Hi Everyone: Congrats to all! This is my 4th pregnancy and it has been horrible. I don't want to get into every little detail, but today I had my 32 week appt. and my blood pressure was up, not too much, I had sugar in my urine (+2) for a second time, and traces of protein, and the baby is posterior. I do natural water births and now I'm scared that my dreams of ending my child-bearing years positive, are going to be negative! I did flunk the 1st diab. test, and I...
I didn't get to see the 20/20 special but did read everyone's posts and read the link. I think there should be advertising for breastfeeding, but it should be about that, not bashing ff mothers. Isn't it a choice as a mother to make what she wants to give her child! She shouldn't feel guilty or pressured about it, breast milk or formula! I think a mother makes her mind up once she's pg what she wants to do and no ads, breast or formula, are going to change that! What...
Enjoy! I woke up the morning of Aug. 11 around 9:00a.m. and went to the bathroom and noticed blood. I was losing so much mucus and having contractions for about a month and every week I thought I was in labor, so seeing blood, I knew for sure this was it! I started cleaning like a maniac. I was having a little cramping throughout the day, but nothing bad. In the evening, we went out for dinner. My girlfriend came over around 8:30 p.m. just in case I went in the...
Yogamama: Congratulations on your little girl! Sounds like a wonderful experience. I get so excited to hear other people's birth stories, thanks for sharing. You probably won't have time to write back, but did you think the hypnobirthing worked? Did you really need a Doula? How did you like West Sub. I'm delivering there is August. Congrats to you and your family again! Zoe
Beth: I delivering in Aug. too. Which midwife group are you going too? I'm seeing Gayle Riedman's group for a consultation next week and also taking a hospital tour. Where is Swedish Covenant? Zoe
Has anyone delivered at West Suburban Hospital? Thinking about having a waterbirth. Any experiences/information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Zoe
I want a homebirth so bad, but my baby could have a possibility of being hypothyroid, since I'm hyper. I see a regular OB right now, and she is your typical doctor, and it's just not for me! I know if I ask her questions, she'll probably report me for child abuse or something, since it seems regular doc's think homebirthers are nutts! I have a few questions I hope someone can answer. Does the baby get tested for hypothyroid if you have a homebirth? If the baby...
Jennie: It was weird seeing your post, b/c I just heard news from the dr. this past Friday. I'm pg, due in Aug. never had problems w/ Thyroid before. Referred to specialist, and afer two rounds of bloodwork, right now my TSH is very low but everything else is normal so she's not labeling me. Thank goodness. She told me that no matter if you're on meds or not, having hyperthyroid, you're considered a high-risk pregnancy. What I was told is that if you are on meds,...
What type of questions should I ask when considering Montessori preschool? After reading many posts, it seems each school is so different. Thanks in advance.
Any information on hypnobirthing would be greatly appreciated!
