Re: Hospital bill

Medical bills are such bogus!!

I don't have maternity coverage, so I opted to self pay at the hospital I was delivering at. I prepaid $3500 for a vaginal delivery - it was their OB package and...

Similac coupons

Does anyone use Similac and need coupons? If so, I have four (4) coupons from the weekend paper you can have. I was going to throw them away, but thought someone on here could use them.

I have two...

Re: Ergo Carrier? Opinions wanted!

I love my ergo, and I paid about $120 for it locally for the soft, organic cotton one. So, yes, this is a great price! We got a lot of use out of it with DS, and I can't wait to use it with DD. I'm...

Re: Vitamin D drops

My pedi recommended the drops but also said that she was comfortable with me taking extra vit D myself instead. I take 5000 i.u./day, and I read that if mommy takes vit D supplements, it will pass...

Re: Showering

Back when DS started walking, I switched my showers to nighttime instead of mornings. This ensured that I actually got one every day. I'm still on that schedule now...I just wait until DS is in bed...

Re: This doesn't sound right...

That doesn't really sound right to me. A GD diet doesn't have to be low in calories, just low in carbs. I was probably getting between 1800-2000 calories per day, but I had to add in high calorie...

Re: Cry it out method-will you do it?

I won't do CIO. I didn't do it with DS, and he was a terrible sleeper. It just seems too unnatural for me, and I've always parented with my instincts. DD is a much better sleeper so far than DS ever...

Re: Thankful Thread

I am super thankful for my mother for coming to stay with me for 2 weeks and for promising to come back every month this summer to stay for a week or so at a time.

I'm thankful for DH for working...

Re: Can we talk stitches?

I had 1 first degree tear also (one week ago today), and mine have already started to fall out/dissolve. I haven't looked down there, but when I patted myself dry yesterday, I noticed a few short...

Re: BFing mamas

I had a major oversupply with DS, and it's even more so this time. I block feed - only switching breasts every 2nd feeding. That way I know that baby is getting the hind milk that she needs. I'm...

Thanks ladies! I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.



I actually think it was the combination of acupuncture and the membrane sweep that did the trick. I could tell the...

I got my VBAC!! Baby is here! :)

Just a quick post to say that after my "natural labor induction week" last week, including acupressure/massage, acupuncture, and a membrane sweep, I went into labor on Thursday night.

Re: Membrane Sweep

Just had my sweep today. I am 3 cm, 80% effaced. It was uncomfortable, but I was actually anticipating for it to hurt more. I haven't had any bleeding, but lots and lots of pressure, and for the last...

Re: Who is still waiting?

I am too - 6 days from my due date, and one week from an impending c-section. Really hoping I go into labor by this weekend!

Re: TMI warning--postpartum BM

I took colace after I had DS, but I was actually still very constipated. I had to resort to Milk of Magnesia on about day 5 (called my doc, and this is what she suggested). It was brutal. I really...

I totally agree - it IS a weird time. I've had so many emotions lately, and it can be frustrating not knowing when or if I will go into labor. I wish I wasn't so obsessed with trying to interpret...
