Please help

Hi I have posted many times, I am now nearing the end of my first trimester but am starting to have major back pains. About 6 months or so ago I was diagnosed with a herniated disk in my back. I was being treated by a chiropractor and some meds, but now that I am pregnant, I do not know if I will be able to continue those meds. I quit taking them as soon as I found out about my condition, and the pain is only getting worse.

It is so bad sometimes that I cannot even walk or get out of bed. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and if they were able to take anything for it, or if there is some other things I can do to relieve the pain.


First Month

Well here I am newly married (3 months) and a sophmore in college. My husband and I were on the pill and had no intentions of trying to get pregnant until after I graduated. Well...I found out I was pregnant this week! What a shock! I had a ruptered ovarian cyst about 2 months ago and was put on a different kind of pill. So I was having some cramps and had to go to the bathroom about a million times and decided to take a test. I bought a cheap one and it came back positive. Since I was in shock I went out and bought another one.

Well both positive and after a doctors visit with blood tests...all positive. I am about 4-5 weeks along! I had no clue when my last period was so they are guesstimating until further advancement.

Well good luck and God bless to all expecting mothers out there. What a joy and blessing surprises from God bring =)


help! tired of being moody and mad

My girlfriend became extremely moody to the point that we broke up. The pregnancy was planned and we were/ are very happy about it. It seems as though she had what they call a "hormonal storm". I never thought something like that could happen, but she seems to have come out of it part way anyhow. We are back in the same bed together and things are almost like it never happened. I have tried to be very understanding and love her so much and just want to help her through it.

This "hormonal storm" started to clear up at around the four month mark. I try to make her as comfortable as possible, by giving her a lower back rub for about 45 minutes at a clip every other night without any sexual overtures. On the other nights I give her foot massages for no less than 45 minutes, I also include the lower legs and backs of the knees. She really seems to enjoy both!

I guess I will hang tough and see where it all goes, I certainly do not want to lose her and want to do everything to make her comfortable.

Kimberly - I don't know that I have any helpful advice about your husband, but you're right - he's being a jerk. First of all, have you taken a home pregnancy test yet? Is this your first pregnancy? I just cleared the 9th week of my first pregnancy - a planned one - and my husband and I both had reactions that surprised us (and that weren't always positive). After 5 weeks of knowing that we are pregnant I just now feel like we are _starting_ to accept this huge shift in our lives. It's a lot to digest. But it's unfortunate that your husband is taking out his stress about it on you. How would he react if you told him to get his own lazy behind out there and walk the dog...and that he'd better start pulling his weight if he wants to be a dad? Turn the tables on him. Who wouldn't respond well to such an incindiary attack? ;-) Like I said, I don't have much in the way of good advice, but I'm rooting for ya; I hope at least a little encouragement will be helpful.
