My doctor just switched me from Zoloft to Wellbutrin XL 150 mgs. Reading the paperwork that came with the prescription, it says not to take if breastfeeding. Now the pharmacist said when I called that there was one study where it caused birth defects in babies whose mothers had taken it while pregnant. But that the studies now showed that it was undetectable in nursing infants. So I am on the fence as to whether or not to take this. I was the one who asked for the...
Although how BFing one year olds ever became extended is crazy to me. A little bit of history. None of my in-laws have ever BF'd. And its obvious that they are more than a little eek'd out that I ever BF'd the twins at all. A lot of comments like "I would never BF because I have to leave my kids and can't stand being with them so much of the time. How do you know they are getting enough? etc. etc. So this weekend we are staying at in-laws and our routine is that...

We can take this to pm if you want. I am trying tounderstand where you are coming from. No you obviously are not. You are being snide about my opinion that differs from yours. But that is Aok on MDC. As long as your opinion is in the majority, so don't worry. :

In womyn who are not micro-managed in their labor, believe in their bodies...

So you are saying that the fact that my birth was...

I just do not understand your mind-set nor do I want to.

Oh and I did have one of those "crash" C-sections where I had to undergo general anesthesia. My DS had a prolapsed cord and he could have died without an immediate C-section. He almost did die as a matter of fact, even with it.

I didn't say that I personally felt guilty because I have no reason to. What offends me is women who try to make women who choose pain relief during labor feel guilty. Big difference. Also, to the PP who said "a little pain on...
Yes, I had a very positive hospital birthing experience with my first DD. PM me for details because I fear that putting them here will lead to censorship and the thread being deleted.
