Consider the weight on your pelvic floor. I always get a lot of BH, pain, and pressure on days that I am running and gunning. I too suggest lots of water and rest.

My mom had a mini-stroke last week, so I came out to Florida to stay with her for the week. (She's doing great!) My dh kept my 2.5yo at home (for the first time). Interestingly enough,...

If it's diet controlled you should be able to birth at home.

Run your hand under warm water before you prick your finger. That should help.

I think it's weird but only in the current CPS-crazy climate.

I could easily trust my 8yo to care for my 2.5yo while home alone. I don't, but I could. He's responsible, capable, and caring. I...

On a more positive note, I found some pajamas for the hospital at Sam's Club - $13/set. Woot! My niece sent me a box of newborn girl's clothes, so I can set aside a few things for the hospital bag.

My doc admits the numbers are arbitrary and, as such, is quite generous. <105 fasting and <140 at two hours. He said don't even bother with a one hour reading.

Gained two pounds on Tuesday. Dr's happy, and I think that's a total of maybe five pounds.

Candicemmm, your dr's practice sounds good. I hate it when drs freak out over post-dates!

You said you'd tried diet ... did you follow the recommended GD diet? IMO, it has way too many carbs. Meat, cheese, eggs, and low carb veggies might be enough to control it, IDK. A lot of dieticians...

YW! I love it and use it all the time. If I need an antibiotic or antiviral and am out of orange juice, I take Olive Leaf Extract tablets. They work great, too!
