  1. First post... First time Father

    Hi, My girlfriend is almost 12 weeks. For the most part I'm very excited to be a dad. Besides worrying about finances and just being a good role model. I think it just hasn't fully hit me yet. I hear most people say it didn't hit them until that first sight of their newborn. Is their a way to put it in perspective? Also should I start preparing by purchasing diapers clothes etc? Or is 12 weeks a little to soon. And advise helps. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. Thanks
  2. Cyclophosphamide and infertility

    Hi, I do not have cancer so hope no one minds me posting this here but I felt that someone in this group might have knowledge of chemotherapy regimes in terms of affects on hormone levels and fertility. I have been on cyclophosphamide for an autoimmune condition for some time (at lower doses than for chemo).I've had no periods for about 9 months now and after asking the GP for a blood test, my FSH level was 128.2 and LH 51.8. I am only 23 years old and am devastated as I have always longed to have a family of my own.My question is - does this guarantee I truly have Premature Ovarian Failure as I have read that FSH/LH levels can rise during chemotherapy regimes but that they may return to normal some time after you stop the medication? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. Thanks

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. Thanks
  4. Hi, What are the songs that remind you of your teenage years, like 13 to 16-17? They can be K-pop or western songs. For me, there are many, I could make a full playlist but I will pick a couple of the most known ones. They're a bit all over the place. Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. Thanks

  7. Hi, My wife and I have been searching for information on hospitals in Singapore for pregnancy consultation and delivering a baby. It seems like KK and NUH are good options. Currently our preference goes to NUH as they seem to promote more on natural delivery. We therefore feel that NUH might be more patient and spend more time with you during delivery, instead of KK where things could be busier. This is just our current impression, we can be wrong.Can anyone recommend a good Gynaecologist in NUH? Please help. Thanks!
  8. Hi, I've always wanted blue or maybe purple hair. But damaging my hair has always been a quiet fear of mine. Chalk sounds like a good alternative to bleach. (although, it's more temporary.) So what happens if you chalk without the heat?

  10. Hi, I have a 5 month old baby girl that has bedtime anywhere between 7 and 8 pm. We prep her by giving her warm baths, dimming the lights, massaging her little body with night time lotion and turning on her mobile. After she is ready, i rock her a bit in her room while feeding her a bottle. Once i see that she is dozing off, after about 5 minutes or so, i put her in her crib and she stays there. Here comes the issue we are facing...She will stay asleep till somewhere around 12 (almost always, right on the dot) and she wakes up. So i go in her room and put her pacifier in, that calms her down and she goes back to sleep. Lately though, she has been waking up EVERY SINGLE HOUR OF THE NIGHT. I have kept track of this for the past week, she gets up at 1, 2, 3, 4 5, 6 and by 7 (on the weekends) she doesnt want to go back to bed. Ive tried different things such as feeding her a little bit more to keep her full during the night, extending her bedtime from 8-9, playing with her more to get her tired, going for walks around the neighborhood, and so on. NOTHING WORKS. We have even put her back in her swaddle blanket so that she doesnt roll over? Any idea?
  11. Hi, I have slowly been weaning my toddler (who will be two in July), one nursing session at a time. I'm a little nervous about eliminating her nurse to sleep session because I'm not sure what to do instead. Anyone make this transition with success? Any ideas or suggestions?
  12. Hello, This years marks my wifes 40th birthday so i'm looking to plan a surprise fun bucket listy type trip for her. As we'll be travelling with two young children (3 and 5) i'm trying to find that right balance of interesting and cultural while not being so ambitious it leads to burnout. Our kids are relatively travel savvy having gone with us to Europe, South-East Asia, Japan, China, and Australia. The planned trip is for approx three weeks in March and would like to our bouncing around to maybe max three times. Our last trip was to Bali/Indonesia where the kids got plenty of time at beaches and pools while we still got to visit temples and experience a new culture. Was the right blend, hoping to find something new and different with that same balance. Ideally with good weather in March although could reschedule to summer if the right place would require it. Anybody have any suggestions of places they've been with young kids and particularly loved?
  13. moldy makeup brushes?

    Hello, My white brushes have black little dots over them and ive tried washing them but it doesn't help. I ask my friend and she said they were moldy.... but as I search the web I can't find anything about mold on makeup brushes. I have rarely used them but maybe its because I keep them in a closed tiny makeup bag?
