Re: Tell me about birthing classes

I did the typical hospital offered birthing class. I believe it was a six week session, once a week, for 3 hours or so. My favorite part of the class was the last week when we got to go on a your of labor and delivery. Honestly, I think the only thing that prepared me for birth was birth itself.

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

Took a Wondofo today and it couldn't be more negative. I'll wait for DH to get home before I take a FRER. I was hopeful, but now I'm dubious. Might be something residual with the D&C last month. If I don't get a period by next week, I'll contact the midwives. AMC, I understand what you mean by ...

What's your IQ?

PSers seem to be very smart. Of all of the forums I'm a part of, it's the one where the debates are the most well thought out and people (mostly) use BOTH logic and reason. Amazing. For those who have been tested, what is your IQ? I know much more goes into intelligence than IQ, but I'd still though...

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Hi all! It's been slow over here! When did your kiddos start putting two words together? B doesn't do that at all, other than "oh no." A weekly developmental email I get said this: "Your child loves to help: "Me do it" and "By self!" are two of a toddler's favorite...

Re: The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

Just wanted to pop in and say, from an endocrinology standpoint - in the context of no diagnosis of hypothyroidism (biochemically +/- clinically symptomatic), a TSH of 2.4 (for example) is NORMAL. Now, in someone who has hypothyroidism of whatever cause, treatment is a "best guess" at wha...

Those owls look huge! How big is the courtyard where they have established themselves? There must be plenty of good tasting critters to keep them around in there. :)) The courtyard is pretty big.

Re: Do you have a housekeeper?

No, but I want one. DH is a deputy sheriff and he says no. He takes way too many burglary cases from people who are either robbed by their cleaning people or robbed by someone the cleaning people know (after the cleaning people stake it out).

Okay, I got the rest of my repeat loss blood work back. Negative for MTHFR and all of the other clotting tests. EXCEPT my Protein C Activity was high at 178 (range 55-140). Right on the results it says high protein c has no known clinical significance.

Re: Baby owl!

Ahh. Possible. Keep in mind that female raptors are 30% to 40% larger than males so if he's a bouncing baby boy he will never be close to as big as mom. He could be fledged already since he made his way up the tree. Oh neat! It was sort of funny. We were all worried because we hadn't seen him since...

Such a BIG baby! So cool!! Bird nerd alert lol... by the time those owls fledge (leave the nest) at about 3-4 months old, they're already full-grown! So, big baby indeed! I love their baby fluff though :) This guy isn't that old. Maybe two months? I don't think he actually meant to leave the nest. ...

In a courtyard at work there's a baby owl. Mama owl is high up in a nest and baby owl fell/flew/jumped out of the best yesterday. He was hiding in bushes yesterday but managed to get himself to higher ground today.
