Some recent research is indicating that is may not be so terrible if a pregnant woman consumes alcohol while pregnant. What do you think?
Drinking alcohol while pregnant has been pretty much taboo in recent decades. Yet, a series of 2012 studies conducted in Denmark may be indicating that a little sip of wine - or perhaps even a whole glass - during pregnancy could be OK. Howevery, the results of the studies are far from definitive and surely don't help mothers-to-be draw the line between what's safe and what's not. When I was pregnant, I didn't want to take any risks and I made sure not to even have a sip of wine. I have friends who drank a glass here or there while pregnant and their children appear to be just as happy and healthy as my own. What are your thoughts about drinking alcohol during pregnancy?

One of the challenges I had not expected when I got pregnant was where to buy maternity clothes. I figured I’d have no trouble finding places that carried maternity clothes I would want to wear. I was wrong. I found my selections in this region to be very limited. Department stores usually have a small section of maternity clothes and there is the company Destination Maternity has its chains, Motherhood Maternity and it’s higher-end line, a Pea in the Pod with stores locally in the King of Prussia Mall and the Springfield Mall. I found Target had a nice selection of maternity clothes, both in its stores (Malvern, Plymouth Meeting, Springfield at the Mall, and Springfield at 857 Baltimore Pike) and on its website. Beyond that, I found some …
