Hi all, I've checked in here once before and wanted to stop by and ask a question. How soon can I talk a pregancy test? I'm late.........one day .
Yep, he's sexy! Been together ten years and it just gets better! Of course it helps that we're TTC right now, which puts me in that mindframe, but I know other people think he's good looking..he's had co-workers comment He's the only male in his office of about 20 ppl, but he's so ethical, and we're so in love, I've never felt uneasy about the gals there.
At 16 I though I would be a journalist...I still thought that at 18, and my parents, friends and teachers from high school have never forgiven me for deciding against college in favor of making a family.

Our one big expense...

I ff'd dd after 6 wks because I got a very nasty systemic infection from a dirty IUD being inserted (lovely eh?). I had a very high fever and PPD, and was sick in bed for a few weeks. My supply was greatly diminished and my babe started to lose weight. I felt so ill that I was glad when the ped. suggested that dh start ffing so that I could rest and get better. I though...sure, breast is best, but formula will suffice. However, if I had been told that formula could...
Do you get flakes of rust in your tea?
My mom gave me areally cool-looking heavy cast iron tea kettle yesterday. It's rusted on the inside, and while I know how to fix this with a cast-iron skillet, what on earth should I do for a tea kettle? It there any way to use it to heat water without it rusting all the time? Brandy
