Families practicing: Alternative & Natural Health; Attachment and Mindful Parent

So I found out a few weeks ago that I am pregnant with number 4. This came as a big suprise as my husband had a vasec. last April. So anyway I am now 10 weeks along and am due in Sept. So far I'm not feeling to bad just really bad headaches. I'm not to sure what to do about them so any suggestions would be welcome. Tired a lot but at least the morning sickness isn't bad this time. I think I have FINALLY learned how to deal with that so I'm doing something right. Just wishing the almost constant headache would go away.

Needless to say this has been an interesting past few weeks and is looking to be a grand adventure for our family.

Wasn't it Alex who wanted a baby? Children are powerful manifesters!!

Congratulations!!! I'm delighted for you all.

Magnesium can help headaches. Anna has mentioned the KEFIR helped with migraines. ;-)

Do you get your money back from the urologist who did the vasectomy?!

What?!! Congratulations to you all! Can't wait to see your little belly bump. We'll be at the rec center Friday to romp around. Would love to see you. Missy
I think we'll be there. no belly yet but it will be soon. I usually show really early. clothes get REAL tight around 3-4 months along.
Zach wanted another. He hopes for a girl for Skylar. I've been taking Magnesium anyway so I don't think that is it. I think mostly stress and tension. My shoulders and neck are super tight.
Wow! It's so exciting. There were two babies at the meeting last night and they were awfully cute :)

I'm sorry about the headaches. I bet we could find an acute remedy that would help. The Kefir is also good :)

Hope to see you soon.

WOW! Congratulations! I know that is a surprise, but you are right, you are just adding on to your exciting adventure! I'm sorry about your headaches, what a downer. I hope they go away so you can enjoy your pregnancy!
What a wonderful, surprising, big OOps--- congratulations!!! When is the official due date?

As for the headaches... if you can't find an acute remedy to help, keep in mind that Dr. Sandrine Martin, up in Cornelius, is the most incredible chiro/energy healer I have found. She has a website, www.chionline.com, if you want to see just how unique she is. She is amazing with pregnant women. I always think I don't need to go see her, and then she magically transforms me and I am so thankful I did go. The only drawback is the cost... she doesn't take insurance, but she gives you the receipts to submit yourself. I've found it's the one expenditure I simply won't give up for me and my little ones. I just space out our visits... :)

Best of luck, and congratulations again! I find myself daydreaming about a little baby... then remember my hubby had a vasec... but we never did get it double checked :)

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
