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. by pam

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 by joyce

Total Eclipse of the Heart ~ Bonnie Tyler | EG - I know that people are stronger than the love they have inside their heart. And I know too, that I can always recover from a broken heart, but the process is just too painful that though I know I'll be okay someday, I still become more afraid every time I get close to someone. I hate going through that hurtful moment over again. I just hate it. by mollyahuff

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. by luella

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 by angeline

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. by bette

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. by ammieiscool

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! by sally tb

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.

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!! by kathrine

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. by siofra

A Mother’s Prayer for Her Child By Tina Fey “First, Lord: No tattoos. May neither Chinese symbol for truth nor Winnie-the-Pooh holding the FSU logo stain her tender haunches.    May she be Beautiful but not Damaged, for it’s the Damage that draws the creepy soccer coach’s eye, not the Beauty.    When the Crystal Meth is offered, may she remember the parents who cut her grapes in half And stick with Beer.    Guide her, protect her when crossing the street, stepping onto boats, swimming in the ocean, swimming in pools, walking near pools, standing on the subway platform, crossing 86th Street, stepping off of boats, using mall restrooms, getting on and off escalators, driving on country roads while arguing, leaning on large windows, walking in parking lots, riding Ferris wheels, roller-coasters, log flumes, or anything called “Hell Drop,” “Tower of Torture,” or “The Death Spiral Rock ‘N Zero G Roll featuring Aerosmith,” and standing on any kind of balcony ever, anywhere, at any age.    Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance. Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes And not have to wear high heels. What would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I’m asking You, because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit.    May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers.    Grant her a Rough Patch from twelve to seventeen.Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long, For childhood is short – a Tiger Flower blooming Magenta for one day – And adulthood is long and dry-humping in cars will wait.    O Lord, break the Internet forever, that she may be spared the misspelled invective of her peers And the online marketing campaign for Rape Hostel V: Girls Just Wanna Get Stabbed.    And when she one day turns on me and calls me a Bitch in front of Hollister, Give me the strength, Lord, to yank her directly into a cab in front of her friends, For I will not have that Shit. I will not have it.    And should she choose to be a Mother one day, be my eyes, Lord, that I may see her, lying on a blanket on the floor at 4:50 A.M., all-at-once exhausted, bored, and in love with the little creature whose poop is leaking up its back. “My mother did this for me once,” she will realize as she cleans feces off her baby’s neck. “My mother did this for me.” And the delayed gratitude will wash over her as it does each generation and she will make a Mental Note to call me. And she will forget. But I’ll know, because I peeped it with Your God eyes.    Amen.”    -Tina Fey by rosanna
