[ - ] I was scheduled to get Mirena IUD once period came...got period over the weekend when the doctor's office was closed. I called today to see when I can have it inserted and the nurse told me that I shouldn't have had sex while on my period. I didn't know! Does this mean I have to wait another month to have it put in? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] 16mo has been transitioning to 1 nap. often he only sleeps for 50-60min and starts crying. i tried cio, he just gets hysterical. today started crying after 40min, i walked in and see that his eyes are actually closed as he's crying, I thought he might go back to sleep, but he was just getting himself more and more worked up and then I had to get him. i guess nothing i can do to get him to sleep more? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Pg with ds #2. We have chosen a name but aren't telling anyone until ds is born. My mom kept making name suggestions which was driving us crazy until finally I told her that the db has a name and she'll hear what it is the min he's born (everyone else who asks we tell we're thinking of names or working on it and they accept that). So now she keeps telling me that her grandfather's middle name was Benjamin. She works this into most converstations. Lst night she told me that my aunt refers to the baby as Benjamin. I told her "Mom, the baby has a name and it's not Benjamin. It's not any name in our family." What else am I supposed to do? She's driving me nuts. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have to say you women are being really really rude. You have no idea what this guy has been through. Maybe he was sexually abused. Maybe he was raped. Who knows. In any event, OP can gently tell him she likes being next to him and wants to relish the experience, could they cuddle afterwards, etc...or say something to make him feel sexy...there is no reason to cast this guy out yet because of his own insecurities around sex. I was more or less the same with DH because of inexperience. I am glad he kept me around and we worked it out. [ Reply | More ]

Even better would be if her son could procreate entirely by himself, so that it could be just her and her family. Maybe I do have issues, but it has been seventeen long years of this treatment.
