This means you'd have to feed yourself less than your body needs (a caloric deficit, aka a negative energy imbalance).

I'm *willing* this baby to be a girl. I think of her as a "her" rather than "baby" or "it." This is purely a reflection of desires. This *could* be our last baby, and if so I'd like to have one of each.
