9-Year-old Asking About Sex

My daughter has asked me what the word sex means and what sex is. She is 9. I explained to her that some questions are very difficult to answer and that I would like some time to think about it so I answer it the best way I can. She accepted that but I feel I need to give her an answer soon. Any suggestions? How much should a 9-year-old know? It's obvious someone, probably a kid at school, has used the word or talked about it. Otherwise she wouldn't be asking. I do realize she could have also gotten it from TV. We have already talked about...

Allowing 7 Year Old to Join in Birth Experience

Hello I am 35 weeks pregnant and my 7 year old keeps telling me that he wants to be at the hospital to witness the birth of his sister. He has been asking for a few months and I honestly thought he would give up on the idea. I had been against the idea , as I was worried about him being scared/traumatized but our doula said she had experienced young children at births with no problems. Does anyone have any experience with this matter? Thanks for all your feedback! C.

Future Mom Terrified of Labor and Delivery

I am wondering if anyone out there can calm my strong fear of going through childbirth. I am 36 weeks this week with my first (and probably only child... read on... ) and realize that I don't have much time left to go. About 6 weeks ago, I all of a sudden had this strong fear about giving birth. This occurred after watching shows on TLC and DHC and happening to catch a woman giving birth and looking like she was in the most unbearable, excruciating pain. I also made the mistake of catching 5 minutes of an episode of "Freebirthing..." Wow,...

"Slightly" Positive Pregnancy Test??

Hello! Here's a little bit of a background. When I am not on the pill my periods are super iregular. I think it was pure luck that we got pregnant on the first try with baby #1 who is now 17 months old. Well, we are trying again. I started my last period on Jan 12 and haven't had one since. I have an appt a week from Monday to go to the DR and will most likely start Clomid since I am so irregular. Well, I take my AM temp each day and I know it rises when your perid is coming or when you are pregnant. It has been high since Feb 27 and still...
