5 natural ways to overcome pregnancy symptoms

The best parts of pregnancy are almost too numerous to list. Gorgeous hair, long nails, the feeling of that sweet little baby moving around in your belly – all highlights of pregnancy, at least to me. Of course, the negatives are always on your mind, too.

5 thanksgiving pregnancy announcement ideas

Thanksgiving is so close, I can almost smell the turkey now … and the mashed potatoes, and the gravy, and the green bean casserole. (Hey, a pregnant girl has to eat!) Of course, the best thing about Thanksgiving is the time you spend with your family and friends, celebrating the joys of life and the blessings of the year.
