I agree with lilitchka. I consider BH to just be when my uterus gets hard but that's the only sensation. I've had sooo many of them this pregnancy and they are great for getting the uterus toned. But...

I don't think that you'll find homeopathy to be an uncommon recommendation on MDC. I don't see it as my responsibility to defend the entire practice to you, whoever you are. I fail to see what it is...

37 weeks and not as much support as I had hoped :(

So I have been planning a free birth since before my current pregnancy. I felt called to it with my first, but there were so many unknowns that I felt more comfortable with a midwife. When I started...

This exact thing happened to me in my first pregnancy. At my week 9 checkup they did the culture, it came back positive for E. coli I think. I was completely asymptomatic, and I also had never had a...

It does hurt physically, but not really badly; I'd say it hurts about the same as a Pap smear. I had it done last time with DS on the day before his due date and I did have him that day. I was so...

It's been hours since you posted so I hope you got some sleep or a baby. In early labor you can try taking a shower or bath if your aim is to slow things down and get some relief/sleep. Good luck!

With DS he slept on me for the first few weeks, then between us, then in the co-sleeper. This worked awesome for us and we will do it again. After he outgrew the co-sleeper we were pretty lost and he...

I am pretty sure my milk is gone, though it's hard to tell. DS (18 months) still nurses frequently, but during the day he usually only nurses like 20 seconds at a time. He still nurses for nap and...
