Jealous!! I just want out of the first trimester really. Won't be so on edge then and will really start to enjoy myself. Plus that's when I plan on shopping lol!!!
We are already shopping all the time we don't believe in folk lore or superstitions or anything like that so we dont think it is bad luck. we have so far: a mobi wrap, the beginnings of our cloth diaper stash, a "man" style carrier for OH, a snow outfit for a teeny baby, a couple of onsies, and our newest purchase from yesterday is the stroller! we got a german style one we call "the cadillac" because they normally cost around 700-900 euros...we got ours on sale/close out for 168 euros which is a steal! it comes with a moses basket and a regular sitting up seating system. if we buy the same brand of carseat it will also snap in
I think I might start after Xmas. Ill be about 8 or 9 weeks then (which is past the stage I made last time) so I expect I'll feel loads better then. Plus it'll be the Boxing Day and January sales! (Boy did we get pregnant at a convenient time!)
Nobody I know in uk uses cloth nappies but I've considered looking into it. I expect it saves loads of money?
Average cost in a year for disposables is around 1280$ a year so about 3200$ total cost if your child is in diapers for 2.5 years. i will end up spending around 400$ on my diaper stash total cost. plus, if you decide to have a second child you can re-use them. you can also do it cheaper if you go with pre-folds and covers, which are more work to put on, but cheaper in the beginning. I can send you some links to more info if you are interested

she has a ton of CDing videos that are just awesome. I love the way she explains things...it is plain and simple, and she tries not to let her personal biases against certain brands effect what she is saying. she has even more than this on her channel if you click and scroll through them all. hope this helps!
