Never. Ever. I wish we lived in a safer time, but we don't. I am certainly one of THOSE people who will call security on anyone leaving their kids in the car if I can't see an adult in the car (usually one is sleeping with the seat reclined-Ido that all the time if my daugher is sleeping). If you aren't going to take your kids in, why did you bring them? Don't mean to be callous but I have issues with such things. Plus I live in an increasingly criminal town. It's not...
My first pregnancy resulted in a vanishing twin. It was clear from the beginning (5weeks) that the second twin was not growing and the DR explained that it would probably be absorbed by my body, whch it was. I guess because it was so early in the pregnancy, it was not so traumatic for me, plus the Dr explained that it is actually more common than most people realize and it is one of the reasons your OB doesn't want to do an ultrasound too early as a vanishing twin may be...
My first time was very pleasant. My nurses were very helpful and checked on my right away when I needed anything. Luckily my OB came right as my daughter was coming out (she had a lot of emergency deliveries at the same hospital that night!). Because of concern for my daughter's health, there were A LOT of NICU people in the room when she was born (she was starting to use up her body fat!). But when she came out all pink and crying and peed all over the nurses they saw...
Ugh! I HATE them! I have had to do the second one TWICE! That would be the 4hour one after testing either positive or too-close on the first test ... After all that my seond test always comes out normal/negative. Go figure. Plus that GluCola takes so bad! Yucky.
Thanks for the ideas. I know our hospitals here tend to not offer anything when you are in labor. I was so hungry I got a bad migraine and they gave me 8$/ea tylenol (I shoulda just gotten them out of my purse!). After that my only choice was apple juice from their family fridge thing. I didn't get sick until I had to use oxygen and the smell of the brand-new vinyl nose-cover-thing made me sick! After that I felt great .. but hungry. I actually heard that eating...
I had the same situation. My first successful pregnancy I was on Metformin until I went to my OB and she said there was not enough information to substatiate safely keeping me on it. This pregnancy (different OB) told me I could stay on it, though I'm taking Glumetza, not Metformin. I have less nausea with the Glumetza, but they're still horsepills! I did a lot of research and in the 4 years since I was taking Metformin there has been more research done to help Drs...
I have taken Clomid all three times I went to my fertility specialist to get pregnant. I don't recall any of the typical side effects. However ... I must have been super hyped up by the Clomid because my first pregnancy resulted in a vanishing twin and a beautiful girl, the second only lasted about 3 weeks (so I don't know if it was twins), and my current (due in a week or so) has resulted in twins again! This time I got boy/girl twins. So, I guess it is true for some...
Here's another thing: what week did your Dr calculate your due date at? Mine was 40 weeks? Did anyone else get a sooner date because it was assumed you would not make it to 40 - 42 weeks?
I have co-slept with my daughter for 3.5yrs. She loves and and so do hubby and I. I know I sleep better knowing she's safe and asleep. She always slept inbetween us so I never fears she'd fall out of bed. We got her a little toddler memory foam pillow when she turned 3 (she never wanted to use a pillow before that).   She takes her naps in our bed or her toddler bed, her choice. My parents, who watch her while I'm at work and hubby's at school, often let her fall...
My daughter and I are too hot blooded to have skin-to-skin contact in bed any more. Short sleeve shirts work for us so we don't get sweaty and stick to each other! If it's cold, she'll wear long thin pants and long-sleeve thin top.
