It’s Thanksgiving Day today and just a month to go, it’ll be Christmas. This is the time of the year when partying and food feasting are endless. But for expecting moms out there, the holidays may be a good excuse to occasionally overeat but do remember that there are foods that you should avoid in the same way that certain skin creams like acsonix are a no-no for the protection of the growing baby inside your tummy.
The following are just a few of the Holiday foods to avoid when you’re pregnant:
1.) Unpasteurized Soft Cheese – the moistness and acidity of such cheese provide the perfect environment for listeria bacteria to grow. When exposed to this bacteria, it can cause listeriosis which could lead to miscarriage or the loss of a baby at birth.
2.) Uncooked turkey
3.) Brownie Batter – consuming uncooked eggs increases risk of exposure to salmonella
I just love surprises and I bet all expecting moms would love to be surprised with a baby shower that will be held in their honor. Friends and family members must coordinate very well so as not to spoil the fun of a surprise baby shower. The Baby Invitation must be carefully distributed because the last person you would want to take a peek on the invitation baby is the celebrant.
If ever I will get pregnant again say in two years time, I would certainly wear these:
I can’t help it but I’m teary-eyed as I’m making this entry. Well, nothing serious..blame it on the hormones…hmm, PMS-ing here. An online friend of mine just announced that she’s preggy. I congratulated her then seconds later, I found myself browsing my pregnancy journal which I had at my first blog. I’m deeply touched about my 24 Weeks and the traumatic ordeal where I journalled how we almost lost little A…of how scared we were and of how I felt blessed still towards the end of the ordeal because of love. I know little A and I both made it because of the prayers, love and care from the people around us then.
I’ve been a blogger for several years now and it’s the first time that I appreciated how I blogged a certain sentiment..I mean I know, I’m not a good writer..most specifically grammar and construction wise but this particular entry of mine surely touched my heart. In fact, I even initially wondered if I really did this not because of how long it was or how it’s near error-less but I can feel my own emotions here. It’s as if I’m transported back to that time of our ordeal, thus, I’m having the sniffles right now. And yes, just another eye-opener that I’m truly blessed.
