Re: Another busy week!!!

I really do think it's impressive that you are in school during all this. My head is way too foggy to be doing anything that requires actual smarts at the moment. I'm sure your sister will understand...

Re: Labor Coach

Re: Moving over to FB

The board is so dead lately. Most of you must have moved over to facebook. I guess I'll be a follower. How do I gain access?

Re: How much time with your DH/SO take off work after the baby is born?

Did you hear about the pilot program they are starting in August? Your husband would only get 50% of his normal income but he can make up to 40% more without having them reduce his EI. So he could...

Re: How much time with your DH/SO take off work after the baby is born?

My SO will take about 3 weeks off. He is working extra hours at the moment (2 jobs, almost 50 hours a week) to save up the hours to take the time off. He goes back to school full time about a month...

Re: Measuring 3 weeks ahead!!

My kids were about a pound and a half apart (6lb13oz & 8lbs6oz). I don't think the pain was anymore with the bigger one than it was with the little one. I'm expecting an 8-9 pounder this time. I...

How is sleep going for everyone? Not great. I tend to slip flop all night, although I'm trying to sleep mostly on my left side (midwife's advice regarding my varicose vein). Even with my snoogle it...

Re: post-birth freezer meals

I find that veggies don't freeze very well unless they are going in soups or stews. Potatoes especially. They go mushy. Maybe a veggie lasagna though. Some yummy sauce recipes (curry, tomato, pestos,...

Re: Older Sibling Gifts.....
