Tests, test, and more tests. Some results too!

The journey continues…

Walking into a hospital or doctor’s office has never been pleasant for me. I have never been one who is excited to see my doctor. Not that anything has ever been wrong up until now it’s just I feel that I am conditioned to hate the doctor, dentist, emergency room, etc. Today I felt different. I knew I wasn’t going to get my answers today but it was the first step to motherhood.

Why my miscarriages were more painful than your labor.

Pain of loss

This year has been tough on my husband and I. We have lost two pregnancies. The first loss was at 5 weeks 6 days and the second loss was at 7 weeks 2 days.  We have been planning to have kids for quite a few years now. We both waited for the right time, the right jobs, medical, marriage, etc.  It was the perfect plan to build a family… or so we thought.
 

My First Pregnancy

Your First Baby? Tips And Advice For All Parents.

If you are an expectant parent, remember that it is not necessary to spend obscene amounts of money on furnishing your nursery. You can find many items that you will need to furnish your nursery from cribs, to sheets at department stores for a fraction of the price, without sacrificing quality. Family and friends also serve as a great resource for gently used items.

Even though time with your kids is important, it is also important to make time for yourself. Spending time on your own doing the things that you enjoy allows you to maintain your own sense of individuality.

FINALLY

I just wanted to post a quick note to say that my husband and I have been trying for our second child for two years and it has FINALLY happened. We are so very excited and look forward to being far enough along that we can safely tell our daughter that she gets to be a big sister, something she has been asking to be for a very long time. I've signed up on this website just because I like to see all the news clips and forums of other moms. I find it to be good information and fun reading.

Having a baby makes you realise just how much you should have appreciated sleep before! That’s why it’s so important to ensure that you get the best sleeps before your baby makes an appearance. If you are currently tossing and turning and just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep your nightwear may be to blame. By investing in some good quality maternity nightwear you can be sure you are comfortable when going to bed at night and more likely to feel refreshed upon waking.

Excited and Freaked out

Ok so I have just found out that I am pregnant...yeah!! and woah at the same time. I have 2 kids already 7yrs and 4yrs and it's great. I have been wanting another one for a while but finances and things kept me from making that kind of decision....but now I'm at the point where my husband has a new job and my job is going well so...we were less careful than usual.....and here I am. I am excited because I love the idea that we will have another little person in our lives but on the other hand I'm nervous.

Which kind of crib bumpers are safe?

I just wanted to see if anybody had any thoughts on whether or not to use crib bumpers? I did not like the mesh bumpers and tried a product called Wonder Bumpers. So far they are awesome, has any other new parents tried them? I love the simplicity of the product, they are pads that zip up the crib bars and leave no room for infant injury or suffocation. Just wanted to see if anybody else likes their Wonder Bumpers . . . . . .
