    We went through flood insurance drama when buying our first home last summer. Previous owners were not in a flood zone, our bank said we were. The cost is unbelievable. When is your letter from FEMA f more »

    I don't have any advice but I just wanted to join the pity party! I am only 25 weeks and already over this pregnancy. And I LOVED being pregnant the first time around. I think taking care of another c more »

    Thanks so much to everyone who has responded. It looks like there are a lot of different opinions out there and it has definitely given me a lot to think about. I'd love to have this settled before I more »

    Thanks Stefani. I work for a large company. I'd like to talk to my boss before I talk to HR because I'd hate for him to hear from anyone other than me of my request. Does HR have to keep any discussio more »

    Looking for some advice on requesting to return to work part-time after my second child is due this spring. Does anyone have any experience either requesting this or from a HR perspective? My plan is more »

    I should add that we do have a PnP and that I think it is a "must have" baby item (and I think a lot of baby/kid stuff is totally unnecessary). We now keep ours in the trunk of our car so we have it f more »

    I second MyFitnessPal. It's free and the food log feature is super easy to use. I've yet to search for a food and not been able to find it - even from restaurants.

    Thanks everyone for all your responses regarding cramping. It's really reassuring to hear from others who have been through it. It subsided about two weeks ago and I had my 8 week ultrasound and appoi more »

    Thanks MissWolff. That is reassuring. It's hard because I've read that it's normal but also can be the first sign of miscarriage or eptopic pregnancy.  As far as having no symptoms, I honestly had zer more »

    Thanks misslily and stefani. I know his inability to sleep through the night has partially been my fault. We never sleep trained before 8 months because I never thought we had to. He has always fallen more »

    Thanks Luck. That is what I am afraid of now - starting bad habits. I just don't know how long he would stand up and cry for if he can't get back down. My biggest issue is that he seems to be wide awa more »

    Thanks everyone! This is very helpful. I think the thing to do is probably lie him back down without taking him out of the crib. Poppy, I do think what you did would work for him. I'll just plan to st more »
