I am now pregnant. Well, as weird as that sounds, what I mean is that people can actually see I am pregnant now. I have a gorgeous bump and I do not feel like a whale. I am just pregnant. 23 weeks. Wow. For me it has been so great. I am so thankful it has been this easy.
I feel Kitten regularly now, though hubby is yet to experience the feel of Kitten moving. I love watching my tummy move, especially once I have given it a rub. All warm and fuzzy.
I have started my diaper collection….we own one diaper currently. I need to speak to a friend about it, and then we shall get more, cloth diapers. I know everyone thinks we are crazy to do the cloth thing, but we are determined to try it. I am an advocate of responsible living, and I want to instil that in our son too. Moreover, where better to start, than cloth diapering.
Hubby and I realise that we may be making life difficult for ourselves, but being responsible is not always the easy path. Maybe if someone else realises that it works fine, they too will do it. We are a society excessively used to instant gratification; we have forgotten that hard work pays off.
Please do not think this is an attack on parents who choose to use disposables, we may be those parents too.
We have never had a child, so we are still in the idealistic world of how it will be and the things our son will and will not do. Come ask me about it after the birth, I may be singing a different tune.
Until the bubble bursts, we will live in that ideal world. What else is more fun than to be able to dream?
