My sister hasn't been able to find full time work since her maternity leave ended. I'm hoping she will still be available and willing to watch my kid in a year and a half when I go back to work.

You lucky Canadians with your normal maternity leaves

GreenMagick...I actually didn't think of that as a way to raise a bilingual child, I'm hoping my kid will be bilingual anyway as her Dad & Step-grandmother's family both speak fluent Spanish. If I did put her in a daycare like that, I'm sure I could manage to get the paperwork filled out or find a friend to help translate if her Dad couldn't do it. I'd just be worried it'd be hard for the caretaker to communicate with me about any issues, but if her Dad is around that might be ok, and I'm sure if I look around I can find one with English-speaking caretakers. I'll definitely not rule it out as an option just because of the language barrier.

Most likely my kid will end up in college campus daycare, as a student I won't pay full tuition...my parents already offered to babysit her in the evenings if I take night classes for the semester after her birth, but I'm hoping I can work a few hours in the evenings and take one or two morning classes - when the baby will go to daycare or her Dad will watch her before he goes to work/school.

It's a boy!!!

Ryland James. <3





Tests all looked normal. Put in another blood test just to be sure and will know in a few days, but my chance went from 1/138 to 1/300.

So it looks like I will be having a happy, healthy, bouncing baby boy!

Oh, Barbara, I'm so happy for you! I was thinking of you today and waiting for an update!

How does it feel to be the only one having a boy, on Chaz and out of the 10ish other ladies I know having baby girls?!

Haha, I feel like I could fly away, I'm so happy. It's no secret I wanted a boy and while I would have been happy with a girl of course, with everything going on, the fact that I will be having the baby boy I wanted all my life has made today the perfect day. <3 And that he is healthy. The second they said "boy" I just burst into tears and said his name over and over again. I'm sure that's a feeling everyone else here has felt as well.

Has anyone used or does anyone plan on using any kind of baby breathing monitor?

I saw one today that clips right onto the diaper, and monitors the movement of the stomach. It's 100$, but has good reviews. I am TERRIFIED of SIDS. Like, even before I got pregnant, I would think about what if I ever have a child and SIDS happens to us. I know I'm going to be neurotic and nuts about any sleeping area for my baby, probably have a fan and humidifier going, constantly check the sheets/mattress/etc...

I'm wondering if a monitor for breathing would be a good idea, at least for peace of mind.
