I found during pregnancy my obsessive compulsive disorder slowed down and I was much more relaxed than I normally am. Now baby is 13 days old and I'm finding my anxiety and ocd increasing. I suffered with ppd with dd2 and I am starting to get very anxious that I will have it again. I am also over worrying about things happening to her. Not that I will do something to her just the what ifs and I feel my heart start racing and I can't stop the thoughts. I am also getting...
This is my third baby and with my other two (15 and 13 now) I listened to other people and let them cry. I sure wish I had listened to my instincts! But I was very young! This time I think I get more anxious when she cries and I want to make sure everything I can do to make her more comfortable is done. I am tired of hearing from my parents just let her cry it's healthy for her to cry! She's only 13 days old! : With this babe we are committed to parenting her a whole...
Oh Thank You! You just re affirmed why I am not taking Emerson to any ped! I hate hate hate doctors and unless it is a true emergency I don't take any of my children to the doctor. Some days I wish that I could find a really good doc that was in line with my beliefs but alas that is a dream world! I have only done homopathic remedies for years now... the last time I saw a doc personally they didn't have a clue anyway and I took the right homopathic remedy and cured myself...

We just had a uc and didn't tie off the cord with anything. We waited about 2 hours and the cord had completely stopped pulsing then dh cut the cord. There was a bit of bleeding but not much. Next time I think I would wait even longer but I was just ready to have it cut so we could move around better. oh and placenta was out within a half an hour or so. And an excellent book that I found solidified my uc beliefs was Laura Shanley's book Unassisted Birth!

For three of my hb's my old mw always checked my iron and it was low so I would take liquid chorophyll.

I didn't bleed heavily like what I normally did. talked to new mw about it and another mw she worked with...
