Surrogate Just Gave Birth To Twin Babies.

For a number of reasons, some couples are unable to have a child. There may be a medical condition or even just fertility problems. When couples are in situations like this, they often turn to surrogates for aid. However, for one couple this was not an option. In China, hiring a surrogate is illegal. One Chinese couple kept running into difficulties having a child. They knew a surrogate could streamline the process so they moved to the U.S. and hired one. Jessica Allen was hired for an initial $30,000.

This was until Jessica went to her first ultrasound and discovered that she was actually carrying twins. The couple raised her pension adding an extra $5,000 to compensate for the newly discovered second baby. After 38 weeks, Allen delivered the babies on December 12, 2016. Perhaps to her dismay, the newly born were immediately whisked away before Allen could even get a glimpse of them. She went home to her husband and continued on with her life. Then, she received a text from the couple she had just delivered for.

They said that one of the twins was clearly Chinese and the other was clearly not. It was clear that they were not identical twins. The couple had done a DNA test and discovered that only the Chinese child was theirs. The other child was Allen’s and had somehow been conceived after the other couple’s embryo egg had been implanted.

The couple wanted nothing to do with Allen’s child. They planned to put him up for adoption and additionally demanded $22,000 dollars in compensation. They no longer were willing to pay for the child’s development as it wasn’t theirs. Jessica had just moved to a new house with her partner and had little savings at the moment. She was forced to take out a loan to get her child. Luckily, they made it back to each other. She named him Malachai but this is not where the story ends….

It is wonderful to have our homes smell good, and scented candles became very popular over the last decade.  That is, until it was discovered that many of these candles and scented sprays contain really dangerous chemicals, that can cause permanent lung damage.

I, myself, have stopped using those candles that I used to love, because of the inherent health hazard they carry.  I’m always looking for natural alternatives that are chemical free, to provide a nice fresh smell in my home.  When I came upon this DIY video for creating a natural air freshener I was intrigued.

The video below is a great tutorial for how to easily, inexpensively and quickly make your own fresh and chemical-free deodorizer.  Two alternative versions are demonstrated, which differ slightly in how they release the fragrance.

For both versions, all you will need are: a MASON JAR WITH A TIN LID, HAMMER, FORK, EMPTY CANDLE CONTAINER, SCREWDRIVER, BAKING SODA AND SOME ESSENTIAL OIL.  The DIY is easy to follow, and gives you a great means to slow-release a pleasant scent into any room in your home.

Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and watch the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few weeks and months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove. The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

These are just really helpful.

Clean air vents with small foam brushes. They can easily fit in even the smallest vents and pick up all the dirt and dust inside them.

Get streak free windows by cleaning them with newspaper. It’s the cloths and paper towels that leave streaks when you clean your windows so don’t even bother using them. Instead, spray down the window with cleaner and wipe it off with a piece of newspaper as you normally would.

Get rid of stubborn, lingering odors by sprinkling baking soda on car seats and carpets. Let it sit for a couple of hours before vacuuming it up. The baking soda should absorb the foul odors, leaving your car smelling fresh and clean.

Texas Mother Thought She Was Giving Birth To Twins. But Then The Doc Looks Closer and Immediately Yells ‘Help!’

image via – youtube.com

Childbirth is terrifying. It’s long, painful, and never guaranteed to end well. Even giving birth to one child is very risky. Add more than one and the chances of something going wrong increase dramatically. One couple was willing to take the risk.

Lauren and David wanted a baby more than anything. They had tried and tried to get pregnant to no avail. Finally, the couple decided that they needed to try a different tactic: artificial insemination. They began the process and soon enough, Lauren got positive on a pregnancy test.

It was soon time for the first checkup. After taking some tests, the doctor informed Lauren that her HCG levels were very high. This meant it was possible that Lauren was carrying a second child. Lauren and David couldn’t believe their luck.

Soon after, they came back in for the ultrasound. They couldn’t wait to see if Lauren had twins. The doctor set up the ultrasound and gasped when he looked at the screen. He claimed there were 5 babies. A minute later to the stunned everyone, he found a 6th child. The doctor told them that they could terminate some of the fetuses to give the rest a better chance at survival. Lauren and David wouldn’t hear it. They had always wanted a big family and they finally had a chance to make that happen.

The day Lauren was due finally came. In total, there were 35 people in the delivery room all doing their part to aid in the pregnancy. There were also 6 nurses waiting to take each individual child. Luckily, all the precautions took paid off. Lauren safely delivered all 6 babies within only 4 minutes! Lauren and David couldn’t believe they had gotten so lucky. They rejoiced and went home to start their family.

Mother Just Gave Birth To Triplets. But 30 Minutes Later The Doctor Walks Into The Room and Tells Her ‘I’m Sorry’

image via – youtube.com

When Amy and Michael Howard from Center Moriches, New York found out they were expecting triplets, the couple was over the moon. The new parents to be were excited and while they knew generally what to expect, they were totally unprepared for just how much their lives were about to change.

As soon as Amy gave birth in October to the three boys, both she and Michael could tell right away that something was wrong with them. The newborns, Hunter, Jackson, and Caden, all had misshaped heads due to a condition known as craniosynostosis. Infants born with the condition have skulls where the bones have been prematurely joined together inside the uterus, which can lead to an underdeveloped brain and misshapen head. If not corrected early on, the malformation can possibly lead to limited brain function. The Howards thought that since the triplets were crowded in the womb, it had led to the problem, and that now the boys were out they would begin to develop normal head shapes.

Doctors who examined the babies were baffled and astounded by what they found. On average, 1 in 2,500 babies are born with craniosynostosis, but for all three triplets to have it the odds are seemingly impossible at 1 in 500 trillion! Nevertheless, the babies had it and doctors broke the bad news to the couple that all three needed surgery to correct the condition.

When the boys were just nine weeks old, they all underwent the first ever craniosynostosis operations performed on triplets. Thankfully all of them turned out well with no complications and after two days in the hospital the boys were able to go home. They still had a long road to recovery ahead and had to wear special helmets 23 hours a day, seven days a week, for six months to ensure proper skull development.

By the time Hunter, Jackson, and Caden were over a year old, they had all developed normal shaped heads. They had also reached important developmental milestones without any issues and were normal, healthy babies who had managed to overcome the condition they were born with. While the odds were astronomical and never seen before, the outcome was thankfully better than anyone could have expected!

She Was Diagnosed As ‘Insane’ But She Gave Her Doc a Picture She Drew and Suddenly He Realized The Horrific Truth!

image via – youtube.com

Modern medicine has come along way since it’s humble beginnings. Scientists and doctors all around the world have made incredible discoveries which have cured incurable diseases and saved millions of lives. Between all the technological advancements in CT Scans, Bloodwork, X-rays and every other tool other than the amazing medicines doctors use to treat their patients they aren’t always perfect! Sometimes there is no clear cut path to take when it comes to curing somebody of their ailment and this can make many of their day to day decisions extremely complicated and stressful.

Even after years and years of medical school, nursing school, dental school or any other medical speciality professional school mistakes can still happen. Remember medical professionals are still human no matter how well they are trained. There are things that can happen that nobody could possibly anticipate but they do the best they can and always try their hardest to follow the hippocratic oath and never neglect or do harm to a patient purposely..

With all this being said it brings us to today’s interesting story about a woman named Suzanna who was an intelligent, driven and happy woman who just landed a dream job at the New York Post when she was only 24 years old. In this same year she had gotten into her first serious relationship with a man who she had been with for over 6 months. Everything was going so unbelievably well for this young woman however things would soon take a turn for the worse than nobody could anticipate.

At first she began getting strange itchy feelings all over her body. She couldn’t see anything on her skin but the feeling was really uncomfortable and disturbing. She thought perhaps it might’ve been bed bugs so she got an exterminator to come over and fumigate her place hoping it would solve her issue. The problem is, when the exterminator arrived and began inspecting her place he couldn’t find a single bed bug. This concerned her because now she had no clue where these strange sensations were coming from and she began to get nervous.

Then things began to spiral out of control as she grew more and more paranoid, with delusions and hallucinations. On top of that she was having recurring seizures. Things got so bad that she couldn’t get to her job at the New York Post or even leave her place for that matter.  She ended up admitting herself to NYU Medical Hospital where her ‘crazy’ episodes escalated and at some times she would even become violent with the doctors and nurses. She felt completely helpless and out of control and she couldn’t understand what in the world was happening! She even went as far to say multiple times that she felt like a zombie and whoever she was before was gone.

The Doctors on staff all agreed that she was probably having a mental break and should go to a mental health facility where she could get the proper care she desperately needed. However there was one Doctor at the clinic that wanted to examine her and take a closer look before she was transferred to the mental health facility because he wasn’t totally convinced she was having a mental break or even crazy at all.

He came into her room, introduced himself and then asked her to do something for him that seemed a bit strange at the time but would end up changing the trajectory of her life forever. The doctor asked her to take a pen and draw a clock on the piece of paper he handed her. She drew the clock and that’s when the doctor knew his hunch was right. What he would discover would leave everyone stunned…

She Wore The Same Mascara To Sleep For Twenty Five Years. What The Doctors Discovered Under Her Eyelids Let Them Stunned!

image via – youtube.com

If you wear makeup on your face, it’s always best to wash it off before going to sleep at night.  If you wear mascara on your eyes, you should definitely remove it before you go to bed, as one woman found out the hard way.

Teresa Lynch always liked wearing makeup and since she was in her mid-20s she’d been applying mascara daily.  She preferred waterproof mascara because it stayed on longer and wouldn’t smear down her face if she cried or it got wet.  Teresa also had a dirty little secret; she never took off her mascara before she went to bed. 

When Teresa was around 50 years old, she started having trouble with her eyes.  It constantly felt like there was something in them and it got so bad that she had to make an appointment with her eye doctor.  While examining her eyes he asked her is she wore mascara and she told him yes, every day. Then he asked her how often she took it off before going to sleep and she told him the honest truth, that in the past 25 years she had never removed her mascara before bed.  After looking under her eyelids the doctor told her that what had been bothering her all this time was mascara build-up in her eyes, which over time had calcified into hard lumps!

The hard lumps of mascara had become embedded in the inner surface of her eyelid, some went even deeper, and the rough lumps were scraping her cornea every time she blinked.  When he flipped her eyelid instead of being clear and pinkish, it was covered in black little dots of hardened mascara. In addition to that painful problem, she also had follicular conjunctivitis, a bacterial infection which is more commonly known as pink eye.

At this point, Teresa had done permanent damage and the surface of her eyes were scarred.  In order to prevent further damage she would need surgery to remove the lumps under her eyelids.  After a 90 minute invasive surgery and weeks of healing, her eyes finally felt better.

Even after all she had been through, Teresa still wanted to wear mascara.  She cleared it with her doctor first and when she was able to wear it again, she made sure to fully remove it before going to bed. She decided to share her story as a precautionary tale to anyone else who doesn’t remove their makeup before bed.  You definitely do not want to end up with permanent damage or needing invasive eye surgery.

She Goes To Her Doc With Pain and Swelling On Her Forehead. He Looks At It and Is Stunned By What He Finds!

image via – youtube.com

This is the story of a very rare ordeal that a 55 year old woman from York, UK went through after returning from a trip she’d taken to Uganda, Africa.  Shortly after getting back she noticed red swelling on her hairline. She ignored it at first but when it steadily got worse, she went to the hospital to have it checked out.  The doctors who examined her thought it was just an infected insect bite, so they sent her home with antibiotics. Three days later the woman returned to the hospital, this time complaining of shooting pains around her face.  In addition, the swelling had spread from her forehead to her eyes which was troubling.

The doctors ordered tests and soon found out that maggots had somehow dug their way into her forehead!  As disgusting as the diagnosis was, it was thankfully caught early on and the maggots were easily removed.  According to a British Medical Journal case report, the first maggot came out when petroleum jelly was applied to her forehead.  However, an ultrasound revealed that a second one was still inside, so doctors cut open her skin, removed it, and cleaned out the area.  After spending four days in the hospital the woman fully recovered and was free to go home.    

The maggots were sent off to the London School of Tropical Medicine where they were identified as lungs fly offspring, a rare species found only in African rainforests.  This made sense because while visiting Uganda the woman had gone on a tour through a rainforest in Kibale National Park. Upon investigating her story further, doctors concluded that she must have wrapped a towel around her head which contained fly eggs.  The eggs made their way inside her forehead via a small wound and developed into maggots, at which point they caused her pain and discomfort and were found.  

The medical term for this strange phenomenon is called myiasis, which is an infection of fly larvae whereby the eggs get under a person’s skin via a surface wound.  The eggs then develop into maggots before eventually dropping off on their own. Myiasis most often occurs in tropical and subtropical areas, like the rainforest the woman had trekked through on her trip.  

As if the story wasn’t horrible enough, according to the woman, her son’s friend who had accompanied them was also infected on the trip.  He had a large lump on his back which he sought treatment for, but different doctors in London had dismissed it as an infected insect bite as well and bandaged him up.  When he took the bandage off his skin the maggot ended up coming out on its own. In the end both patients fully recovered and now, at the very least, more awareness of the possible issue has been raised.
