Praise God, my baby is healthy! They did induce me at 37 wks. because the amniotic fluid was slightly too low. They induced 2 others the same day for the same reason. After delivering a baby who weighed much less than my other two, I'm wondering if this was necessary. Any feedback would be appreciated, especially from medical professionals.View Thread
Thank you for your encouraging information! I do have a couple of questions, if you don't mind: I was wondering if you had your tubal postpartum, and if so, did it interfere with breastfeeding? I was also wondering how old you are. I plan to ask the doctor to remove the whole tubes & burn the ends like you suggested. Hopefully, my Medicaid will pay for it!View Thread
I'm 42 & planning to have a tubal ligation after the birth of my 3rd child in April. I am insisting on general anesthesia because I don't want the risks of a spinal. How has this surgery worked out for others. I have heard only good comments except for one. Thanks for your input.View Thread
Good 4 U! My other two children are 14 & 17. I did have a very early miscarriage last year, but the baby girl I'm carrying now seems to be doing fine. (She moves so much she keeps me awake at night!) She is due on April 19th.View Thread
Thank you for sharing, You may be sparing someone the grief that you suffered. I am sorry for your loss & pray all goes well with this pregnancy. Please let me know when your baby arrives. My girl is due on April 19th & I am so excited and so tired of being pregnant!!View Thread
Nice 2 meet U, aquamareen! I turned 42 on July 1st, and my baby girl is due on April 19th. The only testing I had done on the baby was an ultrasound, and everything looked & measured fine. I didn't do the other tests because they pose risks to the baby. Do U have your prenatal vitamins yet?View Thread
