  • Check the box for warning details if any. I really think you are OK to use them.

    Try not to wear very high heeled shoes, They are not good for your back. Besides, they can be dangerous (you could fall).

    Congratulations on your pregnancy!

  • I'm sorry you're still having pain :-( It's safe to take Tylenol while pregnant too if you need to.

  • ive heard that back pain is normal during pregnancy... esp in the beginning middle and end! lolol be careful with the icy hot if its medicated u might not be able to use it ..read the directions and such on the back... maybe try a regular heating pad and some tylenol
