The woman Jude Law impregnated last winter while shooting Sherlock Holmes, Samantha Burke, is due in October and expects to cash in on her famous little spawn.
Snapshot: I was three months pregnant with my first child. I was on my knees in front of the toilet bowl, having just thrown up for the sixth time that day. Suddenly, movement at the bathroom door caught my eye. He was standing there. Naked. Touching himself. "Are you done yet?" he asked impatiently. "C'mon baby—let's get it on." Read: Having A Baby Improved My Sex Life My stomach lurched. Tears filled my eyes. "I'll be there in second," I replied looking down. I pulled myself up off the floor, brushed my teeth and proceeded to our bedroom to fulfill my 'wifely duty.'
Katherine Heigl and husband Josh Kelley were spotted out in Beverly Hills on Saturday shopping for a baby stroller. Paparazzi caught the couple outside high-end baby boutique Bel Bambini. The Grey's Anatomy actress was wearing a loose tunic dress—perfect for hiding an emerging baby bump.
Kourtney Kardashian, like a lot of reality stars, has chosen to be open about almost everything in her life, and her recent unplanned pregnancy is no exception. But while some people have chosen to criticize her bun-in-the-oven candidness in recent weeks, we can't help but applaud it. In fact, we think there's a lot we can learn from Kourtney Kardashian and her situation.
The swine flu has been dominating headlines in 2009. The travel industry has been thrown for a loop. Lebanese men have been warned to not participate in certain customs and who can forget Speidi wearing the surgical masks? Now pregnant women are said to be at greater risk for the virus. We need a miracle against H1N1 pronto. Russians claim that Welsh whiskey is that miracle. But where does this leave pregnant women?
The very astute crew over at The Frisky (I only get 40% of my news from them) have some wonderful news for us: according to science, pulling out is almost as effective as condoms. While the effectiveness I refer to is exclusively applicable to birth control, the findings are a little shocking. Per these scientists, "typical use" of condoms results in pregnancy slightly less frequently than "typical use" of pull and pray (also called the withdrawal method). "Typical use" for both coitus interruptus and raincoat-wearing includes some degree of incorrect or neglectful use; i.e. condom coming off, guy finishing earlier than expected, etc.
Often, a woman's birth control choice is based on word-of-mouth from friends (which pill relieved monster cramps; which procedure was covered by insurance), familiar routines unchanged since college (same old pink pill case) or even TV commercials (seen the ones that make taking birth control look like boarding a Caribbean cruise?). But as women cross over into the years beyond 30, there are new options that go beyond basic oral contraception and condoms.
