Why the hiccups?: Hiccups, intermittent contractions of the diaphragm/intercostal muscles, are usually self-limited. Physical maneuvers that may help include: breath holding, sipping cold water, pulling on the tongue, gargling w/ water, swallowing a teaspoon of dry sugar, pulling knees to chest or leaning forward to gently compress the chest. Hiccups >48 hours may be serious. See your doctor.

Scars of infertility: Adhesions (inner scarring) develop after abdominal surgeries and can cause infertility if fallopian tubal distortion occurs. The degree of adhesion formation after a cesarean delivery varies widely among individuals. There is no strong evidence that 1st-time C-sections cause infertility. In one study, only 7% of 1st C-section, but 68% of 3rd-time C-section patients developed adhesions.

Carbohydrate Counts: 1 serving of carbohydrate equals 15 grams of carbohydrate. Look at the nutritional information on the package or google it for fresh foods. For example, 1 slice of bread has 15 grams of carbohydrates, thus 1 slice is 1 carb serving. If you are trying to eat a low carb diet, eat no more than 2 carb servings per breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eat no more than 1 carb serving per snack.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thanks for taking the time to give me some insight. I was diagnosed 4 years ago and re-examined and had a blood draw. I didn't have a clue what the blood draw was for.
