Wow, the acid reflux is strong over here...feels constantly lime there is something stuck in my throat that just won't budge, can decide if I want to swallow it down, or let it creep up! ...may have to visit docs on Friday if it's not improving! I think it may have been blackcurrant squash causing it, and have now stopped drinking it. Anyone got any magic methods of easing the discomfort?

Zoboe I have a weird feeling like that in the back of my throat all the time, but for me I donít think itís acid reflux, I think itís a gas bubble trapped in my esophagus and it just sits there and slowy creeps up until I burp! And then thereís another bubble just waiting! I take a gas pill (simethicone) sometimes and it seems to help a bit. Are you sure yours is acid reflux? I always though acid reflux would feel like burning?

Zoboe, I had acid reflux throughout my first pregnancy for which I saw a specialist. I had burning in my throat and chest. It got so bad I woke up hoarse many times from all the acid. I was told to avoid nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, white potatoes, eggplant/aubergine, tomatillo, bell peppers, cayenne etc) and to also stop eating 3-4 hours before bed and prop my head up 6 inches for sleep. Following the advice really helped although I love spicy foods so it really put a damper in my cravings. Old wives tale and actually backed by science is you have bad indigestion during pregnancy and youíre having a baby with a full head of hair. This was very true for me! She came out with a carpet haha

This pregnancy Iím blessed not to have heartburn. However, there were a couple of weeks that I suffered from indigestion where I felt like food wouldnít digest it was just sitting there. I began eating smaller meals that digested faster. I donít eat meat or dairy, but it meant avoiding beans and heavy sauces and Ive have to avoid onions and garlic like the plague. Do you drink kombucha? Or ginger beer? They were both a lifesaver for me.

Wishn, I understand even more now. Thank you. I couldnít terminate either, but I certainly understand wanting to know so that you can plan accordingly. Yes, I opt out of all genetic testing and I usually only allow 1-2 ultrasounds. However, this pregnancy, as you know, has been different and Iíve allowed two thus far. Now we have to decide how many more weíll agree to. Blood work is non-invasive and can provide valuable information, like being certain my thyroid levels are stable, so I consent to that. Iím not against the extra tests, itís just our preference.

Nootles, haha...still pregnant. Happy 11 weeks! How are you feeling now that youíre so close to second trimester?
I understand the wanting to know in advance thing too. I kind of wish I could know in advance if this one will have autism since they seem to inherit it from me. It wouldn't make me feel differently but I would love to know in advance so I could remember and not panic they probably won't hit milestones and stuff when they're 'meant to' ...

Anyway. Curious, if you refuse testing and stuff, how do you do birth, do you go to hospital, home with midwife or go it alone? I saw a documentary where a couple pretty much didn't involve anyone including during birth and it was actually really lovely because it was so natural and calm

Thanks for the advice all just after I wrote this post, I think I found out what was causing it
...blackcurrant squash (which I usually drink 24/7!) No idea why, but when I got home last night I (tmi) I puked up pure blackcurrant, and felt so much better for it. Since then I've not drunk any blackcurrant, so we'll see how today goes I guess!! ...8 weeks today, and got my scan Monday, so excited!!

HappyCupcake, maybe you mentioned it before, if so Iím sorry. However, are you unable to have genetic testing done? Can you request it?

I gave birth at a birthing center last time. The only ones present were the midwife, assistant and dh. We both donít like hospitals in general, so it was naturally the perfect choice. It felt good and we went home a few hours after birth. Midwifes did home visits the following 3 days. I live much further out this time so I have a lot to think about. I donít want to give birth unassisted as I donít have that much knowledge and want someone present experienced. But perhaps a homebirth.. thereís so much to consider. I donít know yet.

Zoboe, Iím so glad you found the cause. Yay for your upcoming scan!!

Iíve been lucky so far with the heartburn,itís just the sickness kicking my butt-seems like whenever I actually eat something that goes down well,itís guaranteed to come back up-grr!

Had my booking in appt with the midwife earlier on in the week-so glad we are moving out of area in a couple months when our house is finished being built, she was the most unenthusiastic midwife with no people skills Iíve ever come across! It took her 20 minutes to even take blood from me (after stabbing both arms) and Iíve been left with such an awful bruised arm! And when I mention how awful morning sickness is? Her response is ďaww blessĒ in such a monotone voice...hardly reassuring-after having such fab care last time,itís disappointing to say the least...still,we should have our scan date through the post shortly,and that is definitely very exciting!

The tiredness is definitely starting to make an appearance now,too...hope everyone else is doing well!

Lpjkp, your story made me laugh, but how awful. Iím glad you wonít have her throughout your pregnancy. I canít even imagine. Bless her other patients. Sorry about your arm.

Iíve come down with cold/flu symptoms. It feels quite odd to be nauseous from something other than hormones. Plenty of rest and warm liquids for me. Hope you all have a relaxing and stress-free weekend!
