Hey, You! Pee On A Stick Before You Drink That Beer!

pregnancy tests bars
  • A Republican (obviously) politician in Alaska wants the state to pay for pregnancy tests in restaurants and bars so women can find out if they are pregnant before drinking. You will be shocked, shocked to know State Senator Pete Kelly opposes abortion and doesn’t want to increase access to contraception because it’s only for women “who don’t want to act responsibly.” Using taxpayer money to put millions of pee-sticks in every establishment that sells alcohol in the state? Responsible. Dudebro literally wants Alaska to become a urination-focused police state where all women are considered to be possible incubators for a fetus. Good luck with that!

An Annapolis woman was robbed while in labor — how’s that for a baby story? According to the AP the woman and her boyfriend were making her way to the hospital when they got held up by three men. Get this — the woman’s boyfriend fled. She is in labor, they’re getting robbed and  he runs away. Let that sink in for a minute.

The robbers tried to make her let him into the apartment, but she didn’t have a key. Instead, they stole her car. Thankfully, police busted them shortly thereafter. (Had they instead noticed she was in labor and taken her in a car to the hospital, we would have the plot of a rom-com on our hands.) No word on how this poor woman is doing, but she deserves all the gold stars. And all the epidurals. It turns out that giving birth on the New York City sidewalk and a nearby local news crew catching it on tape is not the #1 Crap Terrible Horrible Way To Give Birth. [AP] [Image of pregnant belly via Shutterstock]

Mommie Dearest: A Pregnant Person Is A Person First

pregnant woman

Growing up, I thought the perfect host was a combination of Betty Crocker and Donna Reed: perfect clothes, perfect hair, perfect food, and perfect personality all coming together to ensure her guests are well taken care of.

However, Steve Martin, a Republican State Senator from Virginia, has a different take on the what it means to be a good host. He recently received a Valentine’s Day Card from the Virginia Pro-Choice Coalition asking the state Senator to protect women’s reproductive health options — everything from raising healthy children to having access to safe, legal abortion. Martin took it upon himself to reply publicly via his Facebook page. His response originally included the following:

“…I don’t expect to be in the room or will I do anything to prevent you from obtaining a contraceptive. However, once a child does exist in your womb, I’m not going to assume a right to kill it just because the child’s host (some refer to them as mothers) doesn’t want it to remain alive.” Keep reading »

Kelly Clarkson Is Barfing Her Way Through Her First Trimester

“I vomit a good dozen times a day. It’s, like, bad. I vomited before coming out here and I had a peppermint so you didn’t [know].  I’m not even kidding, it’s so bad. It’s so bad. I know it’s like so gross. And that’s the thing, too — you’re not attractive when you’re pregnant. Everybody tells you [that] you glow and you’re hair is pretty and you’re nails are pretty. That’s total crap. My nails are short, my hair still falls out like it’s not all lush and beautiful and I have no glow. Unless it’s, like, something left over from a bad throw up. It’s horrible.”

Newly pregnant Kelly Clarkson (11 weeks!) tossed her cookies backstage on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. I pity the lowly PA who had to clean that one up. And by the way, totally disagree she’s “not attractive” while pregnant! [Celebuzz] [Photo: Pacific Coast News]

Pregnant CrossFit Mom Lea-Ann Ellison Inspires Internet Ire For Lifting Weights At Eight Months

Pregnancy is one of life’s beautiful passages. It’s also when a pregnant woman can never do anything right, according to some people. The latest mom-to-be to get raked over the coals is Lea-Ann Ellison, 35, of California who was photographed lifting heavy weights as part of her Crossfit training … while eight-and-a-half months pregnant.

In a picture posted on Crossfit’s Facebook page, a workout gear-clad Ellison is squatting to lit a Hulk Hogan-sized bodybuilding weight as her pregnant belly hangs below her. She wrote on the caption:

“8 months pregnant with baby number 3 and CrossFit has been my sanity. I have been CrossFitting for 2 1/2 years and…strongly believe that pregnancy is not an illness, but a time to relish in your body’s capabilities to kick ass.”

The Internet reacted badly, to put it mildly. “Sickening,” “crap” and “stupid” are just a few words that Ellison has been called. She’s been told she is putting her unborn child at risk and that she may know a lot about exercise but nothing about being a good parent.  Keep reading »

Twerk It, Mama! (Just Be Careful)

By now we’re all familiar with twerking: hip-shaking, booty-focused dance moves a la Nicki Minaj and (ugh) Miley Cyrus. It’s sexy, it’s silly — and apparently, it’s completely safe for expectant mothers. OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton confirmed to ABC News that twerking is safe for pregnant mommies who won’t let a little morning sickness get in the way of their booty-shakin’. “For the average pregnant woman, dancing and aerobic activity is safe during pregnancy, so therefore Twerking is, too,” she explained. “Pregnancy is not a disease, and women should feel comfortable being active. If something hurts, don’t do it.” So go for it, ladies. Shake that fetus around like a cocktail shaker! [10news.com]

I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant

The moment that changed my life was actually pretty anticlimactic.

I took a pregnancy test. Waited the prescribed amount of time. Looked at the result. Threw the test away without really looking at it.

I knew I wasn’t pregnant. I had gotten the Mirena IUD over the summer –- the single most effective form of birth control outside of sterilization. I had packed on the pounds over the past few months, but as a newlywed who had just resumed eating like a sane person after a summer’s worth of dieting, that was to be expected, right?

It was a good 15 minutes or so later that something clicked in my head. I went back to the bathroom and fished the little white plastic pee-stick out of the trash. I stared at the little line across the window. I looked again at the back of the box. Back to the pee stick. Then the box.

It was positive. What? No. No way. There had to be a mistake. Keep reading »

“A princess should be sexy. She is young, she is beautiful – I would like to create something special for her, but nothing too bold. I would like to prove to the world that Roberto Cavalli can dress a princess. Maybe I would use a print, keeping it young, sophisticated and sexy. Just because you are queen or princess it doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy.”

– Cinderella, watch out. If Robert Cavalli was your fairy godmother, that beautiful blue ball gown would have been a cleavage-bearing bandage dress. As if our dear Duchess of Cambridge didn’t have enough to worry about (it’s not like the heir to the royal throne is growing inside her or anything), she now has to be a “sexy,” according to Cavalli.

Lindsay Lohan Freaks Out The World By Announcing She’s Pregnant

Yesterday, Lindsay Lohan tweeted out “It’s official. Pregnant” in what was intended to be an April Fools’ Day joke. The only problem? This being Lindsay Lohan, she tweeted it at 12:35 am, a full five minutes after the day was over, prompting concerned fans and media from around the world to collectively gasp in horror. The British press in particular initially reported the story as true, until they realized that Lohan was likely pulling a prank. (Phew!) I’m sure her boyfriend, Avi Snow, of the band City of the Sun, loved that. (Unrelated: Does anybody else pine for the simple days of Lohan’s relationship with Sam Ronson? Because I do.)

To add insult to fake baby injury, Lohan was photographed this week slumped under a table in Brazil. She’s supposed to report for rehab (one where allegedly she’ll be allowed to continue to take Adderall, ha!) this week. [The Independent]
