The Aussie announced in June that she and her partner, Josh, have a little one on the way. She revealed the sex of their baby-to-be two months later.

Earlier this month, the Bravo personality gave a glimpse at her “little princess” in an ultrasound shot. “Is she not like the cutest baby you have ever seen in your life?” the former reality star gushed to Bravo at the time. “I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, look at her nose!’”

Josh has been spoiling the former chief stewardess throughout her pregnancy, Ferrier went on to say. “I actually got a little teary the other day because I think I’ve really enjoyed my pregnancy journey so much because of him,” she said at the time. “He’ll get up at like 3 a.m. and go and get me cereal.

90 Day Fiance's Paul Claims Estranged Wife Karine Is Pregnant With 2nd Son

A bittersweet announcement. Paul Staehle claims his estranged wife, Karine Martins is pregnant with another baby boy, but he may “never” see the little one.

90 Day Fiance’s Paul and Karine’s Ups and Downs Through the Years

“For everyone thinking I am chasing Karine in Brazil, Karine is in Indiana USA,” the 90 Day Fiancé alum, 37, wrote on his Monday, August 31, Instagram Story after sharing footage from Brazil. “Karine is not in Brazil. I knew that when I traveled here.”

The Kentucky native explained, “I came here alone to clean and organize our Brazil home. It needs to be sanitary and baby safe. I have been keeping busy since she left. I finished cleaning and organizing [our] USA house, so now I am doing the same thing in Brazil. All my work is on the Internet, so as long as I have Internet I can be anywhere. Even court is on the Internet these days.”

Adorable! ’90 Day Fiance’ Babies: Pics

Staehle was hit with a restraining order last month after an altercation at the couple’s home that saw Martins flee with their 17-month-old child, Pierre. “I have not seen my son since July. Next court date is now in December,” Staehle wrote.

The TLC personality then revealed the sex of their baby-to-be, writing, “I will not see my sons for a very long time. I have to cope the fact I probably will never see my wife and son again. Or see the birth or ever see my unborn child. … I have lost my sons. That being said, I think I am mentally doing what is best staying constructive and busy.”

He and Martins tied the knot in November 2017 and welcomed Pierre two years later. In July, Staehle alleged via Instagram that the pregnant star was missing with their son after filing “a full restraining order” against him.

Martins subsequently released a statement saying she wasn’t missing and wrote, “Relationships are hard and sometimes it just can’t be fixed anymore. I need this time to organize my thoughts, work on myself and care for my son after everything we have been through in the last year and a half.”

The real reason you shouldn’t drink raw milk when pregnant

Maybe you’ve gone most of your life without really questioning what you’re eating. You have friends who talk about non-GMO this and gluten-free that, and you’ve shrugged it off and kept eating your Cocoa Puffs. But all of that can change when you’re pregnant, and you become intensely aware that whatever you put into your mouth is also feeding your baby. Suddenly, you crave free-range chicken and apples picked off the trees of a local orchard. You make yourself a salad from lettuce and carrots that still had a little dirt on them when you bought them at the farmer’s market.

And what about milk? Should you keep on buying that half-gallon at the grocery store — which has been pasteurized to remove bacteria — or does your imagination send you to a barnyard, where a pink-cheeked milkmaid hands you a rustic metal pail, filled with the frothy, raw, unpasteurized milk from that morning’s session with Bessie? According to Nourished Kitchen, raw milk indeed has many health benefits, ranging from enzymes that allow you to better absorb the calcium to beneficial bacteria that support gut health.

But experts warn that it’s extremely dangerous for pregnant women to drink raw milk. Here’s why.

Drinking raw milk when pregnant can cause serious complications

The biggest risk of drinking raw, unpasteurized milk when you’re pregnant is that you could develop Listeria, which causes a miscarriage or stillbirth in 20% of women who contract the pathogen. The American Academy of Pediatrics noted that higher rates of pre-term delivery, as well as sepsis and meningitis in newborns, have all been linked to a Listeria infection due to the mother’s consumption of raw milk (per Live Science). If you’re wondering whether milk from cows that are grass-fed is safe to drink — or if a farmer says the milk is tested to confirm lack of bacteria — the CDC says there’s still a risk that the milk will be unsafe to drink, noting that even healthy animals from clean farms may pass on harmful microorganisms.

What about if you’re not pregnant? Raw milk enthusiasts chug the stuff because they believe in its health benefits and are outraged by government regulations restricting its sale. “Legally, I can feed my children fast food three meals a day. But then to get this incredible, nutrient-dense, fresh local food, the farmer in my state is criminalized for selling that to me,” stay-at-home mom Liz Reitzig told NPR. However, the bottom line comes from Mary Glode, a professor of pediatric infectious disease at Children’s Hospital Colorado: “Pasteurization is one of the major public-health advances of the century. It’s a shame not to take advantage of that.” (via WebMD)

Still Growing! Pregnant Teddi Mellencamp’s Family Album

Teddi Mellencamp may hold a diamond on TV, but her husband and kids are the real gems in her life.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and husband Edwin Arroyave are parents of daughter Slate and son Cruz. The Skyline Security Management founder is also the father of daughter Isabella from a previous relationship.

Us Weekly broke the news in September 2019 that Mellencamp is pregnant with their third child after the couple struggled with fertility issues.

“Edwin’s like, ‘It was meant to be!’ We’re both just so over the moon!” the Bravo star gushed to Us at the time. “Even when I finally was like, ‘I took the test and it’s positive,’ he was like, ‘We have to go to the doctor! I don’t believe this test! Did you take a different vitamin that might have showed up and said you were pregnant?’”

The accountability coach admitted that she doesn’t know how she got pregnant naturally after multiple rounds of IVF and suffering more than one miscarriage, but she’s “really happy that it happened!”

“Doctors say that sometimes it just happens,” she told Us. “There’s no real reason why, maybe it’s because you’ve alleviated the pressure and your body just feels more relaxed to get pregnant?”

Mellencamp and Arroyave’s kids are also “so excited” about getting another sibling.

“They’ve been talking about it for a long time and, actually, it’s been my son who’s been like, ‘Mom, we need to have another baby,’” Mellencamp told Us. “And I never wanted to get his hopes up. So when we told him, he was through the roof. Like, amazing. So excited.”

The danger for the Unborn through “natural substances” – Naturopathy naturopathy specialist portal

Even herbal substances can cause harm to the Unborn

Pregnant women are advised to eat a healthy diet and to avoid certain foods better, in order not to endanger your child. The diet should be as free as possible of chemical additives. Researchers now report that “natural” substances can cause harm to the fetus.

According to a recent communication from the University of Bern, herbal preparations, which Pregnant about your food record will be decomposed by the intestinal flora in chemical substances, some of which cross the placental barrier and pass through into the fetus move. The experts say these body-foreign substances can the Unborn harm, even if they are “of natural origin”. They warn against the effects of such substances to underestimate.

We are populated by billions of microbes

All mammals and so, too, we humans are colonized by billions of microbes that live mainly in our intestines, which are, however, also be found in the respiratory tract, on the skin and in the urogenital tract.

In the research group of gastroenterology of the Department for BioMedical Reserarch (DBMR) at the University of Bern (Switzerland) and at the Inselspital, University hospital Bern, investigate Stephanie Ganal-Vonarburg, and Andrew Macpherson, the Interaction of these benign gut microbes with the host organism.

It has a positive influence on the immune system

The positive influence of gut flora on our immune system, is already known for a long time. The maternal intestinal flora has an influence on the development of the child’s system of immune in the womb and right after birth.

Stephanie Ganal-Vonarburg, and Andrew Macpherson to have borne together in a in the journal “Science” published review article, the current knowledge about the extent to which the maternal gut flora in the development of the child’s immune assisting system.

The experts also found evidence that the effect of herbal substances, which include Pregnant women about the diet, has been underestimated in research to date and a potential risk for the Unborn is.

Drugs can interfere with the development of the child

The research is a long time, the developing Embryo and fetus is completely sterile, that is, in the absence of colonizing microbes, grows up, and that the settlement takes place only at the time of birth.

“However, the fetus is not protected, in spite of everything against microbial metabolic products derived from the intestinal flora of the mother,” says Ganal-Vonarburg.

The data suggest that the placenta provides only partial protection, and contact with microbial substances leads system in the mother’s womb for the maturation of the infant’s innate immune. This could show that previous studies of the group of Ganal-Vonarburg, and Macpherson.

“It is common that Pregnant women taking medication only with caution and after consultation with your doctor, because many medications can cross the placenta and the development of the child’s disturbing,” said Ganal-Vonarburg.

“Much less is however known about what naturally-occurring substances can be excreted in the diet on the unborn child and the extent to which it’s beneficial or harmful for the development of the child can be immune system,” explains the scientist.

Also, the intake of Superfoods can be problematic

Ganal-Vonarburg has now worn with Andrew Macpherson, current research results and evidence found, that the metabolic products of the food, not only directly, but often only after metabolism by the intestinal flora in the maternal organism, and so also in the developing fetus can get.

This also applies to the use of herbal products, for example Superfoods that will apply just in pregnancy is considered to be very healthy, such as Goji berries or Chia seeds:

“Although herbal products are “natural” substances, they are still a so-called xenobiotic, so the body of foreign substances, with which handled very carefully as it should be,” explains Macpherson. “Just when Pregnant plant-based products in large quantities in the future”.

The researchers recommend that future studies should investigate how and which substances are beneficial or a negative effect on the development of the Unborn child have, and what is the influence of differences in the maternal intestinal flora in this process can have.

How the immune system develops

As soon as the Baby passes through the birth canal of the mother, begins the colonization of its body surfaces with the benign Flora. In the course of the first years this Matures to a complex community of microbes.

External influences, such as delivery (spontaneous birth, caesarean section), as well as nutrition (breast-feeding or bottle-feeding) influence this process in the long term.

In Parallel with this, the child’s immune system develops. Today is considered to be evidence that certain microbial Stimuli dominate in this early time, the immune system for life. (ad)

Pregnant Bekah Martinez Details Home Birth Plan Ahead of Baby No. 2

Happy at home! Pregnant Bekah Martinez is “really excited” about her upcoming home birth.

“With my first daughter Ruth, we had her at a birth center,” the Bachelor alum, 25, said on the new episode of Us Weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast. “This time, [my boyfriend, Grayston Leonard, and I] decided we were going to do a home birth with midwives. So that was already the plan. Now with quarantine and COVID-19, it’s kind of nice that I don’t have to be at the hospital.”

The “Chatty Broads” podcast cohost went on to tell Us exclusively that “virtually nothing had to change” about her plan amid the coronavirus pandemic. “If anything, some people think I’m a little less crazy, so good,” the former ABC personality joked.

The former reality star and Leonard, 31, previously welcomed their daughter, Ruth, in February 2019. The 15-month-old has “no freaking clue” that she has a younger sibling on the way.

Martinez explained, “For her, it’s been pretty gradual. [My stomach] been slowly growing over half her life, basically, like I got pregnant when she was seven months old. So I don’t know if she really notices. But we tell her like, ‘Baby, there’s a baby inside,’ and we’ll point to pictures of babies.”

The California native announced in November 2019 that she and the rock climbing gym owner are expecting baby No. 2. Their baby boy is due in June.

Martinez has “noticed little differences here and there,” she told Us of her second pregnancy. “I don’t think I have any, like, preconceived notions of what it’s gonna be like to have a boy vs. a girl because I was I was a nanny for five years before. You have little girls who are crazy, energetic maniacs everywhere all at once, then you have little boys who are just super sweet and cuddly and easygoing and have sort of that stereotypical girl energy. I think it’s kind of a gamble.”
