Smoking While Preggo May Make Your Baby Psycho

I know we all have “Mad Men” fever these days. On the off chance that you have become desensitized while watching Betty Draper suck those cancer sticks and throw back cocktails with her bun in the oven, let me remind you once again that smoking while pregnant is hazardous to the baby. Wait? You already knew that? But in case you need just one more good reason to quit lighting up while knocked up, a new U.K. study about smoking while pregnant is likely to scare the s**t out of you.

An Already Pregnant Woman Somehow Manages To Get Knocked Up


Julia Grovenburg of Arkansas is giving the woman with two vaginas a run for her money in the race for Medical Anomaly of the Year. She was already pregnant when she went for a sonogram and—surprise!—the doc discovered that a second, younger, baby was in there as well. In other words, she’s carrying two babies that aren’t twins—they were conceived three weeks apart. This phenomenon is called “superfetation” and it’s very rare. Pretty freaky, no?

Hot New Trend: Shotgun Marriages!

So, Khloe Kardashian is getting married this Sunday to brand-new boyfriend/fiancé Lamar Odom. Raise your hand if you think she’s knocked up. Everyone? That’s what I thought. If Khloe is with child, she is following in the grand footsteps of big sis Kourtney, who found out she was pregnant earlier this summer and is now engaged to the baby’s father. Is it just me, or is this totes retro? Accidental pregnancy? A super speedy marriage is the answer to all your problems! Khloe and Kourtney would hardly be alone. Ashlee Simpson married Pete Wentz then disclosed that she was pregnant with his child. So did Jessica Alba and Cash Warren, as well as Christina Milian and The Dream. I gotta say, and maybe this is because I’m not much of a traditionalist, but if I found out I was pregs and was going to keep the baby, I wouldn’t necessarily rush to the altar, even if I was in love with the father. What about you? Keep reading »

HOTmilk Lingerie Sexes Up Hot Mamas

I’ve got a soft spot for this lingerie commercial for New Zealand-based brand HOTmilk (I know, unfortunate name). The sexy line of underthings is targeted at pregnant women and is about “empowering women, to remind them that they are beautiful confident and SEXY,” even when their stomachs are stretched to epic proportions and their nipples are leaking. While I agree with Broadsheet that we should be celebrating the beauty of the pregnant female form through other means than expensive lingerie, I think it’s refreshing to see a sexy commercial where a woman’s swollen belly is on full display and a hot sexy man is losing his s**t over it.

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep—I am overcome with heartbreak knowing that the man of my dreams is off the market. This unemployed father of seven children by seven baby mamas is preparing for a shotgun wedding to the eighth! Being single is hard, and when I think of the kind of guy I’m looking for, I know that Brit Keith MacDonald embodies all of the qualities that I dream of.

The Woman Who Claimed To Be Preggers With 12 Kids Totally Lied!

The 34-year-old Tunisian woman who claimed to be pregnant with 12 kids—six boys and six girls—is a fraud. Although this gal said she’s nine months preggers with duodecaplets, docs say, “There’s absolutely nothing about her appearance which indicates this.” In fact, health peeps think the only thing the woman is pregnant with is “psychological problems.” The unidentified non-mother has supposedly gone into hiding. [Fox News] — When are people going to realize that Nadya Suleman is not someone they should emulate? Keep reading »

Woman Has Baby On Pavement In Front Of Hospital

When mother-of-three Carmen Blake, 27, unexpectedly went into labor, she called the hospital across the street from her house in Leicester, England, but was refused an ambulance. She was told to take a bath then walk over. Blake got in the tub but realized the baby was going to come, like, right away. She called the hospital back, but they still said they weren’t going to send anyone out. So the mother tried to hustle on over. She made it across the street before the baby, Mariah, started coming. Luckily, a physiotherapist happened to be walking by and was able to help deliver the baby on the pavement. The hospital is “disappointed that Ms. Blake was not happy with the advice and care she received.” Yeah, understatement of the year, guys. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
