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. Because having a newborn is stressful enough without having to put together a baby crib that will just come with some weird drawings, no written instructions, an Allen wrench, and probably a missing screw.

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., Iâm forced to retract my statement. Her rep says that sheâs not pregnant, so I suppose that means sheâs not pregnant. 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 heâs no slouch in hardcore conservative social ideology, eitherâas 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. Thatâs just the rhetoric of the Republican party in the 21st century: Hands out of my health care and onto your uterus. What was anyone expecting?
You thought it was bad enough that E.L. James makes approximately $1 million a week from sales of her erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, right? Like, that was as awful as this tale was going to get. But now a culture expert is giving James credit for something much larger: He says that weâll be seeing a baby boom inspired solely by people getting nasty thanks to Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Having a child is usually a happy time in a womanâs life. Unfortunately, as we wait longer to have children, infertility and trouble conceiving can become a part of the family making process. Unbearable addresses these difficulties.
Having a child is expensive. Without any fertility treatments or adoption lawyers, no matter how you get pregnant, children cost a whole lot of money.

So imagine that you went the Boy Scout route and you were prepared for anything! You already had plans to turn that guest room into a nursery. You’ve looked into your company’s maternity and paternity leave policies. You even secretly bought a baby name book that you hide under your bed. You’re all ready, but it’s taking a while to get pregnant. You’re prepared for anything, but nothing is happening. Most couples trying to conceive are familiar with this phase in the process.
