I agree with sports. I also got my daughter started on riding lessons (which she sort of gave up, but she is still young and I dont want to push), and now she has a bicycle. I also try not to make food an issue, and I pretty much give her free rein in what she wants to wear. I think this helps because she learns to make decisions about her body and how it looks. I also make sure I compliment her brains as well as how good she looks or something like that. . .make...
I would never put earrings on a child too young to speak up about it AND understand the pain. I think it is cruel, and unnecessary. Stick a bow on your kid's head if you are worried about gender mix-ups. I waited until my daughter was old enough to ask, I explained that it was like sticking a needle in your ear and leaving it in there, that it hurts for a while (I had mine done at 6, I remember), but if she wanted to, I would take her. She decided against it. If...
DH is the adult -- he shouldn't be concerned about this. It *is* a stage. In fact, now my son (2) is my shadow, and my daughter is 'daddy's little girl' through and through, she's out and out SAID he was her favorite! But since I am an adult, I don't take it personally. She loves me too, and tells me and shows me. Just like my son loves him, even if he screams and wails when I go to the supermarket and he stays home with dad! Sure, sometimes my children (at least...
I cant say that this is the reason why, but the playing music reminded me of something: With my son, my daughter was always talking to my bellybutton. When I was told he was breech, I told her to talk lower down, and she did. He turned on his own. Maybe it wasnt just talk, and it really DID work!
My son spun round and round and round all the time. He was breech at week 34, by week 35 or 6 he was fine. What everyone else said is true. I wouldn't worry.
I had to have both glucose tests this pregnancy. The first pregnancy I had diabetes. The second one the midwife TOLD me I had it, but I never actually had the test. I puked and they assumed (and lated induced). This time, I do not have it. My midwife did suggest, however, that for 3 days prior, to not overdo it with the carbs. The first test I passed with flying colors. I got to eat normally, and not fast. The second test was the 3 hour (?) fasting one. I...
This will be my first unmedicated birth. I am having this one at a birthing center. . .no choice but to go without meds. I also had a nasty fall off a horse, and with the back injuries an epidural would probably NOT be in my best interests, and might not even be given (thats what I keep TELLING myself so I dont chicken out). I am just going to try to be brave, remembering that the other births I survived the times without meds, it was just the induction that HURT...
My midwife does not do them routinely, but I have had two this pregnancy. One before I picked her, but I was having pains that suggested etopic pregnancy, and the second because I was measuring WAY too big for date (as in 8 weeks too big!) and did NOT have diabetes! Had I not measured too large, she would not have done the u/s, although I will admit there is a certain reassurance in getting them. You know, see a head, 2 legs, 2 arms, etc. . .
