I will be the very first to admit how to difficult it can be to stick with any sort of exercise regime through the first harrowing months of pregnancy. And of course, once you start slacking, it only becomes easier to do so. I know marathon runners, who gave up on exercise altogether while pregnant! Thanks to morning sickness and some early bleeding, I myself abandoned most attempts at exercise (other than walking) for at least four or five months when I was pregnant with my son.Continue Reading >
New dad Anthony Stuart is a graphic designer. So it only makes sense that when he found out he and his wife, Kristi, were expecting, he decided he wanted to introduce his baby to the world in the most creative way possible!

OMG! I can't even imagine it! But a mom went from having four kids to having nine in less than five minutes when she delivered quintuplets last Friday in Arizona. Evonne Derrico knew she was pregnant with quadruplets, but it wasn't until the later that a fifth baby was discovered in her womb. The 33-year-old mom, who already had two boys and two girls, has now added two more boys and three more girls to her family.Continue Reading >

I don't know if it was my training as a journalist, but once it was confirmed I was pregnant, I went to my first OB appointment armed with a long list of questions.
