I'm at eight weeks and have been incredibly anxious and borderline depressed pretty much since the moment I found out (it's my first pregnancy). I am planning to start prenatal yoga in a few weeks, so hoping that might help a bit. Mostly I am just scared by how much this is not what I expected being pregnant to feel like.

Oh God, my Italian Greyhound is only five and he already looks pretty old. He has that alopecia that blue greyhounds get, and so much white on his face already. I don't even want to know how he will look once he's actually old!

Yes, the smiley face kit! I now text my partner "FACE!" and he knows he will be getting lucky in the near future.

I am in the exact same boat, except we have been trying less than six months. I recently had to talk to my partner because I was worried that no kids would be a dealbreaker for him. It wasn't, which was great, but the whole "trying" thing is still getting old. I had really worked myself up over the fact that I don't want kids bad enough to put myself through anything too painful or stressful. Finding out my partner didn't want that either was such a relief. I personally don't think it is anything to feel bad about. It's a huge decision! I only want kids because I love my partner and having our own little family is appealing to me. I sure haven't always known it was something I'd want. I don't really have advice, just a whole bunch of support and solidarity.

And there are going to be six sinks? No need for more than one hand dryer!

I love the smell of my Italian Greyhound. When we cuddle I like to put my face right into him and take a deep breath. This habit has apparently transferred and now my partner knows what I am up to when I sniff him all the time.

I think that all dogs can get Wet Dog Smell, so unfortunately there is no getting around that. But some definitely have more smell than others. Between my partner and I we have four dogs and none are particularly smelly. I think you would notice as soon as you met the dog, so at least it would be easy to avoid.

This is the best explanation I've heard for why sometimes a hot bath is just not what I need.

Panic because it's getting late and I haven't decided what to watch on Netflix.
