  • Forum Post: Selecting a Pump

    Posted 08/14/2011 08:11:14 EDT

    I want to second the "wait to buy" advice. My insurance company said the same thing, but I ended up walking out of the hospital with a Medela PISA that was completely covered. I'm not back at work yet more »

    I believe your work HAS to provide you the time to pump. As a teacher, this means getting coverage for your class. I can understand if you don't want to make waves and force the issue, but if you do, more »

    Slightly off topic, but if there were carpenter ants in that tree and their nest got destroyed, or even disturbed, you might want to make sure they aren't trying to take up residence in any other wood more »

    Quad - Once you're in L&D maybe they don't bother because it's too late? This was at a childbirth class and she said that the nurses had been asked to mention it by the doctors. more »

    The nurse at our childbirth class said that the dr.s at SSH were asking women not to shave or wax in the weeks near EDD. Apparently if you have any of those lovely little red bumps or irritated skin a more »

    Posted 05/03/2011 09:25:06 EDT

    I had m/s from around 8 weeks until 19 weeks. It was a lot of nausea, dry heaves, overactive gag reflex and some actual vomiting. I also got a lot of migraines that would make me vomit. It wasn't the more »

    I never knew how out of breath I would be! It comes and goes, but it is getting ridiculous and since if you don't know me I am still in the "is she chubby or pregnant?" phase, the huffing and puffing more »

    I second the possibility of being more in touch with your body. I can never remember feeling soreness there during ovulation, but the 2nd month we were TTC I did and got so excited that it could be a more »

    The workout thing has been tough for me too. I'm oinly 14 weeks, but I stopped running around 7 weeks (I ran the marathon in April, so this was really weird for me) because of some spotting and crampi more »

    Memes - Lactose intolerance is definitely a quantity thing. As an adult, it's about how much dairy there is at a time (and how sensitive to it the person is,) so I'm not sure how that would play out f more »

    I am so happy to read all these replies- it makes me feel like there will be options! After winter break, I'm going to start telling people at school and hopefully someone there will be able to give m more »

    Especially after reading the article about daycare costs earlier this week, I've been thinking a lot about it! Have any teachers (especially on the South Shore - Whitman area) found day care options t more »

    Wed - I've been getting migraines again too. I used to get them a lot when I was younger. They seemed to get less frequent in college, even before I went on the pill and ever since then I've gotten 1 more »

    I was having mostly mild cramps along with the very mild spotting, but everything is great. I went in to the Dr today and they were just going to do a blood test, but since they aren't open on Saturda more »

    So... I've been spotting, well not really spotting, it's been so little, mostly just slightly colored CM for almost a week. My first real appointment isn't until next week, but I had a phone appointme more »

    This has been one of my biggest fears since before we were even ready to have kids. I may be exaggerating a little bit, but I have been seriously worried about it. I know that sounds crazy, but I was more »

    Congrats Prill!! That's so exciting. We're around the same time, I think I might be 2 weeks ahead of you, but I have a longer cycle, wasn't charting and haven't been to the dr.'s yet so who knows :) more »

    Got my BFP this week! 2 of them in fact! I am so excited, but for some reason, part of me just can't believe it - it doesn't feel real yet. My body feels like I am about to start AF (minor cramps and more »

    A little OT, but I thought this story I just heard from my mom might be relevant to some people here... My uncle apparently asked my parents to be guardians of their kids just in case when we were all more »

    I'm getting ridiculously far ahead of myself here, but I have a BF/pumping question. Once you start pumping do you need to do it on a schedule for any reason? I have a rotating schedule at work and am more »

    I also broke down and tested early and got the BFN. My cycle is usually 29 days, but was 34 last month so I was going to wait until Saturday to test since I wanted to use FMU and am usually in such a more »

    Something else to consider about taking vitamins is not to take too much at the same time. Not that it'll hurt you, but in some cases the body can only process so much at one time and will just flush more »

    I'm usually just a lurker, but I'm still here Alto! AF came late this month and got me excited. I felt like it was 'never' late before, but to be honest I've only been off the pill since April so I do more »
