How do you deal with stress?

I’m just wondering how other parents deal with the stress and how to go about the opposite parent telling the children lies and bullcrap to make them look better than the other? We’ve been apart for seven years and are currently in court figuring out a new custody plan, due to drugs and bad parenting on their side.. but him and his wife continue to tell the children nonsense things that make me look like the worst person in the world every single weekend they actually show up to get them.

Has anyone had a hysterectomy before 30?

Has anyone had a hysterectomy before age 30? I cant this anymore; I’m seriously going insane. I had my 2nd c-section on September 17. The postpartum bleeding was intense. I had my IUD placed at my six-week p.p. visit. There was so much blood. Still, the doctor had to shut down the exam room to be cleaned. October 21, I started my first period since being pregnant. It’s still going. I’m changing super plus absorbency tampons every 3 hours. And I’m still leaking into overnight pads. The doc started me on a hormone to try and ease them, and it’s not working.

What can I do for a cold sore while pregnant?

Curious as to what you mamas do for cold sores while pregnant. I only usually get them while pregnant. But if I do get them while I’m not pregnant, I take lysine right away, and it usually helps. I think this one is a little too far progressed for lysine to work, but I was wondering if any of you mamas took it while pregnant? I know on the bottle it says not too because there haven’t been enough studies, but I can’t get in to see my doctor get Valtrex until Monday Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

Is it normal to cramp in early pregnancy?

I just found out I was pregnant. I went to the doctor for what I thought was a uti, because I was having back pain and small cramps every once in a while. Turns out it was a baby!!! Yay! Is cramps and back pain normal? There is no blood. The cramps are not terrible and are mostly when I lay down. I didn’t have cramps with my first.
