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!

    • I'm hoping to donate to celiac research this year.  Does anyone have recommendations as to where to donate?  Celiac Disease Foundation?  Celiac research at a hospital or university? Thanks!
    • Thank you so much for your responses!! It is so hard because there are so many unknowns, inconclusive results, and lots of waiting!! I didn't realize it was so difficult to even get the tests to begin with. Thank you both SO much. I feel much better & am more comfortable going into my doctors appointment. 
    • Just looking at its name, one might wonder if buckwheat is safe for people on a gluten-free diet. However, unlike its name, buckwheat does not naturally contain any wheat or gluten. As a result, buckwheat is generally safe for people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet. Turns out that buckwheat and wheat are from different, unrelated botanical families. As with quinoa, buckwheat is the seed of a flowering plant, as such it is not considered a grain or a cereal. View the full article
    • Oh my I just re read your post. Ok now I am going to definitely say yes-you need to find someone who will test you. If this Dr. will not you may want to look for one who will. I slowly reveal my issues on here and I still keep things close to the vest. My pregnancies/labor/deliveries were impacted by my not knowing of my illness earlier.
      I lost my first as a missed miscarriage IUGR- likely undiagnosed Celiac. I was high risk delivery with my daughter and then a high risk pregnancy/delivery with my son. I had problems with both and was far from "normal" with both of the children I am blessed to have. I had a horrible  rash after my daughter that was diagnosed as PUPPP by physical observation/no sample taken. which I continued to experience on and off in milder form over the subsequent years after on my butt, elbows, knees, arms, hands etc. I see on here  that is spot on DH. Another missed opportunity. My son had additional problems during pregnancy, had NICU, PICU and surgeries within the first year of life. I am strongly encouraging you to look into this now if you can check for Celiac and other auto immune now before starting your pregnancies for you and your child/children's health and well being. That way you know how to best support both you health and are fully nutritionally supported before pregnancy.   Best wishes and good luck
    • I try not to take a lot of ibuprofen as I know it's not great for my gut.  But, when I need it, I take Costco's Kirkland ibuprofen.  It is labelled gluten free and I have had no issues with it.
