Re : Packing hospital bag....help?

Don't forget an outfit for yourself and baby to go home in. Maybe also a hairbrush and some basic tolietries, not sure if you want to use their soap, toothpaste etc..

Re : headaches but they come and go

<t>No the PE headache doesn't really go away and it's usually a horrible headache, when I had mine it was like someone had my head in a vice. It will "linger" even after you take tylenol and not go away completly. The loss of appetite and dehydration can also explain light headaches, I know how hard...

Re : PE and infant/toddler sleep problems?

<t>My DD was born extremly early and has never had problems sleeping. She was a great sleeper from the beginning, b/c of her feed schedule we had to wake her to feed her though. I don't remember when we stopped waking her to feed and let her sleep through the night if she chose. She's always been a ...

Swimming and pregnancy

<t>Is it safe to swim in a pool while pregnant? I only researched it a little bit, but nothing seems conclusive. Most the studies I've read talk about public pools, but I wouldn't be swimming in a public pool. We got my 4yr old this above ground pool it's like 3ft deep and like 6ft wide, so it's fai...

Re : Hypertension "test"?

<t>The only thing my OB did to make sure I wasn't hypertensive to start with, was to have be do a blood pressure study before getting pregnant. Basically it was just monitoring my blood pressure 3x a day at the same time of day (ie. when you wake up, some time in middle of day and before bed) and re...

Re : Side Sleeping..

Thanks! I knew back sleeping was bad and I knew they said left was better then right, but wasn't sure why or if right side sleeping was really that bad. My blood pressure has been fine so I'm not worried about that, just didn't want to hurt the baby. Thanks again!

Side Sleeping..

<t>I've always heard that you are supposed to sleep on your left side when you get further along in your pregnancy. I've started my 30th week (never been this pregnant before, so yeah!) and have noticed I'm actually starting to sleep more on my right side. My question is does sleeping on the right h...

Re : 25 pds at 2 yrs old?

<t>Morgan turns 5 in July and is not more then 35lbs. I don't remeber her weight around 2 but I'm pretty sure she wasn't more then 26lbs. As long as your DD is tracking along her own growth curve your ped won't be worried. Morgan was always at like the bottom or not even on the chart for weight but ...
