[ - ] 5 months post partum and I still feel very weak. I had severe pre-eclampsia during the pregnancy and had dd 4 weeks early. I had a rough pp period this pregnancy. Three straight months of bleeding and then got my period right away with severe cramping and pms. I feel an underlying weakness that I can't explain. I feel like just walking up the street is a struggle at times. Medical work ups don't show anything unusual other than slightly elevated blood pressure. I barely have the energy to get through workouts let alone the day. I am still not getting a full nights sleep so that is not helping matters. Did anyone else go through this? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

+1 I tend to agree. Let your body heal. Are you anemic? I was severely anemic and had absolutely no energy or desire to do anything. Was sleepy. Get your blood count done. I was so anemic they called me and told me to get to an ER immediately. Iron tablets did nothing prior to my needing a transfusion. One doctor poo poo'ed it. But another (urgent care) did a quick bloodwork and sure enough... [ Reply | More ]

Streeteasy and NYBits are great for full-service rental buildings with no-fee/on-site management. That said, not many rental buildings have 3 bedroom inventory, so you'll likely find more if you go the condo rental route. Streeteasy will include condo listings as well, but like PP said, for that size you might actually find a better deal by using a broker. [ Reply | More ]

What's"settling"? Dh admits he could probably have a successful marriage with many people, and tbh, so could I. Does not believing you have a soul mate mean you're settling? [ Reply | More ]

OR, yes, but I think it's more because he's an honest person and a good partner, and taken together he's probably correct that a person can have a good life with more than one person. Fwiw, our marriage is great. [ Reply | More ]

What if the more attractive, wealthier, more intelligent, independent was also more arrogant, more selfish, less loyal and more self-important? Makes sense to choose the sweet girl next door in that case. I wouldn't think of that as settling. That's just smart [ Reply | More ]

Np: you're essentially saying that if DH ever liked someone who was in some way (or even in every way) on the surface considered more desirab;le than you, that he's settling? isn't this the case for everyone? i mean, i'm sure i know lots of men who are more attractive, successful, rich, smart than DH, but that doesn't mean that I wanted to marry them, even if on the surface i was attracted to them. relationships are about more than those qualities, they are about the dynamic and chemistry and future lifestyle between 2 people. some workaholic type A may seem a better catch until you're at home alone all the time.

I know a couple with this dynamic. There relationship really lacks passion. They seem like roommates. The groom was given the advice that it is better to marry someone who loves you more than you love them so you can basically do whatever you want and she'll always be there. I'm not sure how happy they are. [ Reply | More ]

in my 20s, no. now, yes. but in my 30s, i figured out that there is just good enough. there is a time in your life when you are ready to marry. before that, you're not ready and it doesn't matter who's with you. then you are ready and the person good enough is good enough. when i look back, i could have married about six of my previous boyfriends starting in college. but i wasn't ready then or they had some character flaw that didn't sit right with me then but would be ok now. it's not a big deal.

I'm not trying to be mean. Maybe you're not "in their league." These umc assholes have an agenda when socializing. They need you to be of social use to them if they don't click with you truly and deeply for some reason. That's why so many of these women volunteer at school and chair the fundraisers and shit. It's really horrible but that's how it goes. Good luck. [ Reply | More ]

when we're in our 20s and 30s, people still want to make genuine connections because they want a friend. when we get to our late 30s and 40s, we're focused on our families and friends take a way way way back seat. so it only gets priority when it serves some familial (soicla stauts) need. that's what i've observed and concluded, anyway. i don't think 95% of these friendships from children's schools survive even the children's high school years, forget college and beyond.

get a little black dress that has one "sexy" element to emphasize your best feature - it can be short, or it can be open back or halter, it can have side cut outs, it can show cleavage. but not more than 1 of those things otherwise it will look trashy rather than sexy. [ Reply | More ]
