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!

    • The Op hasn't been on the forum for over a year.  Not sure if she has notifications turned on.   you might want to re- think putting your real name on a forum that will Be seen by thousands of people & a dozen trolls.
    • MariaofColumbia,   I came across this thread when a two different friends had posted on facebook.  I read it and felt like you were talking to me.  I've had issues for 7 years now.  My candida cannot get under control.  I went and checked my vitamin B levels and they are high.  I've been on methyl folate for several months now, but only one pill a day.  I do have one MTHFR gene mutation.  I've tried SO MANY candida diets/options and the minute I stray it is back out of whack...or it never really gets rid of it.  I pick up viruses fairly frequently because my immune system is so taxed.  I'm so very tired of dealing with this!!!  I'm wondering if you could go into more detail as to what exactly you started taking/how often/what foods you still avoided (sugar/vinegar/mushrooms/peanut butter/etc), and where your healthy B levels are at now?  You can find me on facebook as Jessica Hecker Andersen and we could always private message as well.  I really wish I could just call you!  lol.  Please, any further information would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!
    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
