Thinking about getting animal crossing for my kids - what’s the minimum age y’all would recommend? I get that anyone can fish or catch bugs, but will a child get frustrated when they’re not getting blue roses because they don’t know punnet squares?
What's the real reason white people leave the pool when a black person gets in? It happened to me when I was a kid and now I'm watching it happen to my kids. They even disperse when we show up to the park. I'm sure kids will ask soon. My mom told me some people still equate black with dirt but I thought that school of thought was in decline.
I am failing to control my 3.5 year old’s behavior issues, he breaks things, throws stuff and finds it funny. I have tried keeping his favorite toy away each time he doesn’t behave, but nothing seems to work. He gets cranky and does things like spitting, hitting his 7 month old baby sister. I am really concerned about his behavior, any suggestions? I heard about behavior therapy (counseling) any ideas on that? Would love to hear if anything you tried and worked. Thanks a lot
I’m returning back to work this week from maternity leave and wondering what to do as far as nursing/pumping. Our 5 month old isn’t on a schedule right now and nurses on demand (every ~2 hrs or so). My husband will be watching him for the next few weeks, followed by a nanny so I could continue nursing. Do you think it would be better to try and put baby on a schedule and block off time for nursing? Is it realistic to nurse on demand while working? Switch to pumping?

Weirdest interview? Mine: female interviewer breastfeeds her child during the whole interview 😳
CMV: free food in big tech is the best perk. Being able to walk into effectively 5+ tasty, healthy, no-queue no-faff restaurants in central London for lunch or dinner is the kind of luxury I'm not sure what level of money would be needed to access.
Never again in my life will I surrender to the pallid squalor of having to wait for or cook my meals. Rest and vest baby!

What number of eggs would you be satisfied with? I froze 12 eggs at 34. I’m now 36 and wondering if I should do another retrieval. 🤔
Does anyone know if you can use retinol while going through egg freezing? Context: Im thinking about starting up retinol, but also thinking about freezing eggs in the next 6 months (i still havent found a fertility clinic). If im going to need to stop retinol during the egg freezing process, id rather just not start it yet
Accenture women- anyone know if elective egg freezing is covered? Going thru the process of asking BCBS now but it’s such a roundabout process!
Looking for IUI success stories. Going for my first natural IUI next week and hoping it works . Haven’t heard natural IUI success story from anyone yet so looking for some hope here..
Hi all. Thank you for sharing your journeys, it’s really helpful to read and feel a little less lonely. We had a 5 day FET and it worked. We are 7.5 weeks a long. We transferred 2 embryos and so far it’s a twin pregnancy. We are very happy as it has been a long road. I have been experiencing cramping and some bleeding and discharge. Had 2 ultrasounds so far and things are well. But the cramping, spotting and discharge makes me nervous. Any words of wisdom?
I am a IVF warrior who is still waiting for the 2 pink lines. As offices reopen and we start going back to offices, I have been having a lot of corridor conversations about kids, babies, pregnancies which IS part and parcel of all human lives and completely normal. Working from home for the past 2 years definitely shielded me from those situations where I didn’t have to congratulate someone with a huge smile and big hug while bawling on the inside .. wondering .. continued..

Failed second round of Clomid + timed intercourse. Husband has normal semen analysis but we’re thinking IUI next. I have low ovarian reserve and don’t regularly ovulate on my own. Thinking about taking a month break to get my TSH under control.

Anyone know what level of exercise is okay during various parts of IVF? I had my first retrieval a week ago and I’m waiting on results to determine if we do another retrieval or do a transfer. I’d like to start doing Pilates, but I’m not sure if this is a bad time to try something like that. I know not to exercise right around retrieval because of the ovarian torsion risks but wasn’t sure if this is a larger time period I should be taking it easy during. TIA!
About to start egg freezing, the fertility medications are very expensive via CVS specialty pharmacy. Has anyone used any cheaper pharmacy? ￼￼
Thoughts on ICSI versus the usual IVF method of insemination? My doctor is suggesting 50/50. No known Sperm motility issues on our end. I did some research online but would love to learn of your experience with this. Thank you.
My wife and I just finished the IVF cycle and there was no implantation. We’re bummed out a bit. I’m 42 and she’s 40. Her something number is .6 what I understand to be super low. Anyway, it’s super emotional but I find myself more angry than anything else… I’ve wanted to have kids for the last 10 years and she kept putting it off. Put an iud in without talking to me about it, and insisted that we couldn’t get pregnant until she was ready. I feel like she took my future from me by delaying until
Has anyone else talked to a doctor about stress while trying to conceive? I’ve been having a really hard time wanting a baby for the way my husband and I have been arguing or talking to each other. I think we should go to counseling. I know I love him and I know he loves me- there’s just so much animosity so much anxiety around discussions. Do you think our anxiety or tension is because we have not been able to conceive?
