Hello Everyone!

 Hi, my name is Marie. Just thought I would introduce myself and let you guys know a little about me. I haven't been in to the Dr yet but as of now, I am due January 3rd with baby #4, which means I'll be having the baby in late December unless the drastically change my due date once I go to the Dr. I already have 3 boys; ages 6.5, 4.5 and 2 (in a week). I am  a mostly SAHM but I do substitute in the school district as a teacher's aide along with being a volunteer EMT/firefighter and teaching EMT skills to students. I live in upstate NY where it has finally reached temps over 30* so we are spending a lot of time outside because winter comes pretty quickly here. Now that I am a little less shocked I am starting to try and plan to see what we are going to need and hope for some good Black Friday sales since we got rid of EVERYTHING because we weren't planning on another baby. If you hae any questions for me, feel free to ask me anything!

Hello! I agree on the black Friday sales! I was 100% against having more kids, 4 girls is enough, so I gave away all baby things I accumulated over the years. Crib, swing, bouncer, pack and play, all the clothes, everything. I think the most we have is a few onsies my girls kept for their dolls.. Now we have to buy everything! Yikes!

 We still have the boys' crib but we are going to get a new one, they have beat the crap out of it! I had a bunch of clothes still but my BIL and his gf just had a baby boy in February so we gave most of it to them. We are also going to need a new car lol

We had to buy a mini van after the birth of #3..#4 came along and it got a little more cramped.. Now we have 1 open seat left which will be filled by #5.. I just need one of those big 12 passenger cargo vans.. lol..

I'm hoping to avoid a mini van lol I'm pulling for a 3 row suv so I can have either all wheel or 4 wheel drive.

This will be our last baby, too. I have always said that I didn't want to have any babies after I turned 30 and I will be 28 in 3 weeks so we were pretty close to it lol We weren't trying though. I was on the pill, so this was a pretty big shock.

Congrats!
We r expecting baby #6. We have 4 girls 21 (22 in June) 16,14, & 1 and we have a son who would of been 3 he passed from heart defect. So we are hoping for a boy. Never did I think we would have this many kids I always thought we were done after 3. I never wanted to be pregnant after 30 but it happened and when I had my son I knew we wanted at least one more and now here we are on baby #6.
