    I don't know anything about being pregnant (thank goodness xD)... But I would still get it checked out. That much pain just can't be normal, you know?

    EDIT-Even if it is normal, at least you can have some piece of mind in knowing so.

    There are multiple things to help with morning sickness. I had it HORRIBLY for well over 7 months of my pregnancy. You can take B6 (ask doctor on correct dosage of it), but has to be taken daily and will take a few days to work. You can also ask your doctor about Zofran if it gets way past unmanageable. Pretzels help (I blame the salt) as well as saltines. Sprite is nice and easy on the stomach too (I couldn't keep water down, but Sprite always stayed down).

    As for the back pain it does sound like sciatic nerve. Ask your doctor first, but a girl I knew had to go to regular chiropractic appointments to help. Just be sure they are well versed with pregnant ladies. Massage would probably help some too.

    And congrats! Our little man is 7.5 months now, and he was totally not planned either ;) But we couldn't imagine our life without him now!

    Go see your doctor. It sounds like a pinched sciatic nerve which can be caused by how you turned or bent down and nothing to do with the pregnancy.

    Actually both caused totally opposite reaction (making things worse) for me...

    Zofran - yes, it does work!

    Oh boty....these are the reasons why I don't miss being pregnant.
    I was pregnant with triplets and I never thought my body could go through so much abuse as much as it did.
    For the first 3-4 months...I was throwing up something awful. If I saw a food advertisment on tv...I was in the bathroom. Smells of certian foods made me barf too....never mind a car ride to the doc's. I know my doctor gave me anti-nauseant pills and they did work wonders.

    As far has hip pain went...I didn't have any but I don know that my lower back and hips took a good beating but not to the point where I would agonize in pain. The only cure I had for that I was still working in the ambulance and a good doze of adrenline took all the pain away. When the adrenline wore off...it was a whole different story.

    I also went to the massage therapist and the chiropracter quite abit....to keep the muscles loose and nimble and to keep my bones straight. Which helped quite abit with my sore muscles.

    So...yeah....go to the doctor and see if you can get a prescription for anti-nauseant pills. If you can....have a massage therapist rub your lower back and then see a chiropracter (in one shot) because it's easier to adjust your lower back when the muscles are loose and relaxed and hopefully that will help with your hip pain.

    I never had morning sickness with my daughter. I had very mild back pain but that was it, nothing compared to what you are describing. I would check with the doctor just to make sure nothing serious is going on. Congrats on the pregnancy! Hope all goes well! I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second :)

    I had lower back pain and just two acupuncture treatments made it manageable. However , if you are really in pain , even when you do not move, is it remotely possible that you have an ecotropic pregnancy? Where the feotus is outside the uterus.? Have you kept up on you prenatal dr visits?

    It sounds like a trapped nerve or some other similar problem - maybe as your posture is changing the muscles and ligaments are struggling to keep up - you should see a doctor because that much pain needs attention and taking over the counter medications is not a good idea

    I want to share that prenatal yoga was the BEST thing I did when I was expecting. Clear any activity with your doctor, of course. The movements were gentle and geared toward alleviating the "symptoms" of pregnancy. And the environment was so loving and supportive. If you couldn't do all the movements then that was totally OK! But just being there was motivational and provided quiet time to connect with your baby.

    I know you said you moved back home to save money and this might not be in your budget. However I will say that NOTHING is more important than your health during this time. So I would cut back in another expense area, if possible, to pay for this if it is something that may be a good option for you.

    Oh dear, yes get yourself to a doctor. If nothing else you'll have peace of mind.

    A story to keep you entertained in the meantime...

    DH and I got preggers three *cough, cough* months before we got married. I wasn't supposed to be able, was on the pill, and we were pretty careful. So when we found out we were FLOORED. I had come to peace with the "fact" that I couldn't and kids weren't something either of us particularly wanted. I handled pregnancy terribly, soooo not my thing!

    I was sick as a dog up until 6/7 months. The only thing that helped me was fried potatoes, LOL! I had to eat 24/7 or else I was in the bathroom, I gained wayyyy too much weight. I was incredibly swollen in the end and so pinched that I couldn't feel below my armpits.

    Then when I went in 11 days overdue the nurses were calling in each other to "look at the biggest belly they'd ever seen!" Um what about triplet bellies?
    When they hooked me up the nurses freaked out because my contractions were at the top of the chart, I couldn't feel a thing.
    Doctor checked me out and said c-section because it was going to be an 8 pounder, no way my tiny hips could deliver that... They gave me an epidural for the procedure, OMG! It was after it kicked in that I realized how much pain I actually had been in!

    My DD weighed 11 lbs and 2 ounces, was nearly 25 inches long! She was the first baby any of the doctors had c-sectioned that had its eyes open watching the entire process XO!

    HA! I had a 3 month old!

    Hang in there... Time will fly and everyone is right, the pain and misery will be long forgotten as soon as he/she is in your arms!
