Other / Re: What can I do to prepare for an abortion?
« on: January 23, 2019, 01:07:53 PM »
I feel like you need to reconsider your actions. This abortion you are planning to do is something that will kill your baby. Here is my question to you. Do you want to have your own child's blood on your hands?

I think you need to take this opinion elsewhere. Go push your beliefs on someone else, I made myself VERY clear.

I am sorry but I was not pushing my beliefs on you. I was giving my advice like you asked.

You were pushing your beliefs because you believe that a bunch of lifeless cells are already counts as a 'baby' and abortion is 'killing babies'. This is your BELIEF, as actual science notes that surprisingly a bunch of cells is not actually categorized as a formed human baby. (shocker!) So when someone asks how to prepare for an abortion (not whether she should have one!) you should either support the woman going through with such a difficult decision, or you can just sit yourself down and keep quiet. Just because you believe something doesn't make it true. It makes it true for YOU, that's all.

As for the actual topic of this thread, I support you in your decision Flowerbomb and would have made the same one! I had a friend who decided to get an abortion - she was in a loving long term relationship, had a purchased apartment, a dog, seemingly good life... but she wasn't ready. they weren't ready. she wasn't at a place in her life that she was happy with it and herself and so she had an abortion. 3 years later the two of them are engaged, with jobs they both love, a new apartment they adore, and are generally happier. For them this was the right decision, and she knew it. It doesn't mean it would be the right decision for everyone, but it was for them and that is all that matters. I hope you are doing okay!

Uhhh no. A "bunch of 'lifeless' cells" are actually a LIVING CHILD!!!!!!! Have you ever heard he heartbeat of a "lifeless cell"?

This is not the place for a debate over what you believe. That is what you believe, and what I believe is in science, which shows that to a certain point in time it's cells that do not have a heartbeat or are anything but a bunch of cells, and that's the point when it's allowed to get an abortion - after that point usually it is some health problem, or other important reason for having it. Either way, believe what you want but don't shove those beliefs onto other people. If you don't agree with their choices, then walk away.

TTC / Re: TTC buddy
« on: January 22, 2019, 06:11:03 AM »
Hi ladies! Just found this thread, I'm still VERY new. I'd posted a separate thread on this, but now finding this section it seems like the best place to ask! What did you ladies try when TTC? Do you have any natural remedies, or tech products, or apps or anything that made it a bit easier for you, that you know works? I'm currently using this app (Period Diary), as well as a Bellabeat health tracker for women as they have a period section and meditations that help with my anxiety (if anyone has experience with this tracker I would love to hear! I've only had it a week so far...) Basically, I'd love any kind of feedback you guys can share on tips that might make this process a little bit easier. I really hope this is the correct place to ask this, I'm very sorry if its not!!

I use meditations! Calm has good ones, but is subscription based, so I switched to the Bellabeat app. It's free but I use it with my Leaf health tracker. It has I think over 30 different meditations, one is called Deep Sleep and it knocks me right out, hehe.

Health / Do you use any tech gadgets to track your health?
« on: January 22, 2019, 05:26:56 AM »
Hi! I've been trying to get pregnant and that kind of shook me to the fact I've not been living the healthiest. Problem is I'm hard to motivate sometimes, so I think having some gadgets that would push me forward would kind of help. I recently (like a week ago) purchased a Leaf health tracker by Bellabeat. It was recommended by a friend, as it's a female centered company and honestly it was just a really pretty tracker. But since it was such an impulsive buy I never really did much research. Do you have any gadgets (or apps like this!) that help you sort of keep up your health? If you heard/have a Bellabeat, what is your opinion on it?

Pregnancy / Advice on getting pregnant?
« on: January 22, 2019, 04:59:01 AM »
Hi all! I'm trying to get pregnant after a miscarriage a while ago, so it's proving a bit harder. I'm currently using this app, and based on a recommendation from a friend I bought a Bellabeat Leaf health tracker to get info on my ovulation. Has anyone tried this tracker before? I think it's cool so far but I've only had it a week so I'm not sure yet, would love opinions if you had it!
Do you have any suggestions that might have worked for you? It can be products or just natural remedies, I'm open to anything!

Hi all! Do you guys have any suggestions on getting pregnant more easily? I had a miscarriage 2 years ago and we're trying again. I'm currently using this app, as well as a Bellabeat Leaf health tracker to make sure I don't miss ovulation. Does anyone have any other suggestions that worked for you? Or has anyone tried the Leaf health tracker? I got a recommendation from a friend who used it to get pregnant more easily but I'd love to hear more opinions about it!
