For a week, I really thought I was over the first trimester nausea. I was feeling good (mostly) and was up and moving around.
And then a few days ago, it hit again. And now I feel like this:
Just lying around on my couch, moaning, and having Princess Leia in a gold bikini be my chained slave. Well, not that last one.
There are so many things I want to do before Julian starts kindergarten next week, but probably won't do. I know, I'm growing a person who is currently the size of a fig and that would make anyone feel crappy, but having an existing kid while being pregnant is new to me. I want to spend time with my little boy. All summer, he's been so sad that I haven't been able to really play with him. Enough of this sickness already! I just need to keep reminding myself that this won't last forever, even though it really feels like it right now. And I'm not even able to have all the good anti-sickness pregnancy remedies like saltines, or even TUMS. Do you know what I had to do last night for heartburn because I can't find any gluten-free antacids on the market? I drank a teaspoon of baking soda in some water and it was one of the grossest things I've ever had. But it worked.
So, enough complaining. Because I'm sure you all just love reading long paragraphs where I bitch about how uncomfortable pregnancy is, even though I willingly put myself in this situation. Right. Shutting up.
Have any of you moms (and dads) used cloth diapers with good results? Do you have any brands you think are better than others? I am very seriously considering using cloth diapers with this baby, and want to arm myself with as much knowledge as possible, since there are so many options. The thought of using disposable diapers again for 3 years, and having them end up in a landfill just makes me so sad. I can't do it. Research on the most awesome cloth diaper in existence begins now.
