Go the gym twice a week, eat healthier and lose 30 lbs by May Got ready to go for the first time this morning - discovered I no longer own a pair of tenny shoes - Birks would be kinda funny on the treadmill wouldn't they? looks like I get another Christmas present LOL Oh well - the gym will be open this weekend too...
One thing I wanted to point out - Many women think their supply is dwindling at a time when baby is going through a growth spurt AND the period of engorgement and fast/furious let down has relented - 6 to 12 weeks after birth for most. The supply is still good, but they dont feel the fullness and engorgement like they once did and so they think their supply is down. In addition, the tingly sensation of let down may go away too at about this time adding to fear that...
DONT buy a first years pump!!!!! AWFUL pumps. I swear most of the pump makers are in cahoots with either formula or bottle makers who would rather see breastfeeding fail. If I was going to have to pump on a regular baisis, I would buy nothing less than the pump in style or Ameda, if I was only pumping occasionally and a manual pump was fine, I would get the avent. I would buy the avent over any other brand (other than ameda or medela - and I would avoid the lower end...
Hon, you did what you felt you needed to do to protect yourself and your baby from interventions that were neither needed nor medically necessary. Since when is an 8 lb baby "TOO BIG"???? That is LUDICROUS!!!!!!!! Women deliver babies bigger than 8 lbs every day all over the world. I oughta know - mine were 8, 8.5, 8.3, 10.14 and 9.8 Call back up to the L&D unit and ask them what doc they would recommend in your situation and then call that doc and plead your case. They...

I am not much of a crafty type, but I would love to contribute some fabric for the backing or for others to make squares with, I could also swing a simple sqaure. If anyone needs fabric, pm me and I can send you some - I have a small stack of batik bright coloreds that I...

2 yr old DS goes to daycare a couple of days a week when I work. They sometimes have cereal for breakfast. .. then the other day I happen to be there at breakfast time - its FROOTLOOPS.... I take this up with the director who informs me she doesnt see anything wrong with this as it is all some of the kids will eat. I informed her that it is NOT what MY son eats and it is NOT appropriate nutrition for a toddler. She stated they would order honey nut cheerios -...
oops it went twice
The first questions we asked in the ER when someone came in for a fainting spell... Are you pregnant? Are you Sure? What medications are you on? (Blood pressure medicine in particular can cause dizziness and fainting as can some antidepressants, and allergic reactions to some antibiotics or other drugs) How heavy are your periods? (IE How long does it take you to soak one large maxi pad?) How frequent are they? how long do they last? Have you noticed any blood...
