Still sorting out how to balance your new bun in the oven with an old workout routine? Well, the timing is perfect to put high-tech fitness trackers to the test to monitor safe prenatal exercises, heart rates and sleep patterns while staying healthy and fit for the next nine months (and beyond, of course!). New moms must keep moving for optimal well-being, suggests G. Thomas Ruiz, MD, OB/GYN Lead at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. "We encourage expectant women to engage in exercise or physical activity on a regular basis throughout their pregnancy," he advises. "Women who are physically active during pregnancy tend to have smaller babies, which most women who are pushing out a kid don't mind." But what about the anxieties of pregnant moms who fear the harmful effects of radiation from such devices? "There has never been a study to demonstrate that background radiation from a cell phone or a Bluetooth device has had a deleterious effect on the outcome of pregnancy," says Dr. Ruiz. "There has been no data to determine it. We do ultrasounds on a regular basis, which is sending sound energy to the baby so we can do diagnostic work, and that is at a much higher level of energy than a cell phone. It's never been shown to demonstrate harmful effects towards the baby or the pregnancy. So moms can use their trackers to their heart's content." So stay strong and count on, Mama! From Fitbit to Bellabeat, here are are our best picks to keep new moms stepping out in style.

Crusader Castle Teutonic Knigt by Osprey PublishingItem Number: OSPFOR19The original forced conversion of pagan Livonia, what is n...ow the Baltic states of Latvia and Estonia, was carried out by a military order known as the Brethren of the Sword.

Pook Press celebrates the great Golden Age of Illustration in children's literature. Many of the earliest children's books, partic...ularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

Throughout his career he had developed a very individual style that is was to influence a whole generation of children, artists and other illustrators. His haunting humour and dreamlike romance adds to the enchantment and fantasy of children's literature. read more
Four serious kids with unexamined aspirations. A conformist high school with trivial goals. An oblivious town. A society imperiled... by human corruption and environmental pollution. The poet Yeats had it right: Things are falling apart; the centre cannot hold; the falcon, unable to hear the falconer's call, flies in a widening gyre. Anarchy—life without unifying commitments—is set loose on Gradgrind, Ohio. Then a teacher brings the kids to the round table in his dining room, where they encounter Socrates' unbending challenges in Plato's Alcibiades. The kids rediscover the ageless gravity of the centre. They hear the call of the falconer. They become knights of a modern round table. Steve Hays, longtime professor of Greek Classics at Ohio University, spins a Dickensian tale of negligent society, heartless villains, and a stable center of unflinching honesty that makes kids strong and revives communities. Not only high school kids, but also college kids and idealistic adult-kids will find this story entertaining, enlightening, and personally challenging.The Falconer's Call is best read with its partner volume Refining Golden by Frank Kaput (a pseudonym for Steve Hays), a translation of Plato's Alcibiades I. read more
