Is acupuncture really used to induce labor? I didn't realize that. Is it often successful? I'll have to look into it. I don't know anything about cohosh (yet). Thanks!

Interestingly, I don't like Tina, Gina, etc. either, but somehow Lena feels like it's in a different category. It's got a sultry quality (I guess from Ms. Horne?) that I really dig. It's cute on a...

Thanks for the reply! I actually did need a pad after the exam and it was mucus-y (I'm sorry - gross, I know), so I think that really may have been the plug. Today I'm a tiny bit crampy, but it...

Thanks for your honesty. Sylvie is our preferred name, since it's the French version and our last name is very French, but it feels a bit too nicknamey, so we wanted to give her a more "grown up"...
