Re: Let's talk baby carrier

I used a k'tan when DD was tiny, but like the others said, it loses support when they get heavier (and DD has always been big). After that, I switched to an Ergo. The Ergo was fine, and plenty...

Found out we are having a healthy ... baby ...

GIRL! My DD is so excited that she's getting a baby sister. I have an older sister myself, so I'm pretty excited that my 2 girls will have that relationship. It's starting to feel real. Now to figure...

Re: Midwife VS OB

I see an OB. She's very into research based medicine, and she's affiliated with a baby friendly hospital, and those both work well for me. She saw me through a tricky induction with my very...

Re: Nursery!

Thanks! Positive stories are so welcome. I enjoyed sharing a room with my sister when I was little, so I know it can be great. But DD was an awful sleeper and it makes me so nervous. Knowing that...

Re: Nursery!

I wish. But baby will be sharing a room with big sis once he/she leaves our room. Other than thinking of how to fit another crib in there, there's no planning involved - just me stressing that they...

Re: Morning Sickness

I'm sorry, that's awful. My only advice is to keep an eye out for anything that actually smells good to you, and try to replicate that. Last time, I noticed around 11 weeks that fresh lemon juice...

Re: Baby carriers!!

Thanks! I'd been thinking a ring sling might be the way to go. In the ktan, I felt like baby was all contorted to nurse. And DD has always been really tall, so in the ergo I felt like I had to drop...

Re: Baby carriers!!

I loved the k'tan when DD was tiny, and she loved it as well. When she got bigger, I used an ergo. I found it comfy and sturdy - and DD is a big kid.

I'd be interested in hearing suggestions on...

Re: GTKY: Mommy preferences

This just rang so true to me. We ended up sleep training DD, but it was a hard decision and it was based on her very particular situation. Weight gain was never an issue for her, haha! She was born...

Re: Help me with a name please!!

Daria, Delilah, Dahlia? It's kind of nice to already have a letter to narrow it down by. Picking names is overwhelming!

Re: NT scan today!

Yay! I hope you get some good pics. I had mine yesterday, and kiddo put on a little dance performance. It was really fun to watch. I didn't ask the tech to guess I gender because I'm getting that...

Re: Joining from Sept...

Congrats and welcome! I'm due around the same time. There's definitely been days when I've wished I could fast forward the first trimester - what a surprise that must have been!

Re: baby stuff

Nothing here, and I probably won't get anything until the third tri. We really don't have much to get. I have a hand me down rotation going with my SIL. If we are having another girl, we'll get the...

Re: Finally saw the midwife and baby!

Yay, congrats! There are a few levels of testing that a genetic counselor can walk you through. There's the triple screen that is really common for women of all ages. Then there are cell free DNA...

Re: Allergy meds

Oh yes, I know that well. I got nosebleeds with it too. Hopefully yours will improve as spring arrives. But you might try using a humidifier when you sleep. That should help. Good luck!

Re: Junior

I'm personally not really into the junior thing, and DH isn't either, so it's not really something we're considering. We have DD a middle name in honor of my great aunt. I'd like a similar...

Re: GTKY: Mommy preferences

Breast feeding or formula feeding? I breastfed DD for a little over a year, and plan to do the same with this baby. Since I sent back to work after 12 weeks, that meant 9 months of pumping. I'm not...

The universe of foods I can eat is slowly expanding. I was able to revive taco Tuesdays, so apparently ground turkey meet is back on the menu. And I hadn't been able to have raw veggies in a long...

Re: Let's Talk Breast Pumps!

I used a hygeia Q because that's what my insurance covered. So, no experience with your options. But if deciding between two options, one factor to consider is the availability of pump parts and...
