I’ve had a couple false alarms when my period has been poky and I’ve been freaked for a few days that I might be pregnant. So it boggles my mind that there are women on this Earth that do not know they are pregnant until their baby is basically crowning.

Take, for instance, the British soldier who gave birth at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan after not realizing she was pregnant for seven/eight months. The Fiji-born woman, who is being kept anonymous, was deployed to the Afghan frontlines in March as a gunner in the Royal Artillery and gave birth unexpectedly to a five-weeks premature baby earlier this week. The soldier did not realize she was pregnant until she started having terrible stomach cramps, which turned out to be contraction associated with childbirth. Keep reading »

Smoking while pregnant isn’t defensible.

But you know what else isn’t defensible? Pointing a gun at a pregnant woman. Keep reading »

No, that’s not the world’s creepiest ice cube — it’s “Shape Of An Angel,” a 3D ultrasound. An MRI scans your fetus and a tiny replica is printed out in a 3D printer, hovering midair in clear resin and encased in a jewelry box. (Because why not display your 3D fetus to guests inside a jewelry box?) Oh, and the whole thing will set you back $1,230.

Growing life is beautiful, yes, but a tiny plastic fetal token strikes me as raising the fetus to the level of fetish object. I hope this doesn’t take off, because looking at ultrasounds just got that much more uncomfortable! [Geekosystem]

Bar Installs Pregnancy Test Vending Machine In The Ladies’ Room

I don’t know what else is going on in Pub 500 in Mankato, Minnesota, but apparently it’s enough to warrant the installation of the “first ever” pregnancy test vending machine in the ladies’ room. I’m kidding, actually: it was not Pub 500 that installed the pee sticks for their lady patrons — they came courtesy of Healthy Brains For Children, which seeks to reduce fetal alcohol syndrome in kids. Women can buy pregnancy tests for $3 in dispensers similar to the ones that sell tampons and pads. The group hopes that more women will learn if they are pregnant before getting their bun in the oven totally sauced. Eventually the group hopes to install the vending machines in malls, gas stations and gyms as well. The ladies room location seems weird to me and possibly has the potential of causing more problems than it solves. Like, I can just see drunk couples at the bar getting into arguments over “Oh my God, are you pregnant? Why did you just buy a pregnancy test in the bathroom?” kind of stuff. And I’m especially confused about the Minnesota location. Shouldn’t this pilot program have been installed in Seaside Heights? [CityPages]

Adele Just Wants To Line Dance & Other Weirdo Pregnancy Cravings Of The Stars

We always knew Adele had a set of pipes, but it turns out she’s got dancing feet, too. The pregnant songstress was recently seen at a line-dancing class with some of her friends. Adele apparently picked up the country dance style after traveling throughout the U.S. and liked it so much she brought a line-dancing CD to bring home. That’s pretty ballsy for a seven-months-pregnant woman. But hey, whatever! She’s getting her exercise in. [The Sun UK]

Adele isn’t the only celeb doing something kinda-weird while she’s knocked up. Check out all the preggo celebs in Hollywood who had their pickles and ice cream on speed dial!

Rachel Zoe is all, “This. Is. Bananas. Your. Baby. Is. In. Your. Belly.” And Molly Sims is all, “Crazy lady, stop touching me.” Or at least that’s what I imagine was going on between these two at the opening of Valentino’s flagship store on Rodeo Drive earlier this week. What’s your guess? Tell us in the comments!
