I’m almost 11 weeks pregnant. Yesterday we went to the park with our 3 year old and I started having a headache. It literally lasted all day and night til I woke up out my sleep at 12 and finally took Tylenol. (I don’t like taking meds while pregnant which is why I waited so long) but naturally once the medicine wore off it started again around 3. I have work today but my head feels like it’s u... More

I have had terrible acne for a long time and I’m just so sick of it. I feel like I should be too old for acne and too young for wrinkles, yet I have both! There are so many acne products and so many anti aging products. I have no idea what I should be putting on my face. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’ve tried the neutrogena grapefruit stuff, the tea tree items from Trader Joe’s, and a few... More
So I was at a wedding last night and must have accidentally had dairy which I’ve avoided for 7 months due to my sons intolerance. I had a belly ache and was given half dose of pepto. I’m realizing now that it is NOT safe to take while breastfeeding and I’m freaking out a little. Anyone know how long I have to wait till I can breastfeed again? For this to be out of my system?
I’m a serial dater when it comes to fitness classes. I will love body pump and do it 3X a week until I’m bored. Then I move onto ballet barre, Zumba, water aerobics (you get the hint) I’m looking for the next fun and unique way to stay fit. Anyone have something you do that you wouldn’t mind sharing? Can’t wait to hear your ideas!
Hi everyone. I feel like I already have the winter blues and it's only the beginning of the season. I feel like all I want to do is sleep/ watch tv. I've been going to bed at 8:30. I feel so old and lame! I think this is partly because of the antidepressant I started taking for my anxiety. The pills have helped greatly with my anxiety so that's why I don't want to stop taking ... More
What can I do? I started online college courses while on maternity leave. I have A 2 year old and a 2 month old baby. I feel like I don’t give enough attention to them now. I can’t even imagine going back to work as active military... then I feel like my husband doesn’t give me enough attention... but I know he tries hard. There’s a lot of days that I feel very alone, sad, angry, and anxious...... More
I am a mommy of 2, 2 years and a nine month old. I have about 6hours of sleep a night, most times interrupted. I can’t put my babies to sleep or eat at a schedule because the older one need to have his dad around at night in order to sleep through the night. Dad has weird work schedule. What I am seeking for is to remind myself of who I am, it’s like I don’t know who I am anymore. I give 95% ... More
I have a 1 year old and am a news junkie... or at least was before the baby. Here’s my problem- almost daily some tragedy involving kids or babies makes the paper (including the migrant caravan seeking asylum, etc). I honestly didn’t give it much thought before having a kid. Now it’s devastating- I carry these stories around with me (for months), imagining what the parents are going through. ... More

Ever since my second dose of the Depo shot, I have been hungry pretty much all the time. I try to not eat right away when I'm hungry if I have just eaten a meal, but sometimes I can't help it and feel like I need to eat something. Even after I've had a big meal, I seem to be hungry within about an hour after eating. Anyone else experience this?? This is my second time being on the s... More
Ever since I had my son my vagina is very off. Periods are off, the whole nine yards. One thing I have very large insecurities about is my discharge. If I smell the slightest bit of it I go change everything. I know the vagina is a natural cleaner but like I cannot deal with any smell. It’s different every day. I douche but nothing seems to help. I need advice 😩
Can I just say how much cliché posts about “Take time for yourself” and “take care of yourself”, blahblahblah, annoy me? Someone posted a FB post on my feed that said that their masseuse advised them that it is important to take time for themselves. Many times, I see these posts directed towards moms in a somewhat patronizing way. I find that most people who post these kind of posts obviously ... More
So I’m 7 months post and still have a lot of excess skin like to the point it looks like I could have just had her. I work out eat right and do ab tightening exercises but nothing works. My abs still feel separated and even though I’m losing fat the skin is refusing to go back to normal. Any one else have this issue and if so did you get a tummy tuck? I also have chronic back pain and have read... More
It’s so easy for me to cave in when there’s bad food in the house and my husband just doesn’t want the change (he doesn’t gain easily like I do). I want to clean eat & meal prep but he wants frozen food and carbs galore. Can anyone relate? How do you deal with this?
Any ideas that could help me out this slump I’m in? My husband has this company Christmas party that we are invited to and I was trying on all the clothes I had and NOTHING FIT. All I could do was cry because I never had this problem before I was pregnant. I know it sounds dumb but it’s been three months now shouldn’t my body be going back to normal? I work out and eat healthy now and still not... More
Is there a such thing as being too attached to your kids? I have a 3 year old son and we are inseparable! I love him so much! I don’t go many places without him. We go on mommy and son dates all the time. We just went to see the grinch musical and had a blast! I see my other friends with children who often go out and party and I don’t understand how they leave their L/O behind so often. I also ... More
