Advice for the newly pregnant

My Facebook feed seems to be full of pictures of 12 week scans; there's a lot of newly pregnant people around in my social circle.

And for those newly pregnant people, it's a very unusual time of transition.  They've just emerged from the three months of secrecy where they've been making excuses about avoiding alcohol and feeling quietly sick and are now ready to proudly spread their news.

I have been asked by a friend in this situation for my advice, so here it is.

San Pellegrino Sparkling Juice Drinks

Did you know that San Pellegrino Sparkling Grapefruit drink contains more sugar than Coca Cola? Per can, the San Pellegrino contains 39.9g of sugar, whilst Coke contains 35g.  That's nearly a teaspoon more.

It's a plain old sugary soft drink, dressed up to look not so.  And to be fair, they've done a pretty good job!  I imagine that there's plenty of people drinking these drinks, thinking that they're simply mineral water with a dash of fruit juice.  Ah, the power of branding.

I've not been around these parts for a while....

I've not been round these parts for a while; I've had a baby, which turns out to be quite time consuming.  Who knew?  He's nearly 18 months now, and so a bit bigger than he was in he picture.  They grow bigger - apparently that's normal.
