polyhymnia, yeah, there is the whole unknown of cloth diapering - I have the fitteds but now that I see the sale on prefolds I am considering sending those fitteds back and getting prefolds instead. Even the covers for Thirsties are meant to go with just two pieces of "stuff" to lay into them. I thought the liners attached to the covers of thirsties, but they don't. I think I am going to take back the rest of the Thirsties liners and get more covers instead. I think I have read to have 2 dozen diapers in rotation if you do laundry basically every day, 3 dozen if you want to do laundry every day. With 6 to 8 wet diapers a day and 2 to 5 poopy diapers every day with some of those being an overlap, a dozen diapers a day seems reasonable. I am committed to cloth diapering because frankly I don't want all the chemicals from disposable diapers on my babies bottoms and disposables times 2 are crazy expensive. Yes, I have to pay for water to wash my diapers, but I don't think that will even come close to how much it would cost for disposables. I use cloth feminine products so it just seemed natural to use cloth diapers for my babies.
Glad your birthing class went well. It is aways encouraging to feel you are prepared. Hopefully you can work out the whole heplock/shot thing. You sure wouldn't want to faint in labor.
faithrainbow, glad you enjoyed your dance class. It seems so easy to overdue it these days being pregnant.
AFM, the rest of the weekend was uneventful. Met with my doula for our last prenatal meeting. Discussed some of the things I learned from my ob - like the fact that the delivery of the placenta is very medically managed at the hospital that I am going to - they routinely give cytotec which isn't even meant for obstetrical use to expel the placenta faster. It is meant to be used in people with ulcers! SMH! http://www.rxlist.com/cytotec-drug/warnings-precautions.htm
