Quoting Jace's Momma (39):" How many diapers would you recommend for a newb? Like, about how many times a day do they need changing? I just don't know how many to get. lol"



newborn size? not many.
average 10 diapers per day.

As long as your water doesn't break you should be ok. I've heard of people going on pitocin and not progressing so they send them home and try again. So there's always that option maybe?

Have 14 that fit her really well. Then I have 3 more that are nb but just a tad big still. I wash daily. I wait until I've went through about 10-12 to wash. Then the extras get me through until they're done. I'm also using cloth wipes and hy crap is it easier than disposable wipes!!!! And a tip: use disposable until the meconium has all passed. It stained the crap out of my soakers :(

Lmao!! I only have what they gave us at the hospital. I have some in the diaper bag in case I use all my cloth while away since I can only fit a few CDs in there. Plus it's a backup in case for some reason I didn't get the wash done in time
And ran out.

Lol yeah, I figure each pack only had like 40 in it, so that's maybe a week of using disposable about.. then I'll just switch him to his really cute, soft cloth lol

I physically feel so blah. I'm still getting what I HOPE is bloody show, I mean, I thought it was yesterday morning, but it's been 20 hours now & I have no clue how long it goes on for so I don't know if it might be something else? I feel weak/tired, nauseous, gassy & I had diarrhea earlier tonight even though I've dealt with constipation more often than not this pregnancy. My lower back hurts, but nothing in comparison to what it did the last 3 weeks of pregnancy with DD & I'm still getting occasional contractions that hurt mostly in my back. I'm not meaning to come off as whiny or complaining, I just wish my body would make up its damn mind. And I'm nervous about the pink discharge because I'm not sure if it's bloody show (didn't experience it last time) & if it's not I'm worried it's something going wrong, like placenta issues or something. Definitely bringing it up at doctor appointment this morning!

I don't think the placenta would cause pink blood. When my placenta was bleeding it looked like I started my period. It's probably normal mama. I'm sure the time is getting close.

I am ready, as in prepared, but at the same time I'm not because I was really hoping to make it a couple days past due date lol. I know I don't get a choice, baby will come when ready & all. And I'm just so fed up with my body & feel so inadequate...it sucks at getting pregnant in the first place & apparently at going into labor as well.

Sounds like you're getting close! Those are all symptoms of the first stage of labor.

I'm curious to find out how long this can last then, lol! And I didn't experience any of this with first pregnancy, I just started getting contractions the morning before I had DD & by the time I showed up at hospital it had been 20-21 hours, contractions were 4-ish minutes apart like clock work & I was dilated enough for them to offer epidural, although I held out for a few more hours. So this is a completely different experience obviously.

Getting back labor kind of contractions just like last time, 6-7 minutes apart right now & bloody show is getting heavier. Taking warm bath to wait it out & see what happens. Not even been but 10 minutes in tub & they're getting closer. If this isn't it I'm not talking about any more contractions until I either.have baby or go to hospital & they say I'm in labor & get me a room lol.
