Healthy Pregnancy Series Introduction

By | July 7, 2010

Welcome to a new series!  For the next several months, we’ll be talking all about healthy pregnancy.  Some posts will be short and related to the development of your baby, while others will be longer and more involved, talking about nutrition, prenatal testing, and lots more.  This is supposed to be “THE” guide to having a healthy, hopefully hands-off (medically speaking) pregnancy.  Honestly I had hoped to be expecting again by the time I started this series, but I’m not, so hopefully this will cure my baby fever!  We’ll see.  It’s hard when your little ones turn 1, isn’t it?  My youngest turns 1 in only 9 days!
