Using Donor Egg IVF After 35

This is a guest post.


From taking a gap year to saving up to buy our first home, there are a number of reasons why many of us are settling down to family life far later than our ancestors.

In our grandparents’ generation, the idea of getting pregnant in your late thirties was almost unheard of – but today it’s becoming increasingly common.

Statistics indicate that over the last 45 years, the average age of first-time moms has increased to 26.3 years – an increase of 5 whole years. In some countries, the mean age of first-time moms is over 30.

Silky, Shiny Hair with Desert Essence

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

I love trying out new products. Although I have do have skin and scalp sensitivities, I am still brave enough to try new brands but the key, in my opinion, is reading labels. And when you can feel good about trying about brand's product because you can understand what is in it, that makes all the difference.


I am pretty particular about the products that I use on my hair. I am still getting use to wavy hair that I started having more and more of since my first pregnancy in 2010. It is so weird how pregnancy can have unexpected side effects, like changing your hair texture. But since it does, I am more cautious with the products I use on my hand while still having to try new ones to find out what works for me. The worst pregnancy/hair side effect that happened to me was more breakage, so I need something that can help improve my hair health overall as well. Desert Essence Anti-Breakage Shampoo & Conditioner smells great and leaves my hair feeling hydrated and light.

Celebrate Christmas in July with Precious Moments

I received complimentary products to provide this post. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

Precious Moments is celebrating Christmas in July with so many wonderful pieces! We love Christmas in our house. I could listen to Christmas all year long! We decorate the house inside and out, top to bottom. We love all the events and soaking up all things that celebrate the season. This year not only do I want to focus more on teaching my children the Christmas story, I also want to sponsor an angel child or two so I can teach my children that it is more important to give.


I love working with Precious Moments and since they are celebrating Christmas in July and since I have always wanted one, I decided to choose the “Countdown To Christmas” Nativity Advent Calendar. With this piece, you can reveal the story of Christmas with this clever Advent calendar which holds a little figurine and a lovely Nativity Story Book poem with a special reading for each day of Advent!
