  • I must add being the baby loves sweet the only compromise to it is having diet soda cures the sweet tooth,helps for unhealthy weight gain and settles my stomach as well.

  • Lol..I agree with you i think the baby wants me to open a candy store as much as it desires.
    I until this baby never ate bad,trained for marathons,now i want to sleep lots,eat junk and have no energy to go to the bathroom let alone do any exercise.

  • Eat NOTHING but organic food and not scratch my belly. I'd also only drink water...I started drinking nothing but water AFTER I had him. lol.
    I'd also try a natural birth because the first time I got induced.

  • I was induced with my first, ate foods with hormones, etc. This time we are having a home birth and I stick to mostly natural and organic foods. Soda is my vice though, because it's the only thing that settles my tummy when I get my bad morning sickness.

    We aren't cutting the cord until after it's done pulsating, I will nurse right away, I will labor however I want and wont have doctors bothering me. :) I am so excited about this birth it's unbelievable.

    I want a blessing way, no shower... but wont get either because we just got stationed here and family and friends are 9 or more hours away.

    I don't want any visitors for 2 weeks after the baby is born to give me time to adjust and get breastfeeding down.

  • I am going to a different hospital.
    Getting a different doctor.
    Not having an epidural if I can help it.
    I'm hoping my water doesn't break before anything else because I don't want to be induced again.
    I'll get a fetal heart monitor that actually works.
    I won't stress out as much as I had with the first one.
    If I don't feel him move, I'll give it time before going to the doctor's office.
    I'll try to enjoy being pregnant and not complain so much
    I will sleep as much as I can in the last month

  • DIET SODA IS NOT SAFE DURING PREGNANCY!!!

    To the OP:

    -Be in charge of my prenatal care instead of letting a doctor dictate it.
    -Have a natural birth (not just drug free but natural)
    -Have a more elegant baby shower instead of the paper plate and decorations type I had last time. (I've already talked to my mom about this so I'll be getting it)

  • anon.. most women deliver 36-48 hours after their water breaks. :) You don't need to be induced just because it breaks.

    Sorry for getting off topic lol..
