Bring it on.

I had heartburn pretty bad the first few days after I started my PIO shots after my transfer. I know that heartburn is a side effect of P4 but then it went away for the past ten days or so. I figured my body was adjusting to the level of P4. Now it's back. Is this a symptom? If so, I welcome it with open arms!!!

For the past two days it's been almost unbearable for me to brush my teeth. I remember this from pgncy #2. Unfortunately there is no way around it as I have to brush my teeth every day. Does anyone have suggestions on getting through that chore? Mouthwash is out of the question. I gag just thinking of the taste. Blech.

I am thrilled to be having these (albeit minor) symptoms. We all know that m/s can be a sign of a healthy pgncy so I'll be sick for the full nine months if that means I'll deliver a happy and healthy baby. I'll puke morning, noon and night if I have to.

Ugh -- sorry about the toothpaste thing. The only time I ever threw up was from brushing my teeth! I hope it goes away soon!

I had trouble brushing my teeth too. I never figured out a solution and just lived with the gagging as best I could. I hope you figure something out!

No no! I used to wish for the puking, too, but believe me, you don't want it.

I hope you have some lovely simple symptoms--a sore boob here, a nosebleed there. Don't tempt the porcelain goddess!
