Re: 3rd baby but never had a shower....okay to have one now?

Absolutely o.k. to have one for baby #3, especially since there is a big gap in age, and because you don't have any gear. Go for it, and enjoy it! Best wishes!

Re: pain meds

You can refuse meds. I did with my first, because I wanted to know if the pain was manageable, and it was for me. You can always ask for them when you feel you need them. With my second, I had a...
