Pregnancy Pregnancy

Parking spots for moms to be

I know Babies R Us has them but I never used them. I figured as long as I was able, I'd walk a little further I didn't need to. Our hospital has parking for moms to be who are in labor, too. I don't think we used those either, lol.


Should they exist? Would you use them if all stores had them?

They are so nice to find at stores. I parked at one the other day that was for parents with small kids.

I think they're silly. Pregnancy isn't an illness or disability.

I didn't use it w my first but I think it will come in hand when I get farther along w a toddler as well.

Yes, I occasionally used them with my second pregnancy. I carried her low the entire pregnancy, and as she got bigger, it caused a lot of pain in my hips. My ankles started swelling around 7 months. Didn't matter what I did either, they stayed swollen. So, yes, occasionally, I used the expectant mother parking spots.

I've never used them, we don't have them local but in the bigger town next to us. I think you shouldn't use them unless you have to or in the last 2 months.

I think every person and pregnancy is different and they can come in handy for someone , for instance I would use it if they had it at the grocery store I can't walk long ways without my vision being blurred sweating feeling faint and getting hot I have to even ride in the ride on carts if you would have ask me with my first pregnancy I would have just said they are being lazy but now experiencing such a hard demanding pregnancy I feel otherwise and will not and do not judge other pregnant moms never know what their pregnancy is like.

When I had my first they had a few. But since then I have never seen one. I never used them when I had my first. I could walk even with my sciatic nerve and SPD issues.

Yea so far we have only used it once this time at bilo because I was having a terrible headache and couldn't walk much I still only made it a little while in the store before I had to go back out and sleep in the car. I think those spots are nice but really anyone could park there like I saw some old man park there. It's just a nice thing some stores do. But I've only seen them at babies r us and this bilo in town

 My water broke at home when I was pregnant with my daughter, on our way to the hospital my ex needed to pay our phone bill (so we can let family know we were at the hospital lol) so we stoppped at the mall and did in fact park in one of those spots.. I don't know if anyone THAT expectant had ever parked there before lol but it did come in handy for me... :)
