Wow do I have some catching up to do.
Babycakes - with your DD's YI, is she on probiotics? I would suggest that to speed up her recovery. Sorry she's in pain :( I am glad though that your MW appt went so well, yay! Its so good to feel the MW warm and fuzzies
karalynnskies - welcome, and its so cute how happy you are
nugget's mommy - glad I am not the only one in the mild symptom club. Good for you for starting your VBA2C research so early. I would be put off by the blood test thing too
Birdie B - hopefully by the time classes start, you'll be on the other side of this feeling yuck.
KnittingKara - do you have an ipod or iphone? I just downloaded some great toddler apps and they are wonderful for what my friend coined "couch parenting"
mkat83 - I say bring DH, its fun, plus he can have a comparative for care standards if you end up wanting to go the HB route
ursusarctos - the fact that you haven't had mac n cheese, especially our horrid but quite yummy fromt he blue box kind, is adorable. You don't know the chemical mess of deliciousness you are missing. In some ways, I think CNM care in the hospital is GREAT, but I guess I can see how Finland's policy has the mum's missing out on the connection and trust with a MW. I am sure there are stalled labors and interventions because things aren't clicking or comfy between them.
bookwormommy - I second cal mag for the leg cramps. Natural Calm from Whole Foods will do the trick.
Miranda2r14 - I am glad you found your MW too, yay! Mine doesn't want necessarily high protein, just making sure I get it consistently
mamalimey - I am so glad everything looks great. Yay! Thanks for the tip on the B6, with my lacking M/S I was wondering if my Thorne's B was enough, its only 10mg of B6 but maybe it is enough to keep is minimal for me.
copper.kettle - I know, with DS, down in our play room, its always "Get me get me". He wants to run around and me chase him, and I just want to sit and read books. These poor guys, it will be better in the spring when we feel better and they can run ragged outside.
CrazyCatLady - is that 2 weeks later than what you were thinking? GL with this morning's US.
AFM, I met with the HB MW I was wanting to go with last Thurs but had some reservations going in (you can see my post on the HB group), but walking out of there after a 90min+ chat I felt so comfortable in her care, so I am going ahead with her. OMG, I am actually having a homebirth!!!! I am so excited and happy about it. My symptoms have been waining, obviously anxiety inducing and I can't take my own advice on the subject. 7 weeks today and I have to wait 4 more to hear the HB. I have the creamy undies (sorry TMI), bigger boobs, and some back soreness, but the M/S from the past two weeks is gone. I want it back! I know I'll regret that, but maybe I am just on top of the eating enough to prevent it. Like you all, I can echo the sentiments with loosing the 1-1 with DS. With how rough his 1st year was, we got so close and I am so in tuned with him. Because it was so rough, its just now that I am really getting to enjoy mothering him with out all the medical stuff in the way, its under control enough now to not be the major focus anymore, and I am LOVING IT. I really wonder what #2 will do to our relationship, even if a sibling is a gift he can't understand until he's older. I got down all the baby clothes from the attic and am sorting and reorganizing, (and selling the ugly crap). So EMO to see my favorite outfit I first bought for Chase that says " I like trucks and dirt" and another little boy may wear it or I may be selling all these preppy cute things come spring.
