Regarding the flaxseed thing during pregnancy - wow. The spread I used for my bread here in the UK (called "Pure") contains flaxseed oil! It is meant to be good for you because it is high in Omegas 3 and 6.
I hope they put a warning on it in future. It is pretty popular and I bet a lot of pregnant ladies use it daily (I did through at least two of my pregnancies - don't know if it was around back during my first).
