I really accellerated the pound-packing this last half of the third trimester, too. But my midwife still hasn't said anything about it (I'm at 37 weeks and have gained about 35 lbs. The only...

@tarynkay I've almost gained 35 pounds and people still give me the "you look small" comments. Don't worry about it, most people don't know what they're talking about and I've read that the amount...
This was an interesting article; it goes into detail about how the likelihood of successful pregnancy plummets...

I wouldn't hire an Alise over a Brittany but might find it a little odd if the doula used a pseudoname just for career purposes. There's nothing ouffputting or unusual or stereotypical about the...

My stepchildren are 17 months apart. The eldest was an "easy" baby. The second was not. My husband's first marriage sounds like it was always rocky, but he tells me that the stress of two small...
FYI to be eligible for FMLA (maternity leave) you do have to work for an employer for a year. You also must have worked a minimum of 1250 hours for that employer in the 12 months preceding leave,...

Had the glucose test, final blood draws, and Rhogam yesterday. I'm not sure what flavor the drink was, but it definitely wasn't orange. I don't usually drink soda and am not a big fan of it, so...

Saw you mention you hadn't decided on a name so I thought I'd point out my newest obsession (guilty pleasure?) for your consideration: Esmerine
I bet his reaction is related to what you said in another thread about the baby being due a week before his final exams and how you will be in the poorest financial situation you've yet encountered. ...
I like it as a first. Unique yet recognizable. Would pair well with many different middles.

I immediately thought of GoT, but I like it anyway. Jory could be another nice option.

I finally updated the list. A very belated welcome to the new moms! I didn't notice any new sex reveal announcements. Shout out if I missed something please!
My step kids are here and we just...
I'm not trying to be a jerk or naysayer or Debbie downer and believe you will do what's right for your situation. But I think my insight could be helpful.
I spent 9 years in college then another...

No LH doesn't spike due to implantation. I suppose in theory the Clear blue digital advanced tests might give a positive result due to increased estrogen, but the only reliable test are the ones...
Oh shoot I didn't see it was multiple choice! Add a vote in for Thaddeus
I used the mini-pill before pregnancy and plan to do the same postpartum as long as my milk supply is good.

I'll just throw my favorites/GPs at you:
(largely DH's vetoed list...)

We've been fairly set on Indigo since the sonographer first guessed we are having a boy. Then the other day I remembered how handsome I think Deveraux is. DH didn't veto it, so WDYT? Middle name...

@tarynkay thanks for the pumpingessentials.com recommendation! I just placed an order (Edgepark, the other online supplier, won't start the process until 30 days before EDD) and will keep you...
Just came across a knitwear designer named Nuriya (I like it)

So I woke up to find it's internet deal day, then found good prices for a nice glider/ottoman and the stroller we want (Chicco Bravo Trio travel system). So two big purchases off the list, now all...
I think you should go ahead and use it. We've got a similar situation where we'll probably go for our unusual boy name instead of the "safe" one because we just like it better (I especially like the...
I really like Jolise, Marisette, and Quenne. I can totally see those being used as names. Or maybe Jolisse. Which reminds me that there are some really nicely-named birth controls like Jolessa,...

@greyer your jeans still fit up until yesterday?! Holy smokes I'm totally jealous! Jeans were the first thing I grew out of...and at like 12 weeks or sooner! I found Target to not have a great...
I'm being a lazy butt and only looked up SSA data. So please forgive my "US-centric" answer.
Wow, that's a tough name for which to give a prediction that is supported by data because the name is...
