|Something to consider for any of you out there who are very skinny- My naturopath told me I might not be able to get pregnant unless I gain some weight. She says nursing moms need to have 80 grams of protein a day ( Like 6 servings) And to be plentiful in eating good fats. I've been keeping a food diary and it's really helping me not miss snacks, keep my blood sugar even, and hopefully gain a few pounds!|

My story is somewhat similar - I have been struggling in a friendship for years now. She is/was a wonderful friend for so long, but since our kids have come along, I see huge difference in the way we parent. We are at total opposite ends of the spectrum. And she has had 1 child in the time that we were ttc (or trying to induce AF back) and is now pg with yet another child (boo hoo..."and we weren't even trying!!") And every few days...so "are you pg YET??, are you even having sex??," and she reminds me almost daily how "improper" and borderline "abusive" that I nurse my 3 year old. Once they turn 6 weeks, and they wake up, she is done. Sad.
The apparent "competition" (as she sees it) is really getting in the way with our friendship. And I have a feeling that this long lasting friendship is soon going to end.
