16w appt tomorrow. Nervous because I haven’t met this dr before and she didn’t exactly make me feel warm fuzzies when I talked to her on the phone about the cfDNA test.

So you ladies confirmed what I thought. Definitely heard baby kicking the doppler this morning. Now only if I could feel him!

I don’t even know if cloth diapering is going to work out for us, but I need to stop ordering them! 

I am not going to put pressure on myself to make them work and decided to just give them a reasonable try and if it didn’t work for us then cool— we could buy disposables. I have texture and smell issues with disposables so I’m hoping cloth will work for us. My husband is on board with trying them so long as I do the laundry (which I do all the laundry now anyways, no big deal there). 

Well.. I think I’ve cleared 40 diapers (once they all arrive) and I’m not even 16 weeks pregnant. Someone delete my paypal account please. I still wanted to get covers and GMD prefolds but I need to BACK AWAY.

I respect alternative medicine if you wish to subject yourself to it, but get your goddamn children to a real doctor, especially in emergencies. 

So much this.

No, adult cousin, your essential oil bullshit will NOT cure the bacterial pneumonia I had and was hospitalized for a few months ago.

I deleted her on Facebook after that suggestion.

Good riddance!

The first baby was born today from my small fall due date group. I am so happy I decided to follow them through their journeys but seeing them now start to give birth breaks my heart. I should have been 34 weeks now.

I am so thankful for this healthy baby but I can’t help myself and I get trapped thinking about what could have been.

All the emotions.

Baby boy is a little less than half way to my belly button. Moving up!

It’s been an emotional day. I’ll update more on that tomorrow. (Everything is fine with us, me, baby, etc)

New BG prints…

My friend just told me she just sold a Jules 4.0 for $80. I just bought $250 worth of the new prints.

No shame.

I told my husband and he told me to buy a few more. Hah.
