Sophie and the New Baby -- http://www.amazon.com/dp/1408302136/ref=cm_sw_su_dp -- it's mostly about waiting for the baby to be born.
I bought Green frozen yogurt and caramelized nuts so I could feed my sweet tooth (which is hugenormous, as my son would say) while getting some nutrition, but I end up eating the "nurititous" sweets AND the empty-calorie jellybeans etc. And unlike pretty much everything else, there are NO unwanted side effects to eating candy, for me. Other than major weight gain, I spose ... apparently that's not much of a deterrent.   p.s. I second the recommendation of Ben &...
bootsvalentine: Back in the beginning I had a therapist recommend that I talk to my GP about antidepressants and discuss over some of the possible drugs that could be prescribed with me and then the GP prescribed what she thought best. Since then I've just gone to my GP and said I need antid's, here's what I've taken in the past etc. Neither of the two GPs I've seen had a problem with prescribing antid's based on my request alone.
Cecilia's Mama, There's a lot of info about chia seeds being recommended for pregnancy (e.g. http://squatbirthjournal.blogspot.com/2011/05/chia-seeds-in-pregnancy-and-labor.html and http://www.livestrong.com/article/440800-chia-seeds-and-pregnancy/), but there are also warnings about taking them in pregnancy because not enough is known (e.g. http://www.ehow.com/about_6770859_chia-seed-dangers.html#ixzz1HVObawbE and http://chiaseedssideeffects.blogspot.com/ and...
I should add, I definitely don't judge anyone who has decided to be on meds! I just don't think I am at the point where the balance tips that way yet.
I am 21 weeks and feeling very good about being past the halfway point as well! Also loving all the little kicks and flutters I feel now. It's the best part of pregnancy, or rather the only good part IMO, other than of course the baby at the end.   Been having lots of heartburn lately too, ugh. Maybe I should get some chia seeds. But I am seeing some contradictory info around the internets about their safety in pregnancy, so I'm nervous about it. Those who are taking...
I have been in denial about it but am starting to admit that I might be experiencing some depression. But like ithappened, this feels different from what I usually feel. Rage is exactly the word! I am so pissed off all the time these days. It's horrible for my son. I have to keep apologizing to him for losing my temper. And I really don't want to do anything about it. Afraid if I talk to my doctor she'll try to push me back on meds, which I don't want to do because of...
ithappened, what a lot. just think how strong you must be to keep shouldering all of it every day so far! you will get through the next day too. luckily you only have to take one day at a time.   pennywhistle, so glad you are feeling better.   bootsvalentine, it must feel great to have a doc you like. a therapist sounds like a good idea, so you have someone to talk it over with. I've never seen a psychiatrist but it's my understanding that they spend very little...
bootsvalentine, ithappened, dancinganne, pennywhistle, how are you doing? Hope things are looking up.
Just finished Get Me Out by Randi Hutter Epstein, supposedly a history of birth but was actually a little broader -- covered conception and pregnancy stuff too. It was very interesting, a very quick and easy read, but I wished there was more focus on the move from home births and midwives to OBs and hospitals and then (to some extent) back again. That was definitely covered quite extensively, but I don't know ... I wanted more. Especially on more recent developments, how...
