I could have written this myself. For me, my biggest point of contention was weight gain. I had gained so much weight after DC was born and then never bothered to diet my way back down..so I am now 40lbs overweight. I have joined a Meetup group to help with getting out of the house, and I try to avoid the TV because it seems to catapult me into old bad habits (like snacking in front of the TV). I also have tried to see friends more on weekends and not stay inside the house..Easier said than done but this nice weather isn't going to last that long. (NYC weather). [ Reply | More ]

Someone did this to me and I still do not understand why I was defriended. It wasn't someone I was close with, just someone in the same profession as me and talked about our towns on another local message board. This person kept trying to convince me to get pregnant right away (when I was on the fence) and I think there was a slight undertone of "how could you be content not rushing to have a child before age 40" attitude which I honestly didn't let bother me. My life, my schedule, my values. We even discussed UB and she used to quip about how "snobby" and "out of touch" the women who posted here were...So makes me wonder if she is reading this now and wondering who I am, lol.

[ - ] Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who believes that there are things in life that are objectively good or bad. I mean, getting divorced is wrong. I'm not saying you're a bad person if you do that, but it's not just "something that happened." It's a mistake. Being a SAHM who brings her kids to camp all summer and puts them into activities until 6pm during the school year is wrong. Moving 2500 miles away from your parents and calling them twice a month while they wither away in their house is wrong. Putting your kids into travel sports at 7 so that you can be a part of the cool parents crowd at the weekend tournaments is wrong. But it seems that there's nothing that you can't just say "well, that's my choice" and be absolved of responsibility. Some choices are worse than others, and there should be consequences for making them. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I try to raise DD as healthy as possible. We are still working on portion sizes and usually let her have some freedom when we are at a party/holiday, but we are pretty good inside the house. I like her to have a lot of vegetables and try to get as much organic as we can. Now, every year I have to go to my in-laws for Christmas. We usually stay like 4 or more days. I usually wouldn't care about a 1 day holiday meal but what they make for xmas eve we also eat christmas day for lunch and dinner and usually a day or two after that. Essentially we eat the same foods leftovers for the ENTIRE time we are there. And they eat very unhealthy. They don't eat any vegetable whatsoever, unless its plain lettuce covered in some heavy disgustingly unhealthy salad dressing. I usually bring my own food for her but she is getting older and wants to have what other people at the table are having. So, I am looking for suggestions that I can quickly make without too much trouble (not take over the kitchen) or make ahead and can travel 3 hours with us and last the 4+ days. This is what they already serve: For appetizers: Deviled Eggs (which I won't let her have, I find them gross and don't like her having mayo or non-organic eggs), Cheese and crackers, and Shrimp Cocktail (We are vegetarians). For dinner: Potato Pierogies (I let her eat these), served with sour cream (I already give her yogurt and she doesn't yet realize the difference), Kielbasa (we are vegetarians), rye bread (i dont like her having this for some reason), mashed potatoes (but basically the potato pierogie is mashed potatoes wrapped in dough), coleslaw (but DD has never had mayonnaise and i dont really want to give her that), and sometimes lettuce salads (just lettuce, not organic, which is a dirty dozen). I was thinking of maybe making broccoli which she loves because thats quick in the microwave. But what other kinds of appetizers or side dishes can I start making like my annual contribution to Christmas? I need staples that could become DD's food traditions, so she is not trapped into their food traditions. Sorry this is so long! Any ideas would help. Its hard when I'm not home for so long in my own kitchen! [ Reply | More ]

I generally try to eat as you do, but you are NUTS limiting her intake (ie, no sour cream, just yogurt) for 4 days. My folks (also Slavic) do the whole leftovers every day after Xmas too. The bottom line is that you'll just have to have the traditional foods that are healthy in some other way. A few things you could add: red and green peppers as part of an appetizer plate (Christmasy); broccoli or green beans stir fried with red peppers (again, the red and green theme makes it seem festive). Otherwise, though, REALLY REALLY REALLY stop worrying about that week. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Childfree posters, did you always know? Did you ever have doubts? I always planned to be CF, DH is on board but open to one child if I changed my mind. I made it to my late 30s and now I am second guessing myself. Not sure if it's the fact that the window is closing now or in the immediate future but I find myself thinking about it often and wondering if I made a huge mistake. Did you feel the same way? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not childfree but this is how I think about being one and done. Always wanted one, DD is 7 and I am 39 and I find myself staring at babies, dreaming about babies etc. There are many reasons why we should be one and done but I think my reproductive system is taking one last stand before quitting [ Reply | More ]

My sister started TTC at 37. Wasn't staunchly childfree but was solidly on the fence for years. She was married at 30 so she had time to start earlier, she just didn't want to [ Reply | More ]

I first felt this way at 20. I was honest about my ambivalence with DH. He was similarly ambivalent. I forced us to examine this very closely before the window closed. I did not want this to passively slip by and for DH to not realize the door has closed. It was hard to say this is it, but we are both very much happy with the choice AND that the choice has been made. Limbo is hard. [ Reply | More ]

We got married when I was 25 and we didn't have DD until I was 42. It wasn't that we didn't want kids, we were just happy the way things were at the time and didn't feel the urge to do so. I think at one point we just decided to make a decision...if that makes sense. Granted, I feel we were very fortunate that it worked out naturally. I wouldn't have gone through any IVF or treatments if I had difficulty. [ Reply | More ]

I had a hysterectomy recently due to borderline cancer and unfortunately my decision was made for me, whether I wanted to stay on the fence or not (I am 39). DH and I talked about adoption and foster care but at our age, I just don't think it would be a good idea. Part of me is CF because we really come from very small families (DH and I do not have siblings and both parents are elderly and not in a position to provide babysitting services due to health or geography). We are both working professionals with long hours, so that also plays a role. I think if you have doubts at all, you should not be a parent at all. Parenthood is a very big responsibility, and I believe in the whole "it takes a village" concept so I feel that I would feel pressured to be a SAHM if I decided to be a mom. For us, after doing the "pros and cons" of being parents - decided the list under Cons were longer than the Pros, so we said "Nope". [ Reply | More ]

I am so sorry for your hysterectomy. I hope your cancer is not an issue. We are both professionals too and I feel like our baby would be with a nanny so much that it would be selfish for us to even have a kid. But I like my job and worked hard to get where I am so I wouldn't really want to quit either [ Reply | More ]

PP: that is exactly the words DH and I said to each other..about our hours forcing us to get a nanny, and our jobs don't really pay that much as it is (we are in non profit sector and not in high paying jobs or anything that pays well by UB standards). I would not want a nanny, and the price of a really great one would cause financial hardship for us. Thankfully my borderline cancer was found very, very, very early (I had an ultrasound and after exploratory surgery, an oncologist strongly recommended I get it done before it developed into something worse). I do have a small history of cancer in my family so the decision was a no-brainer. I am more concerned about my health at this point than being able to take care of another life.. [ Reply | More ]

That makes sense. I am glad you are at peace with it. I see women in my field (law) have children and some make it work better than others but only a few seem to strike a good balance. And most of those have family nearby [ Reply | More ]

I was 100% CF until family issues led me to take in my niece. She was 19m and it was out of duty, but I was surprised by how much I loved it. It may have helped that she was older and I wasn't up all night (I need my sleep) but she's 4.5 now and I can't imagine my life without her. DH and I are even considering adopting a second older child. I do think that absent that extreme situation that I could have been very happily CF. But I absolutely love raising a child too.

[ - ] Uh Oh, I'm busted. I've been on here complaining about DH most days, and then yesterday when his friend came over he said something like "She's writes on this blog. UrbanBaby, it's called." Shit. That means he's probably been reading the things I've been saying about him. Well I guess I have to find a new place to complain about him. And I thought I was being so careful with hiding the laptop screen. Beware fellow UBers, the DHs are onto us. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

op: about how he's passive aggressive and seems to take joy in pissing me off. He thinks it's funny to try and embarrass me in front of other people. Like last week we had another couple over. I went the restroom. About 20 minutes later he goes in, comes out, and says "Did you take a dump in there? It smells awful." Seriously? You would think he's 14, not 31. [ Reply | More ]

I did a few years ago when we were in a bad streak and I actually showed him some of the responses I got. He didn't get mad and we got through it all fine, but I think the fact that he saw his behavior in black-and-white and what people thought of it gave him pause. [ Reply | More ]

Anthro mom here. Men don't know about fight club rules. I've had at least 3 dhs say "Oh my wife is on that all the time" and when I ask the wife about it (subtly) she looks me dead in the eye and say "What is that place? NEver heard of it" [ Reply | More ]
