    The boards have been quiet! I suspect it's b/c there's no easy way to get there from BDC's new homepage. I know I could just bookmark it but, really, who thinks that far ahead? :-) Sorry to all of you more »

    Happy birthday to Summer's DD, and sorry to all who are dealing with the Terrible Twos. I'm right there with you, though I think as DS (2.5) gets more and more verbal it's morphing into the Terrible T more »

    I'm so sorry, Clc! Good that you're taking it better this time around, but I know it's never easy. Hopefully they'll be able to tell you something from the tests.

    Thanks, Med and Clc! I think we will make the turn this weekend, so he has some time to get used to it. I'll let you know how it goes!

    Summer -- Thanks, GL and let me know how it goes!  Med -- Thanks! I will double-check, but I don't think height is an issue (he's even shorter than he is lightweight!). I actually don't remember seein more »

    Hi Clc! I'm ready to jump on the TTC train, finally!  Sorry to hear that you've been struggling, and that you'll have to wait for January for any help from your doc. Hoping something happens for you b more »

    Ah, the difficulties in finding these boards with BDC's annoying new layout have kept me away! Happy birthday to the 2 year-olds, and Northern, glad to hear your adjusting well to being back at work! more »

    It's going to take awhile for me to catch up on posts -- Is there an easier way to find these than searching "forums?" I suppose I can bookmark, but I like having an easy navigation option! I am so si more »

    I have a couple of questions for all of you about potty training. Last night, DS peed on the potty for the first time, to much fanfare from DH and I, who were both sitting in the bathroom with him bec more »

    Yeah, the language thing makes sense to me, based on my DS. I thought the sleep disruptions/clinginess were only related to physical milestones like crawling or walking, but in my experience it seems more »

    Poppy, we went through a few phases of this with my DS around this age, all thankfully pretty short-lived. I think the most recent one coincided with a language explosion. I think it was around that t more »

    Congrats, Northern!  Chiclet, go to a good shoe store (not sure where you're located but I go to Abbott's in North Reading -- they're great) and ask them for help. There is a particular kind of toddle more »

    It was me asking about dentists, and thanks for the tips! We supposedly have a good pediatric practice near me, so I think I might just bring DS (2) for an introductory appointment to ease my mind. Ma more »

    Thanks, all! Cwag, I'm going to try making it into a game - he usually responds well to stuff like that when he's resisting diaper changes, etc. And I might take your advice, Summer, and take him to a more »

    ALS - So scary! Glad she's okay! WPP - Congrats on the move! I grew up in NH and Concord is lovely. I am stressing over DS's teeth. He turned 2 last month, and we've been brushing his teeth for the be more »

    Memes, no great advice from me, but FWIW, I remember posting something similar when DS was around this age. I agree with Med that it may be a developmental stage. I don't know the psychology around it more »

  • Posted 03/06/2014 08:24:21 EST

    It sounds like you guys need to stop trying for awhile and seek some counseling. Yes, trying to conceive is stressful, but you should both be trying to be a team, not blaming each other and talking ab more »

    I feel your pain, Summer! DS is obsessed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He's even more relentless about wanting to watch cat videos on YouTube (thanks to DH) and videos of himself on our iPad (little na more »

    Thanks, IPW - I didn't think to check on that! It is AFLAC I'm thinking of getting, and though I expect it'll be more than a year, I would be pretty PO'ed if I got pg early and was ineligible.  I did more »

    Clc, so sorry about the stomach bug! Med - sorry DS has been sick! We're back in cold and stomach bug land over here, too. Will winter EVER end? My DS definitely eats more variety in a group setting w more »

    Kat - Hope next month brings good news for you! DH and I are kind of delaying full-fledged trying for a few more months. We have a bunch of stuff coming up that it would be better if I weren't pg for more »

    In response to clc51510's comment: My DS can generally play independently for 15-20 minutes.  Sometimes more but he often wants me in the room.  He has a playroom with most of his toys in it and often more »

    Thanks for the feedback, all. Good to know this is normal, and will pass! I do wonder if it's developmental. DS is acquiring new words pretty rapidly and becoming somewhat interested in the potty (tho more »

    Ctown, it really sounds like you've tried everything. Hopefully the method this morning continues to work! 4:45 really is too early (I say even as someone who gets up at that hour for work!). I don't more »

    Since I've officially taken my last bc pill, I'm jumping on here. My DS will be 2 next month, and I have all intentions of being more "relaxed" (ha!) this time around TTC, but now that I'm officially more »
