Is this true? Hehehe.
Ali - What is your due date? I can remember when you mentioned wanting to get pregnant, now you are :woot: . I am so happy for you and your husband. Names?
EDD is July 20.
No names yet. Of course I have always given thought to names, but I am still so cautious and don't want to jinx myself!
I understand about not wanting to jinx. How have you been feeling?
Congratulations Alicat!!!! Wishing you all the best with your pregnancy!!!!!
Whoops. My EDD is July 21. Just being technical!
I am feeling ok. I have been VERY tired and moody. My poor hubby is getting yelled at quite a lot lately. But he understands.
I have had mild nausea off and on. I have it right now and I pray it won't get worse. Ugh. But I know I could be feeling worse, so I'll take this.
I would keep crackers by my bed and have a few before my feet hit the floor in the morning. I had morning sickness for 5 straight months with my first one. Good luck!
Congratulations! Happy to hear it!!
CONGRATULATIONS!!! How exciting for you!
I agree with aries about the crackers. Saltines saved my life through the nausea. Some pregnant women like to suck on hard candies.
Take good care of yourself!
Congrats! I just knew the Met would help. It's the only thing that worked for me. It worked when everything else failed including Clomid and inj fertility meds.
I stayed on the met for 3 months to prevent miscarriage. I was so scared to come off of it even then, but everything went fine. I also had a Leo baby, born on the 25th of July.
As for the nausea, I had to take Zofran (med they give people on chemo) throughout my entire pregnancy. And even with that, I threw up every day for 9 months. I intend to hold that over my daughter's head for...for forever actually!
Enjoy every second. It's a magical time in your life!
OK, I've not had any pregnancies but I do know from others' experience that this recipe works. Put a piece of lamb or beef shank (about 200G would suffice I guess) in a glass jar, close the lid tightly and put it in a large pot to boil for a about 7-8 hours, then add salt to the content and drink the liquid. It helps the most with the pregnancy nausea. It's also very nutritious. And of course you can eat the meat too if you can stomach it, but if you can't just drink the liquid (you'd be surprised how much liquid is in the jar once it boils for so long). You'd think it's hard work but all it takes really is to put it on the stove to cook/boil as you go after your day.
Joy of expecting
Interesting about the beef shank Swan! I'll need to try that if I reproduce again!
I had horrible nausea with both pregnancies (never got sick though).
Here's what helped me to some degree...
- eating small frequent meals/snacks. It gets worse if you don't, I think it has to do with blood sugar dropping too low.
- cinnamon gum (not sure why)
I've also heard that those "seabands" work. they're like stretch bracelets with little nobs on the inside that target an acupressure point on your wrist. I've heard of these helping others, they just didn't work on me. You can get them at most drug stores
Ginger tea or candied ginger. Supposed to have stomach easing properties.
Lastly - Morning sickness is supposed to be a positive sign that you have a good, strong, healthy pregnancy, so there is a positive side to it!
