We are still sick...can't seem to rebound out of this sickness since we got norovirus, it just wiped us out completely. :( I've always had such a good immune system and we've never experienced anything like this before...it's so disheartening. Every time we think we're pulling out of it, we are infected with something new...or a "slight cold" turns into horrible, rattling chest congestion. Right now, we've all got a terrible head and sinus thing...everyone running fevers and feeling achy and just generally shitty. We're doing everything we can to come out of it, there is just nothing more to do but wait for warmer weather so we can air the house out and try and get some sun.
I've been focusing on replacing my kawaii AIO dipes with a new stash of all cotton fitteds/prefolds and wool covers for this baby and you know how obsessive and all-consuming finding good used dipe deals can become! So I'm keeping busy, but feeling so tired and sicky-sick. I'm finding great deals, though...my stash is nearly complete! Don't worry, there will be pictures for those of you who like that sort of thing! ;) Yesterday I scored TWO DOZEN of the fluffiest, most beautiful Green Mountain red edged (medium) cotton prefolds plus 7 Bummis Super Whisper Wraps (med) for $25!! Go Craigslist! Can you believe it? I've been focusing on wool for covers...but man, I would have paid the $25 for just the prefolds, you know? So I don't mind picking up some bummis covers, they'll be used for sure. Other than that, I'm finding some awesome deals...an MDC mama sold six beautiful Bella Bottom fitteds to me for $6/dipe...I have made out like a bandit on diaperswappers.com and also etsy with fitteds and awesome wool covers...so I'm nearly there and not breaking the bank...I'm stoked!
I had a MW appointment yesterday and the baby is doing so wonderfully. Great heartbeat, head down and already low in my pelvis...my babies always do that! It's great news because my last two did the same thing and "stuck" that way with no "funny business" until birth...but it's a little bit of a bummer because my last two also lived IN my vagina for the last two months of pregnancy....like, by 33 weeks they were about an inch inside my vagina, it gets hard to pee properly, etc and I'm not looking forward to that. Though, I wouldn't mind a third 90 minute labor, so you know...everything is a tradeoff.
Anyway, I'm just checking in and saying "hey". I hope you're all doing well and feeling fine..lots of hugs from me to you and sweet kisses from my June Bug to yours. <3 <3
