Claire Carter from Lancashire, England was allergic to being pregnant. I'm not joking! She suffered from an extremely rare condition called Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) which is a liver disorder few pregnant women develop when their bodies can't function properly with all those pregnancy hormones. The condition is very serious because affects the bile function of the liver which can cause premature and still births.
Confirmed! Babies do have a lot of fun in the womb. That may explain why some of them don't even want to come out at all it seems like! They are just super comfortable inside their mama's belly. No mystery there, right? Well, now there is an ultrasound picture to prove it. Reddit user Meancloth shared with the world the image of her unborn baby giving the thumps up! Of course the cutest picture ever went viral and received two million visitors in twenty four hours. You have to see this cuteness after the break!
Zoe Saldana is just like us! Well, sort of. The 36-year-old mother-to-be isn't shying away from her junk food cravings while pregnant with her first child (photo after the break). The Hollywood actress was snapped enjoying a bag of Doritos while hitting up a Target store in West Hollywood, California. Saldana, who is about four months along, recently confirmed her pregnancy while nominating her husband Marco Perego for the ALS ice bucket challenge. We bet Saldana doesn't get to indulge in junk food that often so she must be loving the chance to do it during her pregnancy.
I've heard some pretty crazy labor stories in my time. From moms giving birth in airplanes to others who spent days in labor--even weeks! Most of them are so intense they'd make you rethink having a baby, but Vanessa DeLeon's would probably just make you smile. It's the most relatable labor story of them all. The now mom of four from Houston Texas, was right in the middle of enrolling her 4-year-old in preschool when her water suddenly broke!
Ready, set, push! We have all been there at the birthing room, ready to release our baby and feel normal again. At the end of it all you'll have a crazy story to tell and everyone is eager to hear it. I don't know how adventurous your birth experience was, but these stories will make you laugh, cringe and say what? Some are even surreal!
When Melissa Church had her children two at a time, I bet she didn't think she'd one day have grandchildren two at a time as well--one from each child on the same day! The Indiana woman has adult twins who each welcomed a child just an hour apart on Monday. Her son and daughter were in two separate hospitals in Owensville, Indiana so grandma decided to stay by her daughter's side while her husband traveled between the two centers.
Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese is the latest designer to jump aboard the maternity lingerie bandwagon. Yes, maternity lingerie.
Maternity brands are finally getting hip to the idea that new moms and expectant mamis like lingerie just as much as the next gal, only they often struggle find undies and bras tailor-made to suit their specific needs. But no more! These days, hot mamas can choose from a wide array of mom-friendly thongs, camisoles, sexy nursing bras, and other lingerie staples in sizes and styles that'll hug and caress their lovely lady bumps and humps.Continue Reading >

We told you that when Christina Aguilera and her fianacé Matt Rutler had a baby shower to celebrate the upcoming birth of their first child together (it's a girl BTW), they had a cake that can only be described as graphic. We knew the cake featured what pretty much looks like a rendition of an entirely nude Christina Aguilera giving birth with the words, "Push X-tina, push!"
We didn't show you a picture when we first found out because we couldn't find one at the time, but now we can and you know you want to take a look! Before you look, you might want to make sure your kiddies aren't in the room for this one unless they are older or you are ready to explain the miracle of birth to them in detail.
Your wedding day is one of those occasions that as the bride, you expect to be the center of attention. In 26-year-old Emma Rotherham's case, her wedding ceremony went as she planned, but little did she know that her 29-year-old pregnant sister, Lucy Morris, was in labor the WHOLE time.
Morris walked her sister down the aisle as one of her bridesmaids and kept quiet about being in pain from the contractions to avoid stealing the spotlight from her sister's special day. That's so selfless of her, but we have NO IDEA how she managed to do that!Continue Reading >
