I had a baby and a puppy at the same time. Cadie, my youngest turned 7 in June. Gracie will be 7 in December. Would never do that again!

Thank you
The most important thing to do is STEP AWAY FROM DOCTOR GOOGLE.

The risks of getting listeria from deli meat are incredibly low. I chose not to worry about it, but I also very rarely eat deli meat. If you want to eat it and not worry just do the microwave thing that Sparks mentioned.

The whole caffeine thing bothers me. I've seen studies that say OMGONECUPISTOOMUCH and studies that say as long as you're not drinking 10+ cups a day you're totally fine. From what I've read and researched (I used PubMed) the main risk in the first trimester and it's not proven that there's a link between caffeine and miscarriage, only a correlation. I drank one-two cups of coffee a day and I'd have a soda in the afternoon every once in awhile.

Honestly, your doctor will tell you the main things to stay away from. If you want to know why, ask them, and make them answer. If they don't have a good answer ask for data to back it up. My doctors never minded answering my question (although they did get a bit flustered when I asked for sources to back things up).

And I just came across this extremely awesome article that pertains to everything we're talking about.

Take Back Your Pregnancy

I especially think the alcohol studies are interesting because WOW people get judgey about drinking during pregnancy.

ETA: Here's another one. Light Drinking in Pregnancy Not Linked to Development Problems in Childhood, Study Suggests

Drinking while breastfeeding isn't much less judged.

I have a beer or a glass of wine whenever. If I want another, I wait until the next feed but studies that I've read say that someone my size would likely be fine with two.

But if people see you with a drink in one hand and a baby on your boob, they give great reactions.

The problem with alcohol is that you can never know exactly what is developing at exactly which moment/day, and unlucky timing can be the difference between something you'd only see on a brain scan if at all, and something that has physical or psychological impacts. As someone who works with many children with FASD, some with mothers who drank very little, or only before they knew they were pregnant, etc... I just don't see how it's worth an unknown risk. There have been opposing studies showing even very light drinking having crippling effects based on timing, so I just wouldn't.

two year old here as well. Bedtime isn't often too bad, but dear god, naptime. Today he fell asleep in the car. He woke up when we got home, but is pissy he's awake, but too pissy to realize he can just go back to sleep. The yelling...oh...the yelling.

Well now I have puppy and baby fever. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.

I love that when Zora has a temper tantrum (and she does.) I can just put her in the hallway until she falls asleep. With a baby... not so much.
