I started out with Sonlight, but it ended up not being a very good fit for us. Taking a more eclectic approach works well for our family. I really love a lot of things about Charlotte Mason so I try...

This was our third, but not our last. We don't have a set limit, and we're just taking everything one child at a time. I'm only 27, so I feel like I still have quite a few child-bearing years ahead...

Oh Cerise--many, many tears of sorrow are being shed for you and your family. I felt literal pain when I read about your sweet angel Mateo. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

BPP stands for Bio-physical profile--the u/s where they look at the fluid levels and all that jazz. It'll be my first time ever doing one of those so I have no idea what to expect! Hopefully I won't...

Sounds to me like you've been on your feet a bit too much today. Remember that you basically have a scab inside your uterus where the placenta was attached. If you are "over doing it" then it's like...
