Why can't everyone just be happy for each other? So cute that DH was so touched to see baby Madison. I don't have an OB or midwife yet. I have a midwife in mind but am trying to work with my insurance. I wouldn't mind having an OB, I just don't want to have to go on base to get all of my prenatal care. I think the ear infection is going away, I have a couple of sores in my mouth that I'm pretty sure were caused by the infection. When I get sick, the illness tends to manifest in the form of mouth sores. I have no idea why.
Yeah base care is annoying. All of my step family is air force, so I got to hear about the horror stories and the annoyance of it all. Where the mouth sores are, trying gurgling salt water. It's "suppose" to reduce them and work at killing infection. That's what I do when I get sore throats and there's sores back there. Either it actually works or I'm mentally tricking myself. I hope your insurance cooperates about the midwife! I wanted to attempt seeing one until I realized it was at least a 45 min drive without traffic each way, and then I found out my hospital doesn't allow them.

My sister is being whiny and said because she grew up with our grandmother on dad's side, she is the only one "entitled" to use our grandmother's stage (last) name. She's being selfish, and my father is thrilled. Besides, she used that grandmother's first name for her daughter. I never threw a fuss. And to think, she's the older one.

Yes, Vitafusion! I just took mine and had to look at the bottle. I use that brand for all of my vitamins these days. And my family is extremely petty and selfish. I wish we could all just get along.

Is that why she is looking like she's ahead? And I agree with everyone else that you both can use the middle name!
Who knows, there might be a cyst or two in there? As long as the baby is fine, that's what matters. Or, you're shedding left over uterine lining? I had that problem in my first pregnancy, to the point where we didn't even realize we were pregnant till I went in for a physical! My husband is about 6'1" and I'm 5'3" (shortest in my family, so EVERYONE joked I was switched at birth). For our stage of pregnancy, statistically Madison should be just reaching 5 inches. And as for the middle name, like I told everyone else, she's selfish. And she doesn't get sharing or respect or anything. She's still angry I can't come to her wedding that's a month before the baby is born, and constantly goes on tangents about it. I'd block her from everything, but that just causes more problems.
