Expecting

  1. Expecting Am I pregnant?...(more) 6-30-2015 11:54am (15 replies)
    I took 3 pregnancy tests after my period had been two days late (it is almost always on time) and 2/3 of the tests had a very faint positive line. The 3rd test that came out negative was done by dipping it in a cup, and the others were peed on. Has anyone else experienced a negative test with the cup that actually ended up being pregnant? I need some advice. This would be my first pregnancy.

    • You are probably PG, BUT the negative could be an indicator of a very early MC or failure of the PG to thrive. Cup or stream makes no differnce (although time of day and how long...(more) 6-30-2015 11:57am

  25. Expecting Soon to be mom...(more) 11-18-2014 12:48pm (9 replies)
    I'm in my last trimester and trying to navigate the whole nanny versus daycare decision. Right now I WOH part time, 3d/week. The days I do work can get pretty long eg. 7:30 to 6:30. DH could do pickups, but he generally gets out at ~5:30. Financially we would be fine if I was a SAHM. I always thought I would SAH eventually. But I enjoy my work, get along with my co-workers, have a 5 min commute and am in a field where it's harder to stay current if I'm not working at least part-time (medicine). Also, I think it would be difficult to find another position like my current one.

    • three days per week is ideal, but get a nanny. That's too long of a day in daycare. 11-18-2014 12:51pm

        • OP: Why a nanny at first if you love daycare? Daycare seems to have more structure and routine built in. But as a FTM, I have no idea... 11-18-2014 12:58pm

          • daycare is great for the 2yo's and up, but babies need more one on one time, IMO. But either works if you find the right one. 11-18-2014 12:59pm
