  • weight question for my preggo mommas?

Im currently preggers with my 2nd baby and only 8 weeks and already gained 9 pounds. I feel like i cant stop thinking about food this time around and that im gonna be a blimp. With my first i gained 40 and it took me forever to loose it.

  • buying a house and credit question......?

    OK so we went and prequalified for a home loan and our credit check went fine got the prequal letter and have already found the house we are hoping to buy, inspections will start this week..

    my question is since they ran our credit for the first check we have since been getting calls and letters from a debt collector that has already dropped off our report after the 7 years, they say they know we are either refinancing or applying for a loan and are still trying to get their money back. Since it has already dropped off our report can they bring it back on and make us lose our loan or are we safe and shouldnt worry about it and move forward with the inspections anyways?

    IM concerned cause they run your credit again right at the end during the underwriting process and i dont want to be out a couple grand from inspections and fees and then find out that our score dropped cause it got re added and dropped our score to where we dont qualify anymore.

    please help

  • Normal for a 1 yr old whos getting aprx. 2 teeth and a molar in suddenly......?

    my daughter just turned 1 early this past Dec and she has popped both side bottom teeth and i think she may be popping a molar now as well. Now shes had a runny nose for about 3 weeks now that i just attributed to her teething and now shes getting a rash on one cheek about the cheek bone area and the runny nose has now seemed to get her all congested and shes having really wet coughs. I have tried ailttle dimetapp to help the congestion and doesnt seem to help plus i have a vaporizer going 24/7 in her room where she spends alot of time during the day playing and watching cartoons...

    im wondering if i should make an appt with her doc about the cough or if its something thats typical do to the excess fluid that dripping from her nose, the fluid is clear but its constantly dripping

  • childs birthday near xmas...?

    ok so my daughters birthday is on the 3rd of dec. and this year will be her first bday! Now my question is:

    Is it wrong of me to get mad at people for combining her birthday and xmas presents together in one gift?

    i feel its very wrong and inconsiderate. She deserves 2 special days not only 1!

    I have an older sister whos birthday is on the 15th of dec. and it happend alot to her growing up and i saw how disappointed it made her feel, she said that growing up she felt like no one was thinking of her on xmas because most everyone said that the gift she got was for both!

    im even considering having a bday party a few months early so that this doesnt become an issue with me and everyone else, everyone that ive said something to has said that its the thought that matters and i couldnt agree more but shes a child and she deserves to be thought of on both days!

    please tell me what you think

  • personal budgeting for stay at home mom?

    OK so i just downloaded a tool to help start a budget for me and my husband i want to stop working and stay home with our 7 month old baby. According to the tool after everything is paid for the month we will have 24% of our monthly income left over. which is about 550 dollars. I am curious if you think that im being selfish or if maybe that isnt enough of left over money at the end of the month? In my budget i included food, gas, credit cards, rent, utilities, household items ect.. so that 24% is really extra money. My husband is freaking out and i think hes overreacting, please let me know what you think and if there are guidelines you should follow when setting up a budget

    thanks in advance

    i know this is the wrong category really but i always get good answers here

  • 6 week old baby...........?

    My 6 week old baby girl wants to eat every 2-3 hours still. She eats anywhere from 2-6 ounces of formula everytime we start with 4 and if shes still hungry we give her 2 more.

    She does have a long sleep pattern at night where she will go about5-6 hours without waking to feed (which i might add is nice)

    My question is when do the feedings go longer in between? And she was born at 8.3 and is now just over 10 pounds is this to much to gain in such a young baby so fast? At what rate did your infant gain weight?
