Re : Question of the day: what made you deliver?

<t>I was induced at 38 weeks and two days. My doctor wanted to induce at that gestational age because I was carrying twins.

Re : Question of the Day re: family size

Re : preemie girl cold weather gear

<t>Hi Ladies (especially our PF Coordinators),<br/> <br/> I'm jumping in, per Anne's request. Yes, one of her (many great) ideas is to collect baby clothes and gear and then sell them at a baby sale--proceeds going to PF.
