Italian pregnant women

My son was conceived in China, and I spent my first trimester working in Shanghai, followed by a summer in New York City, before moving to Milan, where he was born. I am now halfway through my second pregnancy and, assuming all goes as planned, my daughter will be born in Amsterdam, where my Dutch husband and I recently moved.
Crissy. Age: 25. I will paint your modest leisure with not modest erotic fantasies and unforgettable rest. Everything you dreamed about, but embarrassed to translate into reality, let's do it together.
Is that normal? What about that? Holy hell what is that? In Japan do people stop eating sushi? In Sweden do they cut out Herring?
Kate Mara. Age: 29. Gentle, affectionate, very passionate ... I am waiting for an adequate, clean man to visit ... A lot of pleasures and unforgettable impressions await you!
And going to Italy! Those two things are both totally awesome — congrats! But what about eating in Italy while pregnant? Or just traveling around in general when you are expecting? I recently went through the experience of being pregnant in Italy and it was pretty great.
Research on fear of childbirth risk factors has produced heterogeneous results while being mostly done with expectant mothers from northern Europe, northern America, and Australia. Aims: The present research investigates whether fear of childbirth can be predicted by socio-demographic variables, distressing experiences before pregnancy, medical-obstetric factors and psychological variables with a sample of Italian primiparous pregnant women. Methods: Subjects, recruited between the 34th and 36th week of pregnancy, completed a questionnaire packet that included the Wijma Delivery Expectancy Questionnaire, the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, the Dyadic Adjustment Scale, the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, as well as demographic and anamnestic information. Fear of childbirth was treated as both a continuous and a dichotomous variable, in order to differentiate expectant mothers as with a severe fear of childbirth. Findings: Results demonstrate that anxiety as well as couple adjustment predicted fear of childbirth when treated as a continuous variable, while clinical depression predicted severe fear of childbirth.
