I’m 8 months postpartum and got my period back at 5 months and they have been regular ever since. This month I am now 7 days late and have taken pregnancy tests and all negative. Has anyone experienced just a missed period. I am still exclusively breastfeeding my daughter
I’m a SAHM with 5 month old twins and an almost 3 year old. I’m an introvert and need time alone to rejuvenate. I haven’t had time alone for so long yet I feel so alone in life. I used to have a career I worked really hard for, including 2 graduate degrees, and had an office where I worked on paperwork alone much of the day. I remember I used to feel lonely but now I miss that so much. I don’t ... More
So, I’ve been trying to connect with other moms in my area but it is harder than I thought 😥 normally I’m not one for a sappy day or tears but it’s been so hard having my husband states away and being home feeling like all I get to see are our kids and the walls of our home 😥. I am at a breaking point most of the time and I don’t think it’s fair to my babies that mommy wants to lay in bed most... More
Planning baby number two and I can’t get over the pressure of breast feeding. My first didn’t have a problem with breast feeding but it just wasn’t for me honestly. The day I gave him formula my mood changed, his mood changed, it felt like such a huge relief. I feel so guilty for not wanting to with my second.... the first question people ask is “are you breastfeeding?” I’d feel like such a fai... More
Im 4 weeks away from my due date and just a little curious on what will go on after little one is delivered. will there be a million tests done on baby? I know they will do the heel test, hearing test and carseat test before releasing us but are there more im missing? Will i have to worry about blood/ urine testing while in labor? No one seems to post about what goes on after baby is delivered ... More
What’s the cause? Did it go away fast? Thank you.
So son is 17 months and we only breastfeed at night when we sleep and then again when he gets up in the morning. So it’s only about 2 times..... maybe 3 times a day. Anyways he really prefers my right breast. Not my left. My question is that, if I stop the feedings will my boob shrink? Like the size difference is very noticeable in sports bras or if I point it out. My right is like a C cup whi... More
Mommas! I need to find a good product that will curl my hair. I have very straight hair and when I try to curl it, it won’t stay curled. I have tried hair spray -no luck! I have done over night rolls and they seem to work for two hours and curls fall after that. I have tried the wand and it burned my hair and the curl never stayed. I need help finding a good product! Open for advice on this! T... More
It'll stop for a few days, and then start right back up for a month.. Is this normal whatsoever? Has anyone else experienced it this bad? I am terrified it's going to reduce my chance of having more kids.. Which is why I chose this method was to reduce the possibility of other birth controls making it harder for me to have more. Help please 😔
I had my first child 4 1/2 years ago and I noticed every period afterwards I could only use tampons the first and 2nd days of my period. I just had my 2nd child 7 months ago and now trying to use tampons during my period and I end up pulling it out minutes later. They are so uncomfortable that it hurts! I never used to have problems before I had my children. Has anyone else had that problem?
I gave birth to my son November 4th. I’ve had very light spotting for two days a few weeks ago but nothing since. I could only nurse my son for a month because of milk allergy.
I’m 27 weeks pregnant and considering switching from my current obgyn. I’m high risk, and thus would need to switch to a high risk doctor. Does anyone have experience with either Village Obstetrics or MFM associates? Both were recommended to me but I don’t know much about either practice. This would also force me to switch from NY Presbyterian / Weill Cornell to Mt Sinai, so any experience with... More
I've started the process of drying up my milk. I was already nursing my 9 month old on a 4 hour feeding schedule (he sleeps through the night, so it was basically 4 feedings a day). Last week I nursed him morning and bedtime, gave him bottles for the middle two, and only pumped once during. Then for about three days I dropped the midday pump, and then dropped the morning feeding. I offical... More
Is anyone on the Depo shot or have been? My son was just born in June and I wanted a bc that I didn’t have to worry about taking everyday and I didn’t want anything implanted in me so I gave the depo a try. My doc said that I should do pretty well with the depo (because I was always on the mini pill beforehand and I never had a problem with it) because the depo and mini pill have same hormones.... More
Hi, I know a lot of moms stop BF after first birthday. But me and my baby are not ready to give that up. Was wondering if there are moms out there who continue to BF beyond 1st bday. Was/is your baby eating a lot of solid food? Because my is not a big eater she still mostly relies on boobie.
Ladies please advice. I am a full time medical student and I still breastfeed my 10month old. When I put her down I need to start studying but I am so tired I fall asleep shortly after. Any tips for staying awake? I can’t drink too much coffee, because my baby still bf during night and I don’t want to keep her up.... how do you stay awake after putting your baby to sleep? 😭
