I'm Jealous Of My Stepson's Mother

Jealousy is ugly on me. I suppose it's ugly on anyone but it feels particularly nasty when I wear it. I would love to do away with it completely as an emotion, but it keeps cropping up again. It's not that I'm jealous of women who are taller, thinner, prettier. I'm not jealous of women with more money or more glamorous lifestyles. I'm jealous of one person and one person only: the mother of my stepson. And maybe not for the reasons you would think.

The 7 Things You Must Know About Birth Control

In this day and age, it seems like every one of my friends is on the birth control pill. However, unlike most girls, most of my friends went on the pill to have sex at the end of high school, and simply stayed on it to enter college. And while most people know the basics of birth control, few people ever bother to read the fine print. So here are some of the most important things that you should know (i.e. all the stuff that’s on that little packet of info you throw out every month):

How To Love Your Hot, Pregnant Self

I have never felt sexier than I do now that I'm pregnant. From watching my belly grow bigger and bigger to the cleavage that I never thought possible. There is a lot of pressure out there for women to stay skinny, and the pregnant body is far from that. But this kind of messaging creates the image that a pregnant body is not a sexy body. I must beg to differ.

Hot Pregnant Sex: Urban Legend?

At seven and a half months pregnant, I am awkward. I am tired. I am gassy. I am not, despite my husband's daily protests to the contrary, sexy. My libido is as MIA as my waistline, and although sometimes I feel like I should throw my husband a bone, I'm at the point where when it's bedtime, I have absolutely nothing left.

Everyone Is Pregnant But Me

It was like the post-WWII baby boom at my publishing company in Manhattan. The ladies' room was full of women patting their stomachs, complaining about morning sickness that lasted all day and chugging Cheerios to battle nausea. I had never seen anything like it at any place I've ever worked.

The Secret To Fertility After 40

When Amy Tucker of Columbia, Ill., gave birth to a healthy baby boy last May, she made headlines. The 32-year-old cancer survivor was no ordinary new mom. Thirteen years ago, when Tucker was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, she knew the cancer treatment would leave her infertile, so she elected to have one of her ovaries frozen for later re-implantation when she was cancer-free and ready to have kids. Freezing ovaries is allowing women to prolong their fertility after 40.

Will Birth Control Gel Replace The Pill?

For women who need birth control, avoiding an unwanted pregnancy may someday come down to applying a little lotion. Researchers claim to have developed a topical contraceptive gel that works by rubbing it onto the arms, legs, shoulders and abdomen once a day. The gel's primary ingredients, estrogen and Nestorene, a synthetic form of progesterone, prevent the ovaries from releasing eggs once a month. Basically, it's like the patch, except that it's invisible and it doesn't come off.

How Drinking Saved Our Marriage

My husband and I once visited all 33 New Jersey wineries registered through the NJ Wine Growers' Association. We did it in three, frenetic months. We spent every single weekend together over the course of those three months, immersed in this shared interest of ours, and it revitalized our marriage. Nowadays, we still enjoy the occasional tasting and, most weeks, we pour each other some wine and cook together. It's a way to keep connected, even though we're still hopeless workaholics. This will all end once I get pregnant.
