When Susan Barden, from Crawley, West Sussex was pregnant, she began to suffer from crippling pre-natal depression. Before she even knew she was pregnant, she had feelings of severe doom and despair. She was moody, grouchy and unhappy. The depression got so bad that she was having suicidal thoughts by week 11 of the pregnancy and by the third month, her doctor prescribed anti-depressants.
Honestly, I had never heard of pre-natal depression but I know all sorts of unexpected things happen when you're pregnant. I am much more familiar with post partum depression. It is believed that pre-natal depression is brought on by a combination of fluctuating hormones and the stress of the life changes ahead. Studies suggest it is actually more prevalent than post partum depression, estimating that one in seven women in the United Kingdom suffers depression while pregnant.
I'm always so impressed by moms who are able to bounce back shortly after pregnancy. How the heck did they lose that post-partum belly so fast? Sure, they followed a healthy diet before they gave birth and of course they started working out afterwards, but that's usually not all. In fact, most chicas (Latinas especially) credit fajas to help them slim down their midsection and apparently they really work!
Pregnancy is the most nerve wracking experience for many women. We tend to worry about everything and some of us have the doctor on speed dial! It's such an unknown territory and the lack of sleep doesn't help our nerves. Most of us worry about things that are out of our control such as birth defects, prematurity or miscarriage. There are things we really need to worry about because affects our well being as well as the baby. Read on!
Everyone seems to have an opinion about breastfeeding these days. Wannabe pinup model Josie Cunningham, best known in her home country as the "UK's most controversial boobs" after using tax payer money to fund plastic surgery has some, um, interesting things to say on the subject. I'm pretty sure that this lady is pretty much a professional troll at this point (she also claimed she was going to have an abortion so she could appear on Big Brother and get famous, but later recanted), but her latest comments about breastfeeding have really made moms mad. Cunningham recently went on a Twitter tirade, blasting breastfeeding as "vile" and saying it was "borderline incestuous." Seriously, what a boob!
No hay noticia que me guste más dar que la del nacimiento de bebés, así que con mucha felicidad te anuncio que Marisol González y Rafa Márquez ya son padres. La pequeña nació en un hospital de Guadalajara y tanto ella como su mamá están en perfecto estado de salud. ¡Qué alegría!
Pero lo mejor fue la velocidad con la que ocurrió el parto. Ni te imaginas cuánto duró. ¿Y te conté el nombre que tiene la bebé?
Pregnancy chisme alert, amigas! This is a juicy one too. Okay, so rumor has it that Mexican singer and actress, Paulina Rubio, might be pregnant. You guys, she might have a little birote in the oven and that's kind of a big deal given that Rubio is not exactly a spring chicken. I mean she looks great, fit, youthful and all, but her ovaries and the rest of her are 43 years old, an age that is considered a bit advanced for pregnancy. Of course it's not impossible nor unheard of to get pregnant in your 40s, but I'm simply bringing up the obvious because it's, well, OBVIOUS.
So back to the pregnancy rumor and some more details about it ...
Estoy segura de que no fui la única que echó de menos a nuestra querida Adamari López en las pantallas de televisión todas las mañanas. La estrella boricua estuvo de vacaciones por España, presentando la barriga a la familia de su pareja, el bailarín y coreógrafo Toni Costa.
Adamari López regresó con una cara más feliz que nunca, descansada (no me puedo imaginar lo que los madrugonazos para llegar a Un nuevo día le deben estar costando) y con una sorpresota: la panza le creció muchísimo en 10 días. ¡Tienes que ver la foto!
Shelby Magnani was having some painful stomach cramps and she decided to go to the nearest walk-in clinic in a neighborhood in Ankeny, Iowa. It turned out that Shelby was very much pregnant with twins and had no idea. When the emergency doctors performed an ultrasound they realized that the babies were monoamniotic and they scheduled an emergency C-section. Baby Ava and her twin sister Anna were born small but otherwise healthy and will go home in a couple of weeks.
Es un hecho que Ninel Conde y sus visitas al gimnasio no terminan y eso que le falta poquísimo tiempo para dar a luz al esperado Emmanuel. Publicó en su redes sociales un vídeo donde se le ve haciendo ejercicio a lado de su entrenadora que es la que está dando los consejitos a todas sus fans. ¡Si se puede! y a los casi 9 meses yo le agregaría si se puede, si se quiere. Es de admirar la dedicación y la disciplina de la cantante para tratar de mantener su figura y estoy segura que se verá como Lola la esposa de Aaron Díaz. Te apuesto a que saldrá del hospital casi con los mismos jeans con que comenzó el embarazo…¿Te muestro el vídeo?
