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:

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
