I would say "That seems to be happening an awful lot lately-seems like you should go see your doctor before the baby gets here because we both will be getting a lot less sleep then"
He will either "man up" to quote the phrase and get himself to work each day or go to the doctor-maybe there is something medical. Or as I tell my kids when they are tired in the morning-maybe you need to cut down on your activities outside of school/work.View Thread
With my first child-I didn't really have any cravings until one day I HAD TO HAVE a strawberry milkshake. I do not do fruit and ice cream. I do not particularly like strawberries. When I ordered it my mother and husband looked at me in shock. I probably looked like I was in shock. The baby definitely ordered that thing. I drank it and I haven't had a strawberry shake again in the past 16 years. Boy child oddly loved them when younger. Now he has adopted my anti-fruit attitude toward ice cream though.View Thread
I have to say that the best thing for all stuffed up is probably drown yourself in fluids. You might want to see if your doctor allows antihistamines instead. Nasal spray seems like the quickest least systemic way to unstuff your nose but it might not be as safe as other choices.
I know my doctor was all about Benadryl and vapo rub for stuffiness during pregnancies.View Thread
My ex- MIL drank a glass of wine every day during her pregnancies at her doctor's suggestion and gave birth to good sized children with no obvious damage-one is now a Attorney General, the other a noted university professor.
On the other hand, I worked with babies with fetal alcohol syndrome in college and it broke my heart.
I had one glass of champagne during each of my pregnancies-at weddings. (I swear every time I got pregnant someone decided to get married) I really wouldn't ever even dream of more than that.View Thread
