Beware of any opinion on pregnancy offered by a well-meaning soul who has no uterus.Such opinions are based on hearsay and conjecture.

Get advice from a nurse-midwife: nm's focus on letting nature take its course, supporting the mom and the baby, and enhancing the physical-spiritual-psychological experience of childbirth

Rest. Be gentle with yourself. Stay hydrated.

Find joy in the blessing that is pregnancy. All survival activity is biologically meaningless unless having babies is involved.


Take this advice with a grain of salt, cuz it comes from a well-meaning soul who has no uterus.

Our prayers are with you .

Love it! I was wondering the same thing because the number of men in the forum severely outnumber the ladies. One of the reasons I choose not to offer any opinions on this interesting topic. smile

Oh and congrats to bacpakjac and the rest of the family.

That's all well and good until something goes wrong.

If you're going the nursemaid or Dula route or something, most hospitals are OK with that idea. It helps to have an OB nearby if something goes wrong.

One of the hardest things to plan for how to help and deal with how the soon-to-be-not youngest/only (as I do not know if you have more than one) will child get accustomed to the interloper in their life. Our two children were almost 7 years apart. That was a bunch of time being an only child for the first. The adjustments were difficult at times. All the attention and activity appears to the former youngest to revolve around the new kid on the block. We had to make sure we set aside special time for her (the former only child). Anyway, too much confusing wording and blather. Congratulations!!!
