Went to party city with my husband to pick up baby shower deco and I just broke down and started crying in the store. I got sad realizing that we’re doing this ourselves and out of my friends and family no one thought to throw me a baby shower. Hubby was caught off guard he didn’t know what to do but hug me. I cried like a baby. I just didn’t think it bothered me, but I guess it did. I feel sad and lonely tbh. I’m always there for people but why can’t they be there for me too?

How normal is it to be pulled off a trial team because you tell your boss you are moving after trial? I have a trial coming up first week of Oct. This case has been my baby, and I’m going to try it with my boss. I tell my boss up front that, for family reasons, I’ve gotten a new job and will be moving to another city two weeks after trial will likely end. He then gives my trial witnesses to another attorney, but is still going to make me do grunt work. Is he unreasonable or am I?

I have really been working on myself to start dating and I met someone who seemed pretty cool, but within two dates dropped some massive baggage. His ex was pregnant and it turned out after it was born he found out it wasn’t his. I feel like he hasn’t really dealt with it, and he’s made some really uncomfortable comments about women that are slowly waving red flags, even though he doesn’t say anything directly about me. Would you have a conversation or run?

New mom here, need advice please - how are you moms thinking of managing child care with covid? The thought of leaving my child in daycare(without covid vaccination) is scary. I can’t even fathom how to handle my baby when traveling is back on. Am i being to paranoid?
Hi moms! I am about four months pregnant with my first, and getting a bit confused on baby registries and what not. Everyone around me has done it differently, some say to do multiple to get discounts / bundles, and then on top of all of it, I’m not even sure what to put on there ie the things new moms can’t live without. I just joined this bowl so im sure the question has been asked before so I apologize for the redundancy. - does anyone have a helpful place to start - website with most stuff?
Stupid question but am new mom… if my kid has an earache and fever and we can’t send him to daycare, is there backup daycare where they send someone to your home an option? Guessing not but just seeing if anyone had this experience …
