I am all for equal rights and inclusion and diversity. If we are going to have real change. I need some insights from women fish. Why is it if the internet is down, computer or TV is acting up, it is my fault because I have a penis? This holds true from a diverse set of females - my mother, wife, daughter, etc. When is this inequality going to be addressed?
How did those with kids agree on baby names. The name my wife wants for our child is my best friends ex girlfriends name (bad breakup about 2 years ago). I can't see the name without thinking of this horrible person bc it's not that common of a name. Am I unreasonable for veto'ing this name?
Moms - Suggestions on where do you buy flowy or loose tops to wear post partum. Have a toddler so out and about most of the time but hate when someone enquires how many months pregnant I am .
Did you cave and give your kid a device way before they should have one/before their peers because you're a "techie" family?
Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
The babies that I bake fill a volcano. I’m clogging up the kill. My wretched baby paste requires Drano!

Daycare moms that nurse, what is your at routine? I want to get up before baby gets up but boobs are super full so taking a shower means so much leaking (sorry TMI!). Also do you feed solids before you leave or just pack it for daycare to feed?
Sooo I have forgotten how to express love! After having a baby a couple years ago, all I have been doing is chores. My way of expressing love to my husband is cooking, cleaning, taking care of the toddler. We split tasks equally so really there's nothing special about what I do. How do I express love again? What can I do to make him feel special and loved? PS: He did tell me once that he doesn't feel loved by me anymore. And I want to fix this. Help! Cont'd...

Grew up outside of US so no first hand experience with education system here. Does it make sense to send kid to private school if we can afford it? Our local public school is rated 7, should we consider moving to a 9 or 10 zone. Appreciate tips
TMI question, but i stopped nursing my second kid 2 years ago and I’m still producing a trickle of milk. Does this ever go away? I even had undersupply, so it’s not like I have bionic boobs!

I’m 6 weeks pregnant and have had a low grade fever (99-101) for the past 6 days with no other symptoms other than occasional chills. I have been on an antibiotic for 5 days assuming it was an asymptotic UTI but there has been no change. My GP and OB don’t know what is causing it. Has anyone else experienced a low grade fever while pregnant?
I feel like I wasted a morning. I’m pregnant, can’t focus on work, can’t take my adhd meds, in a new position with no support, and I’m nauseated all the time. I don’t know how to prioritize my work like I have in the past. Has anyone else been in this situation? Any tips?
