Water birth is great for reducing tearing, but since that's not an option I'm guessing...I agree that you can talk to them about positioning for pushing. Your body is very smart, and is probably...

I'm 27, and will be 28 when this baby is born. This is my second baby. I feel totally normal age wise. I think there are advantages to kids when you're younger and when you're older. This is what...

I don't think that's TOO abnormal. I think at that point in my first pregnancy I had only felt things that I wasn't sure was the baby or not, nothing definite. And this time I'm 18.5 weeks and I...

Tonight I had a raw oyster, which I'm sure must be a no no, and I thought of this thread while doing it. Haha. I've wanted to try them, and we went to a nice seafood place because my FIL is leaving...

I put very little stock into the whole pregnancy no-nos, at least as far as food goes. I eat the same way when pregnant as when I'm not. I agree it's a moderation in all things issue. I don't...

I am! We're doing pretty well. At first it was absurdly painful (at least as bad as the very beginning of nursing), but it's getting easier. I was worried that my milk would dry up but so far so...

Wow, some of you had some intense experiences! My daughter was born in the water (after 8-9 hours of labor, 1.5 pushing?) and she came up to my chest and we relaxed in the tub. I offered her my...

I think that form would be useful if you don't leave every option in your final copy but use it as a basis for your choices. So the actual item will read 'during pushing I would like ____', not the...

That sounds to me like it's not super fresh blood, which is a good sign. I'd still say for your own comfort it's worth it to call or maybe go in for a Doppler check. And of course keep an eye on it...

Is it bright red or dark brownish stuff? Bright red is fresh blood, darker is old and generally not a problem if it's just a little, which yours was. Either way don't freak out, but call your...

I feel somewhat similarly. I know that I'm pregnant, but I haven't accepted it yet, or it's not reality. I think for me that comes when I feel the baby move. Though I also haven't had an appointment...

Absolutely I'd go. It's not a bad idea to have a backup plan--refundable tickets or something? But almost definitely you'd be fine. If there were a reason not to go, I think you'd know before....
