Severe Sickness in Second!

This is my second pregnancy, and I'm 8 weeks along today. It seems like the moment I found out, I started getting sick. I was very ill throughout my last pregnancy, but i just don't remember feeling this down about it. I think it's because I have this sweet little girl who needs my attention and I've got my head in the toilet the second I get home from work. It's not just nausea and vomiting, but extreme dizziness, stomach cramps and diarhhea. My O.B.'s office just keeps givign me meds that my body violently rejects and ultimatly makes...

Hearburn Relief During Pregnancy

Before I found out I was pregnant two weeks ago I was taking the generic form of Prilosec everyday. I have stopped taking that, but my heartburn/acid reflux is so, so bad now. Some nights, like tonight, I could cry it hurts so bad. My OB has told me I can chew some Tums...but I have such bad acid reflux those have never helped me. With my last pregnancy sucking on hard cinnamon candy helped me but this time it just makes it worse. I can't even drink water. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

At Wits End with Diaper Rash

My son has had a bad diaper rash off and on for over a month to the point that his but gets all red and almost raw. At times you would think we were killing him to change his diaper. We are hoping we can get him potty trained but he shows no interest even though we tell him his bottom will stop hurting. He continues to tell us after the fact. He has also been constipated for at least a month and we have been giving him Miralax and trying to get the right dose down. We have not changed his eating habits at all, but noticed this started when...

Pregnancy Heartburn

I'm in my third trimester and having way more heartburn than I did with my last pregnancy. I get super-thirsty during the day and it seems like water not only doesn't quench my thirst, but it adds to the heartburn. Sweet tea does the trick and doesn't give me heartburn, but I know I don't need all that sugar, etc... (Last pregnancy only lemonade would quench my extreme thirst, but I wouldn't dare try that with the amount of heartburn I'm experiencing now!) So am I crazy? Has anyone experienced this? Water can't really be causing my...

Lump Sensation in Throat During Pregnancy

This is my fifth pregnancy and I have this lump feeling in the base of my throat and I can feel part of the sensation spreading to my upper chest. If I gently press on the base of my neck in the triangle space where the neck and chest meet at the front it seems to go away until I release pressure. Sometimes it almost feels as if there is a flutter or contraction in my chest as well but my pulse appears steady. Is this something anyone else has experienced? It isn't painful at all just feels uncomfortable and tight.
