I used it with my second. I'm not convinced of the benefits, since the research out there shows a pretty minimal benefit overall, but I like drinking it and I'll do it again. Anecdotally, my second...

I haven't had it checked. Or at least not recently. My midwives are pretty hands off. We're pretty sure the loss was just a chromosomal abnormality. I've had two totally normal pregnancies, so...

Lots and lots of fans. You can combine fans with spray bottles to cool you down pretty dramatically. Ice packs on the back of your neck will also dramatically drop body heat. Drink ice water too.
