I'm with Dawn. We are having Linda at Mothers Own for our first homebirth. : I have known her for probably 16 years. She has all the medical knowledge as well as all of the midwife's mentality. And our insurance will cover it! I had the CNMs at U of M for 4 of my 6 births. A lot of them have moved around or left and new ones have come since I started seeing them, but I think they are great! Unfortunately, they do work within the confines of the rules of UofM (eye...

Can you tell me more about how you play the chore game? Thanks!
Not only no, but oh, h#ll no! They may say it is their policy , blah, blah, blah.. But tell them it is your policy not to have unneccesary procedures.

I went from D to G. Totally normal. They will probably go larger when your milk comes in and then go back down to end of pregnancy size or slightly smaller. You really need a larger bra and shirt. You will be much more comfortable. I'm sure your hubby is thrilled.
Wow! This is uch a great thread! I actually have a dehydrator, I need to dig it out and learn to use it. I also water bath can and just got 2 pressure canners. 1 needs a new gasket. (I'll probably replace the other while I'm at it) and they need their gauges tested, but our extension lost their testing equipment, so I need to go over to next county over to get it tested.

Perhaps its the acne mixed in with my wrinkles that makes you think that. Or it could be a big thank you to Miss Clairol.
