So I have PCOS and I gave birth to my first in the beginning of 2018. I had an emergency c section at 35 weeks because she was unresponsive (got a 0/8 on the ultrasound) I almost had a blood transfusion and also became anemic from the birth. I had/ have problems with the area they did my c section, it still gets red/ inflamed, sometimes hurts on the inside really bad. Now that my daughters turn... More

I also am having a hard time going number 2.. bottom of my stomach is getting some awkward feeling pains.. does this mean I’ll be going into labor soon?

I’m due in 20 days (September 23rd) and I look 6 months pregnant. I didn’t get a belly at all until I was 7 1/2 months pregnant. My midwife says I’m measuring normally but I just look so little. I have huge stretch marks but my belly is just so small 😑 My original due date is October 3rd.. I think I have a whole month a head of me still 🤷🏼♀️🤰🏼
I’m horrified of needles and I’ve seen the epidural needle and the thought of it makes me sick to my stomach. I don’t want an epidural. My best friend almost died from it because she was allergic to it.. I know that’s extremely rare but I’m just so scared and don’t know what to choose. I’ll definitely know once I feel the pain but please help.
Has anybody had this procedure before? I’m scheduled for one next week because my baby is still breech, and I’m nervous about it! Also if anyone had a C-Section and would care to share anything about the experience, I would appreciate that, too. Thank you!
So I’m due with my second baby soon, and this baby is frank breech and has been pretty much the whole pregnancy. This means I could be heading toward a c-section. I’ve never had one, and I’m terrified!! Can anyone tell me their experiences—hopefully positive—to help me through it?
I’ve been have bad migraines, nausea and crazy swelling in my feet and ankles! I went to the hospital yesterday where the tested twice for preeclampsia and nothing but it’s just gotten worse today. Anyone else had this struggle this late into pregnancy?
I am Two months pregnant without any health insurance. I can’t afford a delivery. If I didn’t have insurance today will it cover my delivery and a baby under any circumstance? Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should do? How much did your deliveries cost.? Do you have insurance or did you pay out of pocket? Does anyone have advice
So my husband and I have been having the biggest argument over where I’ll deliver. Unfortunately, we currently live overseas due to my husbands work. I’m still in my first trimester but I was planning on delivering in Florida (where I’m from and where I have family) instead of delivering in a foreign country. I want to deliver in Florida because of the comfort of feeling at home and being in ... More
I’m 5 months pregnant with my second baby. My son is 13 months and I delivered him csection due a drop in his heart rate when I had contractions. I have the option of choosing to deliver naturally or schedule a csection. The doctor said I could deliver this baby naturally but there’s a tiny percentage that my uterus could rupture. They don’t know the extent to how much I have healed from my las... More
I wanted to share the best piece of advice I've gotten for just after delivery... bring depend adult diapers in your hospital bag! With my first son, I used the hospital ginormous pads and sexy mesh undies. Uncomfortable, leaky, cumbersome. Then I read somewhere to bring adult depend diapers. What a difference with the delivery of my second son! They're just like underwear in terms of... More
I’m 30 weeks pregnant and I’ve basically had a really easy pregnancy, no morning sickness.. haven’t puked once.. no cravings... I just have sciatica, and I get acid reflux and sometimes I can’t stand for more than a 1/2 hour because of the sciatica.. I’m thinking since the pregnancy was so easy for me that I’m gonna have a really hard time during labor.. thoughts?
