Christine- What a cute baby bump! I can't wait until I get to that stage. I feel like I just look fat now.

 

Angela- So sorry that you had a scare, I spotted brown a few weeks ago and know how scary that can be. But surprisingly it is really common in early pregnancy.

 

As for me, I am MISERABLE. My morning sickness has been horrible. I have all day nausea. It is almost to the point where I can barely function. My doctor gave me 2 different meds but they barely do anything.

 

Baby is doing good though, we had an ultrasound last week and s/he has a strong heartbeat of 152BPM. I also bought a doppler on ebay and found the heartbeat pretty easily.

 

I'll post a belly pic when it looks like something other than fat.

Try anything with ginger like ginger snaps or herbal ginger tea. If you eat a couple of ginger snaps before bed and then as soon as you wake up you should also get some relief. Real lemonade also helps-the smell of lemons is helpful and dehydration increases bouts of nausea.

oh sweetie, I had morning sickness so badly also, I am really sorry. I took Zofran twice a day for about 4 months. I was also in the hospital for dehydration in December, all I can say is stay as hydrated as you possibly can. Try to eat smaller meals and sleep when you need to.

I also had spotting early on, it was so traumatic and emotional, I feel your first trimester pain, it does get better. I swear (everyone told me that but I didn't believe them), I promise you the 2nd trimester is much better, you get to feel the baby move, you get to find out what it is and you finally start to show so people don't think you have some crazy flu for four months.

Thanks you! I haven't tried ginger snaps. I will try them. I hadn't really thought about being dehydrated but that could very well be part of it. It's so hard for me to drink a lot of liquids cause it makes me sick. I've been drinking vitamin water because regular water tastes horrible to me. Weird.

Yeah, my doc first prescribed me Phenergan, but all it did was make me a little less nauseous and very sleepy. So she switched me to Zofran but it doesn't really help with the nausea it just keeps me from throwing up.

It really does make me feel better hearing that it does get better from someone who has gone through it recently. Thank You so much!

I love the bump pics! Awww!! Enjoy it, it really goes by fast when you look back... I am a post baby bump by five months already. I got absolutely huge and ended up having a nine pound healthy baby two days past my due date..

I have included a pic, it was taken two days before I went into labor!

Advice: Take lots of pics, even if you know your huge, its so fun looking back at them!

Overall I am doing great but I have started to become really sensitve to smells - especially in the evenings - everything makes my stomach flip - yuck! I guess I should be happy it isn't as bad as what some of you girls have bben through!

 

Angela - sorry about your bad day - BIG HUG - I am sure everything will be alright!

Awww- I can't wait for more photos. I love the ultrasound Christine! That's amazing. I haven't had any pregnant friends so I haven't seen a 3D one.

 

Angela- I didn't know you were pregnant! Congrats! So exciting. Sorry about the bad day though- sounds frightening!

 

Sarah- you're pregnant too? My goodness- BDW babies everywhere!

 

I hope the morning sickness gets better soon for you all. It sucks to feel sick anytime.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
