    I haven't posted here in a while, but I agree with others that the best thing you can do for your supply is nurse nurse nurse.  The more frequently you put your baby to your breast, the sooner your mi more »

    Thanks June.  I'll stick with my doctor's rec.  As a scientist, I tend to side with the CDC.  more »

    I asked my doctor about the flu shot today.  She said any shot is fine, just not the spray.  It doesn't need to be thimerosal free.

    Posted 08/19/2010 08:36:50 EDT

    My OB delivers at SSH (I've yet to hear anything bad about them), but my PCP is at Harvard Vanguard.  I've always been happy with my care there.

    Silver, I was really bloated in the beginning for too.  For awhile it was my only symptom.  It gets better, but then the bump appears :-) more »

    Posted 08/05/2010 09:46:13 EDT

    We're hoping to go with an in-home daycare, but we're running into the same problem- no one knows if they'll have spots available until a month or two beforehand.  I started looking at centers around more »

    Fram, I had an internal a couple weeks ago and the tech inserted it.  She didn't even give me the option to do it myself, but I've heard some do.  My legs were completely covered with paper, so DH saw more »

    Posted 07/26/2010 02:24:55 EDT

    I had a physical with my PCP before we started TTC, but I was due for one anyway.  I started charting right away, but only because I had been on BCP for over 9 years and wanted to know if I was ovulat more »

    Posted 07/20/2010 11:59:36 EDT

    I'm planning to take the full 12 weeks off.  I can use STD for 10 weeks at 100% pay and use vacation time for the remaining two weeks.  I'm really hoping to work right up until my due date, but we'll more »

    Posted 06/18/2010 01:03:53 EDT

    Poppy, it does.  You just have to unclip the seat and turn it around.  It doesn't have a reversible handle like some strollers do.  more »

    GC, I'm not at that stage yet (not visibly pregnant, so I would just look like a crazy woman), but I'm sure I will be.  I saw a red one in Starbucks and knew I HAD to have it! more »

    We're skipping the travel system and going with the UppaBaby Vista and Chicco Keyfit with the car seat adapter.  The Vista is heavier than a snap & go, but it'll work much better on the nasty sidewalk more »

    Cookie, my first appointment was uneventful (only 5 1/2 weeks, so no doppler), but the nurse gave me a ton of info on food & medications.  I've had strong food aversions, so I'll eat anything that doe more »

    Fram, step away from the book!  There is likely absolutely nothing wrong with you, but TCOYF will have you believe you're infertile after 3 cycles of TTC.  Even with perfect timing, it can still take more »
