Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

That's fuuun! :lol:

Yes, it's the first baby. He will be sooooo spoiled. He's not only OUR first baby. He's pretty much THE first in all our relations in the family :lol: . Aunt Gwen already said 'Oooh, at our motorbike event September 2nd I already know what I'm doing.' MIL said 'Yeah? What's that then?' Aunt Gwen was like 'Of course, holding Stef's baby.' I was like 'Great, I get to ride with my husband again.' :lol:

I think, my time is Eastern time, but I'm not sure. We live in PA... so I think, it's Eastern.

Thanks for this poll. Do I get to guess, too?

No, unfortunately not :( . This is because we had the baby shower at my MIL's house, with glutenfree cake of course :rolleyes: , and everything we got didn't fit into my car. So Lukas and I got like two car loads of goodies :lol: . And we had to leave my husbands truck up there, because his dad wanted to repair something in it's engine (he is the owner of a machine shop, so it's for free). So, everything we got didn't fit in the car, especially not the baby crib and the drawer/cupboard, whatever you call it. Then the bassinet is still up there and some other stuff. We will get it down here, when the truck is fixed, which already took like 16 days so far. So I hope we will get everything soon. <_< And then I will get going here like a whirlwind. But I already did some small stuff. I maybe can post some pics soon, if I have the time...

Just wanted to let you guys know. Nothing so far! I had to go to the bathroom tonight for the first time in this pregnancy due to pressure on my bladder. Might be a sign, that the head is engaged and putting pressure on. Then I woke up to very slight tension in my back. Felt like a kidney problem :o . No real pain, just disturbing for a while. 1 hour later it was gone. I've had disturbing pressure on my pubic bone all day, even now as I'm writing this. So I hope, something will start here soon. I don't know though. Could be being sore from working out and having loose ligaments and joints at this point in life as well.

Good night. I'll let you know, if anything changes as soon as I can.

My predictions are

21 inch long

7lbs9.2oz

time of birth 2:15am on Aug 26 sorry unless you have sex with your husband alot, sperm has some kind of magic on getting contraction to happen

I think that you will go fast because you are in shape maybe 8hrs

without pitosin, which will be easier

no drugs, natural all the way, maybe some Demorol to take the edge off at the very end at 8-9cm works like a charm gives you enough rest for the finally.

When you do have your baby if something does not look right and the nurses are not feeling you about your concerns then get someone who will. I work with newborns I'm not a nurse but I have seen baby not looking right color and all making noises that they are not suppose too, like grunting sounds cute to someone who does not know that the noise is wrong. so if you don't feel comfortable about your baby send him the nursery between feeding at first and then ease him in back to your room to get to know him, let the nursery staff take care of him especially if your are tired, if he winds up big like over 8lbs let him have a little forumal if you are breastfeeding your colosterum yes is enough but sometimes not enough for a big baby. Hope you have a great birthing experiance.

Hi there, 9 days left and still nothing. Sometimes I feel pressure from the baby trying to expand and he puts the pressure either on the front of my belly or down. And even though, the pressure is slightly uncomfortable, I try to support him in putting the pressure down there. In the hope, maybe something (like the mucous plug) plops out :lol: .

I will hop over to your poll in a second, Angie! Just hang in there! I'm still counting, too!

She's naming him Lukas. Isn't that beautiful? I believe her full name choice was Lukas Alexander. Sounds so regal, doesn't it? :)
