- Q: hey,well i’ve asked questions about thinking i’m pregnant before and such, but no luck yet. me and my fiancee are actually ttc as of afew mo ago.we just recently figured out that i am on a 30day cycle. my preiod lasts 5days and my luetal is 14 or 16 i believe.anyways,ovulation calendar on babyhopes.com said that my fertile days were sep 24(had sex) 25(didn’t)26th(did)27th said i was VERY fertile(we did) and 28th i ovulated(we did.) but we did many times the mo. prior before we knew when my days were.yesturday i began getting a sore throat and a runny nose, went to the dr and they said i had an upper respiratory infection, tho i feel like i have the flu.my back was extremely achy and my stomach muscles are very sore.today i got up and had my dr test me for the flu and it came up neg. today my sore throat is gone and my nose is still a little runny. tho my body still feels achy. i can’t sleep well and i can’t stay comfy. i get nauseous periodically throughout the day mostly in the am when i FIRST wake up.the website said i may be able to test on the 8th of oct. and my period should begin (or hopefully not) on the 12th.anyways my ? is,i was on here and a girl had asked a similar question about having a sore throat and URI and a week later she got a BFP.so i’m wondering if that may be why i’m sick..maybe i’m going to get a bfp on the 8th?just hoping for suggestions.pls tell me what you think.my period is due oct 12, and the website said the 8th a test may work, so that’s what i’ll try. ty!!
- A: me and you have the same syptoms which is weird because i think i read the same post you did about the girl getting a BFP after she was sick! I tested in late september (i realize now it was to early) and of course it was negative, today was really bad for me though and my nausea was out of this world i could of died! Im due for my AF on the 5th so im going to test tomarrow and then on the 5th if AF doesnt show! I think you should do the same, test maybe on the 5th or 6th and if thats a negative or even a positive, test again on the 8th if AF doesnt show up! If your period still doesnt show, and you have pregnancy symtoms, i would get a blood test from your doctor! Good luck, hopefully its both our months!!
- Have you heard of “Birth dance”? do you think it’s an empowering image for pregnant women?
- Q: “Belly Dancing as Birth dance:A Labor of Love by DelilahThe movements of bellydance can aid throughout a womens’ pregnancy and in the actual birthing process. The movements used were basic and carefully initiated, combining relaxation and breathing techniques, yoga, meditation and the basic hip circle, figure eight, camel walk, bellyroll, and diaphragm flutter.What I feel I could add to the unfolding picture of this subject is in the realm of the psychological benefits that I discovered during the Dance to the Great Mother Project. Professionally performing while pregnant was the most transforming experience of my life. It opened me to realizing the range of hurtful and unfair psychological conditioning we women undergo.I performed Dance to the Great Mother during my second pregnancy. During my first I danced in clubs until 3 months, retired for a while, taught a little and basically hid out and waited. I returned to dancing 6 months after Laura Rose was born. I put dancing on hold psychologically during that time.One day during the 4th month of my second pregnancy I got a phone call to do a private party for an organization. Before hearing very much more I told the women I was on sabbatical due to my pregnancy; she got very excited and requested that I hear her out. I did, and in January 1980 I was commissioned by her regional group of family planners to perform a Birthdance. I went on to perform the dance work at various workshops across the states, and then as part of a larger concert piece called “Phases of the Moon, Faces of the Mother” with Laurel Gray, Kathy Balducci and Tahia Alibec.The experience was profound for me and for many women in the audience. After the performances they would seek me out with tears in their eyes and comments such as, “If I had only seen this dance before or during my pregnancy I would have enjoyed being pregnant instead I felt fat, ugly, I wanted to lock myself away in a closet I want my daughters to see something like this so that they will enjoy that special time in a womens’ life…”I knew what they meant. I myself had hid a way to a certain extent during my first pregnancy. This marked contrast in my activities taught me something important. I was a darn good dancer, expectant or not why should I stop if there wasn’t a health hazard? Both my pregnancies were wonderful, but there was a psychological advantage with the second one. My entire pregnancy with my second daughter Victoria, was spent masquerading around the country as Isis the Great Mother, doing what I was meant to do my entire life, celebrate life and dance! I felt fantastic! I felt like a Goddess!The deep question that arose for me was why had I not felt free to dance in a professional capacity during my first pregnancy? Not that I wanted to be in a night club while I was pregnant, but there are other venues. What was this invisible social pressure upon us as women to hide away during the most creative and glorious position of our lives? What damage is being done to a society which hasn’t any images of pregnant women doing anything powerful, creative, or physical? Couldn’t our world benefit from such healthy images of beauty and strength of Motherhood?10 research discoveries according to Suzanne McNeil:1.It’s easier for women to learn bellyroll movements when they are pregnant. This was amazing! 2.The undulation or camel walk felt uncomfortable during labor for all the subjects. The motion made it feel like there was pressure downward on the cervix. After discovering this we did not use it during labor. It did not effect anyone in class except occasionally someone in their 8th or 9th month. 3.The movements most useful during labour were in relation to the hips and lower back, i.e., the figure 8, the hip circle and the pelvic thrust (not from bellydance) 4.All the students wanted to learn these movements in their dance form because it’s more fun. A teacher could teach them separately as a technique without the bellydance name attached to it if she was hampered by a conservative community. 5.The circular movements of the pelvis could be done during labor standing, leaning on a bed or table an on hands and knees. 6.Pregnant women learned better when I placed my hand on the area of the body where the movement needed to be corrected. I would stand next to them- touching- to have them mimic the undulation. This seemed to accelerate learning. 7.Physical balance and energy increased. 8.Attitude about their body improved. 9.Indigestion during pregnancy (a common occurrence) was almost always eliminated. 10.One woman reported that her baby would kick a lot when she lay down to go to sleep. She tried using bellyrolls during the night and it did quiet the kicking.”http://visionarydance.com/BDPregnPage.htmlhttp://visionarydance.com/birthdanceB.html(the main body is an excerpt, btw. sorry it’s so long, i shortened it quite a bit, but …)
- A: I’ve never heard it called that, but this might give a little more background…I’ve belly danced since I was four (family thing!) and I remember reading at some point that traditionally belly dancing is done only in the presence of other women (although men dance too; not sure where), until the wedding. Then dancers are often employed at the celebration to get the couple in the mood, and the bride’s training for doing it herself not only serves to arouse her husband but also helps her with pregnancy and childbirth later on. In any case, it’s definitely empowering!
- can i take flintstones complete vitamins instead of one a day women’s complete vitamins?
- Q: ok so im a little over 5 weeks pregnant and i was taking women’s one a day prenatal vitamins but they always make me throw up after i take them. gross i know! lol so my sister who just recently had a baby said that she took flintstones complete multi vitamins throughout her pregnancy because she had the same problem. i was wondering if anyone else heard that u can do this too. should i just wait till my prenatal visit to ask or do u think its ok to do? sorry i know its stupid but im just sorta worried about not taking a vitamin because this is my first pregnancy and i know they are very important to take to help the baby develop and what not.thanks guys!
- A: I went in because I had the same problem and my doctor recommended Flintstones as long as I took them twice a day. I have been taking them for about two months now and they are working great.
