This is the time we must take for ourselves without apologies, especially when we still live in a country where Black women historically have had the highest maternal mortality rates. So for me, self-care has become paramount, particularly in the beginning stages. Knowing your body and what it needs, being able to be still and quiet enough to hear what it tells you. That’s why I used a First Response Early Result test as it can tell you if you’re pregnant 6 days sooner than your missed period. Don’t be afraid to look for a team that looks like you and can relate with a level of care that will make you feel your most comfortable. It’s your right. It’s our right. And we must demand not only what’s best for us, but for our community.

Together we can change these statistics, one woman at a time. Early Result Pregnancy Test detected the pregnancy hormone levels in 76% of pregnant women 5 days before their expected period.

Kelis shares a son, Knight, with her ex-hubby Nas and a son, Shepherd, with her husband Mike. Mike, a real estate agent, and Kelis have been married since 2014. During her second pregnancy with son Shepherd, the Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef told US Weekly that she had a hankering for tomatoes.

 

“I’m pregnant! I’m so excited! It’s really amazing,” the then 36-year-old told US, adding that she’s been craving tomatoes recently. “My neighbor grows tomatoes and leaves them on my doorstep and I’ll cut them up, use salt and pepper, and just eat them like that!”

Kelis and her family reside about two-and-a-half hours outside of L.A. on a remote farm she manages with her husband. She previously posted videos of her playing with baby chicks on their property.
