Remember to always check with your doctor before starting an exercise program during pregnancy. When doing exercise ball workouts use caution...your center of gravity is not the same and it is possible to fall of the ball and injure yourself.

1. Organize your home before the baby arrives. You won’t believe how much clutter a newborn can bring to a house! It all begins with that first baby. Get a head start by carefully planning and organizing ahead of time. Here are some ideas:
- Put a basket in every main room for toys. It’s a cinch to pick up all the toys and toss them into the basket at the end of the day, and your child can learn to do this independently at a very young age.
- A well organized changing table: we use my parents old vanity.
- Designate a place in the kitchen for bibs, baby bottles, baby dishes & utensils, etc. or they will take over your counters and drawers.
- Organize baby clothes in boxes by gender, season & size in a storage area. You’ll be going through baby clothes every two or three months.
- Make sure laundry is cleaned, folded, and put away.
- Put batteries in toys and baby equipment is put together. With a newbie in the house you will not have a time or the energy to that care of these things. It also gives you the opportunity to focus on yourself and enjoy your new baby!
2. Use a Backpack diaper bag. Forget the standard diaper bag. We parents need use of both our hands as much as possible. An ideal one would have two halves: one for the diaper bag, one for your purse items. Keep your purse and diaper bag items simple and organized (use Ziploc baggies if you need to), and you’ll be set! A couple rules of thumb: always have one more diaper than you think you need; always have one change of clothes until the child is beyond potty-training; have a plastic bag to put soiled clothes in; and make sure you have a back-up binky or burp cloth or whatever your baby gets attached to, if applicable.
3. Freeze meals ahead of time. This is a great tip for those that do not have family members living close by and you can’t always depend on people coming over with several meals. All you have to do is freeze half of your dinner every night about a month or two before the baby arrives. Doing this will save you time, money, and energy in the long run. By the time the baby arrives, you will have about 3 weeks of dinners prepared!
4. When friends and family members offer to help…take it! Whether it’s to pick up items at the store, watch the baby so you can catch up on much needed rest, or assist with household chores.
5. Find a way to get your sleep. Don’t feel bad about turning people away. When we had our daughter my husband and I limited our visitors to one a day, turned off our phones, and put a note on our front door. Since our friends and family were anxious to see the new baby, this was the only way we could get some quiet and alone time. Just remember you need to take care of yourself!
RELAX AND ENJOY! This stage will be over before you know it, and babies are so precious. Enjoy this time fully. I hope these tips encourage and enable you to be a successful, joyful parent. They should also give you an idea of what’s ahead. Good luck and happy parenting to you!

After several sleepless nights I went on to search for my own holistic remedy. One drug-free method I found are Breathe Right strips. I've worn them at night and even though it doesn't clear the nose, it makes breathing easier by slightly opening up the nasal passages. Some other methods I found include:
- Saline Nasal Spray.
- Boil water than place a towel over your head and lean over the bowl of water for 20 minutes.
- Rub your tongue on the roof of your mouth and rub between your eyebrows at the same time. Yes this one seems strange, but when you are desperate you'll try anything!
If anyone has tried other holistic methods and they have worked, leave a comment to let me know. I would like to try it!

- Talk To Your Children About Money. Money really needs to be an open and ongoing topic with your children. Opening up the dialog, gives them the opportunity to ask questions and learn about smart financial guidelines.
- Get Financially Fit. Get a piggy bank and create opportunities in which your children can "work" for money. Such as payments for tasks outside the household routine.
- Practice What You Preach. The financial decisions you make will have an impact on your children. If you are responsible with your finances than your children will model it.
- Create A Common Goal. Get your kids involved in the family financial planning early by creating a family fund that will be put toward a goal everyone agrees on. That could be a vacation, a gift, or a charity that all the family members would like to support.
- Know Why Money Matters. Finding a balance between your family's finances and your family life. The finances should support the family life, not control it.

I bought and used this journal for my first pregnancy and it was a great tool to help make all the details of my pregnancy more manageable. There is a week-by-week tracker that notes the age and the length of the embryo. Here you can also make notes on how you are feeling, any movement and sensations you are experiencing, and things to do that week. I really enjoying going back and reading about my pregnancy!
There are also to-do lists; suggested questions to ask when looking for health care provider, locating childcare options, and touring a birthing facility. This journal is a great way to have all your pregnancy related information in one place!

Here are some tips to being a smart consignment shopper:
- Know your price range before shopping. Consignment shops differ in price ranges, so know your budget before picking a store. If you are looking to spend $10 to $20, you should look at going to a lower-end resale store. For high-end designers, only go to high-end consignment shops.
- Don't be in a rush and if can make the trip without the kids, do it. Consignment stores have so much at great discounts; you have got to take your time looking. I search through the racks for the really good bargains that have been marked down.
- Check the stores return policy. Each store has their own return policy and you need to know if they accept returns, give store credit, and how long you have to bring back an item.
- Only buy items in like-new condition. You should only shop at stores that sell excellent condition items, and always review the condition of the item before purchasing it. Never accept items that have holes, stains or are tarnished in any way.
- Sign up on their guest book, personal shopper lists, or e-mail lists. It’s a great way to request items you are looking for and they will call you when the item comes in. You will also receive newsletter updates on sales and upcoming events.
- Make friends with the sales people. New items come in daily, and often times items don't even make it onto the rack, so stop into the store once a week.
Consignment stores are also a great way to make some extra money on clothing, toys, or items that are no longer used. Most Consignment stores will give you 40% of the price of each item sold, in cash, or 50% of the price of the items sold, in store credit.
Here are some tips to Consigning your own stuff:
- Make sure your clothes are clean and neatly folded. The better your clothes look, the quicker they will sell, and the quicker you will get money. Try fabric softener-your clothes will smell great.
- Equipment sells better with instructions and current price info.
- Equipment and accessories also must be cleaned.
- Bring your stuff in early in the season. The earlier you bring them in, the higher it can be priced and the more money you will make. Some stores reduce the sale price 25% after being on the rack for a month.
- Save yourself the trip and call ahead to make sure they are accepting the items you’re looking to consign.
Like I said I love great deals! And fact that I can take some of my daughter’s items in to consign and exchange for what she needs is a great money saving technique that I will utilize for several years. To locate a store near you either check your local phone book or go to http://www.resaleshopping.com/.

Though you may not feel like running a marathon, many women benefit from exercising during their pregnancies. Early in the pregnancy, you should talk with your doctor or health advisor about starting/continuing an exercise routine. The amount of exercise recommended depends largely on your pre-pregnancy condition and be prepared to make adjustments to your routine throughout the pregnancy.
Exercise not only benefits you, but also the baby. A weekly exercise routine can help you feel better by toning muscles, reduce back aches, reduce constipation, and help you sleep better at night by reducing stress. Exercising not only helps you return to your pre-pregnancy weight, but also prepares your body for birth. Strong muscles and a good heart have been proven to greatly ease pain and delivery (so they say). And just in case you have a lengthy labor, good endurance will help. Studies have also shown that exercise reduces complications like preeclamsia and gestational diabetes.
Now I’m not saying that if you exercise you definitely won’t experience any of these challenges. I exercised prior, throughout, and post pregnancy and still struggle with high blood pressure. We can’t change our genetics, but we can help to minimize complications and challenges that may come our way.
Since I was labeled as being in good health condition, my doctor gave me the go ahead to continue my normal exercise routine. I recommend that if you don’t have any restrictions from your health advisor continue your routine, but listen to your body.
Suggestions for following an exercise routine:
- If you are tired or it hurts…stop. Give yourself a break…you are pregnant!
- At the gym, lower the weight if you have any pain or anything feels uncomfortable.
- Wear a belly band for extra back support…it worked wonders for me!
- If you experience dizziness, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, or pain in your back or pelvis than stop.
- Avoid activities that require bouncing, jarring, leaping, or sudden change of direction.
- Just keep moving…every little bit counts!
My well rounded exercise routine during pregnancy:
- Went to the gym 3 times a week.
- Always used a cardio machine, but instead of 20 minutes I did either 10 or 15 minutes. If you have high blood pressure, make sure that your heart rate doesn't go above 140.
- Weights for upper and lower body. As I advanced through my pregnancy I decreased the weight to make it more comfortable. I discontinued my abdominal workout around 5 ½ months because it was uncomfortable. It is also recommended that at 5 months not do anything that requires you to be flat on your back.
- Stopped mountain biking around 6 months because it was uncomfortable.
- I walked almost everyday…it’s so easy to do this!
- I returned to the gym about 2 months post-partum with the same routine I was doing when I left and built it back up.
- Almost immediately after having the baby you can start walking and doing Kegal exercises. I also bought an exercise ball for the days I couldn’t make it to the gym…at least I still got a little workout at home.
Warnings signs to check with your doctor:
- Vaginal bleeding
- Unusual pain
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Unusual shortness of breath
- Racing heartbeat or chest pain
- Fluid leaking from your vagina
- Uterine contractions
Wondering how to get started here are some ideas:
- Start gradually. Even 5 minutes a day is a good start if you've been inactive. Add 5 minutes each week until you reach 30 minutes.
- Dress comfortably in loose-fitting clothes and wear a supportive bra.
- Drink plenty of water to avoid overheating and dehydration.
- Skip your exercises if you're sick.
- Go for a walk in an air-conditioned mall on hot, humid days.
- Remember to listen to your body and have fun!

Here Are Foods To Avoid
Unpasteurized Products :
- Raw Milk
- Soft cheeses : feta goat cheese, brie, camemberts
- Mexican-style cheeses : queso blanco and queso fresco
- Unpasteurized juice
Raw Eggs :
- Raw eggs
- Caesar dressing
- Egg nog (unpasteurized)
- Hollandaise sauce
- Cookie batter
- Homemade ice cream
- Deli meat
- Raw seafood, especially shellfish
- Undercooked chicken or meat
Following is a link to a chart that shows which fish are safe during pregnancy and which ones to stay away from. www.pregnancy-info.net/foods_to_avoid.html
Other things that pregnant women must avoid that effect the development of the fetus:
- Alcohol or Drugs
- OTC or over the counter medicines
- Consumption of a lot of hot or spicy food items
- Limit caffeine
- Some vitamin supplements
- Jacuzzi’s, Sauna or sun bathing, as it has been found that women with over heated bodes tend to deliver baby’s with neural defects.
There several evidences that indicates exercise is very healthy for expectant women. A weekly exercise routine that incorporates both cardio and weights will help you feel better, assist the laboring process, and help shed the baby weight quicker. I exercised throughout my pregnancy, right up to 2 weeks before I had my daughter and returned to the gym when she was 2 months (check with your health advisor for their suggestions). As my pregnancy progressed I modified my workout. It is important to keep moving, listen to your body, and do what you can...every little bit counts!
All of this information is not only useful for expecting mothers, but also pre and post pregnancy. Nursing mothers need to be extra careful about food consumption because it can seep into the mother's breast milk (I will write about the effects of nursing another time). But of course check with your health advisor if you have any questions or concerns about your pregnancy. Stay healthy and enjoy your pregnancy!!!

- Instead of changing the bed sheets every week, change them every other week. By going to bed clean it will help keep your sheets clean too.
- Reuse bath towels. Instead of putting them in the laundry after every use, change them out every week or so.
- Assign a bath towel color to each family member so they know which one is theirs.
- Throwing a dry towel in with wet clothes helps the load dry faster.
- If your clothes are clean fold them and put them away to wear another time instead of putting them in the laundry.

The second night Alexis was home, she wouldn’t sleep in her bassinet, crying every time we put her down. This was full fledged, red in the face, screaming at the top of her lungs cry. Of course being first time parents we were doubt founded and knew that something was wrong. We tried everything; walking, feeding, changing, and anything we could think of, but nothing worked.
After 6 hours of dealing with this, it was about 3:00 am and we decided to call the pediatrician. We got the BEST advice ever!!! Since I was breast feeding, my milk came in and Alexis was getting used to having food in her stomach. The pressure of the food in her stomach made it VERY uncomfortable for her. The doctor recommended putting her to sleep in her car seat because it takes the pressure off. We were amazed, it worked right away and Alexis slept for 5 hours straight…she was exhausted! We put Alexis to sleep in her car seat for about a week. When she started sleeping in her bassinet, we put a couple books under the mattress to elevate her body. Elevating the baby’s head also helps with gas issues. We elevated Alexis head when she was sleeping in her bassinet and crib. Works really well!!!
My husband and I where very upset that the hospital did not share this information with us prior to leaving. So my goal is to pass this little tidbit of advice for new moms and moms-to-be! Please help me in sharing this wonderful information...I really wish someone shared this with me!

Looking for cost effective ideas? Here are 3 ways to save on much needed alone time with the hubby, especially if family isn’t around to help out!
Go on a date during the day:
Trade with friends:
To prevent engorgement and shock to the child, it is important to gradually eliminate breast-feedings. I took it slowly, fully weaning my daughter within 2 months. It may also be best to postpone weaning during any major development period or any major changes. Keep in mind it that it is possible to eliminate breast-feeding more quickly. This was the speed I chose that was conducive for both my child and myself.
When weaning, eliminate the feeding that is least important to your child, which is usually the mid-day one. Replace the feeding with one complete cup feeding. If the child is older than 12 months, you can use whole milk. Otherwise use formula or expressed breast milk. About once a week or when you or baby is comfortable, drop a breast feeding. The morning and the bedtime nursing are usually the last to go and there is no reason why you can’t continue it if that’s what you and your children want.
Since this is an adjustment to your baby’s schedule, utilizing distraction during weaning may be helpful. Playing with toys, reading a book, or cuddling will assist your child during this transition. Keep in mind, DO NOT sit in the same place you nurse your child, nor use the same words/language. It is amazing how smart babies are. They can associate both the scenery and word usage with nursing. If weaning has not been successful or you have any questions/concerns, call your pediatrician.

What to do with those old winter gloves…Make animal puppets by cutting off the fingers!
If your kids get sick of their toys, divide them into big plastic containers, and each week, bring out a different one. It’s like they are getting new toys!
Summer will be here before we know it. When you are at the beach, make sure to bring baby powder. It’s the best way to get rid of sand!
Align two hangers hooks to form an oval and tape them together. Cut some ribbon and tie around the tiny hooks inside each hanger (this is so your child can put them around their shoulder). Than cut paper or fabric and attach to hanger.
Snip off a piece of hanger right above one corner. Than just slip the ribbon spools onto the hanger, tape back together and it hang wherever you want to.
Pour bubble solution into a nice big baking dish and have a blast!
Tie some ribbon onto the bottom of the hanger and snap the barrettes on the ribbon.

As she grew older, new solids where introduced (very slowly) and we had to find the right balance between solids and liquids. It worked temporarily, but at times would still struggle with severe constipation. After about 3 months and no additional assistance from the pediatrician, I was furious and went on my own hunt…to conquer her constipation.
What I discovered was some babies do not get enough fat in their diet…basically the extra fat moistens their stools. And with my daughter eating all those fruits and veggies she probably wasn’t getting all the fat she needed. The secret is Flax Oil. I gave ½ teaspoon in the morning and within hours she was unplugged. I was amazed at how quickly and effectively it worked. Now I put about 1 teaspoon in her milk or food everyday and she very rarely gets constipated. If I notice her stools hardening than I give her an extra teaspoon in her lunch.
Flax oil is located in the natural section of most grocery stores. You can either buy the seed and grind it yourself or oil. Just watch out…if you give your child too much their stools will get runny. Of course you should check with your child’s pediatrician if you have any additional concerns. But I just really wanted to share how we conquered the struggle with constipation. No one told me about Flax Oil, so I am spreading the word!

Even though my daughter is only 14 months, she loves it when I create a story that's not in one of her books. Here are some guidelines that I tend to follow when I tell her stories.
Start with a fun lead character. Someone that is familiar like your child, a pet, or an animal.
Take the time of day into account. Bedtime stories should be soothing...save the action stories for during the day.
Tailor the tale to your child's interests. Create a story around what you child enjoys. If he is into trucks, have the lead character be a truck driver.
Work in suggestions (great for older children). Ask your child for their input. They'll love it when their ideas come to life!
Vary your tone. Be upset when there is a sad part and speed up to convey action. Add funny sounds to make the story more exciting. Even young babies can distinguish the tone of your.
Choose the perfect ending. If you finish the story with a cliffhanger, your child will anticipate the next story time.
Tarry & Sticky Black Poop. For the first week or so, your baby’s first poop is called meconium. Looks weird, but totally normal.
Mustard/Yellow Poop. Yellow, seedy, and runny common for breastfed babies.
Green Poop. It usually comes from their waste moving quickly through the tract.
Multiple Color And Color-Changing Poop. As long as the colors are listed above there’s nothing to worry about. Baby poop changes colors on a regular basis.
Chalky White Poop. Could indicate that there is no bile from the liver to digest food. Call the doc.
Tarry Black Poop. When NOT the first poop, could mean there is blood in the digestive tract. Call the doc.
Bright Red Blood Poop. Blood has been expressed very close to the anus (i.e. no time to turn black.) Call the doc.

Secrets of the Baby Whisper by Tracy Hogg. This book gave me insight in discovering my child's temperament and how to communicate and understand my baby, treating her the way I would like to be treated. You'll also get helpful tips on setting your baby on a routine within weeks by using E.A.S.Y. This book is a MUST for all new moms!!!
The Vaccine Book by Robert W. Sears, M.D., F.A.A.P.
Being a new mother, the hype surrounding vaccinations scared me (to say the least). But this book was very informative. Instead of giving parents advice, it provides an in-dept look at each vaccine and disease, including, ingredients used, side effects, and the rarity of diseases This book gave me the knowledge and understanding to assist my family in making a good decision for our child. Please, talk to your child’s pediatrician about any concerns you may have.
The Wonder Weeks by Hetty Vanderijt, Ph.D, and Frans Plooij, Ph.D.
When Alexis was about 3 months, I was very discouraged with her behavior. Her sleeping, eating, attitude, and just about everything went on the frits. This book gave me courage and understanding why Alexis was acting the way she was. The Wonder Weeks will take you through the first 14 months and outline the 8 major development periods. Providing charts, calendars, and checklists, this book will teach you how to aid your baby through these fussy periods and track their progress.
Be Prepared by Gary Greenberg and Jeannie Hayden. This is a survival manual for guys entering fatherhood. My husband (and I) have been inspired with the insights, tips, and advice on conquering the first year of our child’s life.
Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Pregnancy by John Adams, M.D. and Marta Justak. This book provides advice and information from conception to post-delivery. I really enjoyed that this book was written by both and OB/GYN and a mother. So you will get both perspectives on a variety of issues.
Louder Than Words by Jenny McCarthy. What this book taught me was you must be your own advocate for your child. Go to whatever length to get the answers you are looking for at whatever cost. If you do have an Autistic child, Jenny does an awesome job taking you through Evan’s journey of Autism and his recovery.
Please feel free to comment and share any books that have inspired you!
