Hey ladies,

Thought I would post this over here in the 2011 thread since y'all all have a baby (or babies) now. :-)

Do you have a video monitor that you recommend? Or is a video monitor necessary? Maybe I just need a regular sound monitor?????

I would love your input. Six more weeks for me. We are getting so excited.

Lou- Hearing your schedule alone makes me exhausted. Wow girl you've got a lot on your plate. I'm sure you will figure out a way to do it all. Where there's a will there's a way is what they say. Working out really helps with your energy too so you can manage the busy lifestyle. (I know that's exactly what I need to get my energy back so I can manage my crazy life) Sorry about your job security and fingers crossed it works out.

Nancy- So exciting only 6 more weeks. It will go by fast. I'm curious as well since I still haven't bought one and really need to get one. I normally do all the shopping and I've been out of commission since October.

Nancyb- we have the Summers Infant Sleek and Slim video monitor (I think that's the name). I liked it because you can connect up to 4 monitors. You can view up to 4 pictures @ once or it will automatically scan between them every 8 seconds. We have liked it so far.

Nancy - I've missed you! I can't believe you're so close to meeting your little one, this is so exciting! We have a video monitor and I LOVE it. It's made by Summer (not sure of the model) but the night vision is really clear and the sound quality is great. Maribel grunts and snorts in her sleep and if we only had an audio monitor I'd probably be having to get up and check on her often. But this way I can just take a peek at the monitor and see if she's really awake or not. For me it was probably one of my favorite things that we "splurged" on. :D

I can't believe Maribel is 6 months old!!!!!

Thanks for the input on the monitor. I go back and forth...splurge or not splurge. It's definitely a splurge item. I think we'll wait and see if we get any gift cards at the shower and then use those to apply to it. :-) We shall see.

As you know, we plan on using cloth diapers but we've already been blessed with two boxes (300 count each) of diapers. Can you believe that!!!! I told dh: "I'm no fool. I'll gladly accept disposeable as a gift". :-)

I'm getting excited but also very nervous. I guess that's normal.?.?. They've scheduled another u/s for my next appointment (36 weeks) to determine baby's position. At my last two appointments, they found his/her heart beat up by my left ribs. At my 29 week appoitnment, the midwife said she thought baby is bottom first but at my 32 week appointment she said she didn't feel anything low. :?: :?: So we shall see at the 36 week exactly what this baby is doing. I know one thing, he/she moves A LOT and I'm loving every moment of it.

Nancy: We got a video monitor and love it too! It is a bit of a splurge as the other ladies have said, but for me, well worth the piece of mind. We looked at Summer brand, but ended up getting the Samsung with 3.5 inch screen. I really like it! You can see a wide view of the crib/room if needed or close up. It has a light on it that you can turn on if needed remotely. You can also turn on music to play in the room and can talk to baby through it. It can also be linked to your computer. Congratulations on being so close to meeting your LO!!!

Could you give me a link to which one you got? Perhaps on Amazon or whatever is easiest for you!
