I think you are really smart to have investigated it already. I wish I had known about EC before my kids were born.

I don't know what books or web sites you've looked into but I really like EC Simplified, Diaper Free Baby, and Diaper Free Before 3. Even though I didn't do infant EC we did it with our kids as toddlers (starting around 1 year) and I thought it helped enormously with PTing.

Yay for researching beforehand

You might want to have some diapers on hand just in case, I had a great birth but didn't feel up to coping with learning to potty my baby until he was 6 weeks old. He took to it really quickly and we have been doing great. I was surprised by how naturally it fit into our life, really easy to do once we got the hang of it.

Hope your pregnancy is going well

I'm ordering "...before 3". Seemed to have most positive reviews.

I second having diapers! I even have nb sposies around as I had mastitis and thrush and no energy to wash cloth for a good week or so. Also used them the first 2 days of our 2nd dd as washer was unexpectedly broken.... good thing I had those puppies around

I also like the website http://tribalbaby.org/
