Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How snug is too snug to wear my support belt? Will it hurt the baby?

I am 5'1 and 115 (well now 125) 16 weeks pregnant. I bought the "Ultimate Maternity Support Belt," in hopes to alleviate my back pain. I like it snug (enough to leave a mark after I take it off), but will this hurt the baby? How tight it too tight? Thanks ladies!

You need to be comfortable and able to breathe in it.  The baby is down there in a little water-filled cocoon.  I don't think that wearing a support belt snugly would bother it.  If you are uncomfortable then it's probably too tight, but as long are you are comfortable the baby should be too.

Thanks so much for putting this paranoid first time mother at ease :)
