How did I not notice you were active in this ddc before this? I can't wait to meet Isaac and read your full birth story.
Thrush. I feel like an expert at this point, although I am not having a lot of success in getting rid of mine. Gentian Violet is NOT a natural treatment. It is petroleum based, and is actually pretty nasty stuff. That said, it has at least reduced the pain for me, although the thrush is still there after a week of gentian violet (which is all you're supposed to do). It would not be my first choice.

Our new arrival is here, and we are now officially a boy family! Camden was born at home in the water on 10-10-10. 7 lbs, 8 oz, 19.5 inches. This is an exceptionally special birthday for us, as it was my deceased youngest brother's birthday. The birth went very well by all accounts, except mine. No, really, it was a good birth. I have just been spoiled by my other births being really quick. This was just as intense, but lasted much longer... a whopping 6 hours of...
Another one here! And two of us live in the same town.
