I've got a cold of some sort too. My pregnancy symptoms seem very mild this time.
Myra- do you attribute easy m/s with the B6 and folic acid? If so, why?
I am mega doses of folic acid, have been forever, am currently doing 5600 mg/daily in an effort to prevent another neural tube defect. I wonder if that's one reason why I'm not too sick. I'm smell-sensitive, but only rarely feel nauseous.
I'm tired, but I can't tell if it's from being pregnant or being up in the night with my 3 year-old who has accidents in the bed when not wearing a diaper, or when she does wear them, she goes through 2 a night because she pees so much. Or maybe it's just because I'm sick.
Myra- how old is your ds? When we nightweaned my dc, I first started nursing them on the couch, and added a few new parts to the bedtime routine in the bed (prayers and song). I explained that we would not be nursing in the bed anymore, that if they awoke in the night, we'd cuddle, they could have water, and we'd go back to sleep. It was a few nights (possibly more- it's been several years now) of them being upset, crying about it for few minutes. I or dh would comfort them and echo their feelings, cuddle and go back to sleep. I only did this when it was clear to me that my kids were in the habit of nursing every couple of hours, but that it was actually interrupting their sleep more than helping them. They were about 1 1/2 at the time.
Who has experienced an increased sex drive? Not me, but when it happens...whoa it's goood. Is that tmi?
