I mean, bless your mom, but as a CSA-loving hippie leaning knocked up (33 weeks, DEAR GOD) lady who went through this once already almost 5 years ago (AGAIN DEAR GOD), this?

"mung beans and rice, a staple of ayurvedic medicine that practitioners believe helps balance heating and cooling energies. It’s a complete protein, easily digestible, and contains large amounts of, turmeric, garlic, and ginger, all of which are supposed to be quite good at soothing the baby-ravaged beast It also is incredibly gingery and delicious, and tastes great slathered with cilantro whole milk yogurt."

is my worst nightmare. Well-meaning, lovely sweet gesture of a nightmare but .... oh dear god NopeNopeNopeNope. Many many women have food and taste issues during and after pregnancy, they don't always go away after giving birth. So I guess, know your audience? This is just, og, it makes my gorge rise.

my suggestion is simple dishes that are easily freezable and pre-doled into 2-3 (or more, depending on # of family members) serving portions. Mini lasagnas (make in those half size tin foil pans, or in loaf pans), veg or meat. Quiches. White bean, tomato, and greens stew over rice frozen in individual packets/containers. Also you can put together nursing mom lunchable-style snack-meals: kits of cheese and good crackers or wasa bread, dips, cut veggies, etc., easy to eat with one hand whilst nursing.

@katiechasm

I agree! Also, kale chips are not a classic, unless by "classic" we mean something that's been around for more than 6 months. There are plenty of other positive words to describe them, but "classic" is not one of them, unless words have no meanings!

Real or fake, I've decided to visualize this scenario as a Tim & Eric sketch.

@Pound of Salt The "confided in a few friends" bit makes it sound suuuuuuuuper fake. "Hey bro? I watched another dude bang my wife and he was like SUPER good at it, way better than me, what do you think?" Really?

Sounds like a short story by Roald Dahl. Inspired. Or you know, the opposite of inspired.

I just assumed they smothered her. "Choking his wife slowly and luxuriantly did make me feel better."

@Bebe Ugh, I haaaaaaaate the jumping models! I am so sick of it; it distracts me from even being able to comprehend what they're wearing because my eyes roll SO far back in my head.

1) Here's some advice for A Lady: It's befriend. Outside the Facebook alternaverse, there is no such verb as "friend."

2) The fact that LW1 thinks 5,000 horny post-adolescents constitutes the "melee of a large university" tells me everything I need to know about the size of the soft, warm cocoon she is emerging from. If not getting laid is the worst thing that happens to her in the next couple of years she'll be lucky. Enjoy finding out there are consequences and repercussions to your actions, sexual or otherwise!

3) LW2: "I swear if it weren't for [his kids], he'd be the perfect match for me." Oy yoy yoy, thinking like that is bad for him and his kids but worse for you. It's bad enough to go through life wishing away things you can't change, but trying to wish away two innocent toddlers is eventually going to make you hate yourself.
