Has anyone else had a hard time getting pregnant? My husband and I were passively (not keeping track of ovulation period etc) for about a year. I’m not on birth control nor do we use protection. I’m 28 years old btw
I already have mom guilt and my baby isn’t even due until May! 🥺 Constantly worried that I am going to look back in 15-20 years and be upset that I worked while she was growing up, but on the other side worried that if I don’t work we won’t be able to afford to give her the experiences we want her to have. How do moms deal with this?
Does anyone have two insurance policies for your family? My husband covers our family (he, I and baby) through his highdeductable plan along with HSA offered by his employer My new employer is offering generous HSA contribution, but changing to a new policy will reset our out of pocket spent this year to $0. Other option is to have two healthcare policies and not use mine and continue using my husband's Has anyone done this before? Any risks?
Hubs has tasked me with getting a last minute gift for SiL - she's SaH mom just had her 3rd kid - any ideas for good gifts that aren't all about the baby?
Did getting an HSG throw off anyone’s period? I got an HSG this month and now my period is 2 days late. I am traveling internationally so am unable to take a pregnancy test for a bit but I have been trying for 5 years (staring IVF next month) so the chances of me being pregnant are extremely slim.
Help! I found out that a guy I've met online and have been chatting with for a while now is married with a kid!! What can I do now? Block him? Confront him?! I feel so terrible.
One of my neighbors is a Qanon believer and other called my kid an oreo. My kid plays with both of their kids. I wish I could tell my wife but I'm afraid she won't handle it diplomatically and my kid could lose these friends. I don't live in fear but in light of the rise of the "Great Replacement" theory, I think she deserves to know. I just don't want the kids to be caught in the middle of it.
Hi Moms, We have planned for my daughter’s birthday party coming Saturday. Unfortunately, looks like the dress that I ordered for her is goanna be delivered only next Monday. Any recommendations on baby party dress boutique in the Bay Area? Online stores with express delivery works as well. Please suggest. Thank you!
Non-black person, Non-parent here. I am seeking recommendations from anyone willing to help. I volunteer in a Nyc nonprofit. I have a Black 16 year old girl I’m supporting. She’s loves to read. She loves beauty products. She’s struggles with self esteem and coping strategies. I’m putting a Christmas care package together for her. I want to include a book or two, skin/hair beauty products, some small gifts. Any recommendations for books, products, brands, this teen might love? Thank you!
I'd love to hear from Moms who's kids had a developmental delay, specifically speech. I called our states early intervention program today but I'm waiting to hear back. My daughter is 19 months today and maybe says 2 words, she babbles like crazy still but it's all nonsense. The doctor doesn't seem to have concerns in other developmental areas, she does all the gestures, points, waves etc. Walks just fine and eats like a champ. What else can I do? Did anyone have a good outcome with the programs
I am not American so I don’t understand how all this can happen. But question for the white folks. How do you guys feel when these black murders occur? Do you feel like you can’t do anything about it? Kinda like how you’d feel if you saw a world vision poster of a starving kid in say, africa? What do you think you can do or do you feel powerless just as the black people feel?
Hello my pregnant, previously pregnant, or otherwise sober friends: have any of you had luck finding a good brand of non-alcoholic wine? And if so, were you able to find it locally or did you have to order it? Bonus points if you have have a good recommendation for a dry white/bold red wine lover! I'm 16 weeks pregnant now but would love to indulge in some "wine" here and there 😊
Any paralegals out there that have worked for just awful attorneys? My previous supervising attorney would forge my notary signature, force me to work off the clock and while on vacation, and basically treated me like her personal assistant. I remember one time she asked me to watch her baby while she went into a client meeting. My favorite memory of all was when she made me drive to the office at 10 pm to see if her laptop was there. Good times.
Honestly, I’m done with covid. I’ve done all I can do, the rest is in God’s hands. Come at me telling me about how I don’t care about anyone but myself, x y and z. I quarantined, masked, vaxxed. What else can I do? I’m going to start living life like it’s 2019 again.
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
Fired today for being late to a handful of meetings. Relationship is in shambles and I don't see how this doesn't end in divorce. The things that were supposed to be positive and work out this year are vanishing and falling through. I feel like a complete and utter failure of a husband, partner, father, attorney, and man.
Has anyone used the abortion pill. I’m desperate, don’t want to be a single mother and not ready to be shamed. help😭
Project is asking me to travel the week my wife is due to have a baby or else get an exemption from HR. Is this normal or is my firm just not supportive? KPMG if anyone is looking to join.
