Eleanor was 7 lbs 13 oz at birth and Wednesday at 8 weeks she was exactly 12 lbs.
Hi all - I haven't been a DDC regular due to a busy life away from the computer, but I wanted to share my birth story with you. I've really enjoyed reading the stories in the September group and now here! I had my membranes stripped at 2:00 pm on Tuesday the 28th (40 weeks +1) after a long chat with my OB about my gestational diabetes and when she would require me to be induced.

From what I understand the hospital here has changed procedures and they...
I'm 38 weeks today and have been feeling like my period is about to start for the past week and a half. It comes and goes - I find it most often happens at night.

I have been noticing the past few days they coincide with my BH more often. Oh, and I totally agree with EzzysMom on the constipation! Way more cramps if I haven't gone...
