Tis the Season to Conceive

We are in full swing for the holiday season. With Thanksgiving under our belt next up is getting out that Christmas tree, sending out those holiday cards, checking off our gift giving list and conceiving. Yup, you heard right, the holiday season is statistically the most popular time to conceive.

Data journalist Matt Stiles compiled stats from the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics and the U.S Social Security Administration from the years 1994 and 2014. What Stiles concluded from his investigation is the most common American birthdays fall on September 9, 19 and 12. He also concluded that 9 out of the 10 most popular birthdays fall in the month of September.

So if mid-September is the most popular time to give birth in the United States and we count backward and do our math right that means the child was conceived during the holiday season. So why is that? More Americans take time off from their jobs and spend it at home with their loved ones between Thanksgiving and Christmas. While it’s notorious for being a bustling time that can be stressful for most a large part of Americans find it to be the perfect time to reconnect with their mate.

On the flip side, the holiday season isn’t a popular time to give birth. According to Stiles research Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day are the least popular days to welcome your newborn. That’s due to the likelihood that  OB-GYN’s aren’t going to schedule a C-section on the major holidays unless medically necessary of course.

Who says the holidays are a stressful time filled with family dynamics, long distance travels and deadlines to meet? So remember to take some time out for your partner and enjoy a cup of eggnog together. Because according to hard fact data, that kiss under the mistletoe really does work.  ‘Tis the season to conceive as it were.

Jersey Shore’s ‘Snooki’ Announces She is Expecting Baby No. 3

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi has a little extra something to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. The 30-year-old reality star announced on Instagram Thursday that she and her hubby Jionni LaValle, 31 are expecting baby no. 3. The couple is already parents to daughter Giovanna Maria, 4, and son Lorenzo Dominic, 6.

Polizzi posted a picture of her two children holding a picture frame of her latest sonogram captioning her exciting baby news, “What I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.”

The MTV star shared a second more candid playful post of her two kiddos throwing what looked like a tantrum from the news of their impending new sibling.

Snooki has talked openly about her desire to have a large family. The mama admitted to the INSIDER last month that she was struggling to conceive. She revealed, ‘We’re definitely trying to have more.”

‘It’s just not happening right now,’ the star continued. ‘But I would love to be pregnant ASAP.’

Polizzi spoke to Us revealing her baby making strategy she put into play to make baby no. 3 happen for her and La Valle. The reality star recapped how she has a once of month standing date with her hubby that entails wine, Netflix, and of course pizza along with baby making as the end goal.

“We get our wine, we order pizza and then we go into our spare room,” Polizzi told Us. “We stay up till 3 o’clock in the morning just watching Netflix and getting drunk and trying to have a baby.”

Polizzi and LaValle tied the knot in November 2014, two months after the Jersey Shore star gave birth to her daughter Giovanna.

It looks like Snooki’s baby-making strategy worked out for the reality star. But let’s see if her wish for another boy pans out. Polizzi revealed in an interview back in 2016 that she prays that when the time comes for another baby that it isn’t a girl. “I don’t want any more girls. If I have a girl, I’m just going to be really upset about it.”

’90 Day Fiance’ Star Paola Mayfield Goes Blonde During Pregnancy, Speaks Out to Fans

90 Day Fiance star Paola Mayfield is doing great in her pregnancy. She went through a rough time after having a miscarriage, but her next pregnancy has gone well. Us Weekly shared that Paola recently looked like she had dyed her hair blonde and had fans worried about the baby.

The fans started telling her that she shouldn’t do that while she was pregnant. It turns out that Paola is taking care of her baby just fine, though. She actually shared that it was a wig that she had on. Paola looked amazing and you couldn’t even tell that it wasn’t her real hair. She even teased that she only has to wash it every so often.

She also responded saying, “Those who spend their time looking for the faults in others, usually spend no time correcting their own.” Paola Mayfield is really excited to be a mom and would never actually do anything to harm her baby on purpose. The fans just notice things and get really upset when they don’t agree with it. Paola didn’t even do what they thought, though. 

Paolo Mayfield hasn’t been shy at all about showing off her baby bump on her Instagram. One picture even has her in a little bikini with the blonde wig on. She looks amazing and like she isn’t far from having her baby either. Paolo also knows that she is having a baby boy with her husband Russ. She is really happy to be expecting. If you want to keep up with how she is doing, Paolo shares on her social networks often.

So far, it hasn’t been revealed if Paolo and Russ will be on a future season of 90 Day Fiance. It would be great to see them on the show once again. Hopefully, that ends up happening and viewers can see how they are as parents for the first time. Married at First Sight is doing a spin-off this season of all couples from the show who are expecting. A similar version of 90 Day Fiance about expecting parents or the ones that have children would be a huge hit. 90 Day Fiance has already done several spin-offs, so who knows.

Do you hope to see Paola Mayfield on a future season of 90 Day Fiance? Make sure that you don’t miss the new season as it airs on Sunday nights on TLC. The couples on the show right now are trying to decide if they want to go through with the K1-Visa process or not.

Elizabeth Smart Welcomes Her Third Child: It’s a Girl!

Three is a charm!

Elizabeth Smart and hubby Matthew Gilmour welcomed their third child together, they are officially a family of five. Smart announced on Instagram Monday that she had given birth to a girl, sharing a picture of their newest member who was sporting a University of Utah Health beanie.

The 31-year-old new mother wrote alongside the post, “So happy to welcome Olivia to our family!!!”

Olivia joins big sister Chloe, 3 ½ and big brother James, 19 months.

Smart and Gilmour who married in 2012 in a small intimate ceremony in Hawaii announced that they were excepting for the third time in June. The kidnap survivor and victim’s right advocate posted at the time a picture of an ultrasound, “Pretty HUGE news!! We’re expecting baby #3 in November!!” she captioned the post.

Elizabeth Smart and her family reside in the mountain town of Park City, Utah.

It’s been 16 years since the advocate was kidnapped from her bedroom on a summer evening. Smart endured physical, emotional and mental abuse for 9 months from her captives before being rescued.

Smart has come along way since the traumatic ordeal she endured as a child. In September she opened up to PEOPLE and said she is “grateful for the small things.”

But Smart admitted that even though she feels like “the luckiest woman in the world” for how her life has played out she can’t help but worry when it comes to her own children.

“There’s a part of me that’s always thinking, ‘Are the windows shut? Where is she at? Who is by her? Can I see her?’ I don’t want to let Chloe out of my sight,” Smart explained. “I will never regret being there for my children, watching them, making sure they’ll be okay. But I might regret not being there for them.”
