We're pregnant, but we're not perfect ...

This week's confession:

"I was told I couldn't eat during labor with my daughter. Most hospitals forbid you to have anything except ice because it might make you sick, and undigested food could interfere with anesthesia if that becomes necessary.

"But I tell you, 14-plus hours with no food took its toll on me. I WILL be sneaking food this time around. Who cares if you puke it up?! At least your body would absorb SOME of the sugars for energy!" -- anonymous
