    GC, I feel like you took what I wrote as an insult... Now, rereading it I can understand that I didn't explain myself well enough (and that apparently, the natural inclination is to jump to thinking t more »

    kiwi, I apologize if I offended you.  That wasn't my intent.  Obviously, this is an emotional and personal decision (stay-at-home vs. day care) and one that starts a great amount of vitriol going amon more »

    lemon, LOL!  I was right there with you.  My DH wanted to take the times to save a bit more, but there was nothing stopping my baby train!  It's amazing to me how the biology takes over! more »

    Manyl, I think it's smart to think about this in advance.  One piece of advice I would add is to try to live off whatever budget you are thinking about for some period of months.  (So, try to account more »

    In Response to Re: October Updates: Did anyone ever feel pain in their lower abdomen in the early weeks?  I am only 5 weeks, and have had a pain there on and off the last couple days and it has been c more »

    ajuly, I am delivering at Mt. Auburn as well.  I am petrified of having a c-section, and they have the best rates around (well, minus a home birth, which I opted not to do for my first).  I am seeing more »

    Silver, I don't know if the test we had was different or if your lab is super slow...  We had the early risk assessment, as it is commonly called, at 12 weeks (the only testing we had done).  We knew more »

    IPW, congratulations!  That is so awesome.  I feel like you were just announcing your BFP on these boards... time flew by (for me anyway, but I wasn't carrying around all that extra weight!)  Love the more »

    ajuly, xmas is a really expensive time to travel, as you are discovering.  That said, DH and I spent xmas in P*nta Cana (omg, BDC won't let me write the name of the city) two years ago.  It's less exp more »

    Ladies (especially Poppy), I think I have found the cure for the "fire nipples."  (Okay, so I am picking up from our conversation a couple of weeks ago in August Updates.)  I hit the recent sidewalk s more »

    Jan, I wonder if you need both the Bob and the Snap and Go?  The reason we chose the Bob Revolution (and not another purely jogging stroller) is the moveable front wheel.  That allows you to use the s more »

    Jan, We are getting the Bob Revolution (because I'm a runner and anticipate getting back into it as soon as possible following birth).  Only certain car seats can fit the adapter, including: • Britax more »

    Pugs, that's awesome!  I know that you were hoping for a girl, so congratulations!  You all are making me antsy to know... but I am holding out! :) more »

    We plan to co-sleep in some way, shape or form.  My DH is a big guy, so I am not sure LO will be in the bed or on a built-out extender or something like the arms reach.  Yes, the AAP advises against c more »

    Posted 09/21/2010 05:53:22 EDT

    Lil, for me (and this may be TMI) I had a difficult time identifying EWCM days... I think it's made difficult by BDing-- and I believe they talk about that in TCOYF-- because of all the other fluids.  more »

    Yeah, Poppy, I am pretty confident that insurance in the US covers that procedure.  In fact, my DH and I often wonder how the trend in circumcision would change if people actually had to pay for it... more »

    IPW, you comment about being a dairy plant made me laugh out loud.  Every time DH and I read about or talk about BFing, he starts mooing.  And then he won't stop! :) more »

    I thought that you weren't supposed to switch between BF and pumping/bottle in the beginning.  I was under the impression that it dimished your supply, messed up whatever semblance of rythm you might more »

    ajuly, put the book down!  It will drive you insane.  That book is the worst for making expectant parents completely paranoid.  I had no issues getting to sleep, but I definitely wake up some (which i more »

    Poppy, I found out about one other doula option last weekend.  I guess you can get a doula-in-training for free.  Apparently they need to observe so many births, so if you are willing to have someone more »

    Not finding out!  Never thought that I could wait, but that's the plan, and I'm excited.  There are gender preferences among my family for my fetus, so I would rather just squelch the snide comments f more »
