Its autumn allready, time goes so fast and I only have so little of it XD. So here some updates about what happened in my life recently.
– Anarosa, ofcourse been growing and growing and producing lots of diapers too ofcourse LOL but yeah shes not a newborn anymore. I stopped breastfeeding here when she was 3 months and when shes 4 months we will start introduce real food to her besides milk. In my gallery you can find now a section with pics from her by the way :). I will ofcourse update and add pictures there whenever I feel like it.

-The house, yeah the house, we still had a lot of thingsthat needed be done since the last time I posted about it and even when we now did a lot again, still a lot needs to be done. Anarosa her room is mostly done now. The plints need to be added and we still want to buy a new commode for her room and ofcourse the curtains to finish it off. a few planks on the wall to put some decorations and thats done. The living room just needs curtains mainly and my crossstitch painting on the wall. also we dont have the money yet and havent found yet real nice vitrines that we can hang on the wall like the ones we have seen at ikea before they took it out of the collection. The table in the kitchen is there now too and we need to add only 3 more chairs there and ofcourse some curtains in the window too. we have replaced the refrigerator for a bigger one with a freezer so we can finally keep our leftovers a bit longer and are not forced to eat them the next day :).

Well I guess thats as much as all the updates now, more news whenever !


Stomach Acid Burn

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

So I’m 11 weeks and 5 days pregnant now and I’m still as sick as a dog.  Aside of that I feel acid burn in my stomach all day and night too.  So I have been looking into information that will relieve this. I have not tried all the tips that I have found and that have been given to me but I’m not desperate  enough yet XD. I’m throwing up a lot I am taking a med prescribed by my doctor on advice of my midwife. Its called “Emesafene and is helping me to keep my food in XD. Milk is not very helpfull I have noticed when you have trouble keeping your food in . So I am trying to avoid that.. Although I could be completely wrong doing so.

The things I have tried and have helped me I have written in green.

Things I have not tried yet but have been said to help I have noted down in blue.

Things to avoid eating and drinking I have marked with red.

I hope I can help some people here with the information that I have here for you.

  • What helps me a lot is Peppermint. Peppermint binds the stomach acid. Also tea with menthol is known to be effective.
  • When you lay down in bed it helps to have the head of the bed somewhat lifted up so u don’t lay completely flat.
  • Avoid eating  food that contains a lot of fat or too spicy food or simply you ate too much food. If you eat too fast it can cause acid burn as well.
  • Chewing on some oat flakes, almonds, or brown bread softens the pain and eventually can stop it.
  • I’m dutch and we have a dessert here known as “vanille vla” and which babelfish translates as Custard is supposed to bind the stomach acid too which then relieves the pain.  Just spoon it in slowly :). I’m gonna test this myself soon.
  • Avoid thinking about food it sounds weird but it really helps.
  • A knife tip of cinnamon is given as a tip as well. I have not tried this yet.
  • Ive also read somewhere that a glass raw potato juice on a sober stomach in the morning is supposed to help, again, I have not tried this myself.
  • Eat small portions  throughout the day instead of heavy meals 3 times a day. I eat about every 4 hours a little bit and it helps me a lot.
  • No smoking (perfect reason to stop in case your not pregnant right?) No alcoholic drinks, no orange juice, drink less coffee and avoid drinking  sodas with bubbles.
  • Warm milk, I have added a lil honey for the taste and here in holland they sell anis blocks, they suposed to have positive effects on stomach problems. So as soon as we bought those i try warm milk with anis.

If you have any helpful tips that can ease the pain of stomach acid burn please don’t  hesitate to leave a reply here, I be glad to add it to the list and perhaps even try it myself at the moment.


11 weeks and 2 days “Hypoglycaemie”

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

Yesterday  the results of my bloodtest came in and my midwife called and told me I have to go back to the hospital because of a so called “hypoglycaemie”. That basically means that the sugar in my blood is too low. Thats the oposite of the disease thats known as sugar/diabetes thats when your sugars are too high and you have to take insuline shots to keep it stabil. Now with a too low sugar I have read that you do not have to take insuline shots but maintain a very strict diet to keep your blood sugars stabil. That diet is not so bad at all and contains just normal food but it does mean that I do have to forget about eating certain things and have to change to another product on another thing.

Now its not 100% sure yet that thats what I have, so today I go back to have more blood taken from me. I do not know yet how much I do know that they gonna take my blood two times. I am not alowed to have eaten anything so I will go first thing in the morning. This is going to be difficult for me because I feel very sick if I dont eat and then I have to throw up all the time also I need to take my medication for my stomach problems after I eat something… Anyhow, they will take my blood first thing and check that most likely right away in the lab in the hospital. then I will get some sugarwater or somethign to drink and they will take my blood again to see how my body responds to it.

I have done some research on it and looking at all the symptomes I do think its very possible that this is excactly what I have. I really hope not but we have to wait and see.  In case I indeed have a too low bloodsucker then I will bring another post with of course some links to medical pages that explains exactly what it is and what to do about it and whats gonna happen with me.

So this is going to be a little adventure for me… One that I do not look forward too. o.o; wish me luck o.o;
