Water retention
 
Hi guys.

Koteburo saying hello and still very pregnant to the point that now I have an equator :D
I'm retaining water like crazy and although I do know a number of natural remedies, herbs, dry flowers that help a lot some of them are not available in Calgary.
I know that pineapple blended with water, no sugar added, is good, I've tried it myself in the past so I'm going to start with that but I'll add a bit of baking soda since I'm experiencing SEVERE acid reflux.
What other herbs, fruits, etc available are there that you know of? I guess I could go to the health foods store and get some extracts of the ones I know (just thought of that) But I'm used to preparing infusions, chop, etc the herbs and flowers in their natural form either fresh or dry just like my grandma used to do it straight from her garden or from the wild (or the market)
As I'm typing this my legs and arms are throbbing and it hurts :( so I'll be happy with any presentation that works.
Any advice? New info and knowledge are always welcome :cat:

Yours truly
Fat and sore pregnant cat

Sad that you have to feel so bad to have a miraculous finish. I do not have any natural antidotes for you. Keep well, walk lots and wait....when are you due?

Dec 31st roughly according to the doctor
I have only 8 weeks to go

Holy catz! Not much advice, Koteburo, but do want to wish you well!

I've heard that a little apple cider vinegar in tea or juice can really cut down on the acid reflux. Have some friends that swear by it, but I've never tried it myself.

Thanks! :D

If you go for the Apple Cider buy the cider with the "mother". I buy organic made by Bragg. It has many healing properties in it. AAAAAAHHHHH, a New Years baby! The next 8 weeks will go by quickly.
