Re: Mommy role & mothering success

I always feel a bit more of a success if I try to coach my kids instead of dictate. We work best as a team, but they do not thrive well under dictatorship. Although my husband rules with an iron...

Re: Would you consider this a compliment....

People say this to me a lot. Most people assume I'm in my mid-early 20's. When they hear I have 4 kids, they say, "Oh wow! You look so young! You look great to have 4 kids!" I always just say, "They...

Judgement

I love this article. This is very true. No matter what choices you make, you will be judged by others. And it starts before you even have your baby. But really, who cares what others think if you are...

Re: Natural Birth, painless?

I just don't know if pain is the word I would use in regard to birth. It's intense and insane and different from anything else in life.

The laboraid thing really bothers me. If you ever read Ina...

Re: Did you Birth Plan?

I filled out an online birth plan with my first. That was a joke. I must confess that I didn't really make birth plans with my others- but I had learned a few lessons and knew what I needed to know...

Re: En Caul

My water breaks during pushing too. I've seen several caul births and caught one baby in the caul (born face first!). It's neat to see!

Re: How did you cope?

I wish I could help more. I honestly don't have a lot of pain in labor. The last bit, the pushing contractions, are insane and I don't love them. Pushing a baby out hurts kinda. But labor pains don't...

How to spend your time in early labor?

For some early labor can last for days. For others it's only a few hours. What did you do to pass the time in early labor?

Re: Self cervical check? Dilation! *I think*

I personally wouldn't check or mess with a cervix before 37 weeks. It's true that you can dilate early, but cervical exams stir up oxytocin which can bring on premature labor. I do think it is a good...

Re: girl pH?

I think you are supposed to be acidic (when hydrated). I think 4 is pretty strong, and sounds like a good sway. I've actually been doing a project predicting baby genders based on mother's pH levels...

Re: Henry's Birth story **WARNING: insanely long** x posted
