    Long gone are her days of downing shots and partying until the wee hours of the morning. Nowadays, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley rings in her birthday with pounds of cake and her favorite pregnancy craving... pizza!

    In honor of her 28th birthday, the former Jersey Shore party girl, and current star of Snooki & JWOWW partied with her fiance, Roger Matthews, and crew at the Drunken Monkey (owned by Mob Wives' Big Ang) on Staten Island Friday night. The Stir was there to celebrate with her and to get a little insight about how pregnancy is changing her ways.

    Mark and Britt Sherman are not only a super adorable couple, they're actually pretty inspirational as well. They've served as missionaries in Papua New Guinea and Tanzania, and plan to head back to east Africa as soon as possible. They're also prolific bloggers with amazing stories to tell over at Those Crazy Shermans.

    But they've had something else going on in their lives too -- a new baby! After spending years thinking they didn't want kids, they had a change of heart and captured Britt's pregnancy in the best time-lapse "growing belly" video I've ever seen.

    What is it about a woman's pregnant body that makes some people want to run for the hills when you're around and others spew every nonsensical thing they can possibly utter about bumps and bellies while in your presence?

    Actress Olivia Wilde said it best on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno this week. She joked that some people go as far as asking her if she wants to ride on a roller coaster or drink whiskey when the fact that she is pregnant is plain as day. I consider these folks the best of the bunch. They've chosen to lie remain silent about her expanding body rather than draw attention to it and risk humiliating themselves and hurting her feelings if, let's say, she's just bloated at the moment and not really pregnant. 

    But far too many people still consider it their duty to comment on your tummy when you're expecting. And there's just no need.

    As a pregnant woman, I know my husband deals with a lot of my irrational nonsense. The other day I cried for no reason -- right as he was telling me Costco's vodka brand is similar to Grey Goose. I mean, totally batty, I know. But it's not all our fault -- really! There are certain things that, if your partner is clueless enough to do any of them while you're pregnant, might just lead you to want to take an old-fashioned frying pan to his head.

    Ah, pregnancy. A time in a woman's life when she glows, looks sexier than ever, and is showered with constant attention, adoration, and free foot rubs.

    Right. That's how you could describe your first pregnancy and you wouldn't be too far off. But if this is your second pregnancy, you need to prepare yourself because things are going to be a wee bit different.

    I held out as long as I could, but this week I had to do it. I had to buy what I dread spending money on -- awful, terrible maternity clothing.

    This is my second pregnancy. In my experience, morning sickness fades after the 12th week and, though annoying and painful, at the very least, the Breast Gods have the decency to give you nice boobs to compensate for the constant tenderness you experience above the waist. But there are few good things to be said about maternity clothing.

    After giving birth and looking back at pre-baby life, a lot of women say they were reborn after becoming moms -- that their lives changed for the better and they can't imagine a world without their children. But one mom can actually say that her baby may have -- literally -- saved her life. 

    After noticing that she had developed inexplicable swelling under her ribs, Nicola Weller visited doctors and received the most dreadful news of all: she had a tumor in her uterus and they were unsure whether it was cancerous. The 29-year-old had to wait what must have been the worst 12 weeks of her life until her next medical scan. And that's when she received the most amazing news of her life.

    So you gave up your delicious daily cup of coffee when you found out you were pregnant. Good for you! You won't go within eight feet of unpasteurized cheese or shellfish and you're even trying to swear off canned foods. You're doing everything right -- or else you think you are. And then you find out that tea -- even green tea -- which you assumed was not only safe, but beneficial for you and your baby, could actually be far more dangerous than your cup of Joe. Here's what you need to know.

    Just when the nausea and fatigue of your first trimester wear off, a new pregnancy misery appears: Aches and pains in your belly and in your groin area. Congratulations, it's probably normal, and it's probably just round ligament pain. This is when the thick ligament that connects your womb to your groin area, and that supports your growing uterus, stretches and strains.

    It's another one of those pregnancy symptoms that feels like something is wrong, but actually means everything is proceeding as normal. But how do you really know when it's round ligament pain and not something more serious? Here are a few ways you can tell and how you can ease the pain.

    Pregnancy is all sorts of magical, life changing, and surreal -- but it's also a crazy roller coaster ride of emotions that never seems to slow down.

    Let me guess ... ever since you found out you were expecting, your mood has been all over the place, right? One day you're hot, the next day you're cold. And then you're up, down, and everything in between. (Like that song.)

    Yeah -- you're not alone. We've all been there.
