• Lucky,
    I was told that you are supposed to wake the baby up at night to feed her. Granted it’s great that she’s sleeping at night, but she’s only 10 weeks, that can cause a drop in your supply.

  • Wow Mellow!! I am sorry that you have to deal with that!! I’m sorry for your DH’s uncle too. That’s sad 🙁 I hope for you guys, things get better.

  • I can’t believe the stories that I am hearing, I am so sorry for you guys! I have a great MIL, she doesn’t really get involved unless we need her. As for the one taking the daughter and has her calling her mommy, that’s nuts!! And if my MIL ever HIT me, she wouldn’t be in my house either!

  • Hi everyone, My husband was just home for R&R, and we were trying to get pregnant (R&R baby,lol) He left 7 days ago. I am 3 days late for AF. I’m tired, I get dizzy, I have no appetite at all, so I took a test and it says negitive. He said it’s because it’s too early, but then why would AF be late? I’m so confused and anxious…Any insight would…[Read more]

    lili-d, stick with it. You may find some times harder than others, but your soldier needs you just as much as you need him. He’s making a life for you. The best thing that you can do is support him and smile even when it’s the toughest times! The military wife’s job is the hardest, but in the end it’s the most rewarding!! Good luck to you and your family!

    I know what it feels like to have to leave your baby and it’s horrible! I left my son when he was just 2 to go to Iraq for a year. When I got him back, he was not the same boy that I left. We went through almost a year of therapy because he had emotional issues and was so angry. It’s not worth it. You can get another job anywhere and still be home…[Read more]

  • Mythreebears, you did your part. Now the ball is in her court. If she chooses to ignore you and change nothing, that’s on her, at least you can say you made an effort and tried! You can’t make anyone do anything they don’t want to do, believe me, I have been trying to get my MIL involved in this pregnancy and she just doesn’t care. You did enough,…[Read more]

  • So I got a funny one today… My baby is getting baptized and it’s a tradition that there are 5 Godmother and 5 Godfathers, well my MIL in throwing the party afterwards for the baby and she is also sending out the invites to the family because she has their addresses and i don’t ( which after this may change!) Well, she calls me today and tells me…[Read more]

    My husband and I are trying to get pregnant with our last baby. The first day of my last cycle was Feb 20, My husband was home on R&R from Iraq from March 1st-16th. ITechnically I am 2 days late, but my periods aren’t always regular. I am having cramps like I am getting my cycle, and my stomach is queezy. I’m exhausted, but I may just be tired…[Read more]

  • My MIL used my DH for money a bunch of times! Gave her 10 grand for a time share, she hasn’t paid back a cent. Had the nerve to ask me to take out 100 grand loan and give her 50 of it and she’ll help pay it back. Yeah right lady! It’s always about money, it’s the root of all evil! I don’t get soo much involved with her anyways, she has a lot of nerve.

  • I’m 3 days late for my period…Have some slight cramps, but test says negative, i’m a little worried. My period isn’t usually late. I’m tired, I get dizzy and I have no desire to eat, but my breasts aren’t sore..What do I do now?

    Hello everyone,
    I am 29 weeks along and planning on breast feeding. I have read soo much and have signed up for all the classes and even joing our local LLL, but I still feel unprepared. Is there any advice that you can give me or websites that are helpful?
    Thank you!!!

  • This is our 3rd baby. My husband deployed a few weeks after my son was born. It was hard, but I knew he had to go. I kept him updated everyday with photos and videos and we webcamed everyday so at least he got to see him. You ladies just have to put yourniron hearts on and support your men, it’ll be fine. My husband came home right after our sons…[Read more]
