Congrats RNC! That is exactly how I felt once I discovered the baby boards. Although I have kept reading Weddingbee I felt like I didn’t really have a reason to keep reading but I couldn’t stop following the posts and seeing how the wedding of all of those bees went that were the reason I started reading.  Then I got hooked on new bees…It is really nice to know the community extends to all walks of married/engaged life.

@rnc620 Fiance and I are in the same situation! We’ve been engaged since January 2009 and avoided wedding planning since the guest list was ridiculous and impersonal. We found out we were pregnant a few days before our engagaversary and now we’re getting married in March with 34 people.

How far along? 7.5 weeks

Maternity clothes: Nope, too early.

Sleep: I’m exhausted ALL THE TIME but I wake up way earlier than I usually do now.

Best moment this week: Getting our first visit moved up to this Monday!

Movement: No, but looking forward to it!

Food cravings: Popsicles.

Gender: I’m thinking girl based on wives tales, but who knows

Labor signs: None

Belly button in or out? In.

What I miss: I never really liked fish but now I can’t stop thinking about it.

What I am looking forward to: The end of morning sickness!! I am having a horrible time with it. I’m sick and weak all day, it’s work just to get myself something to eat.

Weekly Wisdom: Who am I to give advice, so far I hate being pregnant : (

Milestones: First prenatal visit on Monday!

Does anyone else have severe morning sickness? I feel so horrible I called our nurse and broke down crying because I cannot handle this. It feels like the flu..weak, nauseous, shaky. The nurse recommended I ask the Dr about going on Zofran but it hasn’t been tested on pregnant women and they aren’t sure of any long term effects. Thalidomide comes to mind. Anyone have any effective cures?

I got a prescription for Promethazine (Phergan) in both pill form and a suppository (for when you can’t keep the pills down).  I never had to use it though.  I still have it just in case the third trimester has a surprise waiting for me.

Oops, our due date is September 22, 2010.

DG- Do you know anything about Zofran having any negative effects on breastfeeding babies? I plan to (here’s to hoping all goes well!) and I read somewhere that you shouldn’t take it in that case.

Congrats FF!  My friend used zofran throughout her entire pregnancy and without it she wouldn’t have been able to eat anything. Her nausea was so bad she lost tons of weight and only gained 7 lbs before giving birth to her daughter, who has been breastfed since day one.  She didn’t need it after giving birth and her daughter is now a healthy 11-month old.  I understand your worries though, but i just wanted to second Mrs DG in that it has helped many women!

Congrats, FutureFisher!  I also suffered from miserable morning sickness in the first trimester.  Zofran was the only thing that got me through.  My doctor said it was safe to use in pregnancy, so I felt comfortable taking it.  But in case you want to try some other home remedies first, here’s all the things I tried:

  • Ginger – ginger tea, ginger crackers, ginger ale, etc…  At the very beginning, crystalized ginger candy worked for me, but unfortunately my morning sickness got a lot worse and the candy stopped working.
  • Anything tart – granny smith apples, sour candy, etc…
  • Hard candy – anything you can suck on for a while (like jolly ranchers) to stimulate saliva production.
  • Dairy products – cheese, yogurt, milk, etc… to help neutralize the stomach acid.
  • Plain foods, especially carbs – white rice, crackers, steamed veggies, dry toast, etc…
  • Other – try keeping snacks by your bed to nibble on in the niddle of the night/try to eat something every time you get up in the middle of the night.  Eat some dry toast or crackers before getting out of bed in the morning.  Take extra B6 supplements.

We had our first prenatal visit today and our doctor didn’t even give me the darn rx for it! He gave me a “recipe” for a home remedy that has “worked for years”..25 mg of B6 and 25 mg of like some cough medicine or something, I don’t remember since I threw it away. Any and all cough medicines put me to sleep and I need to be able to function during the day. 

I did get a bottle of B6 and the half pill I took seemed to help but I’ll test it tomorrow. I also bought a tin of the Preggie Pop Drops and they made me even more sick.

I really wanted to try Sea Bands as well! Do they work for you? The seem to have mixed reviews.

My OB is really old school and just plain old. I’m going to have to change, it’s horrible. He sent me home with the paper vest things they give you to TRY to cover yourself with as a joke or something.
