My husband and I have a deal: Whatever goes on in my body (and with my instincts), he has no say over. He has no say over how/where I breastfeed, labor/deliver, cosleep, etc. And we too hold to more...

Keep in mind that the diet that the dieticians give is high in carbs. If your numbers are above the range your doctor wants, try to cut out more carbs. It might help keep you off meds.

Consider the weight on your pelvic floor. I always get a lot of BH, pain, and pressure on days that I am running and gunning. I too suggest lots of water and rest.
