  1. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! omg i LOVE BABIES!!! you look so so cute and happy girlfriend =) i am so excited for you. a couple things: my sister is cloth diapering her daughter, and they bought the ones that are supposed to fit a newborn all the way until potty training. but my niece was born 7 lbs, and she was still too little to fit. shes about 11 weeks now, and they are justttt starting to make the transition to all cloth diaps. much cheaper, greener, and better for baby IMO. i can ask her for more deets after they have been doing it for a while. also – lets get ice cream! i think bambino needs it… 🙂

  2. Sabrina, you are beautiful. I am really enjoying following your pregnancy journey- partly because I am about 5 weeks behind you and I am fascinated with all things pregnancy.
    I’m curious about the cloth diapering thing,too. I mentioned it to my husband, and he was opposed, but I think it could be a really good thing (and save a lot of money). I’ve been enjoying reading your Baby Center posts, so I’ll be sure to check over there to see what commenters have to say:-).

  3. You look gorgeous! Love the striped top! Where are you guys going?

      pup- we are going to Florida! Literally just for the weekend, but from Philly it’s only a 3 hour flight. I had a Southwest credit so we used that for (most) of the flight cost, and then we used Starwood points for a hotel. I’m stoked since we were able to make something work since we are trying to save and didn’t want to spend a lot of money. Flight + hotel together is costing about $150 which is incredible. Then all we have to pay for is internet (so trig can work), food, and cab rides! Woohoo!

      Oh, and at first we looked at driving to a beach in Delaware but the hotel was $400 a night! And it had horrible reviews about bed bugs!!!! gross!

  4. You look fab! I know it’s hard to watch the scale go up, even though you know it’s supposed to. I have the same troubles some days, but like you, end up shrugging it off.
    I love your baby pic and all your hair! Hope my little one has some, too, but without much heartburn lately, I’m not so sure 🙂

  5. You look amazing! I am still weighing myself also, but I am more worried when my weight goes down then up! I have known before I got pregnant that I was going to cloth diaper. My husband and I are both teachers and anything we can do to save money we will since neither of us make very much. Young House Love has some great posts on cloth diapering that I have read up on, but I’m interested to hear what other people think! And about washcloths instead of disposable wipes…

  6. I have that same tank! Gotta love Target! Glad you’re sleeping better! It is definitely tough to remind yourself sometimes that you’re pregnant and cannot do it all….despite wanting to! I thought about cloth diapering for a while….then we vetoed. I still haven’t ruled it out completely. They’ve made such advances in cloth diapering systems.

  7. I’m so far from getting pregnant or having a baby but I love reading these posts about your experience!

  8. You look great! Love the baby pic too!

    We used cloth diapers (and wipes, since you wash them all together anyhow) with our first and plan to use them again this time. With our first we used prefolds for the first 5-6 months and then switched to fuzzi bunz. There are a ton of great (and adorable!) options. If you have any questions I’d be happy to answer them. 🙂

    I think stage 1 nipples are the slowest flow. We only ever used the stage 1 nipples with my son when he had to have bottles. He was pretty easy though when it came to feeding, he went from breast to bottles of pumped milk and back again with no complaints. I think it really depends on the baby, some are way pickier about bottles and nipples than others.

  9. You look great and sound so excited to be a mom 🙂

  10. Love you in that striped top! You look fabulous. Enjoy these next several weeks.

  11. Gosh it sounds like PB is being such a good daddy throughout your pregnancy! I hope I love being pregnant some day too 🙂

  12. Wow, your husband sounds like he’s being amazing! Have a blast on your babymoon!

  13. Your baby bump is too cute!! I am 26 weeks today and I still have to remind myself it’s ok to not do too much if I don’t feel like it!

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Marissa, I keep feeling like it’s “too soon” to have to slow down, etc, but it really isn’t! If I’m tired I need rest! Congratulations to you!

  14. We are using cloth diapers and I’m loving it. we started in disposables just because we got so many at showers and things, plus we didn’t want to add to the feelings of being overwhelmed in the beginning. After about two weeks of diaper rash, we switched and haven’t looked back.

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Sarah R, When did the diaper rash start? Right away, meaning you started with cloth at 2 weeks of age? If you could go back would you start with cloth right away or was the beginning disposable time very useful?

      • @RhodeyGirlTests, We started cloth at 6 weeks. I would have started sooner, but my husband was still a bit apprehensive, and our little guy was still a little small for the one sized diapers that we decided to use (bumgenius). I think, being first time parents, it was nice to have a little transition time, but would probably start with cloth right away with the next one. The first few weeks are tough enough without having to think about the extra laundry, etc that comes with cloth in my opinion. It’s no big deal now though.

  15. I recently started reading your blog and I want to tell you that you look fantastic at 25 weeks! Also, don’t stress about the scale. A lot of weight gain is water which you will lose so soon afterwards. I wish someone had told me that as I gained more than the recommended 25-35lbs, even though I ate well and exercised almost daily.

    And even if it’s not water weight then just remember that every pound you’re gaining is just making your bambino stronger. I’m glad you’re enjoying this time-it’s an amazing period in one’s life!

  16. You look fabulous!!

    And I hope to use cloth diapers someday too 🙂

  17. You are such a cute pregnant lady!
    And don’t worry at all about the scale. with breastfeeding and walking, I was back in pre pregnancy clothes in 4 weeks, pre pregnancy weight in 3 months and now 8 months later I’m 8 pounds lighter. Youre baby and your body want you to gain weight, enjoy it!

  18. Hi from your fellow BabyCenter Pregnant Mama!

    Sabrina those photos of you as a baby are SO CUTE! Adorable! I’m so excited to see your bambino to compare when he arrives!

  19. You look beautiful, healthy, and happy! I have baby fever, but am not quite ready to start adding to my family so I am loving reading all about your pregnancy experiences. I’m living vicariously through you and learning so much. I feel like I’m going to be so prepared because of you (and some others) who so openly blog about what it’s like to be pregnant. 🙂

  20. This site is really interesting i’m yearning for is there the other examples? however anyway many thanks noticeably because I found that i used to be probing for.
