I would clarify what she means by "deliver your own uterus". If she means uterine inversion then history of prolapse is not a risk factor. If she means stage IV uterine prolapse (when the whole...

DD1 reminded me today that she wants some wide-legged trousers so I think that will be next. I'll just use my Dana-Made-It pattern and widen them on the fabric I think.

Will anyone even know? My oldest DD goes to a Steiner school and I have no idea whether most of the other families in her class watch TV or eat junk food.

Working backwards, an EDC of the 4th of Feb gives you a conception date of the 14th of May and and LMP of the 30th of April. Which would also have made you 6 weeks at the first visit.

I'm sorry you're having a hard time. I can certainly relate to being chased down by a 5yo all the time.

Can your parents have the kids for an afternoon, or even a couple of hours so you can talk...

I agree with Lturtle. My first thought was that, in their minds, to like/love/enjoy spending time with their dad's wife is a betrayal of their mother. And a reminder of their loss.

No, I don't think it's possible. Maybe in 5-10 years when the kids are able to help more and/or be more independent with their schoolwork, but not at the moment.

I would do one with legs. She is probably going to want to dress it and change its nappies :-)

Maybe look for a kit. Then you will have all the bits you need as well as instructions.

Does she wake up if you try to get up or does she just not want to fall asleep by herself?
