Friday morning I had some serious bloody show and the contrax got stronger and longer. By the time DH got home at about 4 they were getting...

I'm so anxious to hear your story too! I've even check yours and Mal's MySpace pages from your myspace link and am really really excited for you and inspired by you. Congrats! I hope you sign into MDC soon and are having a great time with new baby at the same time. I read your blog and loved loved loved the girls name. I almost cried it was so beautiful!

(and a person would get out of that the same way as vaxing; being a member of a recognised religion...
This is a really kewl site http://www.peeonastick.com/ about home pregnancy tests, I got a really faint line on my first test too- almost didn't beleive it although it does look alot different than yours does because of the extra line on yours. I used the expensive ones first and nothing showed up yet, but then I used the dollar store tests about a week later, and they definitely do work! I highly recommend them because the others are such a waste if you are trying to...

It's frustrating! My midwife is trying to talk my into getting my membranes stripped net week. I don't know how I feel about that. She's also preparing me to lie to the Drs. if and when I hit 42 weeks and I "have" to go in for a stress test and/or induction. I'll...
Quote: embarassing question, but on the basic mechanics - are you just looking for cord in front of the neck or behind? or both? is it possible to be trying to unloop the cord from around the neck and actually end up makng the situation worse? That's exactly what I was wondering, so I just decided not to worry about it as a previous poster mentioned that wrapped cords are common and the thing about the placenta detaching as the head crowns. ...
I've really been wondering how you were doing. You are welcome to email me. I think it's in my profile.
I'm feeling somewhat the same you are. My baby has been down low ever since the second ultrasound in January. But not below pelvic bone low. I had a bleeding problem at about 20 or so weeks, and that was really scary! But It turned out to be no big deal even after I went to the OB urgent care which was kind of a waste of time, but I really wanted to know that it was okay. Haven't had any problems with sex though, just afraid it would cause bleeding again but it...

We waited for the placenta, and then some. What is TCM?
