    Thank you all so much! The delivery was tough - because I have a fused spine, they could not place an epidural. Everyone had assured me they would be able to and it wouldn't be a problem, then I go...

    I just gave birth on Thanksgiving day and my opinion is you're definitely way over-thinking it. What matters is having a safe, healthy, happy pregnancy and baby. :-)

    Has anyone given Squaw Vine a try? My doula mentioned it and she seems to think it's 100% effective at inducing labor. She told me to stay away from it before 37 weeks. But then she also admitted...

    Highly recommend the OPK's too! They take a TON of guesswork out of it and make life much easier. Most women here will recommend the WondFo brand but I didn't like them, they were just as confusing...

    I just want to second everything the pp loisvs said, that's some very wise advice! The girls themselves will probably get a kick out of it and I think family harmony trumps the "stealing" factor.
