Yes, getting your nails done while pregnant could make your baby dumber. Just when we thought that pregnant moms had enough items to cross off their list, now they manage to add the one thing that makes women feel pretty and pampered! The details are even more shocking.

Mamá da a luz a bebecita en el lugar más insólito del mundo

baby

Cuando te llega la hora, te llega. Y no hablo de la hora de morir. Hablo de la hora de nacer, porque salvo que te programen una cesárea, o te hagan una operación de emergencia, venir al mundo es algo que no podemos controlar. Tal como le ocurrió a una bebecita que no se esperó a llegar al hospital ni a que su mamá tuviera una comadrona asistiéndola en el momento del alumbramiento. Y es que nació así, sin anestesia ni nada, en un estacionamiento dentro de la cabina de un taxi. Lo que no me vas a creer es qué tipo de estacionamiento era.

According to new research by the University of Chicago, most women will not lose the baby weight, especially if she started out overweight before conceiving. The better shape the mom-to-be was pre-conception, the better chance she has of bouncing back to her pre-pregnancy weight. I have one thing to say to this research: DUH!

Try writing their birth times and dates in short form and you'll see both girls were born at 10:11 a.m. on 12/13/14, making for a perfectly linear sequence of digits.

25 Vibrant baby names inspired by colors

baby

It's easy to think that baby names inspired by colors are a new trendy faddish sort of thing, but really they're not. As our friends over at Baby Name Wizard point out, "Between the floral names of the Victorian era and the beloved jewel names of the turn of the century" parents have been digging color names for quite some time.

What is kind of brand new about the color name choices people are making now is that we've opened up the whole box of crayons, so to speak. Instead of sticking to traditional color names, we've become more adventurous in our choices. What I love about this trend and trust me that I love this trend (I named both of my daughters after colors) is that it's beautiful and not as weird as so many make it out to be. I mean colors are all around us and they have always inspired us, why wouldn't they inspire our baby name choices?
