Moms always make us feel like we were born special, but this miracle baby actually was. Ten-week-old baby Silas was born premature at just 26 weeks in Cedars Sinai medical center in Los Angeles, California. During his delivery via C-section, doctors uncovered that his amniotic sac didn't burst, which means he was born in his water bag.

In this case, baby Silas survived and his hospital photo is precious. The photo of him in the sac is pretty graphic.

According to a study published in the Hong Kong Medical Journal, only 1 in five hundred thousand births suffer from this. Wait until you hear what else the doctors discovered about this case! I have goose bumps.

She truly looks like a different person, but Smith's issue was the hanging excess skin that came afterwards. I was in shock when I saw the new Kaitlyn!
Lemons are one of the most common, affordable and readily available super foods around, but many of us probably aren't using them to their full potential. If you're an avid cook, you probably keep some on hand at all times, but if not, you may rarely see a fresh lemon outside of the wedge hanging from your water glass at a restaurant.

Here are some ways this super-versatile, flavor-enhancing fruit can improve your health:
While satisfying cravings is important, keeping a balanced diet during pregnancy is also just as necessary. Foods high in fat may taste good, but it could potentially put your baby at risk of serious health issues long after giving birth.
