That is amazing!! I love this story - shows the powerful connection of our mind, body, and baby's will!
I have searched for the group and can't find it! Will someone send me an invite? I am lis mccachren. I've been more active in March ddc, but ummm, now it's April & I'm not in labor yet!
my best friend tested positive and declined antibiotics during labor or for baby ... the compromise or decision reached with her hospital midwife was to stay in the hospital for 3-4 days for monitoring.  they did this, and all was totally fine with their baby of course.  it may be an option to discuss with your care provider if you really don't want antibiotics and also end up needing to stay in hospital for AMA reasons.
beautiful bellies!!! i love the comment someone made about "bloated bumpin'" - that is totally how i feel!!! ill post a pic later on this weekend when my man is around to help me snag a good one!

ill post a pic later on.  i am definetly showing at 14 weeks and have been since 10 weeks, though i felt huge from bloating since about 7 days after conception!
I am 12 weeks now and SO grateful that the all day nausea has subsided. It's been replaced by allergies & sinus pressure, but ill take that! I can finally eat and even have cooked 2 meals which has seemed impossible til a few days ago. I think each day will be better. As to telling people, I told almost right away with both pregnancies. I am not good at keeping my own secrets, plus with feeling so bad I felt I had to tell as my excuse. I've met with my midwives already a...
