Yes. They are awkward to maneuver, or at least the one with two seats and a platform is. It was on my short list for strollers. It lost. LOL

Technically it will fit in my trunk based on dimensions. I'm just unable to get it through the trunk opening so it's a moot point. LOL

what kind of car do you have?
mine is really wide at the opening but gets MUCH thinner at the back. That's what causes most of our problems. lol

A Mazda RX-8. I'll be getting a CX-9 in the near future, but don't have it right now. I'm convinced DF is retarded but he's on the wait list for a Tesla sedan right now and hoping to get it in October. I told him there wasn't going to be enough room for all the kids we were planning, but the damn thing can seat 7.......in a sedan. The standard 2 + 3 of a normal sedan and then there is an add-on for two integrated harnessed booster seats in the trunk area that face backwards like in the old station wagons.

Haha! I love mazdas!
I would totally get a huge mom van if we could afford it right now. But we have a Mitsubishi Lancer. I love it but I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to fit two carseats in there!

I was thrilled the car seat safety place said it was okay and legal to use a booster in the front seat of my car because the airbag is one of those smart ones that shuts off under a certain a weight and then when it is on adjusts force and distance by weight as well. And the seat slides back enough inches from the dash to be safe as well. So technically I wouldn't really have to get the new car until we're having #4. My only downside to this is DS1 will be going into a booster a few months before they recommend it age wise, although he is tall enough now that he fits them just fine.

My major issue right now is our car only has LATCH in the middle seat. Which it where my son is now. So Ill have to use regular seatbelts with either one or both. That gets on my nerves.

pretzels and hummus is SO my thing right now.. Sometimes I'm tempted to grab a spoon and eat the hummus that way.

That's what we do for RJ's seat in my mom's SUV now (she just got a CX-9 last month). It's super easy if they are FF to use the regular belt. I've never done it RF before. Also, once the combined weight of the child and seat hit 65 lb you can't use LATCH anymore.

Lmfao... I just had to share how delusional my husband is. For fun I asked him what day he thinks the baby will be born on... He says "hmm, maybe October 12th.. that's matt's (his cousin's) birthday, so that would be cool"




A month past my due date... I swear he just picked a random day of the year. I wonder if he even knows my due date :roll:

Anyone done a 3D ultrasound? I really want to get one this pregnancy since it ended up not working with DD. When's the best time to go?
