So tues, thurs, and today, I'm walking 30 min on the treadmill on my lunch break at the PT dept next door and Wednesday I worked out with my trainer. Tomorrow I'll try to do a 30 min walk in my neighborhood and Sunday we go to the gym to work out. Going to try my best to keep that up.
Other good news: heard back from the local diaper service in Hawaii and they said I could do a 2 wk service when there in September but of course have to pay the service fee and delivery fee like everyone else. And I guess they had issues with visitors bouncing checks in the past so only cash or money order but that's not a big deal for me. She's going to give me a total estimate based off the amount an average 2 month old would need in prefolds each week. What is your experience with that age?
Are you coming to O'ahu? I also contacted the Dolphin Diaper service when I thought there was a possibility of us having triplets, but two in cloth seems much more manageable for me now!

I also have been trying to walk about 2-4 miles a day. It's a mile from my house to DD's school so I have been walking it as often as possible so that I can stay active. The bed rest scare slowed me down, but I am hoping to start back up with both dropping her off and picking her up next week, which is an easy way to get in 4 miles. It goes by quickly and isn't a chore.

Ditto to what others said, but my midwifes are also my DD's peds (and will be the peds for this LO), so I get it super good--my babies will continue to see the same doctors from the moment of birth until...whenever! The doctors/midwives see male and female adults too, so even DH will go to them if he needs a doc. So awesome! lol

Yep! I grew up in Pearl City and my parents still live there so that's where we'll stay when we visit. Won't be there until September though for a quick visit so the Hawaii family and friends can see the baby - most important person will of course be my grandma and I can't wait for her to meet this little one!

Re: Weekly Chat Jan 20-27

There was a Kanoe hammock on Ebay that I've been stalking all week but the auction was set to end when I would be sleeping early this morning. It's used and from a seller with very little feedback so I decided before I went to bed how much I would be willing to risk on it, put in my bid, and went to sleep. This morning I woke up and I had lost it - by a lot! That sucker went for $260! I don't feel bad about losing it.... I can buy a brand new one in the same colors from the company when they get them in a few more weeks. I bet the poor sucker that paid nearly new price for a used one didn't know that!
