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.

I am 26 weeks, my whole body is aching and I am weezing. Help!

1 answers
I am 26 weeks with my second, and my whole body is aching. I have had a headache for 3 solid days, my neck and entire back are aching. I have numbness and tingling in my legs. If I sit for too long in the same position (for more than 30 minutes) they go completely numb! I am weezing and coughing too. I am miserable and just looking for advise.

It sounds kind of like the flu to me but I don't know for sure. I would definitely say call your dr and let them know what is going on. The whole numb thing especially. It sounds like the baby may be pressing on some nerves too. The dr can tell you what meds are safe to take for the coughing and wheezing and they will know if its anything major to be concerned about. I know you can use vicks vapor rub and the vicks44 cough medicine. I think robitussin and musscinex are both safe also. I hope you get to feeling better and that everything is ok! Good luck sweetie :)
