Found out a few weeks ago that I'm pregnant again! After 2 YEARS of trying, I'm crossing everything available that this pregnancy will be a "good one". As was the case when I was preggers with my son (who is now 3.5 years old), I'm battling a bit of nausea off an on, but the real problem is indigestion. I've tried a growing number of OTC meds, with shaky success. Zantac, Tums, and currently Maalox, are what I've been recommended by docs. and pharmacists. Maalox works the best of all of 'em, but it's not fool-proof. Any other suggestions? I've been trying to graze, eat smaller meals, etc... too.
The other issues I'm having now, I did NOT have with Ben's pregnancy. Some nights, I get sooo itchy all over, it feels like I've got ants crawling all over me. I get so twitchy and restless that I wake my husband up... and that's not an easy thing to do! I also get a very intense, stabbing pain, that only lasts 10 seconds or so, right at my bellybutton level, when I sneeze, cough or do something else that makes the muscles there contract suddenly. It feels like I pulled a muscle, but I'm pretty sure I didn't.
Any ideas? This is all normal stuff... right?... right?...
