Not me. At my age wouldn't that be a hoot!

My youngest daughter is pregnant with her first child, and after reaching the 2-week late stage she is being induced this morning! Finally going to meet my grandson, my very first grandbaby!

Excited and scared here, I was drafted for coaching!

Congrats! being part of the birth is so special. My sister drafted me to help her with my niece's birth. I had to hold her hair back as she barfed... :rolleyes: Good times! LOL

Be sure to report back with how it went. We want weights and lengths. :D

I hope by now you have your grandchild safely in your arms, when you can pry him out of Mom's that is. I must admit to being a bit jealous as I am still waiting for grandchildren. Wishing you all the best. Do let us know how things went and what they named the little bundle.

Thank you all very much!

Little Luke Alastair made his appearance at 9:05 Thursday night, mommy labored about 12 hours. It was hard for her for a bit as she didn't want any medication, but when it came time to push she was quick! The doc almost didn't make it! Dear daughter had only about two more good pushes after the doc arrived, and baby was there!

He was 8 pounds 3 ounces, 21 inches long. He is as perfect as they come! It was quite a ride but DD and her DH were real troopers and got through it great. Thankfully no puking, but she sure felt like it.

We thought she was headed for c-section as she was not progressing for quite a while, but the nurse who came on at shift-change brought some new ideas for positioning and they got the baby rotated so he could get down and out!

I've never felt such a feeling, not even for my own when they were born. It's the same, but different. Overwhelming, all-encompassing love. Being there was the thrill of a lifetime. I am crying as I type!

I'll answer to anything...Nana, Gramma, MawMaw, Mom (LOL, that's what my nieces and nephews all call my MIL), whatever makes the kids happy. As long as they call me!

:D:wub::D:wub::D:wub::D:wub:

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
