I felt similarly to you when I switched to an HBAC for my pregnancy before this one, at 26w, and chose hb in order to have *the* most supportive (while still safe) environment to achieve a VBAC,...

Sounded like a great birth (though hard). It reminded me of my first homebirth when I also got a monster contraction where I felt the baby move down. It was very weird!! That was a quick labor like...

That's great you've gotten your body temp up. I'd keep up with the higher amount of quality carbs, with fat. That usually equates to weight gain for me. Had you read about carbs and body temp (like...
