Health and nail/skin: Genetic plays a major role in the health and appearance of your skin/nails/hair. If you experienced a significant, prolonged illness, the nails do become "sick" too and so won't be as healthy. So once you recovered and maintain a healthy lifestyle, your nails should be back to normal. If you were born with not so good nails, likely they will remain so. So live healthy. Consult doc. Good luck.

Can I drink diet drinks while pregnant?

Dr. Richard Chudacoff

Yes: Water is probably the best diet drink you can drink during pregnancy. Soft drinks, whether diet or not, are usually not the best drinks in pregnancy. I would suggest healthier drinks, such as juices, milk, electrolyte drinks such as gatorade or powerade rather than purely synthetic drinks. I would stay away from energy drinks.
