9 weeks pregnant and I officially miss wine. A nice crisp chilled white or a deep red in the evening. Sigh.....
26 weeks pregnant with twins and could use a pep talk to get through the next 12 weeks! Any life hacks or tips for surviving the 3rd trimester at work and in general?
Now that my wife is pregnant, I’ve been thinking about the discussions around abortion a lot more. Seeing how developed the ultrasounds are after about week 13, has me thinking that abortions past 15 weeks should be for certain cases only (medical for fetus or mother etc). Isn’t this just a common sense approach? What’s the argument against this?

12 weeks pregnant and just broke my pinky toe today. As if sleeping or walking comfortably wasn’t hard enough! Add to that my 2 yr old about to be very sad I am not holding him as much. Starting house hunting tomorrow too, hopefully crutches are helpful. Also my husband already does so much for us and this just adds to it all.... and xray risks to fetus I’ll now worry about. What a day (read: next few weeks)!

My toddler brought home a stomach bug. He’s totally fine, but I’m 13 weeks pregnant and down 5 pounds in one day from all of the getting sick. Any remedies for me? Every medicine I’m looking into says it’s not safe during pregnancy. 😩

Is there a difference between 250k salary and 400k salary? Both salaries are watching spiderman on opening night. Both salaries have food on the table and a roof over their heads. One has a 65in tv vs the other has 75in. One drives a BMW the other a Tesla. I make around 250k and to increase my salary I will have to work a lot more. Is it really worth having more money, at some point it is just a number and quality of life doesn't improve. In fact it could be worse with the extra hours.
