Hello ladies, This is my 3rd pregnancy, and I was just asked if I would like to try a VBAC for this pregnancy. I had my first daughter vaginally, and then had to have a c-section with my 2nd daughter two years ago. My question is, have any previous mamas had this experience? What is your opinion on it? Right now I'm on the fence. While I like the short recovery time with having the baby naturally, I'm kind of frightened by trying to do this after having to end up having a c-section last time. Any advice is welcomed.

With my first pregnancy I found out way too early. They did a transvaginal u/s and there was nothing, not even an amniotic sac. They had me come in two weeks later, I think I was 8 or 9 weeks at the time, and there are a sac, yolk, or whatever it was called. I now have my 4 year old daughter. I think you should just relax and wait to see. Don't worry too much as it could be that it's just really early, like the previous posts have stated.View Thread
Hi Ashley! I am 6 weeks, going on 7 weeks. This is baby number 3 for us, hoping for a boy this time! I have morning and night sickness, but thankfully not all day like the last two! Very tired this pregnancy, and I get really light headed easily. Can't wait for my first ultrasound in two weeks!View Thread
Hi Ladies, So, I just came down with my first cold since finding out I was pregnant last week. I had read on Pinterest about a DIY Vick's Shower Disk where it will help to de-clog your sinuses. Only problem is that it uses Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Lavender Essential Oils. Has anyone used any of these before? I heard to stay away from Rosemary as it can cause contractions or something, but thought maybe one of you would have more information? Thanks!View Thread
Hello ladies! I just took 3 (yes) PT two days ago and all came out positive! I was wondering, are there any mamas-to-be, or current mamas that are from Bakersfield, CA who can recommend a good OB/GYN? I switched from the OB that I had with my first to a different one for my second. I like the one I have, but he is just soooooo booked lately and the wait time is FOREVER! Approx. 1-2 hours to even be seen. Any help would be appreciated!

I've been having really bad nausea too. I found that peppermint tea, or any tea with mint in it (which is usually decaf) really helps. Gingerale helped me for a while until I drank it so much that I literally got sick off of it. I read up on caffeine and it is ok in moderation (no more than 12oz of soda or something) and have found that having a soda or some black tea helps with the headaches that have accompanied this pregnancy. Gingersnaps I hear are really helpful as well.View Thread
I had my first ultrasound with this pregnancy when I was 7 weeks along. I was able to hear the heartbeat then. I have an appointment this Tuesday for my 12 week appointment and can't wait to hear my little one's heartbeat again!View Thread
So, since I have been suffering from nausea really badly this pregnancy, almost anything I eat has me soon retching in the bathroom. I was wondering, do any of you have any breakfast ideas? What do you usually eat? I have been having a hard time figuring out what I want to eat and cereal just hasn't been sounding very appetizing.View Thread
