I'm still working on my birth story, but John was born at 2:28 am, Thursday, November 20, via c-section after almost exactly 72 hours of labor.

Re: Positive group B strep and big baby.... what would you do?

Re: 38 week appointment & Induction date set

Re: 38 week appointment & Induction date set

Re: Changing the game up at 37w3d!!!

CONGRATS!!!!! That's fantastic!

There are no water births at all at the place I'm giving birth. You can labor in their "jacuzzi tubs" which are just regular bathtubs, but that's it. However I've...

It's not really a script or step by step plan, more like an outline of what you do an don't want barring a medical emergency.

Re: prenatal classes

We had ours last week. She came out to our house for four hours. It ended up being the same price as an eight week class, and we got a TON out of it.
