Here’s How to Prepare For Your First Baby

women infertility

Congratulations to you! if you’re reading this post as first time mom; it’s only natural you’d be excited about the little miracle growing inside you. It’s also not out of the place to feel some form of anxiety concerning the baby’s health, this just shows how much love you already have for your baby and what a great mom you will be. You're excited at this point and you can’t wait to see your mini you but 9 months is a lot shorter than you thinks it is because there are a whole lot of activities that needs to happen for your baby to be birthed safely.

These include;
1. Selecting a healthcare provider – This is probably the most important decision you will ever make for your baby. You will want to get information on the Obstetrician-Gynecologist (OBGYN) close to you. It doesn’t really make sense getting one so far away from your community as it could take some time to get to them in the event of an emergency. Feel free to find out if they are board certified, consider how long they have been practicing for and what their thoughts on the different birthing processes are.

2. Getting your baby, a doctor - While you are shopping for an OBGYN, also look out for a pediatrician for your little one; the best time to do this is usually between the 28th and 34th week of your pregnancy. Again, you need to research potential doctors that are also have their practice is the same community where you reside. You really do not want a long commute to the doctor’s office when your baby is running a fever. Find out what they think about immunizations, breastfeeding, the Ferberization method etc.

3. Becoming acquainted with the birthing process – A lot of moms swear by different birthing techniques; for example, while some moms feel more comfortable giving birth in a hospital environment incase either mom or child where to require immediate medical attention, some mothers prefer to have a water birth at home, surrounded by supportive family and friends. Now is the time to join a birthing class, talk to other moms about their experiences and read literature on pregnancy. This way, you will be able to make the best decision for you and your baby.

4. Eating Well – You are now eating for two, this refers more to the quality of the food as opposed to the quantity of the food even though pregnant women tend to put away much more food easily. On the other hand, you should consider what nutrients you are consuming and how much of them you are consuming. Vitamins are great for pregnant women but proteins and calcium are very vital as well. Talk to your doctor about what meal plan you should be on during your pregnancy.

5. Shopping for baby clothes, toys and consumables – While you’re at it this is the time to pick out a crib for your baby. It is important that you get this task out of the ways as soon as you can because with each day the pregnancy progresses, your energy level drops. Also keep in mind that the Consumer Product Safety Commission prohibits “…the manufacture or sale of traditional drop-side rail cribs”.

This list is by no means exhaustive but ensure you talk to a medical personnel before you embark on any major changes to your routine or diet while pregnant.

The things that you should never forget when flying with your baby

Going on holiday with your baby is great fun. Particularly if you are really looking forward to spending some time together as a family. The only problem that you can face is knowing exactly what to pack and take with you during the flight and during your break.

It can be hard to balance overpacking and ending up being charged, with making sure that you take everything you need. One way that you can make sure is to follow a packing checklist. This will ensure that you think about the things that are going to prove vital to have, as well as those things that you can definitely live without.

Not only this, but you can also make things a whole lot easier by making sure that you source a child friendly airline that is going to be able to offer you comfort as well as ease during your journey.

So, make sure that you pack diapers, a pacifier and a change of clothes, amongst other things, and in no time you will be ready to go and see what adventures you and your little one can find when you hop on a plane!

Online Shopping Perks

After long hours in the office doing various engineering reports I just don’t have the strength to do more than just watch movie, chitchat with my family and browse my favorite online shopping sites. Actually online shopping is not just a fun hobby but a resourceful hobby as well because I get to find plenty of branded and high quality bags, shoes and supplies for my kids at discounted prices. Good thing is you don't have to walk around stores and get tired selecting and buying because you can do it anytime in the comforts of your home or any place you want.

It’s even more fun because even the favorite instruments can be browsed and bought at http://guitarcenter.com/. The site is so helpful for music enthusiasts like my family who wants to dream and save for the completion of our planned music room in which we will fill up with all the musical instruments they’re so fond about. I’m glad to find such a one-stop shop for all the musical items we need. Now it’s even easier to search and find them converted in our own currency. Cool isn’t it?

Aspirations on Technology

I love technology and innovations, the reason why I took up computer engineering when I was in college. Now I can see my flair for the latest technology in my son who is keen on anything that connects to technology. He’s very good in computer codes, very interested in repairing mobile phones and very good in researching for system trouble. As early as now I can visualize what he’s going to take in senior high and in college but that may change also depending on what he’ll be encountering in his junior high. For now he’ll just enjoy his young age and go on his favorite hobbies like games and playing keyboards. He’s always browsing on some musical goodies at epiphone musicians friend and maybe he’ll ask some day for a new musical instrument.

Kids’ Summer Activities on Different Generations

With all the new gadgets and electronic things that kids are playing now it’s really an effort to take them away from it and play the real games offline. I remember those summer days when I and my siblings were excited to end school days because we’re going to have plenty of board games to play. I excel on word games and I read plenty of books so I’ll be good at playing. 

When the sun is hot we play chess, scrabble, word factory, snakes and ladders, millionaire’s game and other related games. On the other hand when it’s not so hot outside we play ball games and other kid games played on streets. Life was indeed simpler then but happy as well. We also love music and I tried playing guitar myself but when I got busy with my college course I was not able to pursue my hobby. 

For my brother who has special gift for music time doesn’t matter because learning and playing musical instruments seem like a nature to him. It flows easily and he learns so fast, since I got more home chores he was able to spend more time. I just focused on collecting musical pieces, song books and music tapes since there’s no CD on those days or IPod. 

When we became born again Christian my brother bought drum set and electric guitar for the church. I remember it so clearly especially when I saw epiphone bass at guitarcenter.com which my daughter love to have for her own. He still has special flair for music and he extends it to our church brethren so everyone who wishes to play can learn from the instruments that he bought. Now after more than three decades he still plays instruments and the gifts of music which started from our grandfather is also seen on his kids and my kids too. They all love playing musical instruments.

Zooey Deschanel Shows Off Baby Bump

Zooey Deschanel is pregnant with baby #2, and now sources are starting to think that her pregnancy has even been written into her “New Girl” script. The 37 year old actress had her first baby, Elsie Otter, back in 2015, and during that time, the show went to huge lengths to hide her pregnant belly. However, that doesn't look like the case this time around. She was recently spotted on set with her baby bump on full display, sparking rumors that this could mean a baby for Jessica Day as well as Zooey! 

The couple never actually “announced” Deschanel's second pregnancy, although rumors have been flying for months, and it's clear to see that Zooey is probably around six months along already. We are super excited to watch her pregnancy progress, and are even more excited to see what Zooey and husband Jason Pechenik (who wed in a secret ceremony around the time their daughter was born) name their second baby. Zooey spilled the beans that they chose the name Elsie Otter for their baby girl because the couple both love the adorable animal. How fun is that?! We can't wait to see what cool and creative names they come up with for this new baby!

Super Deals on Gadgets and Musical Items


With all the super deals that gadget suppliers are offering these days it’s so hard to resist not buying one or two of my favorite gadget accessories but I still stick to saving all my money for my daughter’s debut celebration. If ever I decide to but maybe it’s one of those musical instruments she saw online which are also on sale. She’s craving about additional instruments like percussion kit that she’ll be playing with this coming summer. 

Her school will adopt the new schedule of opening of classes from the old June opening to the new and international-based start of classes on August. As that would be a very long summer she’s thinking of getting a summer job and enhancing her musical skills as well. So now I’m thinking of giving her a nice 18th birthday musical instrument gift. I know it would make her very happy.

New Fashion Trends and Stylish Dresses



It’s the start of the new year and fashion trends are changing. At the start of the year many fashion designers showcased their new designs, styles and colors that will be the latest trends this 2017. Every year we wait for the release of the color of the year and the style of clothing that will be most likely to be seen the whole year round. With this there are plenty of fashion shows and events that showcase the latest clothing for women, men and even for kids that will be inside most catalogues of fashion magazines this year. This is not only on magazines but on websites as well. I’ve come to see some of the nice designs on StyleWe, an online shopping resource site that provides creation of independent fashion designers.

It’s quite a good shopping experience to search through fashionable clothing for women of varied age, size and style preferences. You’ll see wide range of clothing for daily use, work apparel, corporate gear, evening wear, outdoor, sportswear and many other nice outfits for specific occasion needs. They also have skirts, pants, pretty tops that you can mix and match for those simple occasions that you want to look elegant but not overly dressed. I had a glimpse of beautiful all white party dresses in lace, satin and silk and love them even if I’m into blue green or midnight blue lace dresses.


Well shopping is not yet over because there will be holidays, occasions and events that will surely make you feel the urge to shop, dress and be beautiful in all those moments. It’s easier if you do it online so you won’t have to find more time and go to places especially for working women like me who has little time to shop. It’s even more economical at times because you get to compare price at the touch of your fingers like finding this floral romper for my niece who just need a simple getup for their home party. Shopping has never been easier and comfortable with online shops and even more exciting finding shops that provides not just beautiful clothing but accessories as well.

A Comprehensive Guide to Operating a Kiosk Business

 
While it may not be the most conventional approach to business ownership, mall kiosks have risen to new, popular heights for individuals who wish to operate small, profitable businesses without a great deal of overhead. From understanding how to obtain a kiosk to sales, this guide will help entrepreneurs grasp the details of their upcoming endeavor.

Obtaining a Kiosk

Kiosk rentals are typically handled through mall management, and the average cost of the cart and the space in which it is located tends to be about $800 per month. Prices often reflect the location of the kiosk within the mall, the season and volume of business expected. Other business owners will find that the mall in which they wish to work also requires a percentage of their sales revenue during a specified period.

Selling a Product With High Customer Appeal

A large amount of kiosk sales will come from customers who purchase impulsively; in order to ensure that this strategy positively affects an entrepreneur's bottom line, he or she must select items that customers will want at a price that they are willing to pay.

Focusing on a narrow line of products is perfect for those who operate a kiosk; for example, instead of selling sunglasses, watches and earrings, focus on providing a wide amount of variety when it comes to one or two items. The items sold at a kiosk must also be the type of products that the average person would want to own, and because they are often purchased on impulse, should be sold at rates of $30 or less.

Selling a service at a kiosk is another way to appeal to a customer base that functions largely on immediate gratification; for instance, massage therapists can sell their services in 15-minute increments while piercing professionals can both pierce a customer and sell them the aftercare products that they will need; they may also wish to sell jewelry for after the piercing site has healed.

Successful Kiosk Strategies Make Money

Although a typical business plan does not account for kiosks, a few modifications to such a strategy can create a sound future for kiosk owners. While the kiosk may not be a business owner's dream store, working one's way up to the higher rents, insurance and product variety takes time and money; after all, planning is a must for entrepreneurs.
