Heinz sight is 20/20, but when I first noticed that I put the ketchup in the freezer, it didn’t occur to me that I might be pregnant. When I attended a parent ed lecture and was talking to a mom I’ve known for over two years when another mom I have been in class with twice a week since September walked up, I couldn’t remember either of their names to introduce them to each other for the life of me. And I beelined for frozen yogurt after the class at 8pm. By myself. Sure, there’s THE boobs, but I really thought I was starting to see results from my chest presses in my weight class. Nonetheless, I FINALLY decided to take a prego test and to my pleasant surprise, I am pregnant for the FOURTH time… And now, we just found out we are having TWINS (yep, that makes FIVE kids). As I prepare to dust off my maternity clothes from 2003 AGAIN, I realized that my knowledge is likely out of date, too. Breezy Mama turned to Dr. Jason Rothbart to find out what has changed medically in the last two years and what I can expect as a geriatric (yep, over 35 = OLD) pregnancy. Plus! Whether gender prediction kits really work and helpful tips for nausea.
What’s new NOW? Any new testing in the last two years?
