Heh. Unfortunately she declined, but I scrounged around and found several other possibilities. I told the bride tonight and she took it well... still feel bad, though!

I'm 6 weeks today and we've already told quite a few people. Prior to this I was a 'wait until 12 weeks except for a few family members' person, but we did that with my last pregnancy and then found...

My last pregnancy ended in m/c, so like starsmagick I'm waiting for my early scan. The waiting is hard, but doing the whole "Well, we can't see a...

Ha! Update.

So yesterday DH and I watched 'Coherence', a rather good scifi film shot with a SteadiCam, and I felt really ghastly and nauseated afterwards. It isn't the first time that's happened -...

Oh, I'm quite onboard with my GP being an idiot, for various reasons. :p

The trouble is, I used to know all this stuff years ago, but I've forgotten it. I don't have a copy of Toni Weschler - I...

Can anyone help me out with my chart?

So I had a missed miscarriage in May. We waited one cycle as we were advised before TTC again. The 'in-between' period was normal in duration and heaviness.

Then the next month, I had a very weird...

Honestly, I'm really glad I'm small-busted. A few years ago my mother - who is also flat-chested and has apparently been sensitive about it her whole life - kind of 'apologised' to me for passing...

I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, I've read enough books and blogs and studies about violence towards women that I feel I should nod sagely and say it's very, very common. It is, so they say.

Hmm. I've never greased my Dutch oven or had a problem with sticking. Is yours enameled? I use a really big oval Dutch oven. The bread isn't supposed to fill it up like bread dough in a loaf tin -...

I am so, so sick of the constant hate directed at non-vaccinators by people who haven't done a lick of research into the issue.

First there was that ridiculous Upworthy infographic which was...

Oven spring? Cook it in a Dutch oven. Night and day, seriously.

I use a big oval enamelled cast-iron one. First I heat the oven up HOT - 250C - for about 25 minutes. Then I pop the loaf (boule,...

Are you 100% convinced about that decision? My feeling is that it'd be impolite to go without a gift, even a small one. It's her first wedding (presumably?), and custom states that if you go to a...
