I don't have any links to info about it, but I'm quite certain stress can hinder or even halt labor altogether. I have a thing about IVs and when they tried to induce me I was doing great with the...

I ended up being transferred to the hospital at the last second and had to be in a gown, but I got a high-waisted dress off the clearance rack at Target. It was really soft, comfy, had a neckline I...

I go to the midwife for my one week checkup in a few hours. I'll find out my weight then, but I know I've lost ten pounds, at least, just from the weight of the baby. It's a nice thought.

How are you recovering?
So far, so good. Plenty of cramping as everything goes back to where it's supposed to be and very tender in certain places, but otherwise just tired and happy to be home.

It ended up being about 5 days of early labor, just sort of hanging out at 4cm and not going anywhere. Worked out well for me in the end though. Delivery took awhile, but active labor was less than...

How long has early labor lasted for you ladies?

I bought a super cheap knit tank top dress off the Target clearance rack. It's soft, comfortable and if it gets covered with stuff that won't wash out, I'm not that attached to it anyways.
