Coffee. Real, fully caffeinated coffee. I miss that the most.

Okay, I'm a pregnancy food rule follower. Don't eat deli meat, certain soft cheeses, or drink tea. But......according to the author of "Bringing Up Bebe" (which is the true story of an American preggo living in Paris), French doctors do NOT restrict any food or beverages. They tell their patients to use common sense -- like if you're going to eat sushi, make sure it's good quality and not from a hole-in-the-wall type of place.....have half a glass of wine to celebrate, not half a bottle.....things like that. They also tell their patients to only gain 25 pounds -- and shockingly -- most women stick with that weight gain, probably because nothing is off limits and so cravings aren't as bad.

Just some "food for thought"
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!
