  • What's your opinion on ITT Tech?

    Have you gone there? What's your opinion?

    I signed up and have been going to classes for about a month. I have a sinking feeling that I REALLY should have done more research into this school. I was basically looking for something that would work with my life (evening classes.) and was accredited. From what I've read online now their accreditation is BS and so is their school!

    Anyone have info on this?

    Should I get out now or is it an "okay" school to attend?

  • Bad stomach pains at 20 weeks?

    I'm just shy of 20 weeks pregnant

    I've become somewhat concerned, tonight and yesterday I've woken up in the middle of the night with bad pains in my stomach, all over, under my belly button, above it, and around it. It's sharp in the middle and kind of radiates outwards.

    I've felt muscle stretches and spasms in my stomach before... so I was a little worried these were more than just "growing pains" especially since they've been strong enough to wake me.

    My tummy is getting a bit bigger... did anyone feel bad pains right before they popped/started showing?

    Or what do contractions feel like? If that's what they are there's def something wrong since I'm only about 20 weeks...so I'm a bit worried that there could be something wrong?

    any insight would be great, I wasn't sure if I should call my doc, if this was normal and I'm just being silly. It's been bad enough to wake me from my sleep though :(

  • If my baby is born in a different state will we be forced to move back to the father's state?

    I wasn't sure where to ask this, but I wanted to know if anyone knew the laws on this.

    I'm 5 months pregnant, me and my baby's father are not legally married, but have been living together for a while. There is no common law marriage in the state we are currently in. We conceived the baby in this state.

    If we were to break up and I move out of state (back to where I'm from) while still pregnant would I be forced to move back to my baby's father's state once the baby is born?

    We have been having some issues and I've told him we either get counseling or I move back home. He keeps saying, "Well you'd just have to move back here when the baby is born."

    Anyone know?

  • Does peanut butter ACTUALLY expire by the date it says on the jar?

    So I've had peanut butter out of a jar a few times this month, I just noticed tonight it says "sell by nov. 08" on it. Woops!

    Does anyone know if it's actually expired by now?

    I know some things last longer than what they are marked...

  • What are some things you can get in America, but not in the UK?

    Hey guys!

    I have a friend over in England and she's always sent me little things (British chocolates and such!)

    I didn't get around to sending her a birthday gift and I feel horrible! She loves America and coming to visit. So I was looking to surprise her with a little package of things she could only get in the US.

    Anyone know of some things you can get in the US, but not in the UK?

  • Does anyone own the Ingrid & Isabel "Everywhere Pant"?

    If you do, can someone tell me how long the inseam is?

    They look great and comfy, but I can't find them in stores and I'd rather not order them online if they are just going to be too short!

  • Tall, thin moms-to-be! Where do you find maternity clothes?

    I am

    15 weeks along

    5'11"

    currently about 120 lbs (yes that's with a little baby pooch)

    size 3 in pants

    with an inseam that is at least 37" long

    Finding a pair of maternity pants smaller than a size 4 is proving to be pretty hard. What's even harder is finding a pair of pants that aren't high waters on me!

    Any other tall thin mommys-to-be on here? Do you know of some affordable places to get maternity pants?

    I've tried Old Navy, they carry longs, but they aren't long enough.

  • What's the etiquette to telling your extended family about a pregnancy?

    This is our first healthy pregnancy, of course we've told our close family ourselves... but is there any "rules" to telling extended family?

    My sister was on the phone with my aunt while me and my husband were sitting there and she kept asking, "Can I tell her? Can I tell her?" So we both shrugged and said, sure.

    Would it have been better if we had told her personally? Same for other relatives?

    I'm not quite sure how to go about announcing this news.

  • Anyone know the origin of the name Briley?

    I actually really love the sound of this name, but some websites I've read it's a made up name, someone just thought Riley would sound cute with a B.

    On other websites I've read that it's an Irish surname and on some a German surname.

    Does anyone know the origin? Is it made up? or is it an actually name (Irish, German, or both?)

  • Having more "interesting" dreams during pregnancy... could this mean I'm having a boy?

    Alright I'm going to try to keep this as PG as possible and yeah it's probably a really odd question but...

    First, I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant.

    I've never been interested in girls, hell...my husband is the only guy I'm interested in and in the past (since I've known him) have only ever had erotic dreams about him.

    Ever since I've become pregnant I've not only had "interesting" dreams about him but, also more commonly in the past week or two, about women? Like I said I've never really been interested in women. I've read that an interpretation of this is that you are appreciating what your body (a woman's body) can do now that you are pregnant.

    I was thinking though, could this mean I'm having a boy if the baby is producing testosterone?

    Tell me if this is just silly, I know I should just chalk it up to weird pregnancy dreams, but my doctor said she thinks the heart beat sounds "girlish" (she said girls usually have faster heart beats) although I've kind of felt more like I was having a boy.

  • Which middle name do you think would go better with the first name Tabitha?

    Tabitha Patricia

    or

    Tabitha Grace

    ..Please don't tell me you hate both, just tell me which out of the two sound better!

    They are after my husbands Grandmothers and since I get to choose the names if it's a boy I let him pick for a girl and those are what he wanted me to choose from!

  • Married women, do you were your wedding ring or your engagement ring?

    I am engaged and love my ring, I think I might wear it instead of my wedding ring once we get married.

    My mother did this also. I'm just curious if this is pretty normal or if most women wear their actual wedding ring?

  • Food poisoning during pregnancy...?

    I'm 12 weeks pregnant...my morning sickness tapered off maybe 2 weeks ago. I haven't been vomiting lately or feeling ill.

    Today however my fiance and I both ate the same fast food. He ended up with diarrhea. I however had diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal cramps. I've been vomiting about every 3 hours. I'm guessing we got food poisoning, I've read that the symptoms are usually worse in pregnant women. Should I call to the doctor tomorrow morning (even if I am feeling better?) or is it something I should just wait out?

  • Can I eat shrimp while pregnant?

    Okay! I know there are so many things you can't have while pregnant... I know there's a lot of seafood I'm suppose to stay away from.

    I'm 11 weeks 3 days pregnant, is it okay for me to eat shrimp cocktail? it's a holiday staple with my family and I looove it. I'm just not sure if it's on the okay list as far as seafood goes...

  • Anyone know where I can get a pair of knee high boots for very skinny calves?

    I am so frustrated! All my life I have not been able to find a pair of boots that aren't huge on my calves and look horrible!

    Anyone know of a site or store that sells boots for very slim girls? I went to Macy's and tried on some, even the ones that supposedly run small in the calves were way too big.

  • Once you can detect a heart beat are the chances of miscarriage reduced?

    I've read here http://pregnancy.baby-gaga.com/calendar/week10 that once you can hear the heartbeat chances of miscarriages are greatly reduced? Anyone know if this is true? This is the only place I've read this.

    I'm just curious because I had low progesterone, but we heard the heart beat last week! Does that really mean I should breath that long awaited sigh of relief or should I hold out a little longer until I get to my second trimester?

  • What happens if I forget to take my progesterone?

    Okay, I'm 9 weeks 5 days pregnant. My progesterone was 14.7 so they put me on suppositories a month or so ago. I've forgotten before to take them (I'm suppose to take them at night and I've fallen asleep before I've meant to.) and I've ended up with diarrhea before. I've also had light spotting along with it. Now I was told, oh well diarrhea could just be your body combating the constipation you've been having.

    But I'm always constipated..the ONLY time I've gotten very watery stool is when I forget my meds... as this happened again.

    I've read that watery stool while pregnant isn't usually a good sign. Could I be threatening to miscarriage because I forget my meds?

    I ask because out of the little over a month I've been taking them I've forgotten three times and my fiance doesn't really like me taking them to begin with (he doesn't see the connection between the meds and the baby being alright, all he sees is that when I take my meds I vomit every half hour, when I forget them I feel fine.) so he's not very good at reminding me.

    I just want to know if at this stage, almost 10 weeks... will I miscarry if I forget my meds too often?
