Re: Did you do anything special before TTC?

Hi,

I read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, took prenatal vitamins, and went to my doctor to see if I was immune to Rubella (I was).

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

Lots of people push their diamond preferences on the newbies. That is par for the course, and newbies need to read all advice with an open mind and a grain of salt. People tend to state their opinions as though they were facts, e.g.: only BGD/ACA diamonds are the best, only AGS graded diamonds are w...

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

Some posters bitch and moan about being called "bullies" but then those same posters think it's perfectly fine to go around shouting "net nanny" at others? Seems like a double standard to me.

To me, disagreeing with the content of the post is way different than attacking the personality of the poster. The bullying I have seen and am referring to is very obvious and aggressive.

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

I think after buying your diamond e-ring, you maybe read for a while, form some friendships, maybe buy one or two more pieces, but then eventually move on. People get married, buy houses, have kids, etc. There is not a lot of time for reading on a diamond site anymore, and I suspect a lot of people ...

Re: Setting an antique cushion: Sholdt's 14k VS 18K RG?

Gold is naturally yellow and 18k rose is still 75% pure gold, so that is why it will be less coppery than 14k. 14k is only 58% pure gold; the other 42% is comprised of alloys. 18k rose is pretty subtle; some people say they can't tell it's rose until it's put next to a yellow gold piece.

Re: Setting an antique cushion: Sholdt's 14k VS 18K RG?

14k is pinker but also more coppery since the copper content is generally higher in 14k than 18k. 18k will be more of a blush/apricot hue.

Not only do these fans not care, they openly defend "their" players and give them standing ovations when they come on the field. So disgusting.

Aww, MP, I'm so sorry. It's hard enough to go through infertility, but to have a loss of a much-wanted baby hurts beyond belief. I was so hoping you were wrong. I am proud of you for being your own advocate and for insisting on getting seen sooner.

Re: KUDOS to the NFL for firing player for domestic violence

How about Ray Lewis? It's disgusting that all those fans idolized him too after what he did. He was definitely involved in some way with a murder.
