Re: The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

HH, I am sorry to read this. I had almost exactly the same numbers and ended up pregnant with E (now 17 months) on our second clomid cycle. I was also doing acupuncture (for a year), taking a variety of supplements, gave up gluten and sugar, and was doing fertility yoga, and had an HSG and a polypec...

Re: Cloth Diapers?

We liked the thirsties doublers (but didn't need to use them until about 5 or 6 months) and once he started eating solids we also used a diaper liner that we could throw away with the poop in it (helps to prevent staining and made washing in our NYC laundry room a little easier).

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Hi Ladies, It is fun to catch-up:-) I stopped pumping around 9-10 months too. E pretty much only nurses at night (usually around 1am and 4:30am) and then when he wakes up in the morning. The morning nursing we could easily give up if we went straight to breakfast. The night nursings his is not at al...

Monkey-That is a lot to deal with! I am so sorry that you are going through this right now. I hope that baby girl flips head down soon and that you can have a smooth vaginal delivery.
