So we asked at our last appointment if it was safe for me to travel because of Zika virus (we were thinking Florida) and our doctor said it was okay to go anywhere! She said the Zika virus isn’t a huge concern anymore, just to use bug spray and stuff. So since this whole Red Tide craziness in Florida, we cancelled our trip and booked a trip to Riviera Maya. I was just looking at CDC website and... More
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?
It’s been straining my back already and I don’t want to cut her baths short because of it since she loves bath time.. little one is only 6 months and I’m 18 weeks. When I sit on the edge of the tub and twist around my mom freaks out saying I shouldn’t be doing that, but what else is a mama suppose to do
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 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
This never happened the first time I was pregnant, I had my baby earlier this year and now expecting again.. I don’t know if this is because the pregnancies are too close but I get moments where I feel dizzy and my vision almost gets dark and my head and neck feels sooo heavy and short breathed. Anytime I mention anything at the ob/gyn (it’s just nurse practitioners) they say it’s probably beca... More

Has anybody had this procedure before? I’m scheduled for one next week because my baby is still breech, and I’m nervous about it! Also if anyone had a C-Section and would care to share anything about the experience, I would appreciate that, too. Thank you!
So I’m 10 weeks along and during the ultrasound, my doctor said “that’s not a penis, that’s a tail. They don’t have their parts yet”. But I’ve read in multiple articles that the tail is supposed to be completely gone at 10 weeks. Does anyone know if this is true? I’m asking because I really want it to be a girl! Here’s the picture with the tail
Okay Parents, please share any fun ways you let your partner know another one is on the way! Got my blood work back this afternoon and husband is working late so I have time to make it a fun surprise! All ideas welcomed, would like to include my son on the fun too. Ahhh, so excited!!
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?
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
