Pregnancy Preparations

I’ve never pointed it out before, but if you’re pregnant, TTCing (TTC= trying to conceive) or about to start TTCing, there are a few pages I put together with the research I’ve done going through the journey myself. That way you don’t have to search out the blog to find needed information.

The sidear has a page, called TTC RESOURCES. It lists ALL the steps we took in preparation for TTCing with links to appropriate posts, as well as some useful items, including THE BEST BOOK you could possibly read before trying to conceive.  Our actual TTC phase didn’t last long. Well, technically, we didn’t even have a TTC phase, since we got pregnant the first month, but I feel that a year of preparations was like spending a year TTCing in terms of research.

The other useful page is called PREGNANCY RESOURCES. You can find a list of harmful herbs , all known teratogens ( substances that cause birth defects), water filters, pregnancy safe skin routine, maternity sleeping bras. I also listed ALL the pregnancy books I’ve read and which ones are a MUST and which ones are a PASS ( Like Bruno says “Nicht Nicht! or Ja! Ja!”)

NEW MOM page and NEW BABY page deals with everything that comes with motherhood and any dilemmas and struggles I dealt with, so that you could commiserate or learn from me. There are great resources there as far as baby gear, mommy products, useful apps, tips an advice. Everything that I have come across and experienced over the years.

And finally, NUTRITION. This page contains all the posts I did as a part of GET FIT GET HEALTHY challenge. This blog is not meant to be about nutrition, but I didn’t want those few things that were written about nutrition to be lost in the maze of this blog’s archives.

This blog was started as a way to record all the things we were going through to prepare to start TTCing. I spent about a year in just preparations, and I didn’t want all the information to be wasted. So the blog was started as a way to give women, who were going through the same phase, all the information I’ve gathered, save them time and headache. And while it morphed into a more personal blog about our journey, I would like to continue putting together all and any useful information I come across in the meantime.

Finally, please feel free to contact me via email (contact {at} everyavenuelife.com) I love getting emails from you guys and will be happy to answer questions or just say hi!

    Congrats on your pregnancy! It’s the most magical time. I am a designer and have a line of maternity clothes. I would love to sponsor a giveaway on your blog. I think it would be a great fit. I have some new designs that are not on my website yet but if you send me your email I could send you some pics. Thank you for your time.
