Thanks, friends. I think my feelings were amplified this week being with Josh's family, whom we haven't seen since I've been pregnant and with whom I've barely communicated. They probably figured I...

Yaliina, Pascal has chronic ear infections though. He gets them at least twice a year, and they rupture. This time I tried to wait it out without the abx and it ruptured internally (didn't drain out,...

Look into futon mattresses stuffed with wool or cotton. We have one (queen). It was $199. Not organic. The thing is a futon mattress simply means no springs.

Your computer itself can probably take a picture. Why not find that out? My computer has Photo Booth. I don't rely on it (I am a photographer) but I have used it.

My dad had the flu when we had our Welcome to the World party for Pascal. I was really grateful that they didn't come, even though it was sad. Sadder to have catastrophic effects on tiny humans.

Oh, that's sad. Sorry for your dad, plus not able to be together this year. It was really good of them to test and call you, though. I hope he gets better soon. This makes me wonder if my midwives...

Let me share my experience with you. And say I FEEL FOR YOU! My in-laws, though improving, are hard for me to have in my home.

That's great that they encourage you to write plans and read them. I found that I wrote one plan for myself, very ideal and specific, and one for my midwives, pretty much a few bulleted points. I...

I wasn't measured quite that early, myself. Though it's totally normal to measure that early, my midwives don't start until the 3rd trimester.

Sorry you're worried Yaliina. Sounds like you have some good care, and I think that measurements are a little arbitrary anyway. But of course, when it's one thing after another, it can feel like a...

I hear you. But you do not have to get those vaccines if you don't want to, and they really won't bat an eye (or at least, not in my experience.) I do get the pertussis one because it means I don't...
