Pregnancy Tips & Advice ~ A Pregnant Woman Should Know Before Expecting Your First Baby

November 27, 2011 By: Lynn Category: Feelings, My Daughter, My Son, New Beginnings, Pregnancy

I can’t say that I am as season as some, but I do have two children of different sex’s and I would like to go over tips and advice a pregnant woman should know before having their first baby.

  • There’s going to be a crazy amount of horror stories that you will hear from other mothers.  DON’T think that it will happen to you.  Every woman is different.  Every experience is different.  Don’t let one mother’s story get into your head and determine what your birthing story will be.
  • Being emotional is COMPLETELY normal.  It’s mostly in the third trimester, that you are a walking crazy lady, but it’s normal just the same.
  • Not every women enjoys being pregnant!  We do not ALL glow.  I personally hated every minute of being pregnant with my daughter.  I felt like death crap ALL the time.  With my son, I enjoyed everything about it!   Our bodies are their own mind.  You will just have to go with it!!
  • Pickles are not everybody’s thing!  It’s funny, as soon as someone hears that you are pregnant, they automatically think that you want a jar of dill pickles with ice cream.  Give me a break we don’t all have cravings and we don’t all crave the same thing!! 
  • Some woman have the perfect basketball bellies, some do not…that’s all I will say about that.
  • Just because there are two of you now…doesn’t not mean you can eat for two….their is only you trying to loose the weight.  Be healthy.
  • Reading all the books out there does not make you a perfect mother.  It’s all about trial and error.  We all make mistakes.  All of our children have fallen off of a bed or two.
  • Don’t stress over every feeling that you body gives you.  Enjoy what you can, and if you can’t then don’t over analyze, take a nap and then revisit the situation.
  • You will have to pee all the time!  It will take more time to pull down your pants, dribble and wipe yourself then what will actually come out of you!  This will get very annoying, but not as annoying as still ”dribbling” yourself after you have the baby
  • Enjoy taking bath or shower.  It won’t happen very often when you have your new baby.
  • It’s over rated to get brand new things for the baby, example, crib, highchair, exersaucer…….they grow out if it in a heart beat.  If you can get the same things for second hand, you are smok’in with gas.

Being pregnant can be one of the most wonderful experiences.  Go with it, enjoy all the firsts, enjoy people rubbing your belly and guessing what you are going to have.  Basque in the glory that you are creating an amazing member to our society and your family. 

These are just a few thoughts do you have any advice for an expecting mom?  Did you experience any of the listed above?  What would you add to your own personal list?

How Do You Start Writing Or Blogging After You Have Stopped For So Long?

August 22, 2011 By: Lynn Category: New Beginnings

 It’s a well know fact that if you stop writing, even in your diary or journal that you probably will not start again; so the question is, how do you start writing or blogging after you have stopped?    In my case it is the challenge of having the time and motivation.  In the past year I have had another baby.  I had a beautiful baby boy and today he is in the 9th month of his life and is in all reality a ball of energy.  What a difference between a boy and a girl, hence the lack of time.

Writing is a hobby that takes alot of time and dedication, I would personally love to have one of those recorders that you can talk into.  It seems to me, like my best thoughts come to me when I am laying in bed at night….and of course I have no desire to get back up to write about the genious (to me) thoughts that I had let alone the title.

When I came back on here I went through some of the website/blogs that I use to have in my cache (favorites) and I would say that 55% aren’t writing anymore.  It’s hard to say why not, but at least I wasn’t the only one in a rut called the “hectic stimulus of life.”

It’s been so long since I wrote and I am so nervous that I have “lost it.”  My common sense plus sense of humour.  So you will have to bare with me, the articles may start off slow, but I will get into it again.

Have you ever stopped something in the past that you wish that you could have continued?

The Secret ~ The Law Of Attraction Change Your Life

January 27, 2010 By: Lynn Category: Feelings, Health, Love, Marriage, My Views, New Beginnings, Relationships

I am magnificent in human form.



“The Secret,” The  law of attraction, what is the law of attraction?  It manifest what you want, past, present and future.  Your thoughts are at your fingertip.

When you’re complaining about how bad it is, it only gets worse.  You have to focus on what you want.  Your passions, events and circumstances. 

Our thoughts cause our feelings, if we can take control of our emotions and bad vibes, then we will be able to feel good.  Your thoughts and feelings control your life.  We can shift our universe with our thoughts.  The good attracts us to good thoughts, a healthy emotional state.  Our power is through us, through the law of attraction.


“Follow your bliss and he universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” 

Joseph Campbell


What do you want?  Happiness, divine happiness.  Inner happiness is the fuel of success.  Then you need to….

Believe.  Believe in the unknown, believe that you will receive what you what.  You will attract the wants.

Receive.  Accept the feelings of wanting it.  Through your positive vibes you will receive. 

Gratitude.  What am I thankful for?  What are you thankful for?

Visualization, materializes your wants.  Take the time to see.  Close your eyes and visualize what you want.


“When you have inspired thoughts you need to trust them and act on them.” 


Your happiness lies within you.   Your thoughts and feelings create your life.  You will attract everything in life you want.  

 Energy Flows Where Attention Goes.


“Take the first step in faith, you don’t need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” 

Martin Luther King


To change our current circumstance we need to change our law of attraction.  Expect something better.  If you keep thing that you want in the future it is always going to stay in the future.  It will not be obtainable,  because you have not allowed it to be in the now, it’s stuck in your future.  You need to feel the now.  You have to invision having it in the present.   

When we are complaining about things we are just making it worse because all we are going to receive, is more things to complain about.  We need to start thinking posistive and strive for our goals, and make our goals reality.


 Do you have goals in your life?  Do know how to reach the laws of attraction?  Do you believe in the secret?
