Do you think that the good books for children have to be of the kind that adults could read and enjoy them too? I read this thought in a magazine and support it of course with all my heart. If you think for a while you'll see that many (or most) of the books for children have much more wisdom than all the soap operas in the wrold for example... If anyone read Harry Potter (a children's book which many adults like too) they couldn't disagree in any of J.K. Rowling's books one could find something to think about...
Pregnant woman are not getting enough vitamin D, according to new research.
While taking prenatal vitamins does raise vitamin D levels in mothers-to-be, the study suggested higher doses are needed for many women.
Study author Professor Adit Ginde, from the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, said: 'We already know vitamin D is important for bone health of the mother and infant, but we are just starting to scratch the surface about the many potential health benefits of vitamin D during pregnancy.'
I made an eye-opening discovery when searching for images for Parent Alliance®. What I was looking for were photos that showed a connected relationship between parents after babies arrive. What I found was picture after picture of couples separated by children, gazing at the camera, or looking at or embracing kids, with no visible bond with each other.
I got my blood taken today, we'll find out the results tomorrow. If we receive good news we're going to be able to go away for the weekend, something we never do just the two of us. If the news is negative, well...we'll still try to go somewhere for at least a day and a half but chances are the first appointment of the next round will most likely fall on either Saturday or Sunday so that kind of throws a wrench into our plans.
On another note, we got a Wii this weekend! Very exciting news indeed. We decided to get one a couple of weeks ago and haven't been able to find one anywhere. I had no idea they were so hard to get your hands on. I guess there just aren't enough being manufactured for stores to order enough to keep their shelves stocked. Finally I got a definite answer from a guy at one store of when they'd be in so I was one of 3 people waiting outside the doors at opening time. Success!!!
So, we of course played the Wii most of the day yesterday and boy did we wake up sore this morning! The sports games are great (even though they scored me with an athletic age of 80!!!!! *sigh* I'll have to work on that)! I also picked up Zelda and Mario Party. Mario Party I got on my sister's recommendation and well...so far, not so great but I'm willing to give it another shot. There seems to be a bunch of different things you can play so I'm going to try to go through it all and see if maybe it's just that we made some poor selections.
Zelda looks pretty good, although by the time we got to that I was so exhausted that I just watched while my partner played.
Why is is so hard to find and egg donor? Are we to picky? We would love to find and intelligent, fun, athletic, and healthy donor. Yet every profile we have read just does not seem to be the right fit for us. Are we being unreasonable? I mean this is going to be our child, we don't want perfection, just someone that we feel is a perfect fit for us. Does this seem to unreasonable?
Egg donation is such a vital role in the industry and in mankind. It is a way to contribute directly to the human race and ensure growth of families. Woman aged between 18 and 34 should consider becoming an egg donor for all the appropriate reasons.
Several people are really in dire straits and need for a child. For many reasons beyong their control, this natural ability to conceive is no longer a feasable and viable option unless they utlilise the assistance of precious egg donors.

I wanted to bring attention to a HIGHLY debatable comment made in the study ("Experiences of offspring searching for and contacting their donor siblings and donor" RBM Online, 18 April 2010
http://www.ivf.net/ivf/experiences_of_offspring_searching_for_and_contac...) regarding the dissimilarities between adoption and 'donor conception'.
