  • Can my husbands post 9/11 GI Bill be transferred?

    My husband is being medically discharged for an injury and we are wondering if it is possible for him to transfer his gi bill to me or our daughter? He has not received his orders or ets date yet. He's done all of his apt's, just waiting on the paperwork to process. Do we have time? And is it even possible?

  • Why do our boxers fart so much?

    It doesn't matter what type of dog food we feed our dogs, they always seem to have the worst gas. The brand that seems to keep it at minimum is Purina, and the worst is Science Diet. SD makes it smell SO bad.. At least with the Purina it doesn't stink too much. Any tips also on how to minimize it?

  • Is my baby constipated and what should we do?

    Our baby is 3 weeks old. We've switched to formula from breast milk because my supply just wasn't enough. I have been pumping and nursing since she was born because of jaundice but shes eating so much now that my breastmilk just wasn't cutting it. So we transferred over to formula, mixed/fed both for awhile and now the last 2 days have only been formula. She has not pooped once today. Before, it was at least 8 times a day. Also she is not fussy and doesn't seem to be hurting but she is passing gas a lot, just no pooping. I know that breastmilk is the best, etc... but this is the choice we have made.

  • Whats going on with my pregnancy?

    I had been having moderate contractions since Wednesday night but now (Sunday) they have pretty much stopped. They were regular every 2-5 minutes, even went to labor and delivery twice and both times was told I was starting labor but was sent home until either my water broke or the contractions got more painful. On Thursday I was dilated to 3cm and 50% effaced, but haven't been back since to be checked. I have lost my mucus plug. The baby has also dropped very low and even right now Im having cramping like pains in my pelvic area. So what do you think is going on? I am also 38 weeks along.

  • Am I looking at actual labor soon or what?

    I am 38 weeks along. On Wednesday around 8pm I started getting mild pains/tightening from my back to my belly, every 5-7 minutes and lasting maybe 40 seconds total. Usually if I get up and do something different they go away (false/braxton hicks). These did not. They weren't painful, just felt like annoying menstrual cramps. Went to the hospital around 12am and still contracting, I ended up at 2cm and 50% effaced. She had to shove her whole finger up inside to feel the cervix. Was told to go home and come back if they started coming every 2-3 min and more pain, or if my water broke. Ended up going back in around 1pm and contractions were stronger, but started going irregular. Had went up to 3cm and still 50% effaced and when she inserted her finger to check me she only had to go in to her middle knuckle, she said the baby was VERY low. Since yesterday they had tampered off a bit, but now they are pretty darn strong. Its mostly hurting on my left back/side, around to my whole belly plus the tightening. Have had my bloody show, and its harder for me to pee (takes longer for it to come out). Do you think Im getting any closer?

  • Which Army MOS's do you not need a security clearance for?

    My husband has lost his clearance and has to reclass. Of course things are going very slow so we are trying to see which MOS's do not require a security clearance that he may be able to reclass to.

  • How long after becoming pregnant can you get a positive home pregnancy test?

    I know its a few days after your missed periods but my periods haven't been on a normal monthly cycle since getting off of birth control. I also was not ovulating on a normal cycle either. So as soon as the egg and sperm meet, how long after that until you can get a positive home test? Not a faint positive, but a turns 2 lines in a matter of 5 seconds positive? :) Thanks!

  • What causes my '75 Yamaha 650 to backfire on deceleration?

    I have recently rebuilt this bike and had the carburetors completely redone. It's got duel exhaust coming from both cylinders, with straight pipes with no baffles. Ever since it's been running (a few months now) it backfires when I slow down only, never when I speed up and does it in any gear. Keep in mind, this bike has 2 individual carburetors and since Ive been riding it, it appears to be coming out of the left side only. What is causing this and what can I do to fix it? Thanks!

  • When was the date of my child's conception?

    My last period was around November 9th (give or take a few days) that lasted 4 days. Did not get my period at all around Dec 9th, so I tested and it was negative. Started cramping around the 18th along with sore boobs, tested again and was negative. Tested again on the 22nd and it was positive within 5 seconds of taking it.

    When I went in for my first ultrasound, thought I was 12 weeks along and my due date was August 24th. After that ultrasound they changed it to Sept 1st, setting me back 2 weeks. So, when did I conceive? I've tried the online calculator things and some give me different dates. Also, do they count from the day the sperm met the egg or when it implants? I'm 29 weeks along today and still just as confused as before!

    Thanks!

  • How do you show the news feed posts on Facebook?

    On my news feed, I chose "HIDE" on the farmville posts so they wouldn't overcrowd everything else. How do I get them to show up and undo the hide function? I cannot figure it out for the life of me.

  • How do I go about applying at an animal vet clinic?

    I'm 25 and I've always wanted to work at a Veterinary Clinic. I've mostly done office work, and have never tried to do the clinic thing so I have NO experience working at a vet clinic. But, not to say I am not experienced with animals. I've fostered pets from local shelters including cats and dogs, and I've owned dogs, cats, reptiles, hamsters, birds, mice, rats, etc... Anything you could really think of, I have major experience in. We are fairly new to the area (army wife) and I would really like to try to get on somewhere here. Could you please let me know what I should do as far as applying, resume, experience with all the different animals, getting on... Im scared they are going to take one look at my resume and say NO experience LOL Thanks!

  • What is the white, creamy, weird discharge that you get when you are pregnant?

    Im almost 16 weeks pregnant and having discharge which Ive been told is normal, but what is it from and why does it come and go? I get really bad ligament pains when I sneeze and it seems to always be worse after I get those. Sometimes it gets to the point where I need to wear panty liners.
