whoooahhhhhhh....after 13 weeks i was celebrating. morning sickness had ceased!! i had energy at a level i forgot i ever had. no need for naps. i was feeling GREAT! then, enter 18 weeks. back pain galore. particularly on my right side. it didn't take me long to be introduced to sciatica nerve problems as well. i gave my husband a night job as a back rubber. while i was in the states i stocked up on a bunch of therma care heat pads and use one almost every night. and on really bad days, a little red wine goes a long way. i started going back to my yoga class 3 weeks ago and i think that's helping...a little.
yesterday my sweet hubby bought me a pregnancy massage and was on cloud 9. my friend joni told me to get a tennis ball and move up and down against the wall. does anyone else have any suggestions?? or is it like our friend carl put it, "it will go away...just give it another 4 months!!" YIKES!!!!
