Pregnancy can overwhelming and extremely pulling. There’s plenty of squeezed in schedules with your doctor, and a log of other activities. Other times you’d have to worry if your child is growing properly in your womb. The right add of nutrition could be effing annoying trying to get it right in your head.
“Pregnancy is a time when your body is changing a lot,” says Christine Masterson, M.D., an ob-gyn with Summit Medical Group in New Jersey.
