Re: First Time Moms

I've been eating 5 small meals a day and that works for me!

Re: First Time Moms

I've found that Q brand ginger ale is the only one that really works for me. It's kind of speedy but isn't nearly as sweet as the others I've tried (and I've tried a lot!) and it usually will at least make me functional again if not 100% which is more than I can say for the others. The other awesome trick that my mom told me about is eating four or five saltines BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. Something about the blood sugar helps stave off the nausea. Hope that helps!

Ultrasounds

So I read an article that found a link between additional ultrasounds and autism. I had abdominal pain in my fourth week of pregnancy and the ER was nervous it might be ectopic so I had four ultrasounds in one week to confirm it was a normal pregnancy. My question is do you have to get ultrasounds at your prenatal visits? I'd like to just do one more at week 20 to confirm my due date and find out the gender but don't know if that's possible. I haven't scheduled my first prenatal yet (on the to do list, but the clinic closes at four and I never seem to get through before the cutoff time), so these are probably questions to ask then, but it'd be nice to get some guidance before hand.

Here's the article. http://www.thedailybeast.com/witw/articles/2013/04/29/are-ultrasounds-causing-autism-in-unborn-babie...

Re: First Time Moms

I am due february 21st. with my first :smileyhappy: But I do not get another ultrasound until my 21st week which is in October. I want to find out the sex sooner. What is the best week to go into a 3d place to find out? I was thinking week 15 or 16 they would be able to tell.

Re: First Time Moms

I am going at 16 weeks to a ultrasound place where you pay.  But its worth it, if I didn't I would have to wait until 21 weeks as well!  They say at 16 weeks is the best time and the earliest they can tell :smileyhappy: Good luck, and congrats!

Re: First Time Moms

try ginger root from a health food store does wonders for me! :smileyhappy: also tums, peppermints, and instead of eating regular portion meals eat more smaller meals throughout the day!

[ Edited ]

I was a lucky one I guess, I only had to deal with "morning sickness" once a week. for 3 weeks >.< Any way, Can anyone tell me what is up with My belly button sometimes it hurts so bad and the pain feels like its a the whole nerve line running from the belly button down to my parts. Also with the weight loss. I have lost a total of 16 pounds since I found out I was pregnant and it seems to be going down continuously. My doctor hasn't said anything about it, but I truly am worried.
