Definitely. We're planning a home birth since there aren't good birthing centers near us as far as I can tell. My OB is very supportive of this decision and is basically there for me while we're TTC. I haven't figured out if she can remain my back-up if I need a hospital transfer, but at this point it doesn't matter. I will miss her soooo much. She's down-to-earth, honest, direct. Wah!

We just started TTC, so I hadn't even called any of the MW contacts I've gotten locally. There are a couple of good candidates, and I just left messages for them.

If you have good birth stories/ideas/recommendations, I'll take them. Please! I need a lot of help.

How exciting for you Geigerin!!! This is your first baby? weeee! There are tons of birth stories here on MDC over in Birth and Beyond. I definitely recommend Ina May's and Henci Goers books if you are looking for something to read..

Congrats again and lots of sticky baby vibes!

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

I read both the Ina May and Henci Goers book. I learnt from both of them but especially 'The Thinking Womans Guide to a Better Book' because it uses real scientific studies to back it up. It was invaluable when I was getting pressured to induce (I was late! late! late!) and gave me the courage to stand up and say "no no no'

Yeah, those OBs are worth their weight in gold! I hope you find the right care provider for you! So when are you expecting your baby? It must still be very surreal! No morning sickness yet?

I'll send you my birth story from my last birth if you want. I had a UC. I had a mw attended homebirth with DD, and I learnt that you should make clear agreements with your mw in advance.

Recently my ds2 did this to ds1 (they both got half long hair with bangs). At least noone got hurt by the scissors (pandabear shape, but still sharp!!!), and it wasn't PULLED out this time.

I already put the 'creativity' penbag out of reach of kids' hands (but once in a while 3yo gets hold of it anyway), and all sharp knives are out of reach for a loooong time, if not for peventing accidental cutting or stabbing incidents, for not having our kitchen cupboards or anything else cut by a very proud 3yo old urging us to come and look what he just did!

My 5yo has the occasional habbit to take a plastic knife of their kitchen set with him to school in his pocket (he likes smuggling his little toys like that :-) I would not see anything wrong with that except it's not toy day at school, and he got the idea of using it for imaginary 'stabbing'. I guess I know where this comes from . In a neighbourhood girl's house they got hold of the (real) pocket knife of her older brother, and she came in the kitchen where her mother and I were chatting, with the knife out and pointed outward. Mother took it after some hesitation, but then when girl insisted to have it back, just gave it back without blinking and send the kids back to play downstairs asking her to put it in its place. Not checking if it would actually happen. Knowing both of my kids where playing there, too, and knowing them, I couldn't stand it and had to double check on them, the whereabouts of this knife, and explain them about the danger of such a thing and not to ever look for it, touch it, and definitely warn an adult if a kid took it out.. Then they resumed playing with a so-called 'innocent' fake stabbing knife (that disappears in the handle when stabbed), my 5yo enjoyed the 'knife play', then stabbed me with it, and it was sharp, and 'stabbed' enough that it actually hurt me a little. Honestly, what's WRONG with ppl for having this stıuff around for, and with (young) kids in the house? I'm not comfortable having my kids go over there anymore, really, also since the mom isn't supervising any bit. Also, this may be an indicator for more possible hazards, isn't it? I'm not the hysterical type of parent, but such things truly bug me. Just as double teapots and such on stoves and tables and young kids running around in the same room (a boy from our street got his feet burnt like that, eg).

Hello!!!
Yes, I like this place. It's not that big and its full of friendly people, even though we are the only "foreigners" in the neighborhood, I think I'll adjust. This place is really hot though, but we have pools nearby and we lare going to live infront of little park. I was there to check the house yesterday, and I talked with some of the neighbors, Dd will be able to socialize more with other children here.

that's nr. 1! Well, it stands for 'occasional' since ds2 recently moved out of our bed/room now for full nights, most nights.
There's another one. He's a bf 'kid' now :-).

However, I never nursed two simultaneously, ds1 stopped nursing while I was pregnant of ds2...BUT he got some daily tasty bm in a cup with a straw for several months after ds2 was born since I had a huge supply plus stock in the freezer :-).

That would be fun. I would love a pregnant buddy. All of my friends in RL are not pregnant, and as far as I know are not planning to be.

I'm already thinking girl. Don't know why. I will honestly be so happy with either one. We've already decided not to circ if we have a boy. We're considering not finding out.

Thank you! What brought you both to Mexico? I loved the bit of Spain I've had the privelidge of seeing, Barcelona, but I hear it's nothing like the rest of the country. What part of Spain are you from?

For those who are curious, I tried to get pics of my tests...lol
