I planned my meals and got into a good diet plan not with the goal of loosing weight but with the goal of healthy balanced diet with optimal cheat meals sprinkled. Understood how my body reacts to various food types and boundaries of moderation. Optimal balanced schedule for yourself your sleep and your baby's schedule. Read books you are never going to get another time like this. Cook your heart out, I did because I believe in expression of love thru food for my child and getting my skills up for when they start eating solids. Take a vacation with your SO, We took 2. Most importantly disconnect from work

Sleep.

Do you have childcare options during that time?

I’m keen to get in the best health possible (sleep, diet, exercise) given the circumstances of having a newborn.

Take a nap every minute you can. You will need it.

Party like it’s 1999?

You won’t sleep. Try to take a shower every day and eat something. wonder what the hell you’ve done. This goes whether you birthed that baby or not.

Pregnant wife is having small portion meals lately, so i asked why she is eating less than usual. She read somewhere that eating too much can lead to oversized baby, making the delivery more painful, so it looks like she may be controlling the portion because of this. Is not eating enough a cause for concern?

So I feel I must do a shoutout to this bowl.. I had my first child when I was 17 worked my ass off and finished my masters. I ended up at Accenture in an internal role when I was invited to fb.

Through a series of detours and chance I’m leaving for a tc of 250. I realize to many people on this app is not a lot but to me it

Hello Childfree Friends!

Question (slightly grim but I intend for it to be lighthearted)— what do people without kids plan on doing with their estate/ wealth once you’re sniffing the daisies?

People always talk about how they’re “working to leave something for the kids” and unfortunately I don’t think my fur baby legally counts.

It’s been something on my mind lately & I’d love to hear what others who are child-free are planning. There’s obviously spouse, parents, siblings, but what else?
