I get irritated wearing pads as well and switched to the diva cup last year. But I have been using organic disposable pads and it hasn't been a problem at all. Maybe you could look into getting something a little more natural with no bleach?
I haven't shrunk down that much, but that was expected since I lost the weight gradually last and I know it will happen eventually. I am actually feeling more confident this time because of that. But it still feels strange to look, but not be, pregnant:) I was reading an article this morning and it made me think of this thread. http://jezebel.com/how-to-lose-the-baby-weight-in-just-three-lightning-fas-5993518
"..Interesting that it's a wound. I assumed it was just like shedding, like with a period." nstewart How my midwife explained it when she showed us the placenta was that since it was attached to the uterus, then where it detached was a wound that had to heal.

I then went to my midwife appointment at one and she swept my membranes and said my cervix was very soft and she could easily get two fingers in. My contractions intensified some then more like ten to fifteen minutes apart, but still quite variable. My mom and sister arrived and two of my close friends came to be with, but by the time it got...
Beautiful jacqelinej! And I love the name! All the babies are so perfectly gorgeous that it's making me that much more impatient to meet my own /jealous;)
I just got mine in the mail this morning and they are so lovely! Thank you all so much!
Oh, nstewart, what a gorgeous baby you made!
