Tia Mowry Hardict Battles Back After Gestational Diabetes Diagnosis

Tia Mowry Hardrict recently revealed that she contracted gestational diabetes while pregnant with her second child, daughter Cairo Tiahna.

“After being diagnosed with #gestationaldiabetes, I was lost for words,” she captioned a video of herself and her trainer getting in some exercise. “Never ever did I think, THIS could happen to me. Most of the time, doctors say it will go away after birth, however, it does put you at a higher risk for diabetes later in life. Time to get back on track. Making healthy choices and moving :). 💪🏽 Follow my @igtvworld for more updates! Xx”

She is correct! About half of all women who develop gestational diabetes are likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life according to the Centers for Disease Control. Babies too whose mothers have gestational diabetes are at higher risk of being born early, having low blood sugar, and developing obesity later in life.

The key is to eat healthy, maintain a healthy diet, that includes leafy vegetables, fruits and wholesome food to stave them off. Good for Mowry Hardrict for being proactive!

For those not yet pregnant or still in the early stages of your pregnancy, compared to usual care, lifestyle interventions reduced the overall risk of developing gestational diabetes by 32%. Watch your sugar and caloric intake, get plenty of prenatal exercise in like walking and monitor your food portions and you should be okay!

Meanwhile, the 2nd-time new mom has been keeping her fans and followers updated with her post natal plans and showing off photos of her hubby and son with Cory Hardrict’s dead ringer, baby Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, who has the same monogram  (CTH) as big brother Cree Taylor Hardict, similar to how their cousins, Tamera Mowry-Housley‘s children have the same monogram (ATH): Aden Tanner Housley and Ariah Talea Housley.

Thank You Tamera Mowry-Housley for Raising Awareness About C-Section Postpartum Woes

Tamera Mowry-Housley shared some of her own personal insight into some of the pains that women who undergo a C-Section endure when viewers of her FOX panel talk show The Real started to reply to a segment today on the show.

One follower who replied to her general tweet about the realities of C-section especially when you’re nursing.

“I know sum1 whose c-section stitching came undone just from tryin to get out of the shower,” the Twitter user Eunice responded.

To that, The Real co-host said hers “came undone when” she “had to pick up” her son, Aden. Ouch!

Mowry-Housley and her husband FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley welcomed daughter Ariah Talea in July 2015 and son Aden Tanner in November 2012.

What followed was heartwarming and great for awareness building. Many other users offered their own stories which could elevate the understanding among those who have never had a C-section or have misconceptions about it.

I know personally,I could relate to the one about the guts on the tray. My husband almost passed out when she made the mistake of peering over the surgery screen and got an eyefull of entrails! Eeeek!

“Women don’t get enough credit for enduring this surgery(they put your organs on a tray, my Husband looked)&then going right into motherhood,” a woman named Dawn Venosa Mannix added to the discussion.

“It hurt to laugh, sneeze, cough, pee. Everything hurts,” chimed in user named Beach Bunni.  “We still have to care for our newborn while healing. It makes us stronger though.”

So true, sister!

Writing for HuffPo Parents, blogger Kate Auletta offers 9 things no one tells you about C-Section.

DURING THE SURGERY

1. That “mild tugging sensation” line was clearly first said by a man. Mild is perhaps the understatement of the century. You feel like the wind is being taken out of you as your teeth chatter from the anesthesia. This is not a surgery for claustrophobes, as you’re completely stuck on the table — arms pinned down — while the inability to breathe overwhelms you.

IN THE HOSPITAL

2. The catheter keeps you company in the days following birth because you can’t really walk to the bathroom without those trusty ab muscles helping you out (more on that below). And then, as in all cases with a catheter, you have to learn to pee again — the longer the catheter is in, it seems, the harder it is to remember how to pee. Also not fun when you have a nurse and some loved ones waiting outside the bathroom door and you feel like you’re 5 again.

3. Have someone teach you how to even get up and out of bed. Congratulations! Your ab muscles are completely non-existent now. The good news: Your arms are gonna get buff.

AT HOME

4. Do yourself a solid and go to your local drug store (or better yet, send someone else) to buy some big-ass high-waisted underwear. You’re not gonna want anything — zippers, buttons, elasticized underwear — coming near your stomach, especially the birth area, for a while.

5. Walking is a challenge. Your core is called your core for a reason. Go easy on yourself.

6. Those drugs are your best friend. Give yourself some time to wean off the heavy stuff. Stock up on Aleve, which you’ll also need daily, and be prepared to use it A LOT.

7. I’m getting really real here now: Get some Colace. Your first bowel movement will hurt that much more since you have no stomach muscles with which to push. But man, will you be proud when you walk out of that bathroom.

8. You can’t lift anything because of how it can affect your core, and you can’t really lean over to even empty the dishwasher. Basically, best case scenario is that you’re an immobile, milk-producing machine with a baby attached to your breast sideways cause you’re scared he or she will kick the scar.

9. Don’t worry. No matter how your child is born, it’ll still likely be the best thing that ever happens to you, you tired shell of your former self.

Thank you!

Tamera Mowry-Housley on why braids are best for Labor, Delivery and New Motherhood

 

tamera mowry braids

The other half of our fave celeb mom twins, Tamera Mowry-Housley is now sporting long box braids.

The actress, who co-stars as a panelist on the daytime talk show The Real,  this past Wednesday, July  1 welcomed her second child, daughter Ariah Talea, with husband FOX news correspondent Adam Housley.

This week, she posted a photo of herself when she was still pregnant rocking the protective style which is commonly worn among ethnic women.

Many pregnant women get their hair in braids right before giving birth because they know it will be a low maintenance style that is great to wear during labor and delivery. And afterwards,  when a new mom is busy with a newborn, braids are a no-fuss style. Those reasons are among the 5 Tamera explained why she got some gorgeous long box braids.

They’re not as long as the super butt-length braids her sister Tia Mowry Hardrict rocked recently.

Tamera had her own individual take and they  look great!

 

 

Check out Tamera’s blog to see the five reasons she offers for rocking box braids right before and after giving birth HERE!

‘The Real’s Tamera Mowry-Housley welcomes daughter, Ariah Talea

tamera and fam

Congratulations to one half of our favorite celebrity twins Tamera Mowry-Housley who welcomed her second child, daughter Ariah Talea Housley on Wednesday.

Tamera and her husband Adam Housley  confirmed the news to PEOPLE magazine.

“We are beyond overjoyed and blessed with our beautiful baby girl. Aden already made a welcome video for her,” they shared with the site.

The new arrival has the same initials as her 2 1/2-year old brother: Aden Tanner Housley.

It’s similar to the tradition her parents had of giving all their children the same initials: TDM.

The Real talk show co-host announced her pregnancy news in January and her hubby shared the gender live on air during the show, much to Tamera’s surprise as she had asked him to conceal the baby’s sex from her.

Adam and Tamera’s twin Tia Mowry Hardrict both tweeted out their own personal notes of glee about the delivery.

We are sure Ariah will be as gorgeous as her baby bro.

Aww! Congrats!
