I don't know about the movement location changing, but I'm inclined to agree with you that it's cause baby has changed position. Perhaps someone else will have something more helpful to add
Everything is good here. Had a family gathering last nite to celebrate my brothers birthday, got to show off the ultrasound video and pics and the big belly.
I'm reading a book called Having Faith by Sandra Steingraber, an ecologist. It's really good and I recommend it wholeheartedly... though be warned that it is kind of angering and depressing. She writes about her pregnancy and interspersed with that is a biological and ecological look at pregnancy.. mainly how toxins and pollutants in the environment affect babies in utero and how it affects breastmilk - and needless to say these are not good effects. It makes me feel outraged that so much contamination of the environment and our bodies and our babies is going on because of the greed of corporations and the incompetence of governments, especially in America. And it makes me depressed, too, that I have to worry about these things and not be able to just enjoy eating fish or fruit or meat, or, you know, breathing and drinking water. I cannot drink the well water here at the farm because all the cows in the area have polluted the groundwater with e. coli, which is not a chemical polluntant, but still, we have to bring in gallons of bottled water every week, until we cough up a few thousand bucks to have city water put in, which will hopefully be soon. And in lots of places the immunilogical (sp? is that even a word?) boosts that breastmilk brings is nearly cancelled out by the immune-system effecting toxins that get passed from mother to baby in that same milk. What else is astonishing is the lack of information easily available to the general public about this. There's research papers, and agencies that track the toxins in breastmilk and their effects, more so abroad than here in the US, but breastfeeding publications don't discuss this at all.
*sigh* Like I said it's a wonderful book, well written and interesting and even poetic, but it arouses strong negative feelings.
Tomorrow is twenty three weeks for me. I don't know if I posted this here yet but I found out at my appointment last week that I gained eight pounds last month! Up from a pound an a half gained last month. This babe sure is growing in strange spurts
My next appointment, Feb 24, I will have another u/s to get a photo of the heart, and then my March appointment will be when I get the GD test... I asked her if I had to take it and she told me that I didn't have to take anything and there wouldn't be any repercussions if I refused but that she would recommend it as there is a history of diabetes in my family. So I'm going to go ahead and do it. Hopefully will pass it fine.
So, I'm ordering most of my diapers from diaperco, as they have that fabulous MDC discount, and this is what I have come up with for a newborn list:
6 kissaluvs, 4 fuzzibunz, 3 wonderoos, 20 cpf, 4 hemparoo prefolds, and from somewhere else I'm ordering 6 proraps covers. I'm also going to be crocheting some (dunno how many) wool wraps. Going to use disposables for the meconium stage.
We do not have a washer and dryer. My inlaws live right next door to us however and they welcome us to use theirs, which we do. I'm not sure if this invitation extends to diapers, we haven't asked yet, although they do know we are CDing.
If anyone has any advice or comments or suggestions about my diaper plans please share them! This is my first so obviously I've never CDed before and can use all the helpful hints I can get.
Well I guess I'll skidaddle now that I've written a novel!
