I'm in your same situation and have no idea what to do. We didn't find out with our first because I really wanted a boy and thought I would handle the disappointment better at birth. She was a girl...

I've been quiet lately due to just life craziness, but I've been trying to follow along.

My post was not meant to make you feel bad at all. I think you got some weird advice at the ER, that's all. I take Tylenol maybe once a year and it has never made me drowsy and nor does it have any...

That's really common, from what I understand. I weaned my daughter at 17 months when I was pregnant with the baby we lost to miscarriage. By 9 weeks I was pretty uncomfortable and during the long...

I'm so so sorry. How terrifying, even if everything is totally fine. I'm hoping and praying for you that the test was a false positive and that the amnio comes back clear.

Cold compresses and washcloths on the forehead and back of the neck, cold baths if the fever is high. If the fever is over 102 though, Tylenol is much safer than the risks to the baby of having a...
