18 Reasons your post-baby body is amazing

post

Confession: I stopped dreaming about my pre-pregnancy body when I had my second child. Like most expectant moms, I gained a ton of weight after my first baby and was too busy and happy to notice until I became pregnant again. I did the math and didn't want to gain that much weight on top of the weight I already had. So, I stopped comparing my body to the one I had before baby número uno and just focused on keeping the same measures I had after my first child. I realized that the waist line wasn't that important as long as I felt happy and confident.

Scott PHOTOS

Oh my goodness, I just got done watching Scott Disick react to Kourtney Kardashian telling him that she is pregnant with their third child and let me tell you that his reaction is not at all what I expected. The video is a sneak peek of the upcoming Sunday episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that it looks like Disick got sucker punched and had the air knocked out of him. I mean the poor guy can't even form a sentence afterwards.

Kourtney and Scott are parents to 4-year-old Mason and 2-year-old Penelope and supposedly this was a planned pregnancy, but you certainly can't tell from the way that Scott takes it. Take a look for yourself and you tell me what you think.

4 Types of contractions you didn't know about

Contractions. Honestly, I hear the word and I hold my breath! When I was pregnant with my first child and I had my first "contraction" at two months, I called 911. I'm not kidding! It was early in my pregnancy, my husband was away on business and I didn't know what to do. I was helplessly lost and didn't have any books or guidance about "What to Expect When You're Expecting, so I panicked and dialed. It turned out that I wasn't in labor (obviously) and my belly's muscles were just stretching.

I learned that contractions are normal and they all don't mean that the baby is coming out anytime soon. If you are pregnant or planning to be, read on so you won't drive the emergency phone operator crazy like I did.
