Thanks! I like the idea of consumables in favor bags. I think we will do that this year. His birthday is 4 days after my due date. I am anticipating being exhausted (either with a...
Since you have already missed your period, I don't think you are testing too early. You are supposed to be able to test the first day of your missed period, especially if it is a doctors office blood...
We have always said, "please no gifts" at Levin's birthdays. This doesn't stop family, but they at least don't give things at the actual party and it does cut down on the pile of presents.
Have you been to the doctor yet? That would be my next step, with the symptoms you describe.

I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Have you spoken with your doctor about how your cycles have changed?
I'm glad you have the cheap tests! The drugstore ones are so expensive,...

1) Are you sure you are testing at the right time? It's not supposed to be first thing in the morning, unlike pregnancy tests. That really confused me at first.
2) Buy a bunch of cheap tests (you...
Whoa! That is extreme. My husband has 2 older sisters who both have kids, and I do think we are benefitting from them laying down the law about gifts.
It sounds like your mom...
Our son will be four this November, to put all of this in context.
No, we don't police gift-giving at all. When grandparents ask what our son would like for Christmas or birthday, we always ask...
Sorry, duplicate post

Congratulations on number 5! This will be my first time giving birth, so I don't really know how it will go. Yes, they do offer water births. There is a tub in each room for that.

Thank you, Blade!
I'm so sorry for your loss.
I read somewhere recently that in 1920 (before widespread legal and effective contraception) that the average mother was 42 when her youngest child was born. It is...

We formula fed our son. We are on city water so we just used tap water, it was fine. No need to boil, which you are supposed to for well water.
The doctor did mention that if we had a well, we...

If you don't want to have children, don't have any. If you are not sure you want kids, don't have any until you are sure. There are many adults who are child-free nowadays. Some of our friends are...

Thank you! I will definitely do more research on it, then. Can you recommend any resources about this in particular? I really don't want to take any unnecessary risks with the pain control,...

No, I wouldn't choose an Alise over a Brittany, but I agree with orchid_lover that I would find it strange if my doula went by a different name in professional v. personal life. I don't know if that...

We have friends from India who have a huge bathtub and they do family baths. As in the whole family- mom, dad, and kids. It's not weird, it's completely normal culturally. I have heard that families...

Thanks! It is very encouraging to hear that you were able to deliver twins with just nitrous oxide!

Wow, your OB sounds like a real peach! Raising a boy is completely awesome. I am sure that raising girls is also awesome, I just feel like there is this weird idea that boys are so much...
This was in Vancouver. They said they were fine with not finding out, just annoyed by the assumption based on his nationality.
I have heard that some techs here won't reveal the sex...

I agree you should not use a name that your husband is just going along with. You want him to love her name as well. Now, maybe he will meet her and instantly think Eden is just perfect for her. That...
Did you have the sex scan in China and were allowed to find out bc you aren't Chinese? Or did you just do it in Iran? I have a friend who had the anatomy scan when she was living in...
Have any of them run their prospective baby names by you first? I am guessing not. I would be tempted to point that out. I know family can be fraught, though, so I would just react as if they were...
Though it's hard to know which way this will go for you, I have known women for whom the hormonal surge of pregnancy/lactation kind of evens out their anxiety issues. At least till they stop...
We found out with this baby. Neither my husband nor I cared. We like to say we are fine either way as long as its cute (kidding!) But our 3 1/2 year old desperately wanted a sister. I don't really...
