Hi Everybody! I never noticed these groups before. Anyways I thought I would introduce myself. Im Lisa, and this is my first baby after having a miscarriage last December. My baby boy is due the 26th of March.
I have my GD test tommorow. I cant eat a single thing until afterwards, and my appt is at 10am!!! I might die before then. Im usually starving before I even wake up in the mornings at 6am. But I do get a sonogram, so Im super excited about that. Ive got my fingers crossed baby girl has finally turned head down (shes been breech at every appt...)
I had my two appointments today. Nurse this morning for my whooping cough jab. Was in and out of there in about a minute. The jab itself up was fine but my arm is sore now.
This afternoon I had my midwife appointment. Had the usual checks and had blood taken for the next lot of tests. There was a student in the room who checked my blood pressure. She also had a feel to find out the position of the baby. Turns out baby is breech at the moment. Heartbeat all good and I'm measuring on track. Next appointment in 3 weeks on 2nd Jan.
I saw this in my inbox today so I thought I'd share I haven't tried any of these but I have been eating a LOT of papaya since we got back from our babymoon so maybe that is why I haven't had the heartburn yet??
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q: Is there anything I can do to help relieve my terrible heartburn?
A: Heartburn is common during pregnancy because the hormones released in a woman’s body soften the valve between the stomach and esophagus, allowing gastric acids to travel up into the esophagus. This causes an unpleasant burning sensation.
Try these tips to reduce and prevent heartburn:
Eat smaller meals more often (5-6 mini meals throughout the day).
Avoid trigger foods, including highly acidic, spicy, and fatty foods.
Avoid wearing tight clothing after eating, which can worsen symptoms.
Chew fennel or sip fennel tea, which may reduce irritation.
Chew papaya enzymes with each meal or try eating a few pieces of fully ripened raw papaya, which aids digestion. (Speak with your health-care provider before doing so.)
Homeopathic remedies include Arsenicum 6c and Natrum Phosphoricum 6c, taken three times daily.
Slippery elm powder (1 teaspoon) may also help ease burning and irritation. Try adding some to your food or tea.
Always remember to discuss natural, herbal, and homeopathic remedies with your health care provider first.
Hope it helps some of you! AFM, still struggling with sleep so I'm just dead tired. We're hoping to buy our crib this week so lots of research around that. Still, I know! We're SLOOOOOOOW. Good luck on everyone's tests and test results
