Re: It Takes a Village

I haven't a clue beyond one nurse and the OB (and my husband). The room was packed, though. I remember lots of voices yelling and that's about it. But yes, I can agree that it's sad!

Re: Labor Sprint

Woke up with semi-regular contractions at 5:00 am, got to the hospital at 10:00 am, had her at 10:30 am.

5 1/2 hours total (and as a first-time mom--you can bet the L&D nurses were pretty...

Heart Fiona is here :)

I'm five days late in posting, but my baby surprised us by coming a couple of weeks early on Wednesday. It was a very fast, hectic labor and delivery (at the hospital for all of 30 minutes before she...

Re: Sleep!

Sleep is not going so well. Same things as everyone else--waking up too often to pee then not able to fall back asleep, getting kicked from within makes it hard to settle, stuffy nose, sore and...

Re: Anyone co sleeping?!

We'll have to see. At first, I'm planning to have the pack n play with bassinet right next to my side of the bed. Who knows what will happen in the middle of the night after breastfeeding. But our...

Re: End of Pregnancy Annoyances

I think you've all got it covered! So much to do but a lack of energy, compounded by not being able to get a decent night's sleep. The annoying mixture of rotating hunger, nausea, and heartburn. Just...

Re: Is your hospital bag packed?

Haven't even thought about it yet. I guess it hasn't really hit me that I'm almost full term. Still not expecting her for a bit but I should probably get ready soon just in case!

Re: Am I the only one that wants to reach my due date?

I'd like to. This is my first, and while I am tired of certain aspects of being pregnant and am so excited to meet my little girl, I also feel like I need the next few weeks to get ready! I also want...

Re: Nursing in public?

I'm a FTM so I don't have experience with this. But someone once recommended a scarf. You can just drape it over the top next to baby's head to cover whatever part of the breast is exposed and that...

Re: Some unwelcome excitement

Thanks, everyone! After three more hours of monitoring this morning (because the lab was being really slow), things are great and the doctor isn't really worried now. Contractions slowed down, labs...

Re: Confession :( and need help

I'm not awake enough yet to have thoughts on specific nicknames, but I really think you have plenty of leeway. There are lots of common nicknames that aren't even that close to the real thing (ex:...

Some unwelcome excitement

Just got home from seven hours at the hospital after my almost-36-week appointment. Got chastised for not going in after falling yesterday (out of a bus, embarrassingly, but just landed on my hands...

Re: Is the middle the best place for a carseat? Where's yours installed?

We haven't installed ours yet since I'm not due for more than a month, but I'm guessing this is how it's going to be for us. We're going straight to a convertible and have a small car. Luckily I'm...

Re: carseat roulette

We currently have a tiny, old junker of a Korean car (it is not worth driving a nice car here, and little cars are much easier to get around and park in the city). You can sure bet there is no LATCH!...

Re: Mrskfet??

I had no idea one had actually been started too. And was wondering the same thing about mrskfet. Glad other people ask these things instead of just thinking and then forgetting them!

Re: For Boys

This! But then, I'm not very girly and prefer blues and greens, so that's just normal colors to me.

Lots of super cute things, lost. Good thing I don't have easy access to shopping and am usually...

Re: sleep

Oh yeah, there's no sleeping in because once the sunlight starts peeking in, my dog decides it's time to be awake. Even if he doesn't need to go out right away, he just starts moving around enough to...

Re: How long will you wait until you go to L&D?

This is my first, so it's hard to know the best time. But I'd like to wait as long as I feel comfortable waiting. I don't want any interventions unless necessary and I know the longer I'm in the...

Re: sleep

I can fall asleep easily. It's staying asleep that's the problem. I'm also waking up really sore, with my hip and shoulder hurting a lot. Then turn over and give the other side a chance to hurt too!...

Re: Who will you have at the hospital? (Or home if staying home)

There's no family aside from DH in this hemisphere, so we don't have to worry about that! I'd prefer not to even tell anyone when I'm in labor until after it's all over, but my friends here will know...
