NP: FWIW, I'd check with the OB to see if serious dentalwork is appropriate during pregnancy. There's a helluva lot of gross stuff and germs and viruses that hang out in your mouth. Periodontal disease is a major cause of heart disease in women. I'd check it out. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] WHy would somebody turn down baby clothes when are in bad shape financially. SIL is having a ds and I'm having a dd I have a ds and I offered to give her some of ds baby clothes. I said don't worry they are in excellent condition since some of the clothes he only wore 1-2 times. She said thank you but I prefer that he have new clothes. MIL was shocked since she knows that they are in bad shape financially and they could use the help. 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
