We've had three planned pregnancies and used condoms in between pregnancies until we felt like we were ready to conceive. Like one of the PP said it's not ideal, but they're cheap, effective, and...

Thanks for your kind words as well ladies! I am indeed the next one, our sweet Barrett Irwin Gregory was born on Saturday. A healthy 8 lbs and 21 inches long. We are thanking God for our precious...

I am only about a week from my due date. My cervix was dilated 4 to 5 cm, 80%, and baby is even lower than 2 weeks ago. I also lost my mucus plug today. I've been having contractions on and off...

We do a combination of cloth and disposable. We did Fuzzibunz with our first and they worked ok, but with our second and third we did Green Mountain Diaper prefolds with several different brands of...

@anajo - I love Gregor Horatio and Anastasia Joanne (also prefer this spelling) is beautiful too!
@jenileigh - Love the nursery!
@oiseau - Colin Amory Hugh is so handsome, I love the combo!

@nover - Here's a story of a mom who gave birth to her first born on September 11th. I think it puts things in perspective. Your baby's birthday will be special no matter what the date. :)

anajo - I was in my sister-in-laws wedding last month and thankfully she wasn't a bridezilla either. She let me pick out a maternity dress that matched well with the other bridesmaids. It was...

@oiseau - I haven't had the rib pain, but have had plenty of sciatic type pain, with my lower back and sometimes I can't even walk. Like you said, I just have to lay down and wait it out. Even...

@jenileigh- I actually pronounce Silas closer to Silus, but I'm in the states and perhaps am a bit lazy with my pronunciations. :confused: I would still choose to spell it Silas to avoid spelling...

@jenileigh - I love Silas as well. It was a name we considered but it's already been used by some family and friends. Such a great name though, glad you're going to use it! :)

@mill1020 - I briefly considered using my dad's name as a first for our boy, but I think it would have been confusing so it's in the middle spot as well. I personally prefer George over Andrew, but...

@amjmc - Congrats and welcome back!
@jenileigh - Thanks for your concern! :) As far as leg cramps and magnesium, have you heard of Ancient Minerals magnesium oil? It's a topical magnesium...

With our first, my husband and I took a class at the hospital together. More so to get to know the hospital than anything else. I read a book on the Bradley Method. I think reading up on different...

Happy Mother's Day! Hope you all have a blessed and special day with you family! :)

@jenileigh and @fanciful - will be praying for you both and your precious babies!
We're kind of at the same place. Now that we're having our boy, we've both thought that maybe we'll be done. But I don't think we could say the same if we were having a third girl. At this point...

Just take it one moment and one day at a time. You'll learn and get used to things as you go. I definitely have some gross poop stories but worked as a nurse assistant and nurse prior to becoming a...

@sarahgies - I don't have any experience to share about C-sections. But I would encourage you to discuss your options in depth with your OB &/or midwife. Depending on the situation with your first...

@tina91 - Congrats on your surprise baby! :)
@poppy84 - Congrats on your baby girl! I love the name Zelda, and I think Zelda Valerie is a beautiful combo and tribute to your Aunt!
I will just give you my experience with cloth diapers. First off, I am a SAHM, so I've never had to worry about daycare, etc. not taking cloth diapers. For both babies I used disposables in the...

@jenileigh - Totally agree with fanciful about having to pee constantly. I feel like I pee at least 3 times before I can go to sleep at night. And even if I just peed, I feel like I could always...
@singlemom8 and @tarynkay - Interesting about the IUI's. I had never looked into that before. I have heard that having a girl with IVF is more likely though, because the female sperm is more hardy...
Thank you all for your thoughts! I think Dashiell "Dash" narrowly won out on the this thread, but I do think it's probably just a name crush for me. Dash and Bear would be super cute as brothers,...
