Cooking During Pregnancy
You're being the best partner you know how to be, and one of the things you're doing to earn that position is to play chef more than usual. (If you don't like to cook, bringing in takeout qualifies too, as long as it's something she's craving.) During pregnancy, what's on the menu isn't as important as what's off. For the time being, forget about rare burgers, Caesar salad, sushi, or seared fish, all of which are fetal no-nos. To avoid heartburn, steer clear, too, of anything that's overly spicy (unless your partner has specifically requested it) or greasy. Because she's been told to eat at least five times a day, dinner doesn't have to be a five-course meal. Quick, easy, and digestible does it.
