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.

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
