Make Sure to Eat Enough for Baby Growth

Your now eating for two people, so you need to eat a little more. Ignore your weight lost goals if it comes in contact with eating enough to support baby. Women who do not eat enough calories will make it hard for their baby to develop and breath when baby comes out. So, consume an additional 100 calories on top of the standard 2400 calories you need to consume each day. Totaling to 2500 calories you need to eat each day all together. You are eating for two people. Your going to need to eat more so you and the little guy can be ok. With that, expect to gain some weight. Hey, don’t be unrealistic and try to lose every bit of fat you gain. Ideally, it would be wise for you to wait until the baby is out. Once the baby is out, you can spend a lot more time working out and go on extreme diets. But, when the baby is inside you, you need to hold back and eat more. Altogether, eat for two people and stay at the safe limit consumption of 2500 calories per day.

Use Pregnancy Scale to Track Weight

Pregnancy scale is the best way to track your daily weight. Weight changes week to week. It changes based on how much you eat per day. The scale measures your weight and mass. To deeply explain, mass is you and weight is the force the gravity pulls on you because your on Earth. Walk onto the scale and your weight is given after standing for 5 seconds. Sometimes, the weight does not show your exact weight. You need to measure your weight over and over to get the more accurate weight number. Go to the bathroom and step on the scale once a week. Let yourself know how much weight you are gaining and try to keep it at the safe level. If you found yourself going over, take a deep breath. Then, try to eat less the next coming days. Mandatory that you eat 2500 calories per day. Make sure you are not going over that limit of food. Use the scale each week and hopefully your weight loss methods are working.

Cut Down On Calories

As long as your not going under 2500 calories, you can cut down on the calories you consume. This is not going to be fun. You are going to experience a moment where you wish you were eating anyway. All the food will be in your face. Try your best to eat only the required 2500 per day calories. Disappear from people who have food that is tempting to eat. Hang around folk who eat healthy salads and boring food that you want no part in. Additionally, avoid going to places with snacks. Any snack could provoke you to eat more and more. You are on a strict diet and you can’t have anything getting in your way. To sum up, eat less and avoid things that provoke you to go over the standard calorie eat budget.

Sun Protection is Very Important for Outside Activities

Going out in the Sun is little dangerous. You could find yourself catching cancer if your not too careful. The Sun’s UV light is not as friendly as it feels. Whenever you go out to the beach, wear sunscreen to protect your skin. Wipe it on each layer that is going to be exposed to the Sun’s rays. Babies need to have on the best sunscreen for babies you can find. Their skin is very reactive to the outside environments. More importantly, you need to keep your baby away from the Sun. Too much time in the Sun can not help your baby’s skin however. Read what is below to be more prepared with Sun protection.

Sunburns Are Caused From the Sun

Baby Sunburns


Sunburns are called sunburns because the Sun causes them. The Sun light hits the Earth each day. During this time, a small strand of heat light penetrates the Earth’s atmosphere and touches the skin. The heat light called UV rays react with a chemical called melanin in your skin. Once this happens, your skin is open to having cancer, tanning, burns, or wrinkles. Basically, all the Sun needs to do is touch your skin to cause a sunburn. The sunburn process will most likely happen if you stay outside for long periods. Being outside for short periods is not enough time to make sunburn appear on your skin. People who spend a small amount of time like 1 hour or less do not have to worry about sunburn too much. Those of you who spend 2 or more hours need to worry about sunburn. Stay out of the Sun’s UV lights, if you plan to be out in the Sun for two hours or more.

Cover your Body With Clothes

Cover yourself with clothes to protect you from the Sun’s heat rays. Same, applies to babies you take with you. However, important to make the baby wear the best sunscreen for babies  anyway in daylight. Babies react to everything outside in a poor manner. Their skin is very soft and very weak. Apply the sunscreen to every inch of their skin and then put clothes around them. Back to main point, wear clothes to alternatively protect yourself from the Sun. Clothes are not just fabric you put on to keep warm. They are fabric that block invisible heat light that damages your skin once the Sun touches it for two ours. If you plan to be out in the Sun for two hours or more, wear long sleeve clothes and pants. I know its hot outside and I know you don’t feel like it. But, you need to do it to stop the Sun from giving you cancer and making you look old.

Wear Sunglasses to Protect Eye Sight

Sunglasses are a good way to protect your eyes from sunlight. This is only recommended for people being out in Sun for long instances. Light hits your eyes and damages the vision little by little. Normally, your body can handle it. But, if you plan on looking outside for long periods, you might want to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes. Your eyes are strong and they have abilities you wouldn’t think of. But they have their limits just like the muscles connected to your bones. Put on the shades and help your eyes hold onto its vision for the next 30 years or so. Personally, I never want my eyes to lose vision. I want my eyes to look clear as they do in my twenties. Once you get old, your eyes are going to be trying to not work on you. To emphasize, wear sunglasses to keep your 100% vision and make them last a long time.


‘Teen Mom 2′ star Kailyn Lowry is openly an atheist but her husband Javi is a man of faith, so it’s not surprising that they are celebrating Christmas. We saw Kail celebrate Christmas with a tree on Teen Mom 2, but she later stated on Twitter that she did what she was “told to do,” without much further explanation.

Kail Lowry Christmas Tree

Despite their religious differences Kailyn  totally embraces Christmas, she shared a photo of their Christmas tree on instagram. “This is what happens when you have 2 kids and 2 dogs. They take all the ornaments off the tree that are within arms reach…….. Maybe instead of presents Santa will just come replace the ornaments,” Kail explained.



Corey Simms of ‘Teen Mom 2′ originally filed for primary custody of the 4 year old twins Ali and Aleeah, but instead he and Leah will be sharing responsibilities more evenly.

According to Corey’s lawyer Rusty Webb of The Webb Law Centre in Charleston who spoke with RadarOnline Corey will have the girls 3 nights per week while Leah will have them 4 nights per week.


As far as the medical responsibilities of Aliannah who has a rare form of muscular dystrophy, Webb says “there will be a shared responsibility to get her to and from appointments,.. both parents will be present for her therapy visits.” This way Corey can make sure that Ali is attending all of her scheduled visits, which he was concerned about after receiving letters threatening to cancel Ali’s treatment due to missed appointments.


Another source that spoke with the site says that Leah is “upset” with the new agreement because she didn’t want to lose any time with the twins. Leah also stated on ‘Teen Mom 2′ that she wanted to be in charge of Ali’s medical coverage and decisions.

Ali and Aleeah turn 5 years old on December 16th and will have a 2 separate Birthday bashes, one with Leah and one with Corey.



After relentlessly denying that Leah cheated on her second husband with him, Robbie Kidd has admitted to sleeping with Leah.  “Whenever things are going bad in our lives, we reach out to each other, and this is what happens,” Robbie told In Touch Weekly

Mr. Kidd explains what happened the night they hooked up. “Leah felt really alone because Jeremy’s gone a lot for work,” Robbie said.  “She said Jeremy doesn’t care about her or their family when he’s gone. All he wants to do is talk about sex.… I asked her if she wanted to come over and talk… [she] didn’t hesitate. She came right over, and one thing led to another and we had sex. We wore protection. That was the one and only time.

Leah has yet to respond to Robbie’s public confession… and Robbie doesn’t seem to care, he says : “We’ll always have a connection, but I’m tired of the drama. I’m finally happy with where I’m at in my life. I don’t want anything to do with her anymore.

Mackenzie Douthit of ‘Teen Mom 3′ recently opened up about the day she was diagnosed diabetic in her new fitness blog. Mackenzie explains that as a child she had trouble learning because of her unknown illness and it wasn’t until her teen years that she found out about it.

I probably made the worst grades out of any grade-schooler around me. My brain just did not function how it was supposed to (due to being an undiagnosed Diabetic) and I hated the fact that all my teachers begged my mom to put me on all this medicine saying I needed it because I was slow. They literally had me convinced I was mentally-challenged even though my Mom knew it had to be something else.


The day that Mackenzie was finally diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes was on her sister’s birthday after drinking 6 glasses of soda during dinner her mother curiously decided to check her sugar levels. Mackenzie’s father is diabetic also so they were able to easily check. When the test revealed Mac’s sugar level was high her mother feared the worst.

She was pale and I could tell she wanted to cry. She grabbed my hand and took me to the hospital only to find out my blood sugar was 698 and I would have to live the rest of my life taking shots to stay alive. OK….WORST DAY OF MY LIFE, AND WORST BIRTHDAY PRESENT TO MY POOR SISTER. “

Mackenzie now has her diabetes under control and has started a fitness blog to talk about eating and exercising so she can perhaps help others lead a healthy lifestyle.



Sad news for ‘Teen Mom 2′ fans, Leah Calvert has decided to no longer take part in the show, most likely due to the broken state of her marriage to second husband Jeremy Calvert.


Leah confirmed via Twitter that she will not go on to a season 6 of the show. An insider tells The Ashley’s Reality Roundup that Leah is scarred of airing another divorce on television because of the terrible backlash she has gotten from the first one. Sources also say that the show will go on with just the three remaining girls, Chelsea, Jenelle and Kailyn.


No premiere date has been set for ‘Teen Mom 2′ Season 6 but my guess is that it will air next year after the new season of the original ‘Teen Mom’ show.

UPDATE: It’s now being reported that Leah’s real reason for leaving the show is because she’s in real danger of loosing custody of her twin daughters Ali and Aleeah. The footage from the show is making Leah look bad according to an insider and Leah is “ready to leave her reality TV life behind.

Here is the book’s description from Post Hill Press,  found on (where you can pre-order it by the way!): “Since Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra shared their story of teen pregnancy and adoption on the MTV’s 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, they’ve been known for their inspiring commitment to growing up right. Between their experience placing their first daughter for adoption, and their struggle to cope with problems in their families, Catelynn and Tyler were challenged in every imaginable way. But against all odds, the childhood sweethearts rose above the dysfunction to become responsible adults whose story has inspired many others.

How did two troublemaking kids from the trailer park make it through the storm of family dysfunction, teen pregnancy, and adoption without letting go of each other? What gave them the strength to conquer the chaos of their lives and go on to become people their children could be proud of? And what really happened when the cameras weren’t there?

Now, in their debut book, Catelynn and Tyler tell the story in their own words…and they leave nothing out. From the wild behavior that went down before MTV to their experiences learning and teaching about adoption, Catelynn and Tyler lay it all out on the table. Open, honest, raw, and real, Conquering Chaos is an incredible look at two young people who beat the odds and used their victories to give hope to others
