Getting a retest was a good idea. Cranberry juice won't treat an infection if you already have it, it is a preventative but not a treatment. A diet high in prebiotics will help to support the good...

Showing interest in parents eating is not a sign of readiness. Babies are interested in everything we do.

Converting boys clothes to girls is definitely easier than the other way around. I would just add trims such as pockets, appliqués or ruffles in girly fabric. Or add lace or ribbon or buttons.

Sounds like it could be some forewaters you're feeling. If you're at full term it's probably not an issue. Is the baby's head well down? The risk, with a high head, is that when your waters break the...
