Trying To Get Pregnant - Spending Too Much On Prenancy Test?
Members Were Sparked
If you are like me, you probably have spend a lot of money on pregnancy test or even ovulation kits. I recently found out that they sell them at the Dollar store for 1.25 CND. I was sceptic at first on their accuracy but a friend recently got a positive pregnancy test from a Dollar Store test.

When pregnant, I drank 1 gallon of water a day. I was heavy when I found out about baby 1, drank around a gallon a day, gained 14 pounds, and then lost 35. Maintained it and got pregnant 18 months later. Drank tons, gained 22, then lost 23. So ladies, when pregnant, that water thing really can work!
When you lose weight, especially if you lose weight quickly, you risk getting saggy skin (just watch a finale of the Biggest Loser.. sad but true).
Instead of risking never being able to wear a sleeveless top (let alone a bikini) because of the excess skin, treat your skin right as you lose. Apply a good lotion (cocoa butter or shea butter is best) at least once a day (twice is better).
While you can't change nature (skin will obviously sag as you age), moisturized skin is pliable skin!
This works the same way that pregnant women apply cocoa butter to prevent stretch marks...
