In the merry month of May it’s time to grill your dinner, kick the soccer ball around, hike or backpack or be a happy “yardener” who carefully tends his or her patch of turf.

My daughter is almost 7 and she still has a hard time deciphering between an ad on a website and something that she might be interested in that could benefit her. As she gets older, she is becoming more hesitant to click on the ads but she still has a hard time with it.

Confirming pregnancy is one of the most exciting moments a woman shares with friends and loved ones.  Now, with social media, pregnancy announcements are more creative than ever before!  From Fergie and Josh Duhamel, to Gwen Stefani, expectant parents (from the biggest celebrities to your next door neighbors!) are giving the world a glimpse into their most special moments.

To recognize the creative ways that expectant parents are announcing their pregnancies online, Clearblue is launching its “Clearblue Celebrates Sweepstakes,” which is hosted on the Clearblue Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/clearblue/).  From today until May 22, parents and parents-to-be have a chance to show off their most imaginative pregnancy announcements to be entered to win $5,000 as part of the #ClearblueSweepsEntry Sweepstakes!
