They call them Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. You may call them some of the best shopping days this year! It seems like everyone's trying to get into the sales action with clever names and dazzling deals.
What sales or deals are you tempted by? Have your plans changed this year because you're pregnant?
TeenMom2008, congratulations on making it to the 2nd Trimester this Friday. I'm sorry you had a tough 1st Trimester, but I'm glad you have lots of support and things are looking up for you now. I hope they just continue to improve.
I'll look forward to your joining us on the 2nd Trimester!
My condolences on your loss, Twogrlsmom. I know you and all of us here were hoping that this pregnancy would not end in miscarriage.
This article on Miscarriage mentions that, "It is unusual to have three or more miscarriages in a row. But if you do, your doctor may do tests to see if a health problem may be causing the miscarriages." I hope your doctor does the testing and is able to help you avoid any future problems.
"Smucker's is recalling some 16-ounce jars of Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter Chunky because of possible salmonella contamination. The recall affects only Smucker's chunky style peanut butter. It does not involve Smucker's creamy peanut butter or other Smucker's products.
"No illnesses have been reported. Smucker's says it voluntarily began the recall "as a result of a routine sampling program which revealed these finished products may contain the bacteria."
"The recalled peanut butter was sold in Washington, D.C. and in 24 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin."
