Our mountain of diapers
Each week that goes by, I get a little more anxious and more aware of just how unprepared I am for this child! I have no furniture, except for a pack-n-play. All the baby things that I have received are stacked in my living room and my house is a disaster (no, I will not show you a picture of that! Haha). I recently received a whole bunch of diapers in different sizes from newborn to size three. I was feeling pretty good about being stocked at least for the one important thing – The Diaper Changing Marathon. Then I started to panic – do I have enough diapers?! I mean, I feel like I have a million here, but what is enough and what is too much, and what am to do about all this! AHHHHH!!!!
So I calmed myself down by talking to myself and breathing – in for three 1-2-3….out to five 1-2-3-4-5 and hopped onto Google.com to research, as any person (with two cents living in the 21st Century) would do. I Googled – how many diapers do you need in the first week? Ah- Ha! Bingo!
How many Diapers Will your Baby use is the First Year?
After reading this information, and re-confirming it on some Yahoo! Answers forums that I found, I felt pretty relieved. I think that I am fairly prepared in the diaper realm of mommyhood and ready for the marathon. Thank you Kidsgrowth.com, you really put my mind at ease. At least that is one thing I can check off my list. Now for the furniture….only four weeks left until D-Day!

As of this moment, I know 10 women who are pregnant – all due at different times of the year. These are people I actually know, not just celebrities and their pregnancies. I remember a couple of years ago, I knew 14 women who were expecting! That’s a lot of babies. And a whole lot of baby showers! And then the birthday parties! (And we don’t need to mention all those diaper changes, clothing changes and laundry, right?)
So it got me thinking, could it be something in the water? Or is it a cyclical pattern that women get pregnant every so often? Or is it, perhaps, that I’m just at a phase in my life when almost everyone in my age group is moving on to the next phase of life? Whatever it is, it’s quite amazing that I know so many women who will be giving birth and holding a new bundle of joy within the year.
Congratulations to all my family and friends!
