[ - ] Anyone have a difficult time conceiving first DC but then got pregnant easily the second or third time around? Does this actually happen in real life - the stories you hear about the couple who tried or years and did IVF and then the second time got pregnant naturally right away. 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

it took me 7 months to get pregnant the first time, and 7 months to get pregnant again, 3 years later. I have no idea why, 7 must be our lucky number. The second time we used OPKs from the start and were really trying too [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Went to a very high profile black tie wedding last night with about 350 guests. There were no table assignments and not enough seats for all the guests. After the ceremony everyone had to rush to snag a table, and at least 25% ended up at standing cocktail tables or lounge style couches. Then when dinner was served, it was a buffet! Is it normal for guests to have to stand in line in tuxes and gowns and serve themselves? And then not have a table to return to? The couple is very well off (celeb) so money was not the issue here. I have nothing against buffets at weddings, but with over 300 people in line, it does not work. 71 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP: thats exactly what it felt like. It put a lot of people in a pretty bad mood. Also no table means no place to leave your purse, drink, etc, while youre dancing. [ Reply | More ]

You're wealthy hosts had a back room where they could keep all their stuff so they didn't care. [ Reply | More ]

We did this for my wedding. Not black tie. The key is having a designer make sure there are enough seating options so that no one feels like they have to rush to get seats. Also, there needs to be several stations so there isn't one long buffet line. FWIW - our guests loved the format, they could mix and mingle as they wished, eat when they wished, danced when they wished. It was more fun than your typical upscale wedding. [ Reply | More ]

Agree if they felt like OP, doubtful they would have told us. But we had a lot of people tell us how much they loved the format weeks after the wedding and they didn't need to tell us that [ Reply | More ]

So "stations" is the new faux-classy term for buffet? [ Reply | More ]

stations means that 'genre' of food are grouped together. ie: italian, sushi, salads etc. very preferable for hosts and guests, in my opinion. [ Reply | More ]

depends. the events i've been to like this felt like a lounge at a club with lots of different kinds of seating -- sofas, lounge chairs, high top tables, long low tables and some regular round ones mostly for the comfort of elderly relatives. It was a lot of fun and felt very free. [ Reply | More ]

Okay, but what if you want to sit with your DH and then 2 couples you are friends with- you end up all scattering about and sitting separately because there is no place for you to sit together. Whereas with assigned seating, which is extra work that the bridge and groom are trying to avoid, people are thoughtfully seated together. It's just laziness on the couples part. [ Reply | More ]

This sounds like a wedding I went to last year. HUGE buffet lines- and we had to go upstairs to the buffet and come back down again holding our food and our glass of wine- and no assigned seating. And we soon found out that there were not enough chairs by about half. There was an outdoor lawn area and my DH and I sat on the lawn to eat (I sat on his suit jacket as to not stain my gown). It was ridiculous. [ Reply | More ]

OP: if you put the effort in to buy a beautiful gown, shoes, etc, do your hair and makeup, you dont want to carry plates of food around and sit on the floor. [ Reply | More ]

Was it in the south? This is the normal way that southern wedding receptions are done. It caused an endless amount of "discussion" when I married a Yankee. :) [ Reply | More ]

I feel like part of what makes seating people at tables difficult is that there are always some people who cancel same day or just plain don't show up. It's so bad to have a table half empty. [ Reply | More ]

Parents accused my dc of getting their kid drunk one night at our house; my dc swore up and down the other kid brought the alcohol. Parents yelled at me. This fall the other kid was arrested at college for running a drug operation out of his dorm room. [ Reply | More ]

I was very smug about how other children ate before I had children and pontificated about all the kale and quinoa my imaginary children would eat and how I would never feed them blah blah blah. My daughter is a great eater, my son eats 5 things and would not eat kale if I weatherboarded him. I got mine. [ Reply | More ]

Nearly all of the parents whose kids get into trouble in HS. I used to know many of the parents when our kids were much younger, and let me tell you, everyone was at story hour signing up for snacks. No one wants to hear that their kid was caught giving/getting a handjob in the library; showed up to class with pupils like pinpoints; got caught shoplifting; got suicidal; got into a fight ... it's a parade of kids.
