* Donning flame-retardant suit for the mommy battle that makes the Hezballah/Israeli conflict look like a thumb war...* Yeah. Yeah, bottom line, I think it's not AP. Here's why: Just for the record before the flamers start firing up, I am notreferring to parents whose economic or personal situations basically require that they send their child to daycare. Those would include things like, "I'm a single parent who's not independently wealthy," or, "I have such...

I've had lots of early bh ctx with each pregnancy - I start noticing them by about 9 or 10 weeks. But how often is 'normal' for you ? Whenever I'm tired, need to pee, or am a little dehydrated. Drowning the contractions by drinking tons of water realllllly helps.

That said, this is absolutely not age-based discrimination; it is behavior-based discrimination. Rest assured that if an...

What do you say? Why? The pregnant "for" irritates the crap out of me I'm sure it's just because I'm not used to it. Uh, being a surrogate mom, the only "pregnant for" I can think of would be as in, "I am pregnant for M and A, the baby's parents."

STUPID - but not nepharious. BUT, still needs correcting. It doesn't matter if he was thoughtless or nefarious. Either one could have had the same result. Here are some examples you can feel free...

My parents live in Midwest - small rural commmunity on golf course. DS is only grandchild. My parents adore him. We take him to visit often - 2 to 3x year. My parents really wanted an "alone"...
I've had one. "My First Shower" was painfully, excruciatingly familiar to me. She's taken horror and made it oddly beautiful because of the horror, and more horrifying because of the beauty. In so many ways -- not style, but in attitude -- she reminds me of my favorite painter, Frida Kahlo.
Quote: Originally Posted by maxmama Being overweight is a risk factor for GDM; it doesn't cause it. I see a lot of normal-weight moms who exercise, with no family history of DM, who do end up with GDM. It's partly why I think screening for GDM is reasonable. Uncontrolled GDM in pregnancy is appropriately treated with meds if diet isn't working. Sugar is rarely the issue for GDM moms; a lot will spike their sugars with breakfast cereal, milk...
