Yea, give the tea a try. It seems to agree with pregnant me too. Hope it helps!

Sigh:) Like I don't feel guilty enough over how slack I've been the past few weeks, I need someone else telling me. I just did not expect how much this pregnancy would kick my butt:) Last time was a breeze in comparison and even thought I know that each pregnancy can be different, you never know how different until it happens. Other than the tiredness I've had morning sickness and didn't even have nausea last time. And while last time I would cry at the drop of a hat, this time my temper is through the roof. Does any have this? I call it pregnancy rage:) I get super grumpy and my poor dh and ds are dealing with it mainly.
Wow, yea I'd pop your MIL in the gut. But I *might* have a bit of that pregnancy rage you speak of.

Heh, I post tidbits on twitter with the hashtag #mymotherisbatshitinsane whenever we talk. I hear people rather enjoy them and I could make some good money taping and posting our conversations online. She is the queen of odd comments. Sometimes they're funny, most of the time they suck, but at least they make for good stories with the in-laws.

A friend has a theory that if you're more emotional, you're having a boy, but if you're more aggressive, you're having a girl. So maybe this one is a girl for you!
Well we're just a bunch of weirdos over here then, huh? The only pregnant women who are tired. Science should study us! Not gonna lie, I did have a robot floor cleaner on the registry but DH and I are banking amazon gift certificates I earn through websites and apps to buy it ourselves so I just took it off today. We're only $30 away and I can't wait!
If that old wives tale is true I must be having a girl! I've been a bit, um, stabby lately. It works though when dealing with my mother although soon I will lose my filter altogether and when she says things like 'I don't know why you're even bothering coming for Thanksgiving' instead of sitting there quietly pointing out the awkwardness of her comment I'll actually speak up and say, 'I don't know why we are either so now we're not' and hang up. It's good though, growing up in a disordered home I became far too much of a people pleaser so this baby is helping me be more assertive. Hopefully when it's all over I'll find a balance between assertive and bitchy as I fear I'm a bit on the later end of the spectrum at the moment.
