A glowing commendation for all to see

Show nature some love.

  1. It's the same bit of skin and nerves as the back of the entrance to the vagina! Not trying to derail the BJ convo, but the same attention feels very very nice there on most vulvas as it does on penises. I say this since the partner and I just learned it a few months back. Is nice.

  2. Think again. Oh wait you people don’t think humans in the womb are humans. Even more ridiculous.

  3. Until the fetus can live outside mom, it's not a separate human. Women have body autonomy just like men do - can't make someone donate organs, can't make someone donate blood, can't make someone give birth.

  4. Even if you're in favor of allowing it in case of the mother's life being in danger, banning other abortions makes doctors hesitate and leaves them untrained. Savita Halappanivar's abortion would have been legal, but the doctors weren't sure and now she's dead.

  5. Yep, I'm pro choice in all circumstances for this reason -- plus many others. Trust women!

  6. You're adorable. How easy it is to judge someone else's experience across the internet. Prodromal labor that goes on for weeks is very real and was very much confirmed by my OB.

  7. Prodromal in medicine just means "early". They still consider it labor, ya judgey noodle. I linked you to the literal definition. It's real labor, it hurts, the contractions aren't BH, it's exhausting, you dilate, contractions come in waves - it's just that contractions don't get closer than 4-5 minutes for long enough. Mine would stay at 7-10 minutes apart at 60-90 sec durations for weeks, sometimes speeding up to 2 minute intervals but never staying that way longer than an hour or so.

  8. I majored in physics and do HPC research. My husband is an electrical and computer engineer. The number of people who think EM waves are new since the age of electricity is entirely, entirely too high.

  9. This one sounds a bit vain, but it was hard for me.

  10. Could you possibly call your doctor and let him/her know what’s happening?

  11. We have the same difficulties. Go to the pediatrician, they can help you. Seriously, this happens sometimes.

  12. Go to the hospital, or call your OB immediately. Better to be checked than take a single risk, seriously. A headache like that killed a beloved (male and not pregnant) friend of mine. It can also be a sign of preeclampsia and other BP issues.

  13. I make so so so much milk when breastfeeding. So much. It hurts, and it's a huge mess, and it is SO MUCH WORK.

  14. Ah, you tough lady. You are not a wimp. You are strong, you did this without good medical support or care OR pain relief. You are a damn goddess, and you are so brave.

  15. Shea moisture is a good start point. Their kids line is decent.

  16. Time to put up some rainbow siding and hang a few stars of David in your window.

  17. Oh yeah. "Baby race" makes me bawl. Every time. And I'm not a teary TV watcher.

  18. Can you ask for nausea meds? I get hyperemesis, so I only survive with the baby due to meds. There are very safe and effective options, pregnancy is so so so hard but doesn't have to be THAT hard.

  19. Context: I haven’t been able to care for my yard as much as I would like over the past few months because we had our second child back in February and I’ve been single-handedly caring for the newborn and our 5 year old while my wife has been in the hospital recovering from postpartum complications. At no point has my yard been out of compliance with city or HOA ordinances, and at no point has anyone bothered to approach me directly about the matter. Instead, we just received this anonymous passive-aggressive letter in the mail. They even postmarked it and sent it through the mail, rather than walking a few doors down and speaking to me like a human being.

  20. Jesus. I have lots of neighbors with kids (a few of my own too), and lots of elderly neighbors. I'd sooner just ask if I could mow for them than be so mean, though realistically I just don't care about other people's lawn care.

  21. It'll come, lady. I'm so sorry you're suffering.

  22. Every kid is different and comes with a different "natural" schedule. Sleep training isn't magic or universal, far from it.

  23. Yeah— I think a pediatrician will give you some support. Mine recommended sleep training. He pointed out the multiple methods, but basically supported us in not feeding her in the night and helping her fall back to sleep on her own.

  24. Exactly! It was because we went to the pediatrician (instead of throwing things at the wall until they stuck) that we found out one kiddo has a form of sensory processing disorder. His OT specialist was able to help us get his sleep sorted. The expert opinions were 110% better than any "magic sleep training" crap the internet will pour out. Not that doing your own reading is a bad thing, or having new ideas and etc. But experts are awesome.

  25. Do you have the means to hire a doula? POC doulas can be a real voice for the mother's wishes.

  26. Do you get an entire day each week where you don’t have to be responsible for your child and get to go enjoy a hobby? If the answer is no then this isn’t equitable and could turn into a point of resentment.

  27. Right here, OP. Fight for equal workload.

  28. Parents have a better pulse on these things. If you think something is wrong, you should trust yourself. If you can talk to the owner about your kid's difficulties, that would be a good start. If they brush you off? Red flags. Maybe find another daycare option?

  29. CIO is not for toddlers. It's not really even recommended for babies, but definitely not for toddlers.
