nicole, wife & very blessed mom of 2 fun boys '03 & '05 & sweet girl '10. Due 1-6-13
As far as my body and health goes, I am just taking it easy and making sure I am eating well, no caffeine, no advil (i usually take this alot for lupus pain, so i miss it!) and well sadly not riding my husbands 4-wheeler anymore.
What I noticed I am really changing is the way I spend $$ (less eating out, no impulse buys, etc). With another baby I know expenses will add up quickly. This is the 1st baby where my insurance will not cover maternity care (so labs and u/s will be out of pocket) luckily the midwife is reasonably affordable, but you know how it all adds up. Plus the restaurant industry (my dh) took a big hit with the hurricane we had here and with the economy, so $$ is tight. Also, I literally gave away just about all my maternity clothes, baby clothes & gear to friends in need. I will need new slings, 0-3 mo clothes, cloth dipes, blankets, high chair, nursing bras, etc. Things that just add up, so i need to be frugal!
So I am all ears about ways to save $$ with the pregnancy and new baby. I know I want to try to cloth diaper more and longer than I did before. Any other ideas?
