Hola chica!! I'm doing good just feeling really tired and lots of back pains but other then that pretty good. I haven't been on here a lot like before I've been somewhat busy but I've thought about all the friends I've made here and wonder how all the girls are doing. You've just inspired me to check in with everyone to see how their progress is going. Hope all is well with you too! ;))

I know but believe me they will cost about half of the price of all of the disposable diapers that you will have to use by the time they are potty trained. I've done all of the math already =) I did it just to prove to my husband that it was definitely worth it (not that he minds because I will be the one changing most of the diapers and doing all of the laundry)... The money and the environment are both saved! LOL! The laundry detergent and cleaning products are seriously easy to make too =) I have a web site with all of the information on the both if you want me to send it to you =)

LOL! I am also going to try to make everything at home that I can (you have to wash the cloth diapers in special detergent that I can make at home) and cleaning products, etc. I really look forward to doing it. I am going with the gDiapers because they have the ones where you can flush the liners instead of washing the diapers (for when we are out or moving again!) so it actually isn't as hard as most think. It is a great alternative!

I am sure that bfing is going to be tough at first but like all difficult things I am sure it is worth every second... And it saves you so much money in the process! I am looking forward to all of the things that I am going to be able to do with this baby that I missed out on with my first two. No bottles for her! I am also really excited about the cloth diapering too (which probably makes me sound nutso) but since I am a SAHM and I really don't leave the house for much then I don't think it should be too much of a problem. I have to check with the hospital that I am delivering at to see if they will follow everything I want after she is born. I am going to be doing all of that on the 20th when I have my glucose test and my check up.

I have to force my 3 year old to take a nap but it is hell if he doesn't because he gets up at like 630-7 am every morning... If he doesn't take a nap then he might go to sleep at 830-9 pm or so and if he does have a nap then we are looking at more like 1030 pm! He started sleeping through the night at about 4-5 months and my first son it was at 3.5 weeks! I thought I was so lucky! LOL! This will be my first going as a breastfeeding momma so I hope it comes easily for me! I saw your pic and you have no belly button anymore!

I TOTALLY understand. Are you going to stay at home or just take maternity leave for awhile? I am a SAHM and having two at home all of the time scares the living daylights out of me! UGH! My husband does 12 hour shifts so that is a lot of me taking care of both kids and getting up with an infant all by myself most of the time and since I plan of breast feeding (exclusively) I guess that is my job =) I am also doing cloth diapering (wow it saves you so much $ plus cloth baby wipes and making my own detergent for the cloth diapers) so between all of that and bfing we are going to save so much money and I am so proud of myself... my husband keeps telling me he is going to buy me a sure that says mommy chemist on it! LOL!

Aww sorry to hear about the swollenness and back pain! My back is always sore as well, I think I'm paying for never having had morning sickness haha. Besides that though pregnancy has been great :) And that's awesome to hear about with your daughter!

Everyone and everything I read on it said that them being turned is supposed to be horrible and worse than labor. I have like the lowest pain tolerance in the world and it wasn't bad at all. Totally exaggerated. They just put pressure behind the babys neck and then massage in circles until the baby is so annoyed it flips on its own. It lasted maybe a whole 3 minutes if even that. The part that stinks is all the worry and they make you wait forever at the hospital before you get it done and then forever afterwords to do the non-stress test. I just dont want to have to deal with it again. My last pregnancy was the pregnancy from hell and this one so far has been so smooth. I just want it to end that way.

Oh also your right, the cravings really do suck :( Luckily most of them have just been for fruit, but being in a small town when the craving strikes for shrimp, or butter chicken there's not much I can do about it! Lolol.
How has your pregnancy been treating you thus far?

Yeah if you are a fitness instructor than I'm sure you get tons of exercise. I myself am slightly allergic to it so I don't really exercise unless I have to. Its off season at my work so I can do some snacking. If I have a few moments I always grab like a bowl of soup or a bread stick or something. Plus we get free lunch/dinner depending on the shift you work. So... yeah pasta. Probably not the wisest idea if I'm trying to not gain much but really who can pass it up! She is indeed still breech. Sometimes I can feel her flip around but most of her kicking is still in my cervix. I am REALLY hoping she doesn't follow the trend of her sister. Aspen got stuck in the breech position at 36 weeks and at 38 weeks I had to get her turned. Not really something I want to deal with again.

Yeah I'm a server at a restaurant so as far as I'm concerned I get all the exercise I need since with all the walking I do I'm getting in a couple of miles every shift. I also do weight lifting due to the trays! :) I like hiking and exploring as well but I cannot stand it at night when all the bugs come out and I get cold. I have a subzero sleeping bag and either it is faulty or it lies because I still get cold. I also enjoy my bed in general. We're going camping for DH's brothers birthday so apparently my attendance is mandatory but he promised we'd be there less than 36 hours so I'll just have to suffer through it. Last year he ripped off his foot dirt biking when they went camping and he had to get it sown back on. I'm really hoping things are less eventful this year.

I am SO uncomfortable and as DH keeps kindly reminding me I still have a ways to go. I cannot sleep very well and it seems like she is always moving in some way to cause me pain. We're supposed to be going camping sometime this month and I am less than enthused. 1.) because I hate camping in general and 2.) because I know that its just going to a miserable experience. As far as the weight gain goes I've been doing pretty good but last time I was pregnant I was small the whole time until my 8th month and than my face got fat and I looked swollen. I'm hoping that this time I can keep everything under control. As far as eating goes I eat the same as before I was pregnant but because we are supposed to have 300 more calories a day I eat 2 bread sticks at work and call it even.

Aw isn't the belly button popping fun? LOL! It always happens around 29-30 weeks and it is definitely half gone right now... LOL that is how I know that the baby is definitely getting bigger! LOL! I would definitely ask how much the baby weighs but it was really important for me to know because my water always breaks and they could have kept her in the nicu for absolutely no reason at all... My first baby was born at 36w5d and weighed 8lbs5oz and he was fine except for his jaundice. I am glad that I am one of the lucky ones that water breaks =)

thank u,  actually there's a group in Spain called "La oreja de Vangoh" and their first singer was named Amaia and then she left the group and currentley the singer is called Leire, i didi't want a common girl name and i liked  the name Leire and i also liked Amaia and where i live i haven't met anybody with those names so that maked me like it even better. Leire is also a Monastery (i think) in spain and a village or something in England, and the meanning of Amaia is the beggining of the end (wich is kind of weird) but i like it anyway.

AW I know how you feel! Yeah my baby is measuring 29 weeks!!!! And going by my actual LMP I am 27w2d and they apparently had my wrong LMP written down. My doctor decided to take a look at my chart (since I had my quad screening and u/s done) and I was asking her how much the baby weighed and she started to look and she said something is seriously wrong! I FREAKED! She asked when my LMP was and I told her and she said no wonder lol... And she said that the baby weighed almost 2 pounds 3 weeks ago! So she went through the measurements and said that I was definitely 27 weeks like my LMP said-not what was written down =) I knew I felt way to big and my belly button has almost completely popped! LOL!

Hey girl! Sorry I have been so busy with this [email protected] move lol! I am finally here and I have a ton of organizing and putting things in their places but I don't have to go back and forth anymore =) My babies have always dropped around 34-35 weeks and I go into labor no later than a month later with my water breaking (I hope you don't have to be induced this time!) but my babies are always 8 pounds! Marley is already 2 pounds so my doctors don't think I'll go 40 weeks which is just fine with me =) I bet your boy will drop! They aren't nearly as stubborn as girls though from what I understand! LOL! I guess we will have to wait and see what is going on with this little one! I can't believe I am 24 weeks today! I am so thrilled!

Hi hunnie. I'm still waiting... it was supposed to be here today and nothing. Been feeling Tugging sensation... not really cramps but like pulling almost like when you exercise too much, for the last three days. I dont know what to think anymore. Hpt this morning came back negative... I'll see if it shows up tomorrow and if not then I'll test again on wed. I'm soooo tired of this up and down stuff :(

Hey! It is funny that you asked about the baby sitting low because my boys always sat super high and htis little girl's head is right on my cervix and she elbows my bladder all of the time. I swear sometimes I feel like she is going to fall out! I can't imagine how it is going to be when she drops! I think my water will break! As long as she stays in until 37 weeks I will be happy because she is going to be a big girl! I am busy packing and cleaning for our move tomorrow and Monday and I totally wore myself out last night =) I got a whole lot done and I am very proud of myself. We are supposed to go to a park today and do some hiking so hopefully that will be a nice break!

Yeah time is flying. Another of my friends just found out she was pregnant and asked a mutual friend of ours how far along I am and she I guess said like 2 or 3 months. When she asked me personally (and were talking a really close friend) and I said almost 6 she was like, "where has the time gone?!" Haha I'm wondering the same thing. I'm thinking its moving faster because this is our second maybe?

A vacation sounds great! I just don't have time for it lately! The poison ivy is clearing up.. I'm just REALLY allergic to it. I just breath it a mile away and I catch it I swear. haha. I had my son feel Jacob kick once and he yanked his hand back and yelled "DONE!" hahaha I think it scared him for some reason! Is your daughter obsessed with babies now because my son LOVES babies now, it's so cute!
