  3. Morning Sickness Misery

    Jennifer Dansicker says the term morning sickness is a misnomer. "It's really 'all day' sickness," she says. "Six weeks of constant, undeniable, miserable nausea and vomiting."

    "You're eating for two" may be a cute adage, but it shouldn't give you license to eat too much -- or the wrong foods -- while pregnant.

    The vast majority of American children probably were not traumatized by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, experts say.

    Every expectant mom knows that sleep will be catch-as-catch-can after her baby is born. But sleepless nights plague women throughout pregnancy, too.

  10. Girls Just Wanna Be Mean

    "They made it seem like something good, like an invitation or something," she says. "They were smiling.
