  • Yep, what they said. The only thing safe is tylenol, or tylenol pm if you need to sleep too. From the paper work I got from my DR., it says no more than 8 per day. HTH.

  • Tylenol. Going to the chiropractor is safe & more helpful than pain meds IMO - I went every 2 weeks and it helped soooo much.

  • Just Tylenol. Your doc can prescribe percicet for you, I got that during pregnancy when I had kidney stones! But don;t take that unless your doc says that its okay! I did take IBprofen once, 9 months along...had a horrid backache and in a wedding. I needed it :) So that is probably okay ONCE in awhile :) So, stick with Tylenol ;)

  • Tylenol. As for the bath make sure it's not super hot. Extreme heat can cause heart problems in adults but particularly fetuses.
