“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.”

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 »
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]
You know what is just the worst? When pregnant ladies go out in public. Yeah, their selfless maternal giving and their miracle of life — it is really not something other people should have to watch. Please, shield us from the inhumanity. Keep reading »
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.
