On the diaper bag talk - we got this backpack at our shower/party thing. Eddie Bauer Broadmoor Diaper Bag. I haven't actually opened it yet (there's SO MUCH STUFF in the baby room now it's a little overwhelming) but I'll hopefully get into it this weekend.

Thoughts?
It sounds like how they described it in the prep class we're in. My doctor and my mom described contractions as waves - they build up low and slow, peak for a set amount of time and then go back down.

I really liked the article stardogs posted. I thought it was more descriptive than a lot of articles about what childbirth feels like, and still managed to include the wide range of what is "normal".

I'm hesitant to use a backpack instead of a shoulder diaper bag, because I'm afraid it will be a pain to grab stuff out of it quickly - like to check my cell phone or grab my wallet or something.

Also, does anyone else have that stretch marks on only one side of their body thing? Google tells me it's normal and common, but it's SO weird. One of my boobs has two tiny little stretchmarks on the side, and the other one is entirely covered in them. Now I'm getting some on my stomach on the same side as the stretch-markey boob. Why does this even happen?!?!? My skin is the same on both sides!!!

Thought this might be a good summary on what to expect in a hospital birth. http://thebirthofadoula.blogspot.com...to-expect.html

They basically compiled loads of links on standard practices with brief summaries at the beginning of each section.

I dunno - I think it's going to be a pain to juggle a baby and try to get things out of a diaper bag no matter what. I also don't like having things hang off one shoulder, I can only wear messenger bag styles on my left shoulder (or it feels wrong) so I usually end up with muscle problems on that side.

31 weeks today, my DH has been off work today working on baby's room, I just picked up her custom made crib blanket and my 3D ultrasound is tomorrow! Heck yes!

Sigh. In her usual fashion, baby girl was super uncooperative and hid her face in the side of my uterus the whole time. So we go back on Wednesday to try again. Here's the one decent picture we got:

Clive was uncooperative for pretty much every 3-d ultrasound attempt. He'd always cover his face, etc. But he was famous for doing that the entire time. This probably should have tipped me off that he'd be a persnickity child... lol

Mine is uncooperative for every ultrasound AND everytime the midwife tries to check her heart with the Doppler. I'm hoping for dh's sake that she is better on Wednesday.

Hey guys, had a scare last night. Was experiencing early labor contractions and was admitted. IV and everything... They got them to stop. 24 weeks, very scary. Other than that, all is well.


What's the opinion here on sex during pregnancy? My nurses were throwing a fit about it, saying its a bad idea, but I've heard way different. Thoughts?

My doctor didn't feel it was a no no.

However, I don't know if it would negatively affect things if there's already a preterm labor issue.
