I had another ultrasound this week and I'm measuring right on track at 10 weeks (well, 10+2 days today). Sprout was flailing its little arm and leg nubs around and turning. It was so cute. I "graduated" from the specialist to my general obgyn. When I scheduled my first appointment with him, the nurse told me I wouldn't get another ultrasound until 20 weeks I'll talk to him and see if I can come in for one at least around 12 or 14 weeks... He's pretty nice, so I'm hoping he'll work with me.

Other than that, all is going well. I get nauseous from time to time, and certain foods are iffy (I tried to be good and eat some fried eggs this weekend. It was so difficult to get them down and I started crying while eating, which then made me laugh) but haven't thrown up much.

We planned a trip to see my parents after July 4th and plan on telling them then. I'm having major anxiety about that, not sure why. I think because I was pretty "cool" about the idea of having kids simply because I thought we'd never be able to have one. So it's not like they are waiting for a grandchild. It'll be something completely unexpected for them and keeping it a secret for so long now almost has a dirty secret feel to it.

Also, I have quite the amount of ovulation pee stick indicators (whatever you call them, lol) left.... Does anybody want them? They are all individually wrapped.

Has anyone heard from Jesse?

That's awesome news! It's such a relief to continue to see your little bean growing and wiggling! Are you planning on getting a doppler to hear the heartbeat with at home? I've used mine from about 10 weeks until I started feeling consistent movements... it's been a really good piece of mind. You can get a decent one for less than $50.

Your nausea should hopefully get better soon! My morning sickness was gone by 13-14 weeks

I'm still waiting... 37w5d today! I'm hoping she'll come next week We have the nursery almost done (even though she'll be sleeping in our room for the first ~6 months) and we have almost everything we need. I'm going to have my bag packed for the birthing center tonight after I get the rest of the things I need.

It's all starting to feel real

Being pregnant in Vegas is pretty depressing lol

But I'm still so happy the tiredness, bloating/trapped wind, inability to drink or do anything remotely exciting and constant blocked nose is worth it!

And baby's heart sounds more like a proper little heart now and we have graduated to lemon side as of yesterday!

Jess, I can't even imagine being close to birth. I still don't feel pregnant a lot of the time (those symptoms aside, but that could be a cold!!)!

Jules - you had sex!!! That's why you can't tell them

That's how I felt being pregnant while in Key West last month! We went there for our "baby moon" and although I had a fantastic time without drinking, it definitely would've been more fun if I could have partaken! Also, we walked 3-5 miles a day and I was sooo tired by the end of each night. I hope you're having a great time out West!

I really can't believe I'm so close to birth! My bag is packed except for what Nora and I will be wearing home

Is anyone else planning on using cloth diapers?

I've almost finished compiling my newborn stash. We wanted to get ~12 in random brands to see what we like best, and then will order about 6 more a couple of days after Nora is born. I've bought Bumgenius, Thirsties, Fuzzibunz, GroVia, and Rumparooz Lil Joeys.

Once she grows out of the newborn sizes, we'll be using the bigger all in ones and pocket diapers. Right now we have about ~10 Bumgenius Freetimes, but I want to get some other random ones as well to figure out what we like best.

At first I was nervous about cloth diapering, but I feel fairly confident now. We have the sprayer hooked up to the toilet and I'm just waiting on my cloth diaper detergent and diaper pail. We have newborn disposables at home for the first few days (don't want any meconium getting in her pretty brand new diapers!).

We are. Friend on ours does with good results, and we have worked out it's probably a good investment in the long run. Plus landfills. Plus they're SO CUTE!

I am! I'm hoping to score some off local friends whose kids will be outgrowing theirs around the time we need them. I think the first few weeks we'll use Seventh Generation or Honest disposables for simplicity's sake, then switch to cloth. I know of a couple places locally that have a "try before you buy" type program, so i hope to use that to determine what brand(s) work best.

try before you buy would be so ideal. I had mentioned to Brian that IF we do get pregnant, cloth diapers might be the way to go this time. bigger investment up front but less money than disposables. I worry about my ability to keep up with the wash though LOL. I HATE laundry and as it is now I only do laundry once a week

I don't think it happened this month. I won't know for sure for another week whether my monthly comes or not but I don't have any symptoms and I'm pretty sure I was barfing by this time last time lol.

A lot of cloth diaper companies have great return policies actually! And, the resale value of cloth diapers is amazing. There are cloth diaper resale sites and they sell VERY quickly it seems.

I'm really looking forward to not spending money on trash. The idea of spending thousands of dollars for disposables over Nora's lifetime isn't appealing at all.

I hate doing laundry as well, but I figure it will be easier since I'll be home. Every day I'll just make sure to do a load of diapers. This is one thing that worried me, but at least I'll never have to worry about running to the grocery store at midnight for diapers because I didn't realize I ran out!
