    Maternity clothes on a budget

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Savers. The opinions and text are all mine. I last shared how to save money for spring shopping at the thrift store and had a lot of fun finding outfits at my local Value Village. This time I want to share how I’m saving money on maternity clothes! Being pregnant in the summer is a bit easier in that I can buy simple pieces like flowy tops and dresses, however since I will be in my third trimester during the summer, I really don’t want to spend a lot of money on clothes I might not wear again.

    The Horrifying History Of The Pregnancy Test In A Nutshell In the years prior to the ubiquitous plastic sticks we use today, pregnancy was determined by injecting a woman’s urine into mice and rabbits, which were then dissected to see the results. Frogs were used later: They would go into ovulation within hours if the result was positive. The frog test was the world standard until the 1970s. The Whole Bushel Today’s pregnancy tests are mostly foolproof and incredibly accurate, but those administered in olden times were far more dubious. The link between urine and pregnancy was understood as long ago as ancient Egyptian times; they would pour the woman’s…

    My Ectopic Pregnancy Story

    A Woeful Wednesday: Ectopic pregnancy awareness There are so many things that have crossed my mind during these past  few months. But there are no answers that I can find anywhere to really help put my mind at ease. I guess it doesn’t help that I am a chronic overthinker and google research expert. The back story Paul and I decided we wanted to start trying for another baby in February. I was very on the fence about a second as Eve was such a challenging baby in terms of sleeping. But now that she’s older and things have become so much easier, I have started to crave another baby…

    First Choice Pregnancy Test Review

    Spread the love For many couples, the time of testing for pregnancy can be a nerve-wracking one. It doesn’t matter whether the pregnancy was planned or not. The nervousness among the women and men are the same as they are about to have a lifetime experience. When do you become pregnant? We usually suspect about being pregnant only when we are late. How do you come to know about the pregnancy? Being late for the period does not necessarily means that you are on the family way. So, now comes the time when you have to test it.  You are eager, anxious to know what’s cooking in the bun. However,…

    Ectopic Pregnancy: What Is It? Know The Signs…

    Maternity Clothes, Japas , & Nurseries

    “Our baby is an acrobatic alien”, I said to the boy after my second trim ultrasound. Well it was kinda true- as much as the nice ultrasound man kept showing me arms, legs and the like I could not for the life of me figure out what was what . I could see a cute alien-looking face and the fact that his  legs were folded in and over his head (Like hello- future yoga master ?) but the rest I just nodded and pretended to know what he was saying. Anyway, Im 19 weeks along and kicking off the bump diaries with a few changes in my life… Stuff doesn’t…
