When should I present this recording to my niece?

A while back my sister left a message on my mom's answering machine, saying "Hi mom, we had a baby girl..." and then she goes on to describe the birth of her daughter and how cute she was, basically leaving an audio record of this wonderful occasion. For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to save this recording. [more inside]

Weight and fat gain coming off Mercilon - need help sorting this out!

Been on Mercilon contraceptive pill for years. Have come off and almost immediately gained 2 kg (in 3 weeks) and when I weigh on my fat measuring scales my fat content has shot up. a) has anyone else had this on this particular Pill, b) do I have to work on the weight gain like you normall would (limit calories in, maximise calories out) or will it balance on its own. I was on a blood pressure pill while on the pill, thought it was that that was taking advantage of increasing my weight (my usual side effect on bp meds) so came off that and bp is fine. But weight still going up. Have seen this http://ask.metafilter.com/74594/How-long-does-it-take-for-the-hormones-to-leave-my-system but is not specific about this pill / how to get the weight off / the fat thing. Anonymous as a bit personal for me! [more inside]

Privacy, disclosure and past medical records

Is there any medical reason to disclose a past abortion (uncomplicated, several years ago, at 8 weeks) to my new OB-Gyn, who will (hopefully) be ushering me through a successful pregnancy and birth? There is no existing medical record that I know of, since the procedure was done at a clinic in another state, and wasn't claimed on insurance, because I didn't have any at the time.
