Re: Afterbirth

I saw mine-- the midwife showed it to me which was thoughtful. I would have been much more interested in viewing it if I wasn't so wiped out from delivery. I wasn't grossed out by it but I really didn't pay any attention to it and I wish I had now. My mom had my sister at home and she placed it unde...

Re: How would you react to lack of gifting?

Oh, then I guess you wouldn't get to far with making it retroactive to your wedding which would make it $135K . I am very impractical. He sounds like he is very practical. There are benefits to that as well. Can you take comfort in the knowledge of all the ill chosen gifts you've been spared over t...

Re: How would you react to lack of gifting?

Uppy-- My 9th wedding anniversary is this week. I have similar problems with gifts for Christmas birthdays, anniversaries. In the early years of our marriage I would make huge hints and even tell him what I wanted for a present-- usually jewelry. He bought me some pieces early on, but I always disap...

Re: HIMYM - The Ending

I thought the last 15-20 minutes or so of the finale were horrible. I don't have a problem with Ted ending up with Robin. He is an incredibly milquetoast character who envisioned himself a lot more romantic/interesting than he really is, and with that in mind, I don't see him having the imagination ...

Msop: I know you feel very passionately about your point and want to spread the truth. I don't disagree with vaccinating at all.

Re: Has anyone tried magnesium for migraines?

Have you tried Natural Calm? It is pretty sour but is in powder form so you can take as little or as much as you would like. I must be magnesium deficient because I feel a definite sense of well being half an hour after drinking it. There is a version that is straight magnesium and one that is a cal...

Thanks Minou and Vapid. If they weren't lifted then they could be in two rooms in the house. Unless one of my kids moved them.

Hello all-- I know a number of you have psychic abilities when we have lost something. I stupidly had 6 one ounce gold coins in my house, and I have misplaced them. Does anyone have a sense if they have been misplaced, and if so, where? My house has not been broken into, but I am worried that they m...

Re: Expensive Diamond Jewellery for Children

I can see both sides to this. If you have the money to spend and the idea of the child losing it is not a big deal, it is the gift giver's prerogative. I also agree with many of the issues Smith brought up: spoiling the child, unrealistic expectations etc. I am certain that the 15 year old given pie...

Re: Light spinel

Pretzel-- My thought is that if you are having second thoughts about the spinel don't ignore them. If you are thinking about making a custom setting with accents stones etc, it will not be an inconsequential purchase. And you don't want the center stone to be less than what you want... But this is c...
