I love my prefolds and covers! I have a few Motherease one size that I use at night and just received my first wool soaker today! Can't wait to try it out tonight!! Good luck to you!! I don't regret my decision to CD at all!

I've had some hard contractions and bloody show this past week so they did a check yesterday. 1cm and 70% effaced. 39 weeks today! It's just nice to know that all the work my body has been doing this past week is really warming me up.
