Diaper Bag Checklist Printable

I remember being a new Mom. S.T.R.E.S.S.F.U.L. Nothing I was told to do worked. Everything I tried failed. My baby wouldn’t sleep on her own. She wouldn’t eat on a schedule. She was a baby and she needed attention ALL – THE – TIME! Me? I was a WRECK! I couldn’t remember to tie my shoes. It took me about a month to figure everything out, including to make lists. I had lists everywhere, which drove me crazy on its own because I like tidiness. But I had to compromise, and my new baby’s needs were probably more important than my desire for a tidy home… I suppose. Anyway, one of the lists I made was a diaper bag checklist. I laminated it and used a dry erase marker on it each time I had to leave the house. It was really helpful for me and just maybe it will help you too. I hope you enjoy!

Having an HG Pregnancy, My Story

I’m currently pregnant with my 2nd daughter. During both pregnancies I’ve experienced Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG). I’ve actually been marginally better in some ways this time, worse in others, but at 30 years old this is something I have no desire to go through again. This will be our last baby. Someone is getting fixed after this… lol.

The Facts about Hyperemesis Gravidarum

I’m going to start off with some basic facts about HG for those who have no idea what I’m talking about.

  • Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is a pregnancy related illness that effects less than 2% of women. It causes severe nausea and vomiting, sometimes almost contently which can lead to problems like dehydration and weight loss.
  • Those with HG tend to be sick much longer than the normal 12 weeks.
  • It typically starts between 4 and 6 weeks of pregnancy and may be at it’s worst between 9 and 12 weeks. In some women it lasts for the duration of their pregnancy.
  • It’s not known what causes it and their are no known cures. It’s believed to be related to rise in hormone levels.
  • Complications can effect both Mom and Baby and can include slowed metabolism, heartburn, dehydration, constipation, kidney shut down, low electrolytes, dizziness and weakness, malnutrition to muscles causing severe weakness and requiring bed rest, an over production of saliva which can cause the nausea to worsen, low baby birth weight and even premature birth.
  • Treatments include medications, IV fluids, tube feeding and IV feeding.
  • It’s believed that those with motion sickness, those expecting 2+ babies abd those with a family history of HG are more likely to get it.

Year End Tax Preparation Printables

I know this is March and it’s a little late on the Tax Prep front but since I’m JUST now getting to my own tax prep for last year I have to hope I’m not the only slacker on the internet.

Since my husband is Military we have to keep receipts for all of his haircuts, clothing purchases for work outside of the clothing allowance, even having a cell phone is required so we can deduct his part of the cell phone. Then I have my little handmade baby item sewing business so all of my home office space is deductible as well as my half of the cell phone since it’s my primary work phone, our internet, partial utilities, etc… IT’S A LOT TO REMEMBER!

I’ve put together a set of 4 printables that should help anyone, with or without a home business, get ready for their taxes. It’s full of worksheets and checklists so you don’t forget a thing. The download is located at the end of the post.
