like manna from heaven

ok so i found a sort of cure for "all-day-sickness" whilst being prego. yes, get excited! it's called PROBIOTICS. I went from being curled up in the fetal position to walking around and functioning...i am still sick all the time, but i don't want to constantly vomit. everyone, please tell anyone you know who has morning sickness about this, because it is not advertised anywhere! i found a few little spots here and there on the internet talking about it, but nothing big like the ginger craze. anyway, i have never heard any woman say ginger helped their upset stomach. that doesn't mean don't try it--by all means, try anything! i do also have ginger pills but haven't noticed a difference like the probiotics. you can find them at any natural food stores like whole foods or wild oats.

i also had a little bit of a scare yesterday. i was spotting a little bit--which is scary because that didn't happen with my first baby. so i called the dr. and had to go in for a sonogram--and everything was fine. the baby had a strong heart beat and everything looked normal. but what an emotional roller coaster! I also found out that i am 7 weeks and 2 days pregnant...i thought i was 8 weeks, so close enough for a girl who doesn't keep track of her periods. TMI? i would post the sonagram, but i think it's a really unflattering picture of my cervix. i'm kidding. i won't post it because it all just looks like a blob.

I'll leave you with a pic of the "monkey playmates"(father and son).

  2. so glad to hear that you've found something that lets you function on a daily basis... it is frustrating to feel like you've had a few days closer to your due date taken away but it's still no indication of when baby will come so don't be discouraged, just get past the sickness phase! hang in there! :)jenn

  3. gawl jami, i'm glad everything turned out okay with bebe. scary!
    and i took probiotics when i was prego, and it didn't help a damn thing. (to all of you folks out there who are reading this comment...i don't really say damn).

    maybe i'll try next time. yah, right. let's hope there isn't a next time. at least not in the next 5 years.

    love you.

  5. I am excited to see this! I have seen one other reference to probiotics, and I think it's definitely worth a try! May I ask if you have a dosage that you used, or a specific brand? I'm going to link to this entry from my morning sickness blog. Thx!!!!
