    For anyone who is done, do you have this pregnancy nostaligia I can't seem to shake? Posted by ml2620-2 No.  Not even a little bit!  :) I had a very healthy, easy pregnancy, and I'm grateful for that more »

    DH and I are in the "one and done" club.  We had decided even before we got married that we both only wanted one child.  He's 11 years older than I am, and he didn't really want to be having more kids more »

    Unfortunately I think it's impossible to live a calm, balanced life as a parent these days.  Between mortgages, car payments, health care, child care, etc., it's really tough to get by on one income.  more »

    Happy Mother's Day everyone!  What are your plans?  What do you want for Mother's Day? I'm dropping DD off with my Dad in the morning, and my Mom and I are going to a class at her gym and then to brun more »

    ml, that's great that you and your DH have worked things out that way!  It must make him feel good to know that he always has a night where he's free to get out for awhile if he wants to.  DH has gone more »

    I hate to hear that so many of you are going through the same thing, but at the same time it makes me feel better that I'm not alone!  Last night we got to spend some time together, and even though we more »

    Canuk, your situation sounds very similar to mine.  We both know that we haven't spent much time together and we need to work on it, but we don't know how.  Or we don't want to; I'm not sure which it more »

    Fram, I'm not sure how comfortable you'd be with it, but we don't use a baby monitor at all.  DD's room is right across from ours so her crib is probably only about 10 steps from our bed.  We just lea more »

    How did your relationship with DH/SO change after the baby?  Did it get better?  Worse?  About the same? DH and I are struggling a little with this a bit lately.  We work opposite schedules which is g more »

    Sprout, I think I also dropped around 34 or 35 weeks.  All the sudden my clothes fit differently and everyone commented that I was carrying lower.  Everyone thought I would go before my due date, but more »

    Trouble, Happy Birthday to your baby girl! DD had her 2 month appointment today.  She's a happy, healthy girl, and she took the shots like a champ, but it was still heartbreaking for me!  It's funny.. more »

    Wow, lots of great opinions and things to think about!  Apparently a lot of us are in the same boat with this.  I know DH definitely doesn't care about having DD baptized, he just doesn't want to upse more »

    Specifically for the non-religious ladies -- did you have your baby baptized?  DH is Catholic and not practicing, and I was baptized and did the First Communion but was never confirmed and I consider more »

    Happy Friday ladies! I'm curious -- how long did it take for you to be comfortable letting people watch your kids?  DD is 6 and 1/2 weeks, and I couldn't even think of leaving her with anyone yet, inc more »

    My mom bought DD the Carter's Soothing Sounds Bear -- I think he's pretty much the same as the sleep sheep.  He plays the heartbeat, wind, ocean, and rain sounds, and velcroes right onto the crib.  DD more »

    ml, I'll start by saying you're definitely not alone; I think all new moms have felt this way to some degree, at one time or another. Technically PPD is depression that starts within one year of givin more »

    Do any of you have any babies that hate being swaddled?  DD always sleeps with one or both hands up by her head, so she doesn't like having them swaddled at all.  She doesn't seem to like having her l more »

    Fram, my DD follows the exact same pattern, so I wouldn't worry too much.  She goes down around 9ish every night just because that's when she happens to pass out.  She's usually up by 7, getting up on more »

    Boston, congrats on your baby boy!  I'm sorry things didn't go as planned, and it must have been VERY scary there for awhile, but I'm so happy to hear that everyone is doing well now! Wed and Sprout, more »

    ml, my heart breaks for you!  DD is only 5 weeks and isn't doing much right now so although it's hard to be away from her, I can handle it.  It's going to be a lot harder when she's hitting milestones more »

    IPW, I'm so sorry to hear about your MIL taking DS to have his photos done.  I'd be so upset.  Unfortunately I think I'm going to be dealing with a lot of similar situations with my MIL -- DD is only more »

    Poppy, I have the Baby Trend Expedition, and though we haven't really used it outside yet, it seems pretty good.  DD is only 5 weeks but we bought an infant insert so we can use it when it warms up a more »

    SAW, how did you go about changing DS's schedule so he went to bed later?  Right now DD goes to bed around 9 - 9:30, simply because that's just what she's done on her own for the past few weeks, so we more »

    I know most men don't interact well with babies, but DH has always been the total opposite!  He's one of those rare men that just LOVES babies.  And he has experience with kids, since he helped raise more »

    Thank you for your input.  It especially helps to hear from someone who's been in his position before.  Like I said, I don't want to come across like I'm criticizing him or that he's not entitled to m more »
