Protein                                       Fatigue                                                  HERE  (My midwife strongly

                                                                                                  often when I was expecting Cassidy.

*When I was pregnant with Aaliyah I was plagued often by yeast infections.  My doctor gave me prescription medication; but soon after taking that I contracted a serious bladder (urinary tract infection - UTI).  The next time I saw him I told him about it and he replied, "Oh yea, sometimes that is a side affect of the yeast infection medication."  Then he promptly wrote me a prescription for my bladder infection.  When I arrived home, I threw it directly into the trash and went online to do my own research.  I started taking acidophiles (the culture in yogurt that combats Yeast infections) and cranberry supplements and drinking cranberry juice (As a child I hated yogurt and wasn't willing to try it again.  Now I eat yogurt almost daily...and I love it.  Great source of protein as well...especially Greek yogurt!).  Both cleared up after about two days.

Hope this helps someone!!!
Until next time,

Ressurection Sunday

We had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday!  One of our favorite parts of the service was a skit that our children put on.  (Photos coming!!! Unfortunately I was directing the skit and song so I had to delegate my normal job as church photographer.  The one responsible ran out of room on their memory stick; but forgot that I had put an extra in the camera bag.  He's fired!!! - I won't tell you who it is; but his initials are Pastor RDB! LOL)  The children did such a great job with the skit as well as their song.  I do have a few pics of Bro. Beckles and the girls after church though.

Until next time,

Prenancy survival guide

Recently I was invited to speak at a baby shower for one of our faithful ladies.  We had a great time; but one of the things I really enjoyed was this game.  I put together a list of ten things that I consider "must have's"  while I am pregnant.  The mother who could match the most home remedies with the correct symptom won a batch of homemade laundry soap.  Can you match the remedy with the ailment?
