I'm halfway there. Today I am 20 weeks. I don't have any new stretchmarks . . . that I know of. I can still kind of see my feet. My nose looks swollen-- but I've accepted it and stopped judging it. Strangers are starting to pat my belly and say things like, "Soon! Soon!" and "How much longer?" I have an appointment with my OB on Thursday. I'm not sure if he'll be my OB for the rest of the pregnancy. It will depend on where we actually get a house. I was going to take a picture and download it of my twinned-prego profile, and then I remembered that I am blogging on dial-up. I'll be lucky to post this tonight. The benefit of dial-up is I can teach a whole subject to my homeschooled Pookie between page loads.
I've been thinking a lot about cloth diapering while languishing here in the TLF. I've also been reading the book "The Tightwad Gazette" by Amy Dacyczyn. I'm still wondering how I got to this point in my life before finally reading it. It's an easy read and most libraries carry it.
Cloth diapering, if you do your own laundering whether at home or at a laundromat, is cheaper than disposables. It doesn't take much longer. A couple of good resources for you to read about cloth diapering that are already online are on http://www.comfybummy.com/ and http://www.stretcher.com/. Watch out though if you click on the dollar stretcher site, it's very addictive and you might find three days have passed since you left your PC. One day, when I have a home, and my stuff is all set up (like my computer), I will actually post my cloth diapering post. But my short opinion is, it's cheaper (though does require a couple hundred dollar initial investment), it's better for the environment, it's not really that much more work than disposables, and a cloth diapered bum is so adorable in it's chubbiness.
