Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Hi ladies! I'm so sorry for my absence and lack of updates. It has taken me almost a week to write this, with barely even having a chance to get on the computer at all. I’m finally at a place mentally where I feel like I can get some of this on paper, but the problem is finding the time to finish it...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Pupp , thank you for coming back to share your story! Mia , aw that makes me feel good that you think I don't complain. =) I really do try not to, because I feel so grateful to have had a healthy pregnancy and no problems to speak of - it's hard here at the end not to complain, but I know I'll miss...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

41+3 today. Baby is still baking. Yesterday we went in for the biophysical profile ultrasound and another checkup. Scored a perfect 8, so baby is good, and fluid level is good. I know the estimates can be off, but she did say based on the head and abdomen measurements that she estimates the baby is ...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Just a short update to this afternoon's post... we had our appointment, and the NST was fine - baby still looks great, so no worries there. The midwife did say she wanted to do a cervical check, and to sweep my membranes if I was ok with it. I had not really had sweeping the membranes on my brain fo...

Sorry guys, I just popped back in and realized how long my last post was - I am so sorry! I had sat down to do a quick update, and was so tired that night, so I have no idea how I ended up writing so much. I'm sure there are tons of run-on sentences and rambling, so I apologize! We had an appointmen...

Hi ladies, sorry I've been MIA for a while. 38 1/2 weeks. Just been busy juggling getting everything at home ready, and being so tired, and trying to balance all that with the obligation I still feel to go to work and try to continue saving my time up until the birth. This past week has been particu...

Yeah, I've heard that the infant insert for the Ergo is pretty hot.
FYI, the Baby Ktan that I mentioned above also can be used for newborns, which I definitely plan to do.

Any users of Nellie's Laundry Soda here? I use cloth feminine pads, and I've used Nellie's on them from the beginning and loved it - no scent, very concentrated and goes a long way - and cleans really well. From the brief research I've done, it appears to be approved for cloth diapers (it's a natura...

Small update for me... chugging along at about 36.5 weeks. I can tell things in my body are definitely changing and preparing - I'm having new twinges and feelings that I haven't experienced yet.

Re: Any baby wearing parents here?

I plan to get the Baby Ktan (breeze version, since it's fairly warm and humid here a lot). It's gotten some votes on here, and as soon as I looked it up, I knew I'd like it - still a wrap, no structure, but I like the way it works and has a little organization to it, vs. just one long piece of fabri...

Awesome, thank you! They have them for $8.95, which is at least $4 if not $5 less than the new ones, which will add up quick if I have a stash primarily made of these. We hope to use this for the newborn stage, but be phased out of them by around 3 months and hopefully into the one size pockets, sin...

Well we went by the store yesterday to check out the City Select, just out of curiosity - I wanted to push it and get a feel for it, since the City Elite basically pushes like a dream in my opinion.
