Swimming: Swimming is a great exercise as you get farther along in a pregnancy. Aside from being an excellent form of cardio fitness, it is less traumatic on the body and the buoyancy makes it easier to exercise with the extra weight that comes with the pregnancy.

No: This is an overblown recommendation in these pregnancy books. Tilting the mother to the left enhances blood flow to the baby and is beneficial in women who have serious medical problems such as severe hypertension, lupus, twins or triplets. The average pregnant woman can sleep however she wants.

Yes.: In the very severe cases, delirium tremens can cause fatal seizures, although most withdrawal fatalities occur from falls while mentally incapacitated.
Dr. Ed Friedlander

Have somebody with some medical credentials and the ability to prescribe some mild medication take you through this. And congratulations on your decision to quit -- you are doing a huge favor for yourself and others.
