She goes on to say that she knows a lot of people, including her family, will be disappointed to hear the news of her pregnancy, but she is asking for privacy to handle this family matter.

Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, was set to be married to a Marine over Memorial Day weekend, but the wedding was called off.

Man takes leave from work for morning sickness

An expectant father in England is taking a leave of absence due to morning sickness. No, not for his pregnant fiancée’s morning sickness. His own. The Daily Mirror reports that Harry Ashby, 29, is believed to be the first man in the UK to be granted a leave of absence from work for pregnancy symptoms.

Shortly after Ashby’s fiancée, Charlotte Allsopp, 19, became pregnant, Ashby also began to exhibit common pregnancy symptoms. Ashby claims to have experienced morning sickness, strange cravings, back pain and weight gain. His health suffered so much that Ashby had to take a leave from work. Apparently, there is a real medical condition associated with Ashby’s bizarre symptoms. It is called Couvade syndrome, better known as sympathetic pregnancy. Ashby says he can now sympathize with Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who just announced she is pregnant with a second child and suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes acute morning sickness. Ashby and Allsopp’s child is due to arrive on Jan. 2. 

Study finds possible link between Tylenol and ADHD

Pregnant women might want to think twice before reaching for the Tylenol to help their aches and pains.

A new study published by the American Medical Association found a link between pregnant mothers taking acetaminophen, the active ingredient in pain relievers like Tylenol, and a higher risk of having children diagnosed with ADHD.

The analysis covered more than 64,000 children and mothers. In an editorial accompanying the study, doctors wrote that, while important, the findings from the study should be interpreted cautiously. (Via The Jama Network)

By "cautiously," they mean expectant mothers shouldn't necessarily avoid taking a Tylenol here and there. A doctor interviewed by Al Jazeera explained.

"One of the flaws in the study is that its not really experimental. What they did was that they called the mothers and asked if they used Tylenol when they were pregnant, or acetaminophen​, and then they also checked to see if these children were later using Ritalin."

So the study may have found a correlation, but it's far from proof that Tylenol causes ADHD. A Tylenol spokesperson responded in a similar way, telling CNN:

“When used as directed, Tylenol has one of the most favorable safety profiles among over-the-counter pain relievers. ... There are no prospective, randomized controlled studies demonstrating a causal link between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and adverse effects on child development." 

But doctors agree the issue needs to be investigated. CNN's Sanjay Gupta explains the state of the medical back-and-forth at the moment.

"The right answer is, we don't know. And people who say they know for sure probably don't. But what they think could be happening is that Tylenol could be acting as what is known as an endocrine disrupter."  

This is the latest unfortunate headline for Tylenol. Over the past few months, the FDA has issued warnings over high doses of the medicine and the possibility of liver damage. They've even gone as far as suggesting the use of warning labels on drugs that contain the acetaminophen. 

Just more than 11 percent of children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with ADHD, and around half the nation's mothers take acetaminophen during pregnancy.

Mom expecting triplets gives birth to identical quadruplets

At 41 years old, Mississippi mom Kimberly Fugate says she was surprised to learn she was pregnant — and with triplets no less. But the surprises didn't end there. 

Despite several ultrasounds during Fugate’s pregnancy, a fourth baby was somehow missed.

She told The Clarion-Ledger she revealed the surprise to her husband, who was unable to make it to the delivery, by holding up the identification bracelets on her arm and asking him to count.

The girls are identical and fittingly their names all start with K —  Kenleigh Rosa, Kristen Sue, Kayleigh Pearl and Kelsey Roxanne. (Via WDBD

They’ll join big sister Katelyn, and the 10-year-old told WAPT she's already come up with a few ideas on how to tell her new sisters apart.

The girls were born 13 weeks premature — weighing between 2 pounds 1 ounce and 2 pounds 8 ounces. On Facebook, the Fugates say their four bundles of joy are doing well — though they’re still on ventilators while their lungs continue to develop. 

To give you an idea of just how rare this is, the chances of spontaneous quadruplets are about 1 in 729,000. Doctors say the chances of all four being identical are almost incomprehensible.
