Food during labor

Ok all you experienced & wise mothers or midwives out there. Can anyone tell me why you can't have chocolate & citrus fruit while you are in labor? I had a tour of the birthing suites yesterday & the midwife said that we are allowed to eat during labour, just not chocolate or citrus fruit. I have searched on the net & have been unable to find anything on this.

False Alarm

Yesterday I had a bit of a false alarm yesterday. I had a violent coughing attack (choaking on my sandwhich) & suddenly there was a rush of water. Well at first I just thought it was pee, but then I started to wonder if it was my waters breaking. So just to be on the safe side I tottled up to the hospital & got it checked out. Thankfully it was just pee (embarassing though!!) but at least I also got a thorough check out. Everything is fine.

I'm in here

Just in case I wasn't aware of the fact that I had another person inside me that was taking up more and more room, Little One has been letting me know with plenty of kicking & punching and all sorts of other movements. Or maybe it's those renovations Mel mentioned would take place!!

Hay fever

Well it's that time of the year again when my eyes & nose itch & I can't stop sneezing. Problem this year is that due to being pregnant I can't take the normal medications. So after a rotten weekend I headed straight to the chemist first thing Tuesday morning to see if there was anything I could safely take. This was her advice...
* Stay inside with all the doors & windows shut. (Temp. around 28)
* Don't hang your washing outside
* Keep the dog inside
* Take a shower after everytime you have been outside

She did thankfully also give me some anti-histimines.
