Am in my very early pregnancy and am spitting a lot , I tried to swallow but I fell sick strait away, I ve had this before with my DS 12 yrs ago, is there any kind of things to eat or chew, I work in public sector and I need to talk a lot, lol
And also any secret for constipation pls ,, my poo are like rabbit poo and so hard( tmi) thanks for your answers .
OK, for the spitting thing, there is nothing you can do, but it seems to be part and parcel of the morning sickness thing (you make more saliva when you are first pregnant!!) so it may go after the 12 weeks have passed.
The constipation you need to get on top of now or you will suffer.
I recommend the 3 Fs for constipation - Fruit, Fibre and Fluid!!
Fruit wise the best for constipation are small soft fruits - bananas will constipate you, so berries, cherries, peaches, plums, that sort of thing.
Fibre in the form of cereal is good, (also 'cos they are fortified with yummy folic acid!) but DO NOT eat fibre like cereals unless you are prepared to drink fluids (yes, boring but true). the Fibre has to have fluid to 'push everything through as that type of fibre is not actually digested so it just sits there making you feel worse.
if you get bloating, try some peppermint tea (may also help with the sickness!).
When is you scan lovely?
Hope that's helpful
Yes the excess saliva is one of the least appealing things about being pregnant. I suffered from that a bit probably up until week 16 or so I think. It's certainly gone now thank goodness (am 25 weeks now). When I did get it I basically tried to put it out of my mind, almost a kind of denial, as it made me feel sicker too!
Sad to say also that the constipation thing will only get worse! And the 3 Fs as mentioned by angeleyes is the only thing you can do although believe there are fibre remedies you can take too although don't know which ones.
Congrats on your pregnany anyway and hope all goes well.
