Chocolate Everyday Keeps the Doctor Away

While we might joke that chocolate is a lifesaver, but it actually is! A new study from Yale University found that pregnant women who eat chocolate every day dramatically reduce the risk of preeclampsia, a disorder that raises a pregnant woman’s blood pressure, causes premature births, and can result in death. But there’s also hope for those without a bun in the oven — the treats contain theobromine, which helps with persistent coughing. Hacking up a lung never sounded so sweet! [Daily Mail]

    The # 1 sign of pregnancy is a missed period. It might sound super obvious, but unless women are on the pill they can sometimes miscalculate their period and not recognize when they’re late.

    Pregnant, Transgender Man Appears On Oprah

    A few weeks ago we wrote about Thomas Bettie, the Female-to-Male transgender man who’s currently six months pregnant. Yesterday, as the news of Thomas’ pregnancy spread like wildfire through the media (initially his story was reported in The Advocate, which everyone seems to be forgetting in lieu of the fact that People has jumped on it), he appeared on Oprah with his wife Nancy. It was kind of an awkward interview, honestly, because the audience had no warning and appeared flabbergasted the whole time, while Thomas and Nancy are clearly not media whores — they just want to get their story out into the public so they can go on with their lives, without scrutiny. I really do think this story is wonderful and phenomenal and give so much credit to Thomas and Nancy for being brave and telling their remarkable story. Oh, and as a side note, I totally think Thomas makes for a pretty good-lookin’ dude, but he was really hot as a woman too. Clip above. Keep reading »
