    Congrats to everyone who are at the beginnings of their pregnancy! It is very exciting to be starting out and it sounds like you all are having the pretty typical range of experiences so far. With the more »

    Hi Chiclet! Welcome to the pregnancy boards - very exciting to see so many people looking forward to next Spring :-) I was given a diagnosis of PCOS when I was 17 (have had a milder course than most I more »

    Congrats cwag! I'm glad that things turned out well for you, despite not getting the epidural in time. After the birthing class for DS#1, my DH and I were TERRIFIED that the active pushing stage was g more »

    I would agree with what has already been posted - showed a lot faster with #2 than with #1. This time around it was very early into the second trimester (like Kiwi - 13-14 weeks) when I found that I n more »

    Ditto on the congrats to everyone getting BFP's and in the first trimester! Sending sticky thoughts for all of you. I was SUPER sick with this pregnancy, when I hadn't been nearly as bad with the firs more »

    Congrats Rama! Made it to 32 weeks here and can't wait to be done! There is still way too much to do at home and work to be ready, but I'm having much more sciatica/heartburn/discomfort with #2. I can more »

    Lilly - I will definitely tell you that you know your family best, and if the parts of those movies that are scary/sad/more adult themes and that is something that doesn't work for you, then don't sho more »

    Oops it is July already! I hope that everyone is able to stay cool with the weather - having to hike up the hill to my car at work and be in the hot sun and get to a hot car, etc. makes me soooo uncom more »

    Hi all! I'm been lurking for a while, but haven't had time to post anything recently. I'm now 20 weeks into this pregnancy, and it is totally kicking my butt! DS#1 is almost 18 months old and is into more »

    With pain management or birthing plan, I think you have to keep it flexible. I knew that for me, I wasn't opposed to pain management (shots or epidural), so I just went with it. I started with just th more »

    I grew up in MA, and the towns have always had different cut-offs. Where I went to kindergarten/elementary/middle school, the cut-off was in December, so I started kindergarten before I turned 5 (b-da more »

    Glad to hear so much good news as people get closer to delivery! For pediatricians, with my DS we didn't really do a lot of searching or interviewing peds, etc. We had friends that used the peds group more »

    I forget exactly how old DS was when he started doing this. I think he was closer to 6  or 7 months old. He would do it consistently 45min after going to sleep, almost every night. The first time it h more »

    Thanks Kiwi on the hope for #2! I think that part of my problem was not liking the LC that was in the hospital. She was a little bit too judgemental for me. Like she was appalled that the night nurses more »

    MM2 - counseling couples facing these testing options and decisions is what I do for work :-) The only thing that I would make sure that you know, is that the MaterniT21 test is still considered to be more »

    Kar - thanks! I did have a little Mommy-guilt over not being able to just bf him in the first place, especially since he was my first. I did not want to feel like a "quitter". But in all reality, it w more »

    Arcain - my DS was super gassy and would get fussy because he was so uncomfortable. I pumped exclusively for the first 5 months - it was hell. DS didn't latch on well and would get himself too hungry more »

    When the sidewalks were that bad, we didn't do much walking outdoors. I live next to an elementary school, so when the weather was nice and the sidewalks/roads were decent, we could go and stroll the more »

    My DS is now 1 year old and he will try to shove as much food as possible into his mouth at one time! I used to watch him like a hawk to make sure he wasn't choking and could actually chew things once more »

    My son was born just after Thanksgiving so we were home on mat leave for all of last Winter. I agree with what other people have said about the snowsuit vs. just the Bundle me. A snowsuit at this poin more »

    The daycare center that DS used to be in also had a "3-dose" rule for anything requiring antibiotics (pink-eye/strep throat/ear infection/etc.) They wanted to the child to have had at least three dose more »

    Hello! So DS is now 10 1/2 months old and I never joined a "mommy and me" type play group or anything when he was born. It was the middle of winter and was hard to get out of the house. Also, almost a more »

    Fram - your post made me laugh b/c my DH also thinks I'm the devil if I try to let DS cry it out. DH gets SO distressed at the baby crying - it is cute that he cares about DS, but also makes me crazy. more »

    My 2 cents...I would just ditto about making sure that you and your Pedi are on the same page and that you feel totally comfortable with the conversations that you have. I very much regret not doing m more »
