So I know that it's b/c of all the crazy hormones in my body right now but seriously my skin is HORRIBLE I have dry flakiness in some spots pimples in others! Yuck I hope this goes away soon. So my question is.. What do you wash your face with? Right now I am using neutrogena lavender nighttime wash and though I like it I don't love and would change if there is something better that would help my skin! Thanks in advance!!!

So we are installig the infant seat into the Tahoe today. For those of you who have two kiddos where do you put them? I was thinking put Eli behind passenger seat and baby in the middle but then e might wake him or something but then he would also be able to give him a paci etc if need be. Should I put Eli on one side and baby on the other? Help I have hear that the middle is the safest? I am totally confused, help out a stressed momma! What configuration do you have? Thanks!!!!

37 week appt

So y'all saw the post earlier about the migraine well it's stil here. I am actually getting a pedi as I type ahhhh bliss. Anyway my bp was high when I went into the dr but lowered as I relaxed. He says he is concerned that the migraines are so frequent and now more severe but doesn't want to induce due to them b/c at this time I am still not dilated at all!! And that will just increase my risk for a section if I do induce. So I can try if I want but he thinks it won't be a sucessfull induction and I would end up with a section OR wait it out another week (next Wednesday) and see how I am then I will be 38 1/2 weeks then and he would feel more comfy with the induction SO that's what I am going to do just wait it out I am really going to try and do nothing at home and see how it goes thanks for all the good thought and comments!!
