Today’s Real Mom Dilemma is one all of us mama’s or mama’s to be can identify with – pregnancy aches and pains! Mama to be R is upbeat but is in need of some suggestions to help her through the rest of the pregnancy. And I KNOW you all will have some tips of her. If you are new to The Wise Baby, Real Mom Dilemmas are real problems that come from real moms. We post them here in hopes that our other mom readers can lend their advice and experience to help another mom out. Be sure to leave a comment on this post with your advice, experience or even issues of your own. If you have a dilemma you’d like to see featured, send it to me here (we never use real names!).
Hi Wise Moms! I am 24 weeks along with our first baby! (yay!) I have had a pretty pleasant pregnancy for the most part but am just curious about a few things…
- Headaches – any remedies to help with the headaches? I have tried Tylenol but it doesn’t help too much. I am trying to avoid too much caffeine.
- Sleeping – I know it is a common complaint but any tips on how to get comfy? I am assuming this will only get tougher.
- Back pain – my back pain isn’t too bad and it could be how I am sleeping but I wondered if anyone had any secrets to combat the back pain. I do work an office job so am at a desk 8+ hours a day.
Obviously, I am a huge Wise Baby fan but I would love to know what books any of y’all read before your little one arrived. People have suggested several to me (The Happiest Baby on the Block, What to Expect, etc) but I am not sure if it is worth it?
I hope I don’t come off as complaining because I am really enjoying being pregnant and can’t wait for the arrival of our little one. I feel like I asked a lot of questions so any and all advice would be tremendously helpful! Thanks so much!
