Should I call my insurance to see what they cover if someone doesn't make it to the hospital? I guess I can feel out my midwife. I'm going to Jordan midwifery, but haven't even had my first appt and...

When I called, they said I had to attend a "Welcome group". Where they talk about nutrition and stuff I guess. I still haven't gone yet. I have to reschedule. Do you like it there?

I wouldn't mind the welcome group so much if they did it after they confirmed the pregnancy. What if there's an empty sac or anything else wrong? I've also had some very slight spotting, so I wonder...

It's completely normal. There's no reason for a prepubescent boy to be retractable. Hormones are what loosen the foreskin in order to retract. Some men never retract and that's normal too. Has it...
