Last week my husband and I went in for our dating ultrasound. During the ultrasound, they measure the amniotic sac and the baby to verify how far along you are and give you a precise due date. They prefer not to go just by the last menstrual period date. Also no one really knows when you ovulated, so it gives the doctors an accurate time frame. The technician that did the ultrasound also explained how important the date is, because most women need some medical treatment or testing through their pregnancy. The doctor wants to make sure they are not doing it too early or too late.

Good Gracious!

The CPSC has just released a 28 page PDF document to help sellers of used children’s products understand the CPSIA and existing regulations:

CPSC Handbook for Resale Stores and Product Resellers

While it’s directed at the sale of used products, it certainly contains more “digestible” information on the CPSIA then most of government publications. Smile

My husband and I decided we should tell his parents I am pregnant. I wanted to wait until Mother’s Day, but my husband thought they would enjoy it more if we told them first, without other family members prior to Mother’s Day.

I am so excited to be getting my art into Hong Kong! Linea Negra Maternity is the name of the store. They sell high end maternity clothes and for baby as well. They have recently been adding other products to the store and I’m so happy to be one of them. The pictures above are a few of what they purchased. The shipment is ready and going today…well, it’s been ready and finally UPS is picking it up today.

Seeing the legions of new celebrity parents filling the tabloids, she realized that their babies would be ideal models for luxury baby products, and launched BopStarBaby in the spring of 2006.

Like most pregnant woman I have morning sickness. Also known as ALL day sickness. I’ve been lucky enough that I have not thrown up, but I still feel queasy and nauseous most of the day. I’ve read in one of my pregnancy books it is due to hormone changes. I’ve looked on the Internet for various cures/suggestions to help ease the nausea. I found a few suggestions — ginger and peppermint seem to be the most prominent helpers.

I recently found out I am pregnant! Yeah! I’m so excited. I decided to tell my boss and coworkers, since I will be going to many appointments in the next few weeks. One of my coworkers had gotten a daily baby pregnancy calendar at a tradeshow. She said she wasn’t too sure about it. She had read the first few weeks and they were pretty interesting. So she brought me the calendar the next day. It is called- Countdown to My Birth. It’s a nice flippy calendar, so you can put it on a desk and read daily about what your baby is doing.

Good Gracious!
