Anyone had a scheduled induction at 39 week for your first child? My doctor is giving me that option and recommending it since my baby is measuring small. Curious to hear your point of view!
Are there any mothers here who voluntarily gave primary custody to the kids father? I love my children fiercely but tbh I don’t think I’m cut out to be a single parent. Family and friends tell me I’m a great mom but at the end of the day having them on my own is exhausting and I end up just either letting them do whatever they want Bc I don’t feel strong enough to set a limit about it, or yelling at them. They’re 4 and 7 for reference. Please constructive responses only. Thank you!
Hubby wants to do 7-10 days baby moon in Portugal around 22-23 weeks. I am nervous as it is a different country. Doctor has said so far it is okay but will do a check before our trip to give a green light. Not sure if it is just me being overly cautious and thinking too much. Has anyone travelled international during pregnancy?

So my boyfriend and I live together, both work (he’s in sales not law). I make a decent $$$ by any means, but he makes double. He pays for rent, I pay for groceries/household things/all my own personal bills. Yet I feel he expects me to also do stay at home wife duties. I work 9-10 hrs per day, come home take care of the fur child, cook, clean. Yesterday he asked if I would descale the nespresso machine and I almost lost it LOL. How do I tell him he needs to help without sounding naggy
Do you think it’s worth waiting for Black Friday sale for strollers etc.? Or generally there are no discounts on baby stuff. Wondering if I should buy now or wait - baby is due in Jan.
Wife told me the other day, after a 70 hour week, that it's easier to think of herself as a single parent. That way she's less angry at my job or firm. I hate that she feels that way. 3 yrs & 4 mths.
I am hoping for some feedback from all the working mamas here. I am 1/2 through my pregnancy & my S/O has been getting progressively worse throughout my pregnancy.He’s been going out, drinking more, his mood is all over the place & it’s starting to scare me because I don’t want to bring our baby into the kind of environment I grew up in. I work FT, can support myself and have family help. How many others went through this and how do you handle it? Is getting out now best or am I just hormonal?

Of course my mother in law has an opinion about this.
My sister and brother in law are dealing with male factor infertility. My husband and I had our own infertility journey, so she shares a lot with me. They are Catholic, and he is firmly opposed to IVF, but a series of doctors have been clear that is their only option. While she is not opposed to adoption, she can't put aside the opportunity to be pregnant lightly, especially considering there is no indication of any issue on her side. Anyone been through something similar?

Does the addition of “(level) II” make a difference to anybody? I am the only marketing communications specialist for a lead child-welfare nonprofit. We oversee four counties in two circuits. Director recently gave me add’l merit-based raise (after my annual raise, been here 14 months) & slight title change to Marketing Comm Specialist II. No plans to add a level 1 (would be lower) specialist but will add level 1 engagement specialist to team. Should I update resume/cards or is this confusing?

How to deal with Rejections.? I know I'm not that good looking but even after 100% match with the profiles they are rejecting my profile. I'm only considering the profiles which are saying they want only a friend or they are not looking for perfect guy just understanding and respectful.

Please suggest how to deal with this. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

I'm writing a story of mine here, I thought I should share it with you guys. There is a girl in my organization where we became friends online. We started texting each other on a regular basis, after 4/5 months there came a turning point I felt I was not talking to her, she was just replying to my messages although for the initial 5 months we were really into each other We used to talk daily over chats. Now we will almost cross a 1 yr together. Further story in comments.

Anyone else feels like marriage has become complex matter now.
Most of the good people i am aware of are single.
We are too busy to get into touch with different people to have the love happen. So love marriage is not a scope.
And the way arrange marriage happens it is not working. Like they ask for package directly and it shows their priority. If we think practically money may matter but it should not be the first and only priority. And such thinking made us reject a proposal.
