  • as for your back pains use most heat: a warm shower or fill a sock with rice and microwave it for a min when the heat is moist it helps relax the muscles more so then just normal dry heat like a heating pad. and keep your feet up. you can also take tyelonl but i know it didnt help my back one bit.

  • just sitting low.. i had the same issues at the same week.. it'll lighten up here in a bit until he/she gets bigger and has no other choice but to spread everywhere.

  • with both my pregnancies, it seemed like as soon as i knew i was pregnant i felt tons of pressure real low. its just how your carrying is all. but if your real concerned discuss it with your doc.

  • That's normal. It may not be that you can't remember, this pregnancy might be different than the last one. You are an older lady now, pregnancies get more and more difficult with age. Teens pop babies out no problem, in your 20's you feel the strain on your body, in your 30's pregnancy takes a toll. I haven't been pregnant past my 30's, the last baby taught me a lesson! Good luck!
