Sciatica and Pregnancy

I am 28 weeks pregnant and have been suffering with sciatic pain for about the last 2 months. I have been doing physical therapy and recently started with a chiropractor, who is going to have me start wearing a tens machine. ( it didn't work!) My OB will not let me have anything for pain until we see how the tens machine works. (They finally prescribed darvocet which still isn't helping so there is really no point in taking it!) I feel like I am losing it! I have never been in this much chronic pain in my life! It is getting worse and...

Two Middle Names?

My husband is the fourth, and I've gotten by not naming our first two sons after him, but he is really pushing for this last one because it probably will be our last child. I just really don't like the name at all. He wants to give him a name that we both agree on for his first name, and then use my husband's first and middle name as our sons middle name, thus giving him two middle names. So if we named our son John, and my husbands name is Billy Bob, It would be John Billy Bob Smith. I was just wondering if any of you have children...

Best Baby Shower Gift You Received

I am invited to a baby shower for a woman who's first child goes to school and after-school care with my own children. Her first son is six and she is pregnant again with another boy. I've been to their house a couple of times and they seem to be the type that could go out and buy anything they wanted or needed at anytime - where as we're living paycheck to paycheck and still trying to make ends meet. So my question is, what can I buy her or make for her that wouldn't look too cheap and would be something that she would want to brag...

Mother in Law Demanding to Be in Delivery Room During Baby's Birth

Hi fellow mommas! This is a 2 part question, so here it goes: I am expecting baby #3 right before Thanksgiving. My in laws have never really been involved in our kids' lives by their choice. They always make the excuses that they are too busy or can't afford to make the 350 mile trek. I recently called my mother in law and she casually told me that she has already requested the time off from work to be here for baby's birth, Thanksgiving, and 2 weeks afterwords. She also said that she was not going to miss the birth of this baby, and that...

Why Always TWO Children? What's Wrong with Just One???

I'm a first time mom at age 44. I never thought I'd have children b/c of my age and then....Mr. Wonderful showed up! My little man is now 14 months old. I can't tell you how many times I've been asked when I'm going to have a little girl. When I respond with, "I'm an older mom to begin with and I just don't think it will happen". The respond that I often get is, "Only children have real issues". We didn't have any problems getting pregnant at all and, I didn't have any issues, whatsoever during my pregnancy. However, towards the end...
