IT'S PROBABLY not necessary to point out that for any woman, regardless of what she does for a living, being a working mom isn't a full-time job - it's two full-time jobs, at least. But there is one, somewhat exclusive group of local working women whose shared profession brings with it pressures and conditions most mothers don't have to negotiate. Women who work on-air in television may even have it a little tougher than most who earn a living while raising a family. They have to worry about how their pregnancy will affect their on-camera look, for instance.

Pregnancy is a normal physical state and shouldn't be viewed as either bewildering or strange. Nor should pregnancy be feared because of any supposed lasting ill effects on the body. By taking a common-sense approach to eating and following a simple exercise routine approved by an obstetrician, most women can feel wonderful during pregnancy and return to regular body shape and fitness levels without too much difficulty after giving birth. Leading sports gynecologists recommend that, during pregnancy, workouts be continued but pared down.

A subject as complex and emotional as pregnancy defies simplification, so don't expect to watch March of Dimes Presents: Take Charge of Your Pregnancy with less than your full attention. Otherwise it will soon leave you behind. Sponsored by the March of Dimes and with Candice Bergen as the de rigueur celebrity host, the CBS/Fox Video program (90 minutes, $29.98) is an information-packed overview of the many concerns and issues encountered during pregnancy. Although actress (and recent mother)

ONCE AGAIN, the Daily News shows its liberal bias by completely degrading abstinence-only programs. Has the editorial writer read the most-recent statistics on teenage - and younger - pregnancies? It is pretty obvious that not only is the abstinence program not working - but I think the same could be said about condom giveaways and Planned Parenthood programs. If memory serves me correctly, the latter two programs are also government-funded programs that I assume are also staffed by liberal cronies of the Democrats.

Claire Gawinowicz Oreland Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter's pregnancy is a perfect example of how, despite the best intentions of parents to prevent it, a teenager can still get pregnant. By choice, Palin's daughter is going to have the child and marry the father. Which is exactly the point - it's their choice. No one is forcing her to get an abortion; no government authority is telling the family what to do. They decided among themselves how to handle this very private matter.

Pregnant women, beware. If you smoke a cigarette, if you drink anything alcoholic, if you sip caffeine-laced beverages, if you take aspirin, you may be committing a crime. You may go to jail. Sound far-fetched? Well Pamela Rae Stewart, 27, just spent a week in a San Diego jail on charges that she was criminally irresponsible when pregnant, helping to cause her infant son's death. Her son was born brain-dead last Nov. 23 and died Jan. 1 when life-support systems were turned off. The child had traces of amphetamines in his system at birth, which the doctor who delivered the baby routinely reported to county authorities.

In 1991, a Cherry Hill-based group calling itself Assuredly Fine Productions, which specialized in children's theater, moved into the adult realm by presenting the musical Baby at Society Hill Playhouse. Renamed the Living Arts Repertory Theatre, the troupe then returned to South Jersey and began to stage full seasons at the Westmont Theatre in Camden County. To reflect its location, the troupe changed its name a couple of years later to the Westmont Theatre Company. The company has moved again to become the resident theater of the South Jersey Performing Arts Center located in the Tweeter Center on the Camden waterfront.

In TV land, producers often "kill off" a character when an actor departs the show. But killing off a character because the actress becomes pregnant is an entirely different matter. That's exactly what's happening now, claims actress Kari Wuhrer, who started on General Hospital last January but was let go in August after informing the producers she was with child. Wuhrer, the New York Times reports, filed a lawsuit Thursday against ABC Productions and American Broadcasting Cos., charging that the soap opera's producers killed off her character, Reese Marshall, after Wuhrer notified the show she was pregnant.

The story line of Tri-Star Pictures' "For Keeps," starring Molly Ringwald and Randall Batinkoff, might play in a small town like Kenosha, Wis. But as far as big-city reality, it's a bust. Kenosha is where we meet Darcy Elliot and Stan Bobrucz, two crazy-in-love 17-year-olds on their way to college and bright futures as prize-winning journalist and architect, respectively. These kids are so wholesome they squeak. They are so virtuous they've waited 2 1/2 years to Do It. They are so responsible she's "been on the Pill for forever" (only to regulate her menstrual cycle, not to have sex, at least not initially)

A Delaware County woman became pregnant after being implanted with an embryo that had been frozen at 320 degrees below zero and then thawed, physicians at the Albert Einstein Medical Center's Northern Division said yesterday. The announcement marked the first time that the technique - known as cryopreservation - had been successful in the Philadelphia area. Only three babies have been born in the United States using this method and about 100 have been born worldwide, national fertility experts said yesterday.

Question: I have a problem I am not proud of. My daughter is pregnant, and, so far, everything in her pregnancy is routine. When I was pregnant with our three kids, my husband was typical for our generation in terms of the involvement he showed during my pregnancy and even my kids' infant years. But now that our daughter is pregnant, he has shown more interest in her than pretty much every pregnancy I had combined. He downloaded an app for his phone that gives weekly updates of the baby's size, changed all his photos to the ultrasound photo, and even spent hours researching car seats for our car so we can drive the baby around.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: A friend confided that she is pregnant and feeling decidedly unexcited about it. Her current life checks all of the boxes for "ready for baby" - including a lovely, excited husband. She doesn't seem depressed, just reasonably apprehensive about how much her life is about to change and whether she is ready for a child. What is the best way to be a supportive friend in this situation? I don't have children myself, and all of my previously pregnant friends have been excited about their pregnancies - even as they expressed reasonable reservations about childbirth, never sleeping again, the usual.

It's a pregnancy test that is biodegradable and can be flushed down the toilet. Bethany Edwards, CEO and co-founder of LIA Diagnostics, hopes her credit-card-sized device will become a force in the vast pregnancy home test market and be ready for sale online by the end of 2016. "Pregnancy test kits are one-time use and made of plastic so they aren't environmentally friendly," said Edwards, 30. "There's also no privacy in the current test kits as they can easily be discovered in the trash.

People told them to forget about restaurant dinners and first-run movies. They cautioned that sleep would be a scarce commodity. They advised the couple to expect conflict in the first mind-spinning weeks of parenting. People said a lot of things. Abby and Brent decided to ignore most of them. "The biggest advice we decided not to listen to was people saying we wouldn't be able to do the same things as before," Abby says. That includes academia, activism and adventure racing, the couple's shared passion: an ultra-endurance sport that combines paddling, mountain-biking and trekking - while navigating only with a map and compass - in wilderness settings around the world.

When Mandy Edwards tells people that she has a 17-year-old son and a 5-month-old daughter, they assume the second baby was an accident. But they have it all wrong. It was the first pregnancy, the one that happened when Mandy was just 19 - a college sophomore, part-time model, and aspiring music writer - that was unplanned. It took five drugstore test kits and an ultrasound to convince her that she was actually pregnant. "When I found out I was going to have this baby, that changed things," she says.

Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier kept her pregnancy a secret for months, hiding her growing stomach even from her mother and younger sister, with whom she shared a split-level Pemberton Township home. On Friday evening, Dorvilier delivered the girl - alone, authorities said - in the ground-floor bathroom, where police later found a bloody toilet and rag. She then allegedly walked to a green Land Rover in the driveway, leaving a trail of blood on the concrete, and drove a mile and a half with the baby to a neighborhood along Simontown Road.

Thirty-six years after opening, the Birth Center in Bryn Mawr is booming and just celebrated a milestone - its 10,000th baby. In comparison, Pennsylvania Hospital, which has Philadelphia's largest maternity unit, delivers 10,000 babies every two years . Therein lies one of the biggest ironies of maternity care in the United States. Demand for midwife-led birthing centers - with their nurturing, low-tech, cost-saving approach to pregnancy and childbirth - has been growing like, well, a newborn.

Early in her pregnancy with her first baby, the 31-year-old nurse felt nauseated and began having pain in her lower right abdomen. Her obstetrician explained that during the first trimester, it is quite common to feel sick to your stomach and, in all likelihood, the sharp twinges came from ligaments stretching to accommodate the growing fetus. Weeks passed, and well into her second trimester, the woman still had trouble keeping food down. The pain on her lower right side subsided, but she flinched when anyone touched the upper right side of her belly.

For much of his 20-year career as a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, Anthony J. Sciscione has been criticizing something obstetricians routinely prescribe to try to prevent premature birth: bed rest. Counterintuitive as it may seem, studies consistently show that pregnant women who lay around for hours at a time, day after day, are just as likely to deliver too early as women who carry on with their normal activities. Now, Sciscione and like-minded iconoclasts are hammering the mounting evidence that activity restriction during pregnancy is not just unhelpful, but harmful.

CALM DOWN, folks. Just calm down. Temporary Tattle is about to re-report a royal announcement, and she knows how touchy some readers are about the monarchy. So, it is with the utmost respect to the crown (God Save the Queen!) that I type news you knew already: Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (please note the perfect usage of title) have announced they're expecting a second child. The Duchess, whose first name I dare not shorten, lest I offend, is believed to be fewer than three months along.
