Prenatal Multi

I’m very open in admitting that my first two pregnancies were not at all healthy. With Arianna, I was stressed out and lost weight, living on crackers and tacos between [nine-month] morning sickness.

A Newer Me

Recently, I was able to add wheat germ to this list of yummy foods. keep reading
