Hospital Reviews

I am half way through my pregnancy and I have yet to gain any weight. In fact I found a print out from a scale at the GNC store where I weighted myself a month before (June) I conceived and I was 160 pounds and 4 oz. At my last prenatal visit I weighted in at 149 pounds. The LPN said to me, "what's going on, you're supposed to be gaining weight  . . . you're 18 weeks already." So now I have a complex! I've been reading the message boards from the that corresponds to my expected delivery month and most of the girls on there said they have gained at least 10 pounds. Sh*$?, if they have gained that much weight by their fifth month by month eight they are going to be big as houses. I so don't want that to be me. To tell the truth just this week (week 21) is when I began to feel hungry more than twice a day. It's weird. I asked my mother how much weight she gained when she was expecting me and she said 50 pounds. DAMMMMMMMMMMMMMNNNN!!! That is just not going to work for me. 


Vexed . . . 


Anyway this is not what I wanted to discuss in this blog post. Last night I couldn't get comfortable enough to fall asleep before 2:00 a.m. so I did a little research. I began my search by looking for the best maternity care hospitals. This is what I arrived upon. The following hospitals have the best ratings in New Jersey.
