For the last few days I’ve had this annoying pain in my bladder area. I thought it was due to my period but now my period is gone and this annoying pain still continues. I’m trying to figure out what to do, go to the ER, to an Urgent Care Clinic (which closes @ 3pm today) or do nothing.  I was looking online and it might me a UTI or a bladder infection.   I just don’t know what to do. I’m drinking cranberry juice at the moment and when I finish I should take a shower and make a decision.


Adoption. It’s something that my husband and I have talked about if it happens that we can not conceive. I did some checking and the adoption process isn’t cheap. I think the government should have some program to help families that want to adopt and change the life of a child.  November is National Adoption month and here is the website for more information ChildWelfare.Gov/adoption

November is National Adoption month, a month set aside to raise awareness about the adoption of children and youth from foster care. This year’s theme,”You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent,” includes a more focused effort that reaches out to the African American community and builds on the Ad Council’s new public service announcement (PSA) campaign of the Children’s Bureau, the Adoption Exchange Association, and AdoptUsKids.

I was in a meeting the other day that said that pregnant women with the swine flu will have the most difficult time getting better. So my questions is can you get either the flu vaccine or the swine flu vaccine while pregnant? I would be afraid to put anything into my body after trying for months to conceive and then God forbid something going wrong but according to Howard Lewine, M.D. it’s advised for women trying to get pregnant or already pregnant to received either vaccine.

Pregnant women should get the H1N1 flu shot and the seasonal flu shot for several reasons:

  • They can protect infants who cannot receive vaccination. The mother can pass protective antibodies to her fetus. They may help protect the baby after it’s born.
  • If you do get the flu, you have a higher than average risk of getting pneumonia. Pneumonia lowers your blood oxygen level. This means your fetus may not receive the oxygen needed for normal development.
  • Having the flu in pregnancy increases your risk of a miscarriage or giving birth too early.
  • Women who have a fever during early pregnancy are more likely to deliver a baby with a neural tube defect, such as spina bifida.

As for myself I have not taken the flu vaccine or the H1N1 vaccine.

For all the moms, mom to be and all the women in between the month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  So don’t forget to do self breast examinations.  There is a Breast Cancer Site that helps women get a free mammogram exam. All you have to do is click (daily would be ideal) and sponsors pay for the exam.  If you would like to give a little more just shop their store.  Site is called, Click to Give.

Side Note: You can lower your risk of developing breast cancer by breastfeeding your baby. And if your baby is a girl, her risk can also be reduced.
