While You Were Puking: Pregnancy Medical News Weekly Update #26Aela Mass
It’s that time again! Do these weeks just blow on by or what?
One of the craziest things about compiling these updates is seeing how conflicting and how quickly changing the medical information for pregnant women is.

But even with the back-and-forth info we get, I still thinks it’s important to stay on top of what’s going on in the pregnancy medical news world. Gather the information and do with it what you will. But at least know what’s out there.
So, without further ado, I present to you this week’s round-up…
