Pregnancy and Swine Flu

Hi Moms, I am freaking out and need some advice.....I am a teacher in a school who has AT LEAST 2 confirmed cases of Swine Flu. My issue is I am 7 months pregnant, can't find a vaccine anywhere to save my life, AND...I work in a modular unit with only 4 classrooms, and that is where the kids have it are. So, my work told me about the situation and then left it up to me. The doctor says to take a few days off, which I did. But, now the situation is not getting better...more kids in the modulars are out, and I have no way of knowing if...

Cloth Diapers at Night?

My son will be 6 months at the end of the month and I've switched him over to cloth diapers now that he eating some solid foods. I had trouble with my first son in cloth diapers during the breastfeeding poops because they would leak all over, so I decided to wait. Everything is going very well, but I'm having some trouble at night. He doesn't sleep through the night yet, but he has been doing pretty well about only waking up about 2 times. The past couple nights, he's been waking a lot more than that, maybe 6 or 7 times. I think it's...

Possible Sinus Infection During Pregnancy

Hi everyone, I'm hoping we have a nurse or doctor lurking around here. My OB's office is closed on the weekends and only takes emergencies on weekend calls. I'm 15 weeks pregnant and what has started out as a nasty cold may have developed into a sinus infection. The pain and pressure in my face is getting worse every day and becoming unbearable. Does anyone know what OTC medications other than sudefed and tylenol will help with this that I can take? I know that sinus infections are typically treated with antibiotics but there isn't much I...

Bedtime a Fight with 2 1/2 Yrs.

It seems to be getting worse…..we have been working on getting her to bed earlier for the past 3 or 4 weeks (after reading for my younger son sleep needs, hours needed, sleep schedules etc.) we start at 8ish but she still fights it until finally 10pm she falls asleep. I have created a routine of PJ’s, 2 books and prayers to prep her for bed but she gets up several times before finally staying down and going to sleep. You would think that going to sleep at 10pm would make her sleep later but still, 8AM she is up. My concern is not...
