Thanksgiving is so close, I can almost smell the turkey now … and the mashed potatoes, and the gravy, and the green bean casserole. (Hey, a pregnant girl has to eat!) Of course, the best thing about Thanksgiving is the time you spend with your family and friends, celebrating the joys of life and the blessings of the year.

Forget pickles and ice cream – pregnancy cravings run the gamut of food choices! Would you believe I don’t even like pickles? I dislike them when I’m not pregnant and I don’t like them while I'm pregnant either. Go figure.

It’s amazing how each pregnancy has different symptoms, different feelings, and different cravings. ...

When you think about it, pregnancy is kind of amazing. Our bodies grow and change in incredible ways to fit the needs of a growing baby.

The first time I was pregnant, I was in awe of what was happening to me. Sure, I had nausea, intense fatigue, “pregnancy brain,” and insane mood swings, but I also couldn’t get enough of the ...
