Hi! I just found out this morning that I am pg w/ #4 and due New Year's Day! I have a 7 yo DS, 4 yo DD, 8.5 mo DD. Here are my questions:

I started taking liquid chlorophyll about a month ago (I didn't know I was pg) so that when/if I did become pg, my MS might be lessened. Well, it appears to have worked. (of course, the lack of MS also makes me fear miscarriage, but I'm not going to go there right now) So, have any of you done this and had these types of results--guess I didn't really think it would work!

I also have a friend who swears that nursing while she was pg kept her from being so sick. Anyone ever hear of this?

How far along are you? I had no ms until about 6.5 or 7 weeks. Then it really kicked in. And I have heard that nursing through pregnancy does ease ms, as it helps regulate the surges we get in hormones before the placenta is formed. That's why I'm amazed when I hear from time to time that a doctor has recommended against nursing through pregnancy.

Really? Oh I hope that is true. I had terrible m/s last time for about 3 weeks, and moderately bad m/s for another 3. I'm nursing through this one, and I've noticed a bit of nausea or gaggy feeling the last few days but nothing that really bothered me or I couldn't distract myself through. My 18 month old still nurses too many times to count a day and at least 2ce overnight.

I'm 8.5 wks along. With the girls I started getting sick around 7 wks. With my oldest (a boy) I was naseous, but didn't get sick until 9.5 wks. With the girls, I threw up all day long for weeks and weeks. With my son it wasn't nearly as bad, but still lasted until 18 wks.

It was the nasea that made me take a pg test this time. I'd been feeling naseous off and on for weeks and thought maybe I was getting an ulcer. I wanted to rule pg out b/f heading to a dr. (I'm notorious for trying to "rule out pregnancy" only to find out I am pregnant )
