Pregnancy Tips from a PregnancyWeekly Guest Writer
Tammy wrote me the other day with some of her pregnancy tips that she wanted to share with you all. Thanks Tammy for writing! And if any of you have some pregnancy tips that worked for you and you would like to share - please shoot me an email at kat AT pregnancyweekly.com - I have had two wonderful pieces of advice since I became pregnant with twins at the age of 47 (these are first babies for both my husband and myself). First: I was having TERRIBLE heartburn and was absolutely miserable. My mother told me to stop eating sweets and it would stop. I thought, "Sure, it will" but I decided to at least try it. I stopped all sweets) including soft drinks and guess what? My heartburn miraculously disappeared (although I have since found out that garlic also causes heartburn for me). Second: I was constipated and I hated the over-the-counter things like Metamucil, Citracel, etc., because they made me feel uncomfortable and bloated. A friend at work recommended drinking apple juice. It works! I hope these tips work for others.
