Have you tried liberally seasoning it with fresh rosemary? That's pretty strong and will cover the flavor if it bothers you.

I did that for my DD with some beef liver the other night and did a...

Try to get her up and moving. Lying down usually will make it worse if she's in pain. The more she walks, the sooner she'll have the baby. Gravity will help the baby out, if nothing else.

I'd get the little case or something for them to keep it in when it's not in use. Then if they lose it, remind them that it's not my job to keep track of their things.
