Re : The expense of it all...

<t>You really found my sore spot! It was costing me 700 bucks a week to stay pregnant the last 4 or 5 weeks just for BPP's, NST's labs, etc. I also was in the hospital for a few days around 20 weeks, then there was the fee for the c-section, his assistant, the circ, the hospital stay, the anesthesio...

Re : Oxytocin

<t>Well, as far as it affecting the baby, I am under the impression it will do absolutely nothing to him. She said oxytocin is what the body produces naturally during let-down and is the substance that gives you the "warm and fuzzy" feeling while you are nursing. She thinks that I might have a probl...

Oxytocin

Well, bf'ing is going...okay. Lactation seems to think I have some difficulty with letting down, and they recommended taking Oxytocin. Has anyone else taken this? Did it work?

Re : Umn .......AmyK?

Wish I had pictures, (well, I do) it's just that I really don't know how to get them off my camera. <br/> So...just now really soaking it all in...I had no idea fluid could drop so quickly. Is that normal? Also, just on a side note, I think I found what was causing ...

Re : Umn .......AmyK?

<t>Hi! Yes, I had my pumpkin! In fact, I just got discharged from the hospital and am home now. He was born on Monday, but I tell you, it was weird. I went in for those bad labs, but before he even got to look at them, he noticed that my fundal height was much lower than on Friday. An ultrasound sho...
