If your pregnancy is anything like mine, it comes with its share of irritations. Little physical discomforts that aren’t debilitating or even worthy of raising with the doctor but are annoying. Swollen sinus passages that make getting oxygen at night an adventure in mouth breathing. Constant rumblings of intestinal gas. Heartburn. The kind of things that you wish would go away or at the very least, subside enough that they’re not quite SO obvious to your partner. I mean, let’s face it, pregnancy gas is probably the leading destroyer of mystery in a marriage.
I’m now two-thirds of the way into my second pregnancy and through some trial and error, I’ve come up with a few good home remedies for the little nuisances that plague me. Not for gas, unfortunately but for some of the other things.
You might not find any of these ideas in any pregnancy book or literature that your doctor hands out, but they all work for me and none of them can harm you or the baby!
