hippie stuff

i spent many hours today researching cloth diapers. yes, cloth. i am such a hippie!! cloth diapers have really come along way....they look so cozy....i kind of want some for me....wonder if they make my size.
cute husband comment of the day: i sent him this link and he said "i like the brown ones!" which totally made my day.

speaking of hippies, i made an appointment with a Midwife.....it was time to graduate from the doc i had been seeing who sadly does not deliver babies anymore. I had a visit with him last week...we discussed sushi, when to go off the progesterone....natural delivery.....and he gave me a prescription for something to help with the puking. just a note: he said sushi was ok to eat! at some point, i mean, when i have an appetite for food again...i may indulge!

at first....the meds worked. i had a couple of days with no puking!!! and then yesterday i didn't even take the meds and felt good! i was able to grocery shop, cook, and even eat!!! i know!!! of course this also concerned me...because as much as it is awful to puke all the time....it is reassuring that i am pregnant. i know, twisted....but true.....i like to feel like crap because comforts me.

any worries went away when i puked up my rice krispies this morning....so whoohooo!
i feel like crap! yay! and the meds are not working! yippy!

so the appointment with the Midwife is on Oct 26th. i will be 10 weeks. there will be no ultrasound at the visit, but they do use the doppler to hear the heartbeat. can't wait to hear it.

oh! almost forgot to share......i drove to Taco Bell....at 10am last week....in my pajamas.....for a bean burrito with no onions and a Pepsi. it was either that or i was going to die.

give me burrito, or give me death.

ps it had been a decade since i had had taco bell or soda. remember?! i am a HIPPIE!!!
now i feel so conflicted.


  1. okay hippie friend, i love you but i'm going to get real with you... do you remember how often newborns poop? especially breast fed ones? you will be washing these things literally ALL DAY LONG! I think it's a great idea for later when they are taking more solids and not pooping every hour. just my opinion :)

  2. oh sarah.....don't worry...i have done TONS of research on this subject. the goal is t get a big enough stash that you do laundry every 2 days. it is incredibly easy to cloth these days. i am really excited about doing my part and not being wasteful. we will still probably use disposables every once in awhile....but my goal is to cut it way back. i have already ordered some cloth dipes! i am so excited! and, btw, it is WAY easier to cloth only breastfed babies....you just throw it right in the wash...no dumping or pre-rinsing required. breastfed baby poop is easier to clean.

  3. Congrats on the pregnancy! I am so excited for you!!!!! Glad to hear everything is going well so far! Yeah for the heartbeat!!! :-)
