You never really know until you know. You can describe it all down to every detail, but no one can tell whether you're having twins or not except your OB. As far as the information you received when you were eight, I would get a second, third and fourth opinion because doctors sometimes say the strangest things when they just aren't sure. I wouldn't let something a doctor told me when I was eight dictate what I do as an adult unless another doctor confirms it.

Some women do abuse their spouses and it doesn't always...
Kids Are Worth It?? While most of us have had to beat "Babywise" off with a stick, you're upset that your MIL bought you an AP-friendly parenting book? Okay. The Jessica Seinfeld book...I bought it and I haven't seen one thing wrong with it. Of course, I don't think it is fundamentally wrong to give kids more vegetables and fruit, so that is the place where I am coming from. I have absolutely no family nearby, and would be thrilled if there was another family...
Gasp, this is a hard post to make, but I have to just put it out there if I hope for some support.... DH and I were vegan for about 4 years (I was actually raw for about 6 months during that time, too, and felt great, but had a hard time maintaining it). After I had my DS and we moved across the country, we fell off the wagon bigtime and have been eating meat (none red...but chicken and fish) for about the past 2.5 years. We've also been much more lenient about the...

Unfortunately people judge whether or not someone is "AP" based on what THEY do or don't do and using their own yardstick to measure. Luckily for us all, there are many choices within the AP label/lifestyle. In case you're wondering what constitutes an "AP": http://www.askdrsears.com/html/10/t130300.asp and http://www.attachmentparenting.org/ideals.shtml http://www.attachmentparenting.org/idealschindex.shtml In AP circles, I've heard people criticize others'...

We know each other in sort of a professional capacity as we are both Girl Scout leaders and her...

It can be so hard to be different than those around you I don't like (as in I don't see it as appropriate) the casual use of the word nazi in your post. I realize you have the right to say it, just thought I'd voice my thought. I don't particularly care for being labeled that way, either, but being very active in breastfeeding issues, advocacy, that is a...

DH's reasons were the usual - he thinks homeschool...
