If Questions – 3

If you had to explain the meaning of love and hate to a child, how would you do it?If you had to make the case for both nature and nurture by using the personalities of your kids as examples, what would you say?

Diapers

DIAPERS AND COVERS:Ok, fitted diapers for a newborn - Kissaluvs size 0 (get on Melanie's onelist and when she makes an announcement, order.) They run $8.50 each and are SO worth each and every penny. They completely contain all BM blowouts - I've NEVER had a leak onto a cover with these diapers. These diapers will fit from 6lb or so (and fit WELL) to about 15lb. If you don't get any other diaper, get these. SAHM and Sweet Peas are also good newborn diapers and are about $2 cheaper than Kissaluvs. They don't hold a blowout though. They come in pretty prints and are flannel. I think Brenda (Sweet Peas) only does velcro but I believe that Anthea (SAHM) does both velcro and snaps. For the newborn, I'd suggest velcro. The fit of both SAHM and Sweet Peas is very similar to a sposie.

GBS Testing

What do you all think about the GBS test? This is one thing I haven't done much research on. What are the benefits to this test? I read a little on it but was wondering if anyone had personal experience?

Tyring to Conceive After A Miscarriage

Man, I didn't realize this was going to be so hard. We starting trying again this cycle and the past week has been grueling. I am looking at every action of my body and analyzing it "Could this mean I'm pregnant; I have this symptom and that symptom and this symptom." It is so hard. I KNOW it is not good for me to get wrapped up in this but I'm having a hard time finding a way to get over it.
