DEPENDS: This really is very personal and individual choice. Has a lot to do with expectations etc. For instance having children and the biological clock.

Can a 7-8 week vaginal ultrasound be a month off with dating the gestational age/due date?

Can a 7-8 week vaginal ultrasound be a month off with dating the gestational age/due date?

What are some bad things about dating a guy who had a child with another female?

If you marry this man you would be the step-mother. Step-parents carry much responsibility and little authority when it comes to parenting a step-child. Think hard and make sure you understand your commitment well. ...Read more
