"Hello All!" -An Introduction (who would want to read this?!)

Hello Moms!

I'm Dianna, and although I joined back at the end of June, my stomach is finally feeling strong enough again that I can jump on the computer more often!  :)

I am 20 weeks along in my first pregnancy. So I am due sometime in early December. My husband and I are waiting with anticipation for that day to discover whether the Lord has blessed us with a little boy or girl, who so far seems very healthy.

And my driving thought of the day rests on the topic of "Diapers: disposable or cloth? That is the question..." I've been doing some research, though I've been finding other mother's comments on articles to be more helpful than the actual articles. And currently I am leaning in the direction of giving cloth a try, perhaps after the first 6 months (I'm familar with the disposable, and I figure this being our first child any familiarity will be a good thing in the first few months). Now I'm looking towards researching the logistics of the diapers, i.e. types of cloth diapers, absorbtion options, dirty storage, care of, etc. So if anyone has any good pointers or links to resources, that would be great!

Thanks!

Welcome to the group, I'm Courtney. My boys are 10, 7 and 5.

I cloth diapered. There are a few cloth diaper groups on here, they would be helpful. :)

Welcome to the group! I'm currently 20 weeks with twins, I'm due 12/10. Disposable diapers for me. Since I'm having twins, I'll have enough to deal with without learning how to use diapers correctly.

Hi Booaura!

We have similar due dates! I've been told December 5. Though I am only having one. Being our first, I am happy to only have one. I couldn't imagine that chaos with twins right away. Are they your first? Good luck with them, either way! Yes, I figured for the first six months I'd stick with disposables until I get used to being mom, then give the cloth a try.

If you quote people, it shows them that you're responded to them :)

No, they aren't our first, we have three other children, they're 4, 2, and 6 months. Thanks, I'm going to need it. It's been a hard pregnancy already. I just want to make it to the end, whenever that is.
