Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Hi ladies! I haven't posted in a while, but wanted to give a quick update. 37 weeks tomorrow! I've gained about 2-3lbs this pregnancy, and Dr.'s aren't worried about it anymore since the measurements of the baby came back fine at 28 weeks. We had a growth scan at 36 weeks and baby weighed in at 6lbs...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Tammy: I agree, if they were worried about it they would let you know. Doctor's aren't there to soft peddle anything. They would let you know everything. Try not to worry (easier said than done I know!) Nearing 33 weeks over here. Still at 0lbs gained. Had an elective u/s a week ago and the baby is ...

Re: Sulfolk/Norfolk, VB, Newport News, VA Area?

I'm from Virginia Beach. I love the area and we easily drive to Norfolk and Williamsburg for attractions out there. Suffolk is definitely not as built up (to my very limited knowledge), but you are definitely within driving distance of fun stuff (the beach, Busch Gardens, Outlet Shopping, etc.)

Re: How much do you spend on baby expenses?

We use target brand formula, wipes and diapers to save on cost and they are all of great quality. Our pediatrician said that the formula is the exact same thing as the expensive brands.

Re: Cost of birth in the US

With insurance I paid $35 for the first 7 months of visits and didn't really pay anything for the last couple of months.

Our bill for Epidural was 150....and our hospital bill for vaginal birth and 2 day stay was about 900-1000..can't remember exactly.
