Hi everyone - I am new to this group. I just found out I was pregnant last week. My OB/Gyn wont see me until I am about 8 weeks along, on Jan 29 so I have no idea when I am due yet. I am estimating around August or September sometime. This is my first pregnancy and my husband and I are so excited!  I had 2 days lasgt week where I could not eat or drink anything, I was so nauseated.  Now I only get sick after I eat.  This may be TMI but I am constipated and am not sure what to take for it. It is making me very uncomfortable.  I look forward to getting to talking to others that are due around the same time! I have no clue what to do!  Happy New Years everyone!

Try ginger root tablets...get them at any health food store....I didn't take them last pregnancy, and was puking water! This time around, although Im' not far, they have done wonders for me!!!
Good luck!

Congrats on your new pregnancy!  I have also had constipation, and I got relief from eating cereal with lots of fiber (ex. Raisin Nut Brand)  and drinking more water!!!! I hope that helps.  I have also heard that "protein" helps fight nauseous... such as nuts, peanut butter, any kinds of meat.  I find eating smaller portions helps me too.

I am not sure what happened - just one of those things I guess. I went to the ER on wednesday with cramps and a little bit of spotting and then had a repeat HCG test done on friday and the numbers only went up by 2.  They told me it was not a viable pregnancy and would most likely miscarry and wouldnt you know it happened today.  We will definately try again, I am just so upset because it took me 8 years to get pregnant.  My heart is broken.
