Mommies to be check in

Recommended Posts

Congrats Mo! I am jealous! So much for nothing going on!!

 

I just got back from the doctor and I am only dialated to 1, and 50% effaced.

So, I go in for stress tests Friday, and if all is well I get induced on Tuesday- that is if it doesn't happen naturally before then!

Shea I was induced and was only in labor for 11 hours, I probably could have done it without an epidural if I had known that it would be ending soon, but I got an epidural at 7cm.

Has anyone had a membrane sweep? I had one with my daughter because I wanted it to happen before my induction date. So, I went to my doc apt on Tuesday and had one (It hurts so bad.. I screamed in the doctor's office!!) then I went into labour Wednesday early morning and had my daughter that night.

She supposedly swept my membranes today, but being only dilated to 1, I don't think it will work. It didn't feel any different than a normal exam either for me.

Oh yeah, maybe she didn't go deep enough.. You would DEFINATELY feel it!! I was 3 cm dilated and 0% effaced when I had mine, but I didn't feel anything until later on that night.

I teach in public schools and there is no way that our students would be allowed to enter without proper vaccinations. Yes there are some ways to exempt yourself but its a huge risk you are taking to assume you will get exempt.
Yes, they are mandatory for those who DO NOT have an exemption form. I believe I know what case you are talking about where they herded the parents and children in with armed guns and dogs. In that case they were children and parents who did NOT have an up to date vaccine record or exemption form on file. I happen to live in an easy state. I fill out a box for personal reasons (philosophical) and I'm fine. So yes it depends on your state for how easy. But saying there's no way that some kids can't go to public school isn't true. If they have an exempt form they can.

I've weighed the risks of the vaccine and the disease and personally me and DH would not. So it's a personal decision. You sound like you did your research and that's why your delay vaxing. Informed consent is everything. And everyone should have informed consent and correct information.

And Congrats Mo on the birth of TJ. I remember just yesterday coming on here and you getting married at the RIU right before me. And now you have a baby. TIME FLIES!!!

In that case they were children and parents who did NOT have an up to date vaccine record or exemption form on file. You can google it. It didn't include parents who had correct exempt forms. I happen to live in an easy state. I fill out a box for personal reasons (philosophical) and I'm fine. So yes it depends on your state for how easy. But saying there's no way that some kids can't go to public school isn't true. My in-laws taught for over 30 years and here almost half the kids weren't vaxed. I live in a very alternative health area. If they have an exempt form they can.

NVIC — Maryland Exemptions
Effective currently: (1) The individual objects to immunization because it conflicts with the individual's bona fide religious beliefs and practices; or (2) The individual is a minor and the individual's parent objects to immunization because it conflicts with the parent's bona fide religious beliefs and practices.

Effective May 2008: a child whose parent objects to immunization on the ground that it conflicts with the parent's bona fide religious beliefs and practices may not be required to present a physician's certification of immunization in order to be admitted to school.
Quote:
ETA: I didn't realize you were in VA oops....I have Maryland on the brain.
A. Religious and medical exemptions. No certificate of immunization shall be required of any student for admission to school if:

1. The student or his parent or guardian submits a Certificate of Religious Exemption (Form CRE 1), to the admitting official of the school to which the student is seeking admission. Form CRE 1 is an affidavit stating that the administration of immunizing agents conflicts with the student's religious tenets or practices. For a student enrolled before July 1, 1983, any document present in the student's permanent school record claiming religious exemption shall be acceptable, or
2. The school has written certification on any of the documents specified under "documentary proof'' in 12 VAC 5-110-10 from a physician or a local health department that one or more of the required immunizations may be detrimental to the student's health. Such certification of medical exemption shall specify the nature and probable duration of the medical condition or circumstance that contraindicates immunization. For a student enrolled before July 1, 1983, any document attesting to the fact that one or more of the required immunizations may be detrimental to the student's health shall be acceptable.

B. Demonstration of existing immunity. The demonstration in a student of antibodies against either rubeola or rubella in sufficient quantity to ensure protection of that student against that disease, shall render that student exempt from the immunization requirements contained in 12 VAC 5-110-70 for the disease in question. Such protection should be demonstrated by means of a serological testing method appropriate for measuring protective antibodies against rubeola or rubella respectively.
I've weighed the risks of the vaccine and the disease and personally me and DH would not. So it's a personal decision. You sound like you did your research and that's why your delay vaxing. Which is awesome you looked into it before doing it. Informed consent is everything. And everyone should have informed consent and correct information.

And Congrats Mo on the birth of TJ. I remember just yesterday coming on here and you getting married at the RIU right before me. And now you have a baby. TIME FLIES!!!
