One of my older cousins was 'that' mom and she barely spent any time with her kids as she was always making herself look perfect to others.
My mom looked creative as she made a lot of my doll stuff but really it was a fiscal matter. They didn't have the money to spend on doll clothing and accessories for me so she would make them out of scraps.View Thread
I was hoping and praying for one as DH and I are both Irish and have red hair so I thought it would be fitting... but apparently it is not in the cards for us today. Of course after the day I have had I bet baby doesn't want to come out for another year or two... *sigh*View Thread
I really do agree with the other posts. You went into labor naturally at 41 weeks last time and I think you should give it until then this time. As excited as you are, I think unless there is a health concern for you or the baby then you should let your body do it's thing.View Thread
-What are your practice hours? -Do you have on-call/after hours service in case I have a question when you are closed or do you recommend I take my child to the ER/Urgent care if I need after hours physician? -Do you have appointment slots set aside each day for urgent visits? -Do you visit your own patients in the hospital or use a pediatric hospitalist? -Do you have more then one practice location? -Do you share on-call/after hours with more then one practice? -Do you have access to medical records during on-call/after hours? -Which hospitals do you have privileges at? Do you have a preference of hospitals? -Do you have xray/lab services on site or will I have to take my child to a hospital or outpatient lab/xray?
The doctor will not know billing questions, before you leave ask for the phone number for billing or to speak to whomever does the billing for the office. They would be able to answer your insurance questions and payment of services.
I had mine sort of done today as well. I have had dull achy cramping and also some sharper cramping every 15 minutes or so. I am hoping it is leading to something more. I have heard it works and some people it doesn't work for. I say it was sort of done because I was only a fingertip dialated so she couldn't really do it well. She is having me come back on Friday to see if I dialated more and if I have she will do it again.View Thread
So my Dad called and he said the best words in the world to me:
I don't want to alarm you but I think we lost your mother in law...
She had been following them and they pulled up at the Casino and couldn't find her. Well I gave him her phone number and a minute later she was there - apparently she got stuck at the light. I have to say though for a few minutes I kinda hoped she had gotten home sick and just drove home... LOLView Thread
