No Stress For Kylie

On February 4, Kylie Jenner released a statement about her well-hidden pregnancy. In her statement she explained her reasoning for keeping such an important time in her life secret.

She also shared this photo of her daughter whom she named Stormi. (Photo/@kyliejenner on Instagram.)

In the beginning of the statement, she apologized for having kept it hidden away. In my opinion, however; she should not have to apologize for making this decision.

As one of the most influential young people of our time, Kylie is constantly under incredible scrutiny. From what she wears to questions about if she has had cosmetic procedures, she cannot do anything without this scrutiny from the public.

During pregnancy, it is crucial that the mother remain as stress-free as possible. Stress on the mother is not good for her or for her baby.

According to the United States National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, mothers who experience great amounts of stress during pregnancy are 1.4 to 1.8 times more likely to have a premature birth. Another study also done by the national library of medicine indicates that mothers who experience copious amounts of stress during gestation are also 2.0 to 3.8 times more likely to give birth to a child with a low birth weight.

With the weight of the world and all eyes on her, Kylie Jenner had every right to fly under the radar during her pregnancy. It was for her well being as well as the well-being of her baby. For that, she does not owe the public an apology or any explanation.

Though she lives much of her life in the eyes of the public, that does not mean that the public is entitled to know everything about her and her private life.

In my opinion, I think it was actually very mature of her to keep her pregnancy private. She did not exploit her pregnancy and use it for personal gain. Keep in mind that she could have very well made a lot of money off of that time in her life.

Instead, she chose her own health as well as the health of her baby over money and/or publicity. That, to me, is incredibly mature.

The way she went about the last nine months will ultimately benefit her and her child and I applaud her for taking this time to rest and take care of herself and her new daughter.

Congratulations to Kylie, I think she will be a great mom.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
