FYI to all pregnant ladies: you can now booze responsibly, sort of. Introducing ArKay, aka “halal whiskey.” ArKay’s website boasts, “this non-alcoholic drink can be considered a soft drink and is suitable for any party occasions.” Alas, whiskey experts have spoken and ArKay doesn’t hold a candle to the real deal. The Scotch Whiskey Association is horrified that the company would even utilize the term “whiskey” in the product’s description and are fighting to keep it out of Europe. The legal affairs director for the SWA even sniffed, ”Such promotion is taking advantage of the high quality reputation of the product that is whiskey, which is a distilled spirit produced from natural ingredients, when it is in fact just a soft drink with artificial flavourings.” (Sheesh, it sounds like he could use a drink!) I can only imagine that ArKay would taste like the watery dregs at the end of a cocktail. But you’ve got to love their tagline: “Don’t drink and drive … unless it’s ArKay!” Pregnant Frisky readers, would you ever drink non-alcoholic whiskey … er, “whiskey”? [Gothamist]

20 Things That Make Pregnancy Terrible

Ah, pregnancy. It’s a beautiful time, isn’t it? The little life you have growing inside of you, the glow you get, the skinny jeans and generous glasses of pinot noir you have to eschew. Okay, so perhaps what I should have said is pregnancy is both a beautiful and frustrating/ugly/weird time. Don’t get me wrong, I feel incredibly grateful to be carrying a baby inside me — and a healthy one at that — but, I cannot tell a lie: There are some real pain-in-the-ass things about being knocked up.

Here are 20 things that really suck about being preggers. Read more…

Mariah Carey Hated Her Pregnant Body

Remember when Mariah Carey painted her pregnant belly with butterflies and tweeted about how happy she was carrying her little twins? It was so cute. But now she’s sort of telling a different side of her pregnancy story, and to be honest, it’s not cute at all. It’s kind of sad. The Grammy winner told Gayle King that she felt like her body looked “rancid” during her gestation and would hide her body from husband Nick Cannon. She went on to say something like it’s important to her to be able to feel her bones and she didn’t like that she couldn’t while she was pregnant.

Feeling her bones? Feeling rancid? Sort of depressing, right? Read more…

Beyonce’s 10 Best Maternity Looks (So Far)

Beyonce’s known for her lavish and constricting performance costumes, but has her style changed now that she’s expecting a little diva? Well, she still goes for lavish, but the silhouette of her garments is much looser. She still dresses the part of “the hottest chick in the game” on the red carpet, proving that pregnancy doesn’t have to decrease style.

I probably won’t win too many fans with this statement, but it’s been on my mind for the past few years. I don’t think second-, third-, fourth-time etc. moms should have a baby shower for every pregnancy. The baby shower should be reserved for new moms only!
