OMG, I'm literally dying of laughter over here because I just stumbled upon what is probably the most hilarious site I've ever seen chronicling pregnancy.
It's called Pregnant Husband and it was created by the twisted and hysterical mind of Jeffrey Bausch. We should give this man an award, because even though he didn't actually experience the pregnancy himself, he obviously paid a whole lot of attention to his wife the entire time.Continue Reading >
U.K. Mom Maria Jones-Elliot, just set a new Guinness World Record after giving birth to her twin girls an incredible 87 days apart. Yes, DAYS. I didn't even know that was possible!
Apparently, Jones-Elliot's pregnancy was completely normal until she went into sudden labor about four months before her due date. Doctors told her there was little chance of the babies surviving because they were so premature. Thankfully, her first child, Amy, was born safely, although she weighed only a little over one pound and had to be rushed to intensive care.
But as Jones-Elliot prepared to give birth to Amy's younger sister, something unbelievable happened: her contractions just stopped!Continue Reading >
Staff members at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York might be used to dealing with animals giving birth, but over the weekend, a few employees had to help a 21-year-old woman deliver a baby after she went into unexpected labor in front of an animal exhibit!Continue Reading >
After Jessica Simpson lost all her baby weight, I had to give her props--losing 60 pounds in 6 months is no easy feat for any working mom. But now, reports are saying that only seven seconds (okay, okay, months) after giving birth to her daughter and just days after seemingly regaining her pre-baby bod, Simpson is pregnant AGAIN. Huh?!! Well, that is definitely unexpected.Continue Reading >
Though plenty of parents-to-be choose to wait until birth to find out the sex of their baby, I just know that I'll be one of those moms who is dying to know whether it's a boy or a girl early on. That's why I was shocked to learn the story of British mom Emma Sohrabian, who was initally told she gave birth to a baby girl...only to have the doctors change their minds later! Huh?Continue Reading >
It happened to Kelsey Hughes, 21, as she was making the line to board a domestic flight in New Zealand. Jetstar, the airline Hughes was flying, has a policy that requires female passengers who are 28 weeks pregnant or more to carry a letter from their doctor stating they are okay to fly. And so, a flight attendant must have assumed Hughes was pregnant when he approached her to ask for her medical certificate. After a humiliated Hughes explained she wasn't pregnant, he said sorry and walked away!
Can you imagine Hughes embarrassment? The worst part according to Hughes, who weighs 154 pounds, is that "I don't look eight weeks pregnant, let alone 28 weeks. I would have had to have been huge."
I'm officially in my third trimester! This week--number 28-- is all about swollen feet, a lazy day in this unbearable heat, and exploring my different birthing options. What do you chicas know about water birth?
Today is Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven, but that's far from the most exciting thing to happen at the convenience store recently. Just a couple of weeks ago, Florida couple, Chad and Tye Malley, were forced to deliver their baby in a 7-Eleven parking lot after they were unable to make it to the hospital in time!
Weddings are happy occasions…but they're also very stressful. Even with all of the planning involved, there are still so many opportunities for something to go wrong, whether a minor mishap or a giant disaster. Well, one bride recently learned that lesson the hard way when she gave birth to her baby just minutes after tying the knot!Continue Reading >
