I desperately want this post-partum period to be different from my last. A test for C reactive protein came back high before we left the hospital and my daughter ended up in the special care nursery...

I'm not sure my daughter understands what's going on, really. She just turned two. She points to her belly when I ask her where the baby is and is very interested in pointing out the toys and...

I actually started a "Minimalist August" with my last DDC this month (we're still very close via Facebook) to try to get some inspiration to clear out junk. I reduced my closet by half and got...

My last DDC had a Ruby too! Love the name.

I also totally love Petra, Chapsie. I was debating stealing it (sharing it?), but we'd have too many "P" names. It's a great name.

I really like...

Thanks! That's pretty much my thought. I wouldn't do anything like induction or anything anyway. I guess I was just thinking that the GD test is coming up in a few weeks and was connecting the two...

Xerxella, I've followed your story a bit from afar and just want to say how much I'm hoping your babes stay put. If not both babies, at least one. Here's hoping the next few weeks to viability fly...

Measuring ahead?

Am I correct in thinking that if there's no evidence of extra fluid or that baby is extra large there's no real concern about measuring ahead? I measured at 28 weeks today (at 25 weeks) but had a...

We had the follow up to my anatomy scan today at 25 weeks. They ruled out any partial previa, which they were concerned about last time and the bean is healthy and kicking. I'm measuring 28 weeks...

Ugh, not really. We're still with Ripley Burnett for a boy, but the only name we have for a girl is also Ripley (it's a family name) and I just don't love it for a girl. I like Scout, but my...

I wouldn't worry at all. There will always be one person who complains about a practitioner because that's life. You don't always get exactly what you want. I might use that (not mentioning that...

I like it. I think of it more initially as a boy's name. My initial reaction was negative, but the more I said it, the more I liked it, so I think it will be a name that grows on people.

I was kind of a "why me" person after my miscarriage, but then I realized I was insufferable and got over it.

I hope today went well and that you're resting comfortably. I assume you're at the...

I'm glad the blood looks older and your fluid levels are so far ok. I'm hoping with Chapsie that all these are good signs.

I don't know if my opinion even matters, since I'm not a NICU person...
