It has been some time since my last blog post. Thank you all who check my page for new material. I really appreciate your support!
So a few things have happened since my last post, I am officially in the last week of the second trimester. Eek! So exciting! I get to meet my little munchkin in less than 13 weeks! During my second trimester up until now, my pregnancy symptoms have all been very nonexistent. No morning sickness, no headaches, no cravings, if I wasn’t blowing up like a balloon, I would seriously question if there was a baby growing in my belly at all!
Well, I can officially kick those beautiful ‘non-symptoms’ goodbye because heartburn has emerged! Hello heartburn! Omg, I completely forgot about the heartburn! And anyone who knows me at all, knows I LOVE spicy food! I mean, if pouring hot sauce in my cereal wasn’t a little bit gross, I’d probably be eating hot sauce with cereal instead of milk! That’s how much I love spicy food! So how do I deal? I don’t! I’m so stubborn that I’d rather suffer through the heartburn than to eat spice less food. Or so I thought! I have been able to handle it during the last couple of weeks, but holy moly, it has been bad for the last few days! For goodness sake, all I had was a little ketchup!
So I’ve done some research and have come up with a few remedies. One of the most common remedies is to avoid spicy food altogether, but I’m probably not going to do that. So I will have to resort to taking over the counter heartburn medication (after consulting with my doctor of course) and cross my fingers hoping that it works. Until then, I will have to consult with an old wives tale and drink milk to relieve some of the pain. While I’ve never actually tried it, I have high hopes that it will work. Otherwise, I’ll have to endure eating spice less food until my next OBGyn appointment. And I really can’t go that long without eating spicy food.
There are other claims suggesting that when a woman suffers from heartburn during pregnancy, it means that the baby will be born with a full head of hair. Well, I’ve had two babies and both were born with a full head of hair and I indeed did suffer from heartburn during both those pregnancies. If my little munchkin now is born with a full head of hair, then I can say with full confidence that 3 out of 3 suggests that claim to be true. I guess we shall find out when Baby Williams No. 3 finally makes his debut!
