    The Official TTC for 6 Months or More Thread

    Popping in to say an HSG worked for us, too. My daughter was conceived right after I had one... Good luck!

    Advice Needed: How to Break Bad Sleep Habits?

    Some follow up on this, in case anyone cares... and on the off-chance that someone else needs help with sleep... I am happy to report we have had some success! We started with weekend naps. Using the same schedule she keeps at daycare, we turn the lights off, put on some soothing music, and put...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Hi, gem! I still lurk on this thread even though my little one is now almost 13 months. Do you baby wear at all? Wearing him might prevent him from getting overstimulated/overwhelmed. You'd keep him faced in and snuggled up to you, which is comforting. Plus if he is strapped to you, it makes...

    Advice Needed: How to Break Bad Sleep Habits?

    Thanks for the input, everyone. Mia - My gut was telling me that starting with naps was the right way to go. Given her daycare sleeping habits, I would hope it wouldn't be hard to get the napping fixed quickly. I read Pantley's "No Cry Sleep Solution" back in the fall when we had our first...

    Advice Needed: How to Break Bad Sleep Habits?

    Hi all! Hoping some of your experienced mamas can offer some advice and/or encouragement. Apologies in advance for the long post - just figured some background info might help. My DD turned 1 about 2 weeks ago. Since she was 4 months, her sleep has been all over the map. She has had a few...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Hello, ladies! I pretty much never post anymore, as this thread got really slow shortly after my LO was born, but I do lurk relatively frequently and always love hearing about everyone's mommy journeys and experiences. And the baby pics are THE BEST! I figured with the new influx of sweet babies...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Hope everyone and their little ones enjoyed Halloween! Here's a picture of our little owl. I was surprised at how well she tolerated the costume, hood and all. She actually seemed pretty pleased with herself when I held her up to see in the mirror.

    Day Care

    Yep, all of these questions/concerns were why I initially didn't think in-home was going to work for us. I assumed vacation/sick days for the provider would leave us stuck at home a lot. I was also worried about the one-caregiver issue. Through my interviews, I learned that a LOT of the in-home...

    Day Care

    Quick thoughts on the male issue... I looked at over 20 daycare options for my daughter before landing on one that I felt comfortable with. I looked at larger centers, in-home care options, and nannies. We ended up with an in-home center. Why? Because of the comfort level I felt with the woman...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    Hi, Mamas! It's been forever since I posted, but I have lurked on and off whenever I've had a spare moment (which hasn't been often). It seems like we have some moms moving on to the toddler thread either now or very soon, and I noticed a few ladies moved over from the pregnancy thread to this...

    Carseats and strollers and indecision, oh my!

    We've got the City Mini GT and the Chicco Keyfit30. We went with the GT primarily because of its ease of fold, size, and maneuverability, and I feel like it has met our expectations on those things so far (my daughter is only 3 months, so it's still early). I also opted for the GT over the...

    Let's talk about maternity bras (especially above DDD)...

    Re: Let's talk about maternity bras (especially above DDD).. Hi, Bella! I was a 36DD before pregnancy and had a similar experience to Candy in that mine grew early on in pregnancy and then pretty much stayed the same - I went up to a 38G. I was still wearing the same size the first few months...

    Does Linkedin Work For You?

    We regularly post jobs on LinkedIn. I found two of my team members through LinkedIn... so it worked for them and for me. :bigsmile: My husband has been contacted about several jobs through LinkedIn. Though he hasn't ended up in any of those jobs, he did do a fair amount of interviewing thanks...

    PS Mommy Thread-Newborn to 12 months!

    MP, your work day sounds like mine - LONG! I have a 30 mile one-way commute, so that makes things more complicated. So I anticipate being like you - trying to get as much time as possible with Em, especially after work. I wonder if there is any way I'll be able to fit it in before work, though...

    Hi, NEL. I had the MT21 test, and I know a few others have as well. In case the others don't see or respond to this post, I know there is some info on the JBP thread. I had the test at right around 10 weeks because of my age (37) and a prior miscarriage. Similar to you and your DH, the more...

    So... I just had a semi-exciting morning. I went in to the doctor's office for my 39 week appointment (I'm 39w5d). I've been 1 cm and 50% effaced since they started doing cervical checks at 36 weeks, and there was no change today, so there isn't much action happening. But my blood pressure...
