[ - ] Period question for the middle aged people here: I'm 44. Had regular periods my whole life. Recently one period was about a week late, then the next back to reg cycle. Now I'm about a week or so late (no, not pg). Is this just the beginning of menopause? For the past few years, my periods have been getting lighter, too, and no cramps at all (I used to get them on day one). All part of the same thing? So now what? Just never know when my period may or may not come? Or is this it? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You are likely ovulating later which is causing later periods. [ Reply | More ]

Probably menopause. They'll contine to change. Track your periods: one full year without bleeding means your periods are done and you can have a burn-the-tampons party. Buy new, unstained underwear after a year of no periods. Do some research as there are many other symptoms, any of which you may or may not have. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is it possible that the "made in China" clothes that people in China buy are better quality than those we get in the US? I live in an area with a lot of graduate students from China, and they are all nicely dressed. They make Americans look like slobs. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You can get nice clothes here. It is just that chinese people take more pride in their appearance [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] does anyone here have sole custody and shared legal custody - did you have to provide itinerary and location for every trip? I guess I would have to if I expect ex-H to do that for his trips, no? 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Guess so. I am the primary caregiver since birth, and ex has only visited. It has always been more of a situation where he is the "visitor" - not equal parent. But I guess I will have to agree to this if he insists on reciprocity. [ Reply | More ]

He's still their father, and he should know in general where they are. Especially for travel. If something happens to you, police may need to reach him, and he may need to go get them. [ Reply | More ]

Whenever I read one of these posts -- and they are legion -- I wish I could impress on young women how careful they should be re who they hook up with, marry, have kids with. Once you have a kid, you can be stuck with some a-hole forever. And it can wreck your life. I didn't have kids with my first H and I've haven't seen or heard of him for twenty years. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. So many friends have children under ten with exes they don't like and don't trust to parent. I don't get how someone was good enough to have children with, but all of a sudden is useless and pointless. [ Reply | More ]

np I think it comes down to a lack of expectation management. A lot of women who think they'll get to SAH, or they'll get to WOH and DH will be fully 50-50 at home, and a lot of men who think they'll get to play with kids for an hour on the weekend while they wait for their tee time to open up, and none of them actually talk about how they envision family life *before* there's a family. Every couple should have to foster first, or at least spend a full week caring for children full time together, to see what the reality is like before they commit to twenty years of co-parenting.

I didn't marry the guy I dated in college/20s after I saw how he babysat his niblings. He was great at playing but as soon as there were booboos or tears or even a diaper to change, it was straight back to the parents. [ Reply | More ]

I have 50-50 custody with ex, but don't share full itineraries. I'll tell him "we're going to Maine for the week from x date to y date" but don't give him hotel names, etc. I don't know why he'd need an itinerary, but I do think he has some right to know we're not in town. I expect the same from him. [ Reply | More ]
