A Few Things You Should Know If Your Bleeding After Birth

Seeing more blood down there then usual is perfectly normal for a woman. Freaking out is not necessary and you can hold back the tears. Your body bleeds a little more after birth because the womb is shedding. As it sheds, the lining is being replaced inside your genitals and belly. You are going though your natural body process. There is more things you should know if you choose to know it. View the points below.

Bleeding After Birth Last a Little While

Your unexpecting blood loss will last longer then you expect. For most women, the bleeding lasts for 24 to 36 days after birth. The time is not extremely long, but you might want to get some blood pads for support. You can by the best pads for postpartum bleeding to give you the best overall support. The pads do a good job of holding the blood back and making people not be aware of the smell. That smell can be god awful if you do not wash your legs or wear pads. In addition, the bleeding you experience after birth can last longer then 6 weeks. It is normal and you shouldn’t worry. On the contrary, bleeding in the vaginal area more than 6 weeks deserves medical attention. Make sure to call your doctor soon to figure out why your bleeding more then 6 weeks.

Wear the bleeding pads made for women who just gave birth while you sleep. 24 days is a long time and you will bleed while you sleep on some days. The blood will be allover the sheets and that can be a big deal if you want your friends to think your doing well. Cover the legs up with some pads.

If You Let Out More Than a Pint of Blood in the First 24 Hours Seek Help

Leaking out more than a pint of blood in 24 hours is a sign of postpartum haemorrhage. At first, it is not a big issue. But, it can escalate and cause the insides of genital to damage more than normal. Make sure you see a doctor immediately if you have more then a pint of blood bleeding from your vaginal area. Equally important, you will experience a high loss of energy and might be unable to stand. Get someone to help you see the doctor and call doctor for you. You might not be able to handle this problem on your own.

Reduce Your Risk of Infection

Wash your hands frequently to reduce the risk of infection that comes in contact during the bleeding stage. The bleeding invites a lot of viruses and outside threats. Wash your hands every day. Wash them 3 times a day thoroughly to be safe. The more you wash, the less likely you are to receive something that can cause you to take a trip to the hospital. Wearing best pads for postpartum bleeding helps to. Pads do a good job of keeping your private area contained. The area will also be easier to wash when the day is over. Wear pads to make the bleeding leak less of a issue.

Items You Might Need for a Baby that No One Told You

Ok, it is your first baby and your happy about it. You want your boyfriend to be there in the whole process. Everything you buy needs to benefit the baby. The house needs to be spotless to welcome the baby. All your friends need to be nice or they will get left. Yes, it is very exciting to have a baby. Despite the excitement part, you need a few things to make sure your going to really last the entire baby adventure.

Pack Disposable Underwear

The pregnancy and afterbirth are going to get messy, so buy 50 underwear to support it. You don’t have to buy 50 packs of underwear, but it will help. When you are dealing with the baby, you are going to bleed a lot. This bleeding will mess up a large portion of panties you don’t want to get messed up. That’s a lot of money you don’t want to lose. So, I suggest you buy 50 panties that you don’t care gets bloody so you can make it through the whole baby adventure. Buy cheap panties at goodwill until you stop having babies. Buying the best postpartum undrerwear is also good. People will think you are being cheap while pregnant. But, the baby is the most important thing of your life now. You must do everything to keep it safe and you safe to take care of it.

Concerned with bleeding, wear some postpartum underwear. They are not just underwear. I thought they were too until I tried them on. They keep all the blood tucked inside. Every time you have a accident, you keep the blood inside and it never falls. Wear the best postpartum underwear to have higher life use. The underwear are fully disposable. Don’t concerned with pregnancy bleeding by wearing postpartum underwear.

Peri Bottle Spray for Irritated Vagina Area

Vagina can become irritated from time to time during birth. This can also happen after birth. Irritations will come from nowhere. The legs will catch something that just won’t go away. You will be tempted to scratch more often then I am willing to say publicly. Buy some peri bottle spray to keep the irritations under control. Make them seem like little flies. The spray stops scratches and helps you heal pains caused from birth. You will get the whole package when using peri bottle spray.

Drink Plenty of Caffeine to Get Rid of Headaches

The headaches will be there during your child adventure. You will get many headaches during the whole affair. Life will not stop happening. You will get a headache for this and a headache for a argument that makes no sense. Your body will cause you to have headaches for no reason. The baby will cry in the middle of night. Bills will get bigger for some reason. Consume coffee and make it your best friend. Caffeine has a way to keep the headaches down. Reduce the stress you feel from life sucking you. You will find your brain again and life becomes easier to deal with. Drink coffee and remember to stock up.

gone to yoga

It’s a busy time of the year but please don’t sacrifice taking care of your body. It’s the only one you have. Get some type of exercise in. For me, it’s yoga. My body feels so much more healthy and alive when I get into every niche and cranny. I’m off to class. Have I convinced you too? :-)

i used to be a bitch

It was 2002.  I was living in the City of Angels, trying to make it on my own.  My first stab at a career had ended.  Five years in the practice of law was all I could take.  I tried… Believe me, I tried. 

I started as a corporate Bankruptcy attorney and after two years of reorganizing Carolco Pictures (do you remember them? they did the Terminator and many more), I found myself intrigued with the world of Entertainment.  It’s Funny – most people relocate to Los Angeles to be involved in that world.  I had been there for 7 years already and it had taken me that long to bite. I’m glad I did.

It taught me a great lesson which I’m still in the process of implementing.

 

I took a job at Jersey Films. Not a good move, or so I thought at the time.  Here I had been thinking I was “moving up” on the career ladder and instead, I became a glorified assistant to an assistant.  The job sucked.,  AND I had taken a not so small pay cut for it.  Played the cards, lost the hand.  I moved on.

Next, I landed at E-Entertainment.  This job may actually have been worse.  Silly me.  I thought I had been hired as a L-A-W-Y-E-R who graduated cum laude from a prestigious school.  I guess not.  I found myself doing the same grunt work I had been doing 12 years earlier without a college degree or any prior work experience.

The mentality in Hollywood is that people are dying to be a part of their glamorous world and will basically work for minimum wage no matter how qualified they are.

Not me.

I was miserable.  Resentful.  Self-serving. I thought I deserved better. I was smart, educated and reliable.  So then why did I feel like a bottom sucking, worthless piece shit? To top it all off-not surprisingly- my first marriage was falling apart.

We always have a choice.  We can either tune in to the universe and accept the gifts it offers to us, no matter how disguised they may seem at the time, or we can fight and lose the battle.  I had no idea the universe had my back at the time so I fought it every step of the way.

I was a TOTAL BITCH!

Not on purpose, of course.  I really had no idea how poorly I was behaving…   But everyone else around me did.  No one liked me besides my family and my closest friends.   Honestly, I wonder now if they really liked me at the time, or were just putting up with me because they thought they had to.

So now here I was with no job at all, no husband, living in this crazy, intense city where everyone was out for himself, biting to survive.

At some point, I stopped sleeping.  Well-not completely.  I’d go to bed every night around 10pm and without fail, I was up at 1am.  It actually became a game I had with myself. I’d open my eyes, guess the time was 1:03am or 1:07am, look at the clock and smile that I could be that on track.  I’d be up until 4:00am, fall back asleep for an hour or two and then my blaring alarm would jolt me up again.  Perfect.  Exhausted and bitchy…  What a great combination to start the day.

At some point I scheduled an appointment with my doctor so I could beg for something to keep me asleep at night.  He knew me quite well. I had been there several times over the past few years with various maladies.  You name it.  Sinus infections, IBS symptoms, the flu.  If it came around, I got it.  It’s no wonder.

My body was a mess.  Undernourished in every sense of the word.  Overstimulated.  Completely stressed out.

Not that there is really any excuse to act like self-deserving, self-centered, thoughtless bitch, but when your body is not getting the nourishment it needs, how can you possibly give back positive, loving light?

I’d sit in that waiting room, staring at my watch, wondering how anyone could have the audacity to keep me waiting so long.  Didn’t he know I had places to go and people to see too? My time was just as important as his.  I made that perfectly clear to the assistant behind the desk.

Finally, I was seen and walked out with what I needed!    I was looking forward to sleeping through the night! But I was in for a surprise… It was more than the night I slept through.  I couldn’t drag myself out of bed after 14 or 15 hours.  My body was limp…  I had no energy.  No life.  No personality.  Not even my bitchy one.  I was sucked dry.

I thought I’d adjust to the medication but it continued for weeks.  My life wasn’t getting better.  It was getting worse. I was falling into emptiness.

I called up my doctor and asked him what he had given me.  I told him I could not function.  You know what I found out?  He had given me medication for a schizophrenic.  He thought I had a personality disorder!

Yes, I was unhappy.  Yes, I was a bitch.  But… the only personality disorder I had was that I had not yet tapped into my inner self.  I could not feel my heart.  I was not being nourished by the “primary foods” in my life that included so much more than I was actually putting in my mouth.

I needed love.  I needed guidance. I needed support. I needed compassion. I needed a nurturing relationship.  I needed a career I loved. 

Once I realized that, I took the steps I needed to make it all happen.

It’s taken me years to walk along the path I’ve been heading,  and I’m not saying I’m perfect.  God knows I’m far from perfect.  B Now, I am finally able to look at my destiny differently.  I will never again be “stuck” in a life I don’t want to be living.  Now I have a right to be happy.  I am allowed to write the fairytale I want my life to look like.  It’s up to me to create it.  No one is going to make my dreams come true, other than myself.  I know that if I send positive light out into the universe it will come back to me tenfold.

Best of all, when I lay my head down on my pillow at night, I can actually sleep through the night.

avocado salsa you will die for

My friend, Kelly, loves to cook and bake, and is always trying to find the best recipes for everything.

She loves avocados, probably more than I do, which is hard to believe!

I know you will absolutely love what I now call her Kelly’s Famous Avocado Salsa.

 

Ingredients:

3 Hass Avocado’s (ripe)

1 box of Organic Cherry Tomatoes

1/2 Red Onion

A handful of Cilantro

Pinch of Sea Salt

2 Organic Limes

doTERRA essential lime oil

doTERRA essential cilantro oil

We  like to use doTERRA lime essential oil in the salsa for added richness. Depending on the strength of the lime taste, add 3 drops of doTERRA lime essential oil and 2 drops of doTERRA cilantro essential oil, mixe then taste. You be the judge in this category on what you prefer. I am a huge lime lover so add add both fresh limes (for the juice) and essential oil for the power and essence of the entire plant.

Instructions:

Cut the avocado into big chunks and place into a bowl. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Dice red onion into small pieces, and dice up cilantro. Add essential oil and the pinch of salt and lightly mix. You want the salsa to be chunky and fresh, not mushed together to where you can’t tell what’s from what like guacamole.

If you would like to make your own homemade chips, buy whole corn tortillas and cut them into four quarters. Submerge the individual pieces into hot oil canola oil and fry until crispy. You want the tortillas to be crispy so that you can eat them like chips!

This is a great snack or party appetizer.  I’d love to hear how it turned out for you.  Please leave a comment in the box below.

I know your friends are going to love this recipe too so please spread the word on FB, Pinterest and Twitter!

it’s time to get OUT OF HERE!

When was the last time you just booked a ticket, didn’t think twice and did something for you?

In the Western world our idea of Holiday is the holidays appointed on our calenders. If you’re lucky you take a vacation once a year and that’s about as much time as you truthfully take for yourself.

What if you were to live your life by the seat of your pants and for the experience?

 

Not just to pay the bills?

What if you sat down and wrote out your life (with nothing holding you back) and you shifted your priorities.

What do you envision your happiness looking like?

Too many of us live to work instead of living to live.  And then then they end up miserable.

So what do you say?  Are you down on making a list?  Can you jot down what you really want to and make them a priority?

Pack your bags, your life is waiting!

What do you have to lose, but another week, doing the same old sh*t. Spice it up folks, and tell me what you did!  I’d love to hear your comments in the box below.

If you love this post, you better spread the love around.  All you have to do is repost or pin via Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
