    What To Expect In The First Trimester – The First 12 Weeks

    When you see those two little blue lines appear on the pregnancy test, your mind starts racing, your body goes numb, and you slowly begin to roll through every emotion. How do I know this? Because I’ve been there. I remember when I first found out I was pregnant, I was home on my lunch break with my husband. I was a day late for my expected period, and we just thought, ah what the heck, let’s just take a test for fun and see. Well, to our surprise, the test showed positive, and we were in such disbelief, we took three more tests later that evening, just to be…

    Are You Pregnant? – Early Signs Of Pregnancy Before A Missed Period

      Not sure if you’re pregnant? Before you even miss a period, your body could be giving off subtle warning signs alluding to the fact you may be pregnant. Keep in mind pregnancy and the symptoms of pregnancy vary from woman to woman. For some women early signs begin to surface within the first week of conception, other women may have pregnancies that go unnoticed until weeks after conception. The frequency and intensity of these early signs can also vary from woman to woman, meaning even if you are pregnant you could possibly not experience any of these symptoms, while others may experience all of them. It is also important…

    Tips For Labor And Delivery – 8 Things I Wish I Knew Before Childbirth

    Before I had my daughter, I was a newly expectant mother without a clue. I had horrible fears and dreaded the day I went into labor. This was simply due to the fact that I was uneducated.

In fact, I am a person who finds solace in learning. The more I know and understand something the calmer and more put together I feel.

    Best Camera For Moms – Capture Those Precious Moments

      I am not blessed with the gift of athleticism. In fact, in the peak of my awkwardness, in middle school, my lack of agility was highlighted when I missed the memo of a soccer ball being launched down the field and towards my face, at an incredible rate of speed.

Due to this, I had to resort to exclusively breast pumping in order to feed her breast milk. Once I had switched from breastfeeding to using a breast pump, I noticed my supply had started to dwindle. I really wanted to continue feeding…
