    [–] First day with my daughter Trustme_ima_doctor12 59 points ago in aww

    Its generally an easily accessible vein in a newborn. Getting an IV in a hand or arm is possible but the one on the forehead is easier and often larger.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Trustme_ima_doctor12 68 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    For me it is only the older generation who makes comments on my appearance. I’ve never had anyone close to my age say something inappropriate about my looks, except for psych patients which doesn’t really count.

    [–] I just need some help collecting my thoughts. Trustme_ima_doctor12 67 points ago in beyondthebump

    I think sitting down and reading this to him WITH a counselor would be the best option. You need an unbiased third person there to keep him from deflecting or putting the blame back on you. Your letter is well written and I think you need to get this information out to him before you implode. Good luck.

    [–] What week does the ‘glowing’ start? Trustme_ima_doctor12 3 points ago in BabyBumps

    Infant? You mean toddler right? Cause none of mine slept through the night during the infant stage. I have no hope the third one will either

    [–] STMs+, just how true is this? Trustme_ima_doctor12 1 points ago in beyondthebump

    100% truth. First child is a kind, sweet, smart, gentle boy. Second is a miniature terrorist hell bent on destroying the world.

    [–] EMT (dis)Service Trustme_ima_doctor12 163 points ago in TalesFromTheCustomer

    You should be able to figure out who their medical director is (physician who oversees their policies) and contact that person. He or she would be pissed that they left a person unable to transport themselves to the ER. Everywhere I’ve worked they have to transfer if the patient requests it. Because if you died on that floor they would be liable.

    [–] My MIL wanted me to use cloth diapers. Trustme_ima_doctor12 1 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    My MIL tried to convince my husband we needed cloth diapers with our first. And this was very early in our relationship (accidental pregnancy) so he was leaning towards agreeing with her. Until I reminded him how much we hate doing laundry. I mean is that gonna magically change once the majority of our laundry is covered in pee and poop!?! I think it’s great if cloth diapers work for people, but we are not those people!

    [–] JNMIL tried to pick up my son from daycare without my knowledge Trustme_ima_doctor12 5 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    My mom is on the pick up list at my kids school and gets them frequently. And if someone doesn’t recognize her they ask who she is and verify she is allowed to get them. As it should be! I would be super pissed at your daycare. That is not safe. Good luck.

    [–] When someone says bub looks like me I think of this, every time Trustme_ima_doctor12 1 points ago in beyondthebump

    My second son is his fathers twin. No one in my family really looks that much alike so seeing the similarities between them is baffling to me. It’s like I wasn’t even involved.

    [–] Update to husband cheated Trustme_ima_doctor12 35 points ago in JustNoSO

    You’re brilliant. Super impressed with how level headed you seem. Good luck.

    [–] Baby Steps Saturday - Post your accomplishments for this past week Trustme_ima_doctor12 3 points ago in fitpregnancy

    I finally got back on my peloton after taking most of the past three months off. Two days in a row. Woo!

    [–] Slappy Christmas tries a different route Trustme_ima_doctor12 59 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    It was one of her earliest posts. He stopped by to “talk” and left 10 when she wouldn’t just forgive and forget him cheating on him and abandoning the family.

    [–] Am I a bad parent/SO for this? Trustme_ima_doctor12 12 points ago in JustNoSO

    My husband is a SAHD. When I’m home I help with the kids and the house. I feed them, bathe them, dress them, etc. I help cook dinner (if I’m home for dinner) , do dishes and just in general pick up around the house. I also pay for a maid once a week, a gardener once a week, and the kids go to a private school during the day.

    I still get exhausted taking care of them by myself when he goes out of town because raising children is fucking hard! So no, you did nothing wrong by having a break. He still needs to parent the child not just earn a paycheck.
