I’ve always enjoyed writing…but I never thought I’d be writing a blog, let alone starting my own business.  But here I am, and I’ll begin by revealing why we chose the name Sparkling Mama.  When I become pregnant for the first time, I was so excited for the round belly, I wanted to do photo shoots and had grand plans for dress up….I wanted to show that pregnancy glow that everyone talks about.

When I become pregnant for the first time, I was so excited for the round belly, I wanted to do photo shoots and had grand plans for dress up….I wanted to show that pregnancy glow that everyone talks about.I found out right at week 4, very early, I was pregnant, thin, with no bump, I felt great, I was glowing…ha ha. At 6 weeks, I was hit with a ton of bricks, I felt so sick that I could barely get out of bed…shower, eat or even brush my teeth. I felt like my world had crashed down, and although I was prepared for a little nausea, I was not prepared for the round the clock vomiting. Was this the flu…or morning sickness?

At 6 weeks, I was hit with a ton of bricks, I felt so sick that I could barely get out of bed…shower, eat or even brush my teeth. I felt like my world had crashed down, and although I was prepared for a little nausea, I was not prepared for the round the clock vomiting. Was this the flu…or morning sickness? I did not glow, I did not Sparkle. I was disappointed to say the least, scared and overwhelmed.

I tried everything to make me feel better.

I was able to keep down small amounts of bubbly beverages, and for someone that never drank soda, it was all I wanted. Bring it, I lived on carbonation. It went on for 22 weeks, pretty bad…and then started to subside…never totally, but enough to begin to feel a little sparkle come back.

When trying to describe our brand, the word Sparkling resonated with my husband and I, it was all encompassing, and felt like it described our journey. So, Sparkling Mama, was born. (No pun intended! 🙂
