Hi, ladies. Sorry I've been crazy-busy, and haven't posted in a while. My DH was sick last weekend with a stomach bug, I found and started using a couple of other homeschool moms as childcare for my...

Rosemarino, don't you feel that it's totally unfair that some super healthy things, like hummus, also make us gassy or give heartburn? It seems like those things should make us feel better so we'll...

I agree with Rosemarino. You're completely right & feel free to rant away. This is the Mothering board- we're all a bit fanatic about some of this stuff, right!? ;)

As for the car seats, I don't...

I'm glad you mentioned the RRL tea. I had forgotten about it. I need to get some - where do you get yours, Lisa? I wonder if Trader Joe's will have some?

I admit I've not been really keeping up...

I share the fear of disempowerment. It is what has happened to me at every single birth, and what I fear most, aside from catastrophic medical complications/death. I've attempted 3 natural...

I agree, Rosemarino, it really helps to post here, even if it isn't being read.

Yeah, you all are on the right track. You know baby is really tiny, and you can only feel movement that's directed at just the right nerves. As things grow and move around, sometimes baby might favor...

I guess we have different standards, Rosemarino, but sounds like you did OK to me. We're pregnant, not saints, lol. ;)

Oh, yes! I forgot about the leaking. Fortunately, it usually only happens in the first few months of nursing, and is done (hence the forgetting, lol). One time, I was standing in my kitchen, having a...

Rosemarino, I'm glad it went so well! :)

I'm starting to feel little bumps. You'd think that on my 4th pregnancy, I'd be able to easily ID the difference between my stomach/intestines and a baby,...

I second what Rosemarino said. It's probably nothing, but it's better to call your OB & see what she thinks. They don't mind calls about things that worry us. It's their job.

I like the nightlight suggestion, especially since this is your first. A lot of new moms find latching a newborn requires some visibility, at least at first. My mother bought me a "bed jacket" to...
