I will! I've never used fuzzibunz before! But figured I'd try! We usually use sunbaby or BumGenius on my older daughter! My girls tend to be 9lbs or bigger but my boys have been 7&8 lbs...so we'll see! Haha.

I got fuzibunz one size. I purchased 32 (I know that's alot, but I had the $ to do it) and a sprayer. I have used FZB on a friends baby and loved it, so I'll stick to one brand. Some people prefer a variety, but I figure if I don't know the difference, I'll love them anyway. You can use a 10% off coupon of "10offbunz" and if you purchase in the 6 count packages, it's a great deal! (and if they are out of stock, email them that you want to make a large purchase, and they will give you an extra 10%) .



I LOVE them. They are so soft, and they seem to fit well. I even tried it on my LARGE almost 5 year old to see if it would work on a potty trainer :) And tried on my BFF's newborn... also fit. They come with 2 inserts and an extra elastic, so I think it is a great bang for your buck. It's a little more than the other brands, but I didn't like how cheap and leaky the sunbaby's were. I haven't had enough experience with bumgenius, but I have heard they are between sunbaby and fuzibunz quality.



EDIT: I also suggest:



blueberry diaper pail liner (at least 2)
Simple Human diaper bin (on amazon)
Bac-out for tough stains and odor control.

So far I have a few xsmall fuzzibunz and some prefolds and thirsties covers! I plan to get some more cover and prefolds and probably about 12 more pockets. I hate washing every day. Lol. I want to be able to go at least a day or 2! Plus my 19 month old is still in diapers so I'll be washing diapers ALL the time!

I honestly don't "feel" pregnant. At this point with my other kids, I really felt pregnant....this time, I am substantially smaller, and I have zero....anything. I just...I don't feel pregnant. My health has gone to shit, as expected...my pregnancies have all been really hard on me physically, but...I don't feel pregnant. Just like I've had a string of being sick. I honestly have a really hard time even imagining that at the end of all this there will be a baby. The only other successful pregnancy I've had that I was this...I don't know the right word, maybe disconnected? from, was with my daughter, but I never doubted that there would be a baby at the end of it. I can't imagine myself holding him/her, I can't imagine baby stuff in my house again...it all just seems like it isn't really happening, I don't feel like I am pregnant.



I'm really scared that I'm going to have a hard time bonding with the baby since, logically, I know that a pregnancy means a baby. Logically, I know there is someone in there...but mainly because I've seen it a few times now. Like, I seriously feel like, had I not seen the baby on the ultrasounds, I would think the pregnancy test had been wrong. I'm so scared I'm going to feel this disconnected from it once it's here, like I'm not going to have that maternal rush that I had with my other kids....I felt close to them, bonded to them, from the minute I found out I was pregnant. This time, it all just seems like some passing phase, nothing permanent.



My personal life is a wreck right now, and god sometimes I even hate myself for it.I don't know what to do. I don't know how to fix any of it, and I'm so scared. This is just the tip of the iceberg...

Elle: *tight hug* I kinda know what you're going through... we planned this baby... but part of me never even wanted another... I just agreed to another because hubby wanted another and we had agreed to two children before we even got married.



It's freaking me out how disconnected I am from this one also... I was so excited for DD and so in love. This time... I often forget about it and don't even really imagine it or anything... >_<



I'm sorry your personal life is crazy, I hope it resolves soon. *hug*
