“One strength of the study is that it tried to ferret out whether women who say they quit smoking actually did quit,” Samuel, who was not involved in the research, told Reuters Health. On the other hand, she said the results may not apply to the current U.S. population. “There were very few obese women in this study,” Samuel said. According to the Institute of Medicine, women with a normal pre-pregnancy weight should gain between 25 and 35 pounds during pregnancy and obese women should gain 11 to 20 pounds.

‘That whole glow thing is a joke!’ America’s Next Top Model’s Lisa D’Amato reveals her bump as she opens up about pregnancy
‘When people say I’m glowing, I tell them it’s because someone needs to put on the AC. That whole ‘pregnancy glow’ thing is a joke! ‘There is nothing pretty about pregnancy except creating a life other than that I think it’s pretty gross.’ Lisa’s also on an emotional roller-coaster, revealing that she and husband Adam Friedman ‘couldn’t be more excited and scared sh-tless at the same time’ for the baby’s arrival. The model has done all she can to keep fit and healthy in the meantime, including doing low-impact workouts four days a week and being disciplined about her diet. And Lisa appears to be healing well from a freak accident in January that left her with severe facial injuries. The 5ft 9in blonde, who won Cycle 17 of Tyra Banks’ ANTM in 2011, had just wrapped filming indie movie Cowboys and Indians and was ‘monkeying around’ with a pal on set. She was attempting to do a handstand up against the crew member, who has not been named, but instead, her handstand partner fell on top of her, breaking her nose.

Coffee, wine and sushi! New pregnancy book says OK
The approach being thinking carefully through all of these decisions, getting the best data that you can and then structuring the decision in a way that takes into account your personal preferences, tolerance for risk and all the kinds of things we should be thinking about every day. AP Do you anticipate blowback from women and doctors because youre an economist and not a medical professional who helps manage pregnancies? Oster For sure, but I certainly do not envision women reading this book and saying, Oh, like, I can deliver my own baby now, right? I think that theres a real sense in which pregnancy should be something that you do with your doctor, but I think that for a lot of women the time you have with your doctors is limited and it can be difficult to get all of the answers to your questions. AP Are most pregnant women ill-informed? Are doctors and other pregnancy professionals lax in keeping up to date on research that might lead to more specific recommendations? Oster I think we see sometimes where practice lags behind recommendations.
