Need Baby Registry Advice!

I am just getting ready to create a baby registry for baby showers etc. and I don't know what to add to it! There are so many different products and so many brands to choose from. I would love any advice anyone can give me as far as what gifts they used or liked the most, (and what brands they prefer) that would be good to register for. Thanks!

Itchy Rash During 3Rd Trimester

Maybe some of you moms have experienced this with your pregnancies. I usually get better answers from you than I do at the doctors office! I started out with a little ichy spot on my thigh and my OB perscribed some cortizone cream. It helped a little bit at first, but now I am itching terribly on my legs, arms, and belly. It looks like little red bumps.

I called the ob office and the nurse told me to take Benadryl so I could sleep and to see a dermatologist. Well, I must be the only person that does not get sleepy from Benadryl. And as far as seeing a dermatologist, I am in...

Pimples After Pregnancy

A few months after giving birth to my beautiful baby girl, I started having some random breakouts on my face. I knew my hormones were "out-of-whack" so I didn't think much of it. Now, my baby girl is a year old, and my face is getting worse. Not only are the pimples large and inflamed, when they go away they're leaving red marks on my face. I've been using Proactive for 2 weeks, and I've not noticed any changes. Have any of you mom's experienced this? Could it be a hormonal thing, or am I just getting adult acne??? Please Help if you...
