If you smoked a lot: Getting that high when you have a new-born baby is not fair to either you or the baby. If you are breast feeding, it is not a good idea to be using any drugs, and breast feeding is best for both you and baby bonding properly, as well as the baby's future health. It is great you stopped during pregnancy, consider stopping now to be the kind of mom you need and want to be for your baby. ...Read more

Why can't I fall pregnant? I've been trying naturally for over 6months. I have low iron but I've been pregnant once before so I know I can have babies.

Fertility: If you have low iron, you may be anemic, as an iron molecule is essential to making red blood cells. Your health is always a factor in your ability to get pregnant.

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. The amount of weigh you gain is up to you, as long as baby is growing properly. The uterus returns to normal size, when the baby is out. What you should be asking is, what is the best way to eat to get a healthy baby!!!! Get your priorities straight. ...Read more
