For some strange reason I found that drinking and eating coca cola and Ruffle potato chips during pregnancy really helped me to control nausea and in particular, heartburn. When my grown son required Chemo therapy for cancer treatment I told him to try it to help with the nausea. He did try it and it helped enough that he was able to eat, prior to doing that he was barely eating anything as a way to avoid the vomiting. I have no idea why this helps.

I am 34 weeks pregnant and I have been in the hospital for two weeks now on bedrest. I had a kidney stone a month ago and my cervix shortened and now I have been receiving injections every two to three days to stop contractions and now I have another kidney stone and have dilatated to a one now so am I likely to have my baby sooner than later.

I have a baby of 30 weeks in me. I could notice my baby reacting to music. It is really wonderful and amazing which is really making me thrilled. This is making even my spouse happy and we are eagerly waiting for our baby.
