Good luck with the toast! I have already downed one can of ginger ale and am about to crack open this 20oz bottle I have. I've only been up an hour and 20mins now. Lol!

I'm so ready to tell people! It's so hard keeping this a secret for another 4-6 weeks. I really want to wait until 12 weeks but I'm thinking we may spill the beans at 10. I don't know.
My parents already know as well as my sisters and brother. SO's family are all in the dark.... I'm honestly not sure when we are going to tell them either. Both of us are nervous to tell because of the MC. My family knows because they know we were trying. Good luck on keeping your secret.

I think I'll be ready to tell (family, at least) after my 8 week ultrasound, which should be next week! But I'm still waiting for appointment confirmation.

Even hearing the word "ginger" makes me want to puke. I have been loving the sparkling water. Not the kind with Splenda in it, just plain sparkling water with a citrus taste or whatever!

My weekend went downhill starting Friday night. I suffer from horrible allegery problems and can't live without my meds. Well, I called the nurse and she informed me that I can't take any allergy meds until I'm out of my first trimester. I'm like, lady you have got to be kidding me. So basically I will be suffering for about 4 more weeks. Sigh. Anyway, my DH says it's "for a greater good" and that i have "to take one for the team" but sheesh. I feel horrible.  I missed alot of stuff this weekend because I could not leave the house. 

Anyway, that's the latest with me. Time for bed!
I'm with you girl! I went to the pharmacist yesterday and they to me no allergy meds! I'm dying. It's do bad my whole body hurts, my head and I just have that achey icky feeling. Hard on top of being pregnant. You actually have 6 more weeks until your out of your first trimester if your 6 weeks today.... I'm 6 weeks 5 days, so we will be suffering together. I'm also breastfeeding so it makes my selections even more limited.

I tell earlier and earlier with each pregnancy. By 10 weeks, I tend to look about 4 months pregnant (and especially this time, my lingering fluff from my almost 16-month-old isn't helping me any, lol), so there's definitely no hiding it by then.

I tried I drink sprite and Sierra most but couldn't stand it! It was WAY too lemon-lime for me. Haha. Ginger Ale and coconut water helps me a lot!

Chiming in real quick, try to find local raw honey for allergies. It's the only thing I can take for mine, and it works wonders.

For someone who lives in the city, where would you recommend finding that?  We do have a Trader Joes and a Whole Foods nearby.  So if one of them carries it, I could definitely try that.

Google Apiary & your city, or county. You can call the local apiaries and let then know what you're looking for. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's usually carry raw honey, but it won't do you much good unless it's local.

Has to be local so that the flowers are local where the bees go. It helps calm allergies that are actually triggered from local allergens.

Looks like I'll have to stick to the head over steaming water method for my allergies.  I googled it but there's no one near by.  The information that came up about the ONE apiary in my city was that he has retired due to lack of demand.  Ugh.  Oh well.

 

I finally found chewy heartburn relief!  It's the alkaseltzer chewies, but close enough.  My OB said those are just as good as the tums.  They had the gummy tums as well, but only in cherry and winter mint.  Two flavors I hate regardless of pregnancy.  Instant heartburn relief!!

Some of the time.  When holding my head over the pot doesn't work, I turn my bathroom into a sauna.  That helps a bit more.

I found a place you can order online from. As long as they are within I think 75-100 mile radius of you, it should help. They are located in Essex.

Message me the info and I'll have hubby give it a shot.  Or see if my dad can do it.  He is closer to Essex.  Thank you.  :)

I had this with my jaw a few months ago and I guess it can be a sinus infection! Mine went away in my own. As long as you don't have a fever I would wait it out. Mine took about a week to go away and I didn't have any other symptoms, it was weird. Turns out by talking to other people it's quite common.

Today has sort of been crappy for me.  Woke up feeling nauseous but can't puke.  Ex****ted and emotional.  And I need to wait close to 6 more hours for DH to bring me ginger ale, if he remembers.  I'm honestly hoping we get the huge rain storm they keep talking about so he can actually be home.  We had Friday together, but it didn't do much for me.  Especially when he keeps saying yes to more work and not just taking some time at home.  It's making me grouchy and more emotional.

I called my OB's office to verify my appointment tomorrow.  The receptionist (who I didn't recognize) was like, "After your first US, we don't call you as a reminder after that.  You have to remember the appointments."  I kind of just want to go in there and yell at her tomorrow.  I was trying to verify because sometimes I write things in the wrong time or date slot of my planner.  But she was mean and laughed.  Maybe I'm just having that bad of a day and should stay in bed.  :/  It's fine that they don't call after the first US, but it would be nice if the woman wasn't so mean about it.  Thank goodness my OB isn't like that.
