    Congratulations, WPP!  Must be a relief to have her here finally :)

    Hey, so I had my baby!  I was induced Saturday and he was born early Sunday morning.  8 pounds and 1 ounce.  Things went less than well--his heart rate kept tanking when I tried to push, and that mean more »

    Ugh, Jenn, I'm so sorry to hear that :(  I'll keep thinking good thoughts for the appointment tomorrow.   Northern, I'm so sorry for your bad news, too.   And Trouble, I'm so sorry for your loss--but more »

    Jenn, so sorry for the scary news--thinking of you!  Did they do a beta at all?  if so you could always ask for another to try to get some information while waiting for the next ultrasound.  Good luck more »

    WPP, I agree with Chiclet on this.  Stand your ground.  I found even brief visits right after the baby was born really exhausting.  We also had a very small apartment after the first baby was born, an more »

    I delivered at Mass General last time too, and they never tried to take the baby away from me--all the testing and so forth took place in our room.  They also were very good about giving me the baby r more »

    IPW, we're not doing much special.  My daughter is not even two, so her ability to understand what's going to happen is pretty limited.  We do talk about "baby brother" a lot, and it's actually helped more »

    Cici, do I remember rightly that you're still nursing?  I really didn't feel pregnant at all this time compared to last time--I especially remember that last time I had extreme breast tenderness, and more »

    WPP, I think I probably am next!  I'm due on the 21st.  I'm actually feeling better than I was--I still can't walk that much but I think the baby has dropped and that's given me a little relief in ter more »

    Good luck, Northern. And Wed, I'm so terribly sorry for your loss.     AFM, I'm almost 37 weeks and experiencing really terrible posterior pelvic pain--I actually can't walk more than a block or so an more »

    Congratulations, Cici!  I had a similar experience--took me 15 months to conceive my DD, one to conceive this LO.

    WPP, I was anemic in my first pregnancy and took Floradix, and it was like breathing life back into my veins.  It's a liquid and it's supposed to be easier for your body to absorb than the pills, and more »

    Cici, I didn't menstruate for the first 13 months of my daughter's life, due to breastfeeding.  When I cut down how often I was pumping at work, I immediately had a period; the next month I used the o more »

    Neither of us has family close by (our parents are 3 and 4 hours away) and that's been just fine. The truth is, I realized once my daughter was born that I found my in laws--and sometimes also my pare more »

    My doctor has said don't fly after 36 weeks, and use my judgment about travel in general.  I think it'll be okay to go to New York.  The question is really whether I want to or not, especially since p more »

    Sunshine, just a thought--my DD was mostly just eating our food by that age, but when she was sick she really loved having those fruit pouches that they can just suck down.  She would wolf those right more »

    At the point where it's been a week or so, I would insist that the doctor do tests.  I won't even freak you out with the story of my daughter's illness-- it's not likely that your daughter has the sam more »

    SS, congratulations!  I hope by now you've got both your babies home.  IPW, so glad the scan went well!  That's exactly the kind of thing I would freak out about; I'm glad everything looks great.  So more »

    Trouble, ugh :(  I also did antibiotics for GBS early in my pregnancy and was worried about that exact thing--luckily I dodged that bullet.  I hope you've gotten an answer from the doctor and are on t more »
