Cloth Diapering: The Addiction

I like lists. I make TONS of lists, fully intending on following them and having everything organized.
Then, I edit my list. Numerous times... so many times, in fact, that I end up just making a new list.

Case in Point: My CD list.
I think the strongest argument against CDing would be how easy it is to get addicted to. If I'm this bad having a boy, what would I do with a girl to put in all the frilly diapers? Somehow, my very reasonable list of a limited number of 6ish Adam-friendly BumGenius X-Smalls (AIO) + 6 kissaluvs (fitteds) + 2 doz prefolds + 6 thirstie covers has exploded to 23 Adam-friendly BGxs + 12 kissaluvs + 0 prefolds + 2 Thirsties AIOs + 5 duo wraps sz 1 + 1 zookies cover + 2 woolies that I crocheted myself + 1 suprise comic book AI2 for Corbin's nb photos.
Before prefolds, that's 40 diapers... oops. Now I'm debating on even getting the prefolds. I figure the covers are good, as they're duo wraps and will last a while. But the rest are all nb size.

No more nb diapers... no more nb diapers....

Procrastination is my middle name

So, a few posts ago I posted a list of things we still needed to do... Erm... I don't think I've crossed off nearly as much as I should have between now and then.
Get Bedding (waiting for it to come in the mail) Super late, and it wasn't my fault.
Get Mattress Thanks Aunt Cindy!
Get Wall Art
Paint Mural
Wall Letters
Organize his clothes
Wash clothes
Figure out the closet
Order more Cloth Diapers (prefolds from ebay, BG 4.0) Still working on this. I have a list for that too. I'll add it in another post :)
Finish up birthing classes (5 weeks left!) Only 2 weeks left!
Have baby showers (1 down, 2 to go!)
Buy leftover neccessities (obviously not done yet)
Finish painting guest room (it's primed!! and will be painted THIS week)
Try to paint the bathroom
Paint kitchen wall that was fixed
Paint kitchen and living room ceilings that were fixed
Find something for guests to sleep on (Done! Thanks to Adam's grandma & Pawpee, we now have a trundle bed that goes from a single/daybed to a double)
Try to paint our bedroom
Get house clean (um... I work on this, but it keeps getting dirty!)

Hello 3rd Tri!

I can't believe we're finally at the 3rd trimester. It feels like just yesterday I was feeling like I just was meant to never get pregnant, and then being shocked that the first (successful) Clomid cycle worked. I can't wait to meet our little boy, and if time continues on the way it has been the past 28ish weeks, then he'll be here before I know it!

How far along are you?: 27w5d

What I'm looking forward to this week? We have our first shower on Saturday :)

How big is baby?: I know he's 2+ lbs, but other than that, I have no idea. I really want a 3d ultrasound
Weight gain/loss?: I don't weigh my self on my own. I know as of last appointment I had gained 6 lbs total (3 lbs over my pre pregnancy weight) 

Maternity clothes?: Yup. There are a few shirts I can wear, but most are too short.
Sleep?: Sleep is so-so. I have good nights and then nights I'm up and down to the bathroom and tossing and turning to get comfy.  

Best moment this week?: Finally being in the 3rd tri!
Food cravings?: Apple Pie. Yum.
Gender?: Still a boy I hope lol
Movement?: All the time. I finally felt hiccups the other day and I feel him stretching and pushing on me from the inside. 

Belly button?: Still in, but more shallow 

Labor signs?: None, the extra water has helped.

What do I miss?: Being able to bend over easily.
