[ - ] 3.5 year old DS keeps complaining of pain in his belly, tonight. He ate 2 bites of food and a few sips of water and isn't even interested in drinking juice or having a cookie, so I know something is wrong. Could it be gas? He never had stomach issues, so I'm a total novice as to how to make him feel better. Any advice? 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

A stomach virus is totally going around...just go with what he wants, small sips of ice cold water and cuddles. I always keep a bowl, a towel, wipes, and some water next to my bed when i think a stomach bug is coming on and I keep dd in bed with me. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Got myself into an awkward situation. My boyfriend and I are both professional DJs. During the day, he runs the DJ company and I work a different day job. My good friend from college was visiting from about 6 hours away. We talked about how great it would be for us to visit her and she said, "Why don't you come on my birthday weekend! Then you guys can stay at my house and DJ my birthday party." (cont. in comments) 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

She found a venue, I asked her how she wants to proceed in terms of logistics and she said "I could offer you guys some $$ and take you out to dinner." I said don't worry about dinner, this weekend is about you, it would be easier for us to just have a lump sum so we can justify missing other gigs. She didn't reply after that, so I still don't know how much she feels comfortable for this and I'm not sure how to ask. I would never charge her the full amount (good friend, birthday, plus we are staying at her house and presumably would be coming to visit anyway) but at the same time my boyfriend doesn't know her well and we will be working all night (no socializing, etc). How should I proceed at this point? [ Reply | More ]

Ugh, she is just looking for freebies, which is tacky when you weren't the one who offered! I would just ignore and wait for her to respond. I totally agree with you regarding getting paid (not the full amount, but at least a fair amount). You'd be losing money by going and you're being forced to work. [ Reply | More ]

Thanks. It seems like she does want to pay something - but I don't feel comfortable just waiting until the day of to see how much cash she hands me. I never work like that for any other gig-- and I'm not quite sure how to breach the subject with her at this point, to ask. [ Reply | More ]

This happens all the time to me (i am a chef/caterer.) It gets really awkward but like you said, to work a friends party, you have to cancel/not take any other gigs so it's not that the party itself will be free but that you will actually have lost income. Maybe try explaining that but it does get really awkward. [ Reply | More ]

OP Yeah. I guess the counter argument here is that we were going to pick a weekend to visit her anyway-- right? But by having this responsibility, we are required to visit that particular weekend and can't play by ear/etc. Plus it's work, not play. We won't be socializing at the party. [ Reply | More ]

Well technically I've already appeared 'on board' for it, just mentioned that I'd want a lump sum. So she thinks we're doing it. I didn't ask her directly how much she plans on paying (my fault for not being clear up front, but I've never had a friend situation with providing a professional service before). Is there some way I can ask her for a direct amount without being completely out of line here? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I just found out I'm pregnant and I'm so anxious. I'm almost 40, and I've had 2 losses over the past year (one MC at 9 weeks and one chemical pregnancy). I have one healthy DS that was conceived easily on the first try, no probs. Now I just feel anxious constantly - I am waiting for this one to be a chemical pregnancy. Every time my stomach rumbles I think it's cramps and that I'm about to start bleeding. I'm usually not an anxious person but this is really getting to me. :( Anyone BT, DT? Does it get any better? 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No, I'm not... is this really recommended? I know some women go on lovenox during pregnancy if they have a history of miscarriages. I had one MC that I assumed was chromosomal (I was 8 wks at the time) and the chemical pregnancy that occurred after I got pregnant completely unexpectedly/unplanned 2 months ago while on birth control. I thought maybe the embryo didn't implant b/c my hormones were wacky from the pills. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am just now realizing why I respond so poorly to my wife's work schedule. It's not that she has unpredictable hours, so that I never know when she will be around or not. It's that she likes it that way. She's left early every day this week, and gotten home late four out of five days. Last night we finally got calm and settled at about 10. She got called 15 minutes later to come back in and she jumped out of bed to leave. This morning she left at 7:30, and got home at 7:00. She got called at 7:45 and has been on the phone laughing and chatting for 30 minutes. Its kind of insulting that shes so happy to get back to work. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You have to examine inside yourself what you're really feeling in response to her behavior. (Not as important as her work? That she doesn't love you like she used to? Unappreciated?) From that place of understanding you can talk to her about your feelings. [ Reply | More ]
