so far apart in their entire lives. Mind you, I have started wearing these bras on a regular basis. Basically, because I am bigger now, than when I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding, so I think it is really silly to have regular bras that I will not be able to wear later.
I'm not really one of those girls that likes pretty underwear. I pay for comfort and support. But, after Ryan off-handedly mentioned that they were not really all that attractive, and Elle asked why I was wearing 2 bras, and the fact that it has SO much coverage that I need to purchase all new shirts, I decided to look for some "prettier", less grandmother-ish bras. (I know, "grandmother-ish??" in a nursing bra?) This is what I found:
A "lot" of 5 nursing bras, in my size for $30. ebay of course, yes, new. I thought, what the heck. It's $30. I got them yesterday. I am so excited! two actually have lace! I've washed them, and I'm wearing one tomorrow.... Finally. I can think about something else. Hmm. I wonder, If I was an astronaut out of the ship, working on the equipment and drifted away, how would I die? lack of oxygen? freeze? carbon monoxide poison....
