Memorable pregnancy stories of 2012

Posted by Lara Salahi December 30, 2012 06:55 AM

2012 is winding down fast, which means I can count the number of days on both hands that baby is scheduled to arrive. Of course, hardly anything goes as scheduled, but it's exciting nonetheless.

More Pregnant, Nursing Women Iodine Deficient, Some Experts Say

Posted by Lara Salahi December 19, 2012 09:43 AM

Battling inevitable weight gain; feeling healthy about it

Posted by Lara Salahi November 27, 2012 08:53 AM

It’s one of the first things a woman is asked to do when she enters the exam room at a prenatal wellness visit -- step on the scale.

The number climbs slightly with every visit. It’s perhaps the one period in life where it should.

Still, in the back of my mind, I can’t help but think about life after pregnancy and
whether the 20-plus added pounds that have come on so far will ever come off.
