In my first pregnancy and postpartum period, I had a hard time staying in front of my need for B vitamins. Baby needs a lot and stress itself eats them up. I would definitely supplement.

However, my second child was born with club feet. I was in denial about the diagnosis -- How is it possible to have club feet with a...
If it's cold enough to freeze, that would be my best guess. It does tend to get a little yellow and overflow.
Good luck pregnant mamas!
Was there much of an equity relationship with the dairy? Some herd shares seem more equity-oriented than others and I wonder what happens when they are ordered to stop. Is some part of the equity redistributed? Just curious.
Were you in the herd share associated with the outbreak or did a second herd share also get closed down?
You gals work fast.
