    Myths About Pregnancy & Babies

    …You Heard What About Pregnancy?

    There are many myths about pregnancy that are heard by those planning a pregnancy, or are already pregnant. There may be a very slight truth to some of these myths, but for the majority of them, there is no truth to what is heard.

    Some of the more common pregnancy myths are:

    The baby’s sex can be determined by the position used for sexual intercourse

    There is no truth that a certain position will result in a specific sex – boy or girl. It is the father’s sperm carrying the X chromosome that fertilizes the egg that causes a daughter, or the Y chromosome that causes a son.

    You can’t get pregnant the first time you have intercourse

    Pregnancy can occur anytime that vaginal intercourse occurs without using a birth control method. The sperm and egg don’t know whether it’s the first time for intercourse or not.

    Feeling Sexy After Pregnancy

    You’re exhausted. Your favorite things to wear are sweats and fuzzy socks. Your hair is held back in a ponytail and you can’t remember if you brushed your teeth this morning.

    Digital Cameras Tips to Help Preserve the Memories

    Digital Camera Tips

    Being pregnant and having a baby are life-changing events. Taking photographs will capture moments that you want to remember forever. These moments cannot be re-captured: they live only in images and in your mind. Whether you are photographing your baby’s first day on earth or his/her first steps, you are celebrating something that is beautiful; a child that brings you much love and happiness (and sleep deprivation, too—I am a mom, I know!). In all seriousness, there are so many wonderful scenes to photograph and celebrate! You are creating history: history that can be shared with your grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so forth. But what happens to those images after you take them? Back when people were photographing with 35mm film, everything was printed, but that is no longer the case.

    Digital has many advantages and many drawbacks. The biggest drawback I see is people failing to follow through Read more
