I think that you have to avoid all herbal teas when you are preggers. Since the are not regulated as to what is in them. Off to look it up :)

You ladies are too cute!! Thanks for all the suggestions!! I've actually been drinking the Yogi Tea (and also the "Mother's to be" version that helps with morning sickness). Both didn't work sad.gif I've been eating lots of prunes, plenty of fiber, etc. The doc just said since it's a combination of the pregnancy and meds that are causing the constipation, that the only thing that will really help me at this point is to stop taking the meds. So, for now I'll just take the meds when I'm super nauseous (and be constipated) and try taking a few med-free days and try to regulate my system again. I've also been taking stool softners (safe during pregnancy) and it helps a bit.

 

It's funny that not being "regular" can be such a big deal- never realized how nasty you feel when you can't poop!!!! Now, I will be much more sympathetic when I see Activia commercials :)

Well I hope your body gets bad on track cause that just stinks. This might be gross or TMI but can you get an enima? (sp). I would think that would work for the time being. I would hate the feeling of being constipated!

Hey ladies!! I have been MIA for a while now and wanted to check back in now that things have calmed down!! To catch you up, in the past 3 weeks I have: been to Italy, started a new job, been to New Orleans, and started my 2nd Trimester! Who says pregnancy slows things down?! But really, it's been crazy, and luckily (knock on wood) I never even thought about not feeling well or getting sick this whole time. Apparently not getting sick runs in our family (I'm a lucky, lucky girl).

 

We are right at 16 weeks and have our anatomy U/S in a few more weeks. We did the Intelli-Gender Urine test last week just for fun ($32!!) - I'm not good at reading stuff like that, and I thought it could have matched the colors for a boy (green) or a girl (orange)... my DH said it looked like girl to him. I had him do a quick U/S yesterday (he's an ER doc) just to make sure our little Nugget is still there - and he said he saw nothing between any legs... so it's looking like a girl... but I'm not buying pink until I get the okay from our OB/GYN!! I swear I would buy an U/S machine if I could!

 

On another TMI topic - Mrs. Martin I'm so sorry you're having issues!! I did while we were in Italy, and didn't go to the bathroom for 5 days (when I travel I am really irregular, but that was a little much)!!! Finally, my DH convinced me that an enema was the only way to go... I thought it would be awful, but I honestly felt SO much better when it was all over. My OB said for me to try Miralax if it becomes a chronic issue, but the enema is fine too.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
