Your baby’s umbilical cord blood is a rich source of special blood cells called stem cells. These cells are the body’s building blocks for blood, organs, tissue, and the immune system and are genetically unique to each baby. When you bank your baby’s cord blood, you preserve a unique biological resource that is like a ‘self-repair kit’ for your child and other possible family members.

A growing number of families everyday are choosing to bank their babies’ umbilical cord blood as a potential cure for dozens of cancers, blood disorders, immune and genetic diseases. This is especially true for families that have a history of disease. StemCyte offers many options to help families just like yours afford to save this precious resource.

There are many decisions to make during your pregnancy as well as preparation for the newest addition. Saving your baby’s stem cells should be one of them. Cord blood can only be collected in the first few minutes after birth, so you must make this decision by your 3rd trimester, if not sooner, so that you have your collection kit with you to bring to the hospital. In some instances, you can get a collection kit when you arrive at the hospital. Not all hospitals have this option, so you really should enroll sooner, if possible.

And now there’s a competing cord-blood ad. We’re gonna corner the market, I tell ya.

ADD: Two competing cord-blood ads. Who knew?

@nojo: Clearly, it’s a hot commodity. Before you know it, we’ll be able to trade shares of cord blood on the NYSE.

Since everybody asked — please, folks, play along — the iPad mini is really, really light.

TJ/ Please go see my husband’s movie Wreck-It Ralph this weekend. We need the job stability, particularly with Disney’s record of paying for acquisitions with layoffs…

TJ/ And in the good news column… I got the OK to start hormone therapy. Now I just need to shop for shoes and clothes!!

@nojo: no cord blood ad, but a mattress ad – the beginning of the process.

@CheapBoy: Yay! Your Stinque Department of Fashionistas is available for consultations. And remember what Coco Chanel said: before you leave the house, look in the mirror, and take one thing off.

ADD: Related – mother of a trans woman meets Joe Biden, he gives her a bear hug and tells her he thinks trans rights are “a civil rights issue for our time.” FSM bless him for being so civilized about it. Raise the Biden koozie.

@SanFranLefty: Ah, so it is a good thing. I thought she might be getting the boy juice, which sometimes indicates a problem.

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: Could be that, or maybe it was my assumption that excitement about shoes and clothes meant a different direction. There’s nothing wrong with getting the boy juice, either.

@CheapBoy: Stinque’s favorite Aussie, please clarify for me and Tomm that this is a good thing.

@nojo: @Lefty:

I did boy juice, once upon a time. Believe me, it’s not good for you.

Queue Benedick in 1, 2, 3,.,

Here’s something we can all agree on today: Go Ducks!

@Dodgerblue: UofL is now 9-0 for the first time. Mediocre conference, but still.

@Dodgerblue: Indeed. Mr. SFL is quite anxious. I’m enjoying watching The Tree crush Colorado.

@mellbell: Mazel Tov.

@SanFranLefty: Meh. Colorado is the doormat of the Pac 12. Although, football aside, some friends of mine are in Colo now precinct-walking for Obama. Looking good per Nate Silver.

@Dodgerblue: The Pac-what? Where did those four extra teams come from?

@nojo: You’re telling me. Now, can you tell me the difference between a 120pf bright capacitor and a mouse turd? One has wires, yes? You need eyes like a fucking eagle to do this electrical stuff.

@Dodgerblue:
Depends on who your supplier is.

/the perspective of someone who once had to deal with an idiot who pushed on us some cheap 120pF capacitors which were basically mouse turds stamped with 120pF instead/

@Dodgerblue: Yeah, at 45-0, I think it’s safe for me to walk over to the Obama campaign HQ and call beleaguered Ohians.

@Dodgerblue: can you tell me the difference between a 120pf bright capacitor and a mouse turd?

One is shit by a mouse, the other by a robot.

@nojo: Think I found it. we’ll see in a couple of weeks when I power this baby up and see if it explodes takes down the Edison grid works.

Wait. Has boy juice devolved into Sport?

And why the obsession with Paris? Why is it every time I sniff le stinque it’s Paris this, Paris that? Can’t we all just forget Paris? I don’t want to talk about it. You can’t make me talk about Paris. I don’t want to. The 2nd Arrondissement is dead to me. Thank you. Forget Paris. Oh wait…

Pairs. Right. The passive-aggressive version of Paris.

Oh dear God, the hubby is watching Judy Garland meets Nazis. I’m not strong enough.

This is especially true for families that have a history of disease.

Whose family doesn’t?
