New Motherhood Deserves Pampering from Purity

By Amy Nutt

Having a baby is actually capable of wreaking havoc on your body in a lot of unexpected ways. For example, you may experience some bruises and soreness around the perineum area. Asides from discomfort, some mothers may also become strangely emotional after giving birth. As a result, new motherhood is an act that definitely deserves some pampering after the fact. Are you already pampering yourself after having recently had a baby? If you are not taking care of your body inside and out after having had a baby, now is the time for you to begin doing so. Here are some things that you can do in order to pamper yourself in celebration of new motherhood.

There are a myriad of different ways that you can pamper yourself. If you enjoy baths, then there are a multitude of different products that you can enjoy in the bath including bath beads, bath bombs, salts and scrubs, special soaps and many other goodies that have wonderful scents and healing qualities to them. Choose products that are more than just a pretty scent - Your best bet is products that are rich in materials like milk, honey and oatmeal, as these are nourishing ingredients that will make you feel magical and wonderful while you are enjoying the pretty fragrances.

Try choosing complementary scents and enjoying a number of different products at once. Choose a fruity bath salt concoction such as strawberries or watermelon, and soak up the scent while enjoying a fruity sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs are outstanding for pampering yourself because they feel great on your skin, exfoliate and also make you feel nourished and moisturized after. You can also chose body washes and soaps that have similarly fruity scents. Rather than choosing the same fragrance for everything, mix up different fruits or different floral scents to fill your bathroom with your favorite scents and really enjoy your bath and the ability to pamper yourself.

When you are pampering yourself with pure thoughts in mind - Consider all natural products and all organic products. These are bath products that choose to use completely natural and organic elements rather than relying on chemicals for colors, scents and cleansers. When you use all natural products, the results are typically quite astounding. You will feel more radiant, more nourished and more pampered than ever before, and all it takes to get you there is a few blissfully scented natural products.

Natural bath goodies and organic bath goodies are full of completely natural ingredients like milk and honey, oatmeal, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, tea tree oil, fruit extracts, essential oils, fruit peels, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and other herbs and spices. What sounds more enjoyable in your bath, a natural sugar scrub that is literally made from real sugar and natural ingredients, or a chemical body cleanser full of ingredients that you cannot spell let alone pronounce? As a new mommy, you deserve the very best - So nourish and pamper yourself with natural and organic skin and body care products. - 30525

Understand Proper Nutrition For Pregnancy 101

By Henry Poperfield

There are many things a woman can do to grow a healthy, full-term baby. Eating a healthful, well-balanced diet is the most important of them all. Proper nutrition helps you avoid a premature birth, preeclampsia, eclampsia, or gestational diabetes. Diligence in this will pay off with an easier pregnancy, an easier delivery, and a healthy, happy baby. If you can't afford to follow a good diet, apply for the WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) program, which is available nation-wide. These coupons can be used at all grocery stores and many farmers markets.

What should you eat? It's really pretty simple. Imagine your dinner plate. Divide it in half. One half should be filled with vegetables of assorted colors: green, yellow, red, white. Things like peas, broccoli, green beans, dark, leafy greens, and asparagus are green. Corn, sweet potatoes, and yams are yellow. Bell peppers, tomatoes, and eggplant are red. Cauliflower, mushrooms, and potatoes are white. Technically, some of these things are not vegetables, but for our purposes, this is the category they go in.

The other half of your plate is divided in half again. In one section, you put your protein. This can be chicken, beef, pork, lamb, and other meats, seafood, or vegetarian options such as tofu, cheese, or beans. For the most part, be careful to choose lean cuts of meat, or low-fat versions of cheese.

The final quarter of your plate will be filled with a starch. This can include items from the vegetable category, such as the potatoes and yams, or beans, which are also a protein. Other items are rice, bread, pasta, and other grains. The most important thing - and this is really important - is that you choose whole grains. Your breads should be made with whole grain flour (it will say so on the label), your rice should be brown. Other excellent grains are quinoa (also high in protein), kasha, wheat berries, and whole grain cornmeal. Steel cut oatmeal is practically the best thing you can eat for breakfast.

Every day, be sure to drink a quart of milk or eat milk products, such as cheese or yogurt. Have two eggs every day. Include a serving or two of fruit. Eat small amounts - three meals, and a snack between each meal and before you go to bed. Salt your food to taste, and drink eight glasses of water or other liquid each day. It also helps to know what should not be included in the pregnant woman's diet. This includes the obvious, such as alcohol, to the not-so-obvious, such as caffeine, sugar, and junk food, to the disputed, such as processed food. Do your best to avoid refined foods of any kind. - 30525

Are You Trying For A Girl? Things Do To Increase Your Chances

By Allison Thompson

There are plenty of people around who feel that you don't have the ability to be able to influence what sex your baby will be. But for those couples who would like to have a beautiful baby girl they will try anything to do so. In this article we take a look at some ways for couples who want answers to the question "Are you trying to conceive a girl?"

First off one suggestion is that by following a certain kind of diet is a way of increasing the chances for a couple to conceive a baby girl rather than a baby boy. It is said that by switching their diet a couple is altering the pH in their bodies and this is believed to help contribute towards the sex of the baby.

This particular method needs the couple to start eating foods with high levels of acid in them such as oranges, grapefruit's, lemons and other such foods. It is thought that the higher level of acidity in the woman's body works on killing of the sperm which contains the Y chromosomes in them and so allows that containing the X chromosomes to reach the egg more easily and fertilize it.

With this method as well as eating foods high in acidity it is crucial that they contain high levels of magnesium and calcium as well. Plus for a couple to be able to increase their chances of conceiving a girl rather than a boy they need to avoid foods high in potassium and salt.

Other people will suggest to couples that they use the Shettles Method to help increase their chances of conceiving a girl by ensuring that they time correctly when to make love. As sperm containing X chromosomes is more resilient than that containing the Y chromosomes intercourse between a couples should take place either 2 to 4 days before egg ovulation begins or a few days after ovulation has stopped.

Dr Shettles surmises that time the woman has begun to ovulate all the sperm containing the Y chromosomes will have died off so this means that only sperm containing the X chromosomes will then fertilize the egg. It is crucial however that couples who are attempting to conceive a girl rather than a boy should avoid having intercourse when ovulation takes places. The simple reason being this gives an opportunity to the sperm containing the Y chromosomes to reach the egg to fertilizer it first.

Along with determining when is the best time for a couple to have intercourse in order to increase their chances of having a girl, Dr Shettle has said that a woman's orgasm can in fact play a part on whether a couple have a boy or a girl. It is thought that when a woman orgasms her body produces more alkaline and this actually is beneficial to the X chromosomes so the possibility of the child being a boy rather than a girl is greatly increased.

Above we offer some ways to help those who have been asked the question "Are you trying to conceive a girl?" By reading what has been written a couple may be able to use these and so improve their chances of having that beautiful baby girl they always dreamed of. - 30525

Natural Methods Of How To Conceive A Girl To Get A Daughter

By Samantha Adams

Many couples who have had one child that was a boy will when deciding to have another would like the chance to have a little girl as well. For these couples there are a number of things that they can do which can increase their chances of having a daughter. In this article we offer some tips on how to conceive a girl naturally.

Tip 1 - In order to increase the chances of the man's sperm carrying the female chromosome reaching the eggs released the woman needs to ensure that the level of acidity in her vagina is high. The sperm carrying the male chromosome do not like an environment that has high levels of acid in it and will die of much more quickly providing more opportunities for the female sperm to reach the egg and fertilize it. The best way of increasing acidity levels in the vagina is by using douches or eating lots of acidic food such as fruit.

Tip 2 - Another way in which women can increase the chances of her having a baby girl with her partner is to make changes to her diet such as eating foods that are high in calcium. So ideally she should be consuming more dairy products such as cheese, milk and butter. Plus it is also worth the woman eating foods high in magnesium such as black beans, spinach and other green vegetables. If however you may find eating lots of green vegetables somewhat unappetising then take a supplement of magnesium instead.

Tip 3 - The other way in which a woman has the chance to increase the possibility of her conceiving a baby girl rather than a boy is through reducing her calorie intake. Women who eat less than 2,000 calories a day when trying to have a child will find that they are more likely to have the baby girl they wanted.

If a couple choose to use some of the ideas mentioned above then they really are improving their chances of having the little baby girl they always dreamed of. Not only are these ideas on how to conceive a girl simple to use but are unlikely to cause unwanted side effects in the woman because they are completely natural. - 30525

Oily Skin Care

By Suzi Sorenson

Alot of skin care products offer alternative products depending on your skin type, however, very often there exists little difference between the formulas for combination or oily skin and their dry skin alterntives.

Hormonal shifts that occur as we reach puberty very commonly result in us having an oily skin type at this age. For most of us, the skin usually drys out as we get older, sebum production naturally reaches its peak in our teens and then slowly decreases with age. Good news maybe for anyone suffering with excessively oily skin.Pregnancy and the menopause can trigger hormonal imbalances which sometimes results in an increase in the production of sebum oil, leaving parts of the skin more oily.

Many people have skin that is dry, or normal, in some facial areas, and oily in others, generally the area we refer to as the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin). This skin is referred to as a combination skin type.

Oily and combination skin types are mainly influenced by: Skin care products and cosmetics Hormone levels Pregnancy and brith control pills Heredity Humidity and hot weather

Effective cleansing for Oily Skin Avoid clean creams since they are often too heavy on the skin, instead, try a lightly medicated lotion or a lightly medicated soap. Oil-based products are quite effective in removing excess sebum although it may seem counter-productive to use an oil-based product on what is already oily skin.

Cleanse oily skin carefully with warm water and, mentioned above, avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil since this can cause a reaction known as reactive seborrhoea, where the sebaceous glands produce more oil in response to the loss of natural oils. Avoid alcohol-based products since these again strip too much oil and limit the number of times you wash each day since this can cause reactive seborrhoea. Products that leave oily skin feeling dry can be detrimental to oily skin strangely enough, since it sometimes causes the upper layers of the skin to shrink, restricting oil flow through the pores which can exacerbate pore blockage.

Treatment for oily skin When you are cleansing your face, massage with your fingertips, using an outward and upward motion, taking care not to rub soap into the skin since this can cause clogging. If your skin is also scaly, you may wish to try a deep-cleaning exfoliant every other day. Use a clarifying mask one or two times a week and a light antiseptic night cream from time to time if you wish. The latter should be used sparingly however. Choose a moisturizer for oily skin that is oil-free to help maintain a shine-free complexion.

Before applying makeup, use an antiseptic day cream with active ingredients that diminish sebaceous secretions. Look for benzyl peroxide in the list of active ingredients. Choose cosmetic and oily skin care products specifically designed for oily skin, such as foundation for oily skin. - 30525

Conceiving A Boy - Tips On Using Ovulation Prediction Kits

By Samantha Adams

Today many couples are looking at ways where they can select the gender of the child that they conceive together. In this article we take a look at just one way which they may find useful when they want to know how to conceive a boy. One thing the couple need to know is exactly when the woman is ovulating so that the sperm carrying the male genes is able to fertilize the egg produced first. An ideal way of determining when ovulation has started in the woman is to use a prediction kit.

More than ever today ovulation prediction kits are proving popular with couples who want to know exactly when the woman is ovulating. The big advantage to using an OPK (ovulation prediction kit) is that it will tell them when the woman is going to start ovulating as it is able to detect increased amounts of Luteinizing Hormone being produced in the woman's uterus. Generally this occurs 36 hours before actual egg ovulation happens.

When it comes to predicting when ovulation is about to happen there are two types of kits which can be used, either the test strip or midstream method. Both of these work in the same way but are used in a different way. With the first method (test strip) this will be dipped into a the woman's urine and left there for several seconds. Whilst the second method (midstream) requires the woman to hold the device in the stream of fluid as she urinates. Normally it takes about 5 minutes before a result is provided after the urine has come into contact with the midstream device.

However there are certain things that the couple can do when using ovulation prediction kits which can help them to better recognize when ovulation in the woman is taking place. Below we offer a number tips that they may find useful if they are going to be using an ovulation prediction kit.

Tip 1 - To obtain a better idea of when to use a ovulation prediction test the couple should also use a chart for recording the woman's body's basal temperature. Using this chart will then help them to look back and see when ovulation is taking place normally.

Tip 2 - Even though you may think it isn't worth the effort you need to be testing yourself more than once each day. Instead it is best to test using the ovulation prediction kit twice each day. This way you are increasing your chances of identifying when the increase in Luteinizing Hormone in the uterus is taking place.

Tip 3 - It is vital that each test you carried out is done at the same time each day and it does not necessarily have to be done first thing in the morning. You can do it at any time of the day, just as long as you do it at the same time each day on the days following the first test. Keeping to set times through out each day increases your chances of seeing when more of the Luteinizing Hormone is being produced by the body.

Tip 4 - It is crucial that the ovulation prediction kit should be used until the level of Luteinizing Hormone in the uterus shows a marked difference. As soon as this difference has been identified then in order to increase the chances of the couple being able to conceive a boy they should make love within 36 hours of this event occurring. - 30525

Common Ways To Relieve Nausea.

By Anna Snyder

One of the drawbacks of expecting is good old nausea and vomiting. It is definitely no fun, but unfortunately, only a few of the lucky ones don't get it while they are pregnant. I was not one of the lucky ones.

Nope, I was not lucky at all when it came to nausea and vomiting. Instead, I had it the worst ever! I was sick day and night, throughout my entire pregnancy, up until I delivered. It was not fun at all. But you totally forgot about that part when you hold your precious baby.

This brings on the question whether or not you want to take the medication root or the natural root. I suppose it may depend on if you have just a mild morning sickness, or an all day one like I had. There are many different things that you can do for yourself to help yourself through this time.

Tums are a great thing to chomp on when you are nauseated. Especially the peppermint ones, that it what I ate like candy when I was pregnant. They are packed with calcium, but your body generally only uses what it needs and the rest get flushed out as waste. You could also drink peppermint tea, which you can buy caffeine free.

If you want to go the herbal route, check with your doctor first. Ginger is a fabulous herb that has soothing effects on an upset tummy. But, if you don't want to take a herb but still want the ginger effects, something very tasty would be ginger snaps. You can buy that in a grocery store. I used to keep a box in my car.

I used to keep a package of unsalted or salted soda crackers at my bedside. In my car, I kept a package of crackers, ginger snaps, and then in my purse, a bag of peppermint tums, just in case I needed them.

Although all these lovely natural things worked for me with both of my pregnancies with my sons, when I was expecting my daughter, things just got a little worse. With all of my pregnancies I always had one thing that would set me off the most, but with her, it seemed like everything was not allowed in my tummy. Since I was loosing weight so quickly, my doctor prescribed me Diclectin. It is a pregnancy safe drug (if you look at it, there is a picture of a pregnant mommy on it) and that was the only way that I could actually keep anything down. Every pregnancy is different, and doctors usually take them case by case.

With both my sons I was prescribed Diclectin as well, but I was determined not to use it in fear of anything that would disrupt my pregnancy or my baby. Although my fears were common, I know now that I should have done the research and calmed my fears. So when it came to my health and the health of my unborn baby (my daughter) I realized that I had no choice but to take Diclectin. I did the research and I did take the medication. My daughter is healthy and happy and to think that I could have lost her is now put behind me. Thank goodness for research! - 30525

Would You Like To Know When Is The Best Time To Conceive A Boy

By Allison Thompson

For any couple who would like to have a baby boy then their chances of doing so is much higher than they would have thought. According to a lot of research carried out the chances for any couple to have a boy rather than a girl is very high indeed. Yet if they were to learn about when is the best time to conceive a boy this will further increase their chances of doing so.

There are certain techniques that one can try and which will further boost the chances of a couple when trying to conceive a boy rather than a girl. In this article we look at just a couple of the methods a couple may want to consider using when attempting to have a baby boy. In both of the methods we discuss in the article we explain when is the best time to conceive a boy.

Method 1 - The Shettles Method

This particular technique aims to ensure that the sperm which contains Y chromosomes is able to reach the egg before the sperm carrying the X chromosomes is able to. The sperm carrying the Y chromosomes tend to move much more quickly than the sperm that contains the X chromosomes so this is something which needs to be taken into careful consideration when a couple are trying to have a baby which is a boy.

In Dr Shettles book "How to Choose the Sex of Your Baby: The Method Best Supported by Scientific Evidence", he recommends that couples have intercourse within the 24 hour period when a woman's has begun to ovulate and also that it shouldn't take place 12 hours after her ovulation period has ceased.

Along with him giving a specific time period in which to have intercourse he feels that by the man penetrating deeper into the woman will enable their sperm to be deposited closer to the cervix. This means that the more aggressive sperm that contains the Y chromosomes has in fact a head start in the fertilization process.

Method 2 - Whelan Method

This particular technique was devised by a Dr Whelan in order to rebut Dr Shettles technique. With her technique Dr Whelan feels that for a couple to increase their chances of conceiving a boy they need to have intercourse during the very early part of a woman's monthly cycle. Research carried out in to this technique has found that 68% of the time couples using this one were able to conceive the boy that they wanted.

Certainly when it comes to finding out when is the best time to conceive a boy many people have different opinions on this. However there are other methods that couples have used and which have provided them with the desired results. Some couples have found making changes to their diet and eating more red meat and salty snacks can help. Whilst for other couples they tried the method where the man drank coffee before intercourse and this they believed help them to conceive a boy rather than a girl. - 30525

Ovarian Cysts Treatment-Is Surgery The Only Option?

By Evelyn Hamelton

Ovarian cyst treatment options are dependent on the type of cyst and whether or not it is hindrance. Many women have ovarian cysts which never require medication because often ovarian cysts are present without symptoms, discomfort or interference with routine menstrual cycles.

If ovarian cysts are discovered the patient will often be told to wait one to three months to see if the cysts will disappear naturally. The patient will be checked again at the end of this time and if the cyst is still present a course of action discussed.

Reasons to treat may include the size of the cyst (because rupture and obstruction with blood supply are risks when the cyst is large), menstrual cycle changes and degeneration of surrounding tissue. Some unwanted side effects of ovarian cysts may include pain and excessive hair growth. If ovarian cyst treatment is necessary because of the size of the cyst, persistent discomfort, or unacceptable side effects the patient has several options.

When ovarian cyst treatment options are considered an ultrasound is done and the size, type and location of the cyst determined. Once this is established the cyst can either be drained or removed. The former option is less intrusive and can be done using a procedure called fenestration. This procedure allows a surgeon to use ultrasound and lasers to make a cut in the cyst wall and drain it without having to remove the cyst or ovaries, and sparing the women undue scarring.

Alternatively, if the cyst is benign it can be removed using keyhole surgery under general anesthesia, with the probability of an excellent outcome. If the ovarian cyst is big or possibly cancerous, a larger stomach incision is made and the cyst is removed and checked for cancer and a plan of treatment is pursued.

There is some disagreement amongst practitioners about ovarian cyst treatment options; whether benign cysts should be removed and in which instances the ovary should be removed as well. It pays to do some research and perhaps search out a second opinion if the choice is uncertain. The persistent appearance of ovarian cysts can at times be attributed to stress, diet or hormones. Modifying lifestyle and reducing stress can often help halt the recurrence of ovarian cysts and eliminate the need for any future ovarian cyst treatments. - 30525

How Does a Woman Get Pregnant?

By Miriam Sky

Getting pregnant is a numbers game and getting pregnant also means getting very lucky. In order to get pregnant, you must do some effort with your partner to increase your odds of conceiving. You want to get pregnant but do you exactly know how pregnancy happens? Before pregnancy can be declared official, it has to undergo several processes and several stages.

Pregnancy happens when semen enters a female vagina which happens during unprotected intercourse. The sperm then unites with egg if a woman has ovulated. Ovulation happens once a month. The sperm and egg however have a lifespan.

The egg on the other hand, travels from the ovaries, goes to the fallopian tube, and into the uterus. The uterus can be called the ?meeting place? of the sperm and the egg. This is where they will unite and where the egg gets fertilized. This is the very first stage of pregnancy which is called conception. Conception happens when the sperm and egg unites and fertilized.

A pregnancy does not start until the fertilized egg attaches itself into the uterus. Once every month, the woman?s body prepares itself for a possible pregnancy by thickening the lining of the uterus. If the egg does not attach to the uterus, then the lining will pass out through the vagina. This is the very reason why you have your monthly periods. If the egg attaches itself to lining of the uterus, the egg then develops into an embryo. The embryo then develops into a fetus together with the placenta. Once this happens, it is official that your pregnancy has already happened.

However, if the sperm and the egg cell fail to unite, the egg dies and the uterine lining disintegrates. The blood and the tissue from the uterus will then passed out of the body through the vagina. This is the reason then why a woman has her menstruation monthly. - 30525

Singling Out Fine Crib Sheets for Your Baby Boy is Simple

By Dorothea Frankson

If you're expecting a little boy, you are probably working hard to prepare a nursery for your new little bundle of joy. You are probably thinking about color schemes, decorating themes, what you need to purchase, and crib bedding. You have probably seen lots of different pieces of baby bedding as you shop, and you've probably wondered if some of them, or any of them, are really necessary.

Many nursery items will help keep your child safe, and many others won't keep him safe or may even make him less safe. These are the things you'll need to make your baby boy's crib comfortable.

The crib necessities for your baby boy should include a mattress cover to protect his crib mattress from diaper leaks and other baby mishaps. You will want at least two crib sheets that are machine washable so that you can make quick changes when you need to. You'll need fitted crib sheets for your baby boy, and as with other crib bedding, you should get several so there's always a clean one available.

Crib bumper pads are somewhat controversial these days; on one hand they protect babies from getting caught between the railings of the crib, but on the other hand, they can pose a suffocation risk. Baby boy sports bedding can be selected which has masculine colors which are sweet and you can add some patterns to it, even you can have sets with mesh crib guards, balancing your concerns about the baby suffocation and they are easily available in baby stores all over.

Some items are unsafe and, as such, have no place when you choose baby bedding. Pillows and blankets are unsafe for use with newborns inside the crib, but provide great support for mom's back in the rocking chair.

Close supervision or waiting until your child is a toddler should be required before using many of the usual nursery decor items.

Older family members may urge you to use an heirloom crib set, but remind them that over the years, experts' recommendations regarding a safe sleeping environment for babies have changed quite a bit. You will keep your baby safe and comfortable if you choose his crib carefully. - 30525

Conceiving A Baby Girl

By Jerry Lee

Want to add a "Daddy's little girl" to your family? Need a girl to go with the boy/boys you already have?

No matter what your reasons there are simple, natural, at home steps you can take that can raise your chance conceiving a baby girl from the normal 50/50 to well over 94%!

A simple three step system was developed by the late Dr. Landrum Shettles, and his simple methods have helped countless thousands of couples successfully choose the gender of their babies. Now let's take a quick look at these steps more detail shall we?

1. You need to learn how to predict your day of ovulation. I realize this is difficult for some women, but you'll need to know when your going to ovulate, as this is a very important in order to time when to have sex to conceive.

2. Have sex to conceive in the right way. What do I mean by that? Well you'll want to have sex in positions that will allow for shallow penetration if you are wanting to conceive a baby girl.

3. Your bodily ph will have to be controlled. You can accomplish this in two ways diet and/or douching. By eating the right foods and with the addition of a few supplements you can over time (it won't change overnite) effectively lower you body's ph, or to look at it another way you'll be raising your body's acidity. You will need to check you ph regularly and the best way to do this is with ph test strips, which you can buy through links on my site. Douching although effective has been known to cause infections, so I would recommend douching to control your ph only under your doctors supervision.

If you want to succeed in conceiving a baby girl you will have to be both dilegent, and precise in implementing these at home, low tech techniques.

Visit my site for more information as well as links to the best guides online to walk you through the process step by step. I would look at it this way: if your serious about adding a baby girl to your family seek all the help you can get, but if you fail in your efforts, well you'll still have a beautiful little baby boy to love and cherish! - 30525

Envisage How Frivolously You Can Have Rights To a Attractive Baby Room

By Dorothea Frankson

Deciding on decorations for a new baby's room is always an exciting and thoroughly enjoyable activity. There are such an overwhelming amount of possible choices, that many parents get that "deer caught in the headlight" feeling when it is time to make a decision. If you find out the gender of your baby before the birth, it's easier to choose colors, decorations and furniture to match the baby bedding.

Not sure whether the baby will be a boy or a girl? Select neutral colors such as yellows and greens. Don't be reluctant to do some inquiry regarding the sale going on in neighboring kids' outlets because it is possible for you to find an excellent crib set being sold at an outlet close to your house.

It seems easier to decorate a nursery for a girl, probably due to the fact that there are more designs available for girls. When you spend the time to choose the proper bed linens to work with the crib and dresser design, almost any type of baby furniture style can work in a little girl's room.

Girl nursery bedding items are available to match any theme because of the infinite number of designs and colors company's manufacture. In addition, you can match the crib set with the decor of baby's room to help pull all the elements together for a fantastic looking room.

Local boutique baby stores are often the best places to look for nursery furniture and accessories, because these independent shops can order expertly customized, one-of-a-kind items direct from the manufacturer. If you are considering something unique, such as furniture with customized engraving, you should arrange a visit with a nearby shopkeeper to talk about your thoughts for the furniture or the crib bedding.

Many small stores are excited to help because it allows them to show their attention to small details and excellent customer service. They will offer you assistance along every step of the way, and you will be able to pay attention to all of the other details surrounding bringing your new daughter home for the first time. - 30525

Beautify your Skin. Organic Skin Care is what it Deserves

By Amy Nutt

There is a multitude of different ways that you can beautify your skin from head to toe, but the best way is always to use products that are natural, healthy for your skin and in most cases, organic.

Face it, organic skin care is the very best that skin care has to offer, and this is exactly what your skin deserves. So if you want to beautify your skin the right way, you should be using organic skin care products that promote health and beauty in a natural way.

If you are part of that truly large percentage of women that are experiencing skin sensitivity issues, then organic skin care is likely going to be the perfect answer for you. Organic skin care formulas are rich in fruit extracts, natural essential oils and a number of other natural and organic ingredients that have very little history of ever causing an unpleasant reaction or activating irritation or redness of the skin. What this means is that potentially, organic skin care products can be the skin care regimen solution that you have been looking for all along.

Make sure that you are thoroughly reading all of the labels and understanding all of the ingredients contained within organic skin care products that you choose even if you do not have skin sensitivity issues. Just because the products are organic, that does not mean that there won't be an ingredient in there that you just happen to be allergic to. Understanding what you are applying to your body is vitally important, so you should not simply trust the "certified organic" label, but rather actually take the time to get to know the products that you are using.

Organic skin care products such as natural body washescontain a lot of really natural ingredients. You are more likely to find milk, oatmeal, honey and cinnamon than long and confusing chemical names that leave you scratching your head. What would you rather rub on your skin, milk and honey or phthalates?

Organic skin care is good both for your body and our environment, because anything that does not contain chemical compounds and additives is going to break down much more easily without causing any harm to animals, flowers, trees or the environment in general. If you have not already tried out organic skin care products, then what are you waiting for? Now is the chance for you to beauty your skin while giving your face and your body a real taste of what nature is all about. Nothing is capable of nourishing your body as effectively as organic skin care products, because no product could be as natural or nourishing as a product that is filled with elements from the earth and the environment like fruit extracts, natural essential oils and elements like milk, honey, sugar and spices for example. - 30525

Got Birth Plans?

By Anna Snyder

So, the baby is coming soon. Have you decided whether you are going to have an epidural or not? Have you decided what was going to happen? Sometimes we are ready, but sometimes things are no longer in our control.

Most of us are quite sure that we are going to have a "natural" birth, including drug free. Others opt for the medications that make us comfortable. This quite often depends on our pain tolerance. There is no shame in having medication to help us through this time. Because of all the research that has been happening over all these years, child birth is no longer a horrible experience with tons of pain. We now have options at our finger tips.

There is some exceptions to the rule in regards to pain medication. Some women are terrified of needles, or just want to have the least invasive birth possible. There are other options for them in this case (e.g. laughing gas). Some women just have no choice because of technical difficulties, and others just want to be comfortable.

As far as natural birth (whether with drugs or without) or C-section, amazingly we do have a choice if we want one or the other. Strangely enough, some women do choose to have the C-section and avoid the pain of child birth. I guess we are slightly blinded by the fact that yes, if we do choose that method, we do avoid the birthing pains, but what about the pain afterwords? Did you know that a Cesarean is major surgery? What about the pain after that?

For the epidural, have you thought of the complications that could happen during and throughout this? I guess as women, we don't think of the implications, we just want the quick fix. I won't scare you with the details of my experience, just be careful. Do your research about topics.

I have experienced both natural birth and C-section, and let me tell you, I would rather pick the natural birth, no matter the tons of complications that went with it. The recovery afterwords is so much easier and quick compared to the slow recovery of the C-section. After a Cesarean (since the major muscle was cut), you can't do abdominal exercises for 6 weeks or longer. That definitely can be a drag. Once again, my experiences with these two are quite grotesque, so I won't scare you with them.

What I am trying to say with this article is: do your research. Don't let other people scare you with their stories (that is why I didn't tell you my stories), but still be open minded to what is available for you. Educate yourself, and your spouse or significant other. Make a plan, and try to stick to it (unless circumstances change it of course). Each experience is unique, so please take it day by day and try to enjoy life. - 30525

How Beneficial Is It for Your Skin to Use an Organic Body Wash

By Amy Nutt

While most individuals are more than happy to utilize organic products, it is sometimes a mystery as to exactly what benefits these organic products offer. With so many different types of organic products on the market, it is sometimes a guessing game as to which products actually have a significant amount of benefit for the user and which are simply advertised as helpful but are not significantly better than the alternative.

With so many different types of products available, it can be hard to decide which ones are actually useful and which are simply benefiting from a strong level of advertising.

By utilizing a purely organic body wash, you can eliminate a lot of the harsh chemicals that cause all manner of problems with irritable skin and flaky scalps. With so many people suffering from these types of conditions, it is not surprising that there is such a push toward using organic products of this nature.

By utilizing organic products, you can ensure that you are not allowing chemicals to come into contact with your skin and body as well as keeping those selfsame chemicals from the septic system or city sewage system in your area. These are all valid concerns, as there are all manner of ramifications for allowing chemicals to interact with the soil in any particular environment. These chemicals eventually wash down into the local aquifer and cause significant difficulties for species of animals in the area.

In addition to minimizing the exposure to chemicals, these types of organic body washes are generally far more effective as well. Made generally from all manner of variety of fruits, berries and naturally occurring products, organic body washes can leave you feeling rejuvenated and healthy, making it worth the effort to seek them out and use them exclusively. With all of the focus on organic body washes, it is abundantly clear that there is a tremendous level of interest in moving away from chemical-based cleansers and utilizing organic products as often as possible. With all the people around the world that are focused on steering clear of harmful chemical additives, it seems like only a matter of time before all products are made from organic resources.

In addition to the benefits to your self and your local area, the use of organic products is far less of a burden on the environment as well. Considering that every drop of chemicals that are utilized in the day-to-day life of human beings eventually makes its way into some type of water supply, it is a good idea to reduce your footprint and utilize the least harmful products that you can possibly find. With this effort, you can ensure that future generations do not have to deal with the chemicals that we leave behind, helping them to lead a happier and fuller life. Whatever other benefits you might obtain from using an organic body wash, the minimizing of the impact on the environment is certainly a compelling reason to look into the organic body washes that are available almost everywhere. - 30525

Committing Yourself on Seemly Newborn Crib Sheets For Your Nursery

By Dorothea Frankson

When purchasing things for a new born, some parents ignore the significance of good nursery bedding. Parents shopping for baby bedding can be bewildered by the variety of styles and materials, not to mention the sheer number of items. Don't be distracted by designer names or attractive styles - bedding the most important part of the nursery and it's necessary for your baby's health and well-being.

Crib and bedding should provide warmth, comfort and cleanliness. Neither baby nor parents should suffer interrupted sleep because baby is restless and uncomfortable from bedding that is too warm or not warm enough. Before your child is exposed to a newly purchased baby blanket or bedding, wash them all with special baby detergents to eliminate any sprays or chemical that could harm your child.

Baby boy bedding sets are a tempting alternative for a lot of items that you would require for baby's crib such as bumper par or crib sheets. You can buy almost all necessary items in matching designs at cheaper prices. Choose crib bedding that's cozy and warm so that your baby feels like he's being held even when he's in his crib.

Care should be taken not to purchase a set with many unnecessary items because this can be uneconomical--you want to be absolutely sure that you're getting your money's worth. Decorative frills and ribbons look nice, but can you live with the hazard they pose to your baby and very young children? Decorative items such as pillows should not be placed in an infant's crib. Unnecessary items in the crib not only appose a choking hazard but can increase the risk of suffocation and SIDS.

Comfort, simplicity, tradition and value are found in many economical fabric and bedding sets. Most parents find that a few high-quality fitted crib sheets are sufficient for their needs, while extra quilts and blankets aren't needed. Cotton is an excellent material for all seasons, being cool and breathable in summer and warm in the cooler months.

A layer of fleece between the mattress and the crib sheet can provide extra warmth in cold climates. Be careful to choose gender-neutral colors and patterns if you don't know your baby's sex yet; otherwise, your little boy may have to bed down among pink and purple hearts, or your baby girl may have to dream sweetly in a nautical-themed crib set. - 30525

How Do You Get Pregnant

By Miriam Sky

Getting pregnant is a numbers game and getting pregnant also means getting very lucky. In order to get pregnant, you must do some effort with your partner to increase your odds of conceiving. You want to get pregnant but do you exactly know how pregnancy happens? Before pregnancy can be declared official, it has to undergo several processes and several stages.

Pregnancy happens when semen enters a female vagina which happens during unprotected intercourse. The sperm then unites with egg if a woman has ovulated. Ovulation happens once a month. The sperm and egg however have a lifespan.

The egg on the other hand, travels from the ovaries, goes to the fallopian tube, and into the uterus. The uterus can be called the ?meeting place? of the sperm and the egg. This is where they will unite and where the egg gets fertilized. This is the very first stage of pregnancy which is called conception. Conception happens when the sperm and egg unites and fertilized.

A pregnancy does not start until the fertilized egg attaches itself into the uterus. Once every month, the woman?s body prepares itself for a possible pregnancy by thickening the lining of the uterus. If the egg does not attach to the uterus, then the lining will pass out through the vagina. This is the very reason why you have your monthly periods. If the egg attaches itself to lining of the uterus, the egg then develops into an embryo. The embryo then develops into a fetus together with the placenta. Once this happens, it is official that your pregnancy has already happened.

However, if the sperm and the egg cell fail to unite, the egg dies and the uterine lining disintegrates. The blood and the tissue from the uterus will then passed out of the body through the vagina. This is the reason then why a woman has her menstruation monthly. - 30525

Organic Skin Care Can Give You A Radiant Glow

By Amy Nutt

If you want for your skin to have a truly radiant glow, then one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to make sure that your skin care routine is completely and totally organic in nature. The skin is the largest organ of the body and it absorbs up to 60% of what you apply on it. As you apply chemicals on your face daily, the effects may not be immediately apparent; however it will cause your body to deteriorate. Organic products offer the effects of beautified skin without the negative impacts.

There are a multitude of unique benefits that come with the act of choosing organic skin care products, and this article is going to look at what organic skin care products can do for you in order to give your skin a truly radiant glow from head to toe.

If you want naturally radiant skin, then it should make sense for you to use skin care products that are natural and organic. Natural skin care products use naturally derived ingredients like essential oils, flowers, roots, herbs and other purely natural ingredients along with other natural elements in order to create a skin care product that is healthy and nourishing to promote radiant skin and a healthy body.

The classic definition for natural skin care relates to using ingredients that were sourced botanically without using synthetic or manufactured chemicals or ingredients. The skin is the largest organ in your body and so you should make the effort to keep it healthy, nourished and radiant by any means necessary.

There are a myriad of different organic skin care products on the market today, and reading the labels is one of the most important things that you can do because it is going to give you a good idea of what you are putting on your skin. Keep in mind that natural skin care and organic skin care are two different things - And understanding the difference between the two things is of vital importance if you want to get the very best out of your skin care regimen. No matter what skin care regimen you decide to choose, it is vitally important that you know what you are putting on your skin. Understand which ingredients are natural and which are not, and know what the potential effects are of each of the compounds, chemicals and other elements that you put on your skin before you try the product.

Choose products that are rich in products that you can name. Do you remember those ice cream ads where the only ingredients were the kinds of things you keep in your fridge? You should be choosing natural and organic skin care products citing ingredients like milk, honey, oatmeal, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, coconut, natural oils and so on. These are the nourishing ingredients that will allow your skin to be truly radiant from your head down to your toes. Skin care products should be rich in these natural elements and materials, essential oils, plants, flowers, fruits and other completely natural ingredients rather than chemicals that you cannot figure out how to pronounce. - 30525

Engineer a Awesome Nursery for Your Newborn Boy

By Dorothea Frankson

Your baby boy's arrival home is a significant moment, be he is your first child or not. By the time your baby is born you will have become an expert on all the ins and outs of decorating your nursery for her safety, comfort and personal style. You've probably put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the nursery will look good for your child, with pictures, shelves, and wallpaper intended to advance the desired decor.

Finding the right theme can be a challenge, but it is fun, too. Special attention must be paid to the most overlooked item, which is baby bedding. Many factors must be considered when it comes to the bedding - the material, the way it's made, ease of laundering, and, of course safety.

There is an infinite number of choices available, however, studying the options available can be to your advantage and help you minimize the number of acceptable alternatives. For instance, the material is of importance when you buy cheap baby boy bedding. Like bedding for adults, baby bedding can vary greatly from one brand or manufacturer to another.

The most popular materials that are used include polyester and cotton; the most oft-recommended of these options are those that come in all cotton. Your baby is likely to be safer if you pay close attention to the material of his or her bedding, and you can get the information you need from your retailer.

The bed type of the crib and the age of your baby are the two most important factors to consider when choosing bedding. You should get a firm mattress and a fitted bottom sheet to prevent your baby from tangling in the crib bedding.

Crib bedding must be researched carefully prior to purchase to ensure that the highest level of comfort can be enjoyed by your baby.

If you take a little bit of trouble to shop around you will end up with a set that is cost effective, nice to look at, and most important of all, something that your little baby boy will feel happy with! - 30525

Opening Baby Gifts is Not the Only Thing - Add Games

By Edie Mindell

Although traditional baby shower games never fail and are always a success, new baby shower games are emerging and spreading across the United States. These cool, unconventional activities are different than the classics but with all the fun and more. If you are aiming for a hip, edgier baby shower with a twist from the classic, all-American baby shower, include a few of these new, trendy games that are sure to be a hit at your shower.

The "Dirty Diaper" game is one of the most clever and unusual, yet surprisingly sweet games out there. For this game, fold white cloth napkins or square pieces of white fabric into small diapers. Inside one of these mini diapers, place an unwrapped Hersheys kiss or any other chocolate bonbon. Fasten all the diapers with a baby diaper safety pin.

When guests arrive to the baby shower, hand one mini baby diaper to each person. Tell the guests to keep them closed and to not open them until instructed to do so. Then, when the time comes for all your games and activities, tell your guests that one of them has a dirty diaper. Tell them to open the diapers all at once, and whoever has the "dirty diaper," or the chocolate bonbon inside of their diaper, wins a prize.

Another game with a meaning is the "umbilical cord." For this game, you will need two spools of string or yarn, and two spoons. Choose volunteers and set up two or more teams of about eight to ten people. Attach each spoon to the tip of each string or yarn. The point of the game is to pass the "umbilical cord" through all the members of each team, by passing the string in through the neck seam and out through the opening of the skirt of each team player. This is very humorous, as you can imagine. The first team that passes the cord through all of the members wins.

A game that is becoming increasingly popular among baby showers is "Guess Whos Baby Picture?" For this game, make sure to tell guests on the invitations, and remind them before the shower, to bring in a baby picture of themselves when they were infants. Number each picture and put them up on a big bulletin board. During the games and activities session of your baby shower, give each guest a paper and pens or pencils. Have each paper numbered with the amount of pictures posted on the bulletin board.

When the game begins, tell the guests to fill in the numbers on the paper with the names of the people who they believe correspond to the baby picture. For example, if I think that baby picture #1 corresponds to Katie, I would write "Katie" after the number one on my paper. The guest that has highest number of right answers wins the challenge. If there is more than one guest with the same highest number of right answers, issue a tiebreaker.

Remember, all of these new games started as an idea. Try to come up with a few clever, never before used games. Who knows, they could potentially become a hit by the end of the year! - 30525

Dermoid Ovarian Cysts-Truth or Fiction That Hair Grows Inside of Them?

By Evelyn Hamelton

Dermoid ovarian cysts or cystic teratoma is a relatively rare and very uncommon growth in the ovaries. And yes, dermoid ovarian cysts really do have teeth in them! Not just teeth either, this type of cyst may have traces of:

*Mature skin *Long hair *Teeth *Sebum glands (the oil secreting glands of hair follicles) *Bones *Eyes *Cartilage *Fat *Thyroid tissue *Nails *Blood

Basically, everything found in a human body can be lumped up in this cyst and encased in skin tissue. Without doubt dermoid ovarian cysts, or I should say all dermoid cysts because they can present in multiple areas of the body, are the most weird cyst a person can have. Strange though they are dermoid ovarian cysts are almost always benign because the tissue which forms the cyst is mature tissue. For example the skin found in a dermoid cyst is mature skin with hair follicles and sweat glands.

Dermoid ovarian cysts can occur at any age but are typically found in women of childbearing age between 15 and 40 years and as stated, are usually benign. Treatment of a benign dermoid ovarian cyst will usually involve laparoscopic surgery under general anesthetic, to remove the cyst. It is not considered urgent when the cyst is intact and benign. This procedure has an extremely high success rate and leaves the woman with very minimal scarring.

It is probable for dermoid ovarian cysts to rupture or become malignant but the incidence is rare, particularly for malignancy. Generally the cyst is benign and does not cause complications. In theory the cyst could stay put in the ovaries without causing harm but this cyst in particular, with it's unique material make-up, is one most women want removed.

In the rare instance that a rupture occurs grave complications can result and emergency treatment should be sought. If cancer is found the treatment is dependent on the stage and size of the cancer cells, as it is with other cancers, but it is important to remember these are very rare complications.

A dermoid cyst can be seen in the ovary with the various types of tissues like hair, skin, teeth and fat. It can be seen in one or both the ovaries. In general, the dermoid cysts are small and do not create symptoms till it grows larger. Very rarely these cysts twist and cause unbearable pain during which time surgery on emergency basis has to be undertaken. - 30525

Black and White Baby Bedding is the Chief Constituent to a Diverting and Stylish Baby Room

By Dorothea Frankson

Parents who prefer modern furnishings have been disappointed in the past to only find more traditional furniture choices.

While exploring options for modern baby bedding consider visually striking abstract prints ranging anywhere from brightest stripes and geometric to rolling psychedelic paisleys.

Crib sets make it easier and less expensive for parents to put a nursery together, since they can buy three sets and avoid the time-consuming process of matching bedding and bumpers. When baby, or mom and dad, have outgrown the look of the nursery one quick and inexpensive way to upgrade the decor is to switch out the crib sheets.

How to Purchase a Awesome Cot Bedding Set for Your Little One

By Dorothea Frankson

Baby bedding can be the most important thing that you will buy for your daughter's nursery, and the choices available to you will be seemingly endless. Choosing the right set for you and your new daughter can be anything from being over in minutes with a quick online search or a full day browsing your local baby superstore.

Keep some practical things in mind and you search will be easy. You will have no trouble deciding in the face of today's vast and varied selection. Just remember, when selecting a crib set for your baby's nursery, style can be your number one concern, but you should also consider functionality, seasonality, and durability.

There is a massive range of pink products, since this has, for years, been the obvious choice for a daughter. That being said there are other options and more and more people are opting for less traditional colors in their nursery decoration. Just about any pastel color will work for your newborn daughter, and if you are big on cartoon or popular characters, there will not be a shortage of options in this category either.

You can find something for any taste and any budget, but ultimately, your imagination will be your biggest constraint when it comes to decorating your nursery and the accessories you purchase to match it, including your baby crib bedding for girls.

Safety should be at the forefront of your mind - do not choose a baby bedding product simply because it has an attractive design or pattern. If you are expecting your baby in summer you will not need a thick blanket, but if your baby girl is expected in winter it will be a necessity.

You should also give thought to what type of bed you will be using for your baby, whether it will be a crib, bassinet or a pack-and-play baby bed to name but a few. Bottom sheets must fit properly and when using blankets you must make sure they are not creating a health or safety hazard. While you might feel like this is all too much for you to take in right now, everything that's been discussed here is something important to think about when you are out shopping for the ideal crib bedding. - 30525

Ovarian Cysts And Pregnancy: Discover A Safe And Easy Way To Get Rid Of Ovarian Cysts In Pregnancy

By Lisa Page

If you are expecting a baby and have ovarian cysts, then medically you have two choices depending on how much pain the cyst is causing you.

If the cyst is small and not troublesome, then your doctor might suggest a wait and see approach.

If on the other hand the cyst is getting bigger and is causing you a lot of pain then you are likely to face surgery which, as we both know carries a lot of risk, not only to you, but also to your baby.

Complications arise when the cysts bursts, or gets twisted on itself. So if you are pregnant and have ovarian cyst then you run the risk of the cyst causing you pain either when it ruptures or gets twisted on itself.

Before we talk about a simple and the most natural solution to getting rid of ovarian cysts during pregnancy, what are ovarian cysts anyway and how do they form?

A simple ovarian cyst is a sac containing fluid or semi-solid materials that develop in the ovary. These cysts come and go in women in their reproductive years but tend to resolve naturally without any medical intervention.

Occasionally though, some ovarian cysts fail to resolve naturally and instead continue to grow. Eventually getting to a point where it starts to cause the woman unbearable abdominal pain.

There are many symptoms of ovarian cysts include bloating, pain during intercourse, breast tenderness just to mention a few.

Ovarian Cysts and Pregnancy

If you are pregnant and have ovarian cysts, then you most probably have a corpus luteum cyst or cysts. The reason for this is best explained by looking at the ovulation cycle.

Once a month your ovary releases a follicle and this follicle is known as the corpus luteum.

This follicle contains an egg and during the normal process of ovulation releases this egg, and the shell (corpus luteum) that is left behind dissolves away naturally.

Occasionally the corpus luteum does not dissolve away naturally as it should but instead closes up on itself and starts to grow bigger.

So if you are pregnant and have ovarian cyst you either had it before you became pregnant and did not know it or it was the corpus luteum of the egg that was fertilized that did not dissolve away as it should.

What are your choices as a pregnant woman with Ovarian Cysts?

If you are getting pain from the cyst you could either to have them drained or surgically removed in the hospital or take control and get rid of the cyst using holistic and natural remedies that will not endanger you or your baby in any way. I am a mum myself, I know which one I would choose. - 30525
