    Hugh, I am right with you on the kicks all night long. My LO loves wriggling once I lay down for the night. DH thinks it's awesome, but I could do without it for a night or two! Tang, we used low VOC more »

    I've been seeing Dr. Bose in Woburn as well. I agree with Liv that it sometimes seems like she's rushing through appointments, but overall I've been happy with her practice. The nice thing is that the more »

    Hib, very sorry for your loss. When I had a m/c, my dr prescribed Misoprostol. It definitely wasn't painless, but it sounds like it might be preferable to a D&C. bostongrl, I hear ya on the third tri more »

    Kar, the gummy prenatal I was taking when really morning sick didn't have iron - it upset my stomach further. But I took another look and the normal prenatal I'm on now does. It actually says it's 150 more »

    Welcome, Hibernian. My husband and I had a similar experience, with a miscarriage at 8 weeks. We'd only told our families, so we didn't have that many people to break the news to. This time around, we more »

    Tangerine, the glucose test is done around 24-28 weeks to test for gestational diabetes. Boston, I didn't know about the ab separation business either. The joys of pregnancy, huh? Sounds like we're in more »
