Top 10 useless body parts

When you're sick you may feel that certain body parts are more trouble than they're worth. And in some cases, you'd be right. While the human body has evolved and adapted significantly since the caveman days, a few biological traces of our prehistoric ancestors still remain with us in the form of freeloading body parts we lug around with us, but have no use for. Take a gander at the top offenders!

10. Plica semilunaris You may not know it, but you have a third eyelid. Pull open the two more noticeable eyelids and take a look -- it's located right in the corner by the tear duct. This small third eyelid is left over from what's known as a "nictitating membrane," which is still present in full form in some animals including chickens, lizards and sharks.

9. Body hair No doubt we were once hairier. Up until about 3 million years ago, we were covered with body hair. But by the time Homo erectus arrived, the ability to sweat meant we could shed our woolly ways.

How to sterilize baby bottles

When feeding your newborn, don't assume that bottles and other items from their packages are clean. Always sterilize everything in water before use. This article will tell you how to sterilize your baby's bottles.

Steps Unwrap all bottles, nipples, and pacifiers from their packages and gather all items together. Separate the nipples from the nipple rings, if applicable; there's directions at the bottom for this.
Place a pot, filled with water, on the stove and turn the heat on to high.
Place items in the water, but be careful not to submerge more than the pot can hold. This can result in the water going over the top and bubbling over.
Wait until the water boils for at least five minutes before taking anything out.
Use a set of tongs to take out things from the hot water. Do not use your fingers or any other instrument. If you don't have tongs, use a fork to get out the nipples.
Set the items onto a dish rack or paper towels for them to dry. Repeat the above steps for any i…


Maternity dress

Thanks to my sister who sent this.

I love the color but not the design much (lol). Mamili pa jud og unsa ihatag.

She bought this for 699 pesos from Buntis. I know the price coz she didn't pull the the tag. It's kinda expensive for a dress like this with such a simple design. The texture or cloth is cotton.

Oh well, maybe it's the brand that made the price high.

I was joking to them that for the first time, I received something from the Philippines or from my family for how many months of staying here. We just laughed anyway.

Over-the-counter paternity test

DNA paternity testing kit goes on sale for 30 dollars at some US drugstore. Identigene, which runs a DNA testing laboratory,Test Collection Kit went on sale at the 4,363 Rite Aid drug stores throughout the United States, except New York. The swab in the kit is used to collect a saliva sample, to be mailed to the Identigene laboratory for an analysis that costs additional 119 dollars. It takes three to five business days to get the test results, which are delivered by mail, email, or online through a secured Web service.Sold without prescription, the paternity kits are not allowed as evidence in court, where more precise and costly DNA tests are required.

Doctor's appointment plus a dress from in-law

I had my monthly OB's appointment @ 1:30pm today. As usual, the doctor said I'm doing great as well as the baby. I was with my mom-in-law. Chad wasn't able to come as he can't take off from work. Me and his mom really get along so great. She loves to be with me.

After the check-up, we headed to Wal-mart. She was buying some stuff for her dog and garden. On the way to the doctor, she was telling me if I'd go with her, she's gonna buy me clothes. Well, I did. I thought she'd gonna forget it but not. She even insisted to pick what I want. I aint that "kapal ang mukha" to pick something really expensive. So I picked a pink dress for 13$. It's not really a maternity dress but the design is(as seen in the picture).

Just lovin the dress. Thankful as well for havin a sweet and funny in-law.

Gift for baby from Tita Lyn

Got a package from my sister in the Philippines last Saturday. I was surprised as she didn't tell me ahead that they'd sent something for the baby. It's a baby book. I love the color--pink. The designs of the pages are really pretty. Equipped with the informations that we are gonna fill in. It's such a lovely gift. Not only that, she spent almost a thousand for shipping coz this thing is real heavy yeah. Well, she got money anyway(lol).

Thanks Tita Lyn!

Pregnancy and sex

Pregnancy has brought me so much changes. Emotionally, physically , sexually and more.

Some pregnant women have different experiences with regards to their sex life. There are some whose hormones are so active with such thing and others don't.

In my case, it's so slow. It's comparable to a food. I've lose my appetite. It's very rare for me to like it. Good thing is that, my husband is so compassionate with the situation. He doesn't ask or force me to do it. Just lucky!

I dunno how many women out there are on the same boat like mine.

OB appointment

The other day, somebody from the doctor's office contacted my husband for the second time. They are re-scheduling my appointment again.

First, it was only the time that was reset. Instead of 11am they set it on 10 am on the 28th of this month. The reason? the doctor will attend a surgery.

Just lately, it's not just the time anymore. My supposedly check-up on the 28th was moved earlier. It'll be on the 26th at 1:30PM.

I wonder if they're gonna make some changes again. Hmn...let's just wait (lol).

Dealing with stretch marks

Lately, I am bothered by the itching on my tummy. My skin is really stretching (lol).

I have a lotion which I bought from Walmart. A friend recommended it as it did have a positive effect on her.

I hope it'll work on me. I wanna have a less stretch marks after giving birth.

Halle Berry's baby girl

Last Sunday, March 16 of this year, the award-winning actress gave birth to their bundle of joy. They named the baby Nahla Ariela Aubry. Nahla is an Arabic-based name that means, "drink of water". Nahla weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces.

Gabriel Aubry's ( Halle's boyfriend and a father to Nahla) family are so excited for the new addition to their family. Aubry has eight siblings.

Baby Nahla is the newest celebrity baby of time. I am thinking how much will be the cost of her first photos.

Dannielle's sonogram photos

My baby's cutie features. Her dad said that she got his nose and forehead. I'm glad coz mommy has a the "sarat" nose.

New blog

I am starting my new blog. This merely focuses on my life as a soon-to-be-mommy. A first time mommy.

Feeling the movements of my baby in my womb makes me so excited of seeing and touching her. I know we still have to wait for 4 more months before we can hold her tiny fingers.

Updates about Dannielle, my baby's name as well as my pregnancy will most likely be written and read here.

See ya around!
