Winnie The Pooh and Tinker Bell is the theme on our baby's room. I find it so cute and very colorful for our baby's eyes and for entertainment as well. We bought a bunch of Winnie the pooh stickers and tinker bell as well. The Winnie the pooh stickers will go to the walls of the room and the tinker bell stickers will go in the ceiling. We can't wait to get the room decorated and things in place before I deliver Adelie Mae.

What do you feel when you see a rat? Scream, run or do you just totally ignore it? If it's me, I would definitely scream and at the same time I will run away. Rats are so annoying and they do not belong in the house, especially my house. To me, if a rat is living in my house, it must be because my house is dirty or because I live in the country. Either way my family is in danger. We all know that rats carry different diseases. Lately, I have been disturbed and alarmed by noises that I have heard coming from the attic. I was not sure what they were, til asked dad and he said that they were rats. Oh my God! I was getting goose bumps and having a hard time trying not to worry about it. I am pregnant right now and as a soon to be mom, I want to keep our place clean and safe for the coming baby and knowing that there are rats in the attic, it worries me and I am unsure of what to do about it. I know problems like this are not hard to solve with the help of some experts. And one of those experts is, Victor® Sonic PestChaser® PRO. They have the high tech tools to solve your problem with rats and mice. This is an ultrasonic repellent. Now you asked what this is, on how ultrasonic repellents work ? It is a highly effective method of controlling rats and mice. It creates a high frequency sound wave that drive rodents away from your home. Wow I have never heard one of this before and I am glad that they have created a very innovative tool in getting rid of rats and mice. Now I am a bit calm and more confident that we can solve this problem in our house before our baby girl is born. This is not just for her safety but for the rest of us as well. So make sure to rodent proof your home before it's too late.

It was known as "the War to end all Wars". The first world war is considered today as the event which has had the greatest social and political impact in the annals of human history. It has been estimated that more than 61.5 million soldiers from all nations took part in the war, of which 8.5 million were killed, 12.5 million received recoverable injuries, and 7 million were permanently injured. The United States, which entered the war late, suffered among the fewest losses, at approximately 116,000. Nevertheless, the impact the war had upon Americans was great. President Wilson, who boasted that he would keep the United States out of the war, shocked the country with his request for war. November 11, 1918 marked the official end of the war. One year later, President Wilson proclaimed November 11, 1919, as "Armistice Day". It was the first nationwide commemoration of the war. On November 11, 1920, England laid to rest an unknown soldier in Westminster Abbey, a way to commemorate their losses in the war. France had carried a similar act the same year at the Arc de Triomphe. On November 11, 1921, the United States followed-up...Read More

A pregnant woman who suspects that she might have swine flu should call or see her doctor immediately. In fact the CDC even advises that pregnant women should call their doctor if they've been in close contact with anyone who has swine flu.
Facts about Swine Flu in Pregnant Women
- Up until mid-October 2009, 6% of swine flu related deaths in the US have been in pregnant women.
- Pregnant women have also been hospitalized more as a result of swine flu compared to the general population.
- Pregnant women given seasonal flu shots in a recent study passed the positive effects of immunization to their unborn child, significantly reducing flu sickness in babies younger than 6 months.
- The new H1N1 vaccine for pregnant women is currently undergoing trials to determine its safety. So far flu shots have not been deemed harmful for pregnant women.
Why are Pregnant Women at Higher Risk from Swine Flu?
Pregnant women are a high-risk group for swine flu complications because the illness may cause complications such as pneumonia and premature labor. A woman's immune system may be somewhat weakened during pregnancy, making her more susceptible to illness in general. And anything that causes a pregnant woman distress may ultimately cause fetal distress as well.
How Can Pregnant Women Prevent Getting Swine Flu?
The precautions for pregnant women are the same as for the rest of the population. The top things to do for prevention are:
- Regularly and thoroughly wash hands
- Avoid contact with people infected with swine flu
- Get a flu shot
Are Swine Flu Vaccinations Safe for Pregnant Women?
The first step in swine flu prevention is protection. Pregnant women can significantly reduce their chances of contracting swine flu by getting an annual flu shot. Flu shots for the current strain of the H1N1 flu virus are expected to be available by October 2009 for the flu season lasting through February 2010.
Pregnant women should consult with their doctor to schedule a flu shot as soon as one becomes available in their region. The CDC advises pregnant women to get two vaccinations: a seasonal flu shot combined with the H1N1 (swine flu causing) flu shot. Taken together they are more effective in protecting pregnant women and their fetus from flu-like illness. Both flu shots are regarded as safe for pregnant women to take.
What Should Pregnant Women Do if They Have Swine Flu?
The best course of action for an infected pregnant woman is to stay at home, avoid infecting others, and call or see her doctor right away. The doctor will most likely put her on anti-viral medication such as Tamiflu or Relenza. If she has a fever, she can take acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol). A typical course of anti-viral medication runs for 5 days and can be taken anytime during pregnancy. It has not shown to have any harmful effects on the growing fetus.

While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):
1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).
2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).
3. *Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.
4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. *Not everybody may be good at using a Neti pot, but *blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton swabs dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.*
5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C. *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.
6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.
