  • Make your mom keep your inlaws out.  That's pretty much my plan.  My mother REFUSES to come to the delivery room and is totally old-school in believing no one but the father should be in there.  She'll have no problem keeping other people out.  Als…
  • The unbearable pelvic pain.  I feel fine otherwise, but the pelvic pain is just god awful.  I can't lay down at all, so I'm pretty much stuck sleeping in a recliner, at least half the night.  If I walk or sit I feel fine....it's standing and laying …
  • I found out I was having twins at 5w4d US...pretty early.  I didn't have elevated HCG levels, and they barely doubled in 3 days. I didn't have any morning sickness.  I have been from the beginning, and still am, smaller (bump wise) then my pregnant …
  • I'm having an elective C- Section (both babies are  breech, but in the off chance they turn, I'm still having a C-Section anyway) and my OB told me she would not do a scheduled C Section before 38 weeks.  Now, if they try to come out before then or …
  • 3d 4d is really just for enjoyment purposes.  If it's making you nervous, don't do it.  I had one....and Baby A looked like the elephant man it it.  She always presses her face into the membrane (like when you were a kid and you'd stretch seran wrap…
  • a)  You're obviously not OKAY with it, if you are, you wouldn't be worked up over stupid invitations. Stop trying to kid yourself. b) If they ordered them online, they could have been misled on the color.  Or, they could have just though they were …
  • KandT0919: Dont take this as rude but I wish my husband, a soldier, had missed the pregnancy instead of my daughter's entire first year of life. The baby being here is way better to have him around!!! I'm now pregnant again. My husband left when I …
  • I'm team purple, and have always wanted to know.  But, I had a sonographer once who called them both "he" and then quickly said "I can't see anything, so I don't know what they are!  I have two sons so I call all babies 'he'."  I think your safe...p…
  • You won't be able to differentiate heartbeats until at least 14 weeks or so.  My OB's and MFM's don't even bother trying with a doppler, never have, and likely never will since I'm 28 weeks now.
  • There is definitely no soft spot anywhere on my abdomen during these.  The closest soft spot is my now gargantuan breasts LOL.  We just moved and I just had my first appt with my new OB this week, and she didn't mention what to do abou
  • None of the MFM's here will see you without a referral from an OB.  But, I finally found one today at St. Vincents.  Sheesh!
  • 15 weeks....REALLY early...but we're moving 3000 miles when I'm 17 weeks sooooo....of course my friends want to do it before I leave.  I can't really expect them to travel, and with twins I won't be able to travel back 3000 miles in my 3rd tri for o…
  • Thank you SO much for all of these fantastic and detailed answers!  You ladies are so helpful!
  • Carnation77: Think business casual/cocktail attire.  Shirts and ties with jacket for men, dresses and skirts for women.  Do not wear anything overly sexy or revealing. This.  THINK CONSERVATIVE.  For pete's sake, do not wear knee boots.  Not wit…
  • CONGRATS! So excited for you!!!
  • It is worse when I've held it for a long time.  Sounds like my issue is my ovaries are still a little swollen and my uterus is a little larger then normal because....IT'S TWINS!
  • Had my first ultrasound - IT'S TWINS!  I'm 6w5d, and baby A and B both had strong heartbeats.   Yea....my RE's office is just full of idiots. 
  • My gf had a totally natural birth.  She's taken both hypnobirthing and Bradley.  She said hypnobirth was a complete waste and pointless, but she loved Bradley and found it very helpful.  
  • KdgTeacher: Exciting!  How far along? Just over 6 weeks.  I know it's not definite this early that they can measure it, but I'm still going to be sooooo sad if they can't.   
  • GhostMonkey: Audaciousarica: My first beta was 471.  I'll be finding out if it's twins tomorrow....my nurse seems pretty convinced it is.  Of course, one could have already vanished since my beta or the last time I Talked to her.  I'll let you kn…
  • My first beta was 471.  I'll be finding out if it's twins tomorrow....my nurse seems pretty convinced it is.  Of course, one could have already vanished since my beta or the last time I Talked to her.  I'll let you know    
  • I used to nanny and they had a diaper genie.  It was GREAT.  I could cram 30+ diapers in there (I don't really know that you're suppose to....but my lazy self would cram, cram, cram!) and it wouldn't smell at all.  If you only have one in diapers I …
  • I like starbursts.  I also read in a pregnancy book that smelling fresh cut lemon works - it definitely works for me.
  • katharine25: You can only ovulate once in a cycle.    Stop talking.  You absolutely can ovulate twice in a cycle.  In fact, my girlfriend ovulated 2x in a cycle and got pregnant both times.  Her kids were fraternal twins but conceived at di…
  • I'm 6 weeks and also sick.  EVERYONE around me is sick.  I never get sick but I'm sure being pregnant has made me susceptible.  It's awful. 
  • I always get rewards bucks from Toys R Us because I have a lot of baby showers and other babies in the family.  At this point, if I don't have anyone else to shop for, I'm going to start using the rewards bucks on my baby.  Letting them expire would…
  • I'm 6w3d and no where near needing bigger clothes. I can still fit into ask of my smallest clothes. I can't wear Jeans anymore because the stiff denim rubs on the injection sites of my pio and hurts like crazy.
  • fuzzylogic: Next time, poke her back and ask, "What's your excuse, then?"   YEP! Buy her an etiquette book for her birthday.  
  • My clinic only does two.  My first ultrasound is at 6w4d.
  • My RE gave me a strict, laid out diet for me.  I ate like 4k calories a day and still lost so much weight they had to revamp it.  When I switched RE's he basically told me to f - it.  I got KU on my first round of IVF so...*shrugs shoulders*
  • Ok.  My dad's a family lawyer, and you can sign away parental rights any time you like.  ANY TIME.  If your kid is ten and you decide you hate him, you can just sign away and make him a ward of the state.  BUT.  I sure as hell wouldn't get the fathe…
  • GL!!!  My first u/s in Monday and I have also been way more anxious then I was during the 2ww!  Does it ever end!?
  • YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! for both of you!
  • cinderin: what is your deductible?  aren't you going to meet it in 2013 anyway, with all of your appointments and the birth?   This.  And what is your copay for appointments?  I'd pay for another one.  But I just paid 10k for IVF so $200 f…
  • I'm sorry - I would find a new OB if mine said something like that to me.  We all know we already worry all the time anyway.  Worrying doesn't help.  Pregnancy and the threat of m/c is beyond our control - which we all know but can't not worry about…
  • If you're worried just heat it up to kill any bacteria.  You can always heat it to kill the bacteria and then rechill it to eat.  Just eat is as soon as it's cold again.
  • My #2 RE told me that femara and clomid have pretty much the same results, if they both work for you.  So, 1 could not work but the other could (usually clomid fails and femara works, not the other way) but if they both work you get basically the sa…
  • A quick ask of dr. google looks like *some* gum chewing during pregnancy is fine. Everything in moderation.
  • Ok a) sounds like she needs to take a breather and learn how to treat people respectfully!  b) I've actually read that it helps with morning sickness.  I suppose one thing they may not like about it is that it has sweetener in it - but not all Dr's …
  • YUP!!!! Suck on a chewy starburst (a veteran mom told me this - it works for me too).  Or smell a freshly cut lemon.  I read the lemon in a pregnancy book and it really does work.
