Pregnancy, here we go again.
Here's the glorious kit so far:
1. Sea-band wrist bands - supposed to relieve nausea without any medication, just pressure on wrists!
2. Ginger gum - for first trimester nausea (which really lasted much longer for me with baby #1)
3.Ginger Root tablets - also for nausea
4. Ginger candies - again for nausea
5. Ellasti Belli Organic Stretch Mark Miracle Caviar - hopefully to prevent any stretch marks and keep my belly skin nice and soft.
What do you think? Am I fully armed for the first 20 months? Do I need anything else?
Despite all my worries about the dreaded morning sickness, I'm super excited about feeling a baby move inside me again. I am looking forward to a pregnant belly again. And, I know I'm going to get some really cool pictures of my sweet girl snuggling up to my belly because she's already saying (at only 2 and 1/2) that's she's ready for a brother or sister!
UPDATE: I am 19 weeks pregnant now and none of this stuff worked too well. I heard ginger helps other women and I've heard good things about sea-band too - but other women are not me! My problem though, I think, is that I was SO SICK that I vomited daily and lost 7 pounds in my first trimester. I don't think there was any help for me, natural or pharmaceutical. Once I was out of my first trimester, I took the medicine Zofran for nausea. It helped some with nausea but gave me a terrible headache. Also, I felt terrible about taking a drug that could be bad for my baby (although my midwife assured me it is safe.)
