Can morning sickness predict the gender?

August 21st, 2008 by Glow Mama

According to this New York Times article this morning… recent studies showed that women who were hospitalized with their morning sickness in their first trimester (ie have hyperemesis gravidarum) were 80% more likely to have a baby girl!    Are the little girls getting a head start on their parent-torturing duties?

Bringing up a baby in a tough economy

August 18th, 2008 by Glow Mama

Need to make the $$ stretch further now that a baby is here, or on it’s way? 

Our friend Amy at www.thecradle.com was on ABC’s View from the Bay last week with lots of great tips and suggestions on how to be a thrifty mommy.  We love her advice about sticking to the three Bs to help stop us blowing the budget or breaking the bank: 

  • >Borrow - what you can, everything from maternity clothes to furniture
  • >Basics - stick to the necessities and try not to get carried away with the very cute but impractical extras
  • >Buy in Bulk - order large quantities online and looking for online discounts or coupon codes*

All great suggestions, but we think she forgot one…

  • >Be in to Win!  Baby and mommy pampering products can’t get much cheaper than free, so enter our Labor Day contest to win $250+ of gorgeous delights.
