I unexpectedly found myself pregnant with twins a couple of days back. My husband and I have a toddler already. Since I have always wanted a second kid, just not so soon, I embraced the pregnancy. But now I have doubts whether this is the right decision for me to continue with the pregnancy ( I am scared whether I can handle twins and I am in the middle of a career change - timing was not planned). Would love to hear of any of your similar stories. Thank you!
Did anyone get a 4th COVID vaccine during pregnancy? I already have 3 from pre-pregnancy but I feel hesitant about the next booster since I’m pregnant. I’m due in Nov which is ultimate germ season so I can see why it would be good but equally I don’t feel as comfortable having it pregnant. I also caught COVID in June for the first time so 🤷🏽♀️

I’m excited but extremely overwhelmed and nervous by the whole procedure. Any feedback would help!

Hi ladies, I'm in my mid 40s and I think I'm entering peri. I currently have a Mirena but I should replace it again soon, but one more will put me into my 50s(!!) and I was wondering if anyone here knows that they're in peri or menopause without having periods.

I've been working remotely for the past two years, and it's been great. I love working from home and being able to watch my kids grow up through their eyes as they play around me. But sometimes, when you're in this kind of situation, it's hard to know what to talk about with your coworkers.
Have a question to Asians here. I’m mid-30s from Asia and am making lower end of 6 figures currently. My older sister was making more than I did until a few months back and lost one job due to covid so is now not making much. But she is married and has a house and a car of her own. She spends a lot of money on herself and buys gifts to her boyfriends/lovers. I just found out mom is going through major surgery in my home country and it costs nearly 6k. I asked if she wanted us to help her pay.
