Re: very scary article about the cost of pregnancy care in the United States

If I had to pay out of pocket, I would 100% without question have a home birth. I actually just made the decision to go with a hospital birth with CNMs because it's completely covered by our...

Re: Birthing Classes

I hope you get a good class! I haven't heard of many hospital birth classes being very helpful. If nothing else, the tour and pre-registration are good things :)

Re: Placenta

I want to encapsulate, but now that I'm switching to a hospital over home I'll have to see how difficult it will be to smuggle that thing out with me. I'm not so committed that I'm willing to put up...

Re: BTDT baby wearing

I loved my Sleepy Wrap when Nova was really little. She practically lived in it for the first 3 months of her life. I got an Ergo when she was around 6 months and I didn't like it as much as I...

Re: What's getting more difficult....

Picking up my daughter. She wants to be held all the time! Usually I can just hold her hand and we'll walk together to wherever she wants to go, or I'll just sit down and hug her, but when she's...

Re: Newborn vs 0-3 months clothes

0-3. We'll have some newborn stuff just because we get hand me downs from my sisters, but I wouldn't bother to buy NB. Our sleep sacks are 0-6, and for anything other than sleeping I don't see why...

Re: Any of you have pets?

She sounds like one of my cats! His name is Nibbler and it is very fitting! He's super sweet though, a giant purrball, so it wasn't too hard forgive him for eating my plants and countless cords...

Re: Future Friday

Probably a little chaotic :) I imagine the wee one will be crawling or at least attempting it, and Nova will be almost 3 and probably driving me crazy :P And I so so hope that these things will be...

Re: Friday four

With one set, yes. All holidays were at their house, and they always had a ton of toys and things for us to do. The other set of...

Re: labor day pampering

No? I don't know when I'll go into labor, so I'm not sure how I'd figure out when to do all of those things to prepare for it.

Re: Any of you have pets?

We have two cats and a dog. They all drive me crazy. I've instated a house rule that all subsequent pets must be caged only, no more of this animals having the run of the house for me. It's just too...

Re: Cloth diapering mamas

I got most of my pockets on Ebay. They're so cheap they don't even have a brand :P But they've held up for 2 years now and will be used for this baby too, so I'd say they were worth the $4 each!...

Re: Carpet or Hardwood in the Nursery

I'd just get a rug. Much easier, easier to clean, easier to change someday if you/kid wants. And if you ever sell your house, people go crazy for hardwood floors.

Re: What the best advice

Don't listen to any advice, just do what works for you and your baby/family. Also, if doing something feels wrong to you, it is wrong for you. Parent with your instincts, not against them.

Re: sleep position

All over the place. Sometimes I fall asleep on my side (either one), sometimes my back, a few nights ago I could not get comfortable unless I was on my stomach. My daughter usually gets in bed with...

I have a Medela Pump in Style, but I don't anticipate using it very much.

Re: Article about not washing baby after birth-- what do you think?

Nova was toweled off while I held her as soon as she came out, but didn't get a bath. My in-laws were staying with us that week and my MIL really really wanted to give her a bath so I let her wipe...

Re: Rings

Mine isn't tight, but it's really irritating my skin for some reason. Usually when I'm home it's off now because it just bugs me. It never got tight with my first either.

Breastfeeding, no set time frame. I'm still nursing my almost 2 year old, although she's down to just before bed and usually once during the night. Exclusively breastfeeding until at least 6 months...

Re: Family opinion on gender?

Re: Questions From January 2014 - BTDT

I definitely wouldn't worry about it this early. Your uterus will grow and the placenta will most likely move along with it. It's pretty rare for it to not move even when it's not discovered until...
