30 weeks 3 days
gosh, i'm getting a late start this week and there are already so many replies!
trueblue, sorry about the return of the leukocytes. and i love your bowling ball story!
best travel wishes to piglet!
wannabmommie, glad you like your birth class! we don't start ours for another 2 weeks.
who was it that mentioned the semi-symptomless yeast infection? i might have one but it's not causing me any problems... i'm eating extra yogurt and making sure to wash thoroughly and change my underwear.
as for food, i'm in a pleasant state where i don't have any real aversions or cravings and i'm not constantly hungry either. just comfortable although i certainly eat more than when i'm not pregnant!
sorry to all those with bad haircuts! i'm not at all adventurous with my hair (it's massively crazy so there's not much i can do if i want it to be manageable).
oh, and i'm happy my silly experiences (getting stuck and strep ass problems) bring a laugh!
the body can be a great source of entertainment on so many levels!
QOTW: baby stuff... well, this is our first, so we didn't start out with anything really... but i also don't think a baby needs that much.
we've got a starters supply of diaper covers and a couple fitteds but we're using a service at the beginning then we'll see what works for us before we buy more. i had a preggo brain moment and bought 3 covers in the wrong size so i need a couple more if i don't want to be doing laundry twice a day. and i need to go to the crafts store to get fabric for wipes... or maybe we'll just get a zillion baby washcloths.
we have a little clothes but will need more for sure. we have one pouch sling. MIL is sending two big boxes of stuff which probably includes a LOT of baby blankets and hats.
we have a moses basket where the baby will take naps and possibly sleep on our bed in the basket too. i suspect it will just sleep on one of us instead, but we'll see. no crib, i doubt we'll find the need for one and if we do we can get it then.
we've got car seats.
we need some standard baby stuff like a snot sucker and thermometer and care items like that and i also need to get my birthing supplies together still. i also need to get a breast pump and bottles as i will be returning to work when the baby is a few months old and i will be pumping so dh can feed it EBM (he'll be SAHD).
other stuff like a stroller or bouncy seat or stuff like that can wait until the baby is here... that way we won't end up with stuff we don't really need or that the baby doesn't like.
that turned into quite a long answer for the QOTW!
