I found one that has really good reviews. Its only like $70. Id LOVE to get a Medela or an Ameda, but I don't think we'd have the money for it before he's born

Lucky! Tricare won't pay for any ultrasounds other than the anatomy scan. :(

Just out of curiosity, how much do y'all spend on groceries per week? It's just myself (pregnant starved buffalo) and SO (not pregnant but equally starved construction worker)... I tried going into the store with a 50 dollar budget. We went over, and I thought I was doing good :roll:. I don't even see how it's possible to spend less than 75 a week unless you're a coupon fiend....

Since we don't get paid weekly, we split what we buy with each check. He gets paid on the 1st and the 15th. One week we will do meats and any paper products we need and the next we will get any dry groceries and anything else that is needed. We spend about $150 every paycheck. Its 4 of us for now, 2 adults and 2 kids. Once Gabriel is born, and on baby food, I am going to make my own baby food to help with that extra cost.



I don't coupon a lot, BUT I do a little. We buy paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, cups and plates) from either SAMs or BJs.

Just me and hubby spend about 100 a week, we live in Alaska though so it's a little more expensive anyway.
