If you know me, you know I am the google queen and love to research everything. When I was pregnant, I used google to self diagnose any symptoms that came up. Yes, I am one of those moms. 🙂 I have to say that it may have even saved my sons life. Everyone is quick to shut down google and tell me to quit out of it most of the time. The thing is, google is a search engine and not a source of information.
So quick story, I was was around 35 weeks pregnant at the time when the itch on my hand and feet woke me up. I felt something was so wrong so I googled my symptoms at 3 in the morning. First thing that came up was something called Cholestasis of Pregnancy. I was so set that I had it. My feelings were just so strong about the Cholestasis so I went to the Doctor the next day to get everything checked and when I mentioned what I had googled, they said it was impossible. I didn’t settle for his answer so I went to the Hospital and asked to get my blood and everything checked. I was also told that I was fine after waiting for my results. Next day, I got a call from one of the Doctors from the Hospital and told me that my bile levels were very high meaning that I did have Cholestasis of Pregnancy.
Anyway, the whole point of that story just leads me to my new obsession in the world of Internet. This is keeping up to date with parenting websites, blogs and parenting networks! I feel like I follow a good amount of them and found this new one and have been reading up a storm! ParentsNeed is an awesome website where you can find topics related to parenting. The best eye concealer, the top 5 strollers, why breastfeeding is important, fun things to do with your toddler, you name it the site has it. Everything from your pregnancy and right up to your baby’s teen years. The latest one I’ve read is the Top 5 Best Eye Creams for Dark Circles. How convenient for me.
