Jackie: There’s rumors that Sutton is not a boy. Have you heard that? Kevin: Only from my friends, cause I haven’t told them so I haven’t told them anything and my wife hasn’t spoken to anybody about anything, so… Bender: Cause word has it that she’ll reveal the news the week your cd drops. Kevin: Um, I don’t know, that might be all rumors too. Jackie: Isn’t that strange when you hear that, when you have a child and people tell you the sex is a different one. Kevin: Yeah it’s crazy. Well it’s even crazier when people are telling me my child’s name. Bender: Oh so Sutton is not the baby’s name. Kevin: Oh yeah there you go.

Benefits and Risks While an epidural has obvious benefits for many women, it is not without risks. An epidural may cause:Did you have an epidural when you gave birth? And for the Mothers-to-be, are you considering on getting an epidural or is your birth plan to go natural, experiencing the full childbirth? pregnancy epidural shot pain pregnant pregnancy weekly labor baby newborn birth plan question of the week
- A prolonged labor. Some research has shown that epidural labor takes, on average, an hour longer than natural childbirth. If labor stalls after the epidural, your doctor may inject pitocin to make your contractions stronger, which can overstimulate your uterus and cause severe contractions.
- Your blood pressure to drop severely. This happens in approximately one to two percent of cases and can cause your baby’s heart rate to drop. Your doctor will give you intravenous fluids before the epidural and throughout the rest of your labor to prevent this.
- You to be unable to feel contractions or push. This may necessitate the use of forceps or vacuum to deliver your baby and increases the likelihood of having a c-section.
- Your baby to move into the wrong position (malposition) due to relaxed uterine and pelvic muscles. However, some experts believe that the baby may already be in the wrong position, causing additional pain that prompts the woman to ask for an epidural.
- You to have a seizure. However, this happens very rarely.
"They tend to put on skirts instead of pants, show more skin and generally dress more fashionably," said Martie Haselton, a communication studies and psychology expert at the University of California Los Angeles who led the study.
Writing in the journal Hormones and Behavior, Haselton and colleagues said their findings disproved the conventional wisdom that women are unique among animals in concealing, even from themselves, when they are most fertile.
Some animals release powerful scents when ready to mate, while others display skin color changes, but human ovulation is notoriously difficult to detect. This is attested to by the frequency of unintended pregnancy, as well as test kits marketed to women wishing to become pregnant but unaware of the likeliest time to conceive.
Haselton's team said their study showed the cues are there, even if men and women are not consciously aware of them.
Women usually ovulate on the 15th day of their menstrual cycles, and this day is when they are the most fertile. Ovulation is easily detected using urine tests, and Haselton's team used such a test to check fertility in their study.
They asked 30 university students to come to their lab for a test, without letting them know the nature of the experiment. "We asked them some things about food, for example," Haselton said in a telephone interview.
The women came back several times over the course of a month and were photographed twice -- once in their fertile phase and another time in their least-fertile phase. The faces in the photographs were blacked out.
WHO LOOKS HOT?
The researchers asked 42 men and women, some older than the volunteers, to assess these photographs by asking, "In what photo is the person trying to look more attractive?"
The judges chose the photograph taken during the women's fertile phases 60 percent of the time, Haselton said. "This is well beyond chance. They were pretty consistent," she said.
"One of the things we found pretty interesting is that people sort of have their personal style, almost like their uniform," she added. "The women would show up to the lab wearing something pretty close to what they wore before, but embellished."
For example, one woman wore loose knit leggings and a tank top in both photos. "In her high fertility photograph, she would be wearing a very pretty tank top and she was wearing more jewelery. The difference was quite subtle," Haselton said.
The fertile women did not necessarily dress more provocatively, Haselton noted. "We did see a little bit more skin. It was my impression that the women were just dressing a little bit more fashionably but not sexier."
Haselton also was interested to note what did not happen.
"There's a popular notion that when women approach menstrual onset, they get out their bloated clothes and they pull out their sweats," she said. "But we didn't find that to be the case."
Haselton's team had earlier reported that women were more likely to flirt and look at attractive men when ovulating.Source: Yahoo! News pregnancy fashion ovulating pregnancy weekly research women

The study by the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in London indicates that the offspring of mothers who fed on unhealthy food with poor nutritional value during gestation and lactation display poorly developed muscles in comparison with those fed on a more balanced diet, the New Scientist reported Thursday on its website.
According to the research, rats that were fed doughnuts, muffins, chocolates, crisps, cheese, biscuits and sweets during pregnancy and lactation gave birth to offspring with increased fatness and muscle waste.
The offspring also displayed signs of insulin resistance, a condition that precedes the early onset of type-2 diabetes as early as 3 weeks after birth.
"Our research suggests that healthy eating habits should start during the fetal life of an individual. Future mothers need to be aware that pregnancy is not the time to over-indulge on sugary-fatty treats," Professor Neil Stickland from the College was quoted as saying.
Eating large quantities of junk food when pregnant and breastfeeding could cause irreversible damage to their unborn children and send their offspring on the road to obesity and early onset of diabetes, said Neil.
Researchers from the College are currently investigating the longer- term effects of a maternal junk food diet on the offspring's development and health as well as the possible effects of such diets on promoting hyperactive behavior in offspring.
