My question is, and I'm sorry that it detures from the very important topic of the health of our unborn, but why are the ads showing up in the comments on this website? They detract from our ability to focus on important issues.

Read & noted, thanks Nancy. VERY interesting! So, you really ARE what you eat, or, at least, what your mother ate!! :)

There are studies that found moms who diet even BEFORE pregnancy have lower birth weight babies that have a higher chance of obesity, diabetes and heart disease when grown. This article focused too much on mom's who gain weight which is a MSM obsession. It is too bad they put the consequences of dieting in the middle of the article.

... that's why a pregnant woman should not smoke or drink. Becoming a mother is not about yourself but about your baby! But putting on more than 35 pounds is not healthy either.

Weight gain of two stone (28 lbs) plus the weight of the baby is what they're saying is now OK , here in Australia anyway.
