Your window to repair a tear after the birth is about 4-6 hours, just FYI.

A third degree is very unlikely to heal properly without suturing, and these repairs also take longer, so I wouldn't...

We got from 10pm-4:30am here last night. Hoping I didn't just jinx it.

YAY for slightly better sleep! E slept from 10pm until 5am, nursed, and slept until 7:30. 10pm to 5am is TOTALLY sleeping through the night by almost anyone's definition. Unfortunately, I didn't go...

Some MWs are counting on being baby's practitioner during the first few weeks, too, and so when they do your checkups they are looking at the both of you. This is different from most hospital based...

We started early over here too. DD1 was an oops when I was 19, the rest were highly planned. There was a HUGE difference between being pregnant at 19 and being pregnant at 30 in terms of how much it...

I got distracted and sewed a dress instead. I freehanded it and WAY screwed up the size - it's for like an 8lb baby, not my 16lb gigantic one.

The baby woke up, pooped on me, got a sink bath, and...
