Pregnancy & Nursing tips
from Moms who amaze me!
I have 25 days to go until I hit my 39 week mark. I have now been on bed rest for 41 days. Because we were all ready to go for an induction at 34 weeks… I now find I have less on my “To-Do” list. So I have been spending more time reading, browsing, and pinning on Pinterest. I love Pinterest because I constantly find other moms who are awesome, encouraging, and have amazing ideas in their blogs.They come from many different points of view, but these mamas are crafty, thoughtful, and make me laugh! Here are some recent favorites:
1. NURSING TANK TOP:
I found this idea online when I was looking for some maternity tank tops. I’m not a super big fan of the no-support nursing bras that I wore with my first daughter, and wanted something more like a real bra with padding, underwire, etc. Side note: (Yes it is my mission along with my mother-in-law’s to get women to wear a proper fitting bra. If you haven’t been fit by a specialist at Nordstrom or somewhere else besides Victoria’s Secret, please please go! There are so many good brands that are meant to fit your body and will make you feel so good about yourself!) So I wanted to find some tanks to go with them. I stumbled across this idea from Undercover Mama. They took a tank top and made it hook to your bra! Genius!
**DISCLAIMER: I am not selling this idea. I am simply sharing this idea on a public blog for free. Since this is not my idea, I am not selling it in any way.
Then my sister-in-law found something even better– a DIY version of the same thing!
I am definitely going to make these!I found a pack of 9 cami’s on eBay for $36 with free shipping– that makes each nursing top $4! Can’t beat that!
2. THINGS TO DO IN THE LAST WEEKS OF PREGNANCY:
This is a must-read for any moms-to-be! Whether you have had one before or not, this has a great list of laugh out loud things that are MUST have items and ideas! My faves are #9 and 10. 🙂
3. GETTING INSPIRED TO LOSE THE BABY WEIGHT:
This working mom gained and lost her pregnancy weight. She is really funny, and very honest about what she did and how she lost her weight.
4. GETTING ORGANIZED:
This mama with OCD tendencies has made over her trunk of her minivan with super smart ideas for her kids whether it is just a short trip or a road trip! Loved her tips and the pic!
5. PRAYING FOR YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN:
I am a huge believer in the power of prayer. As a mom, I pray my girls will be healthy, know they are loved, and know the Lord. Plain and simple. This picture is a great reminder of many different aspects to pray for in our child’s life.
I just want to say that I am so thankful to all the women in my life who inspire me, encourage me, make me laugh, challenge me, and love me for who I am. Thank you for being the awesome people that you are. I hope and pray that my daughters will know in me the best that I have known in each of you, and be that kind of woman to those around them and eventually to their own children. Love to all of you~ JS
Proverbs 31 “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life….Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”
