  • Re: Lovely birth video

    I'm amazed by those women who can birth in a squat.  I thought I'd do my birthing stool last time (it's very squat like), but as soon as I got in that position, I freaked - nooooo way!  Then I was running around trying to figure out where I was going to birth the baby.  I had a goat do that one time - not squat, but ...

  • Re: foot cramps at orgasm

     Well, ehem, I read all about sex in this medical textbook one time, and one of the things that often happens at orgasm is that the toes curl in and the foot contracts.  I'm conscious of doing that during sex.  If you can be aware of what your doing with your feet, you can probably avoid curling them.  I'm always really ...

  • Re: Diva Cup

     Just wanted to report that I turned my Keeper inside out, and it works great!  (The Keeper is kind of stiff, so I didn't know if it could be done, but I did it!)  I've had a little issue of leaking some clear fluid - kind of weird, don't think it's urine.  Don't know if maybe the ribs - that are usually on ...

  • Re: How do we get women to take responsibility for themselves?

    Yeah, it is sad.  I talk to the women who just come out and say "well, that was the most awful thing I ever experienced.  I'm never having another kid."  And I talk to women who at first say it was beautiful and then a few months down the road the fuse blows, and they start talking about how scared they were.  My ...
  • How do we get women to take responsibility for themselves?

    Since my son has CP, I run in circles now where it is somewhat common for parents to sue their labor attendant.  I find it really frustrating.  I know there are cases where that is appropriate.  But sometimes I run into situations where parents seem to want it all.  When something goes wrong after the midwife gave them a choice ...
  • Re: A long year without MT

    Thanks for sharing!  Sounds like your OT thought alot of it was a sensory processing issue.  Juju isn't as over sensitive as he used to be, but now that I think about that issue again - I'm wondering if he is finding certain places harder to deal with.  I know he hates musty smells, and the old building the PT is in has a ...

    [quote user="azores"]Before I knew what Connor had, I went crazy on a daily basis wondering if I had a future cereal killer on my hands...his fiery aggression first appeared at 6 months. To my relief, therapy has helped immensely.[/quote] Could you share what exactly has helped his attitude?  We have a terrible time with ...
  • Re: A long year without MT

     Respectfully, raising a special needs child like Azores and I are doing does change the situation quite drastically.  I agree with everything Claudia said, but I've also found that I've had to relax my standards somewhat to accomedate the huge amount of work my little one requires.  I have to depend on the older kids ...
  • Re: A long year without MT

    I think educated women may have an especially hard time with being a SAHM.  We spend all these years getting an education, expanding our horizons, becoming well rounded, talented individuals, and then we don't know what to do with ourselves when we find ourselves in the SAHM box.  I always laugh when people ask me how I have time to ...
  • Re: A long year without MT

    I'll tell you how I do it - not that I claim it is anything to emulate!  Our house is a wreck.  DH and I have relented to the inmates running the asylum.  Really we both feel it is nearly impossible to keep it in order while they are all so young and at the stage of constantly dragging things out.  We are trying to ...
