We decided to pass on the stroller with dd. We did end up buying a cheapy ($10) umbrella stoller when dd was a little less than year. We did a lot of babywearing, and I never felt like I needed a stoller. When dd was about 6 months old, we did buy an affordable jogging stoller, as I wanted to start running again. For walks though, I kept carrying dd (in the Ergo usually, or the backpack). No harm in waiting...I always felt much more free without a stroller. We...

I would recommed you read "Birthing from Within"- I really feel like it helped me prepare for my dd's birth. I did attend a hospital class with her, it was focused on natural pain relief techniques, it was awesome. But of course, I wouldn't expect most hospital classes to be that way. So, no, I don't think they are "necessary". Each woman prepares for her labor/birth in her own way
Congrats! Personally, this pregnancy has become much more "real" now that we know we are having a son. But it does still feel weird to call him "him"! I guess we will get more used to it as more time passes
I made my own belly cast with my dd, at about 37 weeks. But you can really do it anytime I am not in your ddc, but am kind of close It was very easy, and much cheaper then buying a "kit".

I had my husband and mother help me, as they had to work quickly as it dries rather fast. Here are some pretty...

I didn't love My Breat Friend, but I really hated that when I got up, it was still on me. This may be great for some, but I am willing to try a different pillow this time around. I'm not in your ddc
My dd was born on her due date, exactly 40 weeks. From water breaking to birth: 13 hours From first regular contraction (15 min or less apart) to water breaking: 48+ hours. I was very very tired from not sleeping much the two days prior to my water breaking. It was way way longer than I would have every imagined it would be. BUT....I did it, without any pain medications or interventions.... I was hoping it would be a "fast" labor, it was not meant to be. Long...

tomato, mozzarela and basil salad...I just can't get enough. Yes, peaches and nectarines!
We celebrated 20 weeks just 3 days ago. My dh took my dd and myself out to dinner, a special way for us to celebrate this mark.
