7 days before period due, homicidal rage at dh for minor infraction, started laughing in the middle of tirade, "congratulations, honey, we're pregnant." Do your breasts ache like the worst PMS ever? Are you hungry at weird times/feel like you have to eat IMMEDIATELY? Do you feel like gagging when you try to brush your back molars? Is your sense of smell super-heightened? Are you ready for bed at 8 pm? This can all happen to you well before your period is due, and no, it won't show up on pg test. GL, I hope you are... [ Reply | More ]

not appropriate (esp if you're talking about a male boss), and could be flirting. [ Reply | More ]

that's what I thought too. He's really polite but comments like "you're wearing my favorite dress today" really get me thinking [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Flying for the first time with a newborn next week. Any suggestions/help on how to check the bassinet for the Bugaboo? DS sleeps in it at home and having something familiar would be a big help. I can't imagine how to get it on the plane though. Thanks for tips/recommendations! 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

fold the whole thing up and put it into the bugaboo carrier and check it. even if you have to pay extra it will be worth it, imo. then, carry on car seat and wear db in bjorn or sling. or if you have the car seat attachment + the right car seat, use that as the stroller you take to the gate, then gate check just the base, and carry on the car seat. in this scenario you should put the bassinet (folded up) in a duffle bag or suitcase and check it. this is what we're doing tomorrow. i wouldn't gate check the bassinet, btw.
