I know what you mean about being sick of taking stuff, I had to work on my iron, which meant I was taking first yellow dock- dandelion-molassasses syrup, which was gross, plus my liquid prenatal by buried treasure which is in pineapple juice, but I was getting sick of tablespoons of weird tasting stuff. I had to switch from the yellow dock cause I couldn't stomach it, but am now on Floradix, which I like OK, and chlorophyll which is nasty, plus my cooling chinesse herb tea twice a day which is very bitter, and so am skipping the liquid prenatal cause I just can't go there for now. I also had to quit my preterm tinctures, partly from mental exhaustion of worrying every time I felt something, partly cause they just taste so gross, and I am feeling more confident I can keep the baby in now I am taking it easier. I only take them whe nI feel I over did it, or am crampy. The welcome womb has false unicorn in it, plus anti-spasmotics wild yam and black haw
. I know it is a bummer to be so high maintence in pregnancy!
I am lucky my accupuncturist is 5 minutes away, it is relaxing to go there. And I get massages right afterwards from a friend with an ayurvedic clinic who offered to massage me for free every week! I love my Thursdays- accupuncture, massage, followed by dinner at the ayurvedic clinic's restraunt with awesome organic homemade soups and food.
Good luck, keep up the mediatative state your baby has brought you into! A midwfe friend who heard what i was going through said, oh, that baby is claiming heidi for it's own...I am learning who is top priority now....
