I am amazed at moms here in ny who are running around the city days after giving birth…

During my first pregnancy, Ben Blair and I lived in Greece. My Greek doctor (who was very good — he went to Johns Hopkins and was super smart. I really liked him) gave me an ultrasound at every visit. Which is unheard of here in the States.

Also. During my first prenatal appointment, he asked me if I smoked. I said no. And he replied, "Well if you start, keep it to 3 cigarettes a day."

I just about fainted. Can you imagine an American doctor saying that? Too funny.
