    You Will Absolutely Poop When You Push | Week 40 of Pregnancy

    (upbeat music) – Holy crap. This is it, you made it. And you grew a baby and it’s the size of a baby, or I guess if you want to keep this whole comparison thing going, well I was saving this for my lunch but it’s the size of this artisanal loaf of bread. Which you can have a small bite of before you have to stop eating and drinking before you go into labor. Ugh. Sorry (laughs) if this is a surprise, but it’s a safety precaution in case you may need anesthesia for any complications. And definitely not because you might AKA will absolutely poop when you push.…

    Surprise babies: the women who didn’t know they were pregnant

    I had heard of people having kids in that surprise sort of way but I never thought that it would happen to me. A lot of people have nine months to prepare for a baby, whereas we had two weeks at the most. I went to the bathroom, and there was like just a weird pain and he just like came out. My name’s Lara and I’m 23 and 15 months ago I had a surprise baby. I was always super-ambitious with my career and I wanted to own my own business. I was just studying and going out with friends and I was planning a year of trip. The…

    “If all men got pregnant, it’d be taken more seriously” – behind the scenes of Seahorse

    This is a film about me having a baby. But what I feel like I’m going through isn’t me having a baby or pregnancy, it’s like a much more fundamental, total loss of myself. So I’m Freddy McConnell and Seahorse is a film about how I became a dad and how as a trans man I chose pregnancy and birth in order to do that. Male seahorses give birth and carry their babies. Trans dads who give birth call themselves seahorse dads. It’s a word that we use for ourselves so it felt like a sort of continuation of the idea that this film was told with my consent and…

    Two and a Half Men – Judith’s Pregnant from Alan Again [HD]

    Wait, Judith threw Herb out? When? Apparently, about a week ago. Of course you can’t compete hard body to hard body, but you’re still a very desirable woman. You think so? Oh, Alan… You’re a good man and I’m never gonna let you go again. Oh. Oh, hi. Thanks for bringing him over. Oh, no problem. Hey, guess what? Herb, why don’t we let Jake tell him? Eh, tell me what? Jake? My grades aren’t good enough for military school, so ha-ha. No, sweetheart. The other thing. Oh, I’m gonna have a little brother or sister. You’re… You’re pregnant? Yes, Alan. Herb and I are going to have a baby.…

    Pregnant from rape – Extended interview with Jennifer

    My name is Jennifer Christie. I’m a wife and a mother of five, and I’m sharing my story of my youngest, beautiful son. I think that things were pretty much status quo. You would consider us an average family. We had four kids, felt like I was kind of at the top of my game as an interpreter. I was taking on more work and traveling. I had interpreted a few cruises, which was really cool, I thought, and I was getting to kind of see the world a little bit there, and taking some out of town work, and still for the most part being able to be home,…

    Breastfeed Wherever You Damn Well Please | Week 37 of Pregnancy

    (upbeat music) – Remember the days before you were pregnant when you’d hit up an exercise class and throw around a couple of dumbbells like it was nothin’? That baby growing in your uterus is now those dumbbells. About 19 inches and just over six pounds. At this point she’s so big you might notice she’s moving less because she’s running out of room. It’s totally normal. But if you’re worried try drinking a sweet beverage like orange juice and laying on your side for a while. That should perk the little one up and get them moving again. (high energy music) I’m not picking those up. Sorry. I’m not…

    The lies we tell pregnant women | Sofia Jawed-Wessel

    Translator: Joseph Geni Reviewer: Joanna Pietrulewicz We’re going to share a lot of secrets today, you and I, and in doing so, I hope that we can lift some of the shame many of us feel about sex. How many here have ever been catcalled by a stranger? Lots of women. For me, the time I remember best is when that stranger was a student of mine. He came up to me after class that night and his words confirmed what I already knew: “I am so sorry, professor. If I had known it was you, I would never have said those things.” (Laughter) I wasn’t a person to him…

    Is it okay to have sex while pregnant?

    I’m Bonny Hinz and I’m a certified nurse midwife at Kaiser Permanente. In most cases, it is perfectly fine to continue having sex throughout your pregnancy. Sex during pregnancy will not harm your baby and it will not cause miscarriages and it will allow you and your partner to feel closer. There are some exceptions of course. We recommend that you avoid having sex if you have a placenta previa, if you have symptoms of preterm labor, if your bag of water has broken, or if you have a partner who has an STD. Your hormone levels are going to change from trimester the trimester and that’s probably going to…
