5 Must Have Products That Make Pregnancy More Comfortable

5 Must Have Products That Make Pregnancy More Comfortable.

As I’m now well into my third trimester I have noticed that I am becoming more and more uncomfortable. Sitting, standing, driving and sleeping all have their downsides. I don’t remember being this uncomfortable when I was pregnant with Morgan, but maybe that’s part of the whole after birth amnesia that people tell you about. Not remembering how much it hurts etc! Although I can assure you I still remember ever second of labor and birth and for some crazy reason I decided to do it all over again. Is it too late to turn back?

If Parker arrives early just like Morgan did then I only have three weeks to go! If he decides to cook until he’s full term I have 6 more weeks of discomfort. I don’t know which option I’m hoping for more, longer pregnancy or shorter discomfort?

I knew that in order to make these last few weeks the best that they can be that I would need to turn to my trusted friend Amazon for some ideas. Needless to say I went a little order happy but the items I found have really made a huge difference! I’m hoping that if you are pregnant (any trimester) that these products will work as well for you as they have been for me. Here they are:

3 Of The Best Baby Products For Your Second Baby

3 Of The Best Baby Products For Your Second Baby

When I had Morgan almost two years ago the amount of stuff that we needed seemed overwhelming. However now that I am almost due with Parker, I was struggling to think of what we could possibly need. It’s funny how with the second baby you realize that most of the gizmos and fancy baby items are not at all useful. For example, why did we need a wipes warmer. I still can’t figure that one out. I used it just a few times and then realized it was more of a hassle then it was worth. In fact it never really kept the wipes that warm and instead was just another power sucker!

In today’s post I am going to share with you 3 Of The Best Products For Your Second Baby. These are the items that I will most definitely be using with my new little bundle of joy.

How To Explain The Significance Of Labor Day To Your Toddler

How To Explain The Significance Of Labor Day To Your Toddler

In the middle of March I wrote a super successful post about the history and origin of St. Patrick’s day. I wanted to research it because honestly I didn’t know anything about it. Yet I was dressing Morgan in green head to toe! That post ended up launching a series of posts after I received multiple comments to create a post for each holiday. I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway. What a better way than to actually learn the facts behind them. You can read all of the past posts below:

  1. St. Patrick’s Day
  2. Easter
  3. Mother’s Day
  4. Memorial Day
  5. Father’s Day
  6. Fourth of July

I learned so much from doing these posts, and I found that I really enjoyed researching and writing them. Today I will be sharing with you How To Explain The Significance Of Labor Day To Your Toddler. It’s such an interesting and dubious part of American History that we should all learn about. Here are the top 5 things that I have learned about the significance of Labor Day that I will use to explain it to my little Morgan. Thank you so much to my wonderful friend Google. As always Google was able to steer me in so many fascinating directions while researching this history. I had no idea that the pioneers of Labor Day were so committed to making the experience of being an American worker a safe, secure and protected one.

5 Surprisingly Inexpensive “GREEN” Party Necessities

5 Surprisingly Inexpensive GREEN Party Necessities

I love planning parties! In fact my sister and I have turned it into a sport! We just love the decorations, the themes and the unexpected accessories. Lately however I have been much more conscious of what certain party planning necessities do to the environment. I’m talking about all the plastic goods. There is so much waste! Plastic plates, utensils, bottles, platters, serving spoons etc! It’s shocking how much thrash can come from a simple party. I have become determined to throw parties without the excessive waste.

This past weekend Austin and I celebrated our baby shower for our soon to be baby boy. We are so very excited about our family expanding. And as always I was so very excited to put on a great event! With the waste issue at the forefront of my mind, I set out to find products that were environmentally friendly. I was actually quite surprised that the green products I was replacing all the plastic goods with were much cheaper. Cheap and good for the environment, I’m sold.

The Stay At Home Mom Experiment, The Aftermath

The Stay At Home Mom Experiment The Aftermath

If you have been following along with my posts you will know that last week was my first run in with being a Stay At Home Mom. Catch up on last weeks post here: Welcome To The Stay At Home Mom Experiment Behind the Scenes. For a full week my 19 month old baby Morgan was on summer vacation. When she was 6 months old she started attending day care full time, and since then besides the occasional holiday I have not had the chance to stay home with her on a long term basis. This was a experiment for the both of us.

I absolutely love my career, but I have considered being a stay at home mom a few times since Morgan was born. That feeling increased even more when I became pregnant with my second. I am currently 6 months along. However living in Los Angeles that is virtually an impossible task unless a lottery win is in my future.

I knew that this week would not give me the perspective that real stay at home mom’s have since it was only for a week and I knew that I would return to my lovely corporate job very soon. However it did give me perspective into how hard, amazing, stressful and rewarding the task of being a stay at home mom really is.

I made sure that at the end of each day I reflected on the good and the bad that I experienced. Here is my break down, Monday – Friday, day by day! The Stay At Home Mom Experiment – The Aftermath.

Welcome To The Stay At Home Mom Experiment. Behind The Scenes.

The Stay At Home Mom Experiment

This week is a very unique one indeed. My 19 month old has a week off of day care for Summer Vacation. What this really means is that mommy has a huge challenge in front of her. I am entering into an unfamiliar world. A world of being a stay at home mom. Although my journey will only last a week, I anticipate it will be a rough one with multiple challenges ahead of me. However, I also very optimistic. Probably a little too optimistic at this point. I have grand plans of activities, potty training, bonding and having tons of fun. Welcome To The Stay At Home Mom Experiment. Behind The Scenes.
