Pregnancy Information and Tips
Being pregnant brings many changes to a woman’s body. Hormonal changes, physical changes and mental changes affect you and those around you.
Understanding what is happening to both your body and your baby’s development during each stage of pregnancy helps you know what to expect.
Taking care of yourself is important during this time: getting enough sleep, eating right, exercising moderately and avoiding drugs and alcohol will all contribute to a healthy pregnancy.

Your Baby’s Nursery
Setting up your baby’s nursery can be a lot of fun. It can also be rather confusing when you start seeing all the options that you have.
First, pick a style – contemporary, classic, etc. Since a crib is the largest item in the room – start with that and find one that you like.
From there, you may want matching furniture – like a dresser, changing table and rocker/glider. Or you may prefer an eclectic approach.
Whichever you choose, find the style that you like!
Decide colors next. You may want bold, primary colors or soft, neutral colors or the classic pink or blue.
Knowing this will help you determine the color of curtains, bedding, pictures on the walls, lamps, etc.

When it comes to babies, there is an abundance of things to buy for them.
Some are necessary like a crib, some are nice to have like a baby swing and some are extra items that make life easier, but are not necessary to have like a bouncy seat.
What do you need? How do you know which ones are the best?

Baby Shower and Baby Gift Ideas
When you plan a baby shower, you want it to be fun for everyone.
While you can choose a specific decorating theme like Dinasaurs, Safari, Western, Sports, Baby Animals, Farm Animals, princesses etc., sometimes just keeping it simple with pink or blue or neutral colors can be just as nice and a whole lot easier.
Keep in mind the mom-to-be’s personality – after all, the shower really is for her.
Once you know your theme, then you can decide on your decorations, the cake, the favors, the invitations, games, etc. Have fun with it.
It is best to have as much done as possible beforehand. Get a good schedule together so you are not panicking at the last minute. This way you can enjoy the shower along with everyone else.
As far as baby gifts go, there is so much to choose from. If the mom-to-be is going to be using disposable diapers, a few packages of them can be really helpful. Bigger items are always a blessing – baby swings, bouncers, high chairs, pac-n-plays, car seats and strollers. Basic clothing for baby is always necessary and appreciated.
If you are looking for something more unique – look for a personalized gift or a handmade item.
