New research by the University of Warwick in England shows that the tone parenting books are written in sets unrealistic standards and makes new moms feel woefully inadequate.
You may find that some of the expectations you had for your first weeks with new baby are far from the reality. Below you will find some of our favorite mom-to-mom tips for helping you through this initial honeymoon period with your new baby:
Hi I am Kahliah and I am going to be starting the process to make a baby. I am will be 29 soon and I did want I wanted with my career but I forgot to have a baby?! LOL I am at the point in my life where I would like to have a child. I am about 80% ready. I am no longer looking for the right man of my dreams, now I am looking for the right sperm! :)
I am learning as much as I can about Artificial insemination before I take the leap. I have read more books then I wanted to on being a single mother. My mom was a single mother for most of my life and she did a good job.
Hi! I have looked through the multitude of questions, but have found none quite like my own. I have recently found out that I am 9 weeks pregnant. I asked my doctor about diet and exercise (I am in good shape and exercise a lot) to which his response was to change nothing.
I am not the healthiest eater but I'm thin. I go to websites and friends and all I hear are "the first trimester is the most critical, make sure you're..." from eating more frequent healthy snacks, to slowing my exercise, to no heavy lifting. I just don't know where to begin.
I took at at home pregnancy test March 3rd (actually, 10 home pregnancy test...all showed up positive in less than a minute!). I had a blood test done March 5th to confirm my pregnancy. My first ultrasound/obgyn appointment is March 25th at 9:15. I have so many different emotions going through my head right now it's hard to even sit down and concentrate long enough to write this entry!
