How Long is the Egg Donation Process

Are you ready to expand your family and worried about your fertility?  There are many women out there that have problems conceiving due complications from conditions PCOS, endometriosis and age. Have you thought about using donated eggs?  If you are ready to make the step to expand your family you are probably wondering how long the egg donation process is and now is your chance to learn more about the egg donation process.  On average women are born with about a million eggs, however, if they do end up with reproductive problems or are over 40 years of age they often cannot conceive with their own eggs.  There really aren't many solutions for a woman who wants to become pregnant and experience being pregnant when there are underlying conditions.  One great solution is to use donor eggs. The use of donor eggs can improve your chances of pregnancy. Some couples cannot be helped through procedures such as in vitro fertilization and may want to consider using donor eggs. How long is the egg donation process?  My Egg Bank provides patients access to the largest inventory of frozen donor eggs in the world.  With the diverse database of egg donors, this eliminates the 6-9 month matching wait associated with other egg donation programs.
When you donate to My Egg Bank there is no matching delay which means the donor cycle can start immediately.  The cycle is planned strictly around your schedule and no recipient cycle coordination is required. This can help ease any stress usually associated with other donor banks.  With other donor banks once a match has been made, a traditional donor cycle takes approximately six weeks (from first injection to the pregnancy test). Frozen donor cycles through the Reproductive Biology Egg Bank take about four weeks to complete.  If you are ready to expand your family and have run into a road block help knock it down with My Egg Bank.

The Juppy Baby Walker Review and Giveaway

The Juppy Momentum is simple, safe and affordable method of teaching your baby to walk.  The Juppy baby walker will not only help babies who are not yet strong enough to walk alone, but will also help parents from becoming sore while teaching.  This is the perfect product to help your baby build confidence and assist them with their balance.  No more hunching over while teaching. 

I was really excited when I found out I would get to review the Juppy because with my first son I had a lot of back problems.  So now with my second son who is learning to walk I don’t have to worry about hunching over and can save my back muscles. One thing I liked most about the Juppy is that it allowed my baby to remain hands free while learning to walk, so he was learning to support himself and use his own body to catch his balance. This is the perfect walking tool and I really like that it is doctor approved and parent preferred.  My son still drools quite a bit so it is nice that I can easily throw the Juppy in the washing machine.  It’s also very compact and fits right into the diaper bag so we can easily bring it wherever we go. The fabric is great quality and it is built for safety, even featuring two Velcro straps that overlap on the back.  The Juppy can also be personalized; it’s so cute seeing my sons name on the front of his Juppy!

Save your Wallet and Waistline with this Easy Tip

Have you ever noticed that when you buy your produce or vegetables that they sometimes go to waste during the week.  Sometimes we're just to busy and look for snacks or food that is readily available.  Here's a great tip to ensure you're not wasting food and how to improve healthy snacking.  First you will need a few good reusable plastic containers (preferably small ones).  After you come home from the grocery store take an extra 20 mins to wash, chop and separate all of your fruits and vegetables.

Here is an example from our last grocery trip.

  • I rinsed and plucked off all our grapes and put them all in a small container
  • I rinsed all our blueberries and put them in small containers
  • I sectioned out individual proportions of our sweet potato chips (salt free) and put them in baggies
  • I sliced up some mango and put them in small containers
  • I sectioned out individual proportions of spinach and put in a container and measured out one serving of salad dressing to accompany the spinach.
  • I do the same thing with leftovers, always measure out individual proportions and store in the refrigerator.

This has been a huge help in our household.  Everyone (including my4 year old) can go to the fridge and easily grab out a healthy snack.  My husband and I have the perfect size servings to pack in our lunches.  Everybody is happy and healthy and we are not wasting anymore food because it is all ready to go during the week! 

What tips do you have to keep your family healthy?

Dial Coconut Water Body Wash Review & Giveaway

There are so many different body washes on the market and finding the right one can be difficult. Like most women I want my body wash to provide me with hydrated beautiful looking skin that also smells nice too. My skin (especially during the winter in the Midwest) is very dry and sensitive, so I need a product that moisturizes. I was so excited when I found out I would get to review Dials new Ultra Fresh Hydration Coconut Water body wash. My skin has really been suffering this winter from dryness and from hormone fluctuations after having baby. I’ve tried a few different body washes, soaps and lotions to combat my dry skin. I was pleasantly surprised after I used the new Dial hydrating body wash. My skin felt very smooth after I rinsed it off, which wasn’t happening with bar soaps. I could tell right away that I would not need to pile on tons of lotion after my shower because my skin already felt moisturized. 

Another feature of my body wash that is important to me, besides the obvious of cleaning and moisturizing, is to smell great! What I love about the coconut body wash is that it left me smelling so good I felt like I was on a Hawaiian vacation every time I got a wiff of myself. It was like a wonderful 5 second escape (from my daily routine of changing diapers, feeding, cleaning and playing with the kids). If you’re searching for a great new moisturizing body wash you have to give Dial coconut wash a try. You won’t be disappointed (unless you dislike coconut)!

Meatloaf Muffins with Icing

It has been coming increasingly difficult to get my 4 year old to try new things.  Also, it has been hard to fit in all his servings of vegetables during the day.  I continue to try to make old recipes new and enticing for my little one.  I believe that if you can make foods fun kids will try anything (from my experience).  My sons favorite snack is muffins, so I decided to turn our meatloaf dinner into meatloaf muffins with icing.

Here's how we created our very own healthy meatloaf muffins with icing.

1lb meat (any meat you usually use for meatloaf; ground beef, ground sirloin or ground turkey)
Meatloaf seasonings
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
2 handfulls of spinach
1/2 onion
1 egg
1 cup of breadcrumbs
ketchup as needed


 1. First put carrots, celery, onion and spinach in the food processor (or chop finely).

2. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix until blended (don't over mix). I added about 1 TBSP of ketchup to the mixture.
3.  Take an ice cream scoop and scoop out mixture into your muffin pan.
4.  Once muffin pan is full allow your child to "ice" the muffins with a little extra ketchup and then place in the oven at 450 for about 20 minutes.

5.  Let them cool and enjoy!

Depending on what treat your child likes, you can call these meatloaf cupcakes.  Even better you could flatten them out a little and layer two discs and call it a mini meatloaf cake with icing.  What special meals do you make for your kids?
