My experience with YALMEH Glorify Vitamin C Moisturizing Lotion Net, 15g ☆Face - #Lotion

Have a smoother skin is what I've always wanted to have no matter what. I like to have a non-dry skin, especially when colder weather arrives, irritates me if I do feel it at the same time, it is itchy that I wanted to prevent. Since, I love to scratch and I can't resist scratching, I always find a great method to seek an option that would help me with the predicament I have with my skin. 

I will be reviewing about a 15g YALMEH Glorify Vitamin C Moisturizing Lotion Net today and this would be my first time to use this product. The packing is neat, I received the product along with the other Yalmeh product in a bubble wrap envelope. I believe that the timeframe of the shipment is also just about right. No damage, no tear and leakage so I am good with it.

Now, trying new product for me is a very challenging. As I've always mentioned in my previous post that I'm always cautious whenever a new product to try. I'm always keen with what's the product's ingredient and how it can help me.

The product is made in the USA. I've noticed that most of the ingredients are organic, containing no chemicals in the ingredients. When I opened the product, the cream does have a pleasant smell that goes away after you apply it on your skin. It dries fast and with no greasy feeling. Something, I'm always seeking further with moisturizers, no icky feeling after the application.

Overall, my experience with Glorify Vitamic C Moisturizing lotion of Yalmeh is wonderful. I am happy and satisfied that I have tried it, now I'll be more confident on my daily routine knowing that I'll have a smoother and non-dry skin.

FREE Popper Stoppers for Pregnancy Review - #missoopspopperstoppers

Being pregnant for me is one of the most wonderful things that ever happened in my life. I know that I am growing the love child, we have and sooner or later we will be able to hold him/her in our arms. But before that happens, a woman has to go through changes with their body from the conception to labor and then delivery.

One changes of the body is the growing belly as the growing fetus has to have more room to grow. Also the new and different ways can be overwhelming for a first time mother, however, if this is your 2nd, 3rd, and so on child, we tend to be more pro and knows what are the changes in our body. 
And then, we would not worry about this because there will be a lot of help from experts as well as things we can do in order to help us understand about the changes. For instance, if you have a problem about your belly button sticking out because you are on your last trimester of pregnancy, then  that predicament has a solution now. Popper Stopper is what they called it and I happen to have the opportunity to review this product.

The product came in  the mail in a bubble wrap envelope on time. The application is very simple, all you have to do is to get one popper stopper and simply stick it on your belly button and voila!!! That's it. No more sticking belly button out, especially if you're wearing a fashionable dress and expose to the world your amazing bump. It is latex free, medically approved and it does not pop out like bandages. Tips at the back of the package is very useful, so make sure you read it first before you use the product.

Overall, my experience with the product is indeed interesting. At least the next time I know a friend who is expecting, I can get them this product and show them how awesome it can help them.

My 38 weeks of pregnancy and who knows that this would be my last week

How your baby's growing:

Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she is over 19 1/2 inches long (about the size of a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.

Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If she's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If she's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she's 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after she's born, but they usually won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.)  source:

See what your baby looks like this week.
My experiences this week:
·        This week was the very interesting week of my pregnancy. It all started with my daily routine, and of course way too excited to be seen by my OB as I will glimpse a quick look of our unborn since I'll have my weekly ultrasound to monitor the fluid.
·        Last week, it was perfect I have 10 in fluid, however, during this week's visit came it was indeed alarming as from 10 went down to 5. Meaning, whether I am ready or not, they have to get the baby out or he will be at high risk.
·        Got my talk with the midwife and then my OB who finally talked about CS or normal delivery.
·        As I'm very persistent that I would try to do vaginal first and then a C-section if  there isn't progress during the labor, the midwife makes sure that if I'll do vaginal I'm close to be dilated. When she checked me, couldn't believe that I am 5 cm and on labor. She was amazed that I never felt any pain of the contraction, which apparently is the tightening that I often felt. Blessed me, huh!
·        Advise to go straight through the Maternity ward to be admitted.
·        Went to the hospital to check-in, glad that husband and son and SIL were finally at the clinic to pick me up and went directly to the maternity ward @WCA Hospital here in Jamestown, NY.
·        The nurses were apparently waiting for my arrival and ask me to wear my gown so they can hook me up and monitor, after less than an hour I was 6 cm dilated and felt no pain at all. Walked to the postpartum lobby for a little exercise to help fasten the labor and all I can feel is a little pressure between my legs and a very tired feet, of course the tightening belly.
·        OB arrives and decided to break my water. After water was broken, 13 minutes later I have started to feel the unbearable pain in my life, it's as if my upper  body is being separated from the waist below. Created a horrible noise to help me ease the pain and after sharp pains I decided to close my eyes and divert my mind into something like "I am only having a dysmenorrhea or really bad cramps" which for me works.
·        Being praised by my nurse that labor seems to look so easy for me as I was less whiner during those intense pain. I decided not to cry because of the excruciating pain, but tries to relax myself instead. It is very difficult to do it, however, when you are determined of aiming what you want, there isn't impossible at all.
·        Bathroom works for me, squatting is the best position to have that baby out faster and with that kind of position you'll have a good start of pushing. Glad I never pushed our son in the bathroom, but it was pretty close.
·        When my body is ready to push I did follow and pushed as much as I can, with unexpected time frame, baby came out fast, blessed it happened as I was about to lose my strength.
·        There goes the 7 lbs and 20.5 inch baby boy. Born 2 weeks before my expected due date.
·        This was supposedly a normal weekly check-up just turned out to be the day to give birth. Listen to your instinct mothers, for they will always be right. 

Here it ends my journey of pregnancy. Thank you all for reading my experience, nevertheless I will never end in here. I will share as much as I can the next level of motherhood which is having a new infant at home, how to deal with siblings [our eldest and the new baby] as well as how I get through a very hectic days.
