The Importance of Eggs During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is such a special time for soon-to-be-mommas. I remember being pregnant with my daughter, who is now almost 16 years old, and being so excited about becoming a new mother. I wanted to do everything right for my baby and bought the giant pregnancy books available at the time and read them religiously.
