    KAM: My MIL also comes to visit for 3-6 weeks a year from Europe.  She doesn't sound nearly as.. um... annoying as your ILs do, but I finally figured out her deal.  She wants to help, but is afraid of more »

    Chiclet - My babies were also slow gainers, but always managed to stay on "their" curves.  I would tend to agree with FRAM that a scale might be a good idea for your sanity.  You could weight him befo more »

    My DH took DD (3yo) and DS (22 months) to one of those plaster places and had them paint me a platter with their handprints as a mother's day gift.  It was a creative and sentimental gift that I loved more »

    IPW - congrats!  Brothers!  Very exciting :) One question though -  Materniti21 gives you a risk factor?  I thought it told you definitively yes or no if the fetus has trisomy 13, 18 or 21 and should more »
