My mom just gave me an old "Expectant Motherhood" manual her obstetrician gave her when she was carrying me in 1977. It offers much wisdom to the new mother of the 1970s, such as this gem:

"It seems clear that the newborn of mothers who smoke tend to weigh somewhat less than those of mothers who do not smoke. But whether this lower birth weight indicates an injurious effect has not been established. Regardless of these findings, most physicians recommend that smoking should be eliminated in pregnancy or at least curtailed to ten cigarettes or less a day."

In other news, I updated my old screengrab today. Yes, I'm still on Windows 98 on this PC. And yes, I'm still using 800x600 resolution. But at least I still have my hacked Start button icon, as per the article I wrote four years ago.

Yeah, I know, Windows 98.  Grumble grumble..
