I was in a car wreck 33yrs ago when I was 17. I got pregnant at 29. My back was broken in 5 places T-5, 6, 11, 12, & L-1 my spinal cord was bruised at T-5 & 6 which were crushed. I am an incomplete paraplegic. The hardest part of being pregnant for me was when I reach 7mons. transferring on and off the toilet because you get heavier, and of course the baby is laying on your bladder. I was wet all the time didn't go out much. lol I had pain in my back at that point as well. I told God I couldn't take it any more and at that point I had my child a healthy baby girl who is now 19. It is rough but you will get through it ok. Do you have a good support system in place?View Thread
Thanks for that information. I went to the site and I see that there are a lot of products that say Bone Strength. Which one are you referring to exactly? Could you post the links? I'm in need of this stuff now my doctor wants me to go on Actonel and I'm terrified of the stuff.View Thread
