I posted Eleanor's birth story over in the Cesarean forum.  We did get my OB to try the ECV but it didn't work.  He was surprised at how mobile she was, but still couldn't get her anywhere other...

Thanks CI Mama!  I really like the phrase "fierce attachment."  I never felt what I would describe as euphoric love, but I definitely felt the attachment after all three of mine were born by c/s.  I...

I'd think the top potential culprits would be dairy, egg and tomato.  There is a lot more dairy in the lasagna than "a little" butter in mashed potatoes and if it's an escalating reaction, that...

I've had great success with Floradix for an iron supplement and found it non-constipating.  Since constipation can lead to more pain, it's definitely worth following all the great advice above about...

My kids have severe food intolerances.  They don't show up on allergy tests for IgE or IgG, but clearly they react to the foods in question.  My oldest had an anaphylactic dairy allergy that he...

It depends on whether lactose is part of the sensitivity.  One of my dairy-sensitive sons is fine with it, the other (and myself) are not.  There are a multitude of proteins and other molecules to...

To cover the incision, you need something clean and absorbent.  I don't like maxis because they are full of crap I don't want on me and don't use them for my periods.  I used some rolled up undies...
