What childhood trauma defined your personality/adult goals? I’ll start: always being the poorest in the room turned me into the 💵 and salary obsessed adult that I am today!
Is it normal that my husband thinks it’s ok to come home to sleep at night while im the hospital giving birth to our first child? He would obviously stay for the birth, but thinks it’s ok to come home and sleep that night and come back the next day. I think that’s insane, but curious if I’m overreacting
Ladies with no kids, please pick one. (Like the comment that resonates with you the most) 1) You genuinely see yourself as a future mother who wants to raise a baby or two and have a family of more than just you and your spouse 2) You just want kids because you feel like you'll be missing out/regret it later 3) You don't want kids
Do you believe the behavior we are witnessing this year is the new normal or will things return back to normal next year?
Ladies, any one here suffer from vaginismus? I have been diagnosed w vaginismus and been undergoing therapy for 6 years, I was finally able to get pregnant but really worried about giving birth with the condition. Looking for anyone w similar experience or any advice!
We just found out we lost our baby at 14 weeks; no heartbeat on the ultrasound today. D&C tomorrow. Husband and I are devastated, shocked, and don’t know what to do. Mamas who have been here, how did you heal? We don’t even know where to begin.
My mother in law asked to be in the delivery room when my wife gives birth. Is this normal? My gut reaction was "you absolutely may not."
I can’t tell anymore: are all married people miserable? Is it normal to think, ‘I can’t do this anymore’ when we’re alone? How do I reconcile that w/ my love for my child & their relationship?
Hi- looking for advice. Im 37 weeks and picked out my baby’s name. I knew my mil did not like it but I recently found out she hates it. Like it’s a continuous fight between my husband and her. Insisting that we change it but I just don’t like any other name as much. I’ve decided to have a conversation abt it and looking on tips how to handle respectfully. Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
I have been working from home so far this busy season and my wife is staying home with our 6 month old daughter. My wife really struggles to watch her during the day so I can focus on work, often she gets so aggravated and I end up taking care of our daughter so she can calm down. I just don't know how to handle it, my wife just gets more upset when we talk about things. She struggled with PPD early on and not sure if that could still be an issue. I would love any advice.
I recently returned to work after maternity leave and am on track to be promoted next year if I hit certain targets that includes lots of travel. Can’t decide if I want to push this year for that or be home more to be with my baby. I know there’s no right or wrong answer but those that faced this, what did you do and why? Anything you’d change?
30 F and found out I’m pregnant last night. I missed my last two periods and chalked it up to quarantine/stress. The guy is not in the picture at all and I’ve been on the biggest roller coaster of my life the past 24 hours. Seeking genuine advice, experiences, and truths about how this will likely go on my own. Much appreciated ❤️
Hi Ladies, How do you approach when your daughter (8) is invited to a sleepover/pool party at a hotel with other girls she’s friends with? I know the family a little from afar as our kids are in the same class/extracurricular activities but I don’t know them well. I’m going to assume the mom will be there but I just don’t know how to approach the convo without coming off weird.
How crucial is it to get along with your mother in law? I have been in a relationship for 4 years now and have heard his mother say the most awful things about his siblings spouses in their back, which led me to believe that she is certainly doing the same about me when I’m not in the room. I don’t trust her but my boyfriend glorifies her and wants me to spend time with her and feel like her second daughter. I am always polite when I meet her but again keep my guard up. Could this be a (cont)
So I basically eat like a child. Does anyone have a website or blog or something with recipes to follow? I can read, just don’t have the desire to spend the time cooking and I’m trying to change that.
Question on nanny wages. We’re in the northeast, currently paying $20/hr for our 2yr old . What would be an appropriate wage increase for 2 kids (baby #2 due in Aug)?
What’s your thought on a male colleague’s pursuit of spending more time with family given that (i) he’s in his twenties; (ii) he has a newly borne baby; (iii) his wife is a foreigner and does not have a salaried job. He decides to leave my current firm and if he does, his entire family will lose insurance. I personally found it very irresponsible but was told being wrong. So I want to know why I am wrong. This has bothered me for a while.
