    My brother is 22, now, and he has Downs. He lives with my husband and I and he’s doing really well. When he was very young-under a year- he had a ventrical heart defect and had some scary times. But now he’s very healthy and functioning at a mid-to-high level for someone with Downs. I’m so proud of him. I know it must be scary, right now, to look…[Read more]

    Both of my sons were born with umbilical hernias, my mother had one, and I had one which had to be repaired after my first pregnancy. My older son had a surgical consult when he was about two and they didn’t think it warrented surgery. He’s now four and has no signs of it. My younger son just turned two in July and still has what looks to me like…[Read more]

    Does anyone out there know, Is this disease dangerouse to pregnant women? I have no idea if I’ve ever had it, but my best friend’s daughter has it and I haven’t been able to see her for almost two week for fear of my kids or I getting it! Now her husband has it, so it could be another two weeks before we can have our weekly ‘ladies night’ at her…[Read more]

    I’m 28 weeks along with a third boy, and my oldest son (who is almost five) and I were watching the Today show, this week. They had a segment about a woman who had sextuplets (that’s six, right?) who were just turning 18 months. My son goes, ‘Mom, I have a question about sex. Did that woman and her husband have sex six time all at once, to get six…[Read more]

    A few mornings ago, I was laying in bed, and I felt my baby kick up higher than he’s ever been able to reach, before. This was like way up by my ribs, and I’m only 24 weeks- so I think he must have some super-long legs! It kind of made me nauseous, though, because now that my uterus is getting so big, there isn’t much room for my intestines and…[Read more]

    I’ve been having a lot of Braxton Hicks lately and they always make me feel like I have to pee.

  • ashleykaye, I have two boys who are four and two. They’re both really into the superhero thing, so when they start to fight, I tell them that being brothers is like being a super-team. They have to work together and watch out for eachother, so they can keep the world safe. If they fight with eachother, all the time, they can’t watch out for the…[Read more]

  • AHHHHHHHHH!! My back is killing me and my rib cage is about to explode! I’m miserable right now!

  • chloemamma replied to the topic General babies in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    My boys both coslept with me until just recently. They’re two and four, and I just weened the two year old. The transition was/still is very difficult, at least for my boys, but it doesn’t override the bennifits there were in cosleeping, for our family. It got a little crowded, at times, and my husband and I started to miss our privacy, which are…[Read more]

  • Ready and Waiting- I was only twenty when I got pregnant with my first son. Technically not a ‘teen parent’ but pretty close. I wasn’t trying to concieve, but when I did, I knew I was ready to make the necessary saccrifices and comitments. My family treated me like a ‘girl in trouble’ but I pulled through and went on to be a damn good mom, if I do…[Read more]

  • Seriously, I would say the best emotional thing you can do for yourself, before you get pregnant, is to write yourself a list of short-term goals that a baby would impede you from accomplishing and take whatever period of time you feel you need and accomplish as many as you can/need to. My first pregnancy was unexpected, and there were so many…[Read more]

    I had this dream, last night, that I was on a beach, right after my baby was born (I’m six months along) and he went back and forth between seeming real and seeming to be a doll. I knew I should be in a hospital (I have C-sections), but I had to attend this meeting at a friend’s painting studio on the beach (I’m a painter). I didn’t want to be…[Read more]
