Congratulations! Your body has become the growing factory for a human life. Pregnancy is really a beautiful thing, but its not all that glorious. A baby will seek out all the nutrients it needs from its mother's vitamin and mineral stores.

Organs will be pushed aside, hormones will change to compensate for the needs of mom and baby. Here is the important part: A mother's ability to function will depend heavily on her nutrient intake throughout the day. Because a fetus is designed to seek what it needs, it doesn't care if its leaving enough for mom. Eating enough quality nutrients will ensure that mom feels good while she is growing a baby!

Let's all start to teach our children to solve their own problems whenever possible. It might sound like they are crying but they are really just whining loudly with an additional wail for dramatic effect.
My son really enjoys playing youth soccer. He loves practices and games. He is learning to be a part of a team, and to follow the coach’s instructions. Our son is not a standout in the six and under division, but he enjoys participating and I support his participation in youth sports. I loathe the after game snack requirement.
Chinese Swimmer, Fu Yuanhui, made international headlines when she discussed her period following her team’s Olympic performance. Her team placed 4th in the 4x100 meter medley relay, narrowly missing a medal. (Fu went on to win an individual bronze in back stroke).

When you are blessed with a kid who sleeps through the night other parents will tell you one of two things. My kids never slept, or the next one is going to be a nightmare. As the parent of two good sleepers, maybe
