ok- throw some more fire in,

Add to the "are you circing him?" sounding like will you bathe him (loved that analogy btw )

"are you going to formula feed or try breastfeeding?" Sets mama up to fail
"Did you want to leave the baby in the room tonight or get your rest and send him to the nursury?" Like you would leave the baby far away at home!

and of course before you start really laboring.....

"Did you want to try without the epidural for a while?"
"Do you want to move this along with a pitcn drip?"
"Well give it another hour and then we can c section if you don't progress"
"If we do an episodomy we can then get the baby out"

this is all for your Dr's conveniences the way its worded. It also puts down the parents imo and I have heard these all used whether with me, other friends or that show on TLC which I cannot watch anymore or I might blow a gasket. These sayings also set the poor mama up for guilt later on as we are finding out....OK off my soapbox!

LeighAnn, thanks for your wonderful compliment, it means the world to me. But really, I could no more judge anyone here than get into a fight with a pitbull. I find that if I take the humbling way, I can be exalted someday since its much easier than be exalted and then humbled. I am trying to live my faith and also we need to be positive role models for our dc which is a challenge in itself somedays I really do not think anyone meant to make anyone here feel guilty about choices but wanted to inform them too!

Well, perhaps not HERE as in this DDC, but definitely IRL and at MDC do people definitely have the intention of making others feel guilty and/or inferior by their comments.

That's what bothers me and why I complimented you b/c it can be very easy to do I'm sure I've been guilty of it on a number of occasions myself

Totally off-topic, but after seeing the pictures...does anyone else think Angelina might be in the "June" due date club?!

amy and leighanne~you two are so wise and wonderful! you two sound like great women who have their heads firmly square on their shoulders. im glad and lucky to be in our ddc together. and im so glad that this forum hasn't become what some others are like :

i love that we can discuss topics that are usually debatable and become heated, like knowledgeable adults, seeing all sides of an issue. all you ladies are great! and im so happy to be sharing this experience with you guys!

ok, so on to the angelina topic, not to sound like a total goob, but are you guys referring to angelina jolie? also gwen stefani from "no doubt" is also pregnant and due in june! and i've also heard that gweneth paltrow is too. not sure when she's due....ok, enough of my celebrity gossip nonsense, my "insatiable lust for hollywood gossip" roots are starting to show! :

i have been so busy i haven't had time to log on and then i didn't get email updates and figured you guys weren't talking... um, guess i forgot to log on after my last email update. anywho, we had our ultrasound yesterday and the tech says boy number 2 is coming, but she also said he was rather shy.... so, again, i tentatively say boy but reserving judgement until the baby comes out

and if this is baby 2, that will be my second uncirced babe. my family didn't do it so actually didn't consider it myself though my dh is circed. we shall see if i ever convince him to restore, but that is a conversation reserved for the circ section so i will end now...

and go back to wondering if baby 2 will look like baby 1

Well, we met with one midwife last night and one today and are going to hire the midwife we spoke with today!!! I was actually comfortable with them both, but the one today lives about 3 miles from me, comes to my house for all appointments, and just all-around worked better for us. So, now I have to call the other midwife and let her know we'll be going with someone else.

It'll cost us between $4000 and $5000 out of our own pocket for everything - the midwife, the doula, any labs (cord blood type & cross as I am Rh-), and any thing we need to buy for the actual home/water birth. But, we (dh and I) feel it is so worth it ... today he was like, "So, $100 for a hospital birth or $5000 for a homebirth?" and I said, "Homebirth!!!"

I was thinking that too.

I had to finally crack out my maternity clothes today. After 2 weeks in sweat pants I thought it was time. I have some cute stuff I had forgotten about.

Wow - that's great news - congrats And once again, your good news has helped me feel better too. We have to pay $2.8K for a homebirth and likely 80% of that should be reimbursed...but OB would be out-of-pocket, up front absolutely ZERO, but you're right - it's going to be WORTH IT!!

Oh and my m/w comes to our home for all appts and it is heavenly. No cold waiting rooms, reading crappy mainstream pg magazines for me

On the whole, no, but I do have my moments, that's for sure (and sometimes they last a whole day). This has definitely been my most "emotional" pg that I can remember, mostly making me feel like crying than the other way around.

Hi I'm back from Ca and rested!

I too am not necessarlily depressed but clearily annoyed with some people IRL. Even now some people really get at me and I remember that normally they bother me anyway, so now that I am prego, it multiplies times 1000. So I keep reminding myself that and try to just avoid them etc...

Feeling depressed can come from various things, I remember feeling that way last time when I went on bedrest. I also know mamas who felt that way esp the first time because your body is doing weird foreign changes that you have not done anytime before and that could throw you for a loop whereas this time around, Im saying- oh there goes that again.... Can you talk to other mamas who have already been thru this? And I do not mean the type where nothing happened at all when they were prgnt- we all know her!!

So I watched the Golden Globes last night, and is it just me, or do all the other celebrity pg women (besides Angelina) also look like they would be due around June? I'm thinking Gwyneth, Rachel Weisz, Gwen Stefani, etc. Weird??

I did not see the awards, but the dresses the next day. The paper had a spread on the pregos. I think Gwenyth is due when we are and so is Angolina.

So could they be talking with us???
