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.

If it's constant pain, you should try taking some Tylenol. It's normal to have cramps and aches as your belly gets bigger. Not only is your belly getting bigger, and therefore putting more pressure on your back, your muscles and ligaments are stretching more, which can cause soreness. I always started with half a dose of Tylenol.
