1st Trimester

Ok be honest!!

Let's be honest are you living in a bubble for the next 9mths or are you just letting everyone think you are :)

Have you taken a bath?

Have you eaten a hotdog?

Have you drank soda?

Have you eaten deli meat?

Etc. (Other things they say or a big no no)

I have taken a bath. In the first few weeks its the only thing that helped with all the stretching and cramping. I took them with both my girls, and they are two healthy princesses. I have eaten a subway sub, and it was delicious, and YES I have had a Coke bc with my morning sickness (more like ALL day sickness) it seems to be the only thing that helps. This is my third and I didn't go all crazy with my other two. I always take precautions with everything I eat whether I am pregnant or not. I don't feel the need to live in a bubble for the next 9mths. I feel as long as I stay focused and eat healthy then all will be well :)

  • My bath and shower are the same, but I would take a bath if I had a separate tub. Not interested in hot dogs. I have had massive amounts of Sprite to settle my stomach but I don't like cola much any way. I have certainly had coffee. Deli meat doesn't really do it for me, except in paninis anyway, so I guess I'm pretty lucky.
  • Everything but the bath, and that's just because by the time I get DD down for the night, I'm just too tired to even think about a bath. I just go straight to bed.

    But just curious- Why no baths? That is just crazy talk. I am on my 3rd pregnancy and I have never heard this.

    ( do you mean hot tubs?)

  • Whoever told you that you can't take a bath lied. 
  • The thought of a hotdog right now omgggg eww!! I dont drink soda anyways pre-preg and I dont really take baths (no time!!)

    yes to everything else

  • Hotdogs...all the time.  I cook them, so what?

    Sodas...check.  I was drinking caffeine every day until I found out it was twins.  Now I'm being a little bit more cautious and trying to find non-caffeinated versions.  If I can't, I don't sweat it.

    Deli meat...Had Subway this weekend.  Yum.

    Bath...not yet.  I don't get a lot of alone time with my 15 month old.  I'm sure I'll take one soon though.  :-)

    Oh, and I'll be eating sushi the next time the grandparents take DS.

    The thought is no really hot baths.  As in, don't let your skin turn pink and your body temperature rise.  Otherwise, bathe away!

  • Have you taken a bath? Plenty. Baths are fine, they just can't be really hot.

    Have you eaten a hotdog? No. Just hasn't appealed. But I would (if it was cooked at home; I don't eat hot dogs from other places anyway)

    Have you drank soda? Here and there

    Have you eaten deli meat? No, not a fan.

    I also had a couple pieces of tuna sashimi at my fave place. I've been eating sushi since I was a child and never once gotten sick from it. (Now Taco Bell, on the other hand, had me so sick I couldn't get off the bathroom floor... and pregnant people eat that all the time!)

    Also, not really applicable to 1st tri, but as you get bigger, baths (and your balance) get trickier...I enjoyed relaxing in a tub but by the 3rd tri w/ twins, it was a bit challenging Wink

    Have you taken a bath? No, I don't do baths.

    Have you eaten a hotdog? No, I don't eat them.

    Have you drank soda? I just found out on Saturday but I had *tried* to reduce my intake for the past few weeks but I was still drinking it regularly.

    Have you eaten deli meat? I don't usually but we happened to have Schlotzky's on Saturday.

    Etc. (Other things they say or a big no no)

     

    I only found on Saturday and had actually thought we missed our chances this month, so I had a back xray due to a fall, eaten sushi, and probably did some other stuff that wasn't great, but hopefully our baby will be alright.

    I imagine so.  I'm not looking forward to that!  Maybe DH can install one of those medical lifts for me....ha!

  • Have you taken a bath?  No, but only because the hot water lately makes me lightheaded, regardless of if its in a bath or shower.  And really, does a lukewarm bath sound good to anyone?

    Have you eaten a hotdog?  No, but only because they haven't sounded good.  But I'll probably have at least one this summer!

    Have you drank soda?  Lots!  I've basically cut out caffeine due to a heart issue, but before that I drank it, just in moderation.  But I don't like coffee or tea so not getting any caffeine there. And for every drink of soda I take, I try to take at least two drinks of water right after.

    Have you eaten deli meat?  Once, but I did heat it up first.

  • All of those except for hot dogs (but I did have nitrate free brats).  Add sushi (with raw fish) and both blue and gorgonzola cheeses. 

     lisajay- if you have bodily fluids in your bath, you're doing it wrong ;)

    I hadn't ever heard of this until a few weeks ago and someone posted about soft-serve. I guess (and pls. don't quote me on this one) there' s a risk of some bacteria? I dunno, but I"m not giving up my fro yo. Too darn good.

  • No bath.

    Yes, one hot dog at a birthday party this weekend.  It was burnt and looked delicious.

    I'm living on Sprite.

    Haven't had any deli meats, but I'm not really avoiding them, I'm just not a big deli meat fan.  I typically pack leftovers for lunch.

    I have cut out all caffeine.  I miss it, but yes, I'm being paranoid where that is concerned.  We've had two losses, no live births and this IUI was our last shot thanks to insurance.

    Probably not.  I've seen that question come up I think at least twice on first tri this time.  It's just this board being... this board, I guess.

    You're only not supposed to take a bath if you're in labor and your water's broken, then it can introduce bacteria.  You're also not supposed to take a bath that's too hot because you don't want to raise your body temperature too much (which is why they say not hot tubs).

     

    And to answer the OP, yes to everything.  Caffeine, too.  Mmmm, coffee.

  • I haven't taken a bath but no real reason why. I have drank soda and eat deli meat regularly. No I haven't had a hotdog though but I am not against it.
  • Re: fro yo

    It has to do with the fro yo & soft serve machines and if they are being cleaned properly. For most of those machines it's a cleaning solution bath (for the machine) that's supposed to be done daily. In addition, how the leftover ice cream/ fro yo is stored is an issue.

    I used to work at an ice cream shop, and those machines aren't always cleaned as they should be...but like everything else, in moderation.
