We are right in the middle of pregnancy. And while I am the one carrying this little
girl, let’s be honest – the whole family is actually doing this together. My little man doesn’t get carried around as
much and mom can’t really bend over to help get toys out from under the couch
and my big man has to help carry more of the household load because I am either
exhausted or sick. They are both
troopers and I am so thankful for them.
FORTUNATELY, this pregnancy I discovered magnesium and the
joy that it brings.Seriously.SO GOOD.It lessened my morning sickness significantly during the first
trimester. I started out by placing epsom salts in my bath.
While the epsom salts were wonderful, I really felt like I was needing more. I ordered some magnesium spray and began to apply it topically. Ancient Minerals is the brand that I chose to order. And with it I felt a little more relief from dreadful morning sickness.
However, once the second trimester hit, the muscle cramps
ALL over my belly started up again.It’s
like when summer returns and you see that first mosquito.You remember how much you hate them and know
they will be there for the WHOLE SUMMER.And maybe longer if you live in the south.So, muscle cramps = awful.
I did more research about magnesium and I read that during
pregnancy, your body has a harder time processing magnesium and so you need to
increase your dose.At that point my
skin was drying out from the topical spray, so I added in Natural Calm.It is a magnesium supplement that you add to
water and drink.It actually tastes
really yummy, which helps since it still is hit or miss on what I can eat (ie:
keep down).The flavor I have is lemon
raspberry. It is slightly sweet and very refreshing.Another plus? After 10 minutes of drinking
it, my muscles cramps ease up and then disappear.GLORY HALLELUJAH!
This gem is the reason I can sleep at night.That and my giant horseshoe shaped
pillow- but that’s another story.
And magnesium is NOT just for pregnant ladies! It is for
everyone!Your body needs magnesium for
nerve and muscle function, for healthy bones, fighting constipation, muscles
pains and cramps, to support your heart, to help your body absorb minerals, and
help you sleep.There are about 300 biochemical
reactions in your body that need magnesium.
Why are you still listening to me ramble?! Go order your
magnesium today! You won’t be sorry.
