Dating while CF: when do you usually bring it up? I feel like talking about kids in general on a first date can seem too presumptuous. But this is also an issue that’s important - you can’t compromise and have half a kid lol. What has worked for you so far?
Wife wants another kid, I don’t. One I just don’t and two we haven’t been connecting lately so it doesn’t make sense to me. She’s threatened to leave me if I don’t want another kid and do what she can to keep our full time. I haven’t missed any moments of my child’s life and don’t intend on ever doing so. She also want me to spend a couple grand to go to a destination wedding for her friend that I loathe and threw a fit until I caved in. I’m exhausted!!!
Fish Parents— we’re making some budgeting models for future kids/when we can retire etc. How much per year per kid have you been spending on sports/activities? I have no idea how much to estimate for that section of our spreadsheet. I’d assume they’ll be involved in avg of 2 sports/activities ever year? Idk. Just looking for rough guidance.

Anyone have good recommendations for workout programs for pregnant mamas? I know there’s a ton of prenatal yoga programs (including on peloton), but curious if anyone has come across a program/app for women to do weight lifting, light cardio etc... similar to non-pregnant programs. Of course I guess you could use the non-pregnant ones too (assuming it’s ok with the dr) 🙃 feels like there’s a market for this...
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?
Wondering if any moms experienced this... Baby is one week old and recently started sucking on bottle really fast and breathing heavy while feeding. It’s almost as if he has not eaten in a long time but that’s not the case. He eats every 2-3 hours about 1.5-2oz. Last night he freaked me out about it and I called pediatrician and she mentioned periodic breathing (which is normal) and then suggested giving him nasal spray to help. Have any of you experienced this?..
