I think Old Navy carries long sizes. Last time I had a pair of long Gap jeans that I paid too much for, but I never wore them because they didn't stay up. There is a local store that sells used...

I guess the hospital and insurance companies are technically separate entities and money must have been transferred, but I'm sure the accounting is somewhat different than when a hospital bills an...

Well, I'm American and paid absolutely nothing for my hospital birth, or any of my numerous prenatal appointments. I never had to see a bill for anything. I had a good Kaiser plan.

Sorry about your mom's insensitive reaction, belltree. I think it's cruel to expect us to keep what we are going through a secret, just so other people don't have to hear sad news. This time I have...

You're right that there is nothing you can do to change the outcome, so it doesn't accomplish anything to have ultrasounds. But not knowing drives me crazy. The more information I have the better, so...

I am paranoid about fading symptoms too. I feel really crappy almost all the time, but if there is a moment that I feel somewhat OK, I start to think that I'm no longer pregnant. But would the...

belltree, you are totally right about intuition being less reliable when you are more emotional. And I am protecting myself by anticipating the worst. I do think it helps me if something goes wrong....

Yeah, I'm thinking that it's better than 50% chance that this baby will stick around, but I don't feel lucky. I left there thinking that we had seen a strong enough heartbeat that my risk of...

Ultrasound looked good! There was a heartbeat. Now I can relax until the NT scan. We had bad news last time at the NT scan, so until we get past that, I'm on edge.

It turns out my husband couldn't...

Hungry + nauseous is such a fun combination! I haven't thrown up, but my stomach feels off 24 hours a day. On the bright side, giving up alcohol has been easy. (I was a daily drinker.) I couldn't...

Thank god the baby is ok! I can't believe in this day and age they are taking babies away from their mothers against their will. I thought nurseries were a thing of the past!
