Re : Blood Pressure Higher After Birth?

I'm having SO much fun with Amelia... hence why I just don't want to pay attention to this... I would be HEARTBROKEN if I had to be readmitted. Oh well I'm going to the doctor on Thursday so we'll see what they say.

Re : Pretty good appointment today

Re : Anyone heard of Intelligender to determine sex?
