    Thanks, everybody - I'm glad to hear that I'm not selfish in feeling this way! They really are great, and have been an enormous help to us in setting up the house - they're also really easygoing and a more »

    IPW, you've probably already throught through all the insurance possibilities, but just in case...I was gearing up to start IVF last summer after it looked like my 6th cycle of meds + IUI was going to more »

    clc, hopefully you've heard from your doctor or will soon...and this is such a personal question but I'm wondering if there were any...er, marital activities last night? ;) If so, that could possibly more »

    Old news, but re: the bumbo, as someone else mentioned, craigslist is littered with them. I picked one up in like-new condition for $15, and have seen them for even less. Didn't seem worth the $40+ fo more »

    Fuzzy - my doctor advised me to listen to my body in terms of appetite. Throughout my pregnancy, I haven't been eating very much more than I normally do, but I go through phases where I feel hungrier more »

    12 lbs?!? Holy cow! Yeah, I was tempted to ask for an ultrasound, but a.) the doc would have said no, since she sees no issue, and b.) what would the point be? It's not like they'd schedule a c-sectio more »

    clc, glad you had such a good appointment. My doc offered to do an internal exam at 37 weeks, but said it was totally up to me and not necessary, so I declined. I did have my first one today, at 1 day more »

    Thanks for the monitor tips! I'm going to order the Motorola from BrUs today (20% off + free shipping, in case anyone else is looking). Cici - I haven't tried this, but you might be able to get away w more »

    Hi ladies - I hope you don't mind me dropping in from the Pregnancy board with a random baby gear question, but I'd love any wisdom you might have to offer. I'm 37+ weeks along with my first baby and more »

    Hi ladies - I'm busy wrapping up the final loose ends in my last couple of weeks, and the one big question mark I still have is the baby monitor. I'll go bug the infant/toddler board, too, but what mo more »

    Hey cici - I was definitely wearing maternity clothes at least part-time at that point. Do you have a belly band? I found myself expanding too quickly to get a ton of use out of mine, but it's definit more »

    Hey siena - according to my doctor and everything I've read, it's perfectly fine to sleep on your back into the second trimester. I'm (normally) an exclusive back sleeper, so I think I did that 'til m more »

    Hey cici - we just finished our last childbirth class when I was at 36 weeks exactly.  I think my practice recommends finishing your class roughly a month before your due date. If it were me, I'd prob more »
