yeah I like how they sent me a bunch of brochures and none include a price. I figured it would be expensive and out of our price range I just wasn't sure if it was something a lot of people are doing now these days. I don't know though to me its like getting insurance on your baby if it's born with a defect it could be fixed. There wasn't anything like this when I was young. Looking at the brochures though there really isn't any kind of major health problems that run in either of our families and the things it could be useful for like brain injuries are still being studied. So I think we are not going to save. Thanks for you opinion.View Thread
Thanks! Im not on stricked bed rest thankfully I just cant do any house chores or anything. I had a disappearing twin so the doctor has said from the beginning that I will deliver early he's just trying to stall this baby as long as possible. I do drink lots of water and juice and the only urine test I get done is the usual for protein and sugar. As far as contractions I will ask my doc when I see her tomorow about laying on my side but for the most part I dont feel them as often as I was now that I have been resting however my high risk doc always asks how Im dealing with them at home because according to non stress test Im contracting a lot but I hardly feel those contractions. Is that weird? I definantly feel real bad ones every now and then but not constant ones.View Thread
I am 33 wks and 3 days with my first and have been put on bed rest due to my cervix thinning already and contractions showing up on my non stress test. The doc didnt say how much I am contracting just that I had to be on bed rest because my son may come earlier than expected. I have been having mild cramps for a few weeks now which the docs say is normal towards the end but they are starting to get more sever sometimes followed by a contraction. The contractions arent consistent enough to worry about early labor but the cramps are getting worse. Is this normal? They feel like really bad period cramps and usually start when I lay down which is often since I am on bed rest. Another thing is I constantly have to pee like even rite after I go I have to go again and usually its a little more than I think I should be peeing after I have just emptied my bladder. Is that normal as well?View Thread
That's what I thought with clothes being transfered and tried on and handled. And thanks for the detergent tip I have sensitive skin as it is so I will definitely use an extra rinse cycle just to be sure. ThanksView Thread
So I am getting everything in my baby's room ready and I was wondering if I should wash all his new clothes before he wears them. The only reason I ask this is because among all the clothes I was given from my sister in law some that her son never wore still had the tags on them. I don't mind doing laundry, I actually just bought laundry soap for babies, I just wanted to know what everyone's thought was on this.View Thread
check this website out it has a bunch of stuff you can try I too have developed the PUPPS rash just recently and it is spreading like crazy. A few things I did find that helps is Ivarest soap which is for poison ivy but it relieves the itch for a few hours another thing is Sarna lotion which I use after my shower and I am itch free for a little bit. Also I read that vegetable juice like V8 and V8 fruit and veggie juice helps too I just started drinking that but I guess it helps flush out the rash toxins in your body. Good luck and I totally feel for you. My dr. says theres really nothing they can do especially being only 28 weeks cuz the only true cure for PUPPS is to have the baby. http://oda.com/2009/04/12/puppp-relief/View Thread
Aww that's exciting I wanted this one to be a surpris but my husband's grandparents really wanted to know if there was gonna be a grandson to carry on the family name so we figured we wouldn't make them wait. When we have a second baby I think we will keep it a surprise.View Thread
