I don't know about some of that stuff. I don't know if my diet was high fat when I had my girls but it certainly wasn't fully healthy either. Both of them were born big in my opinion near 9 lbs. but now they are 6 and 3 and skinny as can be. I also heard after I had my son that eating too much meat while pregnant could cause his sperm to be sterile. I hope that isn't true because while I was pregnant with him I craved steak constantly.
