Did anyone experience this postpartum? And how long did it last? I want my 4 day period back!!!
Almost at 9 months and still haven't had my first period yet. I am on a birth control pill while breastfeeding- just started this month. I've taken a pregnancy test - negative. This was my first pregnancy. We had wanted to start trying for Baby#2 at a year. Should I be concerned? How long did you wait till you had a period after delivering?
Any fixes for complete loss of sex drive? I love my husband and am attracted to him but I can't get myself to want sex even a little. I'm EBF and postpartum 4 months. I'm tired of the fights it's causing plus I think it just makes my husband feel sad :( any suggestions would be appreciated
For those who have gone through and are going through, postpartum depression and/or anxiety, did you have resources readily available to you? Or did you have to fend for yourself? Ie find a counselor by yourself, figure out what was covered by insurance..etc. I was fortunate to have worked at a mental health clinic and my ob-gyn, so I knew where I could go for help. But if I hadn’t, I would ha... More
I’m recently a stay at home mom looking to scrap together any money I can, I’m very crafty but lost my imagination years ago so looking to anyone out there with suggestions on what they’d buy? I’d like to make binky/pacifier clips I’m also a pretty good artist and thought of doing monogrammed nursery pantings/illustrations of animals but I just feel like people don’t buy art really much and .....

I am 7 months postpartum, and still have little to no drive. I am still breastfeeding, so I know that has something to do with it hormonally. This was the same with our first child. When I went to the doctor after first baby I talked with him about that and how I would get angry easily. He said it's probably just loss if sleep and that will change with more sleep. After our second child, I&... More
Any of you moms are taking any online college courses while being a mommy to more than one child? I have 4 children (5,6,2,1) all boys. I am contemplating returning to college and need some advice on how to manage school and small children. Afraid I won’t be able to do both but I wanna really try... any advice will be greatly appreciated
My husband and I are just starting to tell people we are pregnant. I am surprised by my mom friend responses. “Are you taking organic vitamins? I can’t believe you’re working out while pregnant...why are you telling people so soon...” the comments go on. What the heck? Is this normal?
Does anyone else feel like this? I don’t really have any mom friends so when my friends invite me out, I have to either bring the baby or find someone to watch her. I don’t have too many ppl that I trust to watch her an most of the time I have to bring her with me. Today I actually wanted to go this event but of course no kids allowed but i didn’t find out until I got to the place. So I actua... More
So I chose to be a FTM as I truly believe in the importance of being present for my babies until they are at school. I do my best, though I’m now having to admit to myself that I am just not a talented Home Maker. I’m not organised, so I often don’t get laundry done on time, or I don’t get to properly brush my toddler’s big hair, or my infant’s bedtime routine has to suffer as I struggle to get... More
I’m noticing that I’m angry a lot. I usually (before baby) am a very happy person. Having a baby has been the greatest joy and blessing that’s ever occurred in my life, it’s also been one of the most difficult times in our relationship. Ummm does this ever get better? Will I stop being so angry or is this like how all new moms are.... angry. FYI baby is now 12 months, will I ever see my old sel... More
I just recently stopped breastfeeding and noticed that I started to lose some hairs not long after. Every time I wash my hair I will see a clump of hairs in the bathtub drainage. Even when I brush or running my fingers through my hair, I will get some more hair. I never have this issue with my first baby but this one scares me... Any mommies have the same issue?
