Re: Glucose Tolerance Test Problems

That is super weird. I used to work for a diabetes study, and we did these glucose tolerance tests regularly on our kids, so I'm super familiar with them. How in the world were your results elevated, if they were in normal range after fondue and chocolate?? Also, four blood draws? Did they check at...

Re: medicated vs. unmedicated birth

nit-picky thing maybe... I used the word "unmedicated" in the thread title here for a reason, because the term "natural birth" just kind of rubs me the wrong way. it implies that if you have a c-section or an epidural there's something "unnatural" about it, and "unnatural" makes me think of, I dunn...

After the three hour test I started freaking out waiting on my results (which I knew would take a few days) so I wen...

My favorite book to have read to me as a kid was this big illustrated edition of the hobbit my dad had- really big, coffee table book sized. I am now on a quest to buy that edition (without paying a fortune that it commonly goes for online) to read to my kid when they are old enough to enjoy it- I w...
