Watch Serena Williams Play Tennis While Very Pregnant Like The Badass She Is

Serena Williams is living her best pregnant life. The tennis star has been jet-setting, attending fabulous events and just generally slaying since the news of her pregnancy broke in April.

A post shared by Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) on Jun 15, 2017 at 5:56am PDT Clearly, she’s still got it. Williams accidentally announced she was expecting her first child with fiancé Alexis Ohanian on Snapchat and later confirmed that she was pregnant when she won the Australian Open. Because of course she was.  Still, it’s hasn’t been all fun and games. Williams has also turned to social media to vent about the less glamorous parts of pregnancy and seek advice from her followers.  Tummy itches. Don't scratch right?

I hear this nearly every day in my primary care clinic. Many of my patients are overweight or obese, which mirrors the national trend: two out of three adults in the US are overweight or obese. Many of these folks suffer from medical issues such as low back, hip, knee, and foot pain; asthma; obstructive sleep apnea; fatty liver; type 2 diabetes; high blood pressure; high cholesterol; or depression. We know that these conditions often improve with weight loss. So, I often recommend weight loss as a first step in treatment, and the usual approach is through lifestyle change. Lifestyle change programs for weight loss have bee...

By: Kimberly Jordan Allen Acid reflux is an unpleasant sensation many people experience. Thankfully, there are plenty of natural remedies for heartburn relief. When I was pregnant with twins I discovered a not-so-pleasant sensation I'd never experienced before--heartburn, also called acid reflux. I always imagined this was something that struck older folks, or those ingesting copious amounts of junk food. But according to the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders, (a mouthful in itself!), an estimated $2 billion in productivity is lost each week due to various disorders within the heartburn/g...

In fact, an estimated 50 to 70 million American adults suffer from sleep disorders like insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea. Many turn to prescription sleep medications for relief– but women are more likely to take sleep drugs than men. About 3.1 percent of American men and 5 percent of American women report having used a prescription sleep medication within the last 30 days. What does this use of sleep aids me...

CONCLUSIONS: There are no large-scale RCTs to assess heartburn relief in pregnancy. This review of nine small studies (which involved data from only four small studies) indicates that there are limited data suggesting that heartburn in pregnancy could be completely relieved by pharmaceutical treatment. Three outcomes were assessed and assigned a quality rating using the GRADE methods. Evidence from two trials for the outcome of complete relief of heartburn was assessed as of moderate quality. Evidence for the outcomes of partial heartburn relief and side effects was graded to be of very low quality. Downgrading decisions w...

I had a total abdominal hysterectomy, omentectomy, appendectomy and removal of a rugby ball sized ovarian cyst and another not so large cyst on the other ovary. They have cut me from my bikini line up past my belly button to under my rib cage so they could get the cyst out on one piece. I felt so unwell before I had the surgery, I looked pregnant, I was severely anemic, I was out of breath, I found it difficult to fasten my shoes, my pants crippled me, I couldn’t eat as I would vomit and the heartburn was ...

    by Cari Nierenberg, Live Science Contributor Being pregnant can be a tiring experience for a woman’s body. Both the physical discomforts of pregnancy as well as the emotional stress of this major life change can cause sleep problems and keep a mother-to-be awake at night. Feeling exhausted is a common complaint during the first and third trimesters. But women might be caught off guard by how worn out they feel in the early months of pregnancy. “A lot of women are totally surprised by how fatigued they feel during the first trimester,” said Kathy Lee, a professor of nursing at the University...
