Thankful Mamas

A little thing of beauty for all us mamas, and especially us wellrounded mamas, to celebrate our thankfulness for our wonderful children.

And for those with and without children, take a moment to consider thankfulness to your own mother, or to whomever was important in a positive way in your life.

Hello,I just stumbled upon your website and blog, which I found very,very helpful. I am actually a transgendered male, 20 years old and 6 months pregnant with my first child, a baby boy. The doctor that I was seeing told me that I should aim for not gaining any weight at all during my pregnancy, when I was about 207 lbs at the beginning. I haven't been going extremely overboard, or using the excuse of "eating for two." However I am now a little over 6 months along, and I have gained about 50 lbs. I do not have gestational diabetes or high blood pressure. Everything I have read is that I shouldn't gain more than 25 lbs, and I still have 3 months to go! Do you believe there are risks in this much weight gain, or do you have any thoughts on this? thanks,
