I got an IUD about 10 months ago and I honestly don’t know how to self check it? I’m worried because my husband said a couple times that he can feel a poke which I’m guessing are the strings because he said it was soft. I’ve read about it and my obgyn said for me to check it every month to see if it’s still in place. But I’ve tried to myself and I can’t feel a thing. I’m under my husbands work ... More
Does anyone else feel like they got the short straw when it comes to affection from their kids. I wake up in the middle of the night with him, I play with him, feed him and ect. But when daddy gets home he scream in excitement and runs to him. When I get home, he looks at me and doesn't stop playing. Daddy ask for a kiss, he get one. I ask for one, he says no no no. Thanks son I feel the love. :(
I'm a SAHM and he works full time. I ask him to do something simple (well not that simple for him) like give our 2 year old a bath and he says no, I didn't give him enough notice. When I ask him to please sweep the living room floor instead, while I do the bath (thinking this will save some time and we can both get to bed at the same time after my son goes to bed) he says he will sweep ...

I had my son in April and I love being a mom but I constantly feel like I'm on edge. I'm stressed, angry, miserable, impatient, and full of anxiety. The only time I dont really feel that way is when I'm by myself with my little guy. Is this a normal thing and if so how long does it usually last?

I’m looking for advice in regards to other mom-friends. It looks like it’s so hard to get other moms to hang out with me in a friend situation (let’s getaway coffee, conversation without cartoon references) but other moms have no problem asking me to watch their kids (for free). I wouldn’t mind if they asked in advance and we were friends but we haven’t really established a friendship. Advice?
While I’m incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to stay at home with my baby (for however long - still figuring things out) I am struggling. From feeling isolated (not just from society but my friends who don’t understand my life), to feeling guilty every time we can’t afford something to feeling like I should be doing more more more and never acing one thing (or feeling like I am). Anyon... More
On Sunday we celebrated our son's first birthday but I had also had my last pump session that morning. My husband commented on how excited and happy I should be. In a way I had been looking forward to the end of feeling like a human dairy cow (I was an overproducer of milk and suffered mastitis, as well as clogged ducts). However, I have this sadness about this that I don't understand... More
