I've been getting the "are you sure there's only one in there?" and other assorted comments. So annoying. I have no torso, so this kid has only one place to go, and that's out. And the baby is...

Great news about the weight! Not so great about the bleeding. I can see how frustrating that would be, for it to keep happening and just constantly be on edge. I would be secretly hoping to go...

NaturallyMo, I didn't fast before the 1 hour either because my midwife said it wouldn't matter, but that I should avoid excess carbs and sugars. It sounds to me like you do have GD, given your...

At 14 days past ovulation, you should get a positive pregnancy test, so that's the best way to find out. I never have any symptoms at all other than increased cervical mucus until I'm almost 6 weeks...

Yay for head down! Let's hope she stays that way.

I have not been praying, so I won't start, just in case I jinx it. But I'll send positive thoughts for staying head down and for both of us...

There was meconium in the waters and they suctioned her, perhaps a little too aggressively? We'll never really know. But they did additional testing the day after birth and her c-reactive protein...
