Not pregnant, but thanks for pointing out the belly fat.

Can pregnant women eat store bought tarter sauce and mayonnaise?

Pregnant women are advised to not eat foods with raw eggs. I looked the the ingredients for standard store bought tarter sauce and it listed egg yolks. Is this safe to eat? Do all commercial products use pasteurized eggs? Is that a safe assumption to make?

Help me bond with my baby

I am 39 years old, 22 weeks pregnant with my first baby (a son) and I don't feel very maternal, for lack of a better word.

Help a pregnant lady get her Chupa Chups

Where can I get Chupa Chups in NYC? I'd be willing to order them online, but so far I've only seen them on dubious candy wholesaler sites that have $100 minimums and charge $7 shipping for $1 of candy. In addition to being wonderfully delicious in their own right, they actually make my nausea stop, so this is for quasi-medical purposes. Thanks!
