Pregnancy is one of the most amazing chapters in any woman’s life. The anticipation of finally seeing and holding your baby, along with experiencing the everyday wonders of carrying a child in your womb, is enough to make a woman giddy with excitement.

Although not without its complications, my own pregnancy journey is one for the books and I can easily say that it is one of the most amazing parts of my story yet. I may have suffered from a mild case of hyperemesis gravidarum during the first part of my second trimester and would just throw up practically anywhere and anytime, but my pregnancy has been very enjoyable when that part was over. I was able to enjoy eating again and share new and invigorating experiences with 10 friends who were also pregnant!

Because I was throwing up a lot, nutrition is something I struggled with during pregnancy. It was such hard work to keep any food in my stomach as I would almost always throw everything out ~ milk, fruits, bread, practically anything ~ and it does not matter what time of day it was. Morning sickness is, in fact, an all-day sickness and it contributed to me weighing even lighter during the first few months of pregnancy.

Nutrition, indeed, plays an essential role in a pregnant woman’s over-all health as well as that of her baby. One of the best ways to ensure a mother’s optimal health during pregnancy is to have a proper and well-balanced diet. Adding potatoes to your pregnancy diet is highly recommended.

Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect to anyone who experiences it.

According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming. So what can you do to prevent it?

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger.

“If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.”
