I sit most of the day as well, I wonder if that could be what it is. I try getting up and walking around because as I stated before after sitting for a while I get really uncomfortable, but they it is recommended that we sit more...so.. idk! I will definitely keep you posted. ? when you take meds or Tylenol do you take the recommended dosage for adults? I have Tylenol Extra strength at home I think, 500 mg each. I took 2 on Monday I think, really didn't help. Was that too much or not enough?View Thread
Im almost 23 weeks and I've had a backache since Sunday. I have tried every method under the sun to no avail. Well so I think!! I've tried warm baths, sleeping with a pillow in between my legs, sleeping propped up, pelvic rocking, walking, massages, ice compress and alternating with the heating pad, etc. I even took Tylenol and I DONT like taking meds, even before I was preggo. I even have a back pillow at work but I cant sit down for a long period of time without being uncomfortable. And today on Thursday I still have a backache.... What gives? I was told to call the nurse so I finally did a few minutes ago. Wonder what they will recommend?? Have any of you ladies gone through a constant backache?View Thread
I told my doctor right after my 8 week appointment. Mainly because I was very sick in the beginning and I wanted him to know why I was asking for half days and/or missing and like camnfaithsmom says if you're eligible for Short term leave/FMLA this protects your job. So thats one less thing you'd have to worry about.
I agree, my girlfriend told me to go and make an appointment anyway. That she was over the household limit as well and they gave it to her, she works and she's married with a working hubby. I hate wasting my time as well, and feel a little discouraged, because my income alone is over the limit in GA because I only have ONE child, even adding the new baby Im still over, but hey as I said in another post, it cant hurt to try.View Thread
I dont use anything, just regular lotion. I read somewhere that those Stretch Mark lotions do not work, and I believe it, as I used SO much of it with my first pregnancy and it did absolutely nothing View Thread
I was pregnant but didn't know it while watching this movie and O M G, I am not a cry baby AT ALL, it takes a LOT for me to cry, but this movie had me balling my eyes out. I am so sorry to hear about your nephew, hopefully a donor will become available asap. Dont watch this movie again! View Thread
