  2. Hi Jenni!
    I am just about 8 weeks and I have a pretty bad cold going on :(
    Do you have any advice on how I can feel better without stressing baby out?

      I am 15 weeks pregnant and have horrible mornkng sickness still. I can hold down bland foods like baked potatoes with nothing on it but maybe some salt and quinoa. I boil chicken but I don’t add anything to it at all and eat it plain. I lost about 7 lbs but I am finally gaining some weight 2lbs woohoo! Hope it helps you!

      Talk to your OB about checking you for gastric reflux. I thought I had long term morning sickness. It was reflux. I couldn’t eat, I lost 25 lbs in about 6 months and my child had complications. Morning sickness past the first trimester should be checked. They gave me OTC zantac. But see your doc for sure.

    You’re actually not supposed to get massages during your 1st trimester because it can harm the baby.

    Massages, no… Prenatal massages, yes. Myths and liability spawn this ideology. Prenatal massage therapists are taught what they can and can not do. Basically the lower pelvic area is to be avoided, no deep tissue, avoiding labor inducing pressure points etc. Anyway there is protocol, you should find a MT trained in this area, I’m sure Jenni has.
