What to do if i want a small baby so i don't get too fat during pregnancy. How can I choose my babies size?
Pregnancy: You can't choose your babies size. The size of your baby has nothing to do with getting fat during pregnancy.

What you should be asking is, what is the best way to eat to get a healthy baby!!!! Get your priorities straight. ...Read more

Is it true that palmatic acid or palm oil turn into soap in the digestive tract of babies? Is it OK to eat palm oil during pregnancy?
Palm oil : Palm oil got its bad reputation as a highly saturated fat and should be eaten only in moderation at any time, not just during pregnancy.
