Re: What prenatal do you take?

Rainbow Light prenatals. They're all plant based. Love them. =) I also take their complete iron alongside it because I usually get low iron, fish oils and some D3.

Re: Anyone ever had a CT scan during pregnancy?

Re: Braxton Hicks already??

YES!! I just had my first today! I'm 14.3 weeks and all I was doing was bending over kissing my kid for bedtime! It took my breath away from being so tight. Wasn't painful, just really super tight.

Re: Water birth

I've never used the la bassine, I honestly can't afford to get it. I was quite comfortable in the fishie pool. It had the inflatable sides to lean against which is what i really wanted.
