ejercicios

El ejercicio nos ayuda mantener el tono muscular y fomenta el desarrollo de todas las funciones de nuestro organismo. ¿Pero qué pasa si estás embarazada? ¿Cuáles son los ejercicios más convenientes en la etapa de gestación?

adamari VIDEO

Durante esta época de celebraciones navideñas, ¡qué muchos gustitos nos damos los latinos entre fiesta y fiesta! Yo gozo de la algarabía y soy la primera en alborotar a todos sin excusa necesaria para festejar, cantar y baliar. Eso sí, ahora que estoy embarazada hay algo a lo que le digo un no rotundo.

The self-described "español-riqueño" dancer is quite obviously in love with Adamari López and over the moon about becoming a father. I'm mean, he is so taken by the experience that he quite literally gushed on Instagram about it and it might be the sweetest daddy-to-be moment I have ever seen online. He's got me all choked up because I am a sap for men who are not ashamed of expressing their love publicly. And then add on to that how excited he is about meeting his baby girl, Alaïa, I kid you not, I'm swooning. Look at this!

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.
