I think my whole body is starting to fee disjointed somehow. The last few nights I've been even more restless than normal when trying to sleep. Whole body aches. Legs ache. EVERYTHING. But I have perfect BP lol. (Trying to look at the bright side.)   Midwife thinks I might go early (that might explain the increase of pain? Or I've been over-doing it in the garden the past few days.    
  A few years ago, a colonic care specialist  (and friend) recommended LBS II (Natures Sunshine brand) to me for after a laparotomy-type surgery where they messed around with my bowel as well as female reproductive organs. I didn't have stitches down there (I had those in my abdomen), but I did have trouble with the bowel working after interference and I found the LBS II really helpful in keeping my stool soft, as trying to use stomach muscles to push when they've got...
I'm burying mine on my parent's property. We rent, so it's really impractical and wasteful to bury it on the rental property. I envision us keeping this property in the family when our parents expire, so I'm looking forward to seeing how tall this palm tree grows in conjunction with how our daughter grows. I like the idea of planting it in a pot, but for me, I'm not in the same country as hubby right now. I don't think I could take my 'biohazard' on a plane across...
Thanks for the advice. Biohazard? I guess it's human waste, so makes perfect sense. I will check with the midwife next week.
I've had sore hips on and off since about week 25. But, it's been worse lately. And yup, definitely starting to get the waddle. I'm not walking as 'easily' as I used to. Baby, wait two more weeks and then feel free to find your own way out! There should be a light at the end of the tunnel to guide you!
I'm permitting my daughter to get Vitamin K, but in oral form and not injection. My request worked out perfectly as the hospital are aware of the documentation surrounding injections and they only offer VitK in oral form. If I do not choose to administer it to my baby, I just have to sign a waiver.   I like my hospital (it's not all clinical etc like I would have expected).
I wish to use mine as feed for a new baby Nikau Palm tree that will be planted when my baby is born.   The only thing I have to wonder is something quite practical: How do I transport the placenta home? How big is this sucker going to be?
My former pre-natal carer had some good thoughts on this issue when I said i didn't think I liked the idea of episiotomy. Her words have fortified my stance against having it done.   If you tear naturally, the tissue down there will most likely find the path of least resistance and tear in between muscle fibers.   If you get cut down there, they cut through everything (including the muscle).   Now, I'm sure muscle tissue can be affected, but I do agree with...

I didn't know that about Cloth Diapers and I will be CDing when baby comes along. I have 19 OSFA pre-folds ready to go. I went and got some of the same diaper rash cream that was used on me as a baby, just in case my little one had it. I'd actually heard that disposables caused less rashes than cloth (but they're obviously trying to sell you more!).
