I’m never late in my cycle unless I’m pregnant. Well at least it’s worked that way with my 3 LO so far. I should’ve started my cycle Sept 28 , today is oct 2. I’ve used 3 diff brand test several times going mad because I can’t figure out why the tests are all still saying negative. I’m not having many symptoms other than cramping as if my cycle will stay at any min. I also have slight tendernes... More
I really don’t know where else to post this (I looked at forum options and didn’t see anything related to this, so it’s out in the open, sorry, haha). Do any of you mamas use Depo Provera for birth control? I used it for 3 months right after I gave birth (over a year ago), and I had a rough time using it. I thought maybe it was because my hormones were still out of whack and my body was still... More

I’m a first time mom, my baby just turned 2 months and I’ve had trouble BF from the start. He gets a good latch because I can hear him gulping and my breasts feel empty after feeding but my nipples are on fire. I started pumping and bottle feeding him to give myself relief. I can only nurse him once maybe twice a day. I’ve tried lanolin nipple cream, coconut oil, aloe Vera. Nothing eases the pa... More
I am 14 days late on my period. Last week I took 6 tests and they were all negative. Everyday since my period was due I felt like I was bleeding. I thought my period was finally on. I can’t even tell you how many times I ran into the bathroom because I was 100% positive that my period was on. But there is nothing. I do have cervical fluid when I wipe. That’s it, never any blood. What could it be?
I’m at day 53 of cycle. My periods have been irregular the past year. I’m 45 years young. I have hot flashes. Took a hpt last week which was negative. I’ve considered early menopause as the cause of irregularities, but my dr did an ultrasound and found several “folicals” (eggs) still. I had an ovarian cyst that is no longer present that I was told could have been the cause of irregularities in... More
I am a stay-at-home single mom (I know... sounds crazy). I have an 18 month old and am hoping to stay home with him until he starts kindergarten. I have the financial means to make this happen, but I am going to lose my current health insurance in about a year. My son is covered under his father, so I will just need it for myself. I have several preexisting conditions that require (expensive) m... More
I am having gastric bypass surgery (the sleeve) in September. I have a 13mo right now who still requires a lot of lifting up and down. I have a very supportive husband and mother-in-law who lives in town who would be more than happy to help assist. Has anyone ever gone through this surgery with having such a little one that is still very dependent on you? Did you find the no bending or lifting ... More
I have been dealing with HG for about 30 weeks now and being on anti nausea meds around the clock. I can’t work, i have trouble keeping up with house chores and my husband has been the sole care taker of our 20 month old and finances. Would love some feed back it can feel so lonely...
I’m 7 weeks pregnant and had a low grade fever yesterday. It never went above 101 but I did eventually take a dose of Tylenol to bring it down. The fever was due to what seems like an upper respiratory cold. Now the fever is gone today. I’m reading all sorts of scary things on the internet about viruses/fevers/usage of Tylenol in early pregnancy and the potential for it to harm the baby. Anyone... More
Did anyone else experience terrible nausea in the 2nd trimester? I had some morning sickness in the first 2 months and it wasn't this bad. I just walked into my bathroom and the smell of our new toilet plunger made me so nauseous! I feel like it's starting mess with my work. Everything I smell makes me feel sick. I do take 25mg of B6 and eat ginger chews to try and help. Any recommendations?
Can mastitis go away on its own? I’m not sure if I even have it... I woke up yesterday and my breast felt bruised. Today there is a red coloring and a large lump under. I’m still able to nurse/pump, and it isn’t super painful. I’m not sure if I should go in to the doctor to avoid it getting worse... or just ride it out n see if it’ll go away on its own?
I need some answers.. so I had a period April 29th and last tell May 2nd. It was short and not that heavy. The last day it was more of spotting.. I’m going on 5 days I haven’t had a period, I took a test couple days ago and it said negative. And I’m not stressed like that. What do you guys think?
I have been struggling with dry patches on my face. I am 4 months pregnant with my second child and this didn't happen the last time. I drink plenty of water and also use emu oil mixed with rose hip oil. In the past these 2 helped but not this time. Did anyone else experience this? What did you do? I'm desperate for facial hydration!
