Birthing positions

With my daughter I was in the most common position of laying on my back and a nurse and my hubby helping hold my legs back.  I was just hearing and reading about how more and more women are giving birth in a variety of positions.  I even know a lady who gave birth standing up since her back labor was so painful she could not get comfortable.  Another lady I know told me that she was on her side and it was really helpful in decreasing her pain.

Here is a great article that list the advantages and disadvantages to each position.  CLICK HERE

I am just going to go with the flow and do what ever feels most comfortable for me.

What way did you give birth?

With all 3 of mine I was induced so not a lot of moving around options for me :( But this time I had horrible back labor. Was able to stay out of bed most of the time which helped. Labored in a rocking chair and walking for most of my labor. When it came to checked of course they wanted me back in bed. But they actually sat me up right away after cause they knew I couldn't stay that way. So they set the bed up as much as they could and then took off the end. It was pretty much like sitting in a chair. They had the stirrups naturally but with the bed set up like an easy chair and 3 pillows behind my back I was pretty much squatting. It was my easiest delivery of all 3 and I think it was due to being almost up right. But when you get there you will know what works for you and at a certain point, you really don't care too much and your body will literally take over!

With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
