Still (dry) nursing my 25 month old DD- we co sleep and have the crib side carred. I am sometimes worried about what's going to happen at night since she still nurses throughout the night some nights- sometimes she STTN. I don't really want to night wean. I have had the most luck with parenting in general when I "save tomorrow's problems for another day". Every baby is different, I've never had 2 before, and we seem to roll with things pretty well anyway! I may kick...
DD2 is due April 20 (ish) DD1 is now 25 months . I can't figure out how to post a response from the mobile version, so I've been mostly lurking
I am vaccinating, but spreading them out and waiting on some. I have been going to a ped in my town, (glen cove) and they have been supportive of me doing things the way I want to. I have had no confrontation, but I also haven't asked them their opinion on certain subjects. They give their professional opinion on some things (schedules and diet) and prescribed me infant vitamins, but I don't feel like my 100% breastfed 5 month old needs them so I didn't fill the script....
I just read your amazing story!  I had a home birth too, and my story is up here as well... Since Hailey's birth I kinda have been feeling a little down about my birth... I felt like because I had to have an episiotomy, and have my midwife pull her out, that somehow I was weak or less of a birthing warrior or whatever...  Maybe I could have tried harder, or done better.  I only remember the totally empowering stories,  mine seemed flawed.  After reading your story, I...

I'm in Nassau County on Long Island.   I am not positive how much they pay her.  It didn't say on the approval paper.  If I find out I will let you know!
Hailey Lauren arrived on Sunday 1/15/12 at 1:10 PM.   6lbs 4oz 19 inches.    I was in labor since Friday morning.  Period-cramps all day.  But regularly 10 minutes apart.  at around 7 PM I had my sister get on a plane from Portland OR to NY!     Overnight I slept, woken by the rushes ever 10-15 minutes, I stopped checking my clock because I figured it was more important to get sleep!   In the morning, I had to get out of bed around 5:30 - they were...
YAY She is here - well she got here on Sunday, I've not been on my computer since then!  I will post a new thread!!!!  
HI everyone, it's 6:30 and I can't stay in bed any longer.   I woke up yesterday with cramps, they were on and off until about 4, then they were regular but short and easy.  at around 6 they increased in intensity,  By 9:30 i was in bed hoping for some sleep. they got to be stronger and about a minute long, but still 10 -15 minutes apart.  I slept on and off until 5:30 waking up with the contractions. (and a million trips to the bathroom)    They are just too strong...
I just got my approval letter today from my health insurance company for my midwife who was out of network for my "home/medical care"  - Description = "Routine Obstetric Care Including Antepartum Care, Vaginal Delivery (With our without Episiotomy and/or forceps) and postpartum care"     My midwife's office made this happen.  I have to pay her a $750 home birth fee which covers her assistant, and some medical equipment such as oxygen and a few other things that she...
