Diapering itties is so much fun!

Thank you! I'm feeling better after that first appt - and so silly, that them moving to the other side of the building made that much of a difference, but I'll take it!
I'm still anxious about the u/s, but I think DH and I both will be until we get through it, kwim? That's just such a HUGE thing for us this time.


I had 32 or 33 diapers for Levi (that fit right away, I mean, a combo of NB and smaller smalls) and that was plenty for washing every 3 days - we never ran out or even really low.
I bought 4 more when pregnant with Elli, and I will get another few nb piddle poddles (only have 2 and would like to at least round out the half dozen)... hmm... thinking about that, I wouldn't mind rounding out the 2 xs FBs to a half dozen too. stupid OCD.
But, honestly, I don't need these diapers, I just want them, kwim?
From my experiences, 3-4 dozen is plenty.

AFM: 5:30am - party in Hiccup's womb Seriously. I woke up wondering what woke me, then felt kicks and thumping around in there
I remember scrunchy stretches. SOOO squishy!

Glad the first appointment helped and I hope that after the ultrasound you'll be much more at ease. Have a date for that yet?

Also--I am itching for regular movement. I still get it 1-2 times a day, but its just one thump and then gone so unless its obviously baby, I often miss it and think "was that gas?" Or don't think about it til a few mins later. Get an obviously baby movement once every couple days...but I miss the wake-up wiggles

And finally--glad I'm not the only one with diaper OCD. I have to have the exact number of diapers and liners and colors that I'm supposed to have

And to the CD Newb---I used 36 with my son and only ran out if I passed out nursing and forgot to actually wash them at the end of day 2. Haha. Now I have 36 prefolds, 6 covers, and 20-25 AIOs. So I'm all stocked up on newb dipes. Could probably get a few more dipes for later, but I think a friend (whom I introduced to cloth and who is now done with kiddos) is sending me her small/mediums, so I won't buy any til she sends hers.

Although, if I have a girl, all bets are off---I may absolutely NEED to buy some cutesy girl ones
