all i can say to you is, for most women, it happens quickly. i know that is easier said than done, but most likely, if you get married, you will get pregnant very quickly. make sure you get yourself checked out, make sure everything is in order so when you are ready to rock and roll, you are ready. GL, it will all work out. Don't worry, stress won't help. there is a plan for you, have faith and trust. you are young and have plenty of time! xo and by the way, i met my husband at 28, married at 30, had my first at 32, second at 34 and 3rd at 37.

just don't wish away this time because you're worried about kids. What the other posters said is SO true. Focus on your relationship with the guy because odds are you will become pregnant when you want and you don't want to look back and wish you had really enjoyed the time alone with your DH instead of just rushing to this point. But i totally understand where you're coming from. Women feel a lot of pressure, and the age thing. But you're young, you have plenty of time. don't let anyone tell you differently or make you feel like you have to be at a certain point in your life because you "x" years old. Sounds like you met a nice guy - good luck with that. I hope it work outs for you :) [ Reply | More ]

OR - yes, and it's easier for me to say, i know you want that part of your life to get started NOW. i get it. i remember being exactly where you were, so i get it. Kind of feeling like you want to know the plan... but you love this guy and he loves you so i am sure he is going to propose. sounds like you've had the family discussion and he knows you want to get married and have kids. he has friends with kids, brothers with families, so he doesn't run with some pack of bachelors, so more than likely, he is going to propose.. so just breathe and trust and it will happen. :) xo [ Reply | More ]

I think what is anti-semitism is when people ask Israel to refrain from bombing areas that are launching missiles at them while giving a pass to dictators that kill their own people or to the US when we kill people who aren't even launching bombs at us. What is antisemitism is not recognizing that Israel is in a lose-lose situation. Yes, they should stop bombing. But is there any point where they are allowed to defend themselves (say their missile shield stops working and one of the thousands of bombs Hamas launches kills people?

Telling Israel not to defend itself after years of rocket-throwing by Hamas, 2500 rockets fired and tunnels constructed with all the money and supplies that came in to help the people, is antisemitism. It's beyond tragic that Hamas killed 160 children in building the tunnels and puts missiles in schools so children will be killed, but it's not reasonable to say Israel should allow its own people to die to save the Arabic children Hamas is effectively slaughtering, or that Israeli should be villified for killling ANYONE during a WAR. It's antisemitism to not give a rat's ass when 170000 are killed in Syria (including how many children???) but to scream for blood if Israel, despite the warnings to leave unheard of for ANY country, kills a single civilian.

I posted below. I agree with you. I think Israel (for their own sake and PR) should be cautious of this but it's no different from what the US did in Afghanistan and Iraq. I don't understand why people don't see the difference, especially since the US doesn't have to deal wi terrorists as closely as Israel [ Reply | More ]

Before 1947, Palestine was not a state. It was under British mandate but separately from Jordan. Palestinian identity is complicated. there wasn't a Palestinian identity in Israel. It was Arab- some considered themselves Syrian (in the north) but generally speaking Palestinian identity as it is known today was a cultural movement that sprung in response when locals were exposed to nationalism and more specifically Jewish nationalism [ Reply | More ]

I think it all depends on how your body responds. You've just been on it three months. It took me that long to adjust to the pill and everything was whacky, including some weight gain.

Could you give it a little more time? [ Reply | More ]

It depends. I took one pill which regulated my weight. When I switched to a lower dose one I actually gained weight so I switched back and instantly lost all that extra weight.

[ - ] Has anyone delivered at Columbia Presbyterian? I assumed it was a good hospital but have read some really negative reviews. At the end of my third trimester and now regretting choosing a doctor who delivered there. Any insight on previous experience would be much appreciated. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think the experience at any hospital has most to do with the nursing staff you get (luck of the draw) and your doctor. I had some terrible nurses there and some good ones. Bc I stayed for a while due to complications it was overall not a good experience for me but I know many who have had good experiences there and bad experiences elsewhere. [ Reply | More ]

I had a horrible experience there. It's the kind of place that has a great reputations for a real emergency or high risk situations, both for you and the baby, but for routine care it's a toss up with the kind of care you'll get. If a healthy, normal pregnancy / birth you might just get ignored because they've got lots of other high risk cases to worry about. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Did you drink alcohol while breastfeeding? A drink with dinner (if that is what you did pre baby) or just every once in a while? Were you hyper vigilant about waiting 3 hours to feed, or relaxed? (I'm 8 months pregnant and wondering how much longer I will have to abstain) 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

drank freely, the level that goes into your breastmilk is very low... i wasn't drinking cocktails but a few beers or a couple of glasses of wine iwth dinner, no affect whatsover, no sleepiness in baby etc. [ Reply | More ]

No sleepiness in baby, wtf. you have to wait until the alcohol is processed, it's not that long. google, it, it's a couple of hours per drink for a normal weight woman, but alcohol DOES transmit to breastmilk. You have to time it right. [ Reply | More ]

It does so in such small quantities as to be 0% alcohol. Say you drink a glass of wine, feed baby an hour later.. your blood alcohol limit is 0.01% so the alcohol content of the breastmilk is 0.01.. not alcholic. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Hosting a BBQ and a good friend's son has severe food allergies (dairy, egg, soy, nuts). I know she is usually stressed when she goes to things like this, so I'd like to make it as allergy friendly as possible. I am serving chips with guac/salsa, fruit salad, and hot dogs, hamburgers, salmon burgers, veggie burgers, etc. Corn on the cob, and veggie kabobs. Anyone else have ideas for what else I can serve that would be safe for her son? Please no flames. He's a sweet kid, and has already had to go to the hospital multiple times. TIA! 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Very thoughtful! Italian ice or ice pops are good and no one is allergic to Oreos (there us nothing real in them....which is bad but always a "safe" bet. Have a kid with a ton of allergies....glad my kid has learned to deal but would be so grateful for a friend like you! [ Reply | More ]
