I'm way past the baby thing too. Just had my 50th birthday 4 days ago. I have moved on to fur-children (2 dogs).
But interesting topic as the following research has just come out -
Mum's diet key to baby health:
Expectant mothers' diets could be creating an obesity timebomb for their unborn children, a groundbreaking study involving New Zealand scientists has revealed. The study of 300 children has shown for the first time that what a woman eats and drinks during her pregnancy can alter her child's DNA. That change can determine whether her child will grow up to be obese, and can even increase the risk of a child getting diabetes or heart disease later in life.
