Thursdays are my usual days for "How To..." and I will definitely do one tomorrow.
But in the meantime I thought I'd share a couple of links.
My friend Alisa did a mini-series about prenatal testing. Part 1 is here. Part 2 is here. Good stuff all around.
A month ago I was asked on Facebook about checking cervical dilation on your own. Then I recently ran into this blog post. It mentions the labor smell- I definitely remember that. At the time, I figured it was the smell of a house that was boiling water for a day straight- but it was a little different. I also don't remember 2 bloody shows, but I remember the first- it was exciting! I was probably in la la labor land for the second.
Also, there have been a few news articles about sling recalls. This post here sums it up well: any carrier can be dangerous if you don't pay attention. When I first wore Margaret, I was constantly checking on her. As she gained head and back control, I worried less about her suffocating. Be up to date on your recalls, learn how to use products safely, enjoy wearing your babies.
So there you are: a few posts to read today in your free time.
