Anna - Thanks for the update on Leila!

Leila - Hope you and the boys are doing great! Can't wait to hear your birth story.

Jennifer, Lorien & Liz - I added you all to the front page.

Lorien - I wasn't sure if you were finding out the gender or not but let me know if you're going to be on the green team and I'll change the ticker background.

Waving *HI* to everyone else!

Mari- Your new doctor sounds great!! I'm glad you got a better one then last time.

Jenny- Yay for your carseat being purchased:)

Katja: That is so nice that you are feeling the baby kick now!

Jennifer- We actually have the same due date! :) Although this time I am going to do everything in my power (mainly just herbs) to induce around 38/39 weeks if the baby looks to be as big. I'm guessing it won't work and I will deliver again at 41 weeks but it won't keep me from trying LOL.


AFM:Still feeling sick hoping to hit the end of that this week. Starting to show a little but if you didn't know me you would probably just think I was a bit chubby in the stomach area.I'm going to start interviewing midwives for the birth and aftercare this week. Don't really feel like it but I know if I want to be able to choose that I have to start looking soon before the good ones get booked up.

Wow Mari I can't believe your doc said that epi's save him time, I guess I never thought of that.

HI girls!!

I'll be a bad poster today, but I don't have time for personals. Next time I promise!

I had my last monthy OB appt. on friday. Form now on, it's weekly appts!!! Eeek!!

Everything looked great. My blood pressure was fine, on the low side. I gained another kg. since last appt. but no more 3kg jumps! (yay for me and DH's support on that!) The baby is definitely head down, and my bloating is within normal limits.

I got prescriptions for the Strept B smear (wich I am really anxious about, since that *could* have been the cause of Fede's illness when he was a new born). And also for a vaccine I had long overdue.

Another good piece of news is that I had a long discussion with the dr. about the two "epis" (epidural and episiotomy). So although he does both, it's not on a regular basis like my previous OB. He was very honest about epidurals, saying it is more convenient for him because it saves him time in case of emergencies, but he was totally cool about me trying a natural birth. As for the episiotomy, he agrees that my last one was a bad call, and promised to do everything to avoid it this time (unless I need forceps or something weird like that) So I am relieved and a lot more confident about this L&D.

Quick update on Leila: she was supposed to be induced on Wed 8th Feb due to pre-eclampsia; but then she already had the boys on Tues 7th! Looks like the boys are doing well. I haven't really got more info, those were just a few sparse posts and comments on her FB wall. I'm as excited as everyone here to see/hear more!
