Imagine you are walking down a busy city street when the pregnant woman in front of you suddenly starts giving birth. This is what happened to 39-year-old New Yorker Polly McCourt, who went into labor Monday afternoon. The Upper East side resident rushed out of her apartment building and asked for her doorman's help to hail her a cab to the hospital.
The funny part is that her baby decided she wanted to come out right before the cab even arrived. In other words, McCourt gave birth right on the corner of her street!Continue Reading >
¡Qué feliz debe estar nuestro querido Jaime Camil! Se le está dando su más preciado deseo: Ser padre por segunda vez. Con su esposa Heidi Balvanera, el artista mexicano anunció que están en la dulce espera de un hermanito para su pequeña Elena y que esto es lo mejor que les podía pasar en la vida. Me alegra mucho por ellos. Me consta que el actor de Qué pobres tan ricos no hacía más que hablar del tema del embarazo.Continue Reading >
A Florida dad was forced to deliver his own baby this past weekend--not because they didn't make it the hospital, but because a maternity ward mix-up left them without a doctor or nurse! Say what?! How could that have possibly happened?
It all started on Saturday after Zaheera Ali and his wife, Indira, arrived at the hospital after experiencing contractions. After a brief waiting period, they were moved to the delivery room, where a doctor felt labor was stalling and decided to speed things up by giving her an induction drug. That's when things started spinning out of control.Continue Reading >
Las dos únicas veces que tuve relaciones sexuales con el papá de mis hijos sin cuidarme, a las 38 semanas y tres días traje al mundo a dos criaturas que por coincidencia hasta pesaron lo mismo. Sé que esto parece increíble, pero juro por mis dos niños que ocurrió exactamente como te lo estoy contando. Así que cuento mis bendiciones. Pero se de mujeres que no corren con la misma suerte y pasan meses tratando de quedar embarazadas. Por eso cuando encontré esta lista de todo lo que podemos hacer para aumentar la probabilidad de embarazarnos corrí a compartirla porque me pareció utilísima.Continue Reading >
The bond between a woman and her newborn baby is beautiful and often indescribable. But I don't think it has been more plainly depicted than in a super touching video that has recently gone viral of a just-born infant and mom.
The clip, posted to YouTube last week, captures a mom and her baby, just minutes after she gave birth via C-section…and it's so moving, it's sure to bring tears to your eyes!Continue Reading >
For many women who have decided to put their babymaking years behind them, tubal ligation seems like a great option. You won't have to remember birth control pills, schedule appointments for shots or IUDs or track your ovulation. You can simply have sex whenever you want without worrying about becoming pregnant. Of course, that all sounds wonderful, and it is for some, but it's a big decision to make. Here are some things you should consider before going under the knife.Continue Reading >
This video is so sweet. You've got to watch it. It features a very pregnant woman being lovingly if somewhat ferociously protected by a dog. I particularly love it because I know firsthand how dedicated and protective dogs can be when it comes to pregnant women. I met my brother-in-law's dog when I was very pregnant and going through some difficulties and, let me tell you, that dog had just met me, had no reason to care about me and she decided to not leave my side. She would even insist on sleeping with me. Call me crazy, but I know it is because she could somehow sense that I needed the attention and that I was scared.
Anyway, back to this awesome video of a loving dog and the pregnant woman that he loves.Continue Reading >
Girl do I have a juicy chisme for you! Rumor has it, Mexican singer and actress Thalía might be pregnant. Yes, pregnant! No one has peeped a baby bump yet, but the word has been spreading around like crazy. Plus, Thalía has mentioned in the past that she'd love to have a third child. Considering she's already 42, if she's going to get pregnant again there's no better time than now, right?Continue Reading >
Big round of applause to a fast thinking daddy from North Carolina. His name is Paul Dupree. Paul happens to be a trained paramedic. So last week Paul is driving his very pregnant girlfriend, Erin Castro, to the hospital in Lincoln County because she was in labor. Uhhh, I bet you can guess where this story is going, no? Yup, there was no way they were going to make it to the hospital in time, especially when Castro said, to Dupree, "I think the head is out!" So Dupree went into action and saved the day with his mad skills.
It looks like Kim Kardashian still isn't satisfied with her post-pregnancy body. The reality star has lost a ton of weight since she gave birth to baby North with the Atkins diet and she's also claimed she hits the gym like crazy. So I was sort of surprised when I heard she got laser treatment for the stretch marks she's had on her boobs, especially because Kim shows serious cleavage like 24/7. I would have never guessed she was self-conscious about her breasts!Continue Reading >
