I'm feeling little movements too, every once in a while. So exciting!!!
I've also had good luck with the Nordic Naturals. One thing my MW suggested too, was to keep the fish oil pills in the freezer! She says that if you take them when they are frozen, by the time they thaw they are already past your stomach and in your small intestine, so they won't repeat on you.

But we love it and wouldn't trade it for anything. There is...
I actually have a night when I'm not passed out on the couch and get to post to the weekly thread!!! Yay! Skrimpy: I'm so sorry to hear about your friend! Hugs to all who are still sick. I've been where you are, and I hope it is over SOON! My main problem has been overwhelming fatigue.

Essential Exercises for the Childbearing Year by Elizabeth Noble. I'm currently reading Misconceptions: Truth, Lies and the Unexpected on the Journey to Motherhood by Naomi Wolf.

Hugs to all the ladies who are feeling crappy! Hopefully it is over soon. About strange pg dreams: the other night I dreamt that I was puttering around the house with the new baby in my arms, dressed in the little red jumper I bought a while ago. My dad calls and it occurs to me that I hadn't called him yet to let him know that the baby got here last night. He asks me how the birth went and I realize I don't know, because I SLEPT through it! I had to go find my dh and...
I am so sorry.
