Hi, my son was very active also and he came out just fine. Of course I was concerned about this as well because I thought he would be hyperactive. I talked to my doctor and he said I didn't have anything to worry about. Every pregnancy is different thought because now my daughter (20 weeks) isn't quite as active as my son was. I aslo heard an old wives' tale that boys tend to be more active than girls in the womb; maybe there is some merit to that...View Thread
Tomorrow I will be entering my second trimester and I have a little worry about soy products and my pregnancy. I've heard things from family and the internet that if a woman consumes more than two servings a day of soy products, she can ultimately change the sex of the baby to a girl! Also, I've heard that more than 2 servings of soy can trigger an abnormal uterine environment for the fetus. I know too much of anything can have side effects, but what is the real deal with soy and pregnancy? I consume about a cup a day with my cereal by the way.View Thread
Well, I am usually very in tune with my body because I practice yoga and I meditate. I just felt like something was taking over my body. I couldn't concentrate on anything, the sides of my hips hurt when I woke up in the morning, and I felt dizzy a lot. In general I just wasn't myself and I just knew I had to be pregnant. I hope this helps!View Thread
I live in Denver, Colorado and am in my second trimester. Due to the pregnancy and dry weather, my skin gets extremely dry and flaky. I like using natural remedies since I'm pregnant so I did research and came up with this remedy that has done wonders for my face and growing belly: Clover Honey, 2tsp Soy milk or whole milk,-between 1/2C to 1 C Wheat Germ-2/3 C Lemon-about 5 drops I apply it to my face and belly 2 hours before I go to bed every night. Your body heat will naturally make this mixture melt into your pores and keeps moisture locked in. I notice my face stays smooth and moisturized for at least 24 hours. You can adjust this recipe or add things to it as you so desire and keep it in the fridge in an air tight container between 1 to 2 weeks, depending on whether you use soy milk or whole milk. When you apply it to your face and belly, it will leave your skin a little sticky so I just put a very thin layer of lotion on to seal it.View Thread
Spring is here, and I love the great outdoors; this includes barbecuing. I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I can cook up some great barbecue. I've entered my second trimester, and was wondering if the fumes are hazadous to my health and my baby's health. Keep in mind I do cook outside on my balcony which happens to be well ventilated. Is there any advice out there about this concern? I know I can't be the only preggo here that likes to barbecue!View Thread
I know this will sound crazy, but with my first born son I knew I was pregnant the NEXT DAY! No lie! I took an at home pregnancy test 5 days later because it was nagging at me and wouldn't you know, I was right about feeling pregnant. This time, I didn't feel I was pregnant until about a week later. I took the test a couple days after that and now I am entering my second trimester.View Thread
