Australian Tea Tree Oil Review

this tea tree oil is amazing. I had some acne and I used this on my skin and it took the acne away and made my skin so soft. Mixed with water this tea tree oil is also a great chemical-free cleaner. It can also be used for manicure and pedicures, scalp treatments, baby care, stain remover, pest control, mold remover, and rash and sunburn relief. This is a great chemical free way to do things we do every day. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Prenatal Appointment schedule

Some of you are moms, some are pregnant, and some want to be pregnant now or in the future. One big question is how many appointments will I have and when are my major appointments and what happens? Here is a schedule of appointments please note these weeks are approximate but some tests must be done at certain points:

4 weeks: Optional blood test to confirm pregnancy
8 weeks: this is around the time when most doctors have you come in for the first time. There is usually the first ultrasound to do a dating scan to get an accurate due date. Your medical history will be taken as well as a physical exam done. They will do blood work, urinalysis, STD testing, and a pap smear if one hasn't been done recently.
12 weeks: You can have the Nuchal Translucency test done which is blood work and an ultrasound to test for Down Syndrome.
11-12 weeks: Optional Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS). This is a prenatal test that checks for genetic defects such as Down Syndrome, other trisomies, sex chromosome abnormalities, and more.This test is invasive and carries a slight risk of miscarriage so it is recommended only for those at high risk.
15-20 weeks: Optional Amniocentesis. This is like the CVS but this can also test for neural tube defects. This carries a risk of miscarriage.
16 weeks: Quad screen blood test for neural tube defects and Down Syndrome.
20 weeks: Full Anatomy scan and gender reveal.
24 weeks: blood glucose test for Gestational Diabetes
28 weeks: fetal heartbeat
32 weeks: fetal heartbeat
34 weeks: fetal heartbeat
36 weeks: Group B strep test. You will get a swab done to check for Group B strep. If it is positive you will receive antibiotics during labor.
37 weeks: cervical check
38 weeks: cervical check
39 weeks: cervical check
40 weeks: cervical check

also normally at each visit you will also have a urine test done. You may receive more ultrasounds. The number depends on your doctor, insurance, and if you have any complications.

Rainbow baby

Ok I guess I will now make it Blog official...we found out we are expecting our Rainbow baby....everyone knows we lost our Oscar on Sept 30, 2013 at 16 weeks 4 days. I am now 4 weeks 5 days with our rainbow and by my LMP am due April 11, 2015. We are very excited, yet kind of nervous. Bella, my oldest, keeps telling me I am having twins and that they are 2 girls. This makes me quite nervous as before I found out I was pregnant I was having dreams of having twins. I have my first doctor visit tomorrow most likely for blood work and everything since I am high risk. I am looking forward to my first ultrasound to see if Bella is right or not.

This was our announcement:

I will be trying to post weekly with a bump picture, updates, symptoms and more so keep following.
Since the beginning I have had morning sickness like crazy. Not always actually getting sick, although I have a few times, but almost anything I eat makes me feel nauseous and sick. I am also very tired like all the time. I would love to just sleep all day, although we know with 3 kids that is not possible.

Rainbow Loom review

Disclaimer: I did receive products for free to try, but all opinions are my own.

I received a pack of Rainbow Braid rainbow loom rubber bands and a Rainbow loom. I got the pack of 7200 bands. This included 3 different types of bands: solid, glow in the dark, and glitter. The solid includes 300 of each of these colors: gold, silver, red, white, purple, turquoise, black, light blue, dark blue, hot pink, dark green, orange, and yellow. The glow in the dark includes 300 of each: yellow, green, blue, pink, orange, and purple. The glitter has 300 of each as well in: pink, blue, purple, orange, and green. These bands are easy to use. They stretch well, but do not easily break. Me and my kids love making bracelets with them. Please go here for more on this product as they have many assortments available for great prices. I would definitely recommend this company and their products.

here is a awareness ribbon bracelet I made with the bands.

this one is called a diamond bracelet

this is a single chain bracelet

this is a triple single bracelet

all bracelets were made with the Rainbow Braid brand bands
