wants and needs

since we realized im pregnant, i have been to 2 pre-natal checkups already, 2 ultrasounds, and hundreds of cravings.

but there are foods that i stay away from, because they are dangerous to me and my baby.  some item may sound weird but there is nothing to lose if i abstain from them for just 9 months, to be safe, like pain medications, even if they say it's safe.  that's why I thank God that my headache does not last that long, coz i don't want any complications.

i also do not eat soft cheese anymore, you know, the white cheese that goes with salad?  i loved it with khubus.  and liver spread, coz too much vitamin a in liver and im already taking a multivitamin.  vitaminosis happens when you take too much vitamin a and it sort of backfires with complications.  what else, left-over salads and cold cut sandwiches (unless microwaved steaming hot), basically uncooked food, for fear of contaminations; raw eggs or eggs not cooked properly, unpasteurized milk (i called a milk manufacturer once just to check if the bottled milk im drinking has been pasteurized {idiot})!

and then some which have no scientific reason but basically old wive's tales like eggplant, coz it will cause purple discoloration to the baby's skin.

and then those that i want but i don't really need, like biscuits (currently finishing my 3rd can), candies, ice cream, soft drinks and potato chips :D
