Kate Middleton Is Officially in Labour – Palace Confirms

HOOOOOOORAY!

hoooray

Kate Middleton has been admitted to St. Mary’s Hospital in London in the early stages of labour Kensington Palace press office confirms.

“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted this morning to St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London in the early stages of labour,” says the official statement.

“The Duchess travelled by car from Kensington Palace to the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital with The Duke of Cambridge.”

Thank goodness for that – the long wait is over and the fun is finally beginning (for us, not for Catherine)!

DEEEP BREATHS!

DEEEP BREATHS!

Let’s hope has got a big bag of posh pain killers to help her pop that future heir to throne out and that sister Pippa and her well-meaning advise (deep breaths, Catherine!) steer clear of the Lindo Wing for now, at least (she’s probably getting her hair done before she pops down to pose for the waiting media as we speak!)

The jury is still out as to whether its a boy or a girl…

Kate Middleton : The Best Maternity Style Ever?

Hiya Poutlings

Kate Middleton is due to pop out a royal baby in a matter of weeks. She is due to go on maternity leave from the 13th of June.kate middleton1

She attended the service to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation yesterday morning along with Prince William and Harry and a whole bunch of both minor and senior royals at Westminster Abbey.

Kate wore pale pink Jenny Packham for the event. A beautiful lacy dress with a silver grey ribbon, she paired it with a Jane Taylor pill box hat plus of course, her trusty LK Bennett nude pumps.

The whole outfit comes together when you see the shoes. The outfit speaks of Kate, conservative and demure but while one is pregnant, do you really want to be loud and proud? I think not. She really looks quite lovely.

I think other pregnant stars, mention no names could learn something from this fine young woman’s dress sense. I believe this is the last royal outing until the baby comes, but she looks positively radiant.

Well done Kate.

What Will Life be Like for the Royal Offspring?

Hiya Poutlings

Royal watchers are ravenous for news about the forthcoming progeny of Prince William and wife, Kate, so loads of speculations have happened all over the net – have taken a look at what life will be like for the soon-to-be third in line to the British throne.

  • He or she will be welcomed with tolling bells, cannons and bonfires. I’m serious. You probably won’t understand if you’re not British. It’s something we do.
  • His or her last name will be same as William’s. Which is Mountbatten-Windsor, for those who don’t know.
  • If she’s a girl, her name will probably include “Diana”. But it most likely will not be her first name, just one of many, the Atlantic Wire points out that Europe’s largest betting firm is already taking bets.
  • Kate will probably breastfeed the little one. That might seem obious, but up until Princess Diana, British royals typically used wet nurses.
  • There  may (or may not) be a nanny. But just one, and any royal siblings may share. (A far cry from the two to four nannies per child like some American celebrities use.) However sources have said that Kate plans to be a full-time mum and doesn’t want a nanny, an idea that initially shocked Prince Charles. She may, however have a maternity nurse for the first few weeks.
  • Speaking of royal siblings, Kate may be having twins. Medical experts say hyperemesis gravidarum, the servere form of morning sickness that caused Kate to be hospitalised is linked to having twins.
  • Kate wants her child to lead as “normal” a life as possible. Even so, that “normal” life will likely include an approximate R16,000,000 wardrobe alone, according to an expert who has dressed royals in other countries. But another expert notes that those clothes will probably be “sensible”, and that royal babies are typically brought up with “few parties, not too many toys and very dull meals”.

FITNESS MAGAZINE

FITNESS MAGAZINE!

20120920-144418.jpg

Being a fitness fanatic, I am completely in love with FITNESS MAGAZINE !

Never have I come across a magazine so informative and interesting, I have been buying and reading this magazine religiously for over 2 years now, never once have I been disappointed in it.

Being from South Africa, a lot of our fitness magazines were imported from overseas, which I didn’t bother buying due to the fact that if there were recipes or anything in them, I wouldn’t find half the ingredients or clothing and supplements they had for sale or advertised in the magazine.

Having fallen in love with FITNESS MAGAZINE SOUTH AFRICA I would highly recommended this magazine to any fitness fanatic, or those starting off new in the gym or fitness and health lifestyle.

Fitness magazine is very comprehensive, they have articles for beginners and advanced fitness freaks (like me), they have articles for the pregnant fairy’s, articles on health and training, success stories, and fat loss articles.

Ladies take advantage! Best magazine to buy, so educational and articles are always a pleasure to read. Awesome fitness clothes advertised along with nutritional supplements from leading brands.

Fitness magazine is available in your leading stores, like CNA and Dis-Chem or even better get a subscription and have it delivered to you, even better get a Digital Copy.

Fitness Magazine is well priced and well worth it! SO what you waiting for ladies, go grab one and get fit!

THE 8TH ANNUAL PREGNANT BIKINI PAGEANT

Hiya Poutlings

The wonderful Miss Sandylashxx, has previously mentioned the Miss Pregnant pagent that is held… Well, my blog is about something of a similar nature…. pregancy and pageants….

In Houston Texas, this past Thursday 40 expecting mothers all in their third trimester strutted their stuff in the 8th ANNUAL PREGNANT BIKINI PAGENT.

The women in this competition are not only competing who looks the best, pregnant, in a bikini, but their are events throughout the day designed to to “test” their mommy skills too, like the nappy toss and baby change.

Here are some of the contestants!

IMPORTANT:
Now PLEASE bear in mind my opinion is based on my experience of being around pregnant women. I have never been pregnant, so this is possibly incorrect, but I have all the necessities if I wished to be so… I also never wish to be pregnant or have children of my own, so let’s just put that out there before I give you my thoughts.

I believe that I understand why these women think its a great idea  to enter such a contest, simply because generally speaking due to the change that happens to a womens body during in pregnancy CAN result in the women feeling insecure and  unattractive, especially around friends who are still skinny with their social lives and sex lives intact. So, I’m sure it’s a fun experience to be around a bunch of other girls going through the same thing.

However, bikini contents can be trashy to begin with (yes, NOT all are, but most of them are…) I have no problem with pregnant women in general, or even a pregnant mommy-to-be in a bikini on the beach… but to parade around and seek attention just before giving birth really gives me the impression that once your new baby starts to get attention you used to get (by parading around in bikinis/generally from your looks) you will start to get jealous of the attention the baby receives, instead of yourself and well, I don’t think later on in life or when you are supposed to be “bonding” with the new infant that its going to bode well emotionally with that child.

To be frank, I’m happy these women have the confidence to do this, I simply wouldn’t ever have the confidence to this normally, never mind if I happened to be pregnant. It doesn’t however mean I anyway condone this type of behaviour, my honest first reaction to seeing these pictures were: WTF A BUNCH BREEDERS, WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THIS, and WHO THE HELL IS THE FATHER OF THAT CHILD? I suppose this type of behaviour feeds the strange and weird pregnancy fetishes?

Jennifer Clay, 32 Weeks Pregnant and the Winner…

Anyway, at the end of the pageant, Jennifer Clay, who is 32 weeks pregnany was crowned the winner based on her grace, presentation, and what the judges called “it” factor. In six weeks she’ll be getting a crown of completely different kind… So um, well done to her for being beautiful, having good mothering skills (?), having the “it” factor, getting knocked up and well, winning this daft contest, I guess….

Would love to hear your thoughts… Am I the only one that thinks this is completely BIZARRE?
