Hello! It's so nice to read up on how you are all doing. Doing well here, although I switched prenatal vits to get more Mg, as leg cramping is becoming interfeering and annoying day and night (although not consistently or in any sort of pattern). I am so glad thatwe'll have another naturally delivering mama! YEAH NICOLE! And Leenie, your news is no less wonderful! As far as GD is concerned, weight is a POSSIBLE causal factor, as it can be in Type II : iot, type II can come and go according to the patient's weight as one of many factors. This is not always the case, and definately not the case in those with a family history etc. Genetics plays a big role.
Jessi - I love your new dipes too! They are too cute! I have a total mishmosh of dipes, some of which Dh does not like to use, so I keep chuckaways on hand for those times... I'm less sincere about my commitment this time around, but I do plan on cloth diapering the majority of the time. I love the feel of them, and getting to be skin to skin with the babe more often is a GOOD thing, I think. I wanted to give you and anyone else wanting the info the heads up on a place I used in Canada. They have some awesome dipes, and lots of other stuff too. It's a kind of a wholesale diaper place, and they buy a lot of closeout stuff. Dh's favorite dipes are these ones we got there, with a kind of fleece inside and a tough poly outside. They were originally made for patients in hospital, but theywent chapter 11 and this lady bought them up. They are called Unlimited Discout Diapers Corp and their toll free # is 1-866-DIAPER1. They also have an email email@example.com
but no website (yikes!). They do have a TON of stuff and just for example, the aio I wrote about above costs $5 each. That's like 5-10$ less than anything else on the market...EACH! They have lots of Bummies stuff, MotherEase, and whatnot. Ok, that's my pitch for my pal Karen. Feel free to mention my name when/if you ever need stuff that they can help with. (I just bought a new set of dipes and they were $5CAN plus shipping - what I did with the larges that we had I just do not know...).
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! I am grateful, grateful grateful for it all. Adios, andy
