If even drinking water makes you feel like throwing up, I'd like to help. Squelch your nausea and stay hydrated during pregnancy with these tactics.
Hello, I am 25 weeks pregnant and have terrible headaches usually daily. I had them in my first trimester, but they have gotten much worse. Usually they are there when I wake up in the morning and last all day, but sometimes they don't start until around noon.
I have been on bed rest for the past 6 weeks and will have to be on it until the baby arrives.
I drink plenty of water 8-10 glasses a day. I have always drank a minimum of 8 glasses a day. Could I be needing more than that because I am accustomed to drinking that much?

I am now 6 weeks pregnant and I am constipated. Can I take a mild laxative, if it exists? If I can't take a laxative what should I do? This feeling is very annoying and I hope you can give me some advice. Thank you in advance for taking time out to read my email.

Dear Midwife,I am expecting my seventh baby. My sixth was an emergency c section due to fetal distress (meconium). I want to have a VBAC. I found a midwife that is willing to help me and I asked her if I would be able to labor in the water. She said, "No. After having a C-sec, your scar could open up like a zipper when in the water so that would not be possible.
During pregnancy, the body produces approximately 50% more blood and body fluids to meet the needs of the developing baby. Swelling is a normal part of pregnancy that is caused by this additional blood and fluids.
