My advice is to suck it up! Sorry not much help I know but I have tried everything including medication and nothing seems to work or make a difference. Hopefully by four months it will subside but some people have it the entire pregnancy. I vomited a lot in those first few months. Make sure you keep...

Forgot to say I use fuzzi buns and Mio diapers. I don't think you can get Mio in the US. And I do not use anything aside from white vinegar and regular washing powder to clean them. White vinegar is a great cleaning fluid for all sorts of things.

I never used a glider. I do highly recommend a car seat that also clips onto the stroller - makes life so much easier to transfer the baby without waking them. I also think if you are tall (as I am) a changing table helps your back out!! It can be a long down to the floor or the bed when you are cha...

Sorry to hear you have to go back to work Ronda. Time files! I am really surprised that it is so expensive for FET. Ours really was cheap I guess. We had to pay for meds on top but that was nothing - maybe $100. Because it is so expensive does that mean you will have to wait longer than you had hope...

Eating bananas is also supposed to help prevent colic in the baby. Not sure if it is true but have heard it from loads of people and lots who swear by it. They say to eat one a day from around 6 months on to prevent colic in the baby.

Again my story exactly . At 6 weeks there was a sack and fetal pole measuring about 5 days behind. I went back at 7 weeks and there was a perfect heartbeat. I am excited for you that you saw a sack and fetal pole - it is a great sign. My Dr. was also concerned about seeing the baby in the right plac...

There has been some concerns about the untreated/raw sewage from disposable diapers going into landfill and seeping into the water-table. With cloth the sewage goes down the toilet and is treated.

Imagine if you lived only 10 miles from work and used cloth diapers!

Hi Everyone, How are you all doing? Things seem to have slowed down a bit here - I guess the holiday season was keeping everyone busy. Melissa I am really sorry you have to go through all that. It doesn't seem fair - you have been through enough. Ronda I had one FET with only one embryo. I got pregn...

This is exactly what happened to me. I was within normal but at the very low end. Hey someone has to be at the bottom! When I went for my first u/s (at 6 weeks 1 day) there was no heartbeat and it was measuring behind by about 5 days or so but it was developing normally - sack, fetal pole etc. A wee...

My biggest bit of advice would be to use reusable diapers. You need to do a bit of research on it but these days there are lots of great 'systems' you can chose from. Most come without pins and you can get flush-able liners that take care of most of the mess. I swear they are not nearly as messy or ...

I am with you all. I do not do pregnant very well at all! I turn into a vomiting machine, I worry and this time around all I want to do is sleep. I really try hard not to worry and have the mentality 'what will be will be' but it is hard to do and I don't find it easier as the pregnancy goes along -...

I basically had the slowest rising hcg possible (and what appeared to be a full blown period) with this pregnancy and I am 25 weeks today! My hcg only rose 70% every 72 hours for about 2 weeks. And at my first few ultrasounds I was measuring behind by about 5 - 6 days. I was convinced I was going to...

JasJulesBriellesMom - great weight loss! Thats fantastic. I will need a marathon effort to get rid of my wide load once this baby is born. Also, pleased to hear the baby is doing so well. Marina - my recommendation for constipation is flax seed (sometimes called linseed). A couple of tablespoons on ...

Try not to worry as it will come and go. But if you need peace of mind you should go back to the doctor. Better to be reassured than worrying all the time.
