My little guy and I did great. Hospital VBAC #2. WHich they kept telling me was just a regular vaginal delivery. Yay my hospital and OB!! And yay us! Here he is... http://cooldogbaby.com/theo/
I tried to get him to squat he wasn't having that either. We carry a bottle for him to pee in now. And yes I know what you mean about the hammer. I'm on the fence about going.
ooooooh isn't that song nice? It's Miracle Baby by Staci Frenes www.stacifrenes.com I see you had yourself a miracle baby . Congrats to you too mama!!
So DS has been having some minor issues with his penis that I wrote about here...http://www.mothering.com/discussions...3#post15608073 Basically he has some ballooning, small amounts of blood on underwear, pain while urinating.

I didn't get a return call from the woman that was running the meeting the other day, but I'll call next week to follow up. My OB thinks that all the calls to DPH and MAH really helped out too :-))) Yay us!
DPH is meeting RIGHT NOW to discuss the issue. Apparently all women currently in labor can use a tub with nurse supervision until the matter is decided. Stay tuned...
So I have been informed by my OB at Mount Auburn Hospital that I will not be allowed to labor in a tub at MAH. The Mass DPH has a new regulation that says the tub must be accessible on three sides in order to be used by a woman in labor. Apparently they have taken all the plugs out of the tubs. I am completely and utterly disturbed by this implications of this for all women, but selfishly for my own birth coming up in 6 weeks or so. The tub was the only way I...
