I'm 5.4 and DH is 6.0 but my dad is 6.2 and my grandfather was 6.4 so our daughter has a chance of being taller then me...

As far as the diy stuff the mobile is coming along beautifully.. I'm very pleased with how its turning out... When it's done I'll post pictures.

I'm going with disposables.. just easier for me tbh..

It's the first time properly. I dabbled a bit with DD but never stuck to it whereas my OH is very keen to save the impact on the environment and our money! I'm sticking to AIOs to start with as I am pretty confident with how they work but hopefully buying a selection of a few to see what we think x

This is my first time ever and also I'm going to stick with AIOs. However, I bought a couple of pocket too.

I'm doing disposable but I do hate the wastefulness of it and the impact on the environment. Do those of you who cloth diaper think it would be worthwhile to buy a few cloth diapers and see if it works out? Part of my hesitancy is just because I've never tried it, but maybe it's easier than I think?

Disposable here. I just can't stand the thought of washing that much feces out of cloth

Just popping on to vent. My obgyn always makes me feel so bad about my weight gain, which is already hard for me to accept. I'm up about 15 lbs now at 24 weeks which is still in range, but anytime I put on more than a pound a week between visits she expresses concern. I think it just fluctuates last month I put on 4 lbs in 4 weeks, and the time before that 5lbs in just 2.5 weeks. I only gained 1lb net in first tri bc I initially lost. I get her worry. If I put on 6lbs every 4 weeks from here on out I would be over that 35lb target, but I honestly don't think that will happen...and even if it does maybe that's just what my body needs. I started small, and my diet has changed significantly due to be so sick, and honestly I'd rather put on 5 extra pounds than throw up more. I'm sure it will all come off once I deliver and get back to working out and eating healthfully. All this weight worry is sure making it hard for me to kick my body image issues to the curb *sigh*

Maries, I love your little algorithm! Just be careful not to get sucked into the cloth nappy world on Facebook, I know some cloth go for over $1000 if they're a limited edition print etc. My friend has some that were over $250 each. I know I have spent a sh*t-ton on woven wraps, and I get that cloth holds its value, but I just can't justify spending that much on something baby is only going to crap into.

Leson, I read that for someone starting off in a healthy weight, you should gain anywhere from 25-32lbs. I'm up 14lbs so far. I could understand your dr being concerned if you had been gaining that all the way through, but with your loss at the start your body has got to catch back up. Try not to let it get to you.

lesondemavie - I am so sorry your OB is that way. I am sure it isn't nice to have to add one more thing to worry about to the list. I would take the comments with stride. It is your body and you will grow your baby how your body wants to grow it.

AFM - I am at 22 weeks, gained 20lbs so far and baby is average size (1.3oz.) OB is happy and hasn't said anything about my weight.

Oh, I'm sorry, lesonde. I have similar issues with my doctor bringing up my weight too often for my comfort. It makes me feel anxious and embarrassed, which oddly only makes me want to eat more. I've gained about the same as you and everything I've read says it's fine. I'm wondering if there's a tactful way to ask the doctor to avoid mentioning weight as frequently? It seems like a few "extra" pounds aren't going to be nearly as much of a problem as having added stress during pregnancy.

My keep going to being vegetarian is the environment. I refused the idea of cloth diapers for an entire year but indeed is worth trying just don't buy too much in case you don't like it. However, I do not recommend you to buy the cheapest diaper that you find in some place because then you are going to make your judgement based on a poor quality product.
