Dexter Roberts, 22, stood out on this season of American Idol, not just because of his smooth country crooning but because of his easygoing demeanor and always present smile. Nothing seemed to shake him, and even after landing in the bottom two this week, he took it all in stride. “I just don’t know what happened this week,” he shares. “I had a great time on the show, and I know I’ll have a great time on tour.”

Spring has always been known as a time for new beginnings. If you and your partner are expecting a baby, it’s best to be prepared in every sense of the word. Whether this is your first or fourth child, it helps to read up on pregnancy and parenting. We pulled together five articles from our partners to help you on the journey ahead:

1. Go green: Earth day is right around the corner, and these celebrity moms are doing everything they can to do their part. Whether it’s eating organic or purchasing recycled goods, every little bit can help protect Mother Nature, so why not get your children started young? Simple choices, such as cloth diapering, can go a long way. (CelebrityBabyScoop.com)

2. Stay active: Being the healthiest you can be can be incredibly important to both you and your unborn child. While you won’t be able to go hard at the gym anymore, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your workout altogether. Check out this set of pregnancy friendly exercise moves to keep you active and moving. (GalTime.com)

3. Break from routine: When it comes to raising a family, it’s easy to get comfortable and find yourself in the same routine. In order to become a better parent — or person in general — sometimes, you need to break from that routine and walk a different path. This can include anything from physical activities to expressing unique ideas and opinions. If you’re confident in yourself, your children will grow up with you as a role model and structure themselves in the same way. (YourTango.com)

4. Sleep train your infant: It’s no secret that the first few months are going to be full of sleepless nights, but at four months, the baby is developmentally ready to be put on a schedule. That means sleeping peacefully through the night for both you and your little one. What parent doesn’t want that? Take a look at this article to find out more! (GalTime.com)

5. Live your dreams: Some people put a lot of focus into becoming a parent. Comedian Mike Myers was no different. In the previous years, he stated that fatherhood was something he always dreamed of. His wife has made that possible for him — not once, but twice. The couple welcomed a son in 2011 and a daughter earlier this week. (YourTango.com)

The bun is almost ready to come out of the oven! Jenni “JWoww” Farley is three months away from her due date. The Jersey Shore cast member posted a sonogram of her baby girl onto her website Tuesday, April 15th. She went on to write, “HOLY S–T! Pregnancy and me don’t mix. I keep saying to myself, ‘how can women enjoy this s–t?!’ I’m always on edge because every appointment I find something else that’s crazy and unexpected.” According to UsMagazine.com, the reality star and mom-to-be also told readers about her recent pregnancy scare when doctors announced the baby had a “small cyst on her brain,” later revealed as a choroid plexus cyst (which would later go away): “I go numb and tears are just flowing. I can’t even begin to try and stop the tears… Literally hysterical to the point where I was hyperventilating thinking, ‘[oh my god] I did something so horrible to my daughter?’… Fast forward to this checkup which brings me to 25 weeks, AKA six months. My daughter’s cyst went away!!!” Another pregnancy problem Farley and fiancé Roger Mathews had to face was a low-lying placenta. The couple was told to abstain from sex for a month: “I literally burst out laughing hysterically,” Farley wrote about the doctor’s prescription for abstinence. “Roger swears I paid him to say [it]. So now no sex for a month!!!” Farley confirmed the placenta problem has since gone away, too. “My placenta is higher so I’m no longer at risk (don’t tell Roger).”
