If you are due in September 2010-you might want to join in this exchange in addition to moving along the trimesters. That way you never leave your due date buddies behind-whether they are ahead or behind you in the month!
Pregnant at last or Whoa! Surprise! We are having a baby-you still need to decide how to eat during pregnancy. Unfortunately, taking pregnancy as a free pass to eat whatever/whenever doesn't do the baby any good and does you even worse.
Despite the rumors-breastfeeding doesn't magically cause all those pounds to drop in most people-especially if they gained too much weight during pregnancy. If you don't want to spend your baby's first year or 5 on a diet trying to lose the baby weight-keep a handle on it now (unless your doctor recommends something else-for instance if you go into pregnancy underweight)
The resource linked above has some good guidelines on eating for a healthy pregnancy AND tells you where all that weight is going!View Thread
Some good tips in the above linked article on managing morning sickness.
I didn't have any morning sickness with my son-but I did with my girls! Ginger helped mine. I discovered The Ginger People products after I had my youngest child. I wish I could be morning sick again just to see if the chews and drinks would have helped even more. If one of you has tried them for morning sickness-let me know. In the meantime, I will just eat them because I enjoy the taste.View Thread
