PSA: Mosquito Bites

According to the book What To Expect When You're Expecting:

"Pregnant women are delicious"...
"Scientists have found that pregnant women attract twice as many mosquitoes as nonpregnant women do, possibly because those pesky bugs are fond of carbon dioxide and pregnant women tend to take more frequent breaths, thereby releasing more of this mosquito-friendly gas. Another reason why mosquitoes make a beeline for expectant mothers: they're heat-seeking, and expectant mothers generally have higher body temperatures..."


Well, it seems I have become a lab rat to test this theory - and it holds up true.
Everytime I'm exposed to the night air, its mosquito bite heaven! Those suckers even got me through my stinkin jeans!!
