My friend (who's due in early Oct.) just found out the baby is breech. The dr. said at this point, the chance of him turning on his own is less than 6%. They're going to recheck his position in 2 weeks and discuss either manual movement or c-section. In the meantime, she's going to try yoga and acupuncture. Any tips or experiences you can share? Thanks!

Group B Strep

This is my third pregnancy (I'm 8 weeks) and I just found out I have group B strep. I guess the lab found it in my urine sample. I'm a little freaked out. I'm not sure how I got it, I didn't have it with my first two children. The doctor put me on antibiotics, but is this enough? Everything I have read on the internet is not good about delivery with group B strep. Has anyone else had a successful delivery with the group B strep? I found plenty about what happens to the infant, but what will happen to me? Will I always have this? ...

Information on Pre-term Labor the Second Time Around

We are in the process of thinking about having another child. With my son I went into pre-term labor at 28 weeks. Since he was fine they left him but for 10 weeks it was several trips to the hospital, sometimes a couple of times a week, to get shots to stall off labor. My son was finally born at 38 weeks and he was healthy! After several tests my Dr. did not know why my body went into labor so early. I was wondering if any of you were able to have a "normal" pregnancy after going into pre-term labor with a previous child?
