  • yes tell your doc
    no i do not think he would induce early, but you never know, ask his opinion

    i was very uneasy on my feet and fell a few times
    i would trip and fall over a crack in the sidewalk

    be careful, is your work physical at all?

  • If your doctor wants you on bed rest and you refuse your baby and your health is really badly at risk. A compromise depending on reason could be to wear a monitor at home that's automatically sent to dr. and maybe nurses' visits at home. Can you do computer work for your company from home bedrest?

    Or switch to that kind of job for length of pregnancy?

    Please be careful, talk in depth to your doctor. Make sure you listen to his words not only to his idea.

  • It sounds like sciatica to me and a doctor wont induce for it! Sorry:( I know its hard but its just your nerve getting pinched. As your baby drops down, the pressure should release a little but then you will have more pressure in your who ha
