haha... nice to see I am not the only one feeling really cranky these last few days . I understand your frustration and I agree that I could never have an abortion regardless of the situation. (although I agree that it is ok for medical reasons or in the case of an assault)
I use to be a lot more pro choice than I am these days, I think after you have been pregnant and had a child your views tend to change a little.View Thread
I think that the L&D class is the best thing that you can do, the class I took before I had my son the instructor was great and really drove the point home to the men. I can't tell you how many times she pointed out to these men that in the L&D room there sole purpose in life is to support the mother and do anything she needs to be more comfortable because she is having to work harder than he could ever imagine.
Once he is there seeing labour in person his tone WILL change I am sure of it.View Thread
I also quit when I got pregnant, so I know it is not easy. It sounds like you have already done the most important thing and that is making making up your mind to quit. Once you have REALY decided that you need to quit it is easier than you think. The only thing to say is: just do it.... end of story.
The important thing to remember is that the way noicotine addiction works: as the level of nicotine in your system drops your body goes into withdrawl and wants more. So if for the first few days you ignore the cravings you are over the worst of it, where you get into trouble is if you give in and have a smoke, what that does is raises the level of nicotine in your body and will make your cravings stronger as that level drops again.
What I did when I made up my mind is I finished the package of smoke that I currently had... BUT I lit the smoke, had a drag or 2 then threw it away whole! It was a way to trick my brain into thinking that I had full filled the craving without actually having much nicotine.
I have to agree about the creams helping along with staying well hydrated. This is my second pregnancy and I got HUGE with my first, and it happened quickly (I gained around 60 lbs).
I used the Body shop coco butter everyday and I drank as much water as I could and the only place I got streach marks was my thighs where I had not thought to put cream.... none on my belly even though my mom and her sisters are all COVERED with them.View Thread
I asked my OB when it was normal to start feeling braxtons because I am already feeling them, and she said that they are normal ANYTIME in pregnancy, so I would listen to what the tech said, sounds like he was right.View Thread
