lisedea & tigers - It is encouraging to hear you aren't having to track every bite. I think we will try to count protein since that is a bit of a challenge, but I also think our bodies know better than any book what to do! And I don't like the idea of, say, eating a candy bar to meet some calorie goal.
Wishin' - do you like the Flip covers as much/more compared to the Thirsties/Bummis? I was thinking they were super cute. Since we are having two it is making it easier to resist the allure of all the fancy pocket diapers. When the teenager was little there weren't so many options and I did diaper covers and prefolds. I have been so amazed by all the new diaper technology, and want to believe it is somehow amazing, but I also don't like the idea of washing the whole diaper more often vs. re-using the same cover a bunch.
I was also vegetarian with my pregnancy, and I LOVE it when people try to tell me it is unhealthy because then I can tell them about my 9 lb. 9 oz. baby who was the picture of health, and vegan until age 5 and in the 95th percentile for height/weight (and 6 foot 3 at 16). It feel like it is going to be an interesting test to see what our future OB says about a vegetarian twin pregnancy.
AFM - surviving my first week back on night shift after a year on straight days. It is really challenging not to tell my good friends at work when nothing but conversation is happening at 4am, but I am determined to hold out another 6 weeks.
