Do you know if your hospital has an I-Nursery?

What's an I-Nursery. :huh:

Steph,

I'm so excited for you! I was wondering about yesterday too since you had done so much work the day before. :blink:

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.

It's a place on the hospitals website where you can go and see the baby's pictures who were born. It doesn't give last names or sometimes not even anything more than the mothers first name. It gives weight, height, and birth time. They are becoming popular.

Here is the one at the hospital I work at.

You would find the month on the left hand side and you will get a calendar and find the baby. They are a great way to share the birth with long distance family and friends.

My sisters baby was born in a different hospital, and they took a couple different pictures and one of the parents and they were on the "baby's page" on the I-nursery. It was cute.

Ok, I've heard of those.

That's neat! I thought you had to have name/password to access those sites.

Some hospitals you do, some you don't. I know our hospital doesn't require any passwords or anything. :)

Stef, so glad things are progressing for you. I thought for sure that you were having him yesterday. Hopefully you'll go today or tomorrow. I'm so excited for you!!!

Thanks for all the 'Good luck' wishes. I just lost my mucous plug like 10 minutes ago. Since I have never been pregnant, I don't know, if that was the entire plug, but it was quite a big of a chunk. Now all the early signs have happened so far. Next thing must be baby :rolleyes: , there is no other way anymore now. Things are rolling and it's pretty much the point of no return :P .

Um, INursery... I have no idea. There is something like a Web Nursery on the Women's Center webpage, where I'm delivering. But it doesn't seem to be connected to the actual Women's Center :unsure: . I have no idea, guys. I decided to just put the link to the hospital in here and if I go into l&d without a chance to update you in time, then it depends on, if this Web Nursery is for free or not. Cause if it's not, then I gladly wait the 48 hours until I come home. I've heard, they can be sooo expensive. Here's the link to the Women's Center in Carlisle, where I'm delivering. Maybe even some of you guys can figure this out. Sometimes I'm an internet idiot... sorry:

Stef, it appears to be free. They will likely have forms for you to fill out at the hospital. Be sure that you read all the fine print though as sometimes they try to trick you into buying your baby's first photos through them and they're generally (IMO) not worth the money. I just took a camera w/ me to the hospital and had my husband following the nurses around snapping pictures. I'm sure you'll be able to do the same thing.

Good luck tonight! I hope you get a good night's sleep before you go into labor. I have a funny feeling your wait will now be measured in hours rather than days. :) Enjoy it all!!!

Well, if it's not today, then it will be fairly soon. I know it's hard waiting (I went over with all three of my kids), but remember that baby will come when s/he's good and ready...this really is something worth waiting for. :)

My next doctor's appointment is at 12:10pm. Hopefully he will check me then. Let's see, if something moved from last week, when I was considered 80% effaced and not soft or dilated, until today. Maybe I'm so far along, that they will keep me right away. :lol: Wouldn't that be cool!?! On the other hand, since I apparently don't have contractions yet, I don't want to be induced, just because they keep me and want to get things going <_< . And technically, if nothing's wrong, he can stay in there about two weeks longer, what I don't really want, but you never know :( .

Don't worry, Stef, they won't induce you just because you've dilated a lot. They'll let you walk around at 8 cm so long as your water hasn't broken. Maybe an exam will get things moving along for you. Also, just because you don't feel contractions doesn't mean you aren't having any. With my first I was having contractions and I had no clue. They were very surprised that I couldn't feel them.
