  • I met my husband at a party (Old School Saturday in Atlanta).8)
  • Did Aretha forget some of the word? I got lost in the histrionics. I loved the ceremony overall!
  • Interesting topic... IMO, the distinction is authentic and / or spontaneous vs learned behavior. Most of what I've seen of shouting and falling out is learned behavior. I wouldn't necessarily called learned behavior or learned patterns of worsh…
  • Congratulations and best wishes!!
  • I Believe in You and Me

  • I'd be offended at the intentional deception, and it would affect our friendship in some way. My husband and I would get a gooood laugh out of it, along with everyone else that I'd tell, and I would never carry the bag.
  • ‘Housewives’ star forced to move from Duluth home Eviction notice ‘none of your business,’ NeNe Leakes writes http://www.accessatlanta.com/entertainment/content/entertainment/stories/2008/12/02/housewives_leakes_move.html
  • I got pregnant this year, right before my 35th bday. It took a few months of tracking my ovulation/fertility. I used a Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor to take out the guesswork... just my personality. ) I didn't like that AMA label either. …
  • I had a baby on 10/21/08 and used a doula. I paid $525 out of pocket for her services. She has no children and apparently never will based on her bio (ie, "not in God's plan for her life journey"). Not sure if there's a medical issue; I didn't as…

  • I got my eyebrows threaded for a while, but it was at one of those places where you get in the chair and two minutes later, you're done. They didn't ask me what I wanted or really shape my brows to my face. I had to bite the bullet and let the b…

  • Keewee, my heart goes out to you. I know you're hurting, and I understand your perspective. I wouldn't want the framed picture displayed in my home either right now. I do not see your attitude toward the half-sibling as a rejection of your own ch…
  • Hi everyone, Another update - it looks like my milk has definitely come in! I was able this evening to pump (manually still) a total of 2 oz from both breasts! I will give to my daughter at her next feeding. The lactation dept at the hospital …
  • An update - Zorah had her first pediatrician visit today. She has gained about 4 oz (up to 5 lbs 11 oz) since leaving the hospital on Thursday. I felt pretty good about that. I know it's due in part to the supplementation, but...oh well...She's d…
  • Thanks to everyone who has responded. I appreciate your suggestions and well wishes. Zorah and I (and DH) are still working through our issues. We have begun to supplement her with more formula. I began to be very concerned about her sleeping alm…
  • I'm disappointed with DH this season. It doesn't really seem to be about anything. Just a bunch of petty, mundane crap going on. There doesn't seem to be anything that justifies the 5 year leap forward. And shouldn't Nancy Grace be reporting on …
  • Everyone's so genteel. LOL My husband and I will blow each other out of the room, car whatever. hahaha oh well He's worse than me though. lol He says he's going to tone it down when our baby is born. I'd like to see that. lol
  • Hey - I'm checking in from Atlanta/Decatur! I had thought that the shortage was a bit "self-induced" or only affecting parts of the city b/c I'd had no trouble getting gas. My tank is just shy of full. But today, I drove from Buckhead to Decatu…
  • I think the default position of public toilet seats should be up for cleanliness.
  • Palin's voice reminds me of the mother's voice on the show Aliens in America.
  • I watched it. It was painful, but I watched it. Her answers were very hollow in most instances. It was obvious to me that she'd been extremely coached in her responses. Referencing Abraham Lincoln in regards to her comment about people going t…
  • I considered popularity. I like older names, nothing trendy. The name we've picked for our little girl (due in Nov.) was very popular in the late 1800's and totally fell out of use by the 1930's (per baby naming wizard). It's not unheard of tho…

  • During my 28 week appointment, I asked my doctor if my baby was breech, and he kind of blew me off, imo. He said, "oh the baby doesn't get into fixed position until about 6 weeks before birth. It's just floating now." I always feel my baby righ…
  • You know, I just have to wonder what these girls were really seeing or perceiving as reality. The story talked about how supportive the high school was of teen mothers. But what about after high school? Did the post-high school girls just drop of…
  • I read the story and clicked through the pics. I still don't understand how this was possible. I mean, it obviously happened, but how was such a surgery possible? When they took her out of the womb, didn't they have to pierce the sac she was in? …
  • Thank you all for your responses! I appreciate the advice. I've discussed the classes some w/my husband, and he was not excited about the 12 week time frame. I've ordered some natural birth books from amazon, including one on the bradley method…
