Get Set for Pregnancy: Prepare Your Body

Hey Mom!

If you get pregnant while taking birth control pills, don't worry that they will affect the health of your baby. Babies born to moms who were taking oral contraceptives at the time of conception are at no higher risk for birth defects than any other babies.

Like any other system in your body, the reproductive system needs to be in good shape to work properly. So before you plunge into pregnancy, take some time to get into top form.

Whenever I get ready to take my son out to dinner, there are two things I make sure of. One is that he has a small toy or two to carry, and the other is that my phone is charged.

Kids Say the Funniest Things!

"In church, my two-year-old and I were sitting toward the front, close to the Christmas tree. The tree was decorated with Chrismons, symbolic of the Christmas story.

But your child's individual nature plays much more of a role in determining how much she will sleep. In looking at the table, keep in mind that the average takes account of individuals at both extremes.
