The choice is yours. With my first pregnancy, I took it 3 times. With my second one, I took it twice and that was just because there were two in a box, and I still have a full box in my bathroom cupboard. View Thread
I agree. I spotted more with my first pregnancy than I have with this one. Try eating some crackers and other bland foods; I've never had morning sickness, so I can't tell you much besides that. Also, take water with you EVERYWHERE you go, and try carrying some kind of snack with you at all times.View Thread
Do you get heartburn with this too? If so, try drinking some milk. I took tums once for my heartburn with my first pregnancy, but I found milk to be a much better option. Sorry if this wasn't helpful.View Thread
I have about 7 weeks along (I think). I have my first OB appointment next week.
I keep getting stomach aches all the time. I get them when I'm hungry, of course; I had that issue with my first pregnancy, but most days at work/home I have a stomach ache on and off all day long. I don't remember having stomach aches like this when I was pregnant with my son. Whether I'm at work or at home, it is hard for me to concentrate or to even get anything done.
I have never had morning sickness, and I usually don't have nausea.View Thread
I spotted a tiny tiny bit, so far, with this pregnancy (my 2nd), but with my first I spotted on a regular basis for a while. It was never very much at time, but it was kind of a brown color. But if you are worried, talk to your doctor about it, if you haven't already.View Thread
I should add that there is a lot of stress right now because this was an unplanned baby. We are VERY excited though, but my dad has brought down my spirits some because he when I told him yesterday about the baby he was upset about it. However, I was feeling very crabby before I ever even told him about the baby. I am trying to stay calm and not stress out too much because the last thing I want is to have a miscarriage.View Thread
I am about 4 weeks along. This is my second pregnancy. I have absolutely no energy, and I am always in a bad mood. I struggle to stay awake at work. Usually, I am a very happy, bubbly person, but right now I am just pissed off all the time, to put in bluntly. I am a secretary for a religious organization, and I am finding it very difficult to even pretend to be my regular, happy-go-lucky self. Since I just found out myself that I'm pregnant and not far along, I haven't told my co-workers that I'm pregnant yet. I was hoping to wait, but maybe I should tell them so they kind of understand why I'm so unintentionally crabby. I recall being tired with my first pregnancy, not this much though (probably has something to due with the fact that I chase a 16-month old around all day at home and at work-he comes to work with me). I don't know what to do.View Thread
I'm glad I'm not the only one. So far what I have read on here about the flu shot isn't convincing enough for me to get one, yet. 1) Statistics can be swayed any way a person wants. 2) The statistics I have found aren't good enough (I guess you could say) for me to be convinced.View Thread
Thank you for your responses so far. I would like a doctor's explanaition though, on here. To my understanding the flu shot only covers the very serious flu that lands people in the hospital, which I have never had before, and what people typically call the flu isn't the true flu at all. <--- This is my biggest thing.
I only ever take Tylenol or Sudafed anyways, and both of these are safe to take during pregnancy.
I'm due Christmas Day. My neice was born in Nov. 2009 and the other in Dec. 2008. They never got any serious illness. My mom, sisters, nephew, and I were all born during flu season as well and nothing happened to us.
Like I said, I'd really like a doctor on here to tell me more about it.View Thread
