Pregnant!! Symptom relief
Hi doc

My early symptoms was spot on, I did a home pregnancy test on Sunday and it was positive. I went to buy two other brands, and they were also positive! We are so excited! My husband waited for the blood test we did yesterday before he wanted to believe it, and it said that I am 1-2 weeks pregnant!

I just wanted to know, my nipples are extremely sore, is there something I can rub on that will help with the sensitivity and that will not affect the baby? (It is normal to have such sore nipples, right?) Also, my colon has been very uncomfortable for a week now, it feels 'bloated' and very 'windy'. Is there something I can do about that at all?

Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do for the sore nipples. The bloating is normal too. Try eating plenty of fibre and drinking lots of water.
