Weekly Thread: Sept. 24th - Sept. 30th - Page 3

post #41 of 48
I also take Rainbow Light, but I take the "complete system" which is 6 pills a day. It can be a drag taking so many pills, but I think I feel better when the nutrients are spread out throughout the day. I buy mine from vitacost.com - 360 tabs (2 months worth) for about $29.

I take the Rainbow Lights, too, 6 a day. I chose them because they are packed with vitamins and herbs and supplements to help fight nausea, which is a big one for me. Keeping nourished in my fourth pregnancy is important, even if I have to take all those green pills!

I'm also taking an Omega 3 and 6 pill, as it helps to maintain hormone balance.

sandra - yeah, it was 6:30. but i did wake up around 4 and couldn't fall back to sleep esp. since DP's alarm goes off at 5:30, 5:40, 5:50 until i'm like "get your butt outta bed or call in sick already". then my son and his sleepover buddy were up by six anyway and then we went apple picking so it's been a long day. i know i'll good tonight.

rosie - i take the rainbow lights one-a-day too and it says vegan guard on the front so i know there's no gelatin. they are pricey though, but what can ya do?

I wondered that for weeks when I first came to MDC. It stands for Nursing At Keyboard.

I know that I am willing to listen to my dh's concerns about a homebirth vs hospital birth for a few reasons. Primarily, he feels very strongly about it, more strongly than I do. It is his birthing experience too (even if I am the one doing all the work) and I don't want him to be scared out of his mind and on edge the whole time. Whatever the setting is, I want us both to be comfortable. I would probably be more comfortable at home, but not if he is nervous, kwim? We are partners, and we make compromises as part of our marriage. I'm sure if I cared more than he did or if he didnt' have feelings of abject terror at the thought of a homebirth he would agree to one. That is why I would like to try and get him to change his mind but if he doesn't that is fine by me too. It probably doesn't help that the only 2 people we know who have planned a homebirth have either ended up in the hospital for a C and I had a complicated birth with our first.

As for the weight issue, I am trying to be good, I really am. But I am so hungry all the time. I only gained a little with my dd, I had ms until midway through the final trimester. I have minor ms now and eating makes it feel better.

Eat, Kristin, eat! As long as you are eating healthy foods (veggies, fruits, whole grains, proteins), then don't worry about eating too much. Our calorie needs almost double when we are pregnant. The baby takes so much from us that we need to be really well nourished so that our blood can build well and provide for both of us! Yes, pass up the donuts but eat as many nuts and apples and smoothies as you want!

Oh that is what I mean. I am trying to avoid the donuts and eat good food. It just seems all I want is crap... So being hungry all the time isn't a bad thing, it is the being hungry for chocolate and french fries that I am worried about. Not good for me or baby (or my nursling).
