True, Israel is a terrorist state.

[ - ] For those who have had a private room at Weill Cornell: Can anyone tell me if you've been made to pay for a whole day if you haven't gotten the room until after 9pm or 10pm? I'm scheduled for a c/s at 5pm tomorrow so I'll be in a recovery room for 3 hours after and not in a room (if even available) until earliest 9pm so my husband thinks it's ridiculous if we have to pay $800 for the day when we wouldn't have even been in there. I do agree with him, but if we have to share then he can't be there after 9pm so it would be sad to be all alone immediately after having our baby. I'm hoping they pro-rate or something.

The nurses were great about it though and found an empty shared room for me until a private one was available. DOn't want to deal with that this time around.

They won't pro rate it. If you get a room before midnight you pay for tha night. But the odds are very small that you will, since people generally vacate mid-day and they are in demand and you can't request one until after the baby arrives. So you'll be in a double room the first night and then can switch to private the next day if one becomes avail. [ Reply | More ]

As soon as you check in make sure they know you want that private room. And then make sure your labor and delivery nurses know - that's who managed to get me into one. Second DB came so fast I had no time to make friends w the nurses and ended up having to share. It was fine but the private room was oh so nice. Pregnant w #3 and delivering in Nj where all the rooms are private (for free!!). So excited. Lol. [ Reply | More ]

I'm black, my son has ASD (and was not IVF). I did have him in my late 30s, but I had a second, non ASD child after him and my mom had me at the same age. There are plenty of other nonwhite kids at my son's school, though I have no idea about how many are Jewish. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I don't have kids yet, so can someone help me understand this. I read the most popular post about the mom mad that her DH wasn't helping with night feeding a because he didn't want to be tired for work. Meanwhile she was the stay at home parent. Why should DH be doing night feedings when he has to go to work in the morning and she doesn't? She can sleep during the day. He can't. If he is expected to help her with her job, should she also show up at his finance office and help him with clients? The entitled attitude seemed alarming. If one person works and the other stays at home, then I think the stay at home parent should do all the heavy lifting when it comes to parenting. This seems like common sense, but the thread had people arguing both sides. Explain. 34 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

A newborn that doesn't sleep well is more exhausting than work. In that situation, the DW is not sleeping much at all and doesn't get to make up for it during the day. DH should man-up.

The infant doesn't exactly sleep all day... and during the day she has to shop, cook, clean as well. Plus, she's on a short maternity leave and she is a physician, not a SAHM, so this is supposed to be her period of recuperation before returning to surgery. Her DH is an ass. [ Reply | More ]
