I spent the weekend with two of my best friends- one was at DS's birth so she knows the drill, the other will be at this birth and knows nothing about pregnancy/birth. She was so interested though,...

Starting to feel sort of panicky about the test. I've upped my probiotics but that's about it- I get tested on Thur so I doubt there's much use in taking more extreme measures this close to the...

I've always had some of the same worries @researchparent and @hopefullymama. And unfortunately, I've found that they don't go away once the baby is born, at least for me. I remember holding DS when...

Another vote here for getting a hotel room or staying with friends-- either around your due date or at the very first sign/suspicion of labor. My first birth went much faster than I expected- 3...

So well put @ladyelms! I think we can respect and appreciate birth, even if we don't enjoy it.

I actually love giving birth- I'm strangely excited about it, despite the fact that I *know* it will...

I've been lusting after a Sakura Bloom sling @onetwoten - what color did you get? And @ecnarwold, that wrap is gorgeous! It reminds me of the rebozo that I used with my first, which I stupidly gave...

Congratulations @jessdiamonds!! How special to be the first baby born to this DDC. And how wild that the baby came on the date you dreamed about so many months ago. I tend to be pretty skeptical...

Juicy fruit (watermelon, pineapple, peaches), clear juice, and coconut water are really the only things that appeal to me in labor. And even then, I ended up throwing up the honeydew I ate last...

Mine popped around 6 months. It definitely shows when I wear tighter shirts, which looks a little funny. And it's so sensitive!! DH knows to get nowhere near it when rubbing my belly....

I think my midwife can legally do homebirths after 37 weeks, but I feel like her timeline on the other side is more restrictive-- like 40 weeks plus 10 days? (I guess that's only 4 days shy of 42...
