The most recent research I've read is that the risk of miscarriage increases at around 5 cups of coffee a day. And that just means an increase in risk, not that miscarriage is inevitable or even...

I don't think so, at least not from my experience. My plug was definitely mucus-y. Yellow and very thick. I know egg white mucus (and various other kinds of discharge) can increase a lot toward...

The vast majority of cheeses in the U.S. are pasteurized. Raw milk cheese is pretty hard to find (though not impossible). I ate a ton of soft cheeses this pregnancy, in large part because the risk...

My main piece of advice is to try not to overthink things (not helpful, I know). Most of mothering is pretty intuitive in my experience. If your nipples start to feel chapped, slap something on...
