Hi Stephanie, I think we might be a bit far from each other for a playdate :( I hope you find some moms in your area.
Stephanie, where are you located?
Hi i'm Andrea, Mom of 3 girls moving to the North Kingstown area this week. Love to meet up with anyone in that area. :)
I packed granola bars, nuts, dried fruit, juice, recharge, bananas. Basically snack foods. Then when I was actually in labor I was starving!! Early labor started at about breakfast so I ate 2 eggs and toast. Then lunch came around and I was still having contractions about 7 mins apart that were strong but I was starving so I are a chicken salad sandwich with extra chicken salad on the side, tons of grapes, cheese, lettus, and a few other odds and ends I was stuffed by the...
Fast and furious!! My 2nd birth was exactly the same length as yours. They sound very similar. It's like your done before you realize you started. Your little boy is beautiful! Congradulations!!!

But we are making some progress on the right side so it's looking up. But even wirse I came down with a fever on the evening of the second day. Anywhere from 100-102, which gives my the sweats and uncontrollable chill which make my whole body shake. My midwife came to check everything and I'm...
