Re: Introducing ...

Congratulations! You and your baby girl look like you're doing fabulously. They're often pretty sleepy the first day after their initial awake period... all normal and expected. Woohoo for you!

Re: *less than 2 weeks to go... everyone else?*

Good luck! I have 9 days until my due date. The doc offered to induce me any time after 39 weeks (Saturday), but I said I wanted to hold off on a hospital induction unless she saw any reason to be...

Re: Helloooo? Anybody still here?

Wow, you're really close. Good luck!

When I went to the doc yesterday I had dilated to a 2 (from 1 the week before) and baby's head was engaged, so she swept my membranes. I walked a whole lot...

Re: Helloooo? Anybody still here?

Wow! Good luck on having your kiddo tonight... I wish you a speedy, successful, and relatively painless induction. I hope the decels won't be a problem, but it definitely sounds like it was time to...

Re: Helloooo? Anybody still here?

C'mon Sprog! You can come out now :-). I puked through both of my labors (with no morning sickness otherwise), so maybe that's a good sign that little bit is on the way.

Re: Did you know when it was *time* to go to the hospital???

Sounds like you may be in pre-labor to me, which could last hours, days, or weeks :-(. Get a contraction timer app and see if your pain is timeable or not... that's probably the real test as far as...

Re: Meeting Supply and Demand

If it takes a few minutes to get letdown, maybe try either pumping a little or doing manual expression before you try to latch her. That way she still gets her instant gratification from the breast...

Re: Meeting Supply and Demand

In our NICU we tell moms to pump 20 minutes both sides every three hours to keep up your supply. Sometimes, moms have better luck increasing supply with 15 minutes, wait 5, then an additional 5...

Re: Breast Pumping

I haven't personally pumped before, but I'm a NICU nurse, so I deal with other people's breastmilk all day :-P. The bags are great because you can freeze them flat and not take up so much space in...

Re: How much longr do you have till you DD?

I wouldn't imagine they'd check dilation if you're a c-section, but I didn't get checked either at my 36-week appointment and I'll probably be a vaginal delivery (although she did swab for group B...
