User :   but when Dr. like we stay alone here and she is so tired of this spitting thing.. like sometimes she even says that vomitting was better than this spitting:-)
Doctor :   i get what you are tell me but these changes are only temporary once the growth becomes largely abdominal they will subside
User :   so when can we expect some improvement?
User :   some ppl told me like it will be the same throught the 9 months
Doctor :   ask her to swallow her saliva since spitting will not help her
Doctor :   no no it should settle in 1-2 months time
User :   i aske dher to do so but she says it is very bitter and if she swallos she may vomit
Doctor :   take some sweet substaces like honey or juice they will temporarily help her
User :   she is continoiusly eating something or the other like she is eating Polo. but too much of mint is also not good, right?
Doctor :   yes thats why i suggest you to give her some liquids
User :   liquieds like??
Doctor :   juice honey vegetables fiber diets
