    Posted 08/25/2011 12:52:30 EDT

    I have a 21 month old and a 3 month old so I know how you feel. I have a couple little things to add. I think you have no idea how much the lack of uninterrupted sleep is affecting you until you get s more »

    I am 38 weeks today. Ugh. My feet and ankles are so swollen by the end of the work day I can barely walk. I can't even get my feet all the way into flip flops. I may start working shorter days or some more »

  • Forum Post: Concerned (kinda gross topic)

    Posted 05/12/2011 07:22:04 EDT

    I had spotting with my first pregnancy at 8 weeks and really freaked out. It turned out to just be "breakthrough bleeding" and it happened 1 or 2 more times. I'm not sure if this is comforting or not, more »

    Thanks jennifyr, starting to feel better today. I will need to re-do Mother's Day, that's for sure! I just had a gas station cashier ask me if I am dilated yet! It seems like a rather personal questio more »

    I am 37 weeks today. DS had been turned transverse (sideways) since 30 weeks, but as of last week he was head down and had stayed there! Fingers crossed that he finds it comfy and stays put until he w more »

    Posted 04/27/2011 12:44:34 EDT

    DH and I did not baptize DS. We were about where you guys are with your beliefs. I would've felt so phony baptizing DS when I don't believe in any of it. The most common comment I got about it from fa more »

    I'm now 35 weeks and at my appointment yesterday my doc said baby feels like he is still transverse, and that I'm measuring like a transverse baby (3 weeks ahead). He's been transverse since at least more »

    I decided to get a new crib and mattress for DS#2. I got one with free shipping from Amazon for $115 and it does convert to a bed. I didn't want to spend the money, but I feel better about it. AFM, I more »

    DS loves Vampire Weekend and the Rolling Stones. He goes to sleep every night to Rockabye Baby Pixies. And on Saturday mornings we frequently rock out to AC/DC. I love to see his dance moves developin more »

    That was a great story am and encouraging to hear about the smooth transition for DD so far. I have 6 weeks to go. I'm much bigger than I was with DS and I'm having trouble keeping up with him at this more »

    Thanks everybody! The scenario that play in my head is that I'm on my way home from work and stuck in traffic on 128 and my water breaks. DS#1 came pretty quickly so I worry about this one coming with more »

  • Forum Post: Did you feel differently the day you went into labor?

    Posted 04/11/2011 10:37:25 EDT

    I'm wondering if anyone felt different or kind of knew the day they went into labor before the real signs of labor started? I was induced my first time around so I haven't experienced going into labor more »

  • Forum Post: Crib to big kid bed - when?

    Posted 04/06/2011 01:00:16 EDT

    I ask because a few moms I know have done it around 19-20 months. DS is 17 months, and I don't think he is anywhere near ready for the freedom of a big boy bed. He would go play with toys in his room more »

    What age did you transition your LO from their crib to a big kid bed?

    Was it a smooth transition or did you run into some challenges?

    I went up two full cup sizes (B to D) with my first. Once I had DS I almost had to go bigger once my milk came in, but managed to stay at full D. I agree with the other posts- buy a couple of bras at more »

    My DS would nurse 15 - 20 minutes per side. When he was a newborn he would always fall asleep while nursing and wake up and start feeding again when I tried to switch sides and that would prolong the more »

    I pumped while working full-time for 5 months without supplimenting and I found the pressure to produce and pump enough to be almost unbearable. I was putting all the pressure on myself. In hindsight, more »
