• Is it illegal to pretend a baby you are babysitting for is yours?

    My 23 year old niece has always had mental problems but never enough to really warrant therapy (which she refused to do anyway) or committment. SHe has faked 6 pregnancies and is now parading a baby around as if it were her own. We have no doubt she has never been preg, and there are a hundred inconsistencies in her story.

    My 23 year old niece has always had mental problems but never enough to really warrant therapy (which she refused to do anyway) or committment. SHe has faked 6 pregnancies and is now parading a baby around as if it were her own. We have no doubt she has never been preg, and there are a hundred inconsistencies in her story. The problem is, is it really illegal for her to pretend this baby is hers as long as she returns it to her rightful parents? Its' a baby she babysits for and we dont know who the parents are (she locks us out of her life alot)_and we're sure the parents do not know she's doing this. She's told her father and ex boyfriend that the baby is hers (and his) even tho it doesnt look ANYthing like either of them. (They're white, baby has asian in her.) Can we involve the police, mental health, what? We want to get her help but don't know where to go.

  • Would a doctor check you internally to adjust a baby?

    I am trying to basically catch someone in a lie. I can find nothing online to back up her statement. She claims her baby (which no one can verify exsists) had to be 'repositioned' because of the cord around his neck. She said the doc put one hand on her belly and pushed and then 'guided' the baby with one hand inside of her. Now I... show more

She said the doc put one hand on her belly and pushed and then 'guided' the baby with one hand inside of her. Now I have had a child and to the best of my knowledge you cannot feel the baby nor touch it unless your water has broken and you are dilated to a certain point. She claims she's not in labor, no dilation, nothing. To my knowledge, the doc can only feel your cervix when they check you internally until u dilate. Anyone have any knowledge on this? (long story short, her entire family believes she's made the whole preg up, she's a long time liar.We want to get her mental help but have no way to do so bc she refuses help. But thats' beside the point!) Thanks!

    Hi. We are traveling again this year from New Orleans to Denver for a week long trip. Last year was the first time I"d flown in awhile and I will be six mos preg, with my husband, and our toddler son. We will have a good bit of luggage and Im hoping a speedy sky hop will come running when they see me waddling around! I really have no idea how much to tip them...I think I overtipped last year bc the one guy seemed VERY happy with what I tipped! And also, some airlines have that service where u can check your bags before you even get in the airport, do you tip that person? Thanks, any help would be appreciated as it will be difficult to lug around all that luggage and a toddler, so I want to tip appropriately and maybe slightly more than usual. Thanks!

  • Suggestions for putting antibiotic ointment in my cats wound?

    Hi. I took my cat to the vet today bc he had an abcess on his face (apparently he's a bad fighter--yes he's neutered, he just apparently sucks at fighting!!) He's had this several times before but this time the doc didnt have to lance it, he just pushed and it popped. He got most of the gunk out but it's still draining. I'm... show more
    Hi. I took my cat to the vet today bc he had an abcess on his face (apparently he's a bad fighter--yes he's neutered, he just apparently sucks at fighting!!) He's had this several times before but this time the doc didnt have to lance it, he just pushed and it popped. He got most of the gunk out but it's still draining. I'm supposed to give him oral antibiotics and put this neosporin-like ointment in his wound. Here's my question, I'm supposed to help drain the wound a couple of times a day and twice a day put this ointment IN the wound. Does anyone have an suggestions on how i can help do this without beign clawed to death?? Its all pretty gross but I want him to get better but I'm picturign how in the heck to put this ointment in without him clawing me like crazy. I know to scruff him and wrap him in a towel and I"ll have my hsuband to help but if anyone has any other ideas, I'd appreciate it!!!

    Hi! I live in Louisiana, and we are so confused! We are trying to figure out the best way to file our exemption. Right now we have it as Married and 2. Is this right? My husband is the only one who works. I stay home with our son and am pregnant, baby not due til 08. What I"m looking for is, to get more money in our weekly take home pay but to still not have to pay in April. In the past he'd been Single and 1. So we got a huge refund. I'd rather just have that money each week. So is Married and 2 the right way to do this? Thank you so much for any help!!
