Too Much Princess?

My parents watch my 2 year old two days a week and are great with her. They have more than just a occasional grandparent role in her life and have a big influence on her. No offense to anyone, but my husband and I don't like princess and all things girly for her. She certainly wears pink and has dolls, but we also expose her to Curious George, Elmo, sports etc. We just don't love princess as a role model. My parents are over the top on all things princess, dance, frilly, etc and it is starting to annoy us. She came home with 2 princess...

Names and Meanings....

I was just wondering if most people name their children by names that they like or if they actually look at the meanings and origins. I love finding out what names mean. My daughter's name is Myracle Gianna (Miracle Gee-on-ah).. it means: Myracle: an unexpected event attributed to divine intervention/a divine act; Giana: God is gracious. I thought it was beautiful put together. What do your kids names mean?? Or do you just name by what sounds good together? And if you do name by what sounds good, are you interested in what they mean...

How Long After Birth....

How long after birth is your period supposed to start again? The bleeding stopped after four weeks, and I haven't had a period since then. My daughter was born almost 11 weeks ago. I'm not on any birth control, so that isn't the reason. I am nursing; I don't know if that has any effect at all. I'm a little nervous because we had an "oops" moment a few weeks ago (if Janet Jackson had a wardrobe malfunction, we had a condom malfunction...). I did take a test and it was negaive, but I also probably didn't wait long enough after the "oops" to...

How Did Your Labor Start?

TOTALLY out of curiosity: How did your labor start? For example, did you begin to dilate and then X amount of time later go into labor? Did your water break before or after you began to dilate? How long were you in early labor before you went into active and then transitional labor? And so on and so forth... (Alright, I'll be honest. I have a girlfriend who "has dropped" and begun to dilate. I am flippin' out of my mind excited! Her little lady will be here soon(ish?)! So, I want to hear your stories! We're all different and...

Anyone an Only Child or Have an Only Child (By Life Happenstance or by Choice?)

I am a single woman on an adoption waiting list for a baby girl. I'm 47 and after much heartbreak of not meeting Mr. Right five years ago I decided to become a parent on my own. I tried to have biological kids a few years ago, but it was too late. I tried donor egg, that didn't work. Now I'm adopting and after a long wait I am very close to having my child. I've always envisioned if I was married I'd have three kids. But as a single woman, I planned to adopt two. Now I've met someone who has two grown kids and wasn't planning on having...

Early Pregnancy Signs

What are some very early pregnancy signs that one may experience. I am 3 days away from a period, but I fell pregnant. I have taken 2 at home test but both were negative. I feel VERY tired, on the verge of throwing up all day, can't sleep due to discomfort in stomach and I have to pee more than normal. Did or does anyone feel this way at a early stage of pregnancy?
