  • Don't worry yourself about it if it comes and goes don't think too much of it take a low dose of Tylenol and relax too much worrying is only going to make it worse. What you are going to end up doing is making a somewhat thing into a huge mungus thing. Or get your DH to give you a rub down on around your neck area and back of your head...mmmm! That sounds so good I think I will go and ask my dh to do  It is so relaxing I hope you feel better I know you will be fine. Just don't worry. GL high five

  • The back and leg thing sounds like sciatica (happened to me around 20 wks as well). It usually goes away when the baby comes, but mine has yet to go away :-( Some people keep it. For the headache, probably just hormones. Take some tylenol like PP said.
