    PregoNes – absolutely give your birth plan to your hospital. It’s also a good idea to bring one with you and give to the attending nurses when you get there, and keep one with your birth support partner so he/she can refer to it as needed…. that way, you know for sure that one is in your file, in your room, and with your attending dr.

    My cousin was born 3 months premature. He was the size of a forearm. He was in NICU for a very gruelling 3 months.

  • Hi ladies, I just wanted to say that every BODY is different and ANYthing can happen.

    I was diagnosed w/ endo when I was 16 yrs old (I’m 29 y/o now). I had 2 laporoscopies, and was told I’d ‘be lucky to get pregnant’. So, believing my docs, I didnt practice very safe sex – heh, used the pill but not always on time.
