I was just thinking it might come up this week because I'll have my pants off for my group B strep test. But I think I'll skip it, if she offers. My last ob-gyn always seemed to be offering to look...

What's wrong with cervical checks?

It seems like I've read that it's a good idea to decline cervical checks, but I don't remember why. I know that after your water breaks they increase the risk of infection, but are there risks before...

I found yoga pants with a rollover top fit just as well as maternity pants, and there is a much bigger selection available. I prefer under-the-belly style maternity pants, but if you prefer full...

Well, in the few hours since I posted, the baby decided to move out of the transverse position for the first time! I'm not sure if he's head down or not, but he's definitely in an entirely different...

It's seems a bit early to be worried. He still seems to have a lot of room to maneuvers - I feel him on my hip then up near my ribs a moment later. I'm expecting this baby to arrive in about nine...

Brown indicates old blood. Bright red blood might be concern. It sounds like you're OK.

With the anxiety and sickness, the first trimester is the worst. I wish there were some words of wisdom that...

Mine seems to be transverse (sideways), or at around a 2 and 8 o'clock position. I'm 32 weeks. I think I feel better having him transverse rather than breech, because transverse indicates he still...

My doctor told me that physical strain isn't going to hurt my baby, only me. Something to keep in mind. Personally, I'd rather hear a wishy-washy answer than being told I am prohibited from doing...

i didn't have that feeling either, and I went to almost 42 weeks. I mean, I got increasingly uncomfortable throughout the pregnancy, but there was never some line I crossed.

I feel like this...

I can't see what you're talking about. I wonder if it's my computer or I'm not looking in the right place.

The research is not fresh in my mind, but I was quite the expert on the subject, as I debated two perinatologists and one ob-gyn! They were really freaked out by my refusal to just go along with the...

Try telling that to a doctor though! My first pregnancy I was told I couldn't go a day over 41 weeks. I'm very tall. My mom's pregnancies all went past 42 weeks. It's bizarre to set an arbitrary...

Am I the only one who knows? I took the NIPT test six weeks ago. And they were able to tell me at the 12-week scan.

I really want another boy (mostly because we already have boy stuff). I was...

I have to say, it is strange that you came to a website called "Mothering" and complained that it seems focused on women, and used a derogatory term for parents ("breeders").

I'm confused about the Doppler. I don't recall having one done at any point during my last pregnancy. Why not do a regular ultrasound for a check on the baby's heartbeat? Do some people's...
