Oh, Shakira, let us count the ways that we love you! The Colombian singer and TV host just made us love her a little more (if that's even possible) because she made an adorable appearance on the Ellen show and opened up for the very first time about her experience giving birth to her adorable son Milan.
Though the chubby little baby may elicit "Ooohs and ahhhs" these days, Shakira said when he first came out, she was sort of shocked. Here's what she had to say...
Telling your kids that you're pregnant again can be tricky because you never quite know what they're going to do in response. Case in point? The two young sisters in the hilarious video below each had completely different reactions after their parents shared the news that they're expecting twins!Continue Reading >
Kim Kardashian looked AMAZING showing off her evolving pregnancy body in a teeny tiny bikini during her recent vacation in Greec--and Us Weekly has the photos to prove it! It's nice to see the mom-to-be embrace her curves, considering the way she's been covering her body with all the horrible maternity outfits she's sported throughout most of her pregnancy. Seriously, don't even get me started on that crazy floral thing she wore at the Met Gala Monday night. I'm still trying to erase it from my memory.Continue Reading >
Giving birth to twins can be scary enough, but can you imagine giving birth to twins on a train--twice?! That's exactly what happened to Indian woman Zubin Nisha. Nisha was traveling from Mumbai to Gonda to get to the hospital when she suddenly went into labor, making it the second time in four years that she delivered twins on a train!Continue Reading >
Uno de los temas de discusión más comunes entre las mujeres que quieren ser madres es cuál es la edad correcta para tener hijos. Algunas piensan que es mejor ser madre joven por el tema de la energía que requiere criar niños chiquitos mientras que otras creen que es mejor esperar hasta que una está más madura y establecida económicamente. Y esto es algo que creo que nunca va a cambiar.
De lo que sí estoy segura es que ninguna mujer, sin importar que tan joven cree que es bueno ser madre, estaría de acuerdo con que es una buena idea que una niña quede embarazada a los 12 años y dé a luz a los 13.Continue Reading >
Seguro que toda mujer latina conoce la famosa frase que dice "la belleza cuesta". Y es que, a la mayoría, desde pequeñas nuestras mamás y nuestras abuelas nos enseñaron que para verse bien hay que hacer sacrificios.
Lo malo es que pensando que "para ser bellas hay que ver estrellas" muchas mujeres están dispuestas a someterse a prácticas extremas que pueden dañar su salud o poner en riesgo su vida. Tal y como sucedió con Adriana DeSilva una mamá latina que lamentablemente, perdió la vida tras someterse a varias cirugías estéticas para recuperar su figura.Continue Reading >
Kim Kardashian is ready to finally give birth already, and I really can't blame her. The reality TV queen hasn't' had an easy pregnancy. The girl has gone through pain, health scares, stress from the extremely long divorce with ex-husband Kris Humphries (which was finally finalized) and an insane amount of maternity fashion misses it's not even funny. And to top it off the poor girl is now experiencing incredibly swollen feet which she can barely fit into any of her fancy shoes. Heck, I'd be ready to pop that baby out too!Continue Reading >
When I gave birth to my son a week early it was completely surreal. I mean, pregnancy and labor and delivery are probably always on the surreal side, but I was almost in shock that it had actually happened. Throughout most of my pregnancy, I had a feeling that my baby was going to arrive early, but my strategy for dealing with the fear of labor and delivery was simply to pretend that it wasn't going to happen. During the week before I delivered I might have been intentionally oblivious to some degree, but there were also a few signs that labor was soon to come that I just didn't think twice about. Now keep in mind that these things can mean absolutely nothing for some women, but they could very well be cues that your baby's birth is not far off. Here are four signs that your baby will be arriving soon:Continue Reading >
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 >
Practicing good habits while pregnant can be extremely tricky. While we all know we need to avoid tobacco and alcohol, sometimes the changes aren't so cut and clear.
A lot of the foods usually good for us become dangerous when we're carrying a baby. As a Latina woman, I had to make some drastic changes to my diet when I became pregnant. I had to cut out a lot of the foods from my culture that I thought were good for me. I figured, since these foods had protein and calcium, they would be healthy and needed to create strong bones. But when you're carrying a baby, you have to be extra careful.
It's extremely important to know which foods are dangerous to eat. So that when the time comes where your hormones are going crazy and the cravings start kicking in, you can plan around this and find alternatives.Continue Reading >
