About Me: 40 yrs old, DH is 41. I have a diminished ovarian reserve (and hate that term). Married 4/07, been ttc since 10/07, had 3 failed IUI's and 2 IVF's before getting a BFP on our own (a miracle in our opinion!). Healthy baby born in 3/10. Now ttc #2, probably with DE.

    summer, it's good to vent about that type of stuff here. My guess is that they are in a totally different mindframe than you and can't really related to the whole baby thing. Hopefully, they will show more »

    CT - my husband grumbles when ds is home sick, there's a holiday or we go away on vacation for a few days and we still have to pay for a full week. I then always say to him "Do you expect to get paid more »

    24 weeks today and I need to figure some things out. I'm not sure if you'll be able to help since I think most of you moms of twins do not have older sibs for the twins, but I need to ask and hopefull more »

    Thanks everyone! Miss Lily, maybe we can meet at one of the MOT meetings? I think, besides the gear you can get, it would be helpful for me to meet other MOT moms for support/advice. CT, ds turns 2 in more »

    Small daycare center (they are a mother-daughter run center with 2 locations) for 5 days a week in Southboro was something like $380/wk and the toddler room is $340/week. That includes diapers, wipes, more »

    Daisy, I know au pairs are less expensive, but #1) we don't have an extra bedroom and #2) I'm not into having someone else living with us. My IL's in CA have one and they love it, but I just can't do more »

    We're starting to consider nannies since I'm pregnant again. I was wondering what the typical nanny costs for 5 days a week in the metrowest area. Do they charge by the child? more »
