For some people, a 27 week pregnancy update might seem like a random week to choose but the 27 week mark has always been a momentous milestone for me. I don’t want to be morbid here but the survival rate for babies born at 27 weeks suddenly increases (I think it’s due to lung development). And while we obviously want baby to stay put for another 12-13 weeks, it’s a reassurance that if anything did happen now or I suddenly went into labour, there’s a high chance the baby would be OK. Pregnancy is all wonderful and exciting, but it’s also a really worrying time because you’re constantly hoping everything is going to be OK. So it’s at 27 weeks that I’m starting to relax and really start planning for our future with a baby girl! Whoop whoop! Update: I’m actually publishing this at almost 30 weeks because it’s taken me 3 weeks to get more than 30 seconds at my computer! I also didn’t have any nice photos to include but … [Read more...] about My 27 week pregnancy update with Baby #3!

Diabetes has plenty of early signs, but they’re subtle enough that you might not notice.“It’s not like you wake up one day and all of a sudden you’re thirsty, hungry, and [going to the bathroom] all the time,” says Melissa Joy Dobbins, RD, a certified diabetes educator in Illinois and a spokesperson for the American Association of Diabetes Educators. “It picks up gradually.”Indeed, “most people are unaware that they have diabetes in its early or even middle phases,” says Aaron Cypess, MD, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and staff physician at Joslin Diabetes Center. Just because you’re not keyed in doesn’t mean you’re immune from problems associated with diabetes, he adds. The longer you go without controlling diabetes, the greater your risk for heart disease, kidney disease, amputation, blindness, and other serious complications. “We recommend that people with risk factors for … [Read more...] about 10 silent symptoms of diabetes you might be missing
By now, we've all become accustomed to royal protocol. Conservative hemlines, traditional cuts and pantyhose are an absolute must for the royals, while nude nails and fresh-faced looks make up a long list of beauty rules.Queen Elizabeth has set quite the precedent during her 65-year reign as monarch -- and these mandates are not something that the Windsor family takes lightly. But when it comes to royal pregnancies, it seems that some of these royal rules go out the (palace) window. You may have noticed that Duchess Kate's pregnancy style quickly evolved to include protocol-pushing short dresses and skirts the second she became pregnant with Prince George. Remember *that* polka dot dress when she visited the Harry Potter set at 6 months pregnant?Apparently, there's a reason the then mom-to-be showed a little leg. 17 PHOTOS Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy style See Gallery Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy style Kate was a vision in … [Read more...] about Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle wear shorter dresses during their pregnancies for one reason

By Amy Kaufman Los Angeles Times Published 10:04 PM EST Feb 18, 2019 PARK CITY, Utah — When Dr. Ruth Westheimer was first asked if she wanted to be the subject of a documentary, her answer was swift and decisive: Absolutely not. She was too busy, and besides, she’d talked plenty about her decades-long career as a renowned sex therapist. She simply wasn’t interested. At all. But then producer Rafael Marmor sent her a link to one of his prior films called “No Place on Earth.” Instantly, the title resonated with her. During the Holocaust, when she was just 10, she’d been separated from her parents in Germany and sent on a Kindertransport to an orphanage in Switzerland. Her family’s decision saved her life; they were all killed by the Nazis. But at the end of World War II, when she and the other surviving orphans were transported to Israel, that was how she felt — like there was nowhere in the world where she belonged. “So a few … [Read more...] about Dr. Ruth is 90.5 and living her best life, but an Oscar would be nice
