Mother-in-laws are something that usually comes are part of the package with your husband. But what can you do when you just cannot seem to get along, and everything about her just rubs you the wrong way? Try and find a common interest between the two of you.

Why a common interest? When you share a common interest in something (whether it be the same television show, a love of cross stitching, or a favorite author) it creates a safe topic the two of you can discuss.

Safe topics can avoid that painful silence if the two of you have nothing to discuss, and they can also serve to redirect the subject if she brings up something you would rather not discuss with her.

And if you are lucky, this common interest can sometimes grow into something more, where you can actually start to develop a friendship based around the subject.

    PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS-Swollen batsres-Sore batsres caused by increasing levels of hormones. The soreness may feel more tender/swollen then how your batsres feel before your period.Nausea/vomiting-If you’re like most women, you’ll get morning sickness a month after conception, could start to feel queasy a lil earlier or not at all. I love how they call it morning sickness I had it off-and-on all day long, only for 3 months. The GOOD NEWS is, the more you feel nausea the better; your odds of a miscarriage decreases and that’s well worth it! If the N/V doesn’t getcha the sensitivity to odors may it’s normal to feel sick (even trigger gag reflexes) from different aromas, like bologna, bacon, coffee, onions or etc. Fatigue-Bouy, uou haven’t felt tired ’til you get pregnant! Increased levels of progesterone and stress your body goes through as it changes will leave you feeling drained. You may start to feel more energy in the 2nd trimester, but you’ll feel tired again in the 3rd trimester. (that’s what happened to me anyways)Frequent trips to the bathroom-Soon after becoming pregnant, having to go all the time a common symptom, because of the increased amount of blood and fluids, all processed in the kidneys and ending up in the bladder. This symptom may start as early as 6-7 weeks into your 1st trimester and continue through your pregnancy as more pressure is placed on your bladder due to your growing baby! So, stock up on the Charmin!Implantation bleeding-Some women have a lil bleeding about 11-12 days after conception. It may be caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the lining of the uterus (a process that starts 6 days after fertilization) but no one knows for sure. The bleeding is light and only a couple days. (Let your OB/GYN know if you notice even a lil spotting, especially if you have pain, since this can be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. You should see an OB/midwife at this point)Food aversions/cravings-Some women have cravings and some get what’s called food aversions. You know what cravings are? Aversions are the opposite, where suddenly you find foods you once enjoyed, completely GROSS! This feeling may come and go throughout your pregnancy. Have you ever heard of pica? Pica is a craving for ice, dirt, laundry soap, paint chips or other non-food items (may be an iron deficiency).Constant high temperature (for 18 days)-Not sure why probably the increase of hormones, fluids, stress and other changes going on. I’d sweat when everyone else was cold.A late or missing period-If you’re late make an appt to see an OB, if your not regular, then your first clues may be tender/swollen batsres, nausea and going to the bathroom more often if your not sure take a pregnancy test. Which leads to the last symptom YOUR PROOF![PROOF]Most home pregnancy tests aren’t sensitive enough to detect pregnancy until about 1 week after missing your period. Wait if the test is positive, make an appointment with an OB/midwife right away, buy prenatal vitamins [you need 800mcg folic acid], start looking to buy maternity clothes and stretch mark cream/baby oil with vitamin E.Take care and God bless!If you still have more questions look me up I’m due the 29th!!!
