You can imagine how furious I was with him over this.) and died of it a few months later. Most cats in my life have...
It might be my pregnany hormones talking, but I can not handle my job anymore. To problem is I can't quit. First of all, we really need the money right now to pay off school loans and other debt. Secondly, I have a good deal at my job where I only work in the office 3 days a week and "work at home" the other 2, but get paid full-time at a very nice salary. I'm not going to get that at any other ad agency. So If I left, I'd probably have to work all 5 days, many more hours...
Thanks everyone for your input. Sorry I didn't get on sooner, I was having a very hormonal weekend and couldn't even stand to be near a computer. Don't worry, no ones post here worried me. I know what the "worst-case" scenario is and I was glad to hear a mom who trusts her body give me her experience, instead of some moms who had freaked because their body had done something "funky" and they had to deal with it. I have an appt. with my OB next week and will go in armed...
Quote: But still.. who gives a crap? Why not just shave your puss too! : I was considering getting a brazillian wax when I was 8-months pregnant with DS. Having the same thoughts now that I'm pregnant again. Don't know why, I can't even see down there.
Can you cut the bottom open more so water empties out better?
My 15-month old son was born c/s. I am 22 weeks pregnant with #2. I had also heard that because of the short time frame that I would probably have to have another c/s. When I spoke with my OB practice the docs were very supportive of me trying a VBAC. Gave me all the pros of VBAC and all the cons of a repeat c/s. One doc even thought I was crazy for even thinking of planning a repeat c/s. From some of the OB horror stories I've heard, I feel that since I've been blessed...
I am 22 weeks and an had my level 2 ultrasound today. My baby is perfectly fine however it turns our I have placental previa. My OB practice is really great and very laid back about birth and pregnancy. (For example, my 15-month old son was born c-section. When I found out I was preggers again I had heard from other people that since it was so soon after the birth of my son that I'd probably have to have a c/s again. But my drs. have all been encouraging me to have a VBAC,...
Did I read correctly that this momma is doing some type of drugs while pregnant? Personally I would try to address the harm she is doing to her unborn child before I even tackle the issue of the child's birth.
Quote: Originally posted by Mamid Mother pleads guilty Who the is her lawyer??? She should have pleaded not guilty and had a kick ass lawyer defend her. ACLU maybe. Why would the ACLU have defended her? It's not a civil right to use cocaine and alcohol when you are pregnant. If she hadn't of plead guilty she would have been probably received a much harsher sentence if this had went to trial. Do you think a jury would look favorably on a...
My understanding of the ECV was they give it three tries and if it doesn't work, you are taken in for a c-section because of the risks OnThe Fence mentioned. I was in early labor when we discovered I was breech and tried an ECV but was unsuccessful, and had to have a c-section. Now, I'm not opposed to c-sections so I wasn't too upset. Not what I expected, but I was fine with my son's birth.
