Underweight 13 Month Old, I Did Have IUGR During Pregnancy.

I have a beautiful 13 month old baby girl. The only concern that I have is that she is very small in size for her age. She's only 13 and a half pounds. Height wise she's doing great, but it just makes her look even that much thinner. I was diagnosed with IUGR (interuterine growth restriction) during my pregnancy and was put on bed rest and saw a high risk doctor the last two months. She was born full term (38 wks buy trying to induce me although I still ended up with a c-section) at 4 lbs 12 oz. She's always been breastfed. She does...

Survey: Hospital Birth Versus Home Birth??

Did you hear? A young, Australian woman who lobbied for more support for home births has died after delivering her baby daughter at home. She was rushed to the ER in cardiac arrest. Women and babies can die in both places due to unforeseen labor and delivery complications It's a known fact that things can change in a blink of an eye for a mom giving birth. This is just a survey and in no way intended to start a ruckus here...I would love to hear your stories...I'll tell you mine in the SWH... Have you delivered at home? In a...

Not Happy in Relationship

I'm a first time mom of a 9 month old little girl, who pretty much makes my world go round. Her father and I have been dating for about 3 years now,we met at a not so pretty phase in my life (I was 22,lots of partying we'll say). About a year into relationship I got pregnant (of course a surprise) which was when of course my lifestyle at the time came to a screeching hault. Which honestly was the best thing for me because I had turned into someone I was not. Our relationship has a not so happy past and I harbor so much resentment because...

Good Pregnancy Books

Hello. My Sister-in-law (hubby's bro's wife) just announced she is pregnant. She is about 12 weeks. She asked me for reccommendations on Pregnancy books. I mostly used the internet and scanned one book I had borrowed from a friend, but can't remember what it was. I did read Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs buts thats mostly entertainment. I told her I would check it out for her. I am pretty much the only one she knows with kids. I gave her some baby internet sites but she still really wants a book. So, what are the best books? Any...

Pregnancy Complications and Wants to Have Another Baby

I had very serious complications after my 3rd pregnancy. I had a 6 hour c-section and went into DIC and then had blood clots in my lungs. This is the first child for my husband. We really want more children. I am not sure if I should have another child. Any opinions or stories of your own complicated deliveries are greatly appriciated. I am not really looking for advice more than positive outcomes from other people. I am going to have a doctors opinion before I make a decision.

EPT Or Clear Blue Digital?

Ok, ladies. I know many of you don't like "am I pregnant" questions, but I need your opinion about tests. We have been TTC for a few months, and today I took a First Response and got a faint positive. I have read that there's really no such thing as a false positive, so I think it probably counts, but I took the test in the middle of the afternoon because I am so excited and couldn't wait any longer! My hubby is not so sure it means a positive, so we went out and bought Clear Blue digital and EPT early result tests. I am going to take...
