Oh my.... my nipples have gotten so, so much darker. They had already gotten quite dark, and I didn't think they could get any darker...but I was proven wrong. Plus some big blue veins in my boobs have become extremely noticeable.
3rd trimester TMI thread! - Page 3
Am I the only one who actually LIKES the darker pregnancy nipples? I always hope they'll stay that way, but nope. They go back to non-descript and boring. Oh, well.
I've found, in regards to constipation, eating more fruit and a high-fibre cereal in the mornings has helped me, for the most part. Thankfully, I haven't had it too bad. That must suck. I hope you get relief soon!
I just saw this since we've got limited internet at the moment. I don't think they are. They are like really dark brown raised moles, and the ones that rub more on trousers have gotten bigger, turned black and eventually fallen off. They also bled frequently. I can't think of anything else they could be other than warts. It's all a big mystery! But it would be nice to know as OH is feeling a bit deprived right now.
My actual nipples are turning dark and then my areolas are more ombre like, going outwards toward my actual boobs. I wish they would just turn dark!
Magnesium apple juice is suppose to help relieve constipation. Make sure you're getting like 90 oz of water each day too. It's hard though if you are like me and have limited stomach space. Drink too much of anything and I'm not hungry for hours but get wicked heart burn.
As for the drooling, my saliva all ends up in the back of my throat so I wake myself up with this weird gurgle sound. Plus the snoring...good lord. lol
serena - are you taking "natural calm" - the magnesium supplement? it helps a lot with relaxing muscles (mainly used for leg cramps) but it will also help with constipation since one of the ways you identify your correct dose is how soft your stool is. i've been taking it daily for months and haven't had any issues with constipation.
nettle - I've had some concern about warts recently too and the doc said she wouldn't test them or treat them because then there would be an open sore which could invite more trouble...not what i wanted to hear. and your's sound particularly uncomfortable! i am finding that my body is creating a bunch of small skin tags though so that is possible and in my experience, they can be big with brown pigment like raised moles -my husband has some like that. and the fact that they grow with friction actually supports the skin tag possibility. hope you get it figured out soon!
yes, i'm drooling when i sleep :) though i often take it as a good sign that i've slept a bit more deeply since my sleep is so damn disordered.
have any of you found that your throat seems smaller? i regularly get things stuck and mildly choke often, which is really annoying because it results in coughing fits that can cause that fun leakage...what's up with that??
alright, i've officially joined the vagina funk club. no matter how often i shower and rinse off real well down there, it smells like i've been walking around in tight black jeans in a heat wave all day.
papaya also works wonders for constipation. i had to stop eating it for breakfast in the morning at the office because if i had a meeting, I'd have to get up to go to the bathroom without fail 20 minutes later. also, just drinking a mug of hot water with lemon or lime juice on an empty stomach first thing in the morning usually gets my bowels a-movin'. that could be a good solution if you aren't too hungry.
Me, too! Is that what geriatric vagina smells like? LOL I hate it. Really, really hate it.
I'm back to poo-free toilet paper when I wipe. Hallelujah!
