Re: BTDT MOMS: Hand foot and mouth disease

The problem with so many of these illnesses is that kids are often contagious before they show symptoms. When my daughter had it, she had a fever one day and was completely fine until day 4 when she...

Re: HELP! Natural headache remedies?

Ice packs or hot packs on your head/neck, peppermint essential oil, water, laying in a dark/quiet room, caffeine, eating something if you haven't had enough to eat today.

Re: hypnobabies!-hopefully it's not "all hype" hahah..ha..

I tried to get into it and it just wasn't me. I ended up watching Business of Being Born and reading the Bradley Book, as well as a few other random books and watching about 38582549 YouTube videos...

Re: Birth Photography

I had a photographer last time and the photos came out amazing! I got graphic ones for my own personal reference but she put together an amazing slideshow. I'll post a link later from my iPad. I'm...

Re: Who else is planning a home birth?

We are having another home birth! People know better than to question me. I will give it right back to them. I usually spout off a bunch of facts, and tell them how wonderful my midwife is. But...

Re: Took a soccer ball to the side today :/

I thought of you this morning when my 29 pound 3 year old dove directly onto my lower belly in an attempt to wake her little brother who was next to me.

Re: Took a soccer ball to the side today :/

I wouldn't worry. I honestly get kicked, climbed on, kneed and hit in the belly more tikes than I can count. My toddlers are unintentionally rough! It sometimes causes a few contractions but always...

Re: maternal fetal specialist

Good luck! They will likely offer amnio or one of the less invasive blood tests like the MaterniT21 or Verifi.

Re: Prenatal massage!

A good massage therapist certified in prenatal massage should know what pressure points to avoid in order to not stimulate contractions. Make sure you drink lots of water after. Enjoy! They are...

Re: How soon did you get your period after birth if breastfeeding?

5 weeks with my daughter, I was breastfeeding and pumping. 14 months with my son, I was EBFing until he started to show interest in solids at about a year.

Re: How much...

I've gained 3. With DD I lost 15 and ended up only gaining 10. With DS I gained about 18. I'm hoping to keep it under 25. I'm on the very low side of normal for my weight anyway.

Contractions

I've been having a lot of Braxton hicks for about 2 weeks but this morning they started around 2am when I was obviously not active at all. I've had a ton and some of them are starting to feel...

You look great! I'm much bigger this time too. You definitely show more sooner after you've had one.

Re: Anyone here ever have a water birth?

First, there are many confident and experienced midwives, and I would say your experience is not the norm with midwives. I've had a few very wonderful ones, and I think that my current midwife...

Re: Libido check-in!

Mine is through the roof. Unfortunately I get awful contractions for a few hours after so I can't do it as much as I would like. Plus I have a toddler that sucks at sleeping.

Re: BTDT mamas...

I've had tons of pressure too. My midwife said you can also get varicose veins down there which can cause a similar feeling but she said that wasn't the case when I had to be checked 2 weeks ago. So...

I think it's inevitable. I do post on FB much more than JM. The mobile format here is just hard to use.

Okay, definitely going to try to take it easy more. I was on my feet a lot this week and I'm definitely paying the price now.

Holy pelvic pressure!

I'm almost 16 weeks and I do NOT remember it being so bad this early on. I'm hoping its short lived and eases up some but I'm not counting on it. Third pregnancies are definitely no joke!!! The idea...

Re: Anyone have NT Scan and Maternit21 results

I would think its unlikely that they would both be negative if the baby did in fact have a chromosomal condition.

Re: I am HUGE!

People keep asking me when the big day is! Or if its multiples...not even twins. They probably think I'm the next octomom or something.
