Congrats on your termie!! My doctor is doing all sorts of checks for me. She doesn't want me on mag right now because it makes me very sick and I am doing well to keep fluids down presently. She said we would revisit the issue once I can keep my cookies!

(( I just called her and asked about this magnesium business just now ))
OMG!! Happily adding to our beautiful family

Not to mention my husband who likes to pretend he's one of the kids
