You’re pregnant, you’re hungry, the Crème brûlée was there, so was the creamy fettuchini. Cream is milk. Milk is a great source of calcium and all!
Besides, it's easy to tell a pregnant woman not to gain extra weight while sitting behind a desk!
However, is it worth it? Is it worth giving into all the cravings during pregnancy? Before you answer that, first "what are the dangers of gaining above the recommendation during pregnancy".…Continue

How far along: 32 weeks. Only 8 weeks left to go. HOLY CRAP!
Baby size: Lil’ Ziggy is about 3.75 lbs and 17 inches long. I don’t doubt it.
Belly: My belly pic seems to make it look like my belly is oddly pointy this week, but I think it’s just the jeans I’m wearing. I don’t think there’s a HUGE difference in terms of how big my belly is. It definitely feels heavy though.…

I fondly recall my husband holding our son, smiling at him and saying over and over again: "Da-da. Da-da. Da-da. Da-da." Our son smiled at him and laughed. And then, when he was six months old, our son said his first word: "Mama."…Continue

I have this repeated dream that I am lying strapped down to an operating table, people are moving quickly around me but ignoring my cries of pain. I pass out and its the end of me. The next thing I know I'm looking at myself from above the operating table. I'm gone and my husband is crying.
