WOMAN'S STOMACH ACHE REALLY A 9-POUND BABY! Jennifer Scollin hadn't been feeling well lately and chalked it up to a stomach bug that was going around. But when the woman woke up Saturday morning with bad stomach pains, she called her boyfriend to come home — and minutes after he did, her water broke. They called 911, and she ended up delivering their second child in an ambulance parked in her driveway. Scollin says she never suspected she might be pregnant. It was only in the last few days that she started to feel poorly. And since the 9-pound, 3-ounce Cole Michael Thomas Dillman is Scollin's second child, she's well versed in what pregnancy (usually) feels like. Mom and baby are doing fine and went home from the hospital Tuesday. -Totally understandable...I think I had a similar feeling the first time I tried one of those new breakfast waffles. ~Rowdy
She's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Rachel Canning, the New Jersey teen who gained notoriety for suing her parents for college cash after moving out, scored a $56,000 scholarship with Western New England University. Canning, called “spoiled” by a case investigator, rescinded her demands for $654-a-week in child support and college tuition from her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, three weeks ago. Living with her best friend for nearly four months, the 18-year-old cheerleader moved back home to her parents on March 11. A representative for Western New England confirmed that Canning was indeed accepted into the private school located in Massachusetts. -One wonders what she will major in? Oh, where I could go with that answer...~Rowdy
Mothers might not feel like they have any extra seconds in the day to exercise, but a new study finds that being a more active mom will make your young children more active too. A study from the University of Cambridge published in the journal Pediatrics tracked 554 mothers and their four-year-olds using accelerometers. The data showed that when mothers boosted their physical activity, children's moderate to vigorous activity increased 10 percent. The study isn't perfect. It's not clear whether active moms inspired their children to be more active or if already active children were making their mothers run around after them.
