I thought that I would have a girl and I wanted one, but it never even crossed my mind to “try for” a specific gender. There are several ways that parents go about it who have their hearts set on one sex or the other. More
Topic: getting pregnant
My circle of friends made it pretty clear that most of the third kids out there were unplanned. Sorry, but it’s true. I think the same could be said for my youngest brother, although we’ve learned to love him. (Kidding! Love you, bro!) More
“We need to balance the optimistic scenarios of later childbearing with the heartbreaking ones so that people are more aware of and prepared for the possible outcomes.” More
A study funded by First Response and conducted by the Yale School of Medicine found that many women are seriously, seriously ignorant about the workings of their own bodies. These results are staggering. More
I think, unequivocally, that harvesting sperm from an incapacitated man is a serious infringement on his reproductive rights. More
Vasectomy failure is the stuff nightmares are made of. While it’s highly unlikely to happen, there’s a slim chance I could end up with an unplanned baby after smugly assuming the baby factory is closed forever. Anytime you bring up the topic of vasectomy, there’s always someone who knows someone who knows someone that had baby #3 or #4 after their husband got snipped. More
Every single family function has become an opportunity for someone to look me up and down and ask â€śSo, how old are you these days?â€ť When I answer, I watch them mentally compute how many more childbearing years I have left. More
Kendra’s Twitter selfie got me thinking: How early is too early to share that you’re pregnant, especially if you’re a celebrity? More
Don’t get me wrong, I love IKEA for many reasons, the children’s furniture holds up really well, they always have great basic items like candles and picture frames, the meatballs.. but this seems like the sort of promotion that would just be a happy accident, and not anything people will actually do. On purpose. To get a free $99 crib.

It’s an interesting premise, that in the years to come women will no longer have to worry about their biological clocks and can focus on their careers during their prime working years before starting on a family, but part of me has this romanticized version of conception that involves old school R&B recordings and some nice wine beforehand.

Less than a day after I bring you the exciting news that Mila Kunis could be pregnant with Ashton Kutcher Jr., Iâ€™m forced to retract my statement. Her rep says that sheâ€™s not pregnant, so I suppose that means sheâ€™s not pregnant. More
There are two ways to know you made it in Hollywood. The first is that youâ€™re nominated for a prestigious award, like an Oscar or a Nickelodeon Kidâ€™s Choice Award. The second is that people start examining your stomach for any sign of bloating. If your stomach ever looks bigger from one photo to the next, you get put on Baby Bump Watch. More
Newly-anointed Mitt Romney running-mate Paul Ryan has made his name as a fiscal conservative with a strong vision for Medicare and Social Security. But heâ€™s no slouch in hardcore conservative social ideology, eitherâ€“as folks have been quick to point out. That his social agenda is highly at odds with his Hayek-and-Rand-tinted small government outlook for money matters seems to surprise some people, but .. eh.
