  • My 9 months old won't feed himself?

    My baby just turned 9 months old, eats baby food and the stage 3 foods, he started eating food in very small chunks and he is doing great so far, I also bought those Gerber snack puffs and he loves it, the thing is he just opens his mouth for me to feed him, he would try to finger grasp the puff but he will just play with it but not put it on his mouth, he would just open his mouth waiting for me to feed him. Is it normal at this age? What can I do to help him figure out that once he picks the puff he must place it in his mouth. I tried to show him but still not doing it. Any help would be appreciated!

  • 39 weeks pregnant not sure about labor?

    For the past 2 days I have been having pains down my lower back around my sides and down my belly. The pains in my back feel like they are getting worse. Pains yesterday would go away, definitely more frequent today. Had them all day . They are stronger but not unbearable. I feel my stomach contracting at the top a lot. Is this the start of labor. This is my first pregnancy any advice?

  • 371/2 weeks and not sure whats going on?

    I went to my ob yesterday, and he checked me, said my cervix is softening and I am dilated 1 cm. He also said I may have some light spotting because of it. I actually have some brown spotting and he told me its prob some old blood because he " disturbed things" in there. Now today its still there a little, but I have been noticing a mucusy, thicker consistency to it ( sorry if it sounds gross but I figure the serious people on here know what I mean) My question is, is this the start of my mucus plug? Could my appointment yesterday help dislodge it? I know my labor could still be some time away but does anyone have any personal experience with this and if so, how soon after did you go into labor.

    Thanks!

  • Beagle going through the garbage ?

    In October I adopted an 8 yr old beagle and she is great, she is trained, never had a problem until the middle of January she started knocking over the garbage. She only seems to do it when we are at work. We can't even leave anything on the kitchen table ( she finds a way to knock it down) It's to the point where we have to put the garbage in the bathroom, I woke up to pee in the middle of the night the other night and forgot to shut the door , 2 hours later, I hear her knock it down. I am so tired of having to be paranoid about leaving something on the table or in a place where she may reach it. I just don't get it? Her food has been right next to the garbage for months and now all of a sudden she keeps going for it. I can't Even yell at her because I never catch her in the act. Any advice? How do I go about disciplining her? Could there be something wrong with her? I am so afraid she going to eat something and get really sick

  • weird spasms in uterus ?

    I am not even sure how to really describe it. I am 26 1/2 weeks pregnant with my first child, so this is all new to me and I have no history to compare it to. It has been happening off and on , more so the past few days. It's really low, and it doesn't hurt just feels really weird. I don't know if it's my uterus contracting, or opening? It happens over and over for a little bit. Should I be worried? Should I call my doctor. I notice I feel dampness down there. It's like pressure. Is he just laying really low. Advice please!!

  • Almost 17 weeks pregnant and lifted something heavy.......?

    Last night I did something stupid. I was on the couch and my dog wanted to come up ( shes old and needs help sometimes) so I stretched over to the other side of my couch and grabbed her butt ( shes like 45lbs) and when I did I realized she was too heavy but if I let her go she would have fallen, so I pushed her up as hard as I could. And when I sat up I felt a pain on my left side just above and around where my ovaries are. It's not sharp but still there today. Now i'm nervous, do you think I could have done something bad ? Did I pull something? I have an apt on the 5th , should I just wait? I know pregnant women are not supposed to do all the things I just mentioned, I'm stupid, I know. Any advice???

  • sharp vaginal pains at 15weeks?

    Hello. I am 15 weeks pregnant w/ #1. I have been having sharp pains up in side my vagina ( near the pubic bone i guess) I had these pains before ( like around 11 weeks) but they kind of went away. Now I have been getting them for like 3 days straight. They come and go, but now i'm not sure if its just my ligaments still stretching out or something more ? What do you think? Anyone with similar experience?

  • 14 1/2 weeks and still can't shower in the morning?

    Ever since i've been pregnant I have not been able to take a shower in the morning without getting extremely nauseous or throwing up. Why is that ? Do you think its the hot water? The bending to shave, shaking my head when I wash my hair? A combination of all these things? Hormones? Does this happen to anyone else? Everyone I ask looks at me like i'm nuts. Any suggestions?

  • Shooting pains that go up my vagina ?

    I am ten weeks pregnant with my first child and last night lying in bed I started getting these sharp shooting pains going up my vagina. It would come and go off and on for like 20min, then I fell asleep so I assume they stopped, then at like 4pm today they started again off and on for like 45min, and now . It started like a 1/2 hour ago, coming and going. What do you think it is? Do you think it could be the start of a miscarriage? I know I should call my doctor but I don't want to be the lady that calls about every little pain I have. Anyone with pains like this before this early in pregnancy? Very worried!!

  • I have a question about ovarian cysts and conception?

    I am a healthy 25 yr. old , who has been trying to conceive since Sept. (I also stopped taking birth control in Sept.) About a year ago I had a cyst on one of my ovaries but after a few mths. it went away .My period was really late recently, and I was having pains again like I did when I had my cyst, so I didn't think I was pregnant but I took a test anyway, it came out neg. I was about 25 days late and got nervous, so I called my doctor and made an appt., told the nurse I thought I had another cyst. She sounded as though she didn't know what they could do for me but made an appt. for this Fri.Now my questions are....Should I still go to the doctor to see if it is a cyst? Do you think it went away because I got my period? Are the two even tied together? and does having this cyst affect my chances of conceiving? Is their anything I can do to conceive even though I have a cyst?

    Sorry their are so many questions, but I really need some answers...

    Thank you

  • Has anyone who has had ovarian cysts in the past have trouble conceiving ?

    I am a healthy, 25 year old woman who has been ttc for 7 months now. I have been off the pill since the first week in September. About a year ago I had a cyst, but after a few ultrasounds(months) it went away. I think I have another one, my period is over 20 days late, and i took hpt yesterday and it was negative. I made an appointment with my DR. but , I made it for next Friday to see if I get my AF still. I am so tired, physically ,emotionally. I am not obsessing about it either, for like 3 months I didn't count days, think about it much, or even come on here, but I am annoyed! I don't want to go back on the pill if it is a cyst. Does anyone have any expierience with this type of situation? Any advice? Can you still get pregnant even though you have a cyst on one side? So confused and in pain.Help!! I just feel like I am going to cry......
