Asked by Bridget: Help! Ear stretching?
I’m trying to stretch my ears, and at the moment I’m trying to stretch them to a size 8.
I’m having a REALLY hard time, I had left the 10′s in there for about 6 weeks, so when it came time to go to an 8 I tried putting plugs in there and they wouldn’t go in what so ever, I then put in some tapers and they had gone in..(with a little bit of force). The last few days my ears have been pretty sore, and today I went to take off my hoodie and one of the tapers caught on to my hoodie and ripped out. I went into the bathroom to check on it, and I noticed it was bleeding, and the hole in my ear isn’t even round anymore, it’s almost like a star shape. My lobe is also kinda hard/swollen. My other ear is sore, but it doesn’t look bad, it’s not swollen or red. My main concern is, what should I do, my ear is bleeding, it’s sore, and I have a feeling it’s going to start happening to the other one. Did anyone else have a problem moving up to an 8? I would really like to continue to stretch my ears, this isn’t even close to the size I would like to be at…advice/tips, please!!!!

You are trying to stretch too fast. You need to wait a minimum of 2 months to go from 10 g to 8 g. For the sake of your lobes you might want to try stretching with tape. You would need to pick up some teflon tape. ONLY use TEFLON TAPE which can be found in the plumbering asile at Home Depot or Lowe’s. Any other kind of tape will leach bad chemicals into your body. Stretching doesn’t hurt. If it does, it’s because either they are stretching too fast or skipped a gauge (or two).

Stretching from 18-8g is easy and no pain what so ever if you do it right, but it a slow process. It’s not a race, if you go fast you will have a blowout, which is a tearing of the lobes which creates scar tissue and deforms the lobes.

Here is how long it usually takes between gauges:

Fresh piercing to first stretch (18g-16g): Approx 5 to 6 months
16g to 14g – 1 month
14g to 12g – 1 month
12g to 10g – 1.5 months
10g to 8g – 2 months
8g to 6g – 3 months
6g to 4g – 3 month
4g to 2g – 3 months
2g to 0g – 4 months
0g to 00g – 4 months

Remember the slower you go the happier your lobes will be. Never dead stretch (just shoving in the next gauge). Always use a taper, or taping. With taping add one layer of teflon tape every 5-7 days, and change the entire wrapping once a month. Check here for more information about taping.


If you decide to go with a taper for a while usually steel is recommended over acrylic because they make for a smooth transition. Tapers aren’t meant to be worn for more than 1 hour. And always lube it up with soap and water, Vitamin E oil, Jojoba Oil, Emu Oil, or naked oil before insertion.

While your stretching ONLY wear No Flare or Single Flare plugs and never use acrylic as they will stick and cause infection since it is a porous material. Also don’t use silicone in a fresh stretch. Stick to glass, steel, titanium, or stone.

You should give your lobes massages with a moisturizing oil twice a day to make them stretchy and supple. Use Vitamin E oil found in capsule form in the vitamin section at Walmart or pharmacies. Just break open a capsule and use the oil. You could even use olive oil.

Asked by coeurdouxmignon: Sliming down after baby?
I had a baby in late November and I can’t wait to get going with a diet.

I’m breastfeeding exclusively, which I heard makes you loose quicker. But it’s been over 6 weeks since I left the hospital and I’ve only lost about 5lbs (not including the 20something I dropped in the hospital).

Even worse, it seems like my thighs are bigger, as well as my behind. My daughter is deffinently worth the extra weight, but I’m more than anxious to slim down.

Did any of you mums gain in your thighs and behind? Do you have any tips?

Answer by RileysMom?

    You should get the elite because it comes with everything for xboxlive

    Xboxlive 1 month= 7.92

    3 months = 15.92

    13 months= 38.92

    some other good games are

    gears of war 1 &2
    call of duty WAW
    call of duty 4
    all guitar heros
    fable 2
    left 4 dead

    Get the Elite, its fixed in many ways.
    You must have: Gears of War 2, CoD4, GTA IV and Left 4 Dead

    Xbox LIVE membership costs $ 60 per year (or $ 5 per month)

    Go for the elite. I recommend Gears of War 2,Burnout Paradise. It depends on which xbox live membership you want, the 12+1 month superscription is about $ 50-$ 60. I recommend that one to get.

    The only difference is that the elite is black (the controller is also black), the hard drive is 120GB instead of 60GB on the premium, and that the elite has an HD AV cable. (the quality is the same. I have Xbox 360 elite, and i checked both cables – no visible difference).
    If you are a heavy downloader, go for the elite. otherwise, save your 100 bucks and buy something else with it.

    Other great games: halo wars, gears of war 1+2, GTA 4, PGR 4, bioshock, resident evil 5, ninja blade……

    You also get free 1 month gold live membership. 13 months cost around 50-60$ .

    Breastfeeding helps tone the tummy, since it makes the uterus contract and get back to shape. You will retain some extra weight because of the extra breast tissue. As for butt and thighs, haul out the stroller and go for walks and even runs with baby. She’ll love being outdoors, too.

    If you are breastfeeding, you should not diet. Just eat healthy and keep on nursing. The weight will come off – I’m 9.5 months into nursing / pumping and down 10 lbs. from my pre-pregnancy weight. At 6 weeks I still had a long way to go – but the more you’re up and around and continue nursing, you’ll slim down.

    Enjoy your newborn and congratulations!

    I have yet to try this but I plan on trying to work out when my daughter has a nap. (I hope it will help somewhat…)
    I am going to try to do 20-30min during her morning nap then continue on with what I need to do with my day.
    And if I feel like it I might try to do another 20 min during her afternoon nap too!
    This way I figure I have no excuse, 10 min on the bike, few min doing sit ups and a few doing weight sets everyday sounds pretty doable, I hope….

    i gained 40 pounds when i was preggers, and i lost all of my pregnancy weight. it wasn’t easy, but it definitely can be done. this should help stop your post-baby weight gain and get you where you want to be: if you live where the weather is mild enough, the best thing to do is put the baby in a baby bjorn and go for long fast walks. if you can, find some streets with hills and — the best — steep flights of stairs. aim for 40 minutes of moving briskly. the added weight of the baby makes the walk even more efficient. also, before your walk, whenever you have 15 minutes without the baby in your arms, do one muscle group with free weights (or canned vegetables if you don’t own weights). for example, do biceps curls one day, shoulder raises the next, sit ups/crunches, etc. do at least one group of muscles before your walk. and take one day (at least) when you don’t do the walk and focus on leg muscles: squats, lunges, dead lifts all can be done at home. aim for 4 walks a week (5 if you can) and a different muscle group every day, resulting in a 3 or 4 day rotation.
    now, if it is too cold right now where you live, it is slightly more challenging. the weight work will remain the same. for the walks, you have a few options. hold your baby, put on some music, and dance around your living room. so a lot of knee bending. it may feel stupid, but the baby will love it, and if you can keep it up for 30 -40 minutes, it will give you great results. worse case scenario, go to a mall with the baby in the bjorn and walk as much as you can. don’t take elevators.
    stick with it, and it will work. i promise. as for dieting, be very careful. don’t eat fewer than 1800 calories a day at an absolute minimum: otherwise, you’ll risk killing your milk supply AND slowing your metabolism. i would avoid any real diets and focus on eating small meals every 2 hours. make your meals high in fiber, protein, whole grains, and whole foods — avoid processed stuff. keep your body clean and it will tello you what to eat. i have done that my whole adult life and it has always worked for me.
    you’ll get there. good luck, and try to be patient; it’ll be gone before you know it.
