Any woman who has ever been pregnant knows that food can be a central issue for an entire pregnancy. Morning sickness can make food choices a difficult and sometimes bizarre dilemma.

The fewer foods you are able to actually keep down, the greater the preoccupation with food in general seems to be. And weight gain causes conflicting emotions. It means the baby is growing. But many woman aren't too happy about how much they are also growing.

Dr. Edward Szmuc, OB/GYN, steps into this delicate territory with some suggestions about healthy eating. He recommends lean meat and fish. He also recommends some types of cheese but advises against others which could be a source of infections.
