.I know this works for everyone but gosh I measure 3 times and still get it wrong. Maybe I need a tutor or someone to invent an automatic
Neural tube defects: INCREASED AFP, normal hCG and DECREASED estradiol. 2-3% of all AFP are high, but only 10% show a NTD. Seems like I should know that AFP that is >2.5 times MOM is present in 80% of NTD. If DM mom, just need >2. If twins, need >4.5! Other things a/w increase: renal, teratoma, hygromas, hydrops, turner, bowel obstxn, twins, wrong age, fetal demise, FMH.
You know what works best for me when I feel bad? When someone has no idea what I'm going through and tells me to get over it.
Good behavior chart: I find this is the best and most effective way to recognize my girls for good behavior or doing required chores. Any time a catch them using manners, getting ready for bed without asking, being nice to each other, feeding animals etc. I drop a bead in their jar. They can hear the bead if I drop it from a distance so they know instantly that someone did something right. They get $3 when the jar is full. It works wonders
Everyone is Someone. I try to think about this quote when I see strangers because it's so easy to minimize people we don't know. Remember, everyone is and was loved by other people. They have family and friends and we need to always try to show respect, kindness, and understanding towards them even if we don't know them.
Sure the boys at work would love this!!Fried Ice Cream Dessert: "I came across this recipe...It looked easy enough so I made it one weekend. OH...MY...GOSH!!! It tastes JUST like the fried ice cream you'd get at the restaurant. I've made it for work friends, family get-togethers, etc. It will be the dish that everyone wants you to bring to everything - and bring a copy of the recipe because otherwise you'll be repeating it 75 times."~blogger

Maybe I care too much, but it's only because I believe that everyone deserves to be loved fiercely and passionately, and I refuse to be the person who gives up on someone who needs it the most. Why? some people might ask; it's because I know what that feels like and no one should ever feel that way.
I have had this encounter a couple of times and trying to explain in the moment while helping calm your child never works. As parents of autistic children, we have all heard someone tell us, "That can't be true." When we describe some of the things that our children go through. There is no time trying to make someone a believer or understand what is happening when you need to focus on your child.
An abdominal workout from Pilates boot camp, my tummy hurts just looking at it, I bet it works too. I figure it’s worth a shot, some of you try it with me and let me know the results. Almost everyone I know wants to get rid of “baby tummy” or a “beer belly,” these exercises should fix that!
"Poisonous Beauties IV: Poison Ivy" The fourth installment in my Poisonous Beauties series - a series of works featuring portraits of faery creatures and various poisonous plants! #4 in this series of course features the Poison Ivy plant! I've never suffered negative effects from poison ivy, but I know folks who have and it can be awful! Still lovely though - and so is this pretty fairy girl - maybe a little too lovely to trust.... My
If you've been exposed to the stomach flu drink 3 glasses of 100% grape juice a day for 3 days. It changes the acidity in your stomach. During the winter months, as maintenance, I drink a half a glass everyday and do the same for my kids. I tell everyone I know to do this...this really works!! Helps UTI's and canker sores also!
OH MY GOOOODNESSSS......HOW FITTING FOR SOMEONE I KNOW!!! CHANGE YOUR MEDS... BUY A JOURNAL.. AND GET OFF FACEBOOK!!! NOBODY GIVES A FLYING FCK ABOUT YOUR DRAMA!! MAYBE IF YOU SPENT HALF THE TIME AND ENERGY ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND KIDS AS YOU DO ON POSTING YOUR DRAMA ON THE INTERNET YOU WOULDNT BE SO MISERABLE!!!!!
Another pinner said: I will need to try this... Swarms of Mosquitoes on my patio led me to an old home remedy - Did you know that chopped up garlic makes mosquitoes disappear? I buy minced, dried garlic at local Fiesta grocery stores and sprinkle it around on my patio. I have to stand back as I am using it - mosquitoes will literally swarm out of your plants and bushes to get away from the smell. Works like a charm!!
Vegetarian forms of protein. It drives me crazy when people worry about me not getting enough protein from being a vegetarian (I do still eat seafood), but the truth is that the SAD (standard American diet) is OVERLOADED with protein!! Multiply your weight times .36 and that's how many grams of protein you need. I usually have 1/3 of my daily amount by breakfast, alone.
