My baby was born in the thick of flu/RSV season, I still let everyone touch her and hold her (of course) but I did ask if they'd purell their hands first. Maybe I was annoying in their eyes, but I was kind of paranoid about my infant getting RSV. He didn't catch it. [ Reply | More ]

I never usually suffer from headaches... it doesn't seem to be sinus related, although I did have slight pressure around the top of the nose a few times. But today for example, it is only a headache. The doc gave a spray (Flonase) thinking it might help, but after 3 days I don't notice it is helping. I am just worried I guess, wish I knew what was causing it and hope it may go away soon. I am traveling over Christmas, first vacation in over a year... I had an MRI of the brain in June and everything is fine. Could it be linked to perimenopause? Stress? I guess it would just make me feel better to know it can happen and it will pass. Thank you 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Why? Look at the ingredients for windex. Most of this is the same stuff anyway. [ Reply | More ]

It's a chain, but she is a brand new trainer and they charge different amounts for different levels of experience. Also, Pilates instructors bill out at higher rates. Not sure why. [ Reply | More ]

I agree - assuming there's no nanny. That gets you babysitters a few nights a week, housekeeper twice a week and a sometimes dog walker. If she works or if there's a nanny involved, the amount would be higher. [ Reply | More ]
