Ha, granite! I was going to delurk to wave my arm and say we got knocked up on CD90. We joke that Alex came from a cobwebby egg and swimmers that had three or four trips back to the bank's cold...

Starling: That sounds almost exactly like our philosophy for food. We successfully took alex to a pretty fancy restaurant this weekend for DP's bday, too. He ate Spanish tapas right alongside us,...

Darcy - do you have, or could you get ASAP, a speculum? Sounds like cervix observation could give you really useful info for future cycles (which I hope you won't need!). Amazon sells them; it's...

Hmm, planet, that sounds like a tough one. Are you close enough to your mom that you can have a heart to heart in the next few weeks? I think it would be important to convey what a wonderful mom she...

Granite - threadcrashing from my lurkdom at Q&P. I had crazy long and erratic cycles when we were TTC. Then I found my midwife, and vitex worked really well for me. So well, in fact, that I ovulated...

We did a lot of "ouch, that hurts mama's ears" spoken softly while making the sign for hurt and pointing to my ear. And "you can use a gentle voice." At 17 months he still tries out his screeches...

Another vote for PDX. Also check out Minneapolis-St Paul. A little more centrally located, but very family and gay friendly. That's my hometown, PDX is our chosen home.

Planet, I'm now remembering the phase where Alex would wake to nurse at about 4 am, and would only fall back asleep on my chest. I also hated the way I had to hold my arms up, but I stayed in bed...

Planet, I can't recall, do you guys have a swing? We used one a lot for Alex's naps at that age. I know some kiddos hate the front to back swing, but like the side to side swing (or vice versa).

I second the prenatal massage idea for a gift - if she doesn't want to use it now, she'll love regular massages in the last few months. I'd also suggest really comfy but nice pajamas. I happened to...

My understanding is that when you start giving solid foods, you should also give a tiny bit of water (a few sips), to avoid constipation.

Our DS is currently standing on his, having a pre-bed snack of applesauce. I built it in an afternoon from online plans, and it cost us about $50. We use it many times a day. I love that its always...

Take an infant CPR class, so you know what to do if he's truly choking--which he can do whether it's chunks or purees now, or almonds later. Our little guy gagged several times with BLW, but we knew...

I used a pool noodle on the outside edge of the bed, but more to prevent me from rolling out as I'd adjust around the baby (who was usually in the middle). Occasionally, I'd put him on the...

Alex (14 months) either goes to sleep in our bed or his at about 7/8, then he joins us or we join him at 10/10:30.

In our bed, we put pillows on either side of him. And it's a fairly low platform...
