A Test For Detection Of Pregnancy



M. Nauche has found that the urine of pregnant women contains a particular substance, which, when the urine is allowed to stand separates and forms a pellicle on the surface.



M. Enguiser, from an extensive series of observations, has confirmed the fact, and ascertained that kisteine, as this particular substance has been called, is constantly formed on the surface of the urine of women in a state of pregnancy.



The urine must be allowed to stand for from two to six days, when minute opaque bodies are observed to rise from the bottom to the surface of the fluid, where they gradually unite and form a continuous layer over the surface. This layer is so consistent that it may be almost lifted off by raising it by one of its edges.

This is the kisteine. It is whitish, opalescent, slightly granular, and can be compared to nothing better than the fatty substance which floats on the surface of soups after they have been allowed to cool.



When examined by the microscope, it has the aspect of a gelatinous mass without determinate form; sometimes cubical shaped crystals are discovered on it, but this appearance is only observed when it has stood a long time, and is to be regarded as foreign to it.



The kisteine remains on the surface for several days; the urine then becomes turbid, and small opaque masses become detached from the kisteine and fall to the bottom of the fluid and the pellicle soon becomes destroyed.



The essential character of the urine of pregnancy, then, is the presence of the kisteine; and the characters of the pellicle are so peculiar that it is impossible to mistake it for anything else.



A pellicle sometimes forms on the surface of the urine of patients laboring under phthisis, abscess, or disease of the bladder, but may be easily distinguished by this circumstance, that it does not form in such a short time as the kisteine, and that in place of disappearing, as this last, in a few days, it increases in thickness and at last is converted into a mass of moldiness.



There exists, likewise, a very marked difference between its mucous aspect and that of kisteine; a difference which is difficult to describe, but which is easily recognized. Kisteine appears to exist in the urine from the first month of pregnancy till delivery. It has even been recognized in the urine of a few gravid animals.

When it is threatened, or on the appearance of the first symptoms, the patient should lie down and be as quiet as possible; live on very light diet; bowels be kept freely open; and an injection of thirty drops of laudanum should be given in half a pint of slippery elm tea.



Should flooding be present, cold lemonade should be drank freely, and cloths wet with cold or ice water applied to the thighs and lower part of the birthplace, which should be repeated until the flooding is relieved.



To prevent miscarriage, women of weak or relaxed habit should use solid food, avoiding great quantities of tea, coffee, or other weak or watery liquors. They should go soon to bed and rise early, and take frequent exercise, but avoid fatigue. They should occasionally take half a pint of the decoction of lignum-vitæ, boiling an ounce of it in a quart of water for five minutes.

If of a full habit, they ought to use a spare diet and chiefly of the vegetable kind, avoiding strong liquors and everything that may tend to heat the body or increase the quantity of blood; and when the symptoms appear, should take a dram of powdered nitre in a cup of water gruel every five or six hours.



In both cases the patient should sleep on a hard mattress and be kept cool and quiet; the bowels should be kept regular by a pill of white walnut extract or bitterroot.

Fetal Movement | Quickening In Pregnancy | Management At Home | Natural Products | Old Fashioned Information | The Vintage Woman



Fetal Movement | Quickening In Pregnancy | Management At Home | Natural Products | Old Fashioned Information | The Vintage Woman.



The first time a woman is with child this sensation of quickening is like that of a bird fluttering within her; at other times she feels a tickling or pushing sensation, or the child gives a kick or a jump, and this, too, with so much energy as to move the petticoats, a book, or any light article she may have in her lap.



It is important to remember these symptoms, and the order in which they occur: first, cessation of the menses; second, morning sickness; third, swelling and darting pains in the breast, and dark color around the nipples; fourth, gradual enlargement of the abdomen or belly; fifth, the movement of the child.



In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, if these symptoms are present the woman is pregnant. Pregnant women are generally affected with heartburn, sickness of a morning, headache, and that troublesome disease, toothache, which accompanies pregnancy; all of which may usually be avoided by keeping the bowels gently open with seidlitz powders, caster oil, or pills of rhubarb, which should be taken occasionally, either alone or in combination with colocynth.

A clyster made of warm soapsuds will often be sufficient if repeated every few days; or senna and manna; and if there is any aversion to taking medicine, give some simple articles, such as roasted apples, figs, prunes, or anything that will quiet the stomach and prevent costiveness of the bowels.



Toothache often complained of by pregnant women, and which may occur at any period, is seldom relieved by extraction, having its seat in the adjacent nerves of the face or jaws, and is neuralgic.



The teeth ought not to be drawn during pregnancy, unless urgently required, but should be relieved by applying hot fomentations to the face, as a camomile poultice. Rubbing the jaw externally with spirits of camphor or laudanum, or applying mustard plasters or blisters behind the ears, will afford relief.



The cramps of the legs. Etc., in pregnancy, caused by the pressure of the enlarged womb on the nerves, are often troublesome, but not attended with any danger, and may be speedily relieved by a change of posture, and friction, or rubbing with opodeldoc, spirits of camphor, or hot whisky and salt.



Palpitation of the heart occurs frequently, and usually about the period of quickening. In general, it is the result of a disordered stomach and may be relieved by attention to diet and moderate doses of magnesia and Epsom salts, of equal quantities.



The palpitation of the heart may be produced by a morbid state of the nerves, and is then termed hysterical. Attention in all such cases should be paid to the diet, air, exercise, etc., with the view of improving the strength, the bowels being kept open by mild means.



All exciting or agitating subjects should be carefully avoided, and the mind of the pregnant woman kept calm and tranquil; for the mind, in the early stages of pregnancy, exercises the most powerful influence over the child through life; and how many peculiar traits of character have been indelibly fixed upon their offspring from these exciting causes is evident in many families.



When the palpitation occurs from the state of the nerves, as before described, producing uncomfortable feelings, a teaspoonful of the tincture of castor or asafœtida, with an equal quantity of compound spirits of lavender, mixed in a little water, will seldom fail to afford relief, which may, if necessary, be repeated on its recurrence.



Morning sickness is one of the most painful feelings attendant on the pregnant state, and it is one of those which medicine commonly fails to relieve.



A cup of camomile or peppermint tea, taken when first awaking, and suffering the patient to be still for an hour, will frequently alleviate the distressing sickness; but should it recur during the day, and if these means fail, two or three teaspoonfuls of the following mixture should then be taken either occasionally or, when the vomiting and heartburn are more continual, immediately after each meal:




Take of—
Calcined magnesia,One dram;
Distilled water,Six ounces;
Aromatic tincture of rhatany,Six drams;
Water of pure ammonia,One dram.



Mix. The anxiety and sometimes despondency of mind—in other words, lowness of spirits—to which pregnant women are more or less liable greatly depends on the state of their general health and the natural temper and character of the individual; but it can be greatly aggravated, and may often be excited by circumstances or officious persons.



Let me, then, urge upon you the important necessity of keeping the mind as tranquil and cheerful as possible, particularly during the first four months of pregnancy. A judicious course of this kind will produce the most beneficial and well-balanced mind in the child; while, if the contrary, a desponding and nervous temperament, with many other peculiarities, will be the consequence.

Jehovah Tsidkenu – The Lord Our Righteousness. We don’t have any righteousness of our own as believers. Our righteousness comes through faith by believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and his resurrection. It’s not about what we do or don’t do. It’s about what Jesus already did for us. And we can have a sure confidence in the work of Jesus. 

The righteousness of God never fails to protect us from enemies and the tricks of the devil because it is pure and holy. 



But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back._ 39. But we do not belong to those who shrink 3


Our righteousness on the other hand is as filthy rugs and exposes us to enemies. Let’s learn to lean on God and trust his righteousness. We can then be able to walk confidently, safe in the knowledge that Jesus is our righteousness and because he has us, we won’t be able to shrink back, backslide or lose our way. We can be sure of heaven and prosperity when we have Jesus as our righteousness.

In the current age in which we live, people often expect quick fixes and quick answers. Most people are impatient. And thanks to technological advancement, life has become faster and we can now get things more quickly thanks to microwaves, heaters, driers, dryers, dishwashers etc. 

House chores are not as burdensome as they used to be. Transportation is faster with airplanes, fast trains and cars.  If you need quick love and sex, there are numerous websites and services that offer that. We love speed and we have access to it. 

And yet not everything in life is easy to come by.

For example:

  • •Some couples take years before getting children.
  • •Some investments take years to grow before yielding.
  • •A quality education takes decades.
  • •Building a great career can take years.
  • •Getting your first house or car may take months or years etc.
  • •Some diseases and sicknesses take months or even years before cure.

There are promises that God has made to us as believers. And some of us have waited for years with no signs of answers. The Bible verse above is encouraging us to hold on and never give up.



So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God 3
  • Keep fasting.
  • Keep praying.
  • Keep doing good.
  • Keep obeying God.
  • Keep running the race of faith.
  • Keep giving your tithe and offering.
  • Keep giving to those who are less privileged than you are.
  • Keep serving those around you who need your assistance. 

Despite the persecution and trials please don’t let go of your faith. Your services and sacrifices are not in vain. 

The promises of God are yes and amen. In due time he will reward you. At the right moment he will open the doors that need to be opened. Just keep holding on and never give up. Jesus never fails.

There Is A Time For Every Activity And Every Work – Work Bible Verses.



It’s labor day …. A day to celebrate workers and laborers in the USA and Canada.  When the Bible speaks of work, it is not necessarily speaking of a corporate job or a white collar engagement. The Bible is filled with many types of works we are encouraged to do.


Ministry, serving others, preaching, sharing the gospel, helping the less advantaged are all types of work. As can be witnessed by recent news trends the world is hurting and there is a lot of work for all of us to do to relieve the suffering of others.


From supporting the victims of the mudslides in Sierra Leone, to offering relief and other volunteer services to families in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey, to sending aid and help to victims of floods in Benue state ,Nigeria and remembering the countless casualties in Nepal, India,  Bangladesh and Pakistan facing the catastrophes caused by the floods sweeping through Asia!


There is certainly no end to what we can do in offering compassion, kindness, empathy, encouragement, strength, physical labor, financial support etc. The Bible also clearly shows us that there is a lot of dignity and nobility in working. God is a worker and so is his son Jesus Christ. God encourages us to work diligently just like he does and promises to reward the works of our hands.


The scriptures show us that there are good works and evil works and the Lord who is the final judge will repay everyone according to their deeds. And just like we are encouraged to work wholesomely, God also commands and encourages us to rest from all the labor we engage in because he rested too! Enjoy the scriptures on work and labor!



Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.

2 Chronicles 15:7


Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.

Proverbs 12:24


Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58


My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”

John 5:17


Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

Psalms 127:1


That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.

1 Timothy 4:10


And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Genesis 2:2-3


Six days you shall labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during the plowing season and harvest you must rest.

Exodus 34:21


Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:

Ecclesiastes 4:9


This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot.

Ecclesiastes 5:18


Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.
2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Psalms 128:1-2


And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Revelation 22:12


No longer will they build houses and others live in them,
or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them.

Isaiah 65:22-23


For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:9


And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?

Matthew 6:28-30


Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

Exodus 20:9-11


I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”

John 4:38
