My unplanned unassisted birth in the hospital parking lot.

I had posted in this group before my son was born inquiring about a home birth. I could not find a midwife that would see me at 37 weeks so I decided that I would have to endure another hospital...

Re: Pacifiers and Breastfeeding

Ds1 would not take one. Ever. He refused bottles as well. It took me a long time to get him to use a sippy even. I introduced a pacifier within the first week to baby E. He wanted to comfort...

Re: When your baby isn't eating or sleeping....

Observing usually. Or bossing me with how he wants to be held. Or not held. He is a pretty opinionated little man. Lol. I hold him a lot though- even when I don't need too. He is likely my last and...

Re: Unplanned, unassisted birth of Exton in the parking lot.

Thanks ladies. It was pretty amazing and intense. I had done a ton of research on natural childbirth before so I knew exactly what was going on and it helped me to understand and not be afraid. After...

Re: Bouncing back..

I feel like I look pretty good for having two kids and being 10 days post partum. :) I seem to bounce back pretty well from pregnancy though. My hips will never be the same and my skin is stretched...

Re: Scrawny baby..

He is pretty much in 0-3 month clothes. Some larger newborn things. But he was born huge and he is growing like a weed. Born at 9lbs 5oz, we were discharged at 9lbs 1 oz, and by his 5 day checkup he...

Re: Why this baby is late?? :(

All women gestate differently. The 40 week time table is aactually pretty inaccurate. I think something like over 50% of women gestate past 40 weeks. If you had longer menstrual cycles it is likely...

Re: siblings with baby

Ds1 is doing great! It's so cute. He watches me change E's diaper and when he cries Ds1 pets his head and says "you're find baby, you're fine." He gives him kisses all the time. Loves to hold E. Just...

Re: Tomorrow is my due date...

You're so close!! Try nipple stimulation. I think that's what may have worked for me. If you have a breast pump- pump for 5-10 minutes then rest for 5 minutes until contractions start. It makes for...

Angry angry.

My dr is insisting that I be induced by 41 weeks for no reason other than it's 'not recommended' to go past 41 weeks. There is nothing wrong with me or my baby and I have no risk factors. I'm...

Re: Eye Ointment?

I'm planning on refusing it, or at least delaying it for 2 hours. Hopefully refusing it but I can't find any information if it's required by law here or not.

Re: Let's see some action!

I'm in the middle of 'impatiently waiting' and 'patiently waiting' depends on the day, how I feel, what's on my mind, if my 2 year old is being extra sassy etc. lol

Re: S/O - post partum

My dr encouraged me to take baths right away. I'd probably wait the 6 weeks before pools and hot tubs though.

Re: I can't remember why...

I'm glad it's working out well for you. I too have trouble bonding to babies in utero. I care for them deeply but the bond isn't established until birth. I knew you'd get there! Congrats!
