Homeopathy is an option that most women don’t know is available to help them cope with some various complaints of pregnancy. It’s an art all it’s own, and I have had good luck with using it on myself for some basic pregnancy complaints- headaches, nausea and even colds. Learning how to use homeopathy so that it works for you can be challenging, but even the most basic level of understanding (plus being of an experimental nature) makes it worth it since it is one of the safest ways to “treat” pregnancy challenges.
32 weeks pregnant. I’ve been this way before (twice before) and I am always amazed how nothing has been the same twice. Sure, my baby is growing and so am I. I now have days where I feel great, followed by a day where I just want to feel tolerable! But, due to something (I don’t know what, my midwifery studying? Or maybe just the wackiness of a third pregnancy?) I have learned so much this time about dealing with the aches and pains of the last few weeks.
So, you don’t have a last period date to go on, or you’re cycles are irregular enough to not know which end is up. How do you know how pregnant you are? Is ultrasound the last resort, the only way? For so many women it is, and many doctors insist on routine ultrasound when there isn’t a period date to go on. But for those opposed to ultrasound (or for those just wanting that first pregnancy challenge) there is another way.
Nutrition is the most important factor in predicting how well a pregnancy will go, and how both you and your baby will fare. This may seem obvious, but I have lived the medical mainstream pregnancy and I can tell you (or maybe you can tell me!) that this is not common knowledge in that world.
Now, in much of the slightly alternative pregnancy/birthing world, that is not the case. In my first pregnancy (which was OB-hospital based) not one person, ever, who was caring for me, asked what I put in my mouth on a daily basis.
