Hello mylot friends, it's been awhile since I had started a personal discussion. The thing is I'm on my 2nd month of pregnancy. I feel a lot of discomforts lately, I couldn't focus in front of the pc. I lost my sense of taste and don't know what I want to eat. I'm confused and feeling sleepy all the time. For those who already passed this stage, please could you give me some tips and suggestions to feel better. I don't want to sleep a lot, but I couldn't drink coffee either. And what foods could I eat in between meals that would keep me feeling full but not heavy? Could I do some special exercise to boost my energy? I've got a history of miscarriage before.

bananas are great for giving you a great boost of energy, i used to eat them myself when i was pregnant and feelin a bit tired also (if you can) take a nap during the afternoon just to recharge your batteries as they say

The symptoms you are feeling now are part of your pregnancy. You will still have other signs and symptoms to encounter until you give birth. Every trimesester...you will discover something new in your body. You should ask for your OB for a diet that is appropriate for your weight and your baby as well. But fruits are always the best option paricularly the ones with high water content such as watermelon / cantaloupes....these are very light but can fill you up real fast. For exercise...you can just do some brisk walking 10-15 minutes a day...that can help you stay healthy as well. If you have had a miscarriage prior to this pregnancy...ask your physician to for an appropriate exercise program...it's part of your check up as well as a dietary prescription.

Wow! That's the most professional tip I got. I really do believe in personal experiences. And I find it more soothing to eat fruits like watermelon. And yes, I have to visit my Ob for more info, though my husbands' nephew is only a chat away from us. And he and his wife are OB. Yes, I'll seek their professional advice about this matter. Thanks a lot and God bless you.

You're wonderful, thank you. I'll heed your advice. So you see I appreciate everyone who gives me hints and tips since I'm only with my husband overseas. I'm far from my mother and other sisters, and I'm confused of what to do. I like toasted too, but I need to pressure myself about my oatmeal. I like eating fresh oranges, maybe I'll squeeze it more to make a juice. Thank you, hugs to you. God bless.
