So sorry to hear about your mc hollyhobbie .

I've been struggling with spotting too but so far, everything seems to be ok : . Its wreaking havoc on our nerves though. My biggest preg. complaint right now is reflux. Everything I eat seems to sit right at the base of my throat. It's like it's always threatening to come back up. While I can look forward to less actual nausea once I'm out of the first trimester, the reflux and indigestion doesn't go away. I've been drinking lemon balm tea because an herbalist told me it might help with digestion. Does anyone have any other ideas?

robugmum, I have Gastroesophogeal reflux disease and a stomach ulcer and pg makes the reflux a million times worse, so I totally feel for ya. Milk has always helped my reflux, as does staying totally upright after I eat, for at least 45 minutes. I don't take any presc. meds for it while I'm pg, but the milk, position, oh and peppermint tea can help sometimes, too. You might want to check with your Dr or MW about the peppermint, though- some advise to limit it or wait till after the 1st trimester, because it can supposidly cause uterine ctx. I hope you can get some relief soon!

Well, I am 11.5 weeks now, not much longer to go until the 2nd trimester starts.

My appt was good, and I don't have to go back for a whole month! Yay!

He did try to find the heartbeat, but we couldn't hear it. I imagine my fat gets in the way :P

Tomorrow will be 12 weeks !!! Does that mean I'll be entering the 2nd trimester or does it start from week 13? I figured 12 weeks would be the beginning of the second
DH and I went to Gatlinburg for a couple of days with some of his co-workers. I think I scared them because I really haven't been in the socializing mood. I just want to be with DH and that's about it. I typically am a very social person but for the last 8 or 9 weeks I've been more of a hermit type.
It was an okay time. They kept us on our feet ALL day yesterday. From about 10 am til 5pm. Needless to say I was/am exausted.
I have been more emotional than anything lately. I spent yesterday morning crying because I just wanted to be w/ DH alone and not really bothered by what everyone else wanted to do.
We looked at some live bears this morning on our way out. I was so pi**ed that we spent $3 to look at them and supported those people who keep them in those horrible cages. I was so upset by what I saw. 3 black bears in a cage with concrete and a little pool of water. They were all curled up in balls and looked miserable. I wonder if there isn't some way for those bears to be rescued from that horrible place.
I have been very upset about the experience. Even DH was disturbed by it. So, if any of you go to Pigeon Forge Please do not look at the live bears
By giving those people money, they are encouraged to keep those poor animals.

Sorry about the rant off subject. I just needed to express my thoughts.

I am very very tired and I am going to bed. Sorry I am not posting personals. I'll get back to that.

Velvet,

You might want to drink a ton before you take that antibiotic -- I managed to clear my body of all bacteria that are treatable by the more common antibiotics before I learned how to cure my frequent UTIs without them. My solution is to drink a ton of water -- some people swear by cranberry juice, as well, but I find water works just fine. Like 1L/hour -- your infection should be gone in 24 hours.

I'm lurking here, mostly. 8w+ and so relieved to be less sick with #2 than I was with my dd. I'm only throwing up once a day and retching, rather than throwing up all day. I've managed not to miss a day of work through it. Today was hard though -- sicker than normal and lasted until noon. UGH. I'm taking Diclectin which helps a bit, if I can keep it down. Sorry to be so graphic! I know you guys understand!

jj
